Tuesday 28th Mar 2017

With all the turmoil from the off-season, opening day could not come soon enough.  Seeing the Jaguars cut their projected opening day starting quarterback just days before the start of the season was a shock.  Finding out that Peyton Manning would miss at least week one was certainly no surprise.  I am definitely not “flabbergasted” that Tiki Barber did not get a call. 

A whole lot of sorting out between contenders and pretenders goes on in week one.  But there are a few we can safely assume going into week one:

  1. The really bad teams are likely to include Buffalo, Cincinnati, Carolina, Seattle, Oakland,. Jacksonville, and San Francisco;
  2. The really good teams are likely to include Green Bay, Pittsburgh, Baltimore, Atlanta, Philadelphia, San Diego, NY Jets, and New England;
  3. At least one highly rated player will go down with a significant injury;
  4. At least one player that was not selected in virtually any fantasy drafts will burst out and become the hottest fantasy free agent around

Good luck to all this fantasy football season!

Below are the weekly player rankings.  This week, the rankings more generally reflect the overall rankings.  After week one, these rankings will be more specific to the matchups for the week.
