Thursday Night Football: Eagles vs FalconsIf you have Falcons or Eagles on your fantasy roster then you need to set your line up before tonight’s season opener. Philly is a tough opener for the Falcons but they are healthy and should be motivated. Here’s my advice for your relevant fantasy players.Start with ConfidenceWR Julio JonesIf Julio is healthy you start him every game until further notice http://www.panthersauthorizedshops.com/authentic-devin-funchess-jersey , no matter who the Falcons are playing. The Falcons should throw a good bit in this game provided the Eagles don’t control the clock like they did in their playoff win over the Falcons.QB Matt RyanRyan was not ranked as a top tier QB in most fantasy drafts but he can put up big numbers any given Sunday. The problem with this match-up is it’s the season opener, on the road, against the World Champs who have a tough D. On the flip side the Falcons have a good offensive line and the Eagles secondary is fairly pedestrian. I expect Ryan to air it early to help the running game. I say start him unless you have a better option with a better match-up.TE Zach ErtzYou most likely drafted him high so you have to play him even if his QB is less than ideal. But we doubted Nick Foles all last season and he proved us wrong. With Alshon Jeffrey out of the line up Ertz should get 5 to 10 targets minimum. Let’s see what he can do with them.Start with CautionRB Devonta FreemanFreeman will again most likely split the backfield carries with Tevin Coleman which is why Freeman is a borderline RB1. The Eagles defense is tough against the run so that adds up to a mediocre day for Freeman in my book. Start him is you have too RB Jay AjayiGiven the Eagles have one of the best, if not the best offensive lines in the NFL the Eagles running game should be effective. Especially since the Falcons no longer have Dontari Poe up front (hee hee). It’s just at this point we don’t know which RB will get the most touches, Ajayi or Darren Sproles. It should be Ajayi but we’ve made that mistake before. At this point in the season if you drafted Ajayi to start you have to start him but just know his touches may not be ideal. If he breaks a long run for a TD he could have a big day fantasy points wise. RB Darren SprolesHow old is this guy anyway? Good hands are hard to find and so in a PPR league Sproles has value. If you drafted him to start, which I doubt you did, then start him with caution. My advice though is to wait until we see how Eagles HC Doug Pederson uses his backfield. Avoid StartingRB Tevin ColemanColeman will have some value when the match-up is right. This is not the week.QB Nick FolesHe’s looked terrible in the preseason and certainly you have better options.Eagles WRsUntil Carson Wentz gets back leave them on your bench. Nelson Agholor is the only Eagle WR I would start at this point.Either of these defensesIf you drafted the Eagles to start them then I guess you have no choice but if it were me I’d look for a streaming option in week 1. The key will be if the Eagles can control the clock then their defense could be a decent start, just don’t expect more than 10 points. Panthers vs Cowboys Start with ConfidenceRB Ezekiel ElliotRB Christian McCaffreyZeke and C-Mac are no-brainers every week, no matter the match-up.QB Cam NewtonI like Newton this week and I suspect every week as the Norv Turner offense will put up yards and points. Newton has the most weapons at his disposal and I expect him to sue them. The Cowboy defense has it’s tough spots but I expect them to be on the field a lot. Newton and the Panther offense will make a splash in the opener.TE Greg OlsenDon’t let the increase in weapons in the offense shy you away from starting Olsen. Olsen will remain one of Newton’s top targets in 2018 Shaq Thompson Jersey , especially in the red zone. The only question is how much McCaffrey will cut into Olsen targets. Start with CautionWR Allen HurnsHurns is essentially the Cowboys WR1 which has to be worrisome to Cowboys fans. Yet the word is (outside Carolina anyway) the Panthers secondary is suspect. So even though I’m a Panthers homer I would start Hurns if I didn’t have two better options. Panthers DefenseI know we all think the Panthers defense is underrated but this is still a tough match up. I personally am starting the Panthers in leagues in which I own them and here’s why. If you listened to my podcast last week with the Cowboys blogger the Cowboys offensive line is missing a couple key pieces on the interior of the line, most notably center Travis Frederick. That plays to the Panthers defense’s strength. If the Cowboys can’t run the ball then they have to throw and that will create opportunities for the pass rush and turn overs. Dak Prescott should not scare anyone on the Panthers defense.WR Devin FunchessMy main question here is how many targets will Funchess get in the Panthers’ new offense. If he gets 8-10 targets then he is worth a start because there is no doubt Funchess is ready for a break out season. It’s all about the opportunity. Avoid StartingQB Dak PrescottOutside of Elliott I just don’t know where the offense is going to come from in Dallas. If you have a decent 2nd option to start at QB I advise a wait and see approach towards Prescott.I don’t see any addition options to start from this game at this time. Certainly several players could burst on the scene in 2018 but for fantasy purposes I would wait to see it happen rather than pray it happens.Draft Q&A with Rocky Top Talk on Panthers’ third round pick Rashaan Gaulden Today I spoke with Terry Lambert of SB Nation’s Rocky Top Talk about Rashaan Gaulden’s career as a Tennessee Volunteer and why Panthers fans aren’t out of line in hoping that he could develop into a safety in the NFL.Cat Scratch Reader: What does Gaulden do best in the secondary?Rocky Top Talk: Gaulden’s best quality to me was his ability to impact the run defense. Tennessee played a ton of nickel and put Gaulden in a bunch of in-the-box situations. He’s an outstanding open field tackler and very instinctive when playing the run. CSR: What can you tell us about Gaulden’s ability to play the ball in the air? RTT: Tough question to answer here because he just wasn’t in a position to play the ball in the air a ton at Tennessee, hence the career interception total of one. The best thing he’s got going for him in this area is his length at 6-1, but I’m not sure he’s got the pure athletic ability to consistently stick with NFL receivers in man to man coverage. I’m fascinated to see how the Panthers use him. CSR: What was Gaulden’s most memorable moment for the Volunteers?RTT: Yeah this is an easy one. Tennessee is getting absolutely trashed by Alabama and in a pure moment of joy, Gaulden flips off the Alabama crowd. Tennessee didn’t have many moments to celebrate in 2017, so it’s hard to blame him. He later apologized, but it made most fans love him even more. CSR: From bust to hall-of-fame, how well do you think Gaulden’s career will go?RTT: I think Gaulden has enough ability and length to be productive at the next level. He’s probably not a good enough pure athlete to succeed as a true cornerback, but he would thrive in a nickel or safety role. I’ll give him a solid-NFL-starter grade.CSR: What is one thing about Gaulden’s game that you won’t hear in the average scouting report?RTT: He’s a pest and a little bit of an agitator. The guy just flat makes plays. I remember a moment against Georgia Tech where the game appeared lost -- Tech was actually running in for another touchdown to ice the game. Gaulden came in out of nowhere and punched the ball out Authentic C.J. Anderson Jersey , forcing a turnover. Tennessee found a way to win from there, all because of that one play. CSR: What was your reaction to the Panthers drafting him?RTT: Decent spot. My immediate thought was that he could challenge for playing time at safety on that roster, which is where I think he will be best. CSR: Are there any good off field stories about Gaulden’s time at Tennessee?RTT: Going back to his middle-finger salute — Gaulden apologized, but then kind of doubled down on the moment at the same time. He famously said “I hate Alabama, that’s just how it is,” during an interview at Tennessee’s pro day. I can’t tell you how much that resonates with people in Knoxville.
