Remember to always check the injury reports before finalizing your rosters.  If you have any last minute roster questions feel free to ask @BillLatin.


Defensive Line

1-Khalil Mack OAK @ ATL… Mack’s floor is amazing and his ceiling will come.

2-Ziggy Ansah DET vs TEN… I like Ziggy to bounce back this week.

3-Aaron Donald LA vs SEA… He is a top option every week.  SEA O-Line is horrible

4-Robert Quinn LA vs SEA… See Aaron Donald

5- JJ Watt HOU vs KC… Watt is a must start each week, but it will take a few games to get going

6- Carlos Dunlap CIN @ PIT… Big Ben is hard to sack, but Dunlap should be good for one

7- Everson Griffen MIN vs GB… He is one of my favorite discounted DL1 players

8- Jabaal Sheard NE vs MIA… He is the best they have at the moment.  I still like Trey Flowers to stash.

9- Fletcher Cox PHI @ CHI… He should get going against a mediocre line

10-Michael Bennet SEA @ LA… They will stack the box.  SEA will put up points and LA will have to pass

11- Cameron Jordan NO @ NYG…  Had a poor showing in week one.  Should bounce back

12- Devin Taylor DET @ TEN… My surprise DL to sneak in the DL1 conversation this week.

13- Jason Pierre-Paul NYG vs NO… He looked good in week one despite his stats

14- Calais Campbell AZ vs TB…  Winston is good, but holds the ball a bit.  I expect pressure.

15- Danielle Hunter MIN vs GB… This guy is no fluke.  Snap count will continue to rise.

16- Olivier Vernon NYG vs NO… He and JPP should take turns having big weeks.  Can not double both

17- Geno Atkins CIN @ PIT… His floor is great

18- Robert Ayers TB @ AZ… Ayers could have a good day against an AZ line in flux

19- Cameron Heyward PIT vs CIN… He had a quiet week one, but should do well vs AZ

20- Stephen Tuitt PIT vs CIN…  One of them will have a good day

21- Ndamukong Suh MIA @ NE… Has yet to earn his paycheck but could get to Jimmy G

22- Chris Long NE vs MIA… This is more about snap count.  The ceiling is not super high

23- Brandon Graham PHI @ CHI…  Eagles put points up and Bears will have to as well.  Opportunities.

24- Kawann Short CAR vs SF…  He is coming into his own and is close to being a weekly start

Others-  Gerald McCoy TB @ AZ; Conner Barwin PHI @ CHI;  Cliff Avril SEA vs LA; Mario Williams MIA @ NE; Vinny Curry PHI @ CHI; Charles Johnson CAR vs SF; Jurrell Casey TEN @ DET; William Hayes LA vs SEA; Linval Joseph MIN vs GB; Derek Wolfe DEN vs IND; Clinton McDonald TB @ AZ; Carl Nassib CLE vs BAL



1- Navorro Bowman SF @ CAR…  Should continue to be one of the top LB options

2- Luke Keuchly CAR vs SF… When healthy will be in my top 3 each week

3- Alec Ogletree LA vs SEA… Seahawks will look to run a ton and Alec will produce.

4- Jamie Collins NE vs MIA… No Hightower means he will get the lions share of work

5- Kwon Alexander TB @ AZ… I am going to catch heat, but he will stay ahead of Lavonte for now

6- Lavonte David TB @ AZ… These two will be neck and neck all season

7- Sean Lee DAL @ WAS…  He looked good in week one and should continue to be great

8- Bobby Wagner SEA @ LA… They will look to get Gurley going and Wags will be there to stop him

9- Telvin Smith JAC @ SD… I am anxious to see how this game unfolds.  Should get plenty of tackles

10- Danny Trevathan CHI vs PHI… Matthews should look to be heavily involved.  Danny is an LB1

11- Karlos Dansby CIN @ PIT… Deangelo was great.  Cinci D will get a ton of work

12- Brandon Marshall DEN vs IND…  How will luck do vs this defense?  Will find out soon!

13-  Derrick Johnson KC @ HOU…  Should see lots of Lamar Miller.  Nice floor.

14- D’Qwell Jackson IND @ DEN…  Is he fading?  My bet is just a bit.

15- Eric Kendricks MIN vs GB… I struggle where to rank him.  High LB2 seems right to me

16- Deone Bucannon AZ vs TB… Look for Deone to step up and have a big game this week

17- Jerrell Freeman CHI vs PHI… I was very impressed with his motor in game one

18- C.J. Mosely BAL @ CLE… Did not look good week one.  Let’s hope he gets on track

19- Ryan Shazier PIT vs CIN… IF IF IF healthy should be productive.

20- Paul Posluszny JAC @ SD… With Jack playing limited touches he is a great start

21- Demario Davis CLE vs BAL… One of my favorite bargain LB’s this season

22- Will Compton WAS vs DAL… I am starting to dig him a bit.

23- Lawrence Timmons PIT vs CIN… If Shazier does not go he bumps up a bit for me

24- Mark Barron LA vs SEA… Should be plenty of tackle opportunities

Others- Denzel Perryman SD vs JAC; Kiko Alonso MIA @ NE; Jordan Hicks PHI @ CHI; Malcolm Smith OAK vs ATL; Tahir Whitehead DET vs TEN; Sio Moore IND @ DEN; Manti Te’o SD vs JAC; Justin March KC @ HOU; Thomas Davis CAR vs SF; Mason Foster WAS vs DAL; Jonathan Casillas NYG vs NO; Anthony Barr MIN vs GB


Defensive Backs

1- Reshad Jones MIA @ NE… I will not make the mistake of discounting him out anymore

2- Landon Collins NYG vs NO… My top ranked dynasty DB should get exhausted by game end

3- Morgan Burnett GB @ MIN… I believe he will be in top 5 weekly

4- Tyrann Mathieu AZ vs TB… He will be all over the field.  They will need him

5- Harrison Smith MIN vs GB… How much will GB run vs pass?  He could underperform a bit

6- Jonathan Cyprien JAC @ SD… Rivers is missing Allen.  Will be some WR mis cues

7- T.J. McDonald LA vs SEA… He has such a nice floor

8- Eric Weddle BAL @ CLE… Look for McCown to air it out way more.  Weddle is back!

9- Kenny Vacarro NO @ NYG…  This looks to be a shoot out 42-37 Giants

10- Tony Jefferson AZ vs TB… Jefferson is quietly becoming a DB1 with Deone LB designation

11- HaHa Clinton-Dix GB @ MIN… With Burnett playing more up front will have lots of opps

12- Reggie Nelson OAK vs ATL… This is another shoot out game.  37-34 OAK.

13- Barry Church DAL @ WAS… I believe Cousins gets it going a bit.  Should rack up stats

14- Ibraheim Campbell CLE vs BAL…  Look for him to be starting in your lineups each week

15- Antoine Bethea SF @ CAR…  The old guy can still get it done

16- Da’Norris Searcy TEN @ DET… Lions are spreading the field and playing faster.  Great matchup

17- Eric Berry KC @ HOU…  He will not have a big ceiling but should be solid

18- Mike Adams IND @ DEN… If Indy puts up points this is a good call.  If DEN shuts them down it’s not

19- T.J. Ward DEN vs IND… Luck will have to throw the ball 45 times in this one

20- Kurt Coleman CAR vs SF…  Gabbert is still Gabbert…

21- Deangelo Hall WAS vs DAL…  Cousins will get it going and Dak will need to throw

22- Malcolm Jenkins PHI @ CHI… This could be higher scoring than people think.  Give me the over

23- Shawn Williams CIN @ PIT…  Ben will have his way with the CBs

24- Chris Conte TB @ AZ… Palmer gets it going and Conte has a busy day

Others- Bashaud Breeland WAS vs DAL; Kam Chancellor SEA @ LA; Earl Thomas SEA @ LA; Ron Parker KC @ HOU; Marcus Peters KC @ HOU; Devin McCourty NE vs MIA; Rashad Johnson TEN @ DET; Kemal Ishmael ATL @ OAK; Jalen Ramsey JAC @ SD; Trae Waynes MIN vs GB; Glover Quinn DET vs TEN; Vernon Hargreaves TB @ AZ
