Fantasy football cheat sheet: Week 1
(Each week, the PFF Fantasy cheat sheet will have all the relevant fantasy content for the week in one place for you to keep track and review as needed as you prepare for that week in fantasy football.)
In an email conversation with our Director of Fantasy Jeff Ratcliffe Wednesday, we both marveled at how quickly the season has come upon us. It feels like it was yesterday we started our first fantasy football mock draft — the day after the Super Bowl — with Hunter Henry as a preferred up-and-comer, Rex Burkhead as a face-in-the-crowd kind of guy, and no idea who would be the Bills quarterback for the majority of 2018.
Now, the season is starting. We’re mourning the loss of Henry, Burkhead is a hot commodity, and the Bills … well, some things don’t change.
But no matter what, Week 1 is upon us. And with it comes our weekly mass of rankings, suggestions, and advice to maximize your fantasy productivity. This is our weekly cheat sheet, keeping everything we do over the week in one place so you can get at it quickly. Check below, and revisit it all week as more gets added.
