It’s early, but the theme to the start of the 2017 season has to be the amount of disappointing performances from early fantasy picks. Let’s take a look at which ones are worth truly being concerned over and those who aren’t while also recapping the rest of the action in Week 2. Vikings vs. Steelers: Le’Veon Bell went either No. 1 or No. 2 in nearly every draft and quickly became the most desirable fantasy commodity when David Johnson went down in Week 1.
Start Chris Hogan, who’s up against a New Orleans secondary that was gashed for 7.9 YPA last season (and 10.8 to Sam Bradford in Week 1) and should see more action in a game with an over/under of 56 points with Danny Amendola likely to be out. Hogan is a top-25 wide receiver on my board this week. Start Ted Ginn in what projects to surely be a shootout, and the Pats’ defense was unimpressive last week. With Willie Snead still suspended, look for Ginn to haul in at least one bomb Sunday.
The Seahawks/Packers game projected as a shootout, with the over/under at 50, so naturally the score was 3-0 at halftime (and that required a field goal as time expired in the second quarter). Seattle was ultimately held out of the end zone, with Russell Wilson getting 5.9 YPA against a Green Bay defense that allowed an NFL-high 8.1 last season.
Muck Rack makes it simple to find people, tweets, or articles that mention any name, keyword, company, hashtag etc. We've compiled this guide to help you make the most of your search.
Selecting a term
Start searching tweets, articles from media outlets, articles mentioned in tweets, journalists'
names, titles and bios with some suggested searches:
Companies or Topics (e.g. iPhone, Microsoft)
Phrases (e.g. "cloud computing") — use quotes to keep the terms together
Twitter handles (e.g. @username) — returns those who have mentioned or replied to
Names (e.g. "David Pogue")
Hashtags (e.g. #sxsw, #london2012)
Bio details (e.g. vegan, Olympics, father)
Muck Rack's Advanced Search allows for many boolean operators.
Find results that mention multiple specified terms, use AND or
+. For example, ensure each result contains both Elon Musk and Mark Zuckerberg by
searching Obama AND Romney or Obama + Romney.
Use the operators OR or , to broaden your search when you'd like either of
multiple terms to appear in results. (This is the default behavior of our search when no operators
are used.) For example, search for democrat OR republican to find results that refer to
Democrats and/or Republicans.
Use NOT or - to subtract results from your search. For
example, searching Disney will yield results about the Walt Disney Company as well as Walt Disney
World Resort. To exclude mentions of Disney World, search for Disney -World or Disney
When using one of these operators with a phrase, enclose it in quotation marks. For example, you can
find results about smartphones excluding Apple's iPhone 4S by searching smartphone -"iPhone
Exact case matching or punctuation
If you're searching for a brand name or keyword that relies on specific punctuation marks or capitalization, you can
find results that match your exact query by adding matchcase: before the keyword you're searching for, like matchcase:E*TRADE .
Use parentheses to separate multiple
boolean phrases. For example, to find journalists talking about having fun in Disney World or
Disneyland, search for ("disney world" OR disneyland) AND fun.
An asterisk can be used to search for any variation of a root word truncated by the asterisk. For example, searching for admin* will return results for administrator, administration, administer, administered, etc.
A near operator is an AND operator where you can control the distance between the words. You can vary the distance the near operation uses by adding a forward slash and number (between 0-99) such as strawberries NEAR/10 "whipped cream", which means the strawberries must exist within 10 words of "whipped cream".
