Fantasy Football: Week 1 Rankings

We finally made it to Week 1! After MONTHS of research and preparation, followed by a million mock drafts, your fantasy team is set and ready to make a championship run. Enjoy this feeling! Your team is full of potential with absolutely NO holes. Today is a good day.

Drafting and crafting your team is BY FAR the greatest part of fantasy football, but don’t forget, championships are won on the waiver wire. Don’t rest on your lorels. The fantasy football season is a marathon, not a sprint (insert “I sprint marathons” joke here).

There are PLENTY of gems waiting to be scooped up off the waiver wire, so pay close attention to everyone’s usage in Week 1. It also doesn’t hurt to be proactive and shoot your shot on low-rostered guys with potential value. If you can afford to add one player at the end of your bench, make it Kenneth Gainwell. The 22-year-old rookie out of Memphis could be the de facto pass-catching back in Philly. OK, my speech is over.

Let’s look at a few notable injured fantasy players we need to monitor heading into Week 1: Chris Godwin, Austin Ekeler, A.J. Brown, Saquon Barkley, Tyler Lockett, Odell Beckham Jr., Darrell Henderson Jr., Brandon Aiyuk, Josh Jacobs, Kenny Golladay, Noah Fant, Mecole Hardman, Curtis Samuel, Nelson Agholor, and Emmanuel Sanders.

If you’re reading this article, that means you’re serious about winning. The following half-PPR rankings have been meticulously thought out and researched. While luck plays a role in winning or losing in fantasy football, luck will always favor the prepared. Stay prepared and ride with us this season!

Let’s dominate Week 1 together!
