The 2021 NFL preseason is officially underway following last Thursday’s Hall of Fame Game. The preseason begins in earnest this week with a full 16-game slate starting Thursday and wrapping up Sunday.

This first game will likely see most healthy starters getting some playing time, but there will be limitations. Most starting QBs will not get more than a couple series, with rookies and other young players a potential exception. Last week, Ben Roethlisberger and Ezekiel Elliott did not play in the Hall of Fame Game, but we can probably expect them back.

Fantasy football draft season has begun, but doesn’t really get crazy until the second or third weekend of the preseason. That gives folks this first week to start assessing who is worth moving up or down your fantasy rankings. And of course, injuries will start to impact rankings.
