DraftKings Start of the Week
Matt Ryan – ATL vs. GB ($7,000)

Somehow, the Packers have allowed the 10th fewest fantasy points to opposing quarterbacks. Wait, I know how, they’ve faced Blake Bortles, Sam Bradford, and Matt Barkley in three of their first six games… Matt Ryan has 514 less passing yards than those three combined (He’s #1). Factor in the injuries the Packers are facing in their secondary, and you have what should be another huge day from Mr. Ryan.

Sit of the Week
Marcus Mariota – TEN vs. JAC

Mariota has had three straight quality performances, but you may want to limit your expectations for him this week. The Jags pass defense has been strangely solid, and they’ve done a good job containing tight ends; which is pretty much all Mariota has to throw to. I don’t think he’s a terrible option, but you can definitely expect a drop off from the numbers he’s put up the past few weeks.
