Fantasy football start/sit advice, projections: 49ers vs. Panthers

New, comments

We’ve got Yahoo! fantasy football projections for Week 2.

The San Francisco 49ers and Carolina Panthers square off at 10 a.m. PT, so you’ll get a quick idea of where you stand if you have players from either team on your fantasy football teams. If you are looking for some last minute fantasy advice, I thought I’d take a look at pertinent options on the two teams, and see how they are projected to perform Sunday morning.

These point projections are courtesy of Yahoo!, and are based on standard leagues. I’ve ranked them in order of point total, and then included a rundown of the notable stats. I added kickers because I like seeing what the projected extra points suggest. They project three touchdowns and 1.9 field goals for the Panthers, and 1.7 touchdowns and field goals for the 49ers. That would net out to a final score of Panthers 26.7, 49ers 17, which would be a 49ers cover!
