As usual week 1 of the 2023-2024 NFL season was filled with surprise performances. We saw many big names with dud performances and several under-the-radar players outperformed their rankings. Week 2 is usually where things start to settle down and we should get a better idea of how the rest of the season will play out. Before you check out our fantasy football week 2 rankings let’s first go over some key injuries to monitor.
Travis Kelce – The Kansas City Chiefs struggled without their star tight end on Thursday night. Is this the week Kelce returns? Kelce is dealing with a hyperextended knee injury but was pushing to play in week 1. Given that he had extra rest it’s probable we see Kelce back this weekend. Once we have more clarity we will update our rankings accordingly.
Austin Ekeler – Ekeler suffered an apparent ankle injury on Sunday and as of right now we don’t know the severity. We will have to monitor this situation closely and see how he practices this week.
Anthony Richardson – Richardson had a productive debut for the Colts on Sunday but picked up a knee injury towards the end of the game. As of now, it appears the injury is minor and he won’t miss any time. This is something to keep an eye on with Richardson. He will need to protect himself better and avoid the big hits.
