Fantasy Players for week 1

Each week I, Matt Koontz, will be posting an article I call my 5/5/5. I will be posting 5 must players, 5 bust/avoid players, 5 sleepers for that particular week in fantasy football.

My 5 Musts:

  1. TY Hilton- WR/Colts vs Jags: who do the Jags have to slow him down?
  2. Carson Wentz- QB/Eagles vs Washington: They don’t have the secondary to stop him.
  3. Patrick Mahomes- QB/Chiefs vs Texans: I don’t trust the Texans secondary at all.
  4. Christian McCaffery- RB/Panthers vs Raiders: McCaffery could run for 80 and add 80 in the passing game. Big week for him.
  5. Keenan Allen- WR/Chargers: The Bengals corners are going to be roasted by Keenan Allen.

My 5 players to avoid:

  1. Baker Mayfield- QB/Browns vs Ravens: Calias Campbell plus the Ravens secondary. Bad day for Baker on the way.
  2. Alvin Kamara- RB/Saints vs Bucs: The Bucs run defense is stellar. Should be a slow start to 2020 for Kamara.
  3. Amari Cooper- WR/Cowboys vs Rams: Amari is bad on the road plus Jalen Ramsey will shut him down.
  4. Daniel Jones- QB/Giants vs Steelers: The Steelers defense is too elite for any of the Giants subpar WRS to get open.
  5. Kyler Murray- QB/Cardinals vs 49ers: The 49ers defense and pass rush will eat Kyler alive.

My 5 Sleepers:

  1. Ben Roethlisberger- QB/Steelers vs. Giants: The Giants have a bad secondary and Ben will exploit it, especially with no pass rush.
  2. Marquez Valdes-Scantling- WR/Packers vs. Vikings: The Vikings secondary is going to be weak and Rodgers likes MVZ entering this season.
  3. Michael Pittman Jr- WR/Colts vs Jaguars. With no secondary and a great QB Pittman should have a great rookie debut for the Colts.
  4. Bryan Edwards- WR/Raiders: Assuming Donte Jackson is covering Ruggs, Edwards will be open often.
  5. Will Fuller V- WR/Texans vs Chiefs. I think the chiefs secondary is weaker than people realize, if Fuller is healthy he could have a great game.
