Fantasy Forecast Week 1

Welcome to The Fantasy Forecast .. Week 1. The NFL season is upon us today! Football fans across the country are excited for the opening kickoff tonight for the season. This also means Fantasy Football starts today as well.  I will be giving my fantasy forecast and a  weekly rankings every Thursday during the NFL regular season. For week 1, I will only list out the top 25 for QB and RB position based upon matchups. I will include a preview with the Thursday Night game featuring the Saints and Vikings.  Starting week 2 I will take a look into each game and forecast the players that look good/bad for the upcoming games. The forecast will be based upon the standard scoring system (4pts per TD pass, no ppr,  6pt per TD run). If you have any questions about certain games please feel free to email me at and I can include the questions at the end of the segment.

Opening Night Forecast

Vikings @ Saints: Yes the Opening Game is here! The Thursday night showdown should be a fun one to watch for fantasy players.  The first game of the season has a few must starts as always..  Brees, Peterson, Colston and Favre.  With Sidney Rice out, I like Visanthe Shiancoe and Bernard Berrian for the Vikings offense. I actually like Berrian more than Percy Harvin because the Saints will focus on watching Harvin all game long. For the Saints, I like Devery Henderson and Pierre Thomas in this high scoring game. The players I would stay away from are Reggie Bush, Robert Meacham, and Jeremy Shockey for the Saints and Percy Harvin for the Vikings. I would also sit both D/St units in this game.
