James Conner, Ryan Fitzpatrick and Tyreek Hill starred in Week 1. One of those guys delivered in a situation we all love, one surprised everybody and one left us recanting our words against his draft status.

The opening week of the NFL regular season of course gives us a lot to digest and overreact to, so we're running through the key developments to Sunday and trying to figure out the appropriate reactions. Of course, you can check out our updated Rest of the Way rankings and weekly Free Agent Focus articles to see how we recommend adjusting your fantasy rosters (or not).

On this show, though, here's what we're talking about ...
