Fantasy football season is officially upon us! Time to look at which players to start and which players to sit as we approach opening day for most teams in the NFL.

It’s the most wonderful time of the year! Fantasy football is back, and with that, so is the stress of figuring who to start and who to sit for each week in the NFL. This will be a weekly post that KC Kingdom does where we give you five players to start and five players to sit for this week.

It’s worth noting that we won’t be saying to start guys like Aaron Rodgers or Tom Brady, unless it’s our Thursday night edition where good starts are harder to find sometimes. These players are going to be guys that are on your roster, but you’re not sure if they’re better than another player for the week or not.

Most of these early season “Start/Sit” editions will be based on speculation since we don’t know a whole lot about these teams yet, but I compiled information from fantasy football experts and have put together a nice list of “Start/Sit” players for the first week of the NFL season!

How this will work is I’ll give the five best options to start with one coming from each spot in fantasy. There will be one quarterback, one running back, one wide receiver, one tight end, and one defense/special teams included in each section.

Let’s get to it with the first guy to have on your starting lineup this weekend!
