Nicholas Minnix's Week 1 fantasy football matchups

No-brainers and no-ways? Matchups that look too good to be true certainly can be. And surprise performers lurk in the shadows. It may not be enough to consider lineup changes, but you know what they say about assumptions....

Key Matchup Reason
Ray Rice, RB, BAL vs. Kansas City Chiefs front seven Baltimore in for a rude awakening? KC's run D might - might - not as bad as you think
Larry Fitzgerald, WR, ARI vs. Nate Clements, CB, SF Look out: Fitz posted his 2 lowest yardage totals against Clements and SF last year
Santana Moss, WR, WAS vs. New York Giants CBs G-men down a corner; 'Skins' improved aerial game helps Moss pick on subpar cover men
Brandon Stokley, WR, DEN vs. Cincinnati Bengals CBs Cincy's top CBs will be on islands; DEN spreads 'em out, Stokley exploits 'em underneath
Desmond Clark, TE, CHI vs. Green Bay Packers LBs Greg Olsen gets his, but who's playing Clark? GB won't be, so don't forget about him
