For the latest injury reports, check out Fantasy Football Toolbox!Fav QB MatchupMatt Ryan @ New Orleans SaintsThis is going to be the most entertaining game this week, but the Falcons offense is just better than New Orleans.  Drew Brees might match Ryan on every level, but I will take the QB from the winning team.  Julio Jones, Roddy White, Tony Gonzalez and Steven Jackson....how do you even think about stopping them?Fav RB MatchupMarshawn Lynch @ Carolina PanthersThe Panthers were an average run defense last season and even held Marshawn Lynch to 85 yards on 21 carries.  But Carolina added two rookies to their defensive line and could take full advantage of first game jitters.  Beast Mode ON!Fav WR MatchupReggie Wayne vs Oakland RaidersIf you didn't notice, last season Andrew Luck fell in love with Reggie Wayne.  Wayne averaged double digit targets all last season and the Colts could score a bunch of points in Week 1.Fav TE MatchupVernon Davis vs Green Bay PackersDavis has a caught a TD in each of the last 3 meetings against the Packers and eclipsed 100 yards twice.  The passing game will go through him and Anquan Boldin so there is room for many targets!Fav DEF MatchupTampa Bay Buccaneers @ New York JetsThe Bucs get burned when teams pass the pigskin and Geno Smith will be making his NFL debut.  Tampa can contain the Jets "ground and pound" with Bilal Powell getting the nod over Chris Ivory, but Ivory will get his fair share of touches.  Tampa Bay allowed just 82 rushing yards per game, but that was aided by their terrible pass defense, which allowed a league worst 297 yards per game.  Perfect matchup here.Upset of the WeekBengals @ BearsPick 6Patriots @ BillsSeahawks @ PanthersBrowns vs DolphinsChiefs @ JaguarsColts vs RaidersTexans @ ChargersThings to Look ForWhat will the Ravens defense look like without Ray Lewis, Ed Reed and Co.What will the Patriots offense look likeCan the Steelers and Isaac Redman move the football on the groundAre Jamaal Charles & Maurice Jones-Drew healthyWhat are you looking for during Week 1 action?
