League Settings: Not Specified
QB: Carson Palmer, Andrew Luck, Matthew Stafford
RB: Dalvin Cook, Carlos Hyde, Eddy Lacy
WR: Antonio Brown, Larry Fitzgerald, DeVante Parker, Dez Bryant,
Sterling Sheppard, Kenny Galloday
TE: Greg Olsen
DEF: New York Giants
K: Matt Bryant
Matt’s Take: Ed, I think you’re in for a good week. Stafford stays hot in my eyes after his great week 1 performance. Dalvin Cook looks like a true RB1 in terms of usage in Minnesota and I like Carlos Hyde a lot more than Eddy Lacy. You’ve got three top 20 wide receivers for the week in my opinion in Antonio Brown, Larry Fitzgerald and DeVante Parker. I’m a big Kenny Golladay fan but I’m not comfortable starting him this week over any of your top four options. You’re only one deep at tight end, defense and kicker so those are easy choices.
League Settings: Superflex
QB: Carson Palmer, Jameis Winston, Carson Wentz
RB: Ezekiel Elliott, Isiah Crowell, Jonathan Stewart, Mark Ingram,
Jarvis Allen, David Johnson
WR: Demaryius Thomas, Alshon Jeffery, TY Hilton, Pierre Garcon, Tyrell Williams
TE: Kyle Rudolph, Charles Clay
K: Will Lutz
Matt’s Take: Isaac I think you have your lineup set the exact way that it should be. Carson Palmer gets to take on the helpless Colts defense and Winston gets to start his breakout 2017 this week. Your running backs are the smart play in your flex spot because I don’t trust TY Hilton in the other flex spot you have with Jacoby Brisett at QB. Kyle Rudolph is a TE1 play almost every week, even with Charles Clay and his hot week I still roll with Rudolph.
League Settings: RB/WR Flex spot and WR/TE Flex spot
QB: Matt Ryan, Jameis Winston
RB: Dovonte Freeman, Kareem Hunt, LeGarrett Blount,
Tevin Coleman, Darren McFadden, Shane Vereen
WR: Doug Baldwin, Larry Fitzgerald, Corey Coleman, Jamison Crowder,
TE: Evan Engram
K: Justin Tucker
Matt’s Take: Donald, you’ve got the perfect week to have the entire backfield in Atlanta. I’m expecting a shootout between Atlanta and Green Bay so I’m starting all three of Matt Ryan, Devonte Freeman and Tevin Coleman. Stacking the Falcons is a good idea this week. After the first week Kareem Hunt is almost as automatic of a start that you’ve got. I’d start all three WR1’s on their team, I’m expecting Larry Fitzgerald to get peppered with targets this week and Corey Coleman has looked like the next young breakout wide receiver.
League Settings: PPR, 5 Point Bonus for RB 100+ Rushing, Big Play TD Bonus
QB: Jameis Winston
RB: Marshawn Lynch, Isaiah Crowell, Tevin Coleman, Legarrette Blount,
WR: Antonio Brown, Davante Adams, TY Hilton, Rishard Matthews,
Corey Coleman, Josh Gordon
TE: Martellus Bennett
K: Blair Walsh
DEF: Carolina Panthers
Matt’s Take: Brian, this one is hard for me because I’m a huge Isaiah Crowell fan but like I mentioned earlier I’m expecting a shootout between Green Bay and Atlanta and with your league being a PPR league it gives Tevin Coleman a boost. The Baltimore defense shuts down opposing running backs and I think it’s a week to avoid Crowell. You still get to keep a Cleveland Brown in your lineup though (who would have thought anyone would be happy to say that?!) because I’d start Corey Coleman in your FLEX spot. DeShone Kizer showed he’s going to target Corey Coleman in week one and he’s one of the best pass catchers Cleveland has. With Jacoby Brisett starting in Indy, I’m shying away from TY Hilton.
League Settings: None Specified
QB: Russell Wilson, Alex Smith
RB: Ezekiel Elliott, LeVeon Bell, Theo Riddick
WR: AJ Green (Already Started), Doug Baldwin, Demaryius Thomas, Adam Thielen
DeVante Parker, Willie Snead
TE: Jordan Reed, Colby Fleener
K: Will Lutz
Matt’s Take: Barnowski, as big of a week that Alex Smith had, you’ve got to start Russell Wilson if you’ve got him. I’m expecting a bounce back from him this week against a weak San Francisco defense. You’ve got the number one and number two running backs this week, those are easy starts for me. I would have started AJ Green just like you did, I’d stack Doug Baldwin with Russell Wilson in your lineup against San Francisco. The surprise may come with starting DeVante Parker over Demaryius Thomas. Jay Cutler is going to target DeVante Parker a lot on Sunday, especially with Jason Verrett being ruled out for LA, I’m expecting big things from Parker this week. Jordan Reed is a top 3 tight end option for me any week he’s healthy enough to play so he’s my start at tight end for you.
League Settings: PPR
QB: Aaron Rodgers, Derek Carr
RB: Buck Allen, Thomas Rawls, Danny Woodhead
WR: Davante Adams, Doug Baldwin, Cooper Kupp, Larry Fitzgerald,
Donte Moncrief, Tyler Lockett
TE: Greg Olsen, Delanie Walker
Matt’s Take: Ezra, you don’t have a lot of options at running back with only two healthy options, so start Buck Allen and Thomas Rawls (you could probably drop Danny Woodhead at this point). Aaron Rodgers is going to be involved in a high scoring game against the Falcons so he’s the start for me. As impressive as Cooper Kupp looked in his week one debut I’m expecting Larry Fitzgerald to get a lot of targets in Sunday’s game and Davante Adams and Doug Baldwin are almost automatic starts. I lean Greg Olsen over Delanie Walker, Olsen is my 3rd rated tight end this week against Buffalo.
