Week 2 Main Slate
This week's main slate is a 15-gamer with an eclectic mix of matchups and teams. The Houston-Arizona showdown has the highest over-under at 71, which means picking the right targets in that game will be crucial.

In all, this is a juicy slate with a lot of value to be had in each tier of each position. My picks this week are a mix of value guys and building blocks to consider when constructing your lineups.

He can also run a bit and, contextually, this game figures to
