Consensus Week 1 Rankings September 4, 2013  |  Chet


Welcome fake footballers to week one of the fake football season. We’ve all waited impatiently and now it is knocking on our door. The 2013 season will go exactly the opposite of the way we think it will, which is pretty awesome because good gravy it would be boring otherwise. Below you’ll see our Week 1 Rankings. I know mine are still in flux as I study the matchups so come back for more the closer we get to kickoff.

    Standard 0PPR, who do I start at Flex: Mike Williams or Zach Sudfeld? I have V-Jax at WR1, Gonzalez at TE1. Thanks!

  2. Hal says:

    need help with my RB2 in PPR: McFadden, DWilly, ABradshaw, or Daryl Richardson? Thanks

  3. bg says:

    Need 2 (non PPR): Lacy, Givens, Hilton, Thompkins

  4. Steve C says:

    I’ve checked the QB Ranks I have Vick or Eli…I LIKE Vick BUT does Eli have a REAL shootout w/Cowboys??? Who would YOU start this week ? Thanx (as Always)

  5. Ed says:

    Hey guys. Having trouble with my Flex spot and TE decisions.
    Non-ppr. Pick one. Colston, Antonio Brown, Lamar Miller, D. Richardson, or Vereen. I have D. Thomas (already played him) and Larry Fitzgerald at WR and T. Richardson & McCoy at RB.
    And TE: Sudfeld, Cameron, or Bennett. Thanks. Love this site!

    • Chet says:

      Hi Ed, Lots of good choices there. I like Brown and Richardson the most of those, but in non-PPR I would go with Richardson.

  6. Goldfinger says:

    Coby Fleener or Dwayne Allen? PPR 0.5

  7. trick dad says:

    non-ppr, start djax or lacy at flex?

  8. Jerri says:

    Been offerend Dez for B. Marshall in a PPR – seems like a wash, but would you pull the trigger? Does that fact that Romo is my QB make a difference?

  9. Eric says:

    No David Wlson love vs Cowboys banged up D line?

  11. Marc says:

    What up Chet! Here we go again! Q:12 team, 1 qb, 1qb flex league, have bradford as my qb3. Got Ivory and Bryce Brown on my bench, as well as blackmon and gordon. Drop any for T Pryor?

  12. Clayton says:

    Who should I start in my 2nd WR spot? Torrey Smith against a broken down Broncos secondary or Dwayne Bowe since Andy Reid will be pass happy and Jags secondary is lacking??

    • Chet says:

      I like both quite a bit. I’m going with Bowe based on volume of targets I expect for him. Smith could easily hit a couple big TDs, but he’s a little riskier without as many targets.

  13. Ghost says:

    better bench stash right now? Wheaton or Harvin? Should we trust Harvin and his week 7 tweet? I have the bench spots to afford it

  14. Jennifer Torres says:

    PPR -Shorts or Vereen for my flex?

  15. Leon says:

    Someone dropped Josh Gordon to the waiver wire…easy choice to blow top waiver claim on?

  16. Scott says:

    Dynasty .5 PPr Trade: I was offered RG3 & fDavis for RyMat & Unicorn. Already have Kap, RegBush, Lacy & LeVeon. Would you do it?

  17. Edward says:

    Vereen or Givens in a PPR flex spot?

  18. Jeff says:

    Montee Ball, Pierre Thomas, or Alshon Jeffery for Flex? I’m really starting to get worried about Montee’s touches.

    • Chet says:

      Yeah, he’s scary but so are PT and Jeffery. I’d say it’s between Ball and Jeffery. I think Jeffery is a little safer while Ball has more upside.

  19. phil says:

    and…
    McFadden or Miller @ RB2?

  20. Trick dad says:

    Week 1 flex: start Decker, Mathews, or Mendenhall?
    Thanks!

  21. phil says:

    Lacy or Vereen @ flex, std scoring?

  22. arman sustal says:

    First time playing with a flex. Who do you like between: Lacy, Wallace, and Thompkins? btw it’s a ppr league.

    • Chet says:

      Tough call. Lacy is a little safer because we know he’ll get carries, but in PPR I’d take the risk on the rookie Thompkins.

  23. Jason says:

    Chat – thanks for the rankings. Sproles or Decker for flex in 1pt PPR?

  24. herschel says:

    @Chet: PPR, who do you like for my flex?

    matthews vs hou
    hilton vs oak
    thompkins @ buf
    s johnson vs ne

    thanks and good luck this season.
