The long wait is finally over — the 2019 NFL season is set to kick off on Thursday night and that means it’s the start of fantasy football season, too. Charles Curtis gives you his Studs, Duds and Sleepers for Week 1.


Fantasy football rankings for Week 1 are based on the point-per-reception (PPR) scoring used in most seasonal and daily fantasy football formats. One point is awarded for every 10 rushing and receiving yards and one point for every 20 passing yards. Six points are awarded for touchdowns scored, four points for passing TDs and one point for receptions.

Rankings are compiled by Updated Sept. 12.
