This I my first article since the end of the 2015 season, and you guessed it, it’s about NFLRUSH.com fantasy football!
Who will I start in week one? Well, I’m about to tell you. Hey, maybe I can give you tips on why as well.
Let’s start at the quarterback position. My pick here would be Aaron Rodgers
. He has an easy matchup against the Jacksonville Jaguars, a defense on the rise, but not good enough to stop the spark that the Green Bay Packers have on offense. Don’t forget Aaron Rodgers
is getting reunited with Jordy Nelson, a receiver who can pack a punch. Nelson was out this season.
There’s no denying Adrian Peterson,
the star running back for the Minnesota Vikings. He is going up against a Tennessee Titans team that no matter how hard they try, can’t quite get above 500. With Teddy Bridgewater
most likely out for the season, handoffs will be coming Peterson’s way. Once AP gets the ball, we all know what is coming next. Let’s just leave it at a big fat W on the Viking’s record.
could leave the rest of the wide receivers in the dust if he gets the ball enough, because he can rack up a massive amount of points. With the new face of Brock Osweiler throwing him the ball, and Jaelen Strong
across the field, the Chicago Bears, the Texans week one matchup won’t know what to do, which could allow that trio to have a field day.
Tight End is a hard nut to crack in week one, with Rob Gronkowski
having an overpowering Arizona Cardinals defense to deal with, and Greg Olse
n going up against a nearly unstoppable Denver Broncos defense. So, that only leaves one more really strong tight end left. That is, Jason Witten
of the Dallas Cowboys. What else can I say besides the New York Giants, can’t stop him, OR Dez Bryant
On this next pick I’m going with my team. The Buffalo Bills D/ST should do the trick in week one. Against a weak Ravens offense that can’t seem to find the light, I think that it is safe to say that the Buffalo Bills D/ST can get the job done. There are other strong D/STs for week one, like the Seahawks, or Packers D/STs, but I just thought that the Bills, with the new additions of Shaq Lawson
, and Reggie Ragland
are a tad better on the defensive side of the ball.
For my wild card, I’m going to go with Big Ben Roethlisberger, The quarterback that never disappoints. With Le’veon Bell
out for the first four games of the regular season, Roethlisberger will be passing the football… A LOT. Not to mention, Ben has tons of weapons around him, like Antonio Brown, Sammie Coates,
and Markus Wheaton
. Being surrounded by these playmakers sets Ben Roethlisberger
and the rest of the Steelers up for success, even without Le’veon Bell.
