FANTASY FOOTBALL: WHAT TO MONITOR IN WEEK ONE

On Saturday in the New Haven Register we listed my top 10 players to start and sit. That list is below.
The fantasy key today on NFL's opening day Sunday is to monitor certain teams and players.
I've been singing the praises of the Oakland Raiders the past two months and I believe they start surprising people today. Keep an eye on new QB Jason Campbell who is the catalyst for my optimistic sentiment. He should have a solid day but also watch back Darren McFadden and receivers Louis Murphy and Darius Heyward-Bey. These guys should have a great day today.
Most people are gushing about the Green Bay Packers and many handicappers have the Pack winning easily over the Philadelphia Eagles. Ain't gonna happen in my opinion.
Sure, the Packers will get their fantasy stats. But Eagles new QB Kevin Kolb, tight end Brent Celek and receivers DeSean Jackson and Jeremy Maclin want to prove there is life after Donovan McNabb. These Eagles should get double-digit production today.
Lastly, keep an eye on the Chicago Bears. I am convinced new offensive coordinator Mike Martz will have this team on fire with his aggressive passing schemes. QB Jay Cutler, back Matt Forte and receiver Johnny Knox will have a huge day today as well.


10 PLAYERS TO START, 10 TO SIT
10 Players to start: Quarterbacks – Matt Schaub, Kevin Kolb; Running backs – Ronnie Brown, Matt Forte, Cedric Benson, Darren McFadden, Ryan Matthews; Receivers – Roddy White, Johnny Knox; Tight end – Brent Celek.
10 Players to sit: Quarterbacks – Josh Freeman, Dennis Dixon, Trent Edwards; Running backs – Clinton Portis, Knowshon Moreno, Justin Forsett; Receivers – Hines Ward, Lee Evans, Donald Driver, Nate Washington.
