Fantasy football 2011 | Week 2 wide receiver projections

Last week I predicted Brandon Lloyd would lead all fantasy wide receivers. If he had stayed healthy I feel pretty confident he would have finished inside the top 7.

Considering where forecasters on other sites had him (top 30) that makes me feel pretty good about these projections in the long term. In Week 2, we’ve got some names we all know at the top with a few surprises in the top 10, including both Cowboys receivers.

Let’s go back to Lloyd for one second. He is very questionable at this point and missed practice again on Thursday. If he doesn’t go, Eric Decker and Eddie Royal get upgrades, but this is a better matchup for Denver’s tight ends anyway.

Reminder: Projections for touchdowns, interceptions and a couple other stats could be considered probability numbers as much as “projections.” When I say Mike Vick is going to throw for 1.5 TDs and 0.9 interceptions, it means he’s got a 50-50 shot of throwing two TDs and a 90 percent chance of throwing a pick. For fantasy points purposes, I multiplied the numbers by their respective fantasy points (4 points for passing touchdowns, -2 for turnovers, etc.) to help us split hairs.
