Week 7

These are my early selections at this point in the week. I will try and update any new selections or additional thoughts later in the week.

Quarterback Plays

Tom Brady vs Falcons: $36
There are some interesting ways to go at QB this week, but paying up and locking in the production from Brady makes a lot of sense as a home favorite in a Super Bowl rematch with a monster 55 point total. Brady is the Pro Football Focus number one graded quarterback, leads the league with 1959 yards passing, and is second in the league in touchdown passes and passing attempts. I love the fact that he is at home and facing a Falcons D that ranks 27th in total DVOA, 22nd in DVOA vs. the pass, and 19th in DVOA vs. the tigt end. He should be able to get plenty of production to Gronk and working with Amendola in the slot, where the Falcons are very vulnerable.
