Atlanta at Los Angeles
QB Jared Goff: Don’t be fooled by Goff’s soft matchup here. You can find better options on the waiver wire.
RB Todd Gurley: Maybe it’s foolish, but I’m trusting Gurley this week against a depleted Falcons defense, and one that allows the third-most fantasy points to opposing RBs. I lack confidence in the former 10th overall pick, but this might be the day he produces.
WR Kenny Britt: Britt is proving to be a safe play more often than not. Atlanta is without star CB Desmond Trufant. Britt belongs in the flex.
QB Matt Ryan: You’ve come this far with Ryan, you’re starting him now. He’s in line for a good day and should remain your QB1. Unless, of course, Aaron Rodgers is on the waiver wire. But if that’s the case, you should immediately look for a new league.
RB Devonta Freeman: Freeman is on fire. With four touchdowns in his past two games, start the third-year pro with confidence.
RB Tevin Coleman: It’s the Devonta Freeman show in the Atlanta backfield. Coleman should continue to sit until he gives you a reason to start him.
WR Julio Jones: If Julio is good to go, he’s your WR1.
WR Taylor Gabriel: In need of a high-upside flex? Gabriel can be the guy. He’s found the end zone four times in his past five games.
