You've probably been told OFTEN that you shouldn't overreact to Week 1 of the fantasy football season. But what ... exactly ... is an overreaction? And what is merely an appropriate reaction to the 1st set of real NFL games for the year? That's what we're trying to sort out on today's show. We have WR tiers for the waiver wire. We have defenses to target over the next 2 weeks. And we have some reasons you shouldn't panic yet if you own Todd Gurley, Kerryon Johnson or Adam Thielen.

Here's the rundown:

Darren Waller's breakout? ... 8:31

Indy just might be OK ... or better? ... 9:41

D.K. Metcalf ready ... 12:48
