The Extra Point Poll: Week 2


From Austin Schindel of @XFINITYSports:

Thank you for participating in the opening week of The Extra Point Poll presented by XFINITY. As expected the top two picks in the 2012 NFL Draft did not disappoint. Robert Griffin III and Andrew Luck both played well in their rookie debuts. However, it was RGIII that came out on top in Week 1 in the poll and on social media. Griffin III (@RGIII) was one of the most talked about players on Twitter last weekend with "RGIII" and "RG3" both trending throughout Sunday afternoon's Redskins game. Griffin III threw for 320 yards and two touchdowns in the Redskins' win over the Saints, while Luck passed for 309 yards and one TD score in the Colts' Week 1 loss to the Bears.

For the Week 2 matchup, we want to know your thoughts on the top two wide receivers in fantasy football: Detroit Lions WR Calvin Johnson (@Bigplaycj) and Atlanta Falcons WR Julio Jones (@juliojones_11). Many fantasy experts, including Ray Guilfoyle from, think Jones can overtake Johnson as the No. 1 wide receiver in fantasy football this season. Jones certainly put the pressure on Calvin Johnson in Week 1. In Week 1, Jones beat the injury-depleted Kansas City Chiefs defense for two touchdowns on six receptions and 108 yards receiving. While Johnson caught six of his seven targets for 111 yards in the Lions' comeback win over the St. Louis Rams, he ultimately ended the game without a single touchdown. This week, Johnson will take on the tough San Francisco 49ers defense on Sunday Night Football, while Jones will be at home against Peyton Manning and the Denver Broncos on Monday Night Football.

Which WR will score more RedZone touchdowns in Week 2: Calvin Johnson or Julio Jones? Vote now in the poll below and remember to tweet me with all your fantasy related questions @XFINITYSports.

Good luck!
