Sep 14, 2012
It’s only been one week in the 2012-13 season and already people are claiming that New York Jets quarterback Mark Sanchez has finally arrived. Can we all stop overreacting to everything this guy does? Sure Sanchez had three touchdowns against the Buffalo Bills but that doesn’t suddenly make him Tom Brady or Aaron Rodgers. Sanchez still has very real issues passing the ball, and those issues will be exploited this week against a Pittsburgh Steelers defense bent on revenge after getting dominated last week by the Denver Broncos.
However, Sanchez is just one of many big names on our Week 2 Fantasy Football Sit ‘Ems article. Take a look below to find out who else we recommend benching this week.
TEAM DEFENSE - SIT ‘EM
Denver Broncos D/ST at Atlanta
The Broncos defense performed admirably last week against the Steelers, limiting Roethlisberger to a 55.0 percentage, sacking him five times and forcing a pick six. The Broncos defense won’t play as well against the Atlanta Falcons this week. Atlanta is so efficient on offense now that not only did they put up 40 points on the Kansas City Chiefs last week, but the Chiefs’ only redeeming statistic from their defense was one forced fumble and one sack. The Falcons may not put up 40 on the Broncos, but don’t expect turnovers and sacks like Denver had last week.

Seattle Seahawks D/ST at Dallas
In their Week 1 win over the Giants, the Cowboys only ended up with 24 points but it could’ve been so much more. The Cowboys racked up 433 yards of offense on New York, including 143 rushing yards and 290 passing yards. The Giants only intercepted Dallas quarterback Tony Romo once and sacked him twice. The Seahawks simply don’t have enough playmakers to stop the Dallas offense. Also, with the Seattle offense expected to struggle the defense could see a lot of time of the field, and playing against Dallas is exhausting enough as it is without having to constantly be on the field.
