All good points, I think I'll take Indy at home. Better play it safe week 1.

Here are my picks for our pick pool through myfantasyleague. It's to much work to type it out so here's a pic. Let me know what you think.

Cincinnati over Baltimore.

Joe Flacco is going to experience a baptism under fire and they have no other QBs to plug in if something happens. This will be the start of a very long season for Baltimore.

Yo Jason,

I'd probably wouldn't pick against the Pack, not with them playing at home. I don't care how inexperienced Rodgers is, he's 10x better than anything the Vikes can put out there. Don't forget that GBay's D is good. Vikes are gonna struggle big time to score.

I wasn't super confident about it as you can tell by the ranking, but the Vikes are better than the pack a tad, and Adrian will be the difference. Rogers will keep it close but Vikes edge it out.

True but the Bengals have a host of issues that scare the crap out of me. Who knows what to expect from their RB's, they have like nobody but Housh to throw the ball to, O-Line might be shaky... Plus it's IN Baltimore. Baltimore's D might be old but they can still play.

McGahee should get 40 carries in the game in efforts to help Flacco out and he alone could lead Baltimore victory in a low scoring 13-7 type game.

If McGahee's out is this a no-brainer for the Bengals?

Whoops my mistake I forgot McGahee's not 100%.

Ray Rice will get 25 carries and McGahee will get 15 in that case. Either way the Ravens will run the ball more than a ton in the game- I can't say it's a no brainer for the Bengals but with McGahee hurt it's a whole lot better for the Bengals.

I wouldn't touch this game. Chad Pennington is gonna want revenge on his old team. Plus Miami is at home with a very strong running game. I would go safe with NE or Indy.
