You’ve been waiting more than half of a year to fill out a lineup for your Fantasy Football team! Our Week 1 Fantasy Football rankings are here to help you get started off on the right foot.
Whether you were a part of the 10 percent (or lower) that brought home a Fantasy Football championship title last year or not, we’re here to help you into the promised land in 2015.
This first week of the NFL season brings a ton of what Las Vegas expects to be some high-scoring games, with powerful offenses like the Eagles and Falcons doing battle in Atlanta. Don’t forget the Cowboys and Giants, since they always seem to have big weekends offensively when they face off against each other.
While there will be a few healthy players that will join us, watching these games from their couches, Tom Brady will in fact be out there after his four-game suspension was overturned. That’s great news for TE Rob Gronkowski and WRs Julian Edelman, Danny Amendola and Brandon Lafell.
However, guys like LeGarrette Blount, Martavis Bryant and Le’Veon Bell will be missing Thursday night’s NFL Kickoff game between the Steelers and Patriots.
Also, don’t forget to try out “My Playbook” from FantasyPros. This is easily the greatest in-season Fantasy Football tool around, and you can use it for multiple leagues, easily. Figure out within a couple clicks which free agents in your league you should pick up, and which players you should drop, or who to start or sit. It’s simply the best.
