A Look Back At Week 1's Match-ups Of Note

This week I added a caveat about the quality of the quarterbacks. A team with a franchise caliber quarterback can overcome bad line play. A team with a shaky quarterback can make life harder. This can be seen in the performances of Matt Ryan and Phillip Rivers. These players can overcome terrible matchups, and were the inspiration for the middle ground categories. 

Going back to the Week 1's Match-ups of note, the fade ATL and SD calls admittedly weren't great.  However, this is a learning experience, and more positively, there was some valuable information in the first batch.
Green Bay did in fact run wild, in both the running and passing game, that was a great call. Also, it was smart to recommend staying away from both Seattle and St. Louis. Marshawn Lynch will have much better days than 18 carries for 73 yards (and a resounding stuff on 4th and 1 in overtime).  On the other side of the football, Rams quarterback Nick Foles had fantasy points but St. Louis did not have any running game of which to speak.
Best of luck this week, you kings of draft.

  1. I think you made a typo. It says PIT @ STL. I think it's PIT @ 49ers.
