Welcome to the second edition of King’s Korner – where I give you all the information and insight you need to succeed in your fantasy football league.

Here’s my list of three “kings” I’m crowning in Week 2:

Minnesota QB Teddy Bridgewater (MIN) – Yeah, I know what you’re saying – Teddy was terrible on Monday night. If you actually look at the numbers (23-of-32, 231 yards and an interception), it’s not so bad. If Teddy h2o can complete passes at that kind of clip against a Lions D that gave up 440 yards and two touchdowns to Philip Rivers, look out. Bridgewater could be in for a 300-yard, 2 TD day.

RB Justin Forsett (BAL) – The Ravens face the Raiders Sunday, who last week gave up 63 rushing yards and 2 TD’s to Jeremy Hill – and he only played a half of football. Forsett was solid in Week 1 against a stout Denver D, and I think he could do it again. Sign me up for 140 all-purpose yards and a score.

WR James Jones (GB) – Aaron has his old friend James back. With Jones suiting up in the green and gold once again, No. 12 found No. 89 for a pair of touchdowns against the lowly Bears last Sunday. Now while the Legion of Boom may scare you, keep in mind that Seattle’s lost a lot of guys from that secondary: Brandon Browner, Byron Maxwell, Walter Thurmond and (for now) Kam Chancellor. If Aaron Rodgers can trust James Jones, you should too.

Finally, here’s my own “jester” – a guy to avoid - for Week 2:

WR Brandon Marshall (NYJ) – I loved what Marshall did in Week 1 vs. the Browns -- 6 catches, 62 yards and a TD -- but Week 2 provides a different challenge. Colts DB Vontae Davis held the Bills’ Sammy Watkins catchless last week – and I think he could have a similar effect this week…while he may not be shutout, I’d be worried if I started Mr. Marshall in my lineup.
