Andrew Luck (Indianapolis Colts) $7600
Returning last week after missing two consecutive games due to injury, Andrew Luck looked great for fantasy purposes. While he was a little rusty, Luck delivered 30.98 DraftKings points and was in sync with his top wide receivers T.Y. Hilton and Donte Moncrief. Luck has a tremendous matchup against the awful New Orleans Saints pass defense and should have another big game reminding us why he was considered an elite fantasy QB entering the season.
Carson Palmer (Arizona Cardinals) $6700
Carson Palmer has been an extremely consistent choice at QB on DraftKings showcasing he has a very high floor. Monday night should be one of Palmer’s best games of the season as he’ll face the Baltimore Ravens. Baltimore has given up the most points to opposing fantasy quarterbacks this season and are facing one of the best passing games in the league. With Aaron Rodgers on a bye and Tom Brady facing the Jets, Palmer is the top overall fantasy QB this week.
Philip Rivers (San Diego Chargers) $6500
Over the last three weeks, Philip Rivers has thrown for a total of 1,226 yards with 7 touchdowns and 1 interception. Rivers is on fire and doesn’t look to be cooling down this week. The Oakland Raiders pass defense has not been very impressive and Rivers will get enough opportunities to have another big fantasy game. The momentum, matchup and price all make Rivers a very good play.
