Tom Brady and Aaron Rodgers are essentially ‘1A’ and ‘1B’…Brady gets the slight edge–Khalil Mack being an ‘X factor in the match against the Pack…Drew Brees should be able to pick apart the Buccaneers secondary…Philip Rivers gets a big bump up this week as he has any choice of weapons against a Chiefs secondary that looked non-existent this preseason…DeShaun Watson against the Patriots and Cam Newton against the Cowboys are the types of plays that can win you your week with their tremendous upside…moving Russel Wilson down to 8th might be eye-popping, but I’m a believer in the Denver Broncos defense and I think they limit the Seahawks offense a great deal…I like Andy Dalton a great deal this week, so he is elevated up to the 14th position…Nick Foles ranked 15th I’m sure is surprising–I believe Doug Pederson will be prepared on Thursday evening…there will be better days ahead for Patrick Mahomes–a tough matchup at the Chargers limits his ranking to 17th at the QB position.
