Week 2 of Thursday Night Football pits the Cleveland Browns against the Cincinnati Bengals. Who should you start and who should you sit in fantasy football?

After 1 week of NFL action in the books, the AFC North went 2-2 with the two wins coming from the Ravens and Steelers and the losses being handed to the Bengals and Browns. The two losing teams from the division square off in week 2 with the hope of not falling to 0-2, which is pretty difficult to overcome for teams wanting to make the playoffs.

Fantasy football owners who had either of the Browns running backs and started them in week 1 were probably pretty ecstatic with the results they saw. It’s doubtful that many Bengals aside from A.J. Green were thrown into the starting lineup and that makes perfect sense, as they are a young team led by a rookie quarterback.

This is a huge game for both of these teams. They already play in a division with one of the best teams in the league, but now that the Steelers have Big Ben back, it’ll be tough to really make noise in the AFC North. A loss here would put the team in a huge hole, so both are going to be giving it their all to avoid that ugly 0-2 start.

With all of that in mind, who should fantasy owners look to start and who should they look to sit for the second week of NFL action? Let’s take a look.
