Sit/Start Week 1: Reviewing All Fantasy Relevant Players In Every Single Game

The QB List staff helps you make your sit/start decisions for every Week 1 game.

Welcome to the opening week of the 2020 NFL season! It didn’t look like we would make it here for a while, but the QB List staff is excited to be back with you for another year.

We’ve got an exciting opener on Thursday Night Football between the Houston Texans and the defending Super Bowl Champion Kansas City Chiefs, and the week wraps up with two Monday Night Football games for your viewing pleasure.

Join us as we go game by game, breaking down each matchup as we help you make sense of this crazy offseason while setting your lineups for Week 1. Look for us each Thursday on Reddit as well, where we answer every question thrown our way.

Best of luck in Week 1!

  • Bob Sacamano says:

    Won’t Conley be occupying that second WR spot on the Jags? At least to start?

    • Bryan Sweet says:

      Honestly, Bob, I can’t make heads or tails of who will be lining up outside versus in the slot for Jacksonville. I think Shenault ends up playing outside more than Conley but I expect all 3 to be on the field most of the time. I don’t think Conley is a candidate for starting this week even if he does start over Shenault. Thanks for the question!

      • Bob Sacamano says:

        Thanks. Makes sense. Shenault certainly seems like the better talent. I’ll be on the sidelines until one of them separate

  • Narwhal says:

    Mike Evans, DeVante Parker, or Deebo Samuel? All on the injury report lol

    • Erik Smith says:

      Might come down to kickoff and who’s healthiest. But if they are all borderline, I would go Evans, he just has the most upside. Parker against New England isn’t a fun matchup regardless of injury.

  • Daniel Kholodenko says:

    Start Ertz or Andrews in full ppr?

  • Kev says:

    Is Kerryon Johnson droppable for handcuffs or backup QB in 12T?

    • Frank Costanzo says:

      Yea, I think Kerryon is droppable now.

    • Bryan Sweet says:

      He’s not in an ideal situation, but I might hold for week 1 if you’ve got some guys with injuries who might not start or will be limited (Golladay, Evans, Miles, etc.). He might be a “Break Glass in Case of Emergency” player this week. If your lineup is solid top to bottom and a top-end handcuff is available (Mattison, Latavius, Pollard, Edmonds, Scott) or a guy like James Robinson then I’d swap Kerryon for one of them. A high-upside QB2 is less than ideal, but if you’re only carrying one it might not be a terrible idea.

  • Drew says:

    A.J. Brown, Courtland Sutton, Antonio Gibson – Start 2. Standard Scoring.

  • Roo says:

    What’s your pick on Diggs, White, or Crowder for PPR Flex spot?

  • TJ says:

    With Goladay doubtful, is Marvin Jones a must start? Over McLaurin, Gallup, and J. Brown

    • Bryan Sweet says:

      I like Jones but don’t know if “must-start” applies. Chicago still has a formidable defense and I think Hockenson gets a bigger bump than Jones with Golladay’s (likely) absence. If you have the bench space, Quintez Cephus might be a sneaky pickup. Beat writers are talking up Marvin Hall, but I think Cephus is the long-term WR3 for Detroit and should see some playing time in week 1.
