2016 Draft Kit

2014 fantasy football | Quarterback projections for Week 1

[THESE RANKINGS HAVE BEEN UPDATED]

Here I am in the wee hours of the morning on the first day of the 2014 NFL season.

It’s not that I can’t sleep in anticipation of unwrapping the fantasy football gifts that will be left for me by the time this weekend is over.

No, I won’t sleep until you have projections for Week 1 of 2014 fantasy football.

We start with quarterbacks, where we have the usual suspects, minus Aaron Rodgers, leading the way. I’ve jacked up his stats twice, but the numbers just don’t add up against the Seahawks defense. For jzak’s sake, I hope it is not so. Colin Kaepernick looks like the deal of the week at your daily fantasy site of choice. We’re big fans of Draft Kings, if you go there and sign up using an ad on this page, or with the link I just typed past, you give us a few cents, which is cool.

I’d like to tweak these at least one more time before Sunday, but some of you need to set lineups today, so here are my quarterback projections for Week 1 of 2014 fantasy football:
