5 of 8

Andrew Luck, DEN (72%, 19) – Is facing the top pass defense in the NFL and Luck just hasn’t looked like himself so far this season. There have been flashes, but he’s making poor decisions with the ball and his O-line isn’t giving him enough time to find open receivers. It’s hard to bench a guy that you used a top pick on, but it’s the right move this week.

Cam Newton, GB (62%, 21) – The Panthers are undefeated and Newton has played well, but it hasn’t translated to fantasy success. Newton is averaging under 20 points per game over the last four and has a tough match up this week against the Packers.

Ryan Tannehill, @BUF (62%, 17) – After the Phins coaching change Tannehill was looking like an every week lock for fantasy lineups, then last week’s dud against the Patriots happened (8 points?). I just don’t trust him enough to start him even with a decent match-up.
