If your fantasy football draft hasn’t taken place yet, it’s sure to go down soon—time is running out! The NFL season commences Thursday, Sept. 5.
It all begins with what’s sure to be an epic Green Bay Packers-Chicago Bears matchup at Soldier Field. Remember last year’s Week 1 showdown between the NFC North rivals, when newly acquired Khalil Mack wreaked havoc on the Green Bay O-line, but the Packers stormed back in the fourth quarter for a 24-23 win? With sky-high expectations for both teams (they are tied for the third-best Super Bowl odds in the NFC) and all the excitement of the season’s first game, the encore promises to deliver high-quality entertainment yet again.

We share our top 10 below, highlighting why you should prioritize these players as you pursue bragging rights this season.
