    Main Storylines to Watch

    How do the Vikings respond after their Week 1 upset loss? The Vikings went into Week 1 as favorites but lost the turnover battle three to zero leading to the loss. The Vikings go into Week 2 with a banged-up offensive line against one of the best defensive lines in the league. In order to pull off this upset, the Vikings have to take care of the ball and be more efficient in the ground game compared to Week 1.

    Will the Eagles’ so-called explosive offense show their might in their home opener? The Eagles opened their Week 1 matchup against the Patriots with a 16-0 lead and cruised the whole second half to hold on to win 25-20. The Eagles defense scored once and the Hurts had a passing touchdown to DeVonta Smith after the defense gave them a short field. One offensive touchdown is not what fantasy owners expected from this explosive squad.
