Week One is so much Fun!

People tell me I'm fun on twitter: https://twitter.com/KingScally

We’ve never seen anything in the NFL like we have with Antonio Brown. I wish him well in what he does with life. If he needs help, I hope he gets it. If he signs with another team, I hope he does well.  This guy just needs some help. Can you help him? Wait… as I’m writing this he just signed with the Pats… Does he become Randy Moss or an afterthought? I say he has a Moss like season!

Week one is always strange. Did anyone think Thursday night was fun? Trubisky can’t throw left to save his life… yet he did. Rodgers doesn’t have an offensive line… And people are hung up on David Montgomery? Here are my week one predictions( tiered and numbered). 

Just a quick reminder: These are not necessarily who I believe are the best overall players, but the guys who I think will do the best given their matchup… Dak isn’t even that good… but he should tear up the Giants. Cam Newton is phenomenal, but he’s nursing a sore ankle and plays the wonderful Rams DST…

Try me on twitter...I have a family event Sunday, so I’ll try my best to respond. If not… you can always hit up IBN   https://twitter.com/IBNincarcerated . As always, my tiers and rankings are PPR and based on my personal research. You ultimately hit submit on your team! This is your choice!

A lot of teams will be running back by committee again this season. Denver will roll Philip Lindsey, but Royce Freeman and Devonte Booker will get snaps. Who will be the primary ball carrier for the Bills or 49ers? Philly or Tampa???  We all know the top 5 guys are THE guys. After that…each guy has someone in the wings waiting to steal snaps and TD’s.
