NFL 2019 season Week 1 is over and it had given us a rough estimate of things to come in the future games. It means time to adjust your fantasy football rankings for the Week 2 games. While some players took their teams to victory, others have been not performing up to their names.
Jacoby Brissett doesn’t have the magic of Andrew Luck as a quarterback and Indianapolis Colts lost to the Los Angeles Chargers. Even the chargers were missing out their star running back Melvin Gordon, but Austin Ekeler stepped up for the game. Here are the fantasy football predictions for the best quarterbacks, running backs, wide receivers and tight ends for the 2019 NFL season.
Philip Rivers did a great job for the Chargers even in the absence of Melvin Gordon. Jimmy Garoppolo from Tampa Bay Buccaneers also showed great skills even though the team lost to the San Francisco 49ers. Matthew Stafford was the top scorer for the Detroit Lions vs Arizona Cardinals which ended in a 27-27 tie. Tom Brady is still rocking in his 40s and with Antonio Brown joining him from the next game, he’ll only get better.
All these numbers and an overtime win for Philip Rivers and the @Chargers! ⚡️ #HaveADay #BoltUp pic.twitter.com/dFHn3Qk7dl

Austin Ekeler is the name everyone should add on to their list who took the Chargers to victory and proved his worth as a running back. Dalvin Cook from Minnesota Vikings rushed for 111 yards with 21 carries defeating the Atlanta Falcons with 28-12. Kerryon Johnson is another name from the Detroit Lions along with Matthew Stafford who had the second-highest yards rushed in their team.
Austin Ekeler, who had 18 total touches for 154 yards and 3 TD today, will make $645,000 all season from the Chargers.
Melvin Gordon will forfeit $329,705 for each game that he sits out this season.

Tyler Lockett was the main reason the Seattle Seahawks were able to beat the Cincinnati Bengals with a close score of 21-20. Josh Gordon is the highlight of New England Patriots and the primary reason why the team dominated Pittsburgh Steelers to a 33-3 victory.
I have no idea why Tyler Lockett isn't getting the ball.

Dede Westbrook showed a lot of fight for the Jacksonville Jaguars despite the team losing to Kansas City Chiefs. Hunter Renfrow did a great job and helped the Oakland Raiders secure a victory against Denver Broncos and will take the place of Antonio Brown in the team.
Mark Andrews from Baltimore Ravens had an amazing performance where they humiliated the Miami Dolphins with 59-10. Daren Waller also got a chance to sign in the absence of Antonio Brown and helped the Raiders open the 2019 NFL season with a fresh victory.
Marquise Brown and Mark Andrews are both over 100 yards.
OU is an offensive talent factory.

The Texans lost to the Saints, but Houston was leading the scoreboard till the last quarter and Jordan Akins deserves a much better spot in your fantasy football rankings.
