For fantasy football, we care about offense. Defenses matter (especially if, like me, you were one of the lucky ones starting the Jaguars’ or http://www.dusenadup.com/matt-kalil-jersey-c-1_33.html Rams’ defenses in Week 1), but we’re looking for yards and points.
Week 1 failed in that regard. The past four years, Week 1 has seen teams average 350 yards and 2.3 touchdowns per game, averaging 22.7 points. Well, in Week 1 of this year, teams averaged 314.1 yards, 1.9 touchdowns, and 20.2 points. This means that there is a really good chance you are disappointed with your fantasy team after Week 1 … but most of your leaguemates are as well (in my home league, 10 of 12 teams failed to meet projections).
The old saw goes that offense is ahead of defense early in the year, that scores start high and tail off. If that’s true, then we could be in for a long season from a fantasy perspective. But for now, let’s treat Week 1 as a slightly disappointing http://www.hl-sapporo.com/andy-lee-jersey-c-1_24.html blip, and look ahead to Week 2. Below, we’re taking a look at some good and bad fantasy situations from the first week of the season with all 32 teams in action.
