Week 1 Preview: Thursday Edition Valhalla Vagrants Faces Angry Pollocks to Start Season Updated: Thursday September 04, 2014 10:23:03 AM EDT Valhalla Vagrants kicks off their fantasy season tonight with a big matchup, taking on Angry Pollocks. According to recent projections, the outcome isn't etched in stone, with Valhalla Vagrants favored to win by 4.12 points. Valhalla Vagrants will suit up the Seahawks Defense (7.00 projected points), Aaron Rodgers (16.26 projected points), and Steven Hauschka (12.00 projected points) in tonight's game, while Angry Pollocks has Randall Cobb (6.10 projected points). Two other league matchups get going tonight. Valhalla Vagrants has a pronounced advantage at the WR position, where Brandon Marshall and Mike Wallace are projected to outscore Pierre Garcon and Randall Cobb, 21.80 - 12.70. For Angry Pollocks to be competitive, they'll need to capitalize at the QB position, where Peyton Manning is expected to score more than Aaron Rodgers, 25.44 - 16.26. Valhalla Vagrants has four players (including Aaron Rodgers and Brandon Marshall) facing a top-10-ranked defense this week. Angry Pollocks has three starters (Randall Cobb, Reggie Bush, and Le'Veon Bell) going up against a top-10 defense and one (Peyton Manning) against a defense ranked in the bottom 10. Valhalla Vagrants has made two lineup changes since Tuesday, starting Joique Bell (3.70 projected points) and Rodgers (16.26 projected points) while benching Philip Rivers (12.82 projected points) and Fred Jackson (3.10 projected points). They could be interested in picking up Steve Johnson (7.50 projected points) to start over Mike Wallace (5.90 projected points) and adding the Redskins Defense (9.00 projected points) to start in place of the Seahawks D (7.00 projected points). Angry Pollocks has not made any changes to their lineup. They might consider picking up Travis Kelce (6.10 projected points) to start over Jordan Reed (4.50 projected points) and substituting in the Ravens Defense (8.00 projected points) for the Patriots Defense (5.00 projected points).
