Finally, it’s football season! And starting today, Jordan Goethe of Sportsfan 1330 will give his rankings of players for all you fantasy football fans.

QUARTERBACK

1) Aaron Rodgers vs Chi
2) Tom Brady vs Hou
3) Drew Brees vs TB
4) Cam Newton vs Dal
5) Mathew Stafford vs NYJ
6) Deshaun Watson vs NE
7) Phillip Rivers vs KC
8) Andrew Luck vs Cin
9) Russell Wilson vs Den
10) Ben Roethlisberger vs Cle
11) Kirk Cousins vs SF
12) Jared Goff vs Oak
13) Andy Dalton vs Ind
14) Alex Smith vs Ari
15) Dak Prescott vs Car
16) Jimmy Garoppolo vs Min
17) Marcus Mariota vs Mia
18) Tyrod Taylor vs Pit
19) Patrick Mahomes vs LAC
20) Blake Bortles vs NYG

— Phillip Rivers is a good play this week vs Chiefs, Pro Bowl CB Marcus Peters is gone, and now that KC secondary is looking a little weak.

— If RB Le’Veon Bell cannot play this week vs Browns, QB Ben Roethlisberger might be forced to throw a lot more than normal which is a good sign for fantasy owners.

— Pump the brakes on Jimmy Garoppolo, especially with a very tough matchup against a potent Vikings defense. There are better options this week.

— QB Andy Dalton will be a good streaming option vs a bad defensive team in the Colts.

RUNNING BACKS
1) Todd Gurley vs Oak
2) Kareem Hunt vs LAC
3) David Johnson vs WSH
4) Alvin Kamara vs TB
5) Ezekiel Elliott vs Car
6) Christian McCaffrey vs Dal
7) Leonard Fournette vs NYG
8) Melvin Gordon vs KC
9) Joe Mixon vs IND
10) Saquon Barkley vs Jax
11) Dalvin Cook vs SF
12) LeSean McCoy vs Bal
13) Jordan Howard vs GB
14) Alex Collins vs Buf
15) Royce Freeman vs Sea
16) James Connor vs Cle
17) Kenyan Drake vs Ten
18) Derrick Henry vs Mia
19) Dion Lewis vs Mia
20) Jamaal Williams vs Chi
21) Peyton Barber vs No
22) Lamar Miller vs NE
23) Chris Thompson vs Ari
24) Duke Johnson Jr. vs Pit
25) Chris Carson vs Den
26) Rex Burkhead vs Hou
27) Alfred Morris vs Min
28) Marshawn Lynch vs LAR

29) Bilal Powell vs Det
30) Matt Breida vs Min
31) Adrian Peterson vs Ari
32) Carlos Hyde vs Pit
33) Isaiah Crowell vs Det
34) Jordan Wilkins vs Cin
35) Tarik Cohen vs GB
36) James White vs Hou
37) Rashad Penny vs Den
38) Kerryon Johnson vs NYJ
39) Giovanni Bernard vs Ind
40) Jaylen Samuels vs Cle

— Sure you’re going to start Kareem Hunt, especially when he’s playing the Chargers; he racked up 64 total PPR points last year vs San Diego!

— Joe Mixon owners are waiting for that one breakout game, and there cannot be a better matchup then his Week 1 game vs a terrible Colts defense.

–The 49ers coaching staff loves backup RB Matt Breida, and with RB Jerrick McKinnon out for the season, look for Breida to get a few more touches then Alfred Morris.

WIDE RECEIVER

1) Antonio Brown vs Cle
2) Michael Thomas vs TB
3) DeAndre Hopkins vs NE
4) AJ Green vs Ind
5) Keenan Allen vs KC
6) Devante Adams vs Chi
7) Larry Fitzgerald vs Wsh
8) Odell Beckham Jr. vs Jax
9) TY Hilton vs Cin

10) Adam Thielen vs SF
11) Tyreek Hill vs LAC
12) Marvin Jones vs NYJ
13) Jarvis Landry vs Pit
14) Demaryius Thomas vs Sea
15) Stefon Diggs vs SF
16) Mike Evans vs NO
17) Golden Tate vs NYJ
18) Doug Baldwin vs Den
19) Ju-Ju Smith-Shuster vs Cle
20) Amari Cooper vs LAR
21) Chris Hogan vs Hou
22) Allen Robinson vs GB
23) Brandin Cooks vs Oak
24) Michael Crabtree vs Buf
25) Cooper Kupp vs Oak
26) Marquise Goodwin vs Min
27) Robby Anderson vs Det
28) Devin Funchess vs Dal
29) Robert Woods vs Oak
30) Josh Gordon vs Pit
31) Kenny Stills vs Ten
32) Emmanuel Sanders vs Sea
33) Keelan Cole vs NYG
34) Pierre Garcon vs Min
35) Corey Davis vs Mia
36) Jamison Crowder vs Ari
37) Sammy Watkins vs LAC
38) Will Fuller vs NE
39) Michael Gallup vs Car
40) Randall Cobb vs Chi

— Saints CB Marshon Lattimore locked down WR Mike Evans last season. With the Bucs using their backup QB Ryan Fitzpatrick this time, Evans owners should be cautious with him.

— I love Kenny Stills’ upside this year. Former Dolphins WR Jarvis Landry is gone and all his targets from the last few seasons are up for grabs.

— Ju Ju Smith -Schuster is a great play vs a weak Browns secondary, especially with Le’Veon
Bell not playing. That means Ju Ju could be seeing a few more targets.

— Demaryius Thomas also has favorable matchup vs a new young secondary in Seattle.

TIGHT ENDS

1) Rob Gronkowski vs Hou
2) Travis Kelce vs LAC
3) Greg Olsen vs Dal
4) Kyle Rudolph vs SF
5) Jimmy Graham vs Chi
6) Trey Burton vs GB
7) Delanie Walker vs Mia
8) Evan Engram vs Jax
9) Jack Doyle vs Cin
10) Jordan Reed vs Ari
11) Cameron Brate vs NO
12) David Njoku vs Pit
13) Antonio Gates vs KC
14) Charles Clay vs Bal
15) George Kittle vs Min
16) Tyler Eifert vs Ind
17) Benjamin Watson vs TB
18) Jared Cook vs LAR
19) Mike Gesicki vs Ten
20) Austin Seferian-Jenkins

— QB Kirk Cousins loves to throw to his TEs and Kyle Rudolph is a better, healthier upgrade over Jordan Reed.

— The Bears have yet to find a way to stop Jimmy Graham, and I look for that to continue Sunday night vs the Packers.

— Cameron Brate is a guy you should keep your eye on in deeper leagues. He’s a big red-zone target.

DEFENSE/SPECIAL TEAMS
1) Ravens vs Buf
2) Jaguars vs NYG
3) Saints vs TB
4) Vikings vs SF
5) Rams vs Oak
6) Steelers vs Cle
7) Lions vs NYJ
8) Broncos vs Sea
9) Chargers vs KC
10) Titans vs Mia
11) Panthers vs Dal
12) Redskins vs Ari
13) Patriots vs Hou
14) Bengals vs Ind
15) Bills vs Ravens

— I love the Saints and Steelers matchups vs struggling offensive teams.

— If you’re in a deeper league and looking for a nice streaming option, maybe check out the Redskins vs Arizona.

2) Stephen Gostkowski vs Hou

3) Greg Zuerlein vs Oak
4) Robbie Gould vs Min
5) Will Lutz vs TB
