Every week fantasy owners have tough decisions to make. Whether it is who to start in their FLEX spot or if they should start a less quality player against a weaker defense. I will be giving my fantasy followers my solo rankings based on PPR scoring. As an added bonus this week I will explain my favorite match up for each position.

My Favorite Wide Receiver Match Up

Robby Anderson at Buccaneers: Anderson has been on a roll over the past four weeks, averaging 15.4 fantasy points per game.

This week the Jets travel to Tampa Bay as they face the 31st ranked defense against opposing wide receivers, giving up an average of 39.9 fantasy points per game. With Jeremy Kerley starting his suspension this week, Anderson is in line to see an uptick in targets.

My Favorite Tight End Match Up

Furthermore, in his last two games against the Broncos, Gronkowski had 14 catches for 232 yards and two touchdowns.

My Favorite Kicker Match Up

Greg Zuerlein vs Texans: The Rams have the highest scoring offense this season, averaging 32.9 fantasy points per game and their kicker, Zuerlein is averaging 14.1 fantasy points per game; first among kickers. Furthermore, over his last five games, Zuerlein is averaging 18.8 fantasy points per game.

Zuerlein has been amazing for the Rams and should continue as the top kicker the rest of the season.
