In my opinion Fitz at QB, because he has a little bit more to prove and a more pass happy offense without Fred Jackson, and CJ Spiller is involved in alot of short pass like handoffs. And at TE you have to go with Graham, Gron always has the threat of Hernandez getting more of the workload.

I like Fitz, shootout in this game and big ben is playing a good browns pass defense on a short week. I'd go with Gronk in this game, not sure how anyone can sit him with his past 4 weeks, Graham is still a great play but the bigger upside here is Gronk. Good luck

I would play fitz this week.. they are passing the ball more without jackson, so he should have no problem against a suspect chargers d

At TE I would play Graham, Brady has too many weapons. Graham is Brees favorite target

While I don't trust Fitz the most anymore at QB, this matchup is pretty good for him. They're throwing the ball a ton, and he'll most likely get decent numbers, even if just in garbage time. Ben on the other hand doesn't have the best matchup, despite them not being very efficient running the ball. Ben will probably be a safer play (200 or so yards, TD or 2), but Fitz if you're looking for more potential.

For TE, I'd definitely go with Gronk. Second in TE red zone targets, and he's on fire. I also have to think they'll feed him the ball to break the TE TD record.

I'm leaning towards Fitz and Graham. First doesn't have FJax and will need to pass. I don't think Ben will chuck it more than 15 times.

Then there's just no way you sit Graham. He's Brees' #1 target and Gronk is part of the Pats machine that could decide to start a CFL player and make him #1.
