I have a few tips to set your fantasy lineup for the start of the 2013 season. Let's start with the wild card spot. There seems to be a trend in the NFL with running quarterbacks. These types of quarterbacks won't always win the game but they do put up a lot of fantasy points running and passing.
Some examples of running quarterbacks are RG3, Russell Wilson, Cam Newton, Colin Kaepernick, and then there are some rookie quarterbacks that can run too. Some consistant pocket passers are Drew Brees, Peyton Manning, Matt Ryan, Aaron Rodgers, Tom Brady, Matthew Stafford, and Joe Flacco.
You can rotate those quarterbacks depending on their matchup. For your running back, you should pick one that doesn't have to share the carries, like Arian Foster, Ray Rice, Adrian Peterson, Trent Richardson, Doug Martin, Marshawn Lynch, or Jamaal Charles. Again you want to look at their matchup before you choose one.
For wide receivers I would pick them based on your quarterback and the opposing defense. Some good receivers that have good quarterbacks are Calvin Johnson, Larry Fitzgerald, Dez Bryant, Julio Jones, Roddy White, and A.J. Green.
For tight ends I would suggest picking Jimmy Graham, Rob Gronkownski, or Antonio Gates. The defense that you should pick should be based on how good the opposing offense is, but your defense should be strong in general. I hope these tips will help you win your league in NFL RUSH.
