OH MY ^%(#$%!!! FOOTBALL IS BACK!!! Yes, that’s right, fellow Razzballians, the NFL is, indeed, BACK. Which means Fantasy Football is back! Which means my weekly rankings are BACK! And these are Week 1 NFL rankings you’ll want to pay attention to. They’re derived from my projection system, named CRAIG, after the legendary 49ers running back Roger Craig, and last year FantasyPros ranked me as the 5th-most-accurate ranker of Running Backs in their system! Poetic, isn’t it?!
So, what’s on the slate for this week? I’m so friggin’ excited I can barely sit still. Tonight, we get the whole thing started with the Kansas City Chiefs and the Detroit Lions… and of course, in perfect The Sweat Starts Early fashion, we have a bona fide, honest-to-gods, real-life Game Time Decision on our hands! Travis Kelce hyperextended his knee in practice this week and has been assigned the ever-helpful “questionable” status to play in tonight’s game. Will he play? Will he sit? If he plays, will he be Travis Kelce?
That all remains to be seen, but in the meantime, on to the Week 1 NFL rankings!
