Well here we go. Our first HUGE Sunday Blitz of the season and what a prize pool we have on offer! Across 14 games, 28 teams will go head to head in search of their first win of the season. It is always tough to build the ultimate line up for these sorts of slates but the time and effort is worth it come full time when you are sitting pretty on top of that leader board!
There is some serious hype surrounding top draft picks and the return of some superstars from injury makes this first week all the more exciting. With so much talent on display, finding that point of difference might prove tough. Luckily I’m here to help with some of my best picks for the first $15,000 Sunday Blitz of the season.
Case Keenum ($6,400)
The newly signed Keenum will look to add a new dynamic to the Broncos offense this season. Matches up well against Seattle who’s defense will struggle to keep Denver at bay if Keenum can get hot. His receivers are quality and could be the spark Denver need.
James Conner ($4,900)
Really like this guy as a pick this week especially if Leveon Bell is out which is being reported. He will get through a huge workload and is at a bottom dollar price. Plenty of upside at this price and could be a nice point of difference for your lineup this week.
Antonio Brown ($8,900)
Not a ground breaking selection but I think you need to have AB in your team this week. His combination with ‘Big Ben’ is lethal and can spark the Steelers to a win. Brown is a fantasy point machine and I am backing him to have a big season.
Austin Seferian-Jenkins ($4,500)
Could be a risk taking Jenkins this week as he is in doubt with an injury. In saying this, if he does play your going to get a great output from him. This looks like a good match up with the Giants struggles against passing plays well known. It could be ASJ who is the beneficiary of this.
Wil Lutz ($4,800)
I think Lutz is going to one of the busiest kickers this week as the Saints go up against the struggling Buccaneers. If the game is as one sided as predicted than he should give you a solid output.
