The start of the fantasy season is finally here!  By now, you have likely completed your draft and you’re just counting the seconds until Thursday’s game between the Ravens and Broncos (exactly 161,722 at the time this sentence is being written).  However, before the games begin, you have a few decisions to make.

With the exception of Rob Gronkowski, you’re probably thinking about playing the people you drafted in the first 5-6 rounds, and that’s smart.  Why would you spend an early pick on someone you don’t feel comfortable playing every week, regardless of the matchup?  Still, there are some great defenses out there and if you’re looking for a solid flex play, you probably have a few options, so here’s a little something to make that decision easier.

The Bengals/Bears game starts things off with two of the best defenses in the league going head to head.  Although some teams cover the run better than the pass or vice versa, these two teams do it all pretty well so a low scoring game seems pretty likely.  This is bad news for Giovani Bernard, Alshon Jeffery, and Mohamed Sanu.  Let’s be honest, if you were thinking of playing Sanu already, you have bigger problems than that, but I figured I’d mention him anyway.  On the QB side of things, both Jay Cutler and Andy Dalton should probably sit on the bench as well, but with an ADP of QB15 and QB16, this should really only come into play in 2QB leagues.

The Packers/49ers game should be another defensive matchup, but luckily for Frank Gore owners, The Packers are a whole lot better against the pass than they are against the run.  Unfortunately, the same cannot be said for San Francisco so if you’re an Eddie Lacy owner, proceed with caution.  It sounds like he’ll be receiving the bulk of the carries so he’s still worth starting, but you should drop your expectations down from RB2 numbers to flex.  As for receivers, both James Jones and Anquan Boldin will likely see a decrease in their usual production so if you have other options, use them this week.

Keeping with likely flex options, Shane Vereen, Chris Ivory, Tavon Austin, Chris Givens, and Steve Smith are all in tough matchups this week so if you’re trying to decide between two guys and one of them is listed in this paragraph, it’s probably best to choose the other one.

Of course, there’s always a flip side to the coin and some flex options get to start the year in ideal situations for a strong performance.  Steven Jackson has an incredibly easy matchup against New Orleans as he gets a fresh start with a new team.  Ahmad Bradshaw is in the same situation in Indianapolis playing against a weak Oakland Raiders team.  Maurice Jones-Drew should also have a nice outing against Kansas City.  Further down the ADP list, Rashard Mendenhall and Isaac Redman will both be starting against weak defenses.

As for receivers, Miles Austin and DeAndre Hopkins may both be #2 receivers on the depth chart, but against relatively weak pass defenses, they should both see a healthy number of targets.  Of course, that also means Tony Romo and Matt Schaub are nice options at QB this week.

Need a few sleepers?  Look for Ryan Broyles and Chiefs tight end Anthony Fasano to get you through week 1 if you’re in a pinch.

Best of luck to everyone in 2013!

    I splurged on Megatron, which left me a thin at Flex. Best option: Vincent Brown or Bernard Pierce? I’m thinking Brown since SD will likely be in catch-up mode and Brown’s their #1.

      @All Good In The Hood: I agree, Brown gives you a lot more upside this week.

    Start Michael Floyd or Deandre Hopkins?

    • Loudon

      Loudon says:

      @Brody: I actually like Hopkins’ potential a bit more this week. They’re close, but I’d roll with Hopkins.

      • Chris says:

        @Loudon: Hopkins or Emmanuel Sanders?

          @Chris: I like Sanders against the Titans.

    Thanks! This is awesome.

    Question: I have pretty bleh WRs in my 14-team league (non PPR), so I’d love advice — should I start any of my bench guys over any of the guys now slotted as starters?

    Starters: Decker, Wallace, Jennings
    Bench: Britt, Hartline, Thompkins

    • Loudon

      Loudon says:
      (link)

      @CarryYoTeamOnHisBackDoe: I think you’re starting the right people. All of the people on your bench certainly have potential, but they also have a lower floor so I’d keep it exactly how you have it.

  4. Brown L says:

    Nice feature! It definitely confirms my misgivings about Ivory this week, and now that Manuel is the Week 1 starting QB for Buffalo, I’m thinking of starting Stevie Johnson at the flex instead. Right move?

    • Loudon

      Loudon says:
      (link)

      @Brown L: I’d definitely feel more comfortable with Stevie this week.

  5. Shake N Bacon says:

    Nice writeup Loudon. I’ll be following these posts every week.

    Would you rather have Fasano over Pettigrew for this week?

    • Loudon

      Loudon says:
      (link)

      @Shake N Bacon: Pettigrew is the safer choice because he’s in a system we’ve seen him play in before, but I really like the upside on Fasano this week. I’d probably still rank Pettigrew slightly higher until we see how Fasano fits into Reid’s system, but if you’re up for a gamble, he’s a great option.

      • Shake N Bacon says:
        (link)

        @Loudon: Hmm, gambling is fun. “Insert plug for Draft Kings here”

        I think I’ll stick with Pettigrew this first week. I’m curious to see how the Chiefs use Fasano this year though. I’ll definitely keep an eye on him.

        Thanks for your advice.

  6. Mikey says:
    (link)

    Don’t like Givens do you? Hmmm.

    Been flipping between Givens/Michael Floyd/Britt at the WR/TE flex this week. Thoughts?

    • Loudon

      Loudon says:
      (link)

      @Mikey: Britt has the best matchup of the three and with the Steelers covering the run fairly well, the Titans may be looking to air the ball out a bit more. That being said, I actually like Givens quite a bit, he’s just in a tough spot this week.

  7. Dave says:
    (link)

    Which one of Boldin, Tavon Austin, or Kenbrell Thompkins is best for week 1 as my WR3 in .5 PPR? I’m leaning Boldin but don’t know none of them are that appealing to me.

    Also Lacy already is my flex (have AP and Ridley) should I bench him at the flex in favor of Daryl Richardson its also .5 PPR. I could also put one of those receivers in the flex but I’d rather an RB.

    • Loudon

      Loudon says:
      (link)

      @Dave: Thompkins has the best matchup, but I think I would still go Boldin in this particular case, especially with the .5 PPR tacked on. As for your flex spot, I like Richardson more than Lacy this week, but this may be the only week I say that.

  8. Zeke says:
    (link)

    Nice breakdown. There are definitely some tough matchups this week. Would you start Redman over DeAngelo at Flex this week? I didn’t think I would be considering benching a 6th round pick in week 1, but Seattle’s D is scary. For WR3, I’m leaning toward Stevie Johnson over Mike Williams. Close one, but I think the Pats are going to give up some yardage in the air again this year. I imagine they will stack the box to stuff Spiller and make Manuel throw it. What do you think? Thanks!

    • Loudon

      Loudon says:
      (link)

      @Zeke: I would start Redman over Williams this week, yes. I also agree with you on starting Stevie over the other Williams on your team. Both of these are actually really close calls, but that’s what I would do if I was in your shoes.

    Start Austin or Britt? WR2 14tm non ppr? Thanks!

    I meant miles Austin

    • Loudon

      Loudon says:
      (link)

      @el guey: Miles Austin over Britt, absolutely. Tavon Austin over Britt would have been a more difficult decision, but I think I would have said Britt in that case.

    Hey Gents,

    Percy Harvin just tweeted that he is pushing to be back for week 7. I’d like to scoop him off the wire in my 12 team Non-PPR. Would you drop any of the following for him: Christine Michael, Andre Roberts, Knowshon Moreno, Justin Blackmon?

    Thanks in advance

    • Psychedelic says:
      (link)

      @B.J.: I would definitely drop knowshon Moreno for him. Denver backfield will probably be a blackhole for fantasy value out of the gate until someone emerges as a go to guy, and by the time that happens or if injuries strike you can always put in another bid to get Moreno. All those other guys have a lot more upside in my opinion. Good call on Harvin though I ended up drafting him right before my defense and kicker in one of my leagues.

    • Loudon

      Loudon says:
      (link)

      @B.J.: I know Psychedelic has already responded, but I’m gonna give you a different opinion and say I’d drop Andre Roberts. I should mention that no player can know how he’s going to feel 7 weeks out so I wouldn’t give much thought to this tweet, but if you feel like gambling, I feel like Roberts has the least upside of that list.

    Isaiah Pead…

    Not trusting Trent Richardson and already regret taking him. Just a feeling in the guy.

        @JDW: Not trusting Trent Richardson? He’s looking like a beast I guarantee there will be plenty of guys you won’t feel good about this season but Richardson isn’t guna be one of them.

        • JDW says:
          (link)

          @Psychedelic:

          Thanks Psych, I hope you’re right. What actually happened is I meant to take Spiller with my pick and casually *clicked* and *clicked* and Trent came off the board instead. My bad. Aloofness the cause. Yeah – I actually chose the wrong guy. :) But I was BUMMED at blowing my pick and missing the guy I intended. Maybe it’s a sign.

  13. Nick says:
    (link)

    Would you start Murray or Gore this week as your RB 2?

    • Psychedelic says:
      (link)

      @Nick: I would go with Gore this week unfortunately… I don’t think the Cowboys will be able to run much against the Giants, they usually always have a fairly beastly run D. And as much as I like the Packers this year they’re guna have to show that they can stop the run for me to believe in that defense again. And with Kaepernick dashing runs in the passing/option play it should open up some nice gains for Gore.

    • Loudon

      Loudon says:
      (link)

      @Nick: I’m with @Psychedelic on this one. Gore has the better upside this week and both of them have a pretty similar floor.

      • Nick says:
        (link)

        @Loudon:

        Great! Thanks for the help.

  14. Principle Blackman says:
    (link)

    In a PPR/Ret. Yardage league would you start Tavon Austin vs Arizona or Cordarrelle Patterson @ Detroit as your WR3 this week?

    • Psychedelic says:
      (link)

      @Principle Blackman: I think I would go with Patterson, he seems to be more comfortable right now and Detroit seems to always give up some long kick returns every week. I haven’t been real impressed with Austin so far he looks to be trying to do way too much instead of just going out and getting it done.

  15. Tim says:
    (link)

    Bernard,lacy ,or myles Austin for flex this week? Standard league

    • Loudon

      Loudon says:
      (link)

      @Tim: I think Miles Austin gives you the most upside. Lacy and Bernard will be lucky to get a TD this week, but they’ll at least guarantee you 5-7 points so I guess it depends how safe you want to play it. My pick would be Austin.

  16. Mike says:
    (link)

    Start Jordy Nelson vs SF or Bowe vs Jax in week1?

    I also own Randall Cobb who im starting so Im leaning towards starting Bowe. I dont want to rely on too much from GB vs SF.. what do you think?

    • Loudon

      Loudon says:
      (link)

      @Mike: I would definitely start Bowe in your situation.

  17. Mike says:
    (link)

    Deandre Hopkins,r randle,or Blackmon ROS?
    All were not drafted on on waivers
    Thanks!

    • Loudon

      Loudon says:
      (link)

      @Mike: I’d probably go with Blackmon assuming you aren’t dropping anyone major to get him.

    18 team league – went with rb depth and real thin on wr after dez
    which 2 would you go with hartline, edelman, q patton, streater

    • Loudon

      Loudon says:
      (link)

      @free: 18-team league? Now that’s impressive. Hartline and Patton would be my two choices.

  19. David says:
    (link)

    Williams, Austin, or Boldin, PPR

    • Loudon

      Loudon says:
      (link)

      @David: I’d definitely say Boldin here.

  20. Cool Hand Luke says:

    I have Lacey, bradshaw & Redmon. I need to start 2…Please help

    • Loudon

      Loudon says:
      (link)

      @Cool Hand Luke: Definitely Bradshaw. Lacy will struggle to get a TD this week, but he’s going to get more carries than Redman so I think Lacy is still the safer play there.

  21. Alex says:
    (link)

    Since you seem to dislike Ivory, and like Britt…

    Standard league, Ivory or Britt starting @ flex? Also have Pierre Thomas as an option, but I’m thinking Britt is tops.

    • Loudon

      Loudon says:
      (link)

      @Alex: I’d still rank Ivory above Thomas for sure. As for Ivory and Britt, that’s close. Even though the matchup is a tough one, I think Ivory is the safer pick to put up reasonable numbers, but Britt’s ceiling is higher. If I was in your scenario, I think I’d still go Ivory.

  22. PumpItUp says:
    (link)

    Deep league flex play…PPR…P. Thomas, Michael Floyd, Hartline.
    Also, would you drop Hartline and/or F. Davis for either B. Pierce or Broyles?

    • Loudon

      Loudon says:
      (link)

      @PumpItUp: I think I’d go Floyd over Thomas and Hartline. The PPR should help Floyd. As for dropping Hartline, if you have plenty of options at WR, dropping Hartline for Pierce has potential to pay off big depending on how this season goes.

    QB – Kaep
    RB TRich
    RB CJ2K
    WR Fitz
    WR Bowe
    Cincy D

    Here’s my two question spots….Olsen or Cook at TE week 1? Best flex option out of S. Vereen, Stevie Johnson, Montee Ball?

    .5 pt. ppr 12 teamer

    Thanks, brother!

    • Loudon

    • Loudon

      Loudon says:

      @MrMojoRisin: Those are some crazy rules. Although it would probably be a receiving TD if anything, I think I’d still go with Sproles this week.

    Nice article….what are your week 1 thoughts on: (10 team, .5 ppr)

    One of Rg3 vs Wilson

    One of Antonio Brown vs Nicks

    One At flex: the other of the two WR above or Hillman / Ball / Woodhead / Patton

    • Nightpandas says:
      (link)

      @Nightpandas: add Ballard to the mix for Flex

    • Loudon

      Loudon says:

      @Nightpandas: I like Wilson over RG3 this week, Brown over Nicks, and then Nicks at flex.

  27. Cankles says:
    (link)

    Love the update cleared up a few questions. In a .5 PPR would you start Cameron or Sudfeld at tight end? And the Cleveland D or pick up T Bay to stream against the Jets?

    • Loudon

      Loudon says:
      (link)

      @Cankles: I like Cameron over Sudfeld this week, but they’re both nice options. For defense, definitely Tampa Bay

    Shorts, givens, or Michael Floyd for week 1?

    • Loudon

    Bradshaw or Shorts at flex?

      @Keith: Bradshaw. It’s close, but I like Bradshaw’s chances this week.

      @barker: If Givens is still available in your league, he’d definitely be my choice over Randle. Cameron and Sudfeld are close on the TE side, but I think both could finish ahead of Finley this year believe it or not.

    My league is 12-team .5PPR. I have trade questions that kinda hinge on oneanother so I will try not to make this too confusing. If you can answer each that would be great.

    1) I was offered RGIII for Garcon straght-up. Based on the team I have and positions we play, should I take this deal?
    2) Should I trade one of my bench RB’s for Steve Smith? If so, in what order would you trade them?
    3) Would the answer to #1 change if I did trade one of my bench RB’s for Steve Smith?

    QB: Eli Manning
    RB: Forte
    WR: Dez Bryant
    WR: AJ Green
    RB/WR: S. Jax
    WR/TE: Garcon
    DST: Ravens
    K: Prater
    BN: G. Bernard
    BN: R. Mathews
    BN: D. Richardson
    BN: S. Vereen
    BN: M. Austin
    BN: J. Gordon
    BN: B. Hartline
    BN: A. Jeffrey

    • Loudon

      Loudon says:
      (link)

      @Ron: RGIII for Garcon seems fair given ADP, but if you could trade Eli for Garcon I’d like it even better. If you can trade the likes of Vereen for Smith, that’d be about right. You have enough more reliable talent at RB that you likely won’t ever need Vereen so you might as well get a solid plug-in option at WR.

  32. ryan says:

    Who to start at flex? Torrey Smith, James Jones, Ahmad Bradshaw, Ryan Mathews or Ben Tate? Is Ahmad Bradshaw starting?

    • Loudon

      Loudon says:
      (link)

      @ryan: Bradshaw should start, but I still like Torrey Smith more as the safe play with plenty of upside. Both he and Bradshaw will likely have TDs this week.

    Ok, so just did my final draft of the season, my big money pool.

    12 team, head to head, standard scoring, no flex.

    Geno’s Dirty Sanchez

    1. (7) Arian Foster (Hou – RB)
    2. (18) Maurice Jones-Drew (Jax – RB)
    3. (31) Randall Cobb (GB – WR)
    4. (42) Dwayne Bowe (KC – WR)
    5. (55) Pierre Garcon (Was – WR)
    6. (66) Rob Gronkowski (NE – TE)
    7. (79) Eli Manning (NYG – QB)
    8. (90) Chicago (Chi – DEF)
    9. (103) Matt Bryant (Atl – K)
    10. (114) DeAngelo Williams (Car – RB)
    11. (127) Rashard Mendenhall (Ari – RB)
    12. (138) Ben Tate (Hou – RB)
    13. (151) Cordarrelle Patterson (Min – WR)
    14. (162) Ed Dickson (Bal – TE)
    15. (175) Ryan Tannehill (Mia – QB)

    was AFK from Gronk to Deangelo Williams. Actually hate autodrafting so much. I didn’t think 3/4 picks could ruin a draft as badly as this.

    Was late picking up a QB (again), in my 3 leagues I’ve managed Eli, Vick, and RG3 as my QB1

    No playoffs in this league, 15 weeks. Was taking Gronk where I did too early?

    • Loudon

      Loudon says:
      (link)

      @Alex: I think you got Gronk at a great spot. Your team is already excellent, but if Gronk plays at even 75% for 12 games this season, you’ll likely be the team to beat. I can’t believe you were able to get Tate in the 12th as your handcuff. Don’t over think things, you have a great team.

  34. JoeBoo says:

    Mc Fadden or Bradshaw as flex?
    Nicks over Steve Smith at WR2?

    • Loudon

      Loudon says:

    F me! I waited on qb(so glad I did)in a 16 team keeper league. What to do week 1?

      @Gerry: I think Weeden is the safest choice, even without Gordon.

  36. Ian says:
    (link)

    I can start three RBs (0.5 PPR). One of those three spots will be Jamaal Charles, but who would you recommend this week for my RB2 and FLEX spots out of: DeMarco Murray, Montee Ball, and Shane Vereen? Thanks!

    • Loudon

      Loudon says:
      (link)

      @Ian: Murray for sure, then probably Vereen just because of the 0.5 PPR aspect.

  37. Rags says:
    (link)

    In a league that awards kick return yardage for D/ST as well as tackles for a loss (instead of just sacks). Ari vs StL or Ind vs Oak. With the return yardage bonus, is Ari good enough to hold on to?

    • Rags says:
      (link)

      @Rags: KC is also available.

    • Loudon

      Loudon says:
      (link)

      @Rags: The Colts seem like the obvious choice because they’re playing Oakland, but I have a good feeling about Arizona this week. Call me crazy, but that’s my pick. I apologize in advance if St. Louis goes nuts.

    would you start forte or gore in a non PPR this week ? there is a bonus for TD ‘s over 20 years

    • Loudon

      Loudon says:
      (link)

      @bob gum: Because of the bonus, I’d give Forte the edge. Gore isn’t scoring a TD over 20 yards this week.

    How is Vereen in a tough matchup? The Pats are going to put a whoopin on the Bills. Everyone is going to eat in that game.

    • Loudon

      @Richie: I agree, the Patriots are going to beat the Bills, but they won’t do it on the ground. The #2 RB on a team that will likely be throwing it down the field with ease? No thanks. Vereen will get MAYBE 5-6 points.

    So if Vereen and Lacy have tough match ups, who else do I use as my flex then? My other option is Mathews vs Hou D.

      @Mario: Of those three choices, Lacy’s still the best choice. Don’t expect the world from him this week, but at least your matchups can only improve going forward.

    16 team league. Non ppr

    Flex: Stevie Johnson or Tavon Austin

    Also I’m screwed at rb. I’m starting spoles. Should I start mark Ingram or knowshon Moreno? Not sure how many touches either will get but i gotta start someone

    Thanks for your time!

      @The Cutoff Man: I’d take Stevie over Tavon this week. As for RBs, after Sproles, Ingram would be the next guy I’d play even though they play for the same team.

      @steve:

      I have a similar question as Steve. Non PPR league need a flex choice between Miles Austin and Giovanni Bernard.

      Also to add TE to start? Cook or Cameron? Thanks!

        @Bill: Bernard at flex and Cameron at TE this week.

      @steve: I like Bernard SLIGHTLY more than Miles Austin this week. The other two would be the next tier down from there.

      @pooonhunter: 0.5PPR

      • Loudon

        Loudon says:

        @pooonhunter: Stevie Johnson and Thompkins are pretty close for me this week, but I think Johnson is the safer play, especially in 0.5 PPR

    1 PT PPR
    pick 2 this week (1 has to be a WR)
    m.williams/g.jennings/vereen/o.daniels. I’m thinking the 2 WR’s.

    In a PPR League. Need to decide on my Flex Position. Who would you start, Shane Vareen, Stevie Johnson, or Ahmad Bradshaw?

    • Loudon

      Loudon says:

      @Max: Because it’s PPR, I think I’d go with Stevie Johnson, but an argument could be made for Bradshaw as well because of his matchup.

  46. Faceless Man says:

    I have Vereen in my Flex, with TY Hilton, Golden Tate and Cordarelle Patterson on the bench. Who would you pick and why?

  47. Bill says:

    For rb 2 pick 1… Lacy, Vereen, Tate

    For flex pick 1… Lacy, Vereen, Tate, Woodhead, Michael Floyd, TY Hilton, Vincent Brown

      @Bill: it’s 1 pt ppr btw

      • Loudon

        Loudon says:
        (link)

        @Bill: Because of the PPR, Vereen is your best option at RB2. As for Flex, probably TY Hilton.

    Gore or Sproles in a ppr league?

    • Loudon

      Loudon says:

      @Viv Savage: I like Sproles just because of the PPR.
