Week 1 QB Rankings and Streaming Options

QB rankings and streaming advice for Week 1 of the 2018 fantasy football season. We finally made it through the offseason and returned to the fun and games of fantasy football. While we were away, Tyrod Taylor became a Brown, Case Keenum became a Bronco, Kirk Cousins became a Viking, and Aaron Rodgers became the highest paid anyone ever in football. Last year, I provided the top streaming options in one- and two-QB leagues. This year, I’m changing things up a bit to provide more value regardless of where we are in the season as it relates to the top quarterbacks of each week. I’ll be referencing each starting quarterback with weekly QB rankings (because you can never have enough rankings) based on a combination of Game Level Similarity Projections (GLSP) rankings, matchups, and quarterback success in fantasy this season (or for this week, last season). I’ll also call out a few headlines — including my TwoQB pick of the week, my favorite streamer, and a “bounceback candidate” who is coming off a bad fantasy week but still worthy of a start. Similar to last year, I’ll be sure to recap how I did each week with these headliners and any complete miss in the rankings (here’s to hoping those are few and far between). And with that, here are your Week 1 QB Rankings to start the 2018 season (!!).1
