Odell is a must start. I don’t expect top numbers from him this week. AJ Green should have a big week one against the Colts. Josh Gordon is a tough call this week. In deep leagues i’d give him a shot.
David Johnson is back in action after a year off. Gurley looks to follow up on a great season. Will Leveon Bell be ready for week 1? If he isn’t, James Connor is a must start in all formats until he returns. It should be a big start for Christian McCaffrey in Carolina.
I’m not touching Eli, Dak or Andrew Luck in week one. I’n not real high on Garoppolo in Minnesota. I’d rather go with a vet like Roethlisberger. Case Keenum could surprise at home against Seattle.
There’s not much to gamble on in week 1. Play your starters and hope Trey Burton, David Njoku and Evan Engram become trusted weekly starts. Jordan Reed isn’t a sure thing to play. But if he does he’s worth a start.
Nathan Peterman and the Bills head to Baltimore. New Orleans takes on veteran quarterback Ryan Fitzpatrick and Arizona is a strong start at home. There’s been a lot of talk about the Giants offense. The Jaguars will crush Eli Manning in Week 1.

Antonio Brown returns as the top receiver. Can Odell Beckham jr, DeAndre Hopkins or another best him this season? Who will catch passes in Dallas? Look out for a few rookies to become fantasy relevant.
