The NFL regular season starts tomorrow, and that means fantasy football players are looking at who to possibly start. Those who are in daily fantasy football leagues might be considering a bunch of different quarterbacks to go with depending on match-ups. While no-one knows for sure which team has the best defense or which team has the worst defense in 2014 just yet, it is pretty easy to look at past statistics to see who could have success.
The San Francisco 49ers decide to give Kaepernick a brand new contract, and he will be able to hit the ground running against possibly the worst defense in the entire NFL. Not only was Dallas expected to struggle on defense, but injuries have made them even worse. They gave up 286.8 passing yards a year ago, and 128.5 rushing yards per game. This is great news for the youngster out of Nevada who is looking to prove he deserved the large contract signed this off-season.
Nick Foles (vs. Jacksonville Jaguars)
A year ago, no one knew whether or not Foles would ever get a shot at being a consistent starter at the NFL level. Now, he is locked in as the franchise quarterback for the Philadelphia Eagles. The offense will be looking to put up some pretty nice numbers against the Jacksonville Jaguars in week 1. The Jaguars are still not very good, and on the road they are usually even worse.
Potential Bargain: Derek Carr (@ New York Jets)
This pick is aimed for the daily fantasy players, but it could prove to be a worthy gamble. Derek Carr will be at near basement prices across all sites and that could allow you to stack your line-up at other positions. Carr earned the starting job with stellar off-season and pre-season play and he will be looking to prove he deserves the start. It doesn’t hurt that the Jets’ secondary situation heading into Week 1 is abysmal. Darrin Walls and Antonio Allen (a safety just 3 weeks ago) will be getting the start and that could allow Carr to have a pretty good game especially compared to his price.
