Fantasy Start or Sit NFL Week 1: WRs

The NFL season has finally arrived, here’s the Sports Talk Line Fantasy Start or Sit for WRs in Week 1! We take a look at the data behind each matchup as well as injuries, new signings, and our staff’s gut feelings. Please enjoy and remember to visit the Sports Talk Line Fantasy rankings tools each week to give your team the winning edge in your fantasy league!


Davante Adams – Raiders

Yes, We get it that Adams no longer has Aaron Rodgers throwing the rock to him. He does have Carr however who is another QB that has the gunslinger mentality and those guys love A-Type personality receivers. Adams is the guy and pretty much start/sit proof. Don’t be fooled by the naysayers. Start this stud.

A.J. Brown – Eagles

Philly is where receivers go to die. Not so fast. Any receiver looks better keying off a study run game and that is exactly the situation in the city of brotherly love. Brown won’t miss his southern digs as he and Hurt start to feel the vibes.

D.K. Metcalf – Seahawks

Russell Wilson may be gone, but he didn’t take the talent and drive that is housed in this freakishly athletic WR. Does it matter who is throwing the rock when your wingspan covers that much yardage? Not really. Start the man.


Tyreek Hill – Dolphins

Unlike Adams Hill didn’t get a gunslinger QB who can toss the pigskin a country mile as his new signal caller. Instead, he has a guy who throws a suspect deep ball that has too much hang time as it comes up short. Hill is going to have some big plays. They aren’t going to come vs a Bill Belichick defense in week 1.

Brandin Cooks – Texans

There is no doubting two things. First, Brandin Cooks has world-class speed. Second, the Texans are a hot mess. Until we find out what is going to be happening with the offensive line in Houston you are really rolling the dice to put them in your starting lineup. Sit Cooks.

Marquise Brown – Cardinals

The Chiefs are looking at getting back to the Super Bowl this season. The Cardinals are trying to forget an offseason full of 3rd-grader antics from both their franchise QB and the front office. Until that gets worked out all AZ talent is suspect. Sit ’em!
