Well, so far this season we’re better at predicting whose not worth you’re time then we are at picking who to start, so with that in mind we head to week two of Sit ’em Down:

QB- Colin Kaepernick, San Francisco at Pittsburgh (Fanduel Price- $7800/Draftkings- $6600)

If Monday night is any indication, then the 49ers figure to be a heavy running team, meaning there won’t be too many points to go around for Kaepernick. Plus, the Steelers figure to be well rested and looking to hurt someone after getting torched by Tom Brady in week one. Especially on Fanduel, that price is way too high for someone who has yet to throw a touchdown pass this year. Move on.

QB- Jay Cutler, Chicago vs. Arizona (FD- $7200/DK- 6000)

I’m not crazy about Cutler this year anyway, but considering he didn’t even have 250 yards last week, and the fact that Drew Brees only had one score against the Cards in week one, Cutler’s odds of topping his first week outlook don’t appear too good. Go with our start choices in Nick Foles or Sam Bradford instead.

RB- CJ Anderson, Denver at Kansas City (FD- $8000/DK- $6700)

It’s risky starting players who go on Thursday, especially if they left their Sunday game early with a toe injury. How Fanduel justifies keeping him at $8000 is beyond me. Don’t start him on either site, and if you have a better option in yearly leagues, use it.

RB- Lamar Miller, Miami at Jacksonville (FD- $7300/DK- $5500)

So Miller barely tops 70 all-purpose yards on Sunday and he clocks in at $7300 on Fanduel, yet Carlos Hyde scores twice and goes over 160 yards on Monday and he’s 300 bucks cheaper. Ameer Abdullah’s only $6400? C’mon now. Miller is rarely a threat to top 100 yards anyway, so don’t take the chance if you are putting money on it. Go for the cheaper options.

WR- Demaryius Thomas, Denver at Kansas City (FD- $8500/DK- 8400)

Another Thursday night play priced way too high on both sites. Peyton Manning’s offense was totally out of sync on Sunday, and while the Chiefs did allow a big day to DeAndre Hopkins (who had worse quarterbacks throwing to him), the fact is if Manning does wind up getting the offense on track, it’s likely to start with Emmanuel Sanders or Owen Daniels getting scores first before Peyton gets on the D-Train. Avoid this week, but don’t expect Thomas to be on this list long.

WR- Devonte Adams, Green Bay vs. Seattle (FD- $6400/DK- $4900)

So much for all that Adams hype after Jordy Nelson went down. He still isn’t clicking with Aaron Rodgers yet, and with James Jones back in town, Adams is likely back to being the third receiving option for this game, and the season. He’s not badly overpriced, but for this week, you can definitely do better. Avoid until he shows a better rapport with Rodgers.

WR- Amari Cooper, Oakland vs. Baltimore (FD- $6700/DK- $6400)

Right now Cooper’s lone “highlight” consists of Pacman Jones slamming his head into his own helmet after the punk knocked it off his head. And with David Carr likely sidelined and Matt McGloin under center, the odds of Cooper looking like the guy the Raiders thought they were getting with the fourth pick in the draft don’t look good. Especially with the Ravens coming to town after silencing Peyton Manning last week. Move on.
