Week 1 Fantasy Football Rankings: .5 PPR

Another year, another holdout for Le’veon Bell. Weeeee!!! Time to ride the wave of the uncertain. We did it last season with Ezekiel Elliott when a suspension was looming every week. Now, Bell will most likely hold out for a prolonged period of time. This makes my Week 1 fantasy football rankings look a lot different than we thought they would just a week ago.

James Conner is a full-blown locked and loaded Rb2 with RB1 upside for as long as he is the starter for the Steelers. We saw DeAngelo Williams put up RB1 numbers just three seasons ago when he was the RB4 overall in Fantasy. Conner is a notable player that has shot up my rankings and should be started in all formats in Week 1. 

Week 1 Fantasy Football Rankings

Ok, let’s turn this piece up a notch…. IT IS WHEELS UP FOR KENNY STILLS. He is my current RB11 for Week 1. Last season he finished as the WR27 in .5 PPR. He is playing the Titans this week and will be the Dolphin’s WR1 for Week 1.

Fantrax Football CommissionerI expect Ryan Tannehill and the Dolphins t0 pass a lot in this game. Stills’ speed and deep-play ability make him a great flex start in Week 1.

In San Francisco, Alfred Morris is now the projected back who will get the most usage. While Matt Breida is a pass-catching running back, he is less than 200 pounds which will limit his durability and workload. 

Anthony Miller will be a force to be reckoned with out of the slot for the Bears. Defenses will have a hard time locking in on him with Trey Burton on the other side (or right next to him in the Bears’ patent bunch formation). He is now a WR3 in my Fantasy Football Rankings.
