The beginning of the season means minimal data points with which to work. The NFL preseason devolved into few breadcrumbs on offenses, roles, etc. What is your general approach to lineup building especially in Week 1 - are you more willing to play it safe with projected roles, usage, and offensive team strength, or take chances with bolder calls as there will be massive change post-Week 1 on the horizon?
Late in the season, you need to lean heavily on the data. In Week 1, it makes sense to take a less analytical approach. If you believe Curtis Samuel is poised to take a big leap heading into his third season, play him. If your gut feeling is that Andy Reid is going to give Damien Williams a real shot over the first few weeks to see what he can do in a true lead back role in Kansas City, play him.
