|Fantasy Football: Week 1 starts, sits||09.07.12 at 10:24 am ET|
Here are Rotobahn’s Week 1 starts and sits. These rankings are based on 12-team leagues and performance scoring. We’ve done our best to highlight players who may be either available or on the lineup bubble. After all, we all know we need to keep Tom Brady active.
If you are looking for more in-depth roster rankings, join us at Rotobahn.com, where we break things down even further.
Jay Cutler, Bears
Now well stocked with weapons, Cutler is a solid value this year. Start him in Week 1 if you have the need. We think he’ll post starter’s numbers.
Robert Griffin, Redskins
Griffin is the real deal and can play for you right away. His receivers are underrated, and TE Fred Davis is a plus option as well.
Joe Flacco, Ravens
Flacco is a guy you might find on waivers in small leagues, and he can post starter’s numbers in Week 1.
Stevan Ridley, Patriots
Ridley is going to get the rock a lot this week, so we see the big back as a good Week 1 play. Shane Vereen has been absent and the Law Firm has moved on to Cincinnati. This is Ridley’s time.
DeAngelo Williams, Panthers
The Buccaneers, who host Williams’ Panthers on Sunday, have to prove that they can stop the run. They have been very vulnerable to speed in recent years, and Williams is looking very speedy these days. Throw in a banged-up Jonathan Stewart and you have a solid recipe for success.
Michael Bush, Bears
If you are looking for an option, Bush could help. We like his chances against Indianapolis’ front seven, and we like Chicago’s chances of putting up some numbers. He’s a good flex option in bigger leagues.
Robert Turbin, Seahawks
This could be the play of the week, but make sure that Marshawn Lynch is not starting before you activate Turbin. (We’ll be sending out a tweet on this one; sign up to follow us on the Rotobahn homepage). Lynch has been battling a bad back all week.
Ben Tate, Texans
Keep tabs on Arian Foster. If he can’t play, you’d be certifiable to leave Tate on your bench. Foster did miss some practice time this week, so be prepared with Tate just in case.
Titus Young, Lions
Young should benefit from Calvin Johnson’s presence. He’ll draw Rams CB Cortland Finnegan and open things up for Young, who we see having a big week.
Sidney Rice, Seahawks
He is an injury risk, but he’s ready to go now and we think Seattle is underrated. Rice is worth a start as a third fantasy receiver.
Randy Moss, 49ers
We like Moss as a play if you need some help. He’s rested and he is a truly great athlete. Age 35 may not prove to be as big as deal as some think. He’s worth adding and starting for his upside alone, especially in large formats.
Kyle Rudolph, Vikings
He’ll be the second option in Minnesota, and we like his athleticism and hands. He fights for the ball and has the size to win against any safety. Christian Ponder is an underrated passer as well.
Lance Kendricks, Rams
He might be available and he might just give you starter’s production. He’s not a bad upside guy to go after. Kendricks is a good fit for the Rams’ new offense and new OC Brian Schottenheimer.
