*** This game is being played in Charlotte where they are on a Tropical Storm Warning. Strong probability of rain throughout the game along with strong winds. I have downgraded both QBs to fringe QB1s, better used as QB2s in Superflex. Follow me on Twitter @theFellowKGB if you have start/sit questions!
