Best and worst wide receiver matchups for fantasy football Week 1

By utilizing our play-by-play data, we’re now able to identify where each wide receiver and cornerback lines up on each play. By tracking matchups between the two positions, including potential shadow situations, we can offer the best projections, rankings and fantasy advice each week.

Below are the receivers with the best and worst Week 1 matchups, as well as the corresponding fantasy impact.

Marcus Peters wishes he could’ve had his own Rickey Henderson.

Seahawks coach Pete Carroll also supported Bennett when he spoke with reporters Wednesday.

“What happened with Michael is a classic illustration of the reality of inequalities that are demonstrated daily,” Carroll said. “May this incident inspire all of us to respond with compassion when inequalities are brought to light and allow us to have the courage to stand for change. We can do better than this.”

In a league where teams don’t play every other club each season, the schedule can determine who makes the playoffs. Here are the hardest (Eagles) and easiest (Patriots) slates, along with the 30 in between.

But late in his senior season, he realized that NFL scouts in town to watch a teammate would sprint over to the special teams area whenever he was punting. He was on the radar, got an agent and an invitation to the postseason NFLPA Bowl, and he thought he had a shot.

Giants cornerback Eli Apple left Saturday’s game with an ankle injury and did not return.

After the Raiders gave Derek Carr a five-year, $125 million contract in June and the Lions handed Matthew Stafford a five-year contract extension worth a reported $135 million, Rodgers’ new contract would certainly exceed those dollar amounts.

Rodgers’ current contract is a five-year, $110 million deal he signed in 2013. That keeps him under contract through the 2019 season. He’s won two NFL MVP awards and led the Packers to a Super Bowl championship in 2010. Should he win another Super Bowl between now and 2019, he might just end up as the NFL’s first $200 million player.

Colts starting corner Vontae Davis left the team’s game against the Steelers with a groin injury.

Raiders cornerback David Amerson suffered a blow to his head on a tackle, and fullback Jamize Olawale pulled up lame after a run.

What I hope to see from this is a shift in the conversation to Seth’s black teammates, who realistically have to carry that burden all the time. I am discouraged by this idea that acknowledging and fighting against racism is a distraction that must be stored away in order to be a good football player. I wholeheartedly reject that narrative.

Black players in the NFL cannot just turn their concern on and off in order to be able to focus more on football. White players shouldn’t, either, Harris DeValve added. Racism is a day-to-day reality, and I hope that, instead of holding Seth up on a pedestal, the response will be to do what he did: listen to the voices of the black people in your life, and choose to support them as they seek to make their voices heard.

Indianapolis has invested heavily in its offensive line in recent drafts

Womens D.J. Fluker Jersey It was tough to see Edelman being carted off the field in Friday night’s third preseason game in Detroit. But regardless of the extent of the injury, it was a blip of a blemish for the reigning champs.

Before Edelman went down on non-contact, the Patriots did see their diminutive dashing pass-catching machine catch all three of his targets for 52 yards as they lit up the Lions early. The production accounted for a good chunk of quarterback Tom Brady’s stellar tuneup first quarter (10-of-11, 157 yards, 2 TDs, perfect 158.3 passer rating).

This position might not the biggest need for Minnesota, and the Vikings might not be the best fit Jefferson. But he’s too talented to slip far past the top 20 picks. Jefferson has a lot to prove this year (and stay healthy), but NFL teams are excited by what 2017 can bring.

Indianapolis has invested heavily in its offensive line in recent drafts, but new GM Chris Ballard will likely only continue that trend in 2018. Price is our top-rated interior lineman and should garner first-round grades by the end of the season.

A lot of Burfict’s controversial plays have been against Pittsburgh, but there also was his apparent ankle-twist against Newton in 2015, the shot later that season against Ravens tight end Maxx Williams (who was merely running a decoy route) and a low hit against New England’s Martellus Bennett when Bennett was not the intended receiver last season. There are multiple YouTube videos dedicated to Burfict’s art.

Hill should be a nice fit alongside first-round pick De’Aaron Fox

The 16 best teams in Europe — all of whom also play in domestic leagues like the Spanish ACB, Greek Basket League, and France’s Pro A — feature most of the best players in the world not in the NBA. Those stars will have to decide in November and February whether to suit up for the team that pays their salaries or their national teams.

The 2018 quarterback class features five passers with first-round expectations, including Lamar Jackson, who is not included in this mock draft. Along with the quarterbacks, two running backs look to follow in the shoes of Ezekiel Elliott and Leonard Fournette as top-four draft picks.

We used Bovada’s over/under win totals to create the 2018 NFL Draft order, and while we might disagree on some projections, we do agree that the Jets are the leading contenders for the first overall pick.

Matthew Stafford also had a solid night, going 8 for 10 for 84 yards and a touchdown in a win over the Jets. Even second-year Rams quarterback Jared Goff had a nice night, going 16 of 20 for 160 yards and a 23-yard touchdown pass to rookie Cooper Kupp against the Raiders.

Then there were the Jets quarterbacks, who were unimpressive in the 16-6 loss. Christian Hackenberg got the start and fumbled on New York’s third play and finished just 2 of 6 for 14 yards. Bryce Petty then entered and was 15 of 24 for 160 yards and an interception.

The Steelers and Ravens figure to reinforce the division’s reputation as one of the NFL’s most competitive. The Bengals hope to crash their rivals’ playoff-hopeful party and bounce back from a six-win season after four prior years of double-digit wins. The Browns, of course, just hope to win more than one game. (Complete AFC North predictions)
