As we head into Week 1 of the NFL and fantasy football season, every team and player has a clean slate. The drafts are (hopefully done) and the season is ready to begin (except for those players from Miami and Tampa Bay).
New season aside, the Week 1 fantasy quarterback rankings are more reflective of what we’ve seen in the past, as preseason performances aren’t necessarily the best barometer. Tom Brady, coming off another Super Bowl win, is the top-ranked quarterback for Week 1. He hasn’t shown signs of slowing down, and until he does, he’s still one of the best quarterbacks in the game.
(Just remember there's no Jameis Winston or Jay Cutler this week because the Tampa Bay-Miami game was moved to Week 11 due to the threat of Hurricane Irma.)
