The fantasy football world has lagged behind when it comes to effectively measuring the impact blocking has on fantasy production, so last year I devised a grading system that uses multiple advanced metrics to project how blocking matchups will impact fantasy football performance in the upcoming week's contests. (The details of the system can be found here).

The entire list of the Week 2 overall matchup grades are posted below, along with a detailed look at some of the favorable and unfavorable blocking matchups fantasy managers should be aware of and how those could impact their start/sit decisions. Subjects here include whether Ben Roethlisberger, Matt Ryan or Amari Cooper can rebound after disappointing Week 1 performances, and an incredibly favorable blocking matchup that could produce a high volume of upside candidates.
