Navigating the first week of fantasy Football can be a little bit tricky. Teams have added new free agents and fantasy players have no idea which matchups are best for their fantasy players. So far, I've ranked the top 10 wide receivers, running backs, and tight ends. Now I'll give a preview of the tenbest week 1 fantasy football quarterbacks.

1. Aaron Rodgers

Rodgers is one of the best quarterbacks in the league and gets to play against a Jaguars defense that frequently allowed big fantasy games to mediocre players last season. Rodgers should have no trouble putting up at least 20 fantasy points in this one.

2. Russell Wilson

The Seahawks quarterback scored the third most fantasy points last season and should again be lauded as one of the better fantasy quarterbacks in the league. He draws the revamped Miami defense in week 1, which was only average against the pass last season. Wilson's status as an elite fantay quarterback shouldn't be in question thanks to his eliterushing ability.

3. Drew Brees

The Saints star quarterback didn't pick up many wins last season but still managed to stuff the stat sheet. He'll get to play against a weak secondary in what should be a very close and high scoring game against the Oakland Raiders. If you have Brees on your team, he should definitely be starting this week.

4. Derek Carr

The number of points scored in the Raiders Saints game is going to be astronomically high. Derek Carr is improving and the Saints defense was historically bad last season. That's a great recipe for a young quarterbackwho will love throwing the ball to star receiver Amari Cooper against what will likely be a nonexistent defense.

5. Ben Roethlisberger

The Steelers play the Redskins in the first game of the season. Last year, the Redskins struggled in the secondary aside from rising star Bashaud Breeland. Now the Redskins have added star cornerback Josh Norman. But I don't think Norman will help stop Antonio Brown, the best receiver in the league who is essentially uncoverable right now.

That makes Roethlisberger a top quarterback option for week 1.

6. Andrew Luck

Detroit's defense and their entire team is bad this season. The Colts still have no rushing game, which means they will be forced to rely on Andrew Luck for scoring once again. He should have enough opportunities to reach the threshold point total that will make any fantasy owner happy.

7. Kirk Cousins

The Redskins quarterback ended the 2015 season on a hot streak, scoring at least 20 fantasy points in four of his last six weeks. He'll get a chance to continue that streak against a Steelers team that isn't great at defending the pass. Cousins has looked solid in the preseason and should have plenty of chances in what should be a high scoring game.

8. Tyrod Taylor

The Buffalo Bills quarterback gets a favorable matchup against his old team who he will have extra motivation to beat. Tyrod earns top 10 status thanks to that storyline and his innate rushing ability, which madehim one of the better fantasy quarterbacks last season. Expect another big performance in week 1 of the season.

9. Matthew Stafford

Stafford lost his best receiver and will now have to rely on Golden Tate, Eric Ebron, and Marvin Jones for production. It might not matter against a Colts defense that gave up more fantasy points than half of the NFL to opposing quarterbacks. Stafford shouldn't have any problem carving up a weak Colts defense if his receivers manage to get open.

10. Dak Prescott

Yes, I did just rank a rookie in the tenth slot. Prescott has been good enough in the preseason to be considered a legitimate fantasy quarterback. He will also get his first shot against one of the worst defenses in the league, something that will help inflate his week 1 fantasy total significantly.
