Fantasy Football Players Of Week 2

by: DanD On  Tuesday, September 16, 2008

It was a crazy week in the NFL especially in the fantasy football world.  There were some crazy outcomes that some would have never expected.

Here are the top fantasy football players of week 2, who put up the biggest numbers during the second Sunday of the NFL season.

Jay CutlerBest Offensive Player- Jay Cutler, QB, Denver Broncos,

Despite almost blowing the game by throwing a late interception and then by fumbling the ball, (yes it was a fumble as referee Ed Hoculi finally admitted) Cutler had a monster game. He threw for 350 yards and 4 touchdowns and he also did his best John Elway impression as he hit Eddie Royal for a two point conversion to win the game.

Honorable mention: Aaron Rodgers, QB, Green Bay Packers.

Darren McFadden Best Offensive Rookie-Darren McFadden, RB, Oakland Raiders,

McFadden gouged the Chiefs for 169 yards on 21 carries and 1 touchdown. The coaches in Oakland should keep giving this guy the ball as much as possible because he is a home run hitter. This year’s crop of young running backs seems to best to come along in quite some time as they have been putting up big numbers thus far.

Honorable mention: Chris Johnson, RB, Tennessee Titans.

Justin TuckBest Defensive Player- Justin Tuck, DE, New York Giants,

When Osi Unmenyiora went down for the season many people assumed the Giants Defense would be missing the mighty pass rush they had last season. Enter Justin Tuck, this guy is a monster who eats quarterbacks for dinner. In week two he had two sacks and also a 41 yard interception return for a touchdown. He is making an early case for defensive player of the year.

Honorable mention: Charles Woodson, DB, Green Bay Packers.

Chris HortonBest Defensive Rookie- Chris Horton, DB, Washington Redskins,

Another slow week by many high profile rookies, with the exception of Chris Long who got his first sack, means guys like Chris Horton from UCLA are stealing the spotlight. Helping the Redskins to their first win of the season Horton had 2 interceptions and 2 tackles against Drew Brees and New Orleans’ highly touted offense. Not bad for a guy who was almost the last player selected in this years draft.

Honorable mention: Lawrence Jackson, DE, Seattle Seahawks.
