NFL Week 1 Fantasy Notes

As we did last year, we'll be bringing you our notes here from our FANTASYDRAFTHELP.COM INSIDER program (Thursdays, 9-11 PM EDT) to give you the game-by-game perspective on who are the good and bad marginal starters for each week. We will never insult your intelligence by telling you to play someone like Peyton Manning -- we limit our recommendations to the much less obvious decisions. Links for each game take you to detailed game previews on with video previews available there as well.


Sunday, Sept. 9
Atlanta at Minnesota 1:00 pm Horrible fantasy matchup, but Horn is worth a look.
Carolina at St. Louis 1:00 pm Both Carolina RBs merit a start as they will get a lot of work.
Denver at Buffalo 1:00 pm The Cutler-Marshall battery should get off to a good jump start.
Kansas City at Houston 1:00 pm Another horrible fantasy game, but the overrated Green is good for a rare start.
Miami at Washington 1:00 pm The Green-Chambers combo will get a chance to get off to a good start.
New England at N.Y. Jets 1:00 pm Jet WRs may be a better-than-usual play, especially if New England pulls away.
Philadelphia at Green Bay 1:00 pm Almost no marginal fantasy plays here, but monitor Hunt for future vulture status.
Pittsburgh at Cleveland 1:00 pm Holmes will get a good chance to justify his sleeper status here.
Tennessee at Jacksonville 1:00 pm Yet another miserable fantasy matchup, but Young gets a chance to shine here.
Chicago at San Diego 4:15 pm Rookie Olsen could really surprise here and merits a start. Benson is not a good option.
Detroit at Oakland 4:15 pm Bell is a decent, not great, option as he tries to grab a permanent hold on the job.
Tampa Bay at Seattle 4:15 pm Williams will get a good chance to put the nightmare of '06 behind him here.
N.Y. Giants at Dallas 8:15 pm The overrated Jacobs needs a good beginning to the year, but may get it here. Contrary to many pundits, Romo is not an every-week fantasy starter yet but should get the nod here.

Monday, Sept. 10
Baltimore at Cincinnati, 7:00 This should be a shootout and Mason and Clayton are stronger-than-usual plays.
Arizona at San Francisco, 10:15 In the second wild game of the night, Smith is a strong play for Frisco.
