Fantasy Football Player Notes

Week 1 Rankings

Trevor Lawrence Note

The arrow continues to point up for Lawrence, one of the best young quarterbacks in the game. After a nightmarish rookie season during Urban Meyer's turbulent reign as the Jaguars' head coach, Lawrence flourished last season under new head coach Doug Pederson, throwing for 4,113 yards and 25 touchdowns. And finishing seventh in the MVP balloting. T-Law has a shiny new toy to play with: WR Calvin Ridley, whose route-running ability drew oohs and ahs from onlookers throughout training camp. Lawrence averaged 17.9 fantasy points per game last season, and as he continues to improve, there's no reason he can't hit 20 points per game in his third year as a starter. Play him with confidence against the Colts.

Mac Jones Note

The aforementioned Patriots starting quarterback was "somehow" able to fend off the Bailey Zappe hive mind to maintain QB1 duties in New England. While Jones' second year in the NFL was a massive disappointment, the coaching and personnel changes will go a long way for the New England Patriots to be at least a "functioning" offense in 2023. But Week 1 will present an extremely tough challenge for Jones and company, versus arguably the league's best defense. The matchup in the trenches is particularly worrisome, as the Patriots OL - having just placed tackle Riley Reiff on IR - has glaring issues, specifically at the tackle positions. Not ideal against a defense that led all teams in sacks and added the best player in the draft with Jalen Carter this offseason.
