Week two is in our sights, and that means, time to start thinking about our Fantasy Football lineups for the week. Whether you are coming off of a big win to start 1-0, or need a quick bounce back from an opening loss, it’s time to think about who to start this week.

The Jets have a tough task going up against the Pittsburgh Steelers, as their defense is always tough. I do believe that there still are players that can help your lineup on Sunday, and I will take you through them now.

STEPHEN HILL

Yes, I am suggesting the rookie, against the Pittsburgh Steelers. Before you say no, let me give you my reasoning.

Peyton Manning carved this defense up last week, going 19-26, for 253 yards and 2 TDs. No, this is not a statement that Mark Sanchez is going to play up to Peyton Manning’s level. The point is, that at least in week one, there are holes in the Pittsburgh pass defense.

Demaryius Thomas had the most success on the outside, with 5 catches for 110 yards and 1 TD. At 6’3″, he was the tallest guy out on the field. Stephen Hill, standing at 6’4″, will have the same distinction on Sunday afternoon. Besides being tall, we know that he can fly. He showed us all last week that his case of the dropsies is not serious, with 5 catches for 89 yards and 2 TDs. He is not likely to repeat that total, but another 60 yards and a TD is not out of the question. You could do worse than playing Hill on Sunday.
