After a thrilling Week 1, there is a lot to take in. While your lineup is ultimately dependent on your team, here are three players to consider starting and three players worth sitting in Week 2.

-- Maurice Jones-Drew (RB, Jaguars) Don’t overreact to his Week 1 performance; expect MJD to run all over the Raiders.
-- Robert Griffin III (QB, Redskins) The Packers game could turn into a shootout, and Green Bay struggled to defend a similar dual-QB threat last week.
-- Julius Thomas (TE, Broncos) If the Ravens couldn’t keep up with Thomas in Week 1, just imagine how bad he will make the no-name LB core for the Giants look.

-- Torrey Smith (WR, Ravens) Expect the Browns to throw all they’ve got at him.
-- Tony Romo (QB, Cowboys) He is facing an improved Chiefs D line.
-- Isaac Redman (RB, Steelers) Steelers’ rushing game should go from bad to worse with Maurkice Pouncey out.
