Los Angeles Rams v Arizona Cardinals
.
Here are the Team Defense rankings for Super Bowl LIII.
.
1. Los Angeles Rams – Aaron Donald and Suh’s interior pressure could make Tom Brady mortal.
2. New England Patriots – This could go either way. Never count out Belichick’s defense.

Gronk first down
.
Here are the tight end rankings for Super Bowl LIII.
.
1. Rob Gronkowski, New England Patriots – Perhaps Gronk’s last game. Easily the biggest fantasy mismatch between Gronk and his counterparts.

3. Tyler Higbee, Los Angeles Rams

Julian Edelman
.
Here are the wide receiver rankings for Super Bowl LIII.
.
1. Julian Edelman, New England Patriots – 16 catches for 247 yards in two playoff games. When Gronk is healthy, he’s nearly impossible to cover.
2. Brandin Cooks, Los Angeles Rams – Revenge on the mind of the former Pats’ receiver? 11 catches in two games. Big play ability.
2. Robert Woods, Los Angeles Rams – 12 catches in two games.
4. Chris Hogan, New England Patriots – Seems to pop up when you least expect it.
5. Josh Reynolds, Los Angeles Rams – 4 catches for 74 yards last game. One catch in first playoff game.
6. Phillip Dorsett, New England Patriots – TD could push him up higher.
7. Cordarrelle Patterson, New England Patriots – Patriots could do

Here are the running back rankings for Super Bowl LIII.
.
1. Todd Gurley, Los Angeles Rams – Should be healthier than he’s been in a while. Big factor in this one.
2. James White, New England Patriots – Has a tendency to come up in big games.
3. Sony Michel, New England Patriots – Could easily be the top choice in this one if the Pats can establish the run.
4. C.J. Anderson, Los Angeles Rams – Not likely to get the carries he needs to get rolling.
5. Rex Burkhead, New England Patriots – You never know, it could be Burkhead with a couple of TDs to be a factor.

Tom Brady tunnel Jared Goff
.
Super Bowl LIII features the G.O.A.T. and draft pick #199 and a number one draft pick QB that survived Jeff Fisher to thrive under Sean McVay.
.
Brady has averaged 345.5 yards and a touchdown and a pick in two playoff wins. He has yet to be sacked and despite the lofty passing yardage, the focus has been on the running game for New England. Goff has averaged 241.5 yards and half a touchdown and half a pick in his two wins as the Rams have also dialed up their rushing attack.
.
This is Brady’s ninth time playing on the biggest stage in professional sports. He has averaged 322 yards and 2.25 touchdowns per Super Bowl.

I dropped both Championship Games. The Saints should have won and I took the Chiefs, in part because I didn’t want to jinx the Patriots. I am hoping New England can take home number six, but I think Aaron Donald will make life uncomfortable for Tom Brady. The rest should also allow Todd Gurley to perform more like himself.
