Aaron Rodgers: I don’t love his price, but he’s in a dome and he’s cheaper than Thomas Brady. Rodgers has the best passer rating in the history of human beings playing off things. This game is probably my favorite to grab players from this week.
BenJarvus Green-Ellis: He had a nice game the last time vs. the Jets with a couple touchdowns while running out the clock on a blowout. Much will depend on the flow of the game since Belichick is all about situational football, but The Law Firm will get the goal line looks at the very least and his price is right.
James Starks: The last time I rode a decent outing by Jimmy Starks into the next week he jacked me up good. It seems that he has actually won the job and should get the bulk of the early down carries. He showed the ability to create room and get the extra yard and he has freshish legs. Add to that his price allows me to have Rodgers and I’ll take him.
Johnny Knox: He put up his best yardage numbers of the season with 5 receptions and 120 yards last time they met the Seasapsuckers. Yes, these are two different teams now, or at least both want you to believe that, but Knox is the biggest threat they have in the passing game and Seattle has had trouble defending the pass.
Greg Jennings: After getting shut down last week I think we’ll see Jennings at least get plenty of chances. Last time they met, Jennings had 5 reception for 119 yards.
Santonio Holmes: I don’t see Belichick giving the Jets much room to run and making Sanchez beat them. I also believe the Patriots will get up on the Jets and they’ll have to throw it in the 3rd/4th quarters. A quick slant to Holmes can go a long ways.
Rob Gronkowski: This is a tough one with AHer returning, but I’m hoping that Brady and friends have come to trust Gronk a little more going into the playoffs. I probably would have went with Gonzalez here, but couldn’t afford him. Oh the cross us paupers bear.
Matt Bryant: Going with the dome again.
New England Patriots: The Pats have been crazy efficient holding onto the ball and taking the ball away. And they have been the best fantasy defense for the last half of the season. I don’t trust Sanchez in Foxborough.
