Week 1 Fantasy Football GameDAY!


Well it is finally here. The first Sunday of the NFL season. With that being said there isn’t too much on the fantasy front that is unexpected. Other then NE placing Sammy Morris as the #1 RB on their depth chart. This is typical for NE. I wouldn’t play any RB from NE until further notice. Besides with that high powered pass offense the running game is secondary.

Boldin is a no go. You heard it here first. I guarantee he doesn’t play today. Too much uncertainty coming out of AZ for him to play. Breaston is going to go. I actually think SF will ball control this game with the ground game. I am predicting SF to knock off AZ today. Fitz will be productive as always. He is a must start. As for Warner, let’s hope he gets enough protection from his line because all gloves are off. I have major concerns about Warner holding up all year.

Sleeper starts of the day. After I said to start Portis over Reggie Bush in the middle of the week I have had a change of heart. Pierre Thomas is not playing today. So that leaves Mike Bell and Bush to share the load against a lowly DET team. I play Bush and gamble. The upside is too great to ignore.  Bush puts up big points this week. You might as well benefit before he gets hurt again.

I also start Laurent Robinson this week. Avery is back but will be a bit rusty. SEA defense has some secondary issues. I know I said this earlier in the week but Robinson is a safe play this week and I would venture to say he even gets a TD this week.

James Davis a fantasy sleeper RB from CLE who has challenged Jamal Lewis this year. Davis got into a car accident yesterday. I send my thoughts and prayers his way for a speedy recovery. It looks like he just has a concussion but the head always worries me. He won’t me a factor this week but I wouldn’t have recommended playing him anyway because CLE is playing a strong MIN defense.

If you are desperate for a WR then Percy Harvin might be the play this week. I have a sneaking suspicion that Berrian will play but in a limited fashion. This opens the door for Harvin to have a decent week in a PPR league. Granted, I only play him if you are as insane as myself or REAL short at WR.

Looks like Moreno will be ineffective today due to him not being 100%. Start Correll Buckhalter with confidence against as soft CIN team.

Kevin Walter is also a no go today so Andre Davis is safe to start in his place. This is still a better play then Percy Harvin if you all were wondering.

I had to post a pic of my Ashley Dupree today. I love this girl. I would have paid $4000 for a night too if I had the cash. In all honesty I wish her the best. They did a good article in the NY Post about her today. There is also a much better pic of her in a 1940’s bikini if you want to go out and buy the paper. I love the  NY Post. It is so worth the price of admission!

Football is upon us and I look forward to a kick ass season!
