Week one of the NFL and Fantasy Football season has finally arrived which means it’s time to make some lineup decisions.
The opening week of the NFL season is always full of excitement and optimism. This extends to the fantasy football world where every owner feels they have a chance to bring home a championship.
However, some will quickly realize that their team might not be as strong as they thought. It’s also a time where some make their first lineup mistake.
Fantasy starts with doing the research so you have a strong draft. However, it’s equally as important to keep focused and make proper lineup decisions. All fantasy owners have gone through the pain of having a high scorer on their bench.
Producing the right lineup is a mix of reviewing the matchups and luck. My strategy is just review the situation for each player and go with my gut.
The first week of the season is usually the toughest because we really don’t have a great handle on each team’s gameplan. We know the stud players like Todd Gurley will get plenty of touches, but do we really know how the Cincinnati Bengals are going to split carries?
Most are going to start the guys that have name value. However, don’t hesitate to take a risk or two early in the year. This sit-start article has some suggestions on who should or shouldn’t be in your lineup.
Good luck to everyone and try not to over think your starting lineups. Hey, it’s only week one!!
