The last draft weekend is in the rearview mirror, and we are just three days away from the return of regular-season NFL football. After weeks of research, adjustments and preseason action, we're on the cusp of the 2021 fantasy football season. There's still time to draft, so if your league has a last-minute draft planned, be sure to check out what our Draft Guide has to offer with our sneak-peeks into a variety of the tools available, including our first expert mock draft, sleepers, overall half-PPR rankings, half-PPR RB rankings, half-PPR WR rankings, QB Dynasty Rankings and RB Dynasty Rankings for 2021, look at our updated QB Tiers.

At NBC Sports EDGE, we're striving to give you the tools to guide you to winning your league's fantasy football championship. With Week 1 looming closer, it's time to unveil our 2021 NFL Season Tools. Aimed at giving you the knowledge you need to stay a step ahead of your league-mates all season long — from projections, weekly rankings, league sync, top waiver recommendations and positional reports, to exclusive expert columns — this year's edition is the finest we've ever produced.

Our first look into the Season Tools will be our weekly projections, notable for Quarterbacks and their Week 1 matchups. Projections are a helpful way for managers to gauge the difficulty of a player's matchup on any given week, as well as offer context into whether or not to expect a boom or bust performance, and thus help you make educated start/sit decisions.
