Drafts are done. The regular season is here and now that you’ve finalized your roster, it’s time to put the right players forward and start the season fast. Seasoned fantasy players know about the studs and chalky plays so at Bruno Boys we try to help wade through the matchups on those tougher decisions, or point out when there’s a great matchup that you should go all-in on. That said, the early part of the season can be a tough one since the preseason shows so little to go on. Still, we feel very strong about these recommendations and you should use them to help guide you to your starting lineup.
Here are your Week 1 Fantasy Football Team Defenses to Start.
Philadelphia Eagles vs. Washington Redskins
This NFC East rival game may not be a pretty one to watch to start the season as the Redskins’ offense is a mess. The receivers are full of inexperience, Derrius Guice is coming off a torn ACL and is splitting carries (for now) with Adrian Peterson and Case Keenum is (again for now) the starting quarterback. Worse yet, tackle Trent Williams is still holding out. As for the Eagles, they have some of their most important defensive players using Week 1 as their preseason as they are coming off of major injuries and have been babied through the preseason. Fletcher Cox, Ronald Darby and Nigel Bradham are all expected to play and should have their way with this green offense.
