[vc_row][vc_column][vc_column_text]With a tough Week 1 in the books which saw some surprise players break out and some highly named guys not even see the field, we will turn our attention to Week 2 in hopes of starting our run to the playoffs.

For college fantasy football owners, Week 1 is typically frustrating with several big names playing small schools and not finishing out 4 quarters of football or some players (Josh Kelley) not seeing the field at all and crushing your line-up. With the hopes of righting the ship after what was possibly a rough weekend, we should all have a better idea of how things will play out this week with playing time being distributed to the players.

McDonald continued his hot streak by throwing for 378 yards and 4 tds. The only concern was the 4 ints which came against Arizona. Joining McDonald as a star was Cedric Byrd who collected 224 yards on 14 receptions for 4 tds. Byrd proved to be able to fill the shoes of departed Ursua and looks to continue his hot streak in a game that is projected to be a shoot-out.

Oregon St started off the season in a shootout as well and proved to have some fire power of their own on the offensive side of the ball. Jake Luton started off the year throwing for 251 yards and 3 tds and should have no problem moving the ball through the air against a notorious bad defense that Hawaii will field on Saturday night. Isaiah Hodgins was the top target on the outside posting 9 catches for 170 yards and 2 tds. Jermar Jefferson looks to get his season going in the right direction this week after failing to reach the endzone last week against Oklahoma St.

Needless to say, with this game not starting til midnight Saturday, their will either be a lot of fantasy owners staying up to watch the shootout or will be grabbing their phone as soon as they wake up to check scores. The over/under in this game is at 78.5 points so the fantasy points should be filing up the stat sheet.

Other notable players to watch for in this game are Tyjon Lindsey (Oregon St), Artavis Pierce (Oregon St). JoJo Ward (Hawaii), Jason-Matthew Sharsh (Hawaii), and Dayton Furuta (Hawaii).[/vc_column_text][/vc_column][vc_column width=”1/2″][vc_single_image image=”4980″ img_size=”full”][/vc_column][/vc_row][vc_row][vc_column][vc_custom_heading text=”North Texas at SMU” font_container=”tag:h2|font_size:24px|text_align:center” google_fonts=”font_family:Roboto%20Condensed%3A300%2C300italic%2Cregular%2Citalic%2C700%2C700italic|font_style:400%20regular%3A400%3Anormal”][/vc_column][/vc_row][vc_row][vc_column width=”1/2″][vc_single_image image=”3936″ img_size=”full”][/vc_column][vc_column width=”1/2″][vc_column_text]The offense looked every bit as lethal as last season with Beuchele under center for SMU  who threw for 360 yards on 49 attempts. The only negative to the performance was the fact that he did not have a passing td. Look for the attempts to stay high again this week in a game that should be a shootout. Proche continued his streak of being highly targeted in the passing game and while he came in second in yards to Roberson. With teams keying on slowing down Proche this season Roberson stands the chance to have several big games this season. Xavier Jones seemed to have the nose for the endzone this past week collecting all 3 of the rushing tds.

Mason Fine started his Sr season by throwing for 383 yds and 4 tds. With one of the best wide outs in Conference USA in Rico Bussey, the passing game should stay firing on all cylinders this season. The surprise of the passing game had to be Jason Pirtle in the TE position who had 4 catches for 88 yds and 3 tds. It will be interesting if Pirtle can continue the td streak this week against SMU. The Rb situation for North Texas remains a 2 horse race with Torrey and Easly. Both will probably continue to split reps down the middle with Torey possibly seeing a few more each game.

What is considered to be another shootout this weekend with high fantasy stakes on the line for both teams will be very intriguing to watch. While neither team is known for excellence defense, both are known for uptempo, high scoring offenses that can put on a show. With the over/under set at 73 Vegas also believes this game to be a shootout and the spread is currently at 3.5 points. Good week to load up on these two teams fantasy players for a shootout game.

Other notable players to watch for this week are Jaelon Darden (North Texas), Nic Smith (North Texas), Ke’Mon Freeman (SMU), and Kylen Granson (SMU)[/vc_column_text][/vc_column][/vc_row][vc_row][vc_column][vc_custom_heading text=”Nebraska at Colorado” font_container=”tag:h2|font_size:24px|text_align:center” google_fonts=”font_family:Roboto%20Condensed%3A300%2C300italic%2Cregular%2Citalic%2C700%2C700italic|font_style:400%20regular%3A400%3Anormal”][/vc_column][/vc_row][vc_row][vc_column width=”1/2″][vc_column_text css_animation=”top-to-bottom”]So, everyone could have not been more letdown this past week with the performance of Adrian Martinez. What was supposed to be the start of a season to remember turned into a mess throwing for 178 yards and 1 int and adding 6 yds rushing on 13 attempts against South Alabama. All signs are pointing to a bounce back game this week but I am taking a wait and see approach. Dedrick Mills did score 2 tds in the game but was not exactly racking up the yards per carry with a 2.9 average. With Maurice Washington returning until his legal trouble is taken care of, he could provide a spark that this offense definitely needs. The passing game never got going to see how the productivity would be split but JD Spielman is still the #1 option and it will be interesting to see if he can get on track with better Qb play.

Colorado was still impressive to start the season and Montez got off to a decent start throwing for 232 yds and 2 tds. While not as impressive as others on the fantasy list this season, his #1 option was double covered all game and was being held at times forcing the Buffs to lean on the running game. Alex Fontenot had no issues carrying the load rushing for 125 yds and 3 tds while averaging 6.6 yards per carry. Teams going forward are going to have to decide how to stop this offense if the production continues from the ground and threw the air. Speaking of the Wr that was held and tugged on all night, Laviska Shenault. Shenault still managed to find the endzone while facing a safety over top all night. Shenault will continue to be a fantasy friendly Wr each and every week.

This game has some meaning behind it this week for different reasons. Last season, Colorado edged out the Huskers by 5 points so redemption is on the mind of the Huskers this season. Nebraska also needs to prove to the college football world that they have taken the correct steps in Frosts 2nd season to be a contender in the Big 12. Colorado needs to get that signature win on their resume early to prove that they are a legitimate contender in a wide open Pac 12 this year. Lets also not forget the play last season which injured Martinez. Most thought it was a dirty play and watching the clip would lead others to believe the same thing. I am sure Martinez has had this game circled and wants to prove a point this weekend.

Others notable players to watch for this weekend are Tony Brown (Colorado), KD Nixon (Colorado), Wandale Robinson (Nebraska), and Jack Stoll (Nebraska)[/vc_column_text][/vc_column][vc_column width=”1/2″][vc_single_image image=”7981″ img_size=”full”][vc_video link=”https://www.youtube.com/watch?22=&v=_S6jbcyp5LA”][/vc_column][/vc_row]
