Aaron Rodgers and the Packers face a tough opening assignment against Seattle on the road
Fantasy Football 2014 Quarterback Rankings: Week 1

Week 1 of the 2014 fantasy football season is here and is there any surprise who leads the first installment of Athlon Sports' weekly Fantasy Football Quarterback Rankings? Peyton Manning was far and away fantasy's No. 1 scorer last season and as long as he stays healthy, he should post big passing numbers once again in 2014.

Jamaal Charles may not finish the 2014 season as the top running back, but he starts in that spot in Athlon Sports' Week 1 Fantasy Football Running Back Rankings.

Fantasy Football 2014 Defense/Special Teams Rankings: Week 1

Richard Sherman and the "Legion of Boom" open up at home against the Packers
Fantasy Football 2014 Defense/Special Teams Rankings: Week 1

To the victors go the spoils, which is one reason why Seattle checks in at No. 1 in Athlon Sports' Fantasy Football Defense/Special Teams Rankings? Yes, the defending Super Bowl champion Seahawks get a pretty tough opponent in Aaron Rodgers and the Green Bay offense, but Pete Carroll's defense was top dog in the NFL last season, dominated Denver's record-breaking offense in the Super Bowl, and just seems to play at a different level when it's at home in front of the "12th Man."

Stephen Gostkowski and the Patriots face Buffalo.
Unless you’re still a Garrett Hartley owner, there’s no reason to switch kickers now.

Unless you’re still a Garrett Hartley owner, there’s no reason to switch kickers now.

Matt Prater, Stephen Gostkowski, Adam Vinatieri all got you here and none of them are playing for anything this week. No pressure.

Justin Tucker, Mason Crosby, Nick Novak, Dan Bailey, each of them do have postseason aspirations on the line. Tons of pressure. But they have come through for the most part this season.

Fantasy Football 2013 Def/Special Teams Rankings: Week 17

Carolina has been a double-digit scoring defense/special teams 11 times this season.

Carolina has been a double-digit scoring defense/special teams 11 times this season, and gets an Atlanta team that was one of those 11.

The Panthers will go for the NFC South title against a Falcons team that they scored 21 against in Week 9, and have scored in double digits four more times in the seven games following.

It gets a little shaky projecting a good defense after that.

Jimmy Graham faces a Tampa Bay team he destroyed near the beginning of the season.

Fantasy Football 2013 Running Back Rankings: Week 17

DeMarco Murray has been solid when given the ball.
DeMarco Murray has been solid when given the ball, and there’s no reason to think that will stop this week against an Eagles team he did not see in the Week 8 meeting.

Fantasy’s top three running backs close out the 2013 regular season with three fantastic matchups.

LeSean McCoy draws a Dallas team allowing the most points to running backs. Jamaal Charles gets a San Diego team he scored 30 fantasy points against in Week 12. Matt Forte plays host to a Green Bay team he scored 26 points against in Week 9.

DeMarco Murray has been solid when given the ball, and there’s no reason to think that will stop this week against an Eagles team he did not see in the Week 8 meeting.

The greatest fantasy football season for a quarterback — assuming he can score five more points — comes to an end this week as Peyton Manning goes to Oakland.

 

Part of the 5,211 yards and 51 touchdowns he has so far came via a 31.7-point day against Oakland in Week 3. And that was only his ninth-best game of the season.

 

Fantasy Football 2013 Wide Receiver Rankings: Week 17

Josh Gordon can wrap up a stellar season against a Steelers team he destroyed in Week 12.
Josh Gordon can wrap up a stellar fantasy football season.

Dez Bryant leads the Week 17 receivers charge as the Dallas Cowboys play host to the Philadelphia Eagles in Sunday night’s NFC East title game. Bryant gets an Eagles team that allows the most to catches, yards and TDs per game to receivers. He had eight catches for 110 yards on 16 targets in their Week 7 meeting.

Fantasy Football 2013 Kicker Rankings: Week 16

Justin Tucker kicked six field goals on Monday night, including a 61-yarder that won the game
Fantasy Football 2013 Kicker Rankings: Week 16

Matt Prater is still No. 1 on Athlon Sports' fantasy football Week 16 kicker rankings, but there's no doubt who the most polarizing kicker is. After booting six field goals on Monday night, including the eventual game-winner from 61 yards out, Baltimore's Justin Tucker is either the most loved kicker right now or the most despised, depending on whether his exploits were the difference between a thrilling victory or a shocking defeat for your team.
