Ben Roethlisberger (Pittsburgh Steelers) $6800
Following a great fantasy performance against the elite Denver Broncos defense last week, Ben Roethlisberger should continue the momentum against the horrible Baltimore Ravens pass defense. The Pittsburgh Steelers arguably have the best offense in fantasy football and Roethlisberger is the anchor with a delicious matchup. Big Ben is the best play at quarterback this week and has a great price.
Blake Bortles (Jacksonville Jaguars) $6500
Blake Bortles is currently averaging the sixth most DraftKings points per game at the quarterback position and the New Orleans Saints have the worst defense in the NFL. In one of the biggest surprises of the season, Bortles is a legitimate fantasy starter and is officially trustworthy. New Orleans can’t stop anyone and Bortles is one of the best overall plays at the position this week.
Ryan Fitzpatrick (New York Jets) $5200
The New York Jets are playing their biggest game of the season against the New England Patriots and Ryan Fitzpatrick has emerged as a good fantasy quarterback. Fitzpatrick delivered a great fantasy game against the Patriots earlier this season and will have the home field advantage this time around. New York are in must-win mode in the wild card race and will have to throw the ball frequently this week.
