It’s Week 1. I have to assume that you like the team you drafted, and you don’t have enough evidence to give up on your sleepers yet.
So when it comes to setting your lineup, don’t make it complicated.
Start your studs. You have no reason to doubt them yet. Even if they have a tougher-than-most matchup, you drafted them because they can outplay expectations, right?
If you have an extremely juicy matchup…consider it…for your flex spot or your WR3. But your starting QB, RB1, RB2, and at least your top WR1 should all be worth starting this week to kickoff the 2011 NFL season.
It’s not until Week 2 that we can begin to freak out on studs who have not lived up to expectations or face a defense that’s improved over the offseason. That’s when we can worry. Can’t wait.
For now, just relax. FOOTBALL’S BACK, BABY!
