Fantasy Football Start ‘Em, Sit ‘Em: Week 1 Predictions

Let the tinkering begin. Week 1 of the NFL season is (finally) on the horizon, and fantasy football owners now get to enjoy the always fun process of going back and forth on their lineup decisions until they are ready to quit the game forever--and then repeating that process for the next 15 weeks. Fortunately, there shouldn't be a ton of difficult decisions to make in Week 1. There likely haven't been an egregious amount of new developments since you drafted, and there aren't a lot of injuries that will make owners have to scramble for backups. Nevertheless, there always teams with more fantasy-friendly matchups than others. You know to always start Antonio Brown, and you know to always bench Cordarrelle Patterson unless you're in an All-Cordarrelle league, but what about those fringe players?
