Not a bad way to start off the season. We get to kick things off with the best secondary in football against one of the best aerial attacks.

In 2013 Sherman shadowed top receivers exactly zero times.

    Love the take on Keenan. My toughest decision comes down to Keenan v. Roddy in a PPR. Roddy was quiet in both matchups v. Saints last year. Who you rolling with?

    This is really a great article and why I joined PFF Fantasy. Everyone is expecting Allen to regress this year and I just don’t see it. The guy is going to be a Top 10 WR this year. He only slipped in the draft because he ran a slow 40 on his pro day because of a knee injury. The Chargers got a steal in the 3rd round. I was very impressed with Allens game last year. Glad to have him on my team..
