With week one of the NFL season in the books, fantasy football owners everywhere are already turning their attention to the games ahead over the next seven days.

Fortunately, from here on in, I will now be doing a fantasy football weekly column, giving you all the inside advice you need to take home the prize this season.

Let's get to it with some sleeper picks you should be picking up.

1 - James Jones - Green Bay Packers - WR

My first player to pick up in Week two is James Jones. His return to Green Bay was nothing short of incredible, catching two touchdown passes but only 51 yards.

Jones is only owned in 30.8% of ESPN leagues. Green Bay faces the Seahawks next week but, having allowed 34 points to St. Louis in Week 1, I'd be willing to bet Jones will find the end zone next Sunday.

2 - Jason Witten - Dallas Cowboys - TE

Someone you may want to start next week is Cowboys TE Jason Witten. He's owned in 98% of ESPN leagues, but star WR Dez Bryant is expected to miss 4-6 weeks with a broken foot.

That means Witten will become Tony Romo's number one target. Dallas takes on the Eagles next week, and with Philadelphia's weak secondary, look for Witten to have a field day.

3 - Carson Palmer - Arizona Cardinals - QB

A QB that will be very valuable this season is Arizona's Carson Palmer. He's owned in 47.9% of ESPN leagues.

Last week against the Saints, he threw for 307 yards and 3 TD's. Arizona faces Chicago in Week two, a team with an even worse secondary than New Orleans. Look for Palmer to be a bit of a sleeper next week.

4 - Kendall Wright - Tennessee Titans - WR

My sleeper pick for Week two is Kendall Wright. The Tennessee WR was rookie Marcus Mariota's top target in week one, putting up 4 receptions for 101 yards and a TD.

Tennessee battles Cleveland next week. Cleveland doesn't have a very solid secondary and they will be distracted with Mariota's running abilities, leaving Wright open will be something they regret.
