For a two game slate, there are actually a lot of options this week. Expect Tom Brady & Cam Newton to be the top two owned QBs so I will go with Palmer, who offers similar upside. Michael Floyd‘s price is too cheap and he will be heavily owned. I tried to fade him and ride with just Larry Fitzgerald & John Brown, but I was unable to afford that.
Rob Gronkowski‘s price is too close to Greg Olsen‘s so I went with the Gronk. I had to throw one wildcard pick in there at the flex position so I chose Devin Funchess at $3,200. In order to eliminate Funchess, I would have needed to remove Julian Edelman and David Johnson to perhaps put a mix of C.J. Anderson/Larry Fitzgerald/Emmanuel Sanders. I did not want all three Cardinal WRs, but also do not want to be a part of the Denver offense.
Good luck this weekend!
