Before setting your Week 1 Fantasy football lineups for the 2021 NFL season, you NEED to see what SportsLine's advanced computer model has to say. When it comes to ranking players, SportsLine's model beat human experts for the past several seasons, especially when there were big difference in ranking! That could literally be the difference between winning your league or going home empty-handed.

Last year, the model accurately predicted that Bills quarterback Josh Allen was being drastically undervalued. His Fantasy football ADP was barely in the top 70, but the model pegged him as a top-five Fantasy quarterback, a QB1 who would finish well ahead of players like Kyler Murray, Tom Brady and Drew Brees. Allen ended up being the No. 2-scoring Fantasy QB, outscoring all three of those other quarterbacks and even surpassing Patrick Mahomes. Fantasy players who followed SportsLine's advice reaped plenty of value with that pick. 

Now the model, which simulates every NFL game 10,000 times, has revealed its latest Week 1 Fantasy football rankings.

One player the model is high on this week: Cardinals quarterback Kyler Murray, who gets a mouthwatering matchup against the Titans. And a massive shocker: Chargers quarterback Justin Herbert, who threw for 4,336 yards and 31 touchdowns last season, stumbles big-time and barely cracks the top-15 at his position! He's a player to consider putting on the bench. 

The model is also calling for a SHOCKING quarterback you aren't even thinking about to finish in the top 10 of its Fantasy football rankings! This pick could be the difference between winning BIG and going home with nothing. You ABSOLUTELY need to see who it is before locking in your lineups.

So who should you start and sit in Week 1? And which surprising quarterback could lead you to victory? ...
