Fantasy Football Cheat Sheet: Wide Receiver Rankings Week 1

Antonio Brown starts the season atop the wide receiver rankings

Week 1 of the fantasy football season has officially arrived and although many of us feel comfortable with our starting lineups post-draft there may be some depth issues and lineup questions. Rankings based on matchup and week can help make tough decisions, well, less tough I suppose.

 

The risk of overthinking, and later second-guessing, is always there, but when in doubt rankings can be a great tiebreaker from week to week. The typical studs sit atop the rankings while some players get knocked down based on new teams, or injured quarterbacks (looking at you, Sammy Watkins and T.Y. Hilton).

 

And Week 1 also has an unexpected schedule change, as Miami-Tampa Bay was moved to Week 11 because of Hurricane Irma, which means no Mike Evans, Jarvis Landry, DeVante Parker, DeSean Jackson or Kenny Stills.
