The Denver Broncos have a few good options for Week 2 of fantasy football as they travel to play the Atlanta Falcons. The no-brainer play is quarterback Peyton Manning - if he is owned on your team, he should be starting. He is ranked as the No. 8 quarterback play this week, so unless you have one of the other seven, Manning should be your guy this week.
The Falcons' pass defense is middle of the pack after just one week, but they did record two interceptions so that could be a mild concern for Manning owners.
Wide receiver Demaryius Thomas is also definitely worth starting if he is on your team, as he is ranked as the No. 6 wideout in standard leagues, and No. 7 in PPR leagues. Thomas had five catches for 110 yards and a touchdown, plus he was targeted seven times which was tied with Eric Decker for the most last Sunday. Speaking of Decker, he is worth a No. 2 receiver spot, as he is projected at No. 13 in standard leagues and 11th in PPR scoring systems.
One player to proceed with caution with is running back Willis McGahee. He is ranked 27th and 28th in standard and PPR leagues, so unless one plays in a deep league, he may be a questionable play this week.
