    Josh Gordon... clearly needed to be punished more harshly than Ray Rice.

    I have something of a quandry on my hands regarding my fantasy starting QB.

    My QBs are Foles who is facing a rather unimpressive Jacksonville Jaguars squad and Kaepernick up against quite possibly the worst Defensive secondary in the league.

    Foles and the Chip Kelly Offense were formidable last year but I'm somewhat worried about teams and defenses picking up on things.

    Kaepernick had a very poor looking pre-season but the Cowboys D and Secondary are so porous that he has a LOT of potential upside in this game.

    Foles = Safe Choice

    Kaep = Risk v Reward

    I don't know how safe of a bet Foles is without Desean.

    I'm so glad I don't play fantasy football anymore

    The Microsoft Engine That Nailed The World Cup Is Predicting Every NFL Game — Here Are Its Picks For Week 1

    http://finance.yahoo.com/news/microsoft-engine-nailed-world-cup-143528755.html


    Green Bay Packers at Seattle Seahawks — Seahawks win (74.2% chance)
    New Orleans Saints at Atlanta Falcons — Falcons win (61.4% chance)
    Minnesota Vikings at St. Louis Rams — Rams win (67.4% chance)
    Cleveland Browns at Pittsburgh Steelers — Steelers win (70.2% chance)
    Jacksonville Jaguars vs. Philadelphia Eagles — Eagles win (75.4% chance)
    Oakland Raiders at New York Jets — Jets win (62.9% chance)
    Cincinnati Bengals at Baltimore Ravens — Ravens win (59.8% chance)
    Buffalo Bills at Chicago Bears — Bears win (64.4% chance)
    Washington Redskins at Houston Texans — Texans win (51% chance)
    Tennessee Titans at Kansas City Chiefs — Chiefs win (64.4% chance)
    New England Patriots at Miami Dolphins — Patriots win (61.4% chance)
    Carolina Panthers at Tampa Bay Buccaneers — Buccaneers win (56.6% chance)
    San Francisco 49ers at Dallas Cowboys — 49ers win (68.8% chance)
    Indianapolis Colts at Denver Broncos — Broncos win (77.8% chance)
    New York Giants at Detroit Lions — Lions win (61.4%% chance)
    San Diego Chargers at Arizona Cardinals — Cardinals win (58.2% chance)
    Interestingly, Cortana picked the Vegas betting favorite in 15 of 16 Week 1 games. The only disparity is in the Saints-Falcons game. Vegas has New Orleans as a three-point favorite, while Cortana has Atlanta as a pretty big 61% favorite.

    The good news is the Giants are going to lose every game so you can shamelessly root for your fantasy players.

    I've never played, but my wife got roped into a league. Inevitably, I must learn how to play in order to advise.

    I think the #1 rule of 2014 fantasy football is: Start any offensive skill player that is playing against the Cowboys' defense.

    I have Gore as my second RB. Not sure if I want to put too many eggs in the basket.

    Gore against the Dallas D is a good bet - that was a bottom 3 defense last year before losing Ware and Sean Lee

    12th Man North is well represented behind the end zone tonight in Seattle.
