Atlanta Falcons @ Minnesota Vikings
Start: Kirk Cousins
Sit: Matt Ryan
Atlanta permitted the most dream focuses to quarterbacks a year ago while checking in 29th in pass guard DVOA (and they didn’t address barrier until Round Four of the NFL draft), so Cousins ought to have the option to exploit his weapons Sunday (expecting Stefon Diggs suits up).
Alternately, the Vikings gave up the second-least dream focuses to quarterbacks a year ago, surrendering minimal scores through the air. They play particularly intense at home, Julio Jones is beat up with foot damage, and quarterback is very profound, so you can show improvement over Ryan in Week 1.
Washington Redskins @ Philadelphia Eagles
Start: Chris Thompson, Jordan Howard
The simple answer is to sit all Washington players in this mind-boggling matchup in which they’ll be missing Trent Williams, yet in case you’re searching for a PPR sleeper or shoddy DFS choice, take a pamphlet on Thompson, who could be bounty occupied in the passing game given the feasible game content and shortage of options on offense (Adrian Peterson may even be a solid scratch). Philadelphia yielded the second-most gets to running backs last season.
The Eagles are close to twofold digit home top picks, have a sizable favorable position in advance and will probably be ensuring a lead during the time half. Miles Sanders has all the more long haul upside, however this is a board of trustees at the present time, and Howard is going to play as seemingly the association’s top obstructing back in the NFL. The most loved for objective line work, Howard should hit pay soil Sunday, so treat him as a main 20 RB alternative in Week 1.
Wild ox Bills @ New York Jets
Sit: Devin Singletary, Robby Anderson
Singletary is the overwhelming most loved to lead Buffalo’s backfield in contacts this season, however he’s right now parting time with both T.J. Yeldon and Frank Gore (who some way or another arrived at the midpoint of 4.6 YPC as a multi year old running behind Miami’s hostile line last season). The youngster gets an extreme first test out and about against a resistance that additional Quinnen Williams in the draft.
Anderson shows up over his calf damage, and he’ll be a purchase low focus after this week with a splendid longterm viewpoint, however you’ll need him sidelined Sunday when he’ll be shadowed by Tre’Davious White. The Bills surrendered the least dream focuses to outside beneficiaries last season, and Adam Gase’s offenses have completed rearward in plays per game two of the previous three years.
Baltimore Ravens @ Miami Dolphins
Start: Mark Ingram, Albert Wilson
Late reports of a board of trustees in Baltimore’s backfield wasn’t perfect news for those rostering Ingram, yet there will be a huge amount of contacts to go around, and Week 1 displays a Dolphins front-seven that was base five in focuses permitted to running backs a year ago. The Ravens have a quick paced framework, so Miami’s resistance will be depleted in Sunday’s warmth.
Wilson is going to play the opening significantly more this season — a territory where he’s flourished when recently given the opportunity — and furthermore Baltimore’s most helpless on barrier. Kenny Stills is gone, and no QB focuses on the opening more than Ryan Fitzpatrick, so Wilson is a charming sleeper (both this week and for the season).
Kansas City Chiefs @ Jacksonville Jaguars
Sit: Sammy Watkins
Start: Leonard Fournette in DFS
More than six street games last season, Watkins totaled 17 gets for 205 yards without a touchdown, and this week he’ll be confronting A.J. Bouye and organization, who yielded the least dream focuses to wideouts in 2018. You’ll need Watkins immovably on the seat Sunday.
I’m not idealistic Fournette remains sound all season, however he’s taking a gander at a major outstanding task at hand in Week 1 entering crisp, with little challenge in the backfield and against a Kansas City group that had a generally terrible run guard DVOA last season. The Chiefs’ quick pace should prompt more plays as well, and the expansion by subtraction of Blake Bortles ought to radically support Jacksonville.
Tennessee Titans @ Cleveland Browns
Sit: Corey Davis
Start: Rashard Higgins
Davis will manage Denzel Ward and a solid Cleveland auxiliary, flimsy QB play and likely less volume with Adam Humphries, A.J. Darker and Delanie Walker now around.
Cleveland’s new No. 3 beneficiary gets Malcolm Butler and a profoundly good first matchup, and it sets up well considerably further with Odell Beckham Jr. beat up (hip), and David Njoku confronting a Tennessee D that secured tight closures last season. Higgins is a sleeper and a modest DFS alternative this week.
