Insider Trading: Fantasy tips on each game

ESPN has planted spies in every NFL locker room -- OK, so they're our 32 NFL Nation team reporters -- in order to provide fantasy owners with inside intel to help you win your league. We call it Insider Trading, a collection of fantasy lineup advice pulled straight from the locker rooms and practice fields of every team.

Here is our NFL Nation reporters' Week 2 fantasy advice.

Arizona Cardinals: It’s looking less likely that Andre Ellington will play, or have a significant role if he does play. That means Chris Johnson will be the starter Sunday in Chicago. Johnson has slowly regained his legs after missing all offseason workouts and the first few weeks of training camp. He averaged 4.29 yards per carry in the fourth quarter against the Saints after replacing Ellington, getting stronger as the game progressed. That has quarterback Carson Palmer looking forward to watching Johnson get better with each play Sunday, saying, "He is one of those guys that, the longer you feed him and the more opportunities he gets, the better the chances are he rips one off for 30 or 60 yards." -- Josh Weinfuss

Atlanta Falcons: Folks around the Falcons firmly believe in tight end Jacob Tamme as a red zone target. With Julio Jones dealing with a sore hamstring and likely to draw added attention even if he plays banged up, Tamme becomes more of an option against the Giants. Jason Witten of the Cowboys, though a bigger, more physical tight end than Tamme, did have two touchdowns in the red zone against the Giants last week. In fact, all three touchdowns scored by the Cowboys were by tight ends, with Gavin Escobar getting the other score. -- Vaughn McClure

Baltimore Ravens: Steve Smith is clearly not happy after being held to two receptions and dropping the potential winning touchdown in the season opener. As a teammate once said, a motivated Smith is a dangerous one. Since 2011, Smith has averaged 6.4 catches and 104 yards receiving after games in which he was held to two or fewer catches. This should be a bounce-back week for him. -- Jamison Hensley
