Fantasy Football 2012: Cautionary Week 1 Fantasy Starters

We have done it! We have endured an extremely long offseason full of injuries and arrests and have finally made it to the start of the NFL season. Our fantasy teams are drafted and are ready to roll. The bickering and arguing that one fantasy team is better than the rest has finally ceased, and we are now ready to prove it on the field. It is officially time to start figuring out who your Week 1 starters are. With the Giants-Cowboys game kicking off the NFL season tonight in New Jersey, you are officially on the clock.

So who should you start Week 1? Well there are a few guys I have predicted to have poor showings their opening game, so you might want to keep them on your bench. 

Now before you come firing back to me next week saying, “Hey Danny, thanks for making me start John Skelton over Peyton Manning this week. You cost me Game 1, and I will never forgive you for this,” apply these predictions with caution. This is your warning and my insurance. 

I am not saying that every one of these players will have horrible games and that you should pick up players who do not deserve to be on fantasy rosters to replace them. This is just a list of players who are playing tough defenses or have other extenuating circumstances that may cause them to not perform at the level they are known to or have the ability to play at.
