Last week, I previewed five fantasy sleepers who would have a good game in week 1. All of those predictions came true with the exception of Jared Cook, who was a colossal disappointment against the Jaguars in week 1. And now I have another slate of sleepers who are poised to do well in week 2. This time, the list will definitely not include Jared Cook.

1. Michael Crabtree.

The Saints defense is bad, but the Falcons defense isn't much better.

The Falcons allowed Jameis Winston to throw for four touchdown passes in week one and will now have to face a red hot Raiders offense. Crabtree scored ten fantasy points without a touchdown in week 1 and is the clear second option on a Raiders offense that loves to pass the ball.

2. Trevor Siemian.

Starting Siemian in any week 2 fantasy leagues will be risky, but it might be worth it if Siemian can come close to replicating the performance of Matthew Stafford.

The Colts allowed 39 points in week 1 and currently lack any semblance of a defense. Trevor had to deal with a really tough Broncos defense in his last game, but will have a far easier time against a matador Colts defense in week 2.

3. Kyle Rudolph.

There weren't many people who expected the Vikings tight end to have the kind of success he did in his first game, scoring a touchdown and accumulating ten fantasy points in the process.

He was targeted a decent amount by Shaun Hill and will should again have some solid opportunities against a Jaguars defense that allowed Julius Thomas to score 12 fantasy points.

4. Wil Lutz.

It seems a bit strange to list a kicker on one of these lists, but they are important fantasy players too! Lutz scored nine fantasy points in week 1 even after he missed two field goals, one of which would have been a game winner. Fantasy owners can start Lutz with confidence in week 2 against a Giants defense that just gave up a ton of fantasy points to Dan Bailey.

5. Tajae Sharpe.

The Titans will get to play against a suspect Detroit Lions defense that allowed 35 points to Andrew Luck and the Colts. That's good news for Sharpe, who managed to catch seven passes for 76 yards against a tough Vikings defense. He shouldn'thave as much trouble in week 2 thanks to the matchup and can be started in most fantasy leagues with confidence this week.
