Welcome to Bruno Boys Ernie’s fantasy football week in review, a weekly installment where he summarizes the aftermath of the past Thursday and Sunday games, but more importantly makes 10 observations and their lasting fantasy impact.

Week 2 - 2017

It was a week full of ugly football as many games played out as expected but to brutally ugly results. Injuries messed up a lot of what could have been better games, which in turn would have given us fantasy football players more to be excited about. But as we break down another week of NFL football, we are reminded that while it’s not always pretty, there’s always something to learn that will help us down the road.


1. DeShaun Watson is making a lot of GMs look foolish

Paging fans of the Cleveland Browns, Chicago Bears, San Francisco 49ers, and even Kansas City Chiefs. All of them will be second-guessed if what we’ve seen out of Watson the last two weeks is just a taste of what is to come. Consider this, Watson has been able to turn around this offense with only having DeAndre Hopkins and Lamar Miller. Watson’s first start was a win on sheer guts by him and his legs. His tight ends have been banged up and he just got Will Fuller back in the fold this past week. Needless to say, this is probably the last week you’ll be able to grab him off waivers if he’s not already taken.


2. The Cardinals are stuck in throw only mode

I was asked a lot by our live chat room about Carson Palmer and I repeatedly gave this bit of advice. They have to throw, there’s no run game to speak of and their best running back is Andre Ellington whose biggest contribution is… catching the ball. This doesn’t mean that the Cardinals are going to score a lot of points though. Since losing David Johnson, they’ve failed to reach 20 points for the third straight game and have squeaked by with two overtime wins to the Colts and Niners. I also felt that Phil Dawson would have a big game because as good as one dimensional teams are, they cannot convert every time when that’s all they have. More on this below.
