Fantasy Football Start ‘Em/Sit ‘Em: QB- Week 1

1 of 6

Each week I will be taking an in-depth look at the best and worst matchups for fantasy football players at each position. This first edition will take a closer look at three quarterbacks who have favorable week one matchups and three quarterbacks with less than desirable opponents.

Start ‘Em: Tom Brady (NE) v. Pittsburgh Steelers

Tom Brady’s availability for the first four games of the season was up in the air for about 90 percent of the offseason, but now Brady is clear to play on opening night on Thursday against the Steelers. Boy oh boy, I’m absolutely positive that Brady is ready to put on a show for the home town crowd and for his defending Super Bowl champion teammates.

In standard ESPN leagues, Brady is projected to be the No. 1 fantasy quarterback. Brady also has an amazing track record in seven career games against Pittsburgh with 2,316 yards, 18 touchdowns, and three interceptions. Expect Brady to flourish well in week one in this very favorable matchup.
