It’s Week 2 of the 2012 NFL season, and what a week we had to start the season! We saw a jaw-dropping debut from Robert Griffin III, the New England Patriots are reloaded, and the Tampa Bay Buccaneers appear to have a hard-hitting defense again. We finally got to see several teams and players in action who we had several questions about going into this season, but be careful not to overreact after one week.
Here are our “Fantasy Football Start ‘Ems” for Week 2 of the 2012 season. As a reminder, everyone knows to start elite players like Aaron Rodgers, Calvin Johnson, and LeSean McCoy, so when we compile our list we make sure to focus on serviceable players that will benefit from a favorable matchup.
New England Patriots vs. Arizona
The Patriots showed off their improved defense last week against the Titans, wreaking havoc on Jake Locker and clamping Chris Johnson to just four yards on 11 carries. They allowed a total of 20 yards rushing and made the Titans predictable, forcing them to keep pace with New England’s offense. The Cardinals managed just 43 yards rushing against the Seahawks at home and now have to travel to Gillette Stadium where visitors have historically not played well.

Dallas Cowboys at Seattle
Rob Ryan’s defense was impressive last Thursday, keeping Eli Manning in check with just 213 yards and sacking him three times; most of all, they never gave up the big play. Jerry Jones’ investment in the Dallas secondary has already paid dividends–for one week, anyway. Now they’ll face rookie Russell Wilson who wasn’t sharp in his debut, completing just 53% of his passes.
