Fabiano's Fantasy Focus: 2017 Week 1, Volume I

Fabiano's Fantasy Focus: 2017 Week 1, Volume I Fabiano's Fantasy Focus: 2017 Week 1, Volume I

He did have some weight issues this off-season, but he is back in shape and easily Cam Newton's top wide receiver target. To have gotten Cam Newton (Carolina Panthers quarterback) in an auto-draft pick either says something about my luck, or the league that I'm playing in and I haven't decided which. This is not a recent trend. It happened with Kurt Warner.

Sure, the Jaguars have Allen Robinson and Allen Hurns at the wide receiver positions, but the quarterback situation leaves a lot to be desired. "Matt Ryan and everything that right with that season in 2016...it's very likely not going to happen again".

Check out the most popular waiver wire pickups this week across thousands of MFL leagues.

I like to open up this page on a tab on Google Chrome, then just check it once or twice every couple hours to see what the most important news happened since the last time you checked. I'll do my best to erase that disaster from my brain in order to focus on this week. He's got the Saints this week.

POTENTIAL $$$: Bilal Powell, NYJ - I'm not often going to talk up Jets in this column, but this is a good matchup for Powell.

If you snagged the dynamic Stanford running back turned Carolina Panther in your fantasy draft, you'll have a ripe opportunity to deploy him this Sunday. Frank Gore is 34 years old with 3,105 carries in a league where most running backs fall off a cliff on average at 27 years old and/or 1800+ carries. I think you could have four or five finish in the Top 20 in fantasy points at that position. I took the Los Angeles Charger (wow, does that feel weird not typing "San Diego" there) in the second round of my fantasy draft a year ago and proceeded to use him for two and a half quarters before he tore his ACL in the opening game of the season. Leonard Fournette. Christian McCaffery who projects to be a PPR super star.

The 2017 fantasy season has been dubbed as "the year of the receiver".

Money is also what draws people to play fantasy football as large prizes are frequently up for grabs.

Another waiver question: Jacquizz Rodgers or Rex Burkhead? This year the 49ers have a new defensive coordinator in Robert Saleh to go along with new head coach Kyle Shanahan. One tight end sleeper that will be available in the late rounds is Julius Thomas of the Miami Dolphins. He's that player in your opponent's starting lineup that doesn't scare you, until he drops 50 rushing yards and 50 receiving yards, with seven receptions and a touchdown. "Cardinals' fans will like this one".

Avid fantasy fanatics best advice this year is to try and grab an elite receiver in the first round and try to build a team around him.

Ingram's not someone I would have recommended drafting due to the fact that the Saints are always finding backs to compete with him for touches. Second is the Patriots offense is able to score often, meaning Kansas City may be forced to abandon the kicking game and go for touchdowns. "You're going to get 70 catches".
