I already had Zach Charbonnet listed as a sleeper for Week 1 with his matchup against the Rams, but now he could be in line for a monster performance with Kenneth Walker III (groin) banged up. If Walker is out, Charbonnet would be a top-15 Fantasy running back in all leagues.
But even if Walker plays in Week 1, I still like Charbonnet as a flex option. Walker injured his groin in training camp, and it’s clearly still an issue to some degree if he was limited in practice Thursday.
Seattle might opt to ease Walker back into action and lean more on Charbonnet, who had some positive moments in the preseason. I’m curious to see how this backfield split will work in Week 1 and all season, but I expect Charbonnet to get a healthy amount of touches against the Rams in a game the Seahawks should win (Seattle is minus-5).
Now, let’s look at other sleepers to target in Week 1. Hopefully, they deliver in a big way to give your lineup a significant boost. And if you’re looking for my Week 1 DFS plays, you can find my million-dollar contest tournament lineups for both DraftKings and FanDuel over at SportsLine.
