Welcome to Week 2 of the 2012 NFL Regular Season

(rough Wk 1 & TNF Game; currently 25-16 = 61.0%)

Donald Jones, Buffalo Bills WR is my DEEP SLEEPER OF THE WEEK (currently 1-0 = 100%; Kevin Ogletree Week 1). I expect Jones to have 7+ receptions 75+ yards 1+ TD's. WHY? Jones is now the undisputed #2 WR with the injury to David Nelson. Jones got 7 targets and 5 catches with Nelson playing last week against much better CB's than he'll see this week. Ryan Fitzpatrick had a terrible game, as all should have expected, but should bounce back this week. C.J. Spiller should not rush for 169 yards again, granted I expect a decent game from Spiller but not one like last week. Stevie Johnson will receive most of the coverage and Scott Chandler will help fill the middle of the field leaving things wide open for Jones to succeed in this one.

Arian Foster, Houston Texans RB: 110+ yards 2+ TD's.
A.J. Green, Cincinnati Bengals WR: 100+ yards 2+ TD's
Vincent Jackson, Tampa Bay Buccaneers WR: 100+ yards 1+ TD's.
Andrew Luck, Indianapolis Colts QB: 300+ yards 2+ TD's.
Eli Manning, New York Giants QB: 300+ yards 2+ TD's.
Tom Brady, New England Patriots QB: 300+ yards 2+ TD's.
Drew Brees, New Orleans Saints QB: 300+ yards 2+ TD's.
Trent Richardson, Cleveland Browns RB: 80+ yards 1+ TD's.
Dwayne Bowe, Kansas City Chiefs WR: 75+ yards 1+ TD's.
Malcom Floyd, San Diego Chargers WR: 70+ yards 1+ TD's
Doug Martin, Tampa Bay Buccaneers RB: 70+ yards 1+ TD's
Antonio Brown, Pittsburgh Steelers WR: 70+ yards 1+ TD's
DeMarco Murray, Dallas Cowboys RB: 100+ yards

GAME PICKS: (rough Wk 1, currently 6-5 = 54.5%)

New Orleans Saints at Carolina Panthers: Saints -2.
Houston Texans at Jacksonville Jaguars: Texans -7.
Arizona Cardinals at New England Patriots: Patriots -13.5.
Tampa Bay Buccaneers at New York Giants: Giants win straight up.
Dallas Cowboys at Seattle Seahawks: Cowboys -3.

Chicago Bears (1-0) at Green Bay Packers (0-1): Huge Thursday Night Football Game here with serious Playoff implications. After Aaron Rodgers and company lost Week 1 in Green Bay to the San Francisco 49ers, look for them to bounce back in a big way in this one. But, Jay Cutler, Matt Forte, Brandon Marshall, Brian Urlacher, and the rest of the Bears will not go down without a fight. FANTASY IMPACT: Aaron Rodgers 290+ passing yards 3+ TD's, Jordy Nelson 90+ receiving yards 1+ TD's, Cedric Benson 80+ rushing yards 1+ TD's, and Jay Cutler 300+ passing yards 1+ TD's. PICK: I pick the Green Bay Packers -5 and think the final score will end up being 34-24 Packers.
