Start vs. Sit: Who to Play, Who to Bench Week 2
Start vs. Sit: Who to Play, Who to Bench Week 2

This article is part of our Start vs. Sit series.

Welcome to Week 2 and our second edition of Start/Sit for the 2018 season! Week 1 had a loaded slate with several meaningful games that will have playoff implications. Florida State, Michigan, and Miami are all preseason ranked teams that are forced to go back to the drawing board after opening week losses that exposed major flaws. As per usual, a great slate of Week 1 games generally leads to a lackluster Week 2 slate on paper, and this year is no different. There are some gems, though, with Clemson-Texas A&M, Georgia-South Carolina, Stanford-USC, Penn State-Pittsburgh, and Michigan State-Arizona State all providing us with plenty of entertainment value. With that, let's dive into the Week 2 slate and measure out the top start/sit candidates in each conference.

Courtney Lark, WR, Houston (vs. Arizona)

The Cougs find themselves as home favorites after Arizona laid an egg that only degenerates such as myself witnessed Saturday night. Lark lit it up in the season opener with 82 yards and two scores on just four catches against Rice. That efficiency won't transfer over against the 'Cats, but Lark is clearly the type of receiver who can stress any defense with his blistering speed and Arizona's secondary looked a little suspect against a less dangerous BYU passing attack in Week 1. Marquez Stevenson is also a fine option in the Houston receiving corps this week, and all sides of the Memphis-Navy game should be in play with the implied 70-point total.
