Here's the lineup I'm using:
Cam Newton, QB, Panthers ($8,500): I think any quarterback not named Peyton Manning is good here. I originally tried a lineup with Carson Palmer, but I couldn't make it work.
Jonathan Stewart, RB, Panthers ($7,000): My plan was to have C.J. Anderson here, but I was able to afford Jonathan Stewart after switching from Rob Gronkowski to Greg Olsen. I'm not in love with any running back this week, except for...
James White, RB, Patriots ($6,400): James White isn't very talented, but with Denver's pass rush bound to bother New England's offensive line, Brady will have to check the ball down to James White quite a bit.
Julian Edelman, WR, Patriots ($7,800): I liked Julian Edelman at this price last week, and I'll roll with him again for the same reason I like James White.
Michael Floyd, WR, Cardinals ($7,500): Carolina's secondary can be beaten, so I'm doubling up on the two Arizona receivers who won't be covered by Josh Norman.
John Brown, WR, Cardinals ($6,500): John Brown is probably the top value play this week.
Greg Olsen, TE, Panthers ($7,000): Why not roll with the best tight end not named Rob Gronkowski? I originally selected Gronk, but couldn't make it work.
Chandler Catanzaro, K, Cardinals ($4,600): The cheapest kicker this week is a viable option, so why not?
Patriots Defense ($4,600): Same goes with the cheapest defense, which could pick off a couple of Peyton Manning's wobbly ducks.
