Before this week’s games were played I don’t think you could have found one person on the face of the Earth that would have said that Eli Manning would finish as this week’s #1 fantasy QB, and Kirk Cousins would completely implode and throw 4 INTs and just 1 TD. And not that it matters for anyone outside of 2QB leagues, but the Bills finally benched E.J. Manuel in favor of Kyle Orton on Monday.
It’s been said that fantasy football doesn’t really start until the bye weeks kick in. While that may be true for some, being 0-3 heading into week 4 pretty much means you’re behind the curve and need help!
Week 1 was devastating for all those who put their high hopes on Tony Romo, DeMarco Murray, and Dez Bryant as the Cowboys came out firing on no cylinders. However, a season cannot and should not be judged by one game alone.
With week 1 of the NFL season in the books, we get to take a look back and see what players helped fantasy football owners start the season 1-0, and what players may find themselves on virtual unemployment when the Tuesday morning waiver wires’ open.
Fantasy football drafts are over, rosters are set, and everyone in the league still has the thought in their minds that they will be the ones holding up their hand in victory when the regular season is over.
