I’d understand if you don’t want my advice this week.
To open the season, I gave the brilliant recommendation of sitting Sammy Watkins against the Jaguars. Those who complied missed out on 198 receiving yards and three touchdowns. While a low floor remains, he’s a must-start against any opponent while Tyreek Hill recovers from a clavicle injury.
But hey, hopefully readers at least played Dak Prescott and Delanie Walker in Week 1. Although those two can stick in starting lineups, gamers shouldn’t fall into the trap of operating solely on last weekend’s results. Some outcomes are telling. Others, however, hinged more on the opening draw. Let’s examine how managers should handle a few notable players following an up or down start.

Jared Goff (LAR) vs. NO: QB12 ECR
Frequenting the sit section last week, Goff went a mediocre 23-of-39 for 186 yards, one touchdown, and a pick against Carolina. Including the postseason, he has offered more than one passing touchdown in just one of his last nine contests. That includes an NFC Championship Game overtime victory at New Orleans in which he posted 297 yards through the air.

Don’t overreact to a poor Week 1. Goff is a matchup play, and this is the right matchup.

Jameis Winston (TB) at CAR: QB17 ECRUnlike Goff, Winston’s woeful Week 1 can’t be shrugged off so soon. Last Sunday’s three interceptions marked the 17th multi-pick outing of his career. He has 17 in a dozen games dating back to the start of 2018. The poor opening also came with his lowest yards per attempt average (5.2) since November 5, 2017. The Panthers proved more adept at stifling the pass than anticipated against Goff, and they’ll play host once more this weekend. Winston could easily bounce back with a massive stat line, but there are too many capable passers out there to deal
