Ranks reaction: Do you sit Anquan Boldin? 

September, 8, 2010
Baltimore Ravens teammates Joe Flacco and Anquan Boldin might be tremendous fantasy assets this season, but I wouldn't recommend them this week, as my Week 1 player rankings reveal.

You'll see the weekly rankings from Matthew Berry, Christopher Harris, Erik Kuselias and myself each Wednesday, and I'll react accordingly, looking for players or units that don't jibe with the rankings of the other three, or at least go against conventional wisdom. And in the case of the Ravens' passing game, it's all about that Darrelle Revis fellow and his Jets teammates. Maybe you've heard, that's a good defense!

Yes, I'm conservative when it comes to fantasy rankings and most other things in the sport, and many of my Week 1 rankings are based on how I feel about players overall for the season. As games are played, things will change, and fast. I have made some adjustments for this week, of course, and for the most part, those changes are based on matchups. As in, Flacco and Boldin have a very tough one.
