I like BGE slightly over CJ. BGE has some fumble issues at the moment but CJ has some integrity issues. WR Simpson could well blow up, but Gonzo has an excellent matchup and more time on the field this year...I go Gonzo. League 2 I go FJax. Even with a tough match up, he'll get the ball. Mendy is an unknown and may be on a snap count. I'd go with the known quantity here, FJax.

BGE has a difficult match up vs Miami's strong run D and I don't start him unless I am desparate. CJ almost puts me in the desparate class, but not quite. I start CJ over BGE this week.

Both Gonzo and Simpson have great match ups this week, so Gonzo gets the start.

FJax over Mendy. The Steelers are throwing the ball, it is Mendy's first game back, and Mendy has Redman and Dwyer to split touches.

League 1: Agree with O1P, don't like the MIA matchup for BGE. I will take my chance with CJ, knowing full well he could go from hero (last week) to zero this week, much like he did last year after a big game.

As much as I have been on Simpson since the season has began, I like the ATL match up with WAS. WAS still giving up big points every week. They have also given up 3 TDs this season, no reason why Ryan shouldn't be able to find him this weekend.

Lastly, I too lean F Jackson. His match up is tougher, but I belieev BGE faces a tougher one vs MIA. I want to see how Mendy comes back in his first game. Not sold on the rushing game in PIT.
