The 2015 NFL regular season is officially underway! The New England Patriots took care of business on Thursday, September 10 with a 28-21 victory over the Pittsburgh Steelers.

In a game highlighted by Tom Brady‘s triumphant return, fantasy football owners got their first look at what type of season it’s going to be.

Some of the usual suspects showed no signs of rust, dominating the opposition for massive scoring outbursts. Others lacked the monster numbers one might desire, but displayed the value of their consistency and reliability.

It all starts with Brady.

Note: Point-per-reception numbers assume each reception is 1.0 point.
