Fantasy Football Week 1 Predictions
John Bazemore/Associated Press

It is all over but the shouting. Even if the NFL season is just about to begin Thursday night, the fantasy drafts are complete and it is time to see the fruits of your preseason labor.

Sure, you can tweak things as you go, but your team is in place and we merely wait for everything to develop—or unravel?

Bleacher Report presents its (mostly bold) fantasy football Week 1 predictions in this slideshow, including MVPs, breakouts, busts, bounce-backs and top plays by position based on matchups. We even finish up with some deep waiver-wire options that might not have been considered by your fantasy brethren.

We try to dig past the obvious mentions here, even if fantasy linchpins LeSean McCoy and Peyton Manning are primed to get off to huge starts. Most of your drafted studs have to play out of the gate, regardless of the matchups. Instead, use the analysis contained in these slides as a guide to setting lineups, finding hidden gems and navigating the sometimes uncertain kickoff weekend.
