With Week 1 in the books, some players stepped up and some players laid a complete goose egg for your fantasy team. Sure, it’s not time to panic, but there is some reason for alarm after starting 0-1. Below are some choices to start or sit based on matchups.

In Week 1, he gets a matchup against the Jacksonville Jaguars who gave up an average of 19 fantasy points to quarterbacks in 2013. If Foles can get the ball down the field early and often, then this game will be a laugher. Continue reading Fantasy Football Start ‘Em, Sit ‘Em: Week 1 »
