With Week 1 of the 2014 Fantasy Football season just around the corner it's time to start planning for victory in week 1.


We've analyzed data from the last 5 seasons to show the top 50 scorers over the past years to help you plan your lineup. Check out the list below to see all of the players.


The statistics show that there isn't much benefit to being the home team. Across these 50 top scorers, 26 players were the home team and 24 players were the away team, basically a 50/50 split.


However, the numbers tell us that your best bet to having the top scorer in week 1 is with a QB (not much of a surprise) followed by a top RB. Over the past 5 years the top 50 scorers were made up of 33 QBs, 7 RBs, 9 WRs, and only 1 TE.
