Summary week 1: Well I enjoyed an excellent week 1 with a moral win along with a 1-0 record. Scoring more than any team besides alah Drew Brees. Not only did I make a bad decision by benching Hester and Harvin for Laurent Robinson, I still managed to win by 40 points. Now lets talk a little about week 1's surprises and what to expect from here on out.
Winners: Saints offense, All-Day, Reggie Wayne, Randy Moss, Eagles Defense, Ben Watson, Willis McGahee, Tim Hightower, Tom Brady, Santonio Holmes, Tony Romo, Hassleback and Patrick Crayton. (Sorry if I missed a few)
Losers: The Referees 1st and foremost, Pretty much all starting Rbs, Jay Cutler, Ravens Defense, Philip Rivers, Kurt Warner, Anthony Gonzalez (don't say I didn't tell you so), Matt Shaub, Andre Johnson, and plenty of others; including the injury to Mcnabb, which should have been a suspension.
Bad Weather forecast: It seems that every year many players have exceptionally bad first weeks, so don't get too discouraged with some of your underachievers. Although I would be concerned if you have anyone on Carolina, they are definitely in trouble at the QB position, which will effect the entire offense. The PT cruiser might lose his starting position to Mike Bell and Reggie is still fumbling. LT looks like he just might be running on low fuel, and even Kurt Warner is smelling fumes, which has to be disheartening for fantasy owners that have invested in the Cardinals offense. I think the teams that are in trouble are the ones that drafted RB,RB in the first two rounds because like I said before the season started it will be the year of the QB. I am just not sold on your top pick being an RB unless you can land one of the big 5 or even 3. I hope you didn't reach for McFadden too high either because him and Ray Rice will lose alot of carries and TD's to their backups. If I am wrong then you can my advice is as mediocre as the Fantasy experts at Yahoo, but I don't see it.
Blue Sky forecast: You have to be feeling pretty good about your team if you have one of the top 5 QB's with the exception of Hassleback (wouldn't read too much into whooping STL), and if your team has a solid wide receiver core, or one your players is playing the Lions. If you are in a league that has Ben Watson or Dustin Keller on the waiver wire, I would suggest you pick one of them up. It is clear that Brady will make Mr. Watson a Pro-Bowl TE once again now that Tony Gonzalez is in the NFC. If you are looking to pick up or start a Def. Green Bay, Phili, or NYJ will produce all season long.
Throughout the week please ask questions about who to sit and start and we can share our thoughts as the week closes in on Week 2 of the NFL.
