Julian Edelman ($7700) Patriots vs. Jaguars – Edelman is a top 5 WR through two weeks averaging 22.3 points per week yet is still priced down 9th among all wide receivers. In a cupcake match up versus the lowly Jaguars, Brady and company should have no problem racking up points and yards through the air as it truly seems they are out to prove everyone wrong this season. Jacksonville hasn’t been horrible against the pass this season but I don’t think it matters right now with this Patriot offense. They are clicking on all cylinders and Edelman will continue to be a fantasy stud especially in leagues that award points for catches.

Allen Robinson ($6600) Jaguars vs. Patriots – Robinson blew up last week for 30.5 fantasy points racking up 155 yards and 2 scores against Miami. After leaving week one with a minor knee injury, he looked no worse for the wear this past week and showed a good repertoire with QB Blake Bortles. As we saw many times last season, Jacksonville plays from behind and will often rack up plenty of garbage stats in the third and fourth quarters seeing mostly prevent defenses. You can bet that New England will be scoring and the Jaguars will be chasing in this one. Robinson has a great shot for another 100 yard day this Sunday.

Brandon Marshall ($7400) Jets vs. Eagles – The Ryan Fitzpatrick to Brandon Marshall combination was probably not in the dreams of fantasy owners preseason this year. However, Fitpatrick seems to have found a high confidence level in his new target and continues to find him. Marshall also continues to be priced down compared to other elite receivers and has easily paid off his salary in both games this season. The Eagles defense is suspect and I expect the Jets to put up numbers again this weekend with Marshall being the catalyst. He is just too big and too hard to guard around the end zone and playing with a quarterback that continues to feed him the ball. 100 yards and another score is in the cards for this still too cheap weapon.

Others I Like – Jarvis Landry ($7600), Demaryius Thomas ($8400), Doug Baldwin ($6000)
