I truly believe that Fred Jackson will be a top 30 back again this season. Maybe not the top 15 back he was in 2013 but still very startable in deeper leagues and as an every week flex.

CHI was the 2nd worst run D in terms of fantasy points given allowed to running backs. With few improvements along that front in the offseason, fire up Fred and CJ.

Lacy still has high RB2 appeal in Week 1, but it is a very tough matchup in Seattle. The Seahawks were ranked second against fantasy backs last year.
