So now you know. Now you know what you thought you knew all preseason. Your knowledge will help you get a win in Week 2, but our Week 2 QB Rankings will be 50-percent offseason knowledge and 50-percent Week 1 knowledge.
You knew Carson Palmer was going to have a lot of weapons.
You knew Andrew Luck was going to come up big with Dwayne Allen and Reggie Wayne healthy.
You knew Aaron Rodgers was going to have a very tough time going against the Seahawks defense.
You knew the Falcons/Saints games was going to be a shootout.
But what things didn’t we know?
We didn’t know if Ken Whisenhunt was going to make Jake Locker Fantasy viable.
We didn’t know Eli Manning was playing a Seahawks defense in Lions uniforms – or that this Giants offense is in serious trouble.
Let’s dig into the Week 2 QB Rankings!
Dalton should play well against a pretty bad Falcons pass defense.
The Vikings defense played much better under Mike Zimmer, or was it that the Rams offense just has no identity?
Locker draws a great matchup as the Cowboys come to town.
