Well now that was quite the opening week for the NFL now, wasn’t it? We saw some high-powered offenses, some tough defensive plays, and plenty of fantasy scoring to go around. Surprisingly, the number of injuries was held to a minimum, yet the waiver wire will be a hot-bed of action this week as we also saw a few names emerge from the shadows to take center stage. With so much to talk about, let’s just get started right away with a collection of notes from around the league and the potential fantasy fallout that you as an owner may need to address.
Good morning, everyone, and welcome to Week 1 of the NFL regular season and the first Sunday of your 2013 fantasy season! Every week, I’ll be doing game capsules, much like I did the other day for the Denver/Baltimore game. But due to scheduling conflicts caused by the holiday weekend earlier in the week, there is little or no time for that to be done here. So instead, I’m just going to go game by game and throw you a relevant fantasy thought or two that may be helpful to you for this week.
It’s a shame Hank Williams Jr. ruined it all with his social and political views, otherwise I could ask you all if you’re ready for some football. But thanks to Eagles wide receiver Riley Cooper we’ve had our fix of racism for the season and instead we’re left to just fantasize over some scantily clad country gal singing some song that sort of sounds like a football theme. Yes folks, the NFL season is finally upon us! After months of mini-camps, OTAs, training camp and preseason snoozers, it’s all about to begin tonight with the Ravens and the Broncos squaring off for the inaugural game of the 2013-14 season. And with that brings us to the opening of the fantasy football season. You’ve had your draft, you’ve possibly made a few tweaks to the roster here and there and now it’s time to see if you can actually put your money where your mouth is. We’re going to have extensive coverage here at Fantasy Alarm and we’re going to start out official in-season coverage right here with a fantasy preview of tonight’s game.
