The countdown to kickoff is down to mere hours now as the NFL season is about to get underway in New York as the Giants and Cowboys face off in an NFC East divisional clash.
The opening game not only signals the end of “fake football” it also means it is time to get your fantasy football rosters set and ready for week one action. With a Wednesday start some leagues will lock for the whole weekend while others will only lock players who play so make sure to check your league rules so you don’t get surprised and stuck with a lineup you don’t want.
Don’t base your lineup solely on draft order either. There are many factors to consider when figuring out who to start and who to sit. Here’s the links to our Fantasy CPR staff’s composite positional rankings for week 1:
There’s no worse feeling than having the points to win sitting on your bench and starting a player who under performs or is injured. Sometimes that kind of tragedy unavoidable, like when a player goes down mid-game or is a late inactive. However, as maddening as they are, it’s those kinds of variables and the unpredictability from game to game that make fantasy football as much fun as it is.
At Fantasy CPR we’ll do our best throughout the season to keep you informed on all the trends, injuries, and emerging players, so that you can ride the ups and downs of the season all the way to the championship. With the information you can find here, you can make your lineup decisions and get the most points possible from your team. Check back each week for a new set of rankings.
