Week 2 fantasy football is all about having the best starting lineup and finding those hidden gems worth playing. That isn’t the case this week for wide receiver ArDarius Stewart of the New York Jets.

When it comes to fantasy football, it’s all about starting the best possible team and maximizing on ideal matchups. If you have players going up against the Indianapolis Colts or New York Jets this week, chances are you’re going to score a plethora of fantasy points. The Jets hit the road in Week 2 to face the red-hot Oakland Raiders and well, it’s not going to be a pleasant Sunday. This is why wide receiver ArDarius Stewart isn’t worth starting at all in your final lineups.

The truth of the matter is Stewart is on an abysmal offense that failed to keep those chains moving last week when they lost to the Buffalo Bills. They also didn’t score a single touchdown through the air which again, proves that this offense has a very long way to go before being efficient.

It doesn’t help their progress at all that they’ll be facing one of the top pass defenses in the NFL against the Raiders. They’re fast, consistent, and will give the Jets offense plenty of headaches as the game is being played.

For fantasy football owners hoping that maybe quarterback Josh McCown can have a blockbuster week and throw for many touchdowns to Stewart, it’s simply not going to happen. If anything, the Raiders will beat the Jets so bad, it’s going to be remembered for weeks to come.

It’s best to sit Stewart this week since he’s not worth wasting a slot on. If you need more proof, last week, he only totaled two receptions for just 10 yards.

If you’re one of the very few that actually own Stewart on your fantasy football team, he’s probably not even worth stashing since he won’t be doing much over the next few weeks. The Jets don’t have an identity on offense as it’s all still a work in progress.

Until then, sit him and find any other viable option to start. Even if it means taking a risk with a waiver wire wide receiver that has a decent matchup that can at least give you more than the measly few points, if any, Stewart will earn in Week 2.
