Z’s Week 2 Picks

Before moving on to week 2, let’s take a look at how I did week 1. In the 13 games I predicted last week I went 6-7, not too bad for the first week of the year. Check out last week’s article with my picks here.

Best Take: “Carson Palmer is done, book it”. That take was right on the money, as Carson threw 3 picks.

Worst take: Tie “Sammie Coates, He’s catching a bomb against his old team”. “Savage slings it”. This couldn’t of been more wrong, as Savage was benched and Coates didn’t catch a ball.

Let’s move on to this week:

Browns @ Ravens

Pick: Browns +7.5. Browns keep this one close, usually play a tight game within the AFC North.

Sleeper: Buck Allen. Look for him to slip into Woodhead’s role.

Bills @ Panthers

Pick: Bills +7.5. This is a tough one to predict after both teams had easy week 1 wins. I think the Panthers win but the Bills don’t make it easy on them.

Sleeper: Mike Tolbert. The Toldzer grabs a goal line score.

Cardinals @ Colts

Pick: Cardinals -7.5. Both of these teams aren’t looking great, but the Colts looked embarrassing in week 1, Cards should take it easily.

Sleeper: Carson Palmer. He has a get right game vs the Colts.

Titans @ Jaguars

Pick: Titans -1.5. Jags D won’t have it easy as they did in week 1.

Sleeper: Corey Davis. Look for him to emerge as the Titans top weapon.

Eagles @ Chiefs

Pick: Chiefs -4.5. Andy Reid keeps his offense rolling in a revenge game against his old team.

Sleeper: Zach Ertz. Look for him to have some more room to run without Eric Berry.

Patriots @ Saints

Pick: Patriots -6.5. Do you think Bill and Tom are going 0-2?

Sleeper: Brandin Cooks. Not a sleeper, but make sure you get him your lineups. He returns to the Superdome where he did plenty of damage the last 3 seasons.

Viking @ Steelers

Pick: Steelers -6.5. Big Ben is dynamite at home.

Sleeper: Martavis Bryant. Look for Ben to pepper him with targets as AB has his hands full with Xavier Rhodes.

Bears @ Buccaneers

Pick: Bears +7. Bears showed they’re not as bad as we thought last week.

Sleeper: DeSean Jackson. Look for a deep ball in his first game in Tampa.

Dolphins @ Chargers

Pick: Dolphins +4.5. Another week of practice will do Cutler well.

Sleeper: Hunter Henry. Linebacker is not the Dolphins strength.

Jets @ Raiders

Pick: Raiders -14. Raiders rout the Jets.

Sleeper: Jared Cook. Charles Clay was able to score, so can Cook.

Cowboys @ Broncos

Pick: Cowboys -2.5. Zeke can run all over this defense.

Sleeper: Jamaal Charles. He redeems himself after last weeks fumble.

Redskins @ Rams

Pick: Redskins +2.5. The Skins present a tougher task than the Colts.

Sleeper: Cooper Kupp. Look for Watkins to get locked up by Norman.

49ers @ Seahawks

Pick: Seahawks -13.5. The 12th man will be out in full force.

Sleeper: Thomas Rawls. Look for him to lead the team in carries.

Packers @ Falcons

Pick: Packers -2.5. Packers ruin the opening of the Falcons new stadium.

Sleeper: Tevin Coleman. Look for him to catch a lot of balls out of the backfield in a high scoring game.

Lions @ Giants

Pick: Giants -4. Beckham returning will help open things up.

Sleeper: Brandon Marshall. The return of Odell will help Marshall on the outside.
