After a longer than usual wait because there were no preseason games, the NFL is finally ready to get back to the field, which also means fantasy football is back! Yes, you might still have to squeeze in another draft or get those last-minute pool entries submitted. I know I was nervous that we might not have a season, but it looks we are going to kick things off on schedule.
Week 1 fantasy football rankings are typically little more than a reflection of preseason rankings. I am pretty much riding with the ECR (expert consensus rankings) this week. However, the big exception for me this week is Miles Boykin. I really like Boykin this year and can't understand why he is so under the radar. I think he starts to make me look smart right out of the blocks.
