The season is finally here and it is time to set that lineup.  Some of you were fully expecting to have Indianapolis Colts quarterback Andrew Luck all season. His shocking retirement has shocked the fantasy football community and I am sure forcing some people to look for new options. There are some of you out there that intend to stream the quarterback, tight end, and defense this year. This is a strategy used by many and I want to help you make the right lineup decisions.


Matthew Stafford – Detroit Lions @ Arizona Cardinals

Matthew Stafford of the Detroit Lions has been a top 10 fantasy football QB every year until last season. Everyone is down on him and with the bevy of talent at the position, he is going undrafted in most leagues. Stafford had a rough season last year and reportedly played with broken bones in his back. He should have a bounce-back season and without Patrick Peterson due to suspension, I love this matchup against the Arizona Cardinals.  Look for Stafford to be playable as he has the weapons and the ability to put up good fantasy production in Week 1.
