Who To Start

LeSean McCoy, RB, Philadelphia Eagles – Once again, this one kind of goes without saying — if you drafted McCoy, you need to start him. McCoy is a fantasy stud and is entering his second year under Chip Kelly’s offense. Some to think defenses will adapt to college-style system, I’m calling bluff.

McCoy takes on the Jacksonville Jaguars in week 1 at home. He has the ability to torch the Jags both on the ground and through the air, and likely will. Start Shady!

Rueben Randle, WR, New York Giants – Randle, Eli Manning, and the G-Men take on the Detroit Lions in week 1. This matchup is a goldmine for fantasy football owners. Not only is the Lions secondary considerably unproven this season, but their offense is an absolute powerhouse.

You do the math — this game equals shootout!

Randle was labeled a sleeper my many fantasy experts and his matchup in week 1 is the best opportunity to roll the dice on him. If you have Randle on your roster, start him vs. Detroit.
