Brett:

I really like a Carson Palmer/John Brown stack against a very underwhelming Ravens defense this weekend. The Cardinals' passing attack has been very friendly to me this season, so I'll keep rolling with that. At running back, I'm a big fan of both Todd Gurley and Latavius Murray as every-down backs for their respective teams going against soft run defenses in Cleveland and San Diego, respectively.

With receivers and tight ends, Hilton and Julio should be nice high volume options against New Orleans and Tennessee. Crockett Gillmore might luck himself into a touchdown or two as a redzone weapon for Joe Flacco as well. I like his odds, at least.

When it comes to special teams, I'm going to keep my same low cost option that I've had for most of the season, Andrew Franks, and I'm betting big on a return touchdown from an Eagles special teams unit that always seems to break big plays at the best possible moments.

Ryan:

I join Brett in the Carson Palmer love with him facing the Ravens. Chris Ivory has rushed for over 300 yards over his last two games and how faces a Patriots defense without Vince Wilfork -- the Jets will need to keep the ball out of Brady's hand. Todd Gurley has also rushed for 300 yards over his last two games and is coming off the bye -- I'll take it.

Hopkins has been playing out of mind his last three games; he was highest-priced player in FanDuel this week, but I'm a homer so I went Nuk over Julio Jones.

I'm going with Cameron because the Texans have shown they can be beat with the tight end, so I go with what I know.
