Sit ’Em

Michael Vick (Philadelphia): In throwing a career-high 58 times last Sunday, Vick foisted up four picks against the woeful Browns and barely managed to sneak away with the win. Up against the revered Ravens D, not only will Vick’s highly touted mobility be limited (diminishing his Fantasy upside) but Andy Reid will likely want to limit Vick’s potential for errors by limiting his throws.

Chris Johnson (Tennessee): Johnson’s dismal performance in week one (11 carries for four yards, six catches for 47) isn’t necessarily a sign of things to come, but week two might not be any better against a San Diego team that held Darren McFadden and the Raiders to 45 rushing yards. That said, proceed with caution here; Johnson probably went top 10 in your draft for a reason.

Kevin Smith (Detroit): Smith surprised a lot of people out of the gate with four catches for 29 yards and a touchdown on top of 13 carries for 62 yards and another score, but his value is limited against a San Francisco team that proved last week they can stop the run while almost daring a good QB to throw the ball.

Kenny Britt (Tennessee): Coming off suspension (a phrase that often precedes Britt’s name), the Titans wideout not only has to shake off the rust but get a bum knee up to speed. Chargers corners will probably pay him his due, but that might be the problem. If you’ve got options you might want to use them and sit on Britt to see what he’s capable of.

Laurent Robinson (Jacksonville): Robinson’s coming off a 10-TD season in Dallas and five catches for 66 yards last week. But now the real test begins. He’s no longer an under-the-radar threat and doesn’t have someone as seasoned as Tony Romo throwing to him. Until Justin Blackmon gets up to speed, Robinson is public enemy number one in Jacksonville and defenses will treat him as such. Whether he can outplay them is yet to be seen, but don’t count on it against the Texans.

Brent Celek (Philadelphia): Celek caught four passes on eight targets last week for 65 yards, which would be fine if Vick hadn’t thrown 58, making that ratio look paltry. Adding insult to injury is his competition, TE Clay Harbor, who had six targets and a game-winning TD catch in the dying minutes. Whether the Eagles decide to spread their receivers or tone the passing game down, Celek’s upside is limited, especially against the Ravens.

Seattle Seahawks: One of Seattle’s strengths heading into the season was supposed to be their defense, which fared beyond poorly against an Arizona team with no run game and minimal talent through the air. This week they get both with DeMarco Murray, Tony Romo and the Dallas receiving corps coming to town.
