START ‘EM QB Carson Wentz (PHI) – I like Carson Wentz this week not only because the Eagles’ offense is rolling, but because of the injuries in the Redskins’ defense as well. The Skins are expecting to be without Jonathan Allen and Josh Norman this Monday, so expect Carson Wentz to take advantage of that. RB Leonard...

MUST STARTS: QB Tom Brady (NE) – Brady has already racked up eight touchdowns and thrown for over 1,000 yards throughout three games without an interception. This week he faces an immobile Cam Newton and the 2-1 Panthers who have only scored one touchdown over the last two weeks. Do I need to say anything else? RB Kare...

WHO I LIKE QB, Drew Brees (NO) – Brees continues to dominate as a standout fantasy starting quarterback, not just because of his ability to throw well, but because he is able to throw the ball to any target.

WHO I LIKE QB, Blake Bortles (JAX) – After struggling to get it going against the Chiefs, Bortles will look to rebound against the 5-3 Texans. Houston leads the AFC South right now, but an Osweiler-led offense is anything but promising. Expect a lot of passes out of Bortles, and a lot of garbage time. RB, Melvin...

WHO I LIKE QB, Aaron Rodgers (GB) – After throwing four touchdowns and rushing 60 yards against the Atlanta Falcons, Rodgers has earned the must start status this week. Rodgers managed to torch Atlanta’s secondary, even without Lacy, Cobb or Montgomery. A matchup against the beat-up Indianapolis Colts is very appeal...

WHO I LIKE QB, Marcus Mariota (TEN) – The Heisman Trophy winner torched a decent Miami secondary this weekend and has impressed me by displaying his ability to scramble and throw the ball downfield well. Start him against the winless Browns this weekend. RB, Theo Riddick (DET) – There were a lot of concerns ...

WHO I LIKE RB, DeMarco Murray (TEN) – Before the beginning of the season, I had reservations about Murray’s production and role in Tennessee. But now it’s very clear that he is the go-to guy for short yardage and red zone situations. Keep starting him. QB, Tom Brady (NE) – On Sunday at midnight, NFL ...
