NFL Fantasy Weekly Rankings PPR Leagues Week One
Here we go again with another wild year of fantasy football now upon us. It’s time for all those great players on the draft day to either put up or go down into the fantasy gutter for 2009. This week we at fantasy-info.com will only have our weekly section on wounded warriors. In the coming weeks we will have a more in depth listing but not for week one. The reason for this is that we firmly believe that for the most part you should start the players you drafted to start. This means that if you drafted Darren McFadden (plays the Chargers) as a starter, you should play him over Julius Jones (plays the Rams) this week. Last year, yours truly went away from this rule of thumb and started Thomas Jones over Reggie Bush. While Jones did have a good game against the Dolphins, Bush had a huge day against the Buccaneers.
Matt Cassel vs @ Ravens -Cassel may not miss this game with a bad knee, but he should. If the Chiefs are smart they will hold him out of this one. If he does play than Ray Lewis and the boys could give him a knockout blow.
Pierre Thomas vs Lions – Thomas is looking very unlikely to play in this one. In practice, he has been seen limping around and favoring his knee. It’s a shame that he probably won’t play as he faces the Lions poor defense.
Maurice Jones-Drew vs Colts– Fantasy owners got a scare last week when Drew went down against the Redskins. Look for Drew to be a go this weekend and have a fine game.
Bernard Berrian vs @ Browns– Berrian injured his hamstring in the Vikings first preseason game. Since that time, he has missed the rest of the preseason but did start practicing last week.
Hopefully he will be a go this weekend as he has a great matchup against the Browns shaky secondary.
