Fantasy Football Takeaways from Preseason Week 1
L.G. Patterson/Associated Press

Week 1 of the NFL preseason tends to be far more about the rookies than the veterans.

While the debuts of quarterbacks Johnny Manziel, Blake Bortles and Teddy Bridgewater steal the airtime for the talking heads on TV, we gush more as fantasy analysts over the debuts of:

  • Tennessee Titans running back Bishop Sankey
  • New Orleans Saints wide receiver Brandin Cooks
  • Carolina Panthers wide receiver Kelvin Benjamin
  • San Francisco 49ers running back Carlos Hyde
  • Kansas City Chiefs return specialist De'Anthony Thomas

We break down all the takeaways from the first full weekend of preseason action here, game by game and note by note.

You shouldn't overrate what you have seen from a collection of meaningless exhibition games for your early fantasy drafts, but you definitely have to like what you saw from many of the NFL's top rookies.
