Before setting your Week 1 Fantasy football lineups, you need to see what our advanced computer model has to say. When it comes to ranking players, this model beat human experts in Fantasy football last season when there were big differences in ranking. And the model was closest-to-the-hole overall, meaning it best pinpointed where every player would finish each week. That could literally be the difference between winning your league or going home empty-handed.

Now the model, which simulates every game 10,000 times, has revealed its rankings for Week 1 of the NFL season.

One player the model loves this week: Bears tight end Trey Burton, who will become a focal point of the Bears' offense. He had five touchdowns in limited action with the Eagles last season and is a major force in the red zone.

And a massive shocker: Seahawks QB Russell Wilson, a top-5 quarterback according to market value, stumbles big-time this week against Denver and finishes outside the top 20. He's a player to bench in Week 1.

The model is also calling for a surprising receiver you aren't even thinking about to finish in the top 10 of the rankings. This pick could be the difference between winning BIG and going home with nothing.

So who should you sit and start this week? And where does every player stack up?... Join SportsLine right now to get Fantasy football rankings for every single position, and see which shocking WR is going to finish in the top 10 this week, all from the model that out-performed experts big time last season!
