Week 1 Fantasy Football Circle Of Trust

Chargers QB Philip Rivers

Threw 10 interceptions last season with 3 in both games vs. the Chiefs. Lot of changes to the Chiefs defense this season. I anticipate a dazzling performance from Rivers.

 

Redskins RB Chris Thompson

I don’t see Adrian Peterson, Rob Kelley, Samaje Perine or anyone else cutting into Thompson’s passing game workload. Solid PPR Flex this week.

 

Rams WR Robert Woods

A road matchup with the Raiders as the 2nd game on the MNF doubleheader. My commitment to excellence will be to make waiver pickups this season based off who plays the Raiders that week.

 

Bears TE Trey Burton

Will be heavily involved in making the Packers Safeties and Linebackers play out in coverage.

 

Chargers K Caleb Sturgis

Dazzled the coaching staff in winning a camp battle over Roberto Aguayo.  Chargers offense should provide Sturgis with plenty of scoring opportunities.

 

Saints Defense

Ryan Fitzpatrick and the Bucs will have to play catch up leading to Sacks and Interceptions.

 

Dolphins MLB Raekwon McMillan

Tore his ACL and missed last season for Dolphins. Struggled in coverage at The Ohio State University, but has opportunity to make plays in Miami.

10-Team PPR Snake Draft

10-team PPR snake draft. Site graded out this team as a C- and will finish as a 2-12 squad.  I got a good laugh out of reading the projections. I believe this team has depth at Wide Receiver, Tight End, Quarterback, and Defense. The Running Backs are young and unproven.  Because Running Backs are the position with the most volatility, I tend to take the Hugh Hefner approach looking for newer younger models. Kerryon Johnson was passed over a few times until finally getting selected. I strongly considered him in a few rounds.  I spent most of the clock deciding between Derrick Henry and Royce Freeman, thankfully ended up getting both.  Aaron Jones and Jordan Wilkins are both upside picks at that stage of the draft. I believe Jones will lead the Packers in rushing this season despite missing the first couple weeks of the season.  Wilkins has looked decent in training camp and Marlon Mack is banged up.

 

I went up to get 2 of the Defenses I like based off league scoring. Defenses often can get pinball type scoring in this league setup.  If I didn’t get Travis Kelce, Trey Burton would have been the player I targeted at Tight End. Mike Gesicki or George Kittle were my backup Tight End targets.  Quarterback I wanted a combo of Carson Wentz or Andrew Luck with Jimmy Garoppolo or Patrick Mahomes.  I feel comfortable with Davante Adams, Stefon Diggs, Michael Crabtree, and Robert Woods as my top 4 Wide Receivers. Entering the draft I didn’t think this would be my group.  Agholor is sneaky value to me with Alshon Jeffery possibly missing the start of the season.  Agholor is dealing with a lower body injury, but could be ready for the start of the season.  DJ Moore is the one that got away.  I may end up kicking myself for taking the Saints defense instead of Moore.  I do research on Kickers because it’s a spot on my roster. The Vikings traded up to get Carlson in the 5th round during the draft so he was the Kicker I wanted.  Here’s my roster, feel free to leave comments.
