After countless hours researching, grinding the tape and absorbing all the great information from PFF’s fantasy football draft guide, you’ve finally got your fantasy squad set for the season. And with Week 1 upcoming, it's time to put your roster to the test.
To help with the decision-making process of setting your lineup, consider my Week 1 fantasy football rankings with additional analysis broken down by position.
Remember, just because you drafted Player “X” in Round 4 versus Player “Y” in Round 7 doesn’t mean the higher drafted player starts because drafting players is based on their season-long outlooks — not just their Week 1 matchup. So remain fluid and evaluate your team solely based on Week 1, as it will give you the best chance to start the season with a 1-0 record.

2021 Week 1 QB Fantasy Football Rankings
|3||Patrick Mahomes II|
In this world, nothing can be certain but death, taxes and Jackson dominating during kickoff weekend. The Ravens quarterback has averaged over 30 points per game in his first game over the past two seasons, and he’s primed to continue his high-end fantasy production streak against the Las Vegas Raiders on Monday Night Football.
The Raiders finished 29th in PFF coverage grade over the past two seasons and enter 2021 with PFF’s 29th-ranked secondary.
Without seeing much preseason action, it’s hard to project how the new Eagles offense will look under Nick Sirianni, but one concept is for certain — Philadelphia is going to play fast, which will help Hurts rack up fantasy points. During the preseason, the Eagles’ average play clock time remaining (12.8 seconds) ranked first.
This QB was a top-8 #FantasyFootball option with just RUSHING alone.
