Justin: Julian Edelman vs Tampa Bay Buccaneers
With Danny Amendola still out and the rookie receivers dropping passes left and right, Tom Brady will look to Edelman all night. He may not rack up the yards but he’ll rack up the receptions, which is about all you can ask for from your PPR Player of the week.

David: Jordan Cameron @ Minnesota Vikings
Cameron is another one of the popular basketball-converted TEs in the NFL. He currently ranks second among TEs in both targets and yardage to Jimmy Graham. His athleticism is obvious to everyone watching.

Vertical threat Josh Gordon returns from his two-game suspension, but there are still plenty of targets to go around with the recent trade of Trent Richardson to Indianapolis. The Browns will also be starting Brian Hoyer this week since Brandon Weeden injured his thumb, so they’ll more than likely be playing catch up for most of the game.

Matt: Julian Edelman vs Tampa Bay Buccaneers
With Rob Gronkowski sitting again this week, Edelman has placed himself into PPR gold territory.  He had 13 grabs for only 78 yards but Brady trusts no one but him on that offense.  Look for Tom to go to him often and early.  I’d say you can count him in for 10-plus catches again this week.
