Matt Ryan – $8,700 FD/$7,400 DK

Matty Ice was shredding the Eagles’ defense early in the Falcons home opener on NFL’s  Monday Night Football. Ryan threw for 298 yards, connecting with Julio Jones on both of his scores. Ryan and Jones beat Maxwell (a well respected DB) most of the night, last Monday. They should have little resistance from the New York Giants defense. The Giants yielded 356  passing yards to Tony Romo and the Cowboys, which were without Dez Bryant for a majority of the game. I see Ryan throwing for 300 yards and 3 TDs against the G Men.

Drew Brees – $8,900 FD/$7,800 DK


Lets not forget about this guy. Brees threw for 355 yards, with one TD against  the Arizona Cardinals. His numbers looked primed against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers; a defense that allowed Titans’ rookie quarterback Marcus Mariota look like a seasoned veteran. Look for Brees to shred that depleted Buccaneers defense with quick passes to Ingram and Cooks. Colston will be a nice target for Brees near the red zone.

Eli Manning – $8,000 FD /$7,100 DK


Easy Eli has a fantastic matchup this week against the NFL’s worst ranking pass defense, the Atlanta Falcons. The O/U for this game is 51 points! Eli had a dismal game in week 1, only throwing for 193 yards. With both Victor Cruz and OBJ on the gridiron for the Giants, Eli will be firing on all cylinders. The Falcons allowed 336 yards through the air in their first game. Its no surprise that most fantasy experts have “Little Brother” in their DFS lineups this week.
