Disclaimer: For any fantasy scoring numbers, I will be using those generated by Yahoo! fantasy football. It is the system on which I’ve played a majority of my fantasy football over the years – and currently play. Other setups are fine – I’ve worked with ESPN and NFL fantasy football teams in the past – but seeing as I have the most experience using this scoring system, I’ll stick with using their methods of scoring.

OK Green Bay Packers fans!

The time is finally here; the 2015 season can begin!

This is an exciting time, no doubt, but doubly exciting for those of you who play the game within the game – fantasy football.

For those who join me in that fun exercise, this post is for you.

For those who read my fantasy profiles last fall, I’ll be laying this out the same way.

For those who didn’t, here’s a quick rundown of how things will look:

– Breakdown by position (QB, RBs, WRs, TEs, K, Defense)
– Last season’s statistics (after Week 1, it’ll be last week’s statistics)
– Information & Analysis
– Weekly Statistical Predictions
– Start-or-Sit Verdict

For certain positions, things will be somewhat crowded at first, but as the season goes on and we figure out who the likely contributors are I can begin to knock off a few names here and there so as to save time (ex.: if a RB is constantly not seeing snaps and/or is mostly deactivated).

This week we begin a new season against an old rival, the Chicago Bears.

Can Green Bay start off with a season-opening win for the first time since 2011? Or will Chicago begin their rebuild under John Fox with a victory?

While we all want the Packers to win, these questions don’t exactly matter in this article; all we need in fantasy-land are the numbers, and lots of them.

We’ll start with our own #12…
