Fantasy Football: Week 2 studs and duds

Eli ManningThere were many outstanding performances in Week 2, some were even record-breaking. Some with names that you probably don’t even have on your roster. And then there were those that disappointed the owners who drafted them so soon (and in most cases so high) on draft day. Here is a list of both studs and duds that stood out last week:


Eli Manning-QB-Giants- Against a pretty good defense that had given up only 10 points to Cam Newton and the Panthers a week earlier, Eli and the Giants teed off for quadruple that amount on Sunday at Met Life Stadium. Down by as many as 14 at one point, Eli threw the rock 51 times for 520 yards eclipsing the previous record held by Phil Simms who set it in 1985 with 513 passing yards. The only other Giants QB to pass for 500 or more yards in a game was Y.A. Tittle; 505 yards in 1962.

Donte Rosario-TE-Chargers- How many of you had him on your roster? QB Philip Rivers has his number in the red zone several times on Sunday as Rosario had four receptions for 48 yards and three touchdowns. Here’s a guy that hadn’t scored a touchdown since he was with the Panthers in 2009! In fact he had never scored more than two TD’s in one season in his five-year career! Antonio Gates (sore ribs) is expected back this week so don’t go & grab Rosario up off of waivers just yet. Read more…
