Sunday Morning Coming Down: Three team units to track in Week 2

Matt Harmon looks at three team units to heavily track in Week 2 to understand whether they are for real in or not and what the fantasy ramifications would be. 

With the opening week of the NFL season always comes a handful of lies. The pro football season in itself is a small sample size with just 16 game for any team in a regular season, but one game can easily produce plenty of flashes in the proverbial pan. With the reactionary nature of the sport’s audience and media, we often see a week’s worth of results blown out of proportion.

On the other hand, sometimes what we see are “new realities” unveiling themselves. A new season can bring a turning of the leaf for a select bunch of teams, units or individual players. Occasionally these Week 1 revelations are just that and we should take them seriously.

The trick for fantasy owners is deciphering which side does each Week 1 vision fall into. The danger in writing off a revelation as a mirage is that come Week 4 or 5 when you’re finally ready to buy in, the edge will be gone. Your league mates will know to hold players from these newly elite offenses and DFS sites will now price-up players going against these defense that reveal themselves to be sieves.

Here we’ll look at three units that thrived in Week 1 and attempt to gauge whether they’re for real or not. All three face new tests in Week 2, so be sure to track them during the games set to kick off soon.
