Start: Greg Olsen, Panthers (at Jac)
After the loss of Kelvin Benjamin, Olsen became the clear-cut No. 1 option for Cam Newton. He will get plenty of targets all season long and those targets are likely to turn into points this week, as he has a favorable matchup against the Jaguars. If you have Olsen, start him with the utmost confidence.
Sit: Owen Daniels, Broncos (at Bal)
Daniels is typically a reliable fantasy option, but I’m not sold on his chemistry with Peyton Manning just yet. It may take them a little bit to get used to one another and the Ravens are one of the worst opponents they could have drawn for Week 1. Baltimore’s defense should be one of the best against the run and improved defending the pass.
Start: Rob Gronkowski, Patriots (vs. Pit)
Gronk is just one of those players who is impossible to defend. He’s monstrous and athletic, kind of like the football version of a Monstar. With Brady back in the fold, expect Gronk to get plenty of looks, even against a solid Steelers’ defense. It’s quite hard to sit the best tight end in the game.
Sit: Coby Fleener, Colts (at Buf)
Fleener is a player who has yet to reach his full potential in the NFL. He’s still young, but in terms of fantasy, he hasn’t brought much to the table. This could be his year, but he’ll have to wait another week before big numbers are on the board. The Bills have had an elite defense the past two seasons and 2015 will be no different.
