Drew Brees against the 49ers porous defense? Yes, please. The same goes for picking two of the most talented running backs in the NFL regardless of who their opponents might be. Then again, the same could be said about rolling with Julio Jones and Mike Evans -- even if it means picking two guys playing in the notoriously lower-scoring Thursday Night Football matchup. Kyle Rudolph is a tight end not named Zach Ertz who is playing the Lions. Start 'em! The Cowboys facing the Browns feels like a contrarian play that could have some legs while Justin Tucker could get a few shots to produce against the rival Steelers.
Looks like Gelhar is starting to feel more confident in the Packers offense after Rodgers' big game last week. There's never been a reason to not feel confident in Ezekiel Elliott while the Raiders run defense gives reason to feel good about Devontae Booker. Matchups be damned -- Antonio Brown and Odell Beckham are just good at football (though Brown's matchup isn't bad). Kyle Rudolph will be the latest to test The Doyle Rules against the Lions while the Chiefs will try to feast on the Jaguars. Justin Tucker at kicker? Sure, why not?
Maybe Harmon believes in the resurgence of the Packers offense or just has no faith in the Colts. Either way, Aaron Rodgers is a go! Le'Veon Bell gets a nod as the centerpiece of a banged-up offense while Carlos Hyde against the Saints is a difficult matchup to ignore. Harmon is going with a pair of top receivers on opposite sides of the same game. Is Dez back to being Dallas' pass-catcher and can Terrelle Pryor continue to be a fantasy revelation? Delanie Walker against the Chargers is a quality play as is the Chiefs D/ST versus the dysfunctional Jaguars offense. And Cairo Santos.
Two weeks in a row Aaron Rodgers has treated us well in the Perfect Challenge. Why not go for three against the woeful Colts? I'm also rolling with Cowboys running backs past and present because they've both been good and have outstanding matchups. I have no QB fears in Pittsburgh with Antonio Brown and expect an overcorrection of targets with Mike Evans. Kyle Rudolph + Lions defense = ALL of the fantasy points. I'm testing the resilience of the Panthers defense with a matchup against the offensively-challenged Rams. And Cairo Santos.
