2020 Fantasy Football Week 1 NFL Recap

We made it! The 2020 NFL fantasy ff season is back.

It’s nice to have some normalcy on my Sundays again. Here are some of my thoughts and observations from the weekend.

Clyde Edwards-Helaire was a Top 5 Fantasy Draft Pick

Clyde Edwards-Helaire was getting drafted as a Top 5 back in most fantasy drafts. He proved his owners right on Thursday Night shredding the Texans defense. Speaking of the Texans, without De Hop, their offense doesn’t scare anybody. The Rams have a new stadium that puts Jerry’s World to shame. Too bad they have the ugliest uniforms in the league.

Cooper Kupp went from #18 to #10

Cooper Kupp went from #18 to #10. And why is he returning punts? Cam outplayed Tom. Drew beat Tom but is starting to look his age. Michael Thomas owners must be pissed for not drafting Davante Adams instead. RB Jonathan Taylor owners are pleased now that RB Marlon Mack is out for the year with a torn achilles. James Conner got hurt again. All three Dirty Birds receivers got over a hundred receiving yards. Is Joshua Kelley the new Melvin Gordon in Los Angeles. Is Austin Ekeler a product of Phillip Rivers being the QB? Adrian Peterson has found the fountain of youth in Detroit.

And why oh why did MNF fire Hank Williams Jr. and all his rowdy friends?
