QB: Peyton Manning, Broncos
NFL.com QB scoring rank: No. 5. Matchup: Chiefs
It was between him and Tom Brady. The Pats are playing the Jets, who have a battered and bruised secondary (entire team). The Broncos are playing the Chiefs who are, you guessed it, the Chiefs.
WR: A.J. Green, Bengals
NFL.com WR scoring rank: No. 1
I wanted to take Andre Johnson, but I don't think he will do it again this week. I'll go with A.J. Green at home against the Raaaaydahs (cheesy Chris Berman voice).
RB: Adrian Peterson, Vikings
NFL.com RB scoring rank: No. 3
He's AP, and he's pretty much bionic.
QB: Matt Schaub, Texans
NFL.com QB scoring rank: No. 13. Matchup: Lions
Schaub had a monster game a week ago, and while I don't think he'll duplicate that (527 yards, five TDs), he does face a Lions secondary that yields a lot of big passing days. WR: Andre Johnson, Texans
NFL.com WR scoring rank: No. 13.
Go big or go home, right, Perk? You might think I'm cheapening it by taking the guy you thought about grabbing, but what else did you expect? We'll know by the end of Thanksgiving how it worked.
NFL.com RB scoring rank: No. 13.
As long as I'm doubling down on the Texans, I might as well gamble on the streakiest fantasy running back in history.
Winner: Omar Ansari -- Drew Brees (20.8), Calvin Johnson (18.3), Doug Martin (14.1). Total: 53.2
Loser: Michael Rand -- Ryan Fitzpatrick (8.2), James Jones (3.3), Alfred Morris (8.3). Total: 19.8
