2018-19 NFL Week 1 Position Rankings

A few things to consider: 1. I’m going to be keeping my eyes glued to the Patriots vs Texans game, as if last year’s matchup is any indication, those two teams will be putting up fantasy points left and right. Look for Brady to slightly edge out Watson though in the points category, as I expect the Pats to defend their home turf today. 2. It’ll be interesting to see how OBJ comes back from a fractured ankle. Will he be a deep threat, or will he be a little timid in the opening weeks? Personally, I hope that he comes back healthy, because that guy is one of the most exciting players in the game. 3. The game I’m most looking forward to this week is definitely Steelers vs Browns. I have the Browns in a HUGE upset, but more on that in my Game Picks post. With all that said, here are my position rankings for Week 1 of the 2018-19 NFL Season:
