Week 1 fantasy football studs, duds and sleepers: Is Elijah Mitchell really going to be the 49ers’ RB1?

By Charles Curtis

Week 2 of the 2021 NFL season is about to kick off on Thursday with a matchup between the New York Giants and Washington Football Team.

As always, we’re here to help with your weekly decisions with our fantasy lineup advice. Each week, we give you the studs (players with plus matchups due to the defense they’re facing or their team situation), duds (players with tougher matchups or who are in muddled roster situations at the moment) and sleepers (a player you might consider starting who could be in for a big week).

Here are the names we’ve got for Week 2, and as we always say, good luck!!
