Quarterback: $9,500 Tom Brady- Terrific Tom has put together back-to-back dominant performances, therefore silencing the doubters after a poor Week 1. Drew Brees put together a monstrous game against the Carolina Panthers last week, and Brady should be able to do the same. He is by far the best bet for cash games, but I would go elsewhere in larger tournament formats.
Running Back: $8,000 Todd Gurley- Gurley has regained some of his 2015 form that made him offensive rookie of the year. After scoring six touchdowns in his fist three games, Gurley seems like as sure a bet as any to find the end zone this week. What makes him an even more enticing play, however, is his involvement in the passing game. He should be able to give you something north of five receptions.
Running Back: $6,400 Christian McCaffery- McCaffery hasn’t gotten much going in the ground game, but he has been a major factor in the passing game. In a game that the Panthers will most likely be playing from behind, McCaffery will get plenty of check-down looks and should out-snap Jonathan Stewart.
Wide Receiver: $6,900 Chris Hogan- Tom Brady is a lock to throw for a couple of touchdowns, but someone will have to catch those passes. Hogan has developed good chemistry with Brady, which has led to an increase in targets. He is sort of a boom-or-bust option, but the potential for a big game is too immense to pass up on.
Wide Receiver: $5,500 Robert Woods- Keep in mind that Woods will only be a strong play if Sammy Watkins ends up sidelined with a concussion. Last week Woods had a huge game and you can expect more of the same this week.
Wide Receiver: $8,000 A.J. Green- This play is a bit better for cash games since ownership on Green will be very high. Nevertheless, he should be able to slice up an inferior Chicago Bears defense, making him a very strong play in general. Green should receive a huge portion of the targets, which gives him a strong floor.
Tight End: $5,200 Evan Engram- Engram has had a strong start to the season and his success should continue against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers. The Buccaneers defense got obliterated by the Minnesota Vikings last week.
Kicker: $5,100 Stephen Gostkowski- The New England Patriots offense should be able to score at ease against the Carolina Panthers, which means Bryant will have plenty of opportunities to put points on the board.
Defense: $5,400 Seattle Seahawks- The Seahawks draw a mouth-watering matchup with an Andrew Luck-less Colts team. The Legion of Boom should be able to come up with a few interceptions, and will hopefully take one to the house.
