STARTS & SITS for Week 1 Fantasy Football

Good Morning!!! The NFL Season is BACK!!! I hope you drafted Clyde Edwards-Helaire because the dude is a LOCK!! Anyhow, this is who I think you should definitely start and sit in week one.

START – QB – Dak Prescott – As an Eagles fan I hate to bring this guy as a start but the Rams defense is suspect. Screw that Ramsey contract and jump on the Dak train.

SIT – QB – Carson Wentz – I hate to say it but sit Wentz. The offensive line scares me. Miles Sanders is out. As of me writing this, Lane is playing but there is an injury the Eagles are hiding.

START – RB – Joe Mixon – Mixon needs the rock to be fed to him. Joe Burrows is a rookie so I expect a focus on the run.

SIT – RB – Nick Chubb – I will air on the side of the Baltimore Ravens defense. Add in the Kareem Hunt mix. I am sitting Chubb.

START – WR – Chris Godiwn – My man is a lock with no Mike Evans. The Saints added Malcom Jenkins but I don’t think it will stop the targets and yardage generated from Godwin.

SIT – WR – Calvin Ridley – I think he will have a solid year but I’m fading on week 1. The Seahawks added Jamaal Adams which they will build an entire secondary around to dominate. I am holding Calvin till Week 2.

START – TE – Zach Ertz – Carson Wentz will be running for his life with the makeshift online Howie Roseman has for Week 1. He will be looking for his security blanket so big day for Ertz.

SIT – Rob Gronkowski – PAUSE…………….New Offense and the same QB. Fade Gronk! Big Year for OJ Howard!

Defense and Kickers – Search the matchup and roll with it!
