San Diego Chargers at Denver Broncos - Thursday 8:25pm

San Diego Chargers

Philip Rivers - - While his numbers slipped against the Chiefs, he still tossed a pair of touchdowns. Faces a tough Broncos pass defense which kept him in check in 2013 and is arguably much improved. Still he has been rolling and like most teams may be forced to play keep up, which should give him upside. Still not the best matchup, so does have more risk than usual.

Ryan Mathews - - With the short week, it is unlikely he will be ready to go, so you can continue to forget about him.
Branden Oliver - - While he didn't exactly light it up against the Chiefs, he was solid. Though faces a tall order against a good Broncos defense, so definitely a riskier option. His receiving skills could make him worth taking a chance on.
Donald Brown - - Dealing with a concussion and the short turnaround won't help his cause, although he has already missed a good deal of time. Even if he can go, still the 2nd fiddle to Oliver, so I'd pass on him.
Ronnie Brown - - Injuries may get him a little action on the field, but likely will be way too little to consider him any threat to the fantasy football world.

Keenan Allen - - The Broncos kept him in check last season, holding him six catches for 70 yards, although one of the games he caught a pair of touchdowns (On only two receptions). He isn't rolling as well this season and the Broncos pass defense has improved. Chargers could be playing catch up, so that could help.
Malcom Floyd - - Has been inconsistent and with a tough matchup, it may be a tough week to rely on him. Although if the Chargers offense can roll like it has much of the season, he could get it done as the Chargers may be in keep up mode.
Eddie Royal - - Coming off a quiet game as his value is very touchdown dependent. With a tough matchup on the road, there may be a little too much risk to start him. Although he can find the end zone at any time.

Antonio Gates - - Another week, another touchdown. Faces a good defense on the road, and he hasn't been catching a ton of balls, so his value has been tied to touchdowns, which he has producing a lot of. Not the best matchup, but he can find the end zone against anyone.
Ladarius Green - - While he has the talent to produce, he just isn't getting the necessary looks, so hard to rely on him.

Nick Novak - - Continues to produce and the Chargers offense is on a roll, though face a defense that has been good, which could mean they are forced to settle for FG attempts.

San Diego Chargers - - The defense has been playing well, but this could be a tough game as they face one of the best offenses in all the land that is currently flying high.

Denver Broncos

Peyton Manning - - Congratulations on becoming the all-time touchdown leader and he continues to roll. Who cares about the matchup, if you have him, keep riding him. No thought required whatsoever.

C.J. Anderson - - The rookie Thompson is pushing him, but with Hillman rolling, hard to rely on any of the other Bronco RBs.
Juwan Thompson - - He just isn't getting quite enough touches to merit starting him, so I'd continue to look elsewhere.
Montee Ball - - Expected to be out again and with Hillman playing well, he could see fewer touches when he is back in the fold (Though he is expected to be option A, but may not be quite as busy).
Ronnie Hillman - - Coming off another strong performance and the Chargers have had some issues against the run. And with the Broncos passing game playing so well, they can't key on Hillman, so expect him to keep rolling this week and make it tough on the Broncos brass when Ball returns from injury.

Demaryius Thomas - - He has been on fire lately, so who cares who he is facing, start him without a second thought.
Emmanuel Sanders - - Found the end zone early on Sunday night, but then went quiet. With Manning throwing him the ball, he can go off any week. That being said, faces a good pass defense so if you are WR heavy, then maybe you can sit him (Though his upside is always pretty good).
Wes Welker - - Found the end zone, though still hasn't been really busy. Add in a tough matchup and you may want to look at other options. Still he can go off any week with Manning under center and the offense lighting it up.
Andre Caldwell - - His good performances are very rare with so many other options available to Manning, so he is just too risky to gamble on.

Julius Thomas - - Coming off a quiet game, but his upside is too large to every sit him. Keep riding the talent tight end who has the all-time touchdown leader throwing the rock.

Brandon McManus - - The offense continues to be nearly unstoppable, especially at home. Expect plenty of points on the scoreboard yet again.

Denver Broncos - - The defense is coming off another good week as they are rolling and while they are facing an offense that has been playing well much of the season, the pass rush could give the Chargers some trouble.

Prediction: Denver Broncos 34 - San Diego Chargers 23


Detroit Lions at Atlanta Falcons - Sunday 9:30am

Detroit Lions

Matthew Stafford - - Coming off a nice game thanks to a late rally. Still a riskier option with Megatron likely out and facing a bad defense (Which may mean lots of running). That being said, the Falcons pass defense is bad as well, which gives him more than enough upside to give him another start as usual.

Joique Bell - - Coming off another touchdown game and with an exceptional matchup, he should be quite busy this week and be able to keep on rolling. Lots of upside against a struggling Falcons defense.
Reggie Bush - - Bell continues to be the main man, though Bush does have the matchup that could help him bust a big play, so you could certainly take a chance on him.
Theo Riddick - - Still banged up, though even if he was healthy, he wouldn't see much action with Bush and Bell ready to roll.
George Winn - - Didn't touch the ball last week, so go back to forgetting about him.

Calvin Johnson - - He is making the trip to London, though unless he is close to 100%, he likely will sit again (And it sounds he won't be able to play). If he plays, you know what he can do, though could be a decoy (Although the Lions say he will play when he is healthy enough to be himself). If he can suit up, you should strongly consider him considering the awesome matchup.
Golden Tate - - Coming off a monster performance, although they were playing catch up against the Saints. That may not happen against the Falcons in London, though he has a great matchup and deserves another shot to see if he can keep the good times going.
Jeremy Ross - - Just not producing enough and while he certainly could surprise considering the matchup, I wouldn't want to bet on it.
Corey Fuller - - Stepped up against the Saints and caught the game winner. With Megatron potentially out, he could surprise again especially when you consider the great matchup. So you could do worse than Fuller, although I'd feel more comfortable starting a receiver with a more proven track record.

Brandon Pettigrew - - Just not productive enough even with Megatron out to merit starting him, even with a great matchup against a leaky Falcons defense. I wouldn't be shocked if he surprised and did something, but I wouldn't feel good about gambling on him.
Eric Ebron - - Dealing with an injured hamstring, though he does have a good matchup. That being said, he still hasn't done enough to merit starting him even when 100% and sounds like he may sit again.
Joseph Fauria - - Dealing with injured ankle, so looks like you can forget about him again.

Matt Prater - - The offense should be able to roll against a struggling Falcons defense, which should lead to plenty of scoring chances for Mr. Prater.

Detroit Lions - - The defense continues to make plays and while the Falcons have weapons, that struggling offensive line could be in for a long day against the Lions defensive front, which should bode well for the Lions defense.

Atlanta Falcons

Matt Ryan - - Coming off a rough game as the struggles of the offensive line and the lack of a running game have made it tough on him. Add in the tough matchup against a strong Lions defense and he continues to be a bigger risk than he should. On the plus side, he does have enough weapons to still get the job done.

Steven Jackson - - Continues to struggle and the Falcons have been getting four RBs into the mix. Against a strong Lions run defense, you would be wise to stay far away from him.
Jacquizz Rodgers - - Just not getting enough touches to merit starting him, especially against a strong Lions defense.
Antone Smith - - No touchdown this week and still not seeing many touches. Continues to be a touchdown or nothing and a tough matchup won't help his cause, so I'd continue to stay away unless you are really desperate for RB help.
Devonta Freeman - - The rookie still isn't being used enough to merit starting him, especially once you factor in the brutal matchup he faces.

Julio Jones - - Has cooled off and facing a tough pass defense, though he can break a big play and light up any defense. His upside is always too good, so as long as he is playing, he needs to be started. Though it would be nice if the offense could get out of this funk.
Roddy White - - Coming off a huge game like he used to put up all the time. Unfortunately, those have been rare this season and with a tough mathcup, heis a bigger gamble than usual. At least last week gives us hope he can get it done.
Harry Douglas - - Could be back from his injured foot, though considering he still may not be 100%, he faces a tough pass defense and he wasn't exactly lighting it up when healthy, I think I'd continue to bypass him.
Devin Hester - - Still a big play or nothing (Or at least close to that). So hard to rely on him, especially considering the tough matchup.
Eric Weems - - Move along, nothing to be seen here.

Levine Toilolo - - Still not being used enough to consider him much of an option, so I'd scour the waiver wire if he is your choice.

Matt Bryant - - With the offense in a major funk and facing a tough defense, it may be best to play it safe and look elsewhere. If the offense can find itself, he could be a key scoring option.

Atlanta Falcons - - The defense continues to be a mess and will have their hands full with a capable offense, even if Megatron is a no go. Devin Hester's return game is the only good thing going for them it seems and return TDs don't happen often enough to justify the gamble.

Prediction: Detroit Lions 27 - Atlanta Falcons 13


Chicago Bears at New England Patriots - Sunday 1:00pm

Chicago Bears

Jay Cutler - - Coming off a tough game and faces a good pass defense, on the road to boot. While he has the weapons to beat up any defense, he certainly has more risk against a good Patriots defense.

Matt Forte - - Coming off a big game and while he faces a good defense, the Patriots have had issues defending the run, which should help his cause. If nothing else, he should be involved heavily as a receiver again making him a strong option.
Ka'Deem Carey - - Still nothing more than a handcuff to Forte, so continue to forget about him.

Brandon Marshall - - Was quiet last week, at least to what we are used to. Faces a tall order against a strong Patriots pass defense who employ a talented secondary that will make it tough on the Bears WRs. He is a stud that can go off any week, so you probably still want to rely on him, unless you are extremely loaded with other options.
Alshon Jeffery - - Coming off a very rough game and faces a good pass defense, so definitely a riskier option than he typically is. Still he has the talent to put up big numbers any week, but definitely will have his hands full.
Josh Morgan - - Still not seeing much action, except on rare occasion. So just too inconsistent to consider him a viable fantasy option.

Martellus Bennett - - With the secondary making it tougher on the WRs, Bennett may need to come up big to help the Bears hang in this one. He has cooled off after a hot start, but maybe he can get back to the end zone against the Patriots.

Robbie Gould - - The offense is coming off a tough week (And supposedly the finger pointing has begun) and head on the road to face a solid Patriots defense, so may be a little hard to trust them. If the offense does find itself, could struggle to finish drives.

Chicago Bears - - The defense has play makers, though will have their hands full against a Patriots offense that rarely beats themselves, especially at home.

New England Patriots

Tom Brady - - Continues to tear it up of late and with another good mathcup, at home to boot, he definitely should continue to be ridden hard like a rented mule.

Jonas Gray - - Looks like the 2nd option at RB, though who knows what this week will bring. I'd avoid the situation and consider Vereen as the only RB worth being in the starter discussion at this time.
Shane Vereen - - Coming off a huge game with a pair of touchdown receptions and appears to be the focus of the running attack. Though by now I'm sure you hate Bill Belichick's handling of RBs as much, if not more, than I do. Good matchup gives him a ton of upside, though you never know what you will get. I like to gamble, so would definitely consider him since he has a favorable matchup.
Brandon Bolden - - Looks like he has fallen behind Gray and Vereen, so at this tie, I'd play it safe and avoid him. Though again, you never know what the Patriots running game will look like at any time.
LeGarrette Blount - - Still not doing enough to merit starting and touchdowns could be tough to come by, so probably don't want to take a chance on him.
James White - - The rookie still is nowhere to be found, so continue to forget about him.

Brandon LaFell - - Continues to see more action and with a good matchup against a banged up and struggling Bears pass defense, he certainly could be a pleasant surprise.
Julian Edelman - - Was quiet last week, though has a good matchup to help him bounce back. The emergence of LaFell does give him a little more risk, but with Brady rolling and a good matchup, he should be a nice option.
Danny Amendola - - Holy cow, he found the end zone last week. Still was his only reception, so I'd continue to forget about him unless he suddenly starts putting up some consistent production.
Aaron Dobson - - Continue to forget about him and his non-existent fantasy value.
Brian Tyms - - Did nothing last week, though he could surprise any week. But there is just too much risk and not enough upside to merit starting him.

Rob Gronkowski - - The Jets held him in semi-check (Still put up solid numbers), though he should be able to get back on track against a struggling Bears pass defense. If you have him, make sure he is in your lineup.
Tim Wright - - Did nothing last time out as he continues to see little time on the field. That being said, he can be a tough matchup and is he gets a chance in the red zone, he can produce. So if you are in a bind, he could help you out of it.

Stephen Gostkowski - - The offense should be in for another huge game, which should lead to plenty of scoring chances for Gostkowski, so keep riding him.

New England Patriots - - The defense had some issues against the Jets, though have plenty of play makers and while the Bears are talented, they have had turnover and protection issues.

Buffalo Bills at New York Jets - Sunday 1:00pm

Buffalo Bills

Kyle Orton - - Coming off a good performance against a solid pass defense, though has to head on the road to face a divisional foe, so could be a little riskier. Though not a bad matchup since Jets have had some woes against the pass.

Fred Jackson - - Expected to miss four weeks, though he hopes to return sooner. Regardless he won't help you for the next couple/few weeks.
Anthony Dixon - - Showed some flashes last week, though may have to worry about Brown stealing touches (And some think it could be Brown as the better option). With a tough matchup, it is probably best to take a wait and see approach with the Bills running attack.
Bryce Brown - - Injuries to Spiller and F-Jax should lead to some role in the offense. The question is how big a one will it be? He could be the No. 1 guy or could see limited or no action. With a tough matchup, it gives you a perfect excuse to watch and learn (But I would consider adding him to your bench for down the line in case he becomes the go to RB).

Sammy Watkins - - Coming off a huge game as he showed off his explosiveness. Not a bad matchup, though like many rookies, he likely will continue to be inconsistent. But after last week, he certainly would be worth rolling out there to see if he can keep it going.
Robert Woods - - Still not putting up enough production to consider him worth starting, even with a solid matchup. If you are in a hole and need him, you never know, he could pay off as he does have the talent to get it done.
Chris Hogan - - Was decent last week, though still not being used consistently enough to consider him worthy of taking a chance on, unless you are really, really in a bind.
Mike Williams - - Has his agent pursuing trade options, so looks like he is just too big a long shot to consider him much of a fantasy threat.

Scott Chandler - - Inconsistent option, though did have one good game against the Jets last season. Still doesn't have many good fantasy performances, so best suited as a start in a pinch option.

Dan Carpenter - - The offense has been inconsistent and facing a Jets defense that has been solid, though has had some ups and downs as well. Playing on the road won't make it any easier.

Buffalo Bills - - The defense has had some pretty nice performances and they do have weapons. Could benefit from facing an offense that has struggled protecting the ball, so could be a strong option.

New York Jets

Geno Smith - - While every once in awhile he produces enough to merit a start, it is just too rare to feel confident starting him. Not a bad matchup and the addition of Harvin will give him another option, assuming the Jets can figure out how to get him involved.

Chris Ivory - - Continues to run hard and even with a tough matchup, he could be a pleasant surprise. Still has risk, but the offense seems to perform best when he is heavily involved.
Chris Johnson - - Ivory is still the main man, which makes Johnson a risky option. Add in the tough matchup against a strong Bills run defense and it is probably in your best interest to look elsewhere.
Bilal Powell - - Not seeing much action, so it is pretty safe to continue to ignore him.

Eric Decker - - Has been the most consistent option for the Jets at least receiver wise. The addition of Harvin could take some pressure off of him (Or cut into his touches, though I think it could actually help some) and does have a solid matchup.
Percy Harvin - - We shall see how the Jets use him, but it may take some time to get into the flow and learn the offense. He could get a few chances to make big plays, but it may be best to let him get his feet wet. His explosiveness does give him some upside, so if you need to go with him, it could pay off.
Jeremy Kerley - - Has been inconsistent, though the addition of Harvin will likely cut into his limited value.

Jeff Cumberland - - Found the end zone last time out, though the emergence of Amaro will likely mean few games like last week. So I'd be hard pressed to rely on him.
Jace Amaro - - The rookie has shown flashes and has a decent matchup. Who knows how the addition of Harvin will impact him. Still would like to see more production before relying on him as a starter, though you may be able to give him a shot if need be.

Nick Folk - - Coming off a big week as the offense has shown some life. Not a bad matchup, though finishing drives may not be easy, which could mean another big day for Folk.

New York Jets - - The defense hasn't done much fantasy wise, though facing an up and down offense at home and they do have some capable play makers, so could surprise.

Baltimore Ravens at Cincinnati Bengals - Sunday 1:00pm

Baltimore Ravens

Joe Flacco - - Has been playing well of late and did go over 300 yards earlier in the season against the Bengals, whose defense has taken a step back since that Week One meeting. So could be a guy worth riding again to see if he can stay hot.

Justin Forsett - - Has a nice game in the previous meeting with Cincinnati and he has been playing well of late as he has become the unquestioned No. 1 RB. The Bengals defense has been battling injuries and struggling of late, giving him plenty of upside.
Lorenzo Taliaferro - - Forsett has rally taken the bull by the horns, so the rookie likely won't see much action, so it would be wise to look elsewhere.
Bernard Pierce - - With Forsett rolling, it doesn't look like there will be enough touches for Pierce to merit starting, so I'd explore other options.

Steve Smith - - Was alright last time out, though facing a Bengals defense that has struggled of late, one he torched earlier in the season, so keep on riding him.
Torrey Smith - - Found the end zone again last week, so maybe he is starting to get it going. Facing a Bengals defense that is in a real funk, albeit one that has done a nice job against him in the past. But if you need him, he could be worth taking a chance on.
Marlon Brown - - Still not being used much, so I'd continue to forget about taking a chance on him.
Jacoby Jones - - Not seeing much action as a receiver, so there is no reason to consider taking a chance on him.

Owen Daniels - - Has been inconsistent, though has some nice upside against a Bengals defense that has really struggled to stop good receiving tight ends. So if you need him, it may be a nice time to give him a shot. Watch that injured knee closely.
Crockett Gillmore - - The rookie could get a shot if Daniels is unable to roll, though even with a good matchup, this is probably too big of a gamble to consider making.

Justin Tucker - - The Bengals are usually tough at home, which could make touchdowns hard to come by. So the Ravens could be forced to settle for FG attempts.

Baltimore Ravens - - The defense has come on and facing a banged up offense that has been in a funk and coming off being shutout. Usually are better at home, though the offense doesn't seem to function near as well with Green banged up.

Cincinnati Bengals

Andy Dalton - - Coming off a downright horrible performance and really needs to get his running mate Green back, which could happen against the Ravens. Went over 300 yards in the previous meeting, though I'd only real consider him if Green can go, which is a key to making the offense go. Even then, it may be best to play it safe with another option (Assuming it is an option that typically gets the job done or has a great matchup).

Giovani Bernard - - Coming off a horrible game and faces a tough run defense, though his receiving skills could come in handy like they did in the earlier meeting. His explosiveness always makes him a threat to produce, so I'd still ride him unless you have other tasty options.
Jeremy Hill - - The rookie is still seeing limited touches, so would need to find the end zone to merit starting and the Ravens have been tough to run on, so may be best to explore other options.

A.J. Green - - In a key divisional game, he may try to get onto the field, which would certainly help the offense in general. Does have a good history against the Ravens, but likely won't be his usually explosive self thanks to that injured toe. If he can suit up, his upside may make him worth the risk, but may not be the no brainer option he usually is (Though I probably would take a chance on him, unless you have other strong options to rely on).
Mohamed Sanu - - Didn't live up to the hype last week, though the entire team really struggled. Not a bad matchup and even if Green goes, he could be quite busy, so could be worth another shot.
Brandon Tate - - Just not being targeted much, so I'd be hard pressed to rely on him.
Dane Sanzenbacher - - Not involved in the offense enough to consider him worth taking a chance on.
James Wright - - Not seeing much action, so even if Green is a no go again, you don't want to go here.

Jermaine Gresham - - Coming off a big game and looks like he will be asked to take on a larger role with the WR corps so banged up. A solid matchup should help his cause, though still not what I'd call a sure thing.

Mike Nugent - - Hard to rely on a kicker whose team just got shutout and facing a solid defense. Bengals usually are tough at home and it is a key division game, but touchdowns could be at a premium for the offense, which could mean Nugent has to come up big.

Cincinnati Bengals - - The injuries are really hurting the defense, so they will have their hands full against an offense that has been rolling of late.

Prediction: Baltimore Ravens 23 - Cincinnati Bengals 20


Houston Texans at Tennessee Titans - Sunday 1:00pm

Houston Texans

Ryan Fitzpatrick - - Tossed a couple touchdowns to his backs last week, though still not typically producing enough to merit staring him. Not a bad matchup, but likely will be another busy week for Foster.

Arian Foster - - Continues to light up the scoreboard and resembling the guy that was the unquestioned go to RB in fantasy football. With another great matchup to exploit, he should remain in your starting lineup.
Alfred Blue - - Found the end zone on Monday night, though still mainly just a handcuff to Foster. While he is getting some touches, just not enough of them to merit starting him while Foster is healthy.

Andre Johnson - - The veteran has a good matchup and can go off any week. Though Fitzpatrick isn't exactly helping his cause and the Texans are liable to once again ride Foster hard. On the plus side, the ball doesn't really get thrown spread around to many receivers, so that helps his cause as well.
DeAndre Hopkins - - Coming off a nice game as he continues to put up some solid numbers and with a nice matchup, he could keep it going and has the potential to put up big numbers. So if you need to rely on him, I would go ahead and plug him in.
Damaris Johnson - - His targets continue to be way too rare to give hi many fantasy value, so as you have all season, forget about him.

Garrett Graham - - Still not being used much, so I'd continue to forget about him.

Randy Bullock - - The offense has a good matchup and should be able to move the ball, especially with Foster. So there should be scoring chances to be had for Bullock.

Houston Texans - - The defense continues to play well and with J.J. Watt wrecking havoc and the potential return of Clowney, they could give an inconsistent Titans offense trouble.

Tennessee Titans

Zach Mettenberger - - The rookie has been named the starter. While he has a good matchup, hard to rely on a rookie making him first career start.
Jake Locker - - While he may be healthy enough to play, won't get the start this week and who knows if he will get another chance since he is an impending free agent.
Charlie Whitehurst - - Looks like he is back to the bench.

Shonn Greene - - Still dealing with that injured hamstring and even if he can go, likely would be the 2nd fiddle to the rookie.
Bishop Sankey - - The rookie has shown some flashes, but also made some rookie mistakes (See last week's running out of bounds while trying to burn the clock). Not a bad matchup, so does have enough upside that you could roll the dice on him if you don't like your other options.
Dexter McCluster - - Still not seeing many touches, so while he may bust a big play on occasion, they are way too rare to gamble on him since usually he will get you next to nothing.
Leon Washington - - Even if Greene is out again, doesn't appear he will have much of a role in the offense.

Kendall Wright - - Coming off a strong performance and he has started to find himself and with a good matchup, he could keep it going. Still not what I'd call a safe option, but certainly a guy you could feel fine with starting.
Nate Washington - - Has his moments, but the good games are too few to merit starting him. That being said, the matchup could help his cause, but I still wouldn't feel comfortable starting him.
Justin Hunter - - Has the matchup that could allow him to bust a big play, but is a boom or bust option. Unless you are in a bind, I'd prefer to look elsewhere.

Delanie Walker - - Struggled last week, though for the most part he has been a solid option much of the season and has a solid matchup. So if you don't have one of the stud tight ends, he could be worth another start.

Ryan Succop - - The offense has been inconsistent and faces a tough defense, though that could mean the Titans are forced to rely on the leg of Succop for scoring.

Tennessee Titans - - The defense has put together a couple solid performances and facing an offense that has had some turnover woes at times, so could be a pleasant surprise if you need to take a chance on them.

Miami Dolphins at Jacksonville Jaguars - Sunday 1:00pm

Miami Dolphins

Ryan Tannehill - - While his ceiling may not be extremely high, he has been putting up pretty solid numbers most of the season. A very juicy matchup should help his cause and make him worth rolling the dice on.

Lamar Miller - - Coming off another nice game as he continues to be the go to guy. The Jaguars can be run on, though they did a nice job last week against a good Browns running game. But expect Miller to be busy and make hay again.
Daniel Thomas - - While he should see some touches to mix it up, Miller is still the main man so hard to rely on Thomas as a starter.
Damien Williams - - The rookie is still nowhere to be found and that likely won't change anytime soon.

Mike Wallace - - Coming off another good performance thanks to another touchdown. Should be in position to keep producing against a struggling Jaguars pass defense.
Brian Hartline - - Continues to struggle to produce, so I'd continue to forget about relying on him. He just doesn't have a very high ceiling.
Jarvis Landry - - The rookie continues to show some flashes, though still would like to see a little more from him before plugging him into the starting lineup. The good matchup against the Jaguars could be a little tempting if you are really desperate for WR help.
Brandon Gibson - - With Landry stepping up his game, likely will be even more miss than hit.

Charles Clay - - Nice to see him finally join the party and he certainly could keep it going against a struggling Jaguars defense. Still would like to see a little more consistent production from Clay before starting him. But the matchup could make him worth the trouble if you are in a bind, though keep an eye on that knee which is bugging him.

Caleb Sturgis - - The offense has been coming on and should be able to take advantage of a struggling defense. Playing on the road could make touchdowns harder to come by, which could lead to a few FG attempts for Sturgis.

Miami Dolphins - - Coming off a good week and have had some good moments and should benefit from facing a rookie QB that is still learning his way.

Jacksonville Jaguars

Blake Bortles - - The rookie has his moments, but still learning his way and with a tough matchup, it isn't a very good week to gamble on him.

Denard Robinson - - Coming off a big game and looks like he has established himself as the go to running back. Faces a good defense, so may want to look elsewhere, unless you are really in a bind and need to take a big gamble.
Toby Gerhart - - Still dealing with a foot injury and even when healthy, he may not get enough touches, so I'd continue to forget about him.

Cecil Shorts - - Has his moments, though hasn't made many big plays and with a tough matchup, it may not be the best week to rely on him.
Allen Robinson - - Coming off a nice performance, though faces a tough pass defense, so may want to temper your expectations and consider other options.
Allen Hurns - - Continues to pretty much be a non-factor of late, so you can continue to forget about using him.
Ace Sanders - - Move along, no fantasy value to be found here.
Marqise Lee - - The rookie is still trying to find his way, so continue to forget about considering him for your lineup.

Clay Harbor - - Has shown some flashes, though an iffy matchup won't help his cause so it may not be the best time to rely on him.

Josh Scobee - - The offense has started to show some life and playing at home. Not the best matchup, though maybe that leads to FG attempts. Still would feel better with a kicker on a better offense.

Jacksonville Jaguars - - The defense has shown some flashes and coming off a nice game, though facing an offense that has come on of late, so not the ideal matchup.

Saint Louis Rams at Kansas City Chiefs - Sunday 1:00pm

Saint Louis Rams

Austin Davis - - The rookie has shown poise and tossed a pair of touchdowns against a good Seahawks defense. Though heads on the road to a hostile environment to face a Chiefs defense that has been very tough to throw on, so you probably don't want to look toward Davis.

Tre Mason - - The rookie looked good against a strong Seahawks run defense. He will be tested again playing on the road against a decent run defense. He should get his touches and could still get it done, but on the road and still relatively green, it may be wise to pass on him.
Benny Cunningham - - Found the end zone as a receiver, though Mason appears to have become the main rushing threat. With a tough matchup, it may be wise to look elsewhere, though he certainly could be key to offensive success as a receiver. So maybe he is worth a shot in PPR leagues, maybe.
Zac Stacy - - Talk about falling off the Earth in a hurry. Didn't touch the ball last week and appears to now be the third option. I'd avoid starting him for sure unless he can get back in the Rams good graces. Looks like dropping him may not be a bad idea, though maybe you wait another week to see if he fights back.

Brian Quick - - Was quiet against the Seahawks (Not surprisingly) and faces another tough pass defense, so you may want to strongly consider other options.
Kenny Britt - - Just hasn't been producing enough to merit starting him against a tough Chiefs pass defense.
Tavon Austin - - While he can break a big play, he hasn't been producing much and with a brutal matchup, it is probably wise to pass on him again.
Chris Givens - - Move along. There is no fantasy value to be found here, especially once you factor in the brutal matchup.

Jared Cook - - Just not producing enough to consider him worthy of a start, especially when you consider the difficult matchup.
Lance Kendricks - - Found the end zone last week, though still has been too inconsistent to rely on, especially against a strong pass defense.

Greg Zuerlein - - While the offense has shown signs of life, they certainly will have their hands full as they take to the road to face a strong defense in one of the loudest places on Earth.

St. Louis Rams - - The defense is coming off a solid game and they do have their share of play makers. Though they head on the road to face an offense that while not loaded, typically does a good job of not beating themselves.

Kansas City Chiefs

Alex Smith - - Continues to manage games well, which isn't typically a recipe for fantasy success. Not a bad matchup, though may lean heavily on the running game again which will limit his upside, so you probably want to look elsewhere.

Jamaal Charles - - Coming off a pretty good performance and now he heads home to face a Rams defense that has really struggled to stop the running game (Although they have shown some signs of life lately). But you can bet that Charles is quite busy making him a must start.
Knile Davis - - While he continues to see some touches, there are just not enough of them to consider him worth starting, unless you are in a bind and really need to hope he can take advantage of an excellent matchup and take advantage of the limited touches.
De'Anthony Thomas - - May see a little action, but nowhere near enough to consider him fantasy worthy.

Dwayne Bowe - - Actually put up some solid numbers last week and if he can start doing that a little more consistently, then he can work back into the fantasy mix. Until he does replicate it, I'd continue to bypass him, though at least he is on the radar to keep an eye on.
A.J. Jenkins - - Just not producing much, so there is no good reason to consider starting him. Even his father won't roster him to his fantasy team.
Junior Hemingway - - Dealing with a hamstring injury and since he hasn't been producing much when 100%, no use relying on him when in less than healthy shape.
Frankie Hammond - - Keep searching as you won't find a fantasy worthy option next to this guy.

Travis Kelce - - Was so-so last week, though he has shown he can be an effective weapon and has a solid matchup. While it would be nice to see the Chiefs unleash him fully, he is still capable of producing fantasy worthy numbers. Keep an eye on those injured ribs, which could limit him.
Anthony Fasano - - Just not seeing enough action in the passing game to consider him fantasy worthy.

Cairo Santos - - The offense has been solid, especially at home and should be able to move the ball well, though the Rams defense does have the talent to force them to settle for FG attempts.

Kansas City Chiefs - - The defense had one really good week and has been quiet outside of that, at least for the most part. Facing a young QB in a crazy environment which could rattle Davis and allow the Chiefs to make a big play or two.

Minnesota Vikings at Tampa Bay Buccaneers - Sunday 1:00pm

Minnesota Vikings

Teddy Bridgewater - - The rookie is still finding his way, though facing a bad Bucs defense could be just what the fantasy doctor ordered. If you need to gamble on him, he just might pay off.

Jerick McKinnon - - Coming off a 100 yard performance and has a legit chance to build on that against a struggling Bucs defense, so could be a good week to give him a shot.
Matt Asiata - - The rookie continues to push his way past him and even with a good matchup, hard to rely on him since he is not seeing many touches of late.
Ben Tate - - Was a huge disappointment last week, though gets a shot to redeem himself against a struggling Raiders run defense, at home to boot. So I'd definitely consider taking a chance on him again and allowing him to make up for last week's struggles.

Greg Jennings - - A good matchup could help his cause, though still hasn't been producing on a consistent basis, so continues to be a risky option. If you are in a bind, he certainly is capable of getting it done.
Cordarrelle Patterson - - Still not being used as much as he should be, though at least he found the end zone against the Bills. Still needs to be used more frequently, though a great matchup may make him worth the trouble. Definitely boom or bust option.
Jarius Wright - - While he has shown some flashes and has a good matchup to exploit, hard to rely on the Vikings 3rd wide receiver. If you are really in a bind, you could certainly do worse.
Adam Thielen - - Just not being used enough to merit starting him, regardless of how great the matchup.

Chase Ford - - Bridgewater is still not using the tight ends consistently enough to merit starting him.

Blair Walsh - - The offense showed some life last week and faces a defense that has been downright horrible, so there is a good chanced that Walsh gets a few scoring chances.

Minnesota Vikings - - The defense is coming off a big game and facing an offense that has been up and down, though one that does have its share of weapons.

Tampa Bay Buccaneers

Mike Glennon - - Has put up some solid numbers, though will have his hands full with a good Vikings pass defense. He does have some good play makers which can help him produce, though definitely a bigger gamble than usual, especially with the offensive line struggling.

Doug Martin - - Continues to disappoint, though not a bad matchup and maybe the bye week will help him get back on track. Definitely a risky option, but coming out of the bye, he may be worth another shot to see if he can get it going.
Bobby Rainey - - Martin continues to be the main option, though Rainey has cut into his touches. Not a bad matchup, but still hard to rely on the Bucs 2nd option.

Vincent Jackson - - The veteran has been coming on with Glennon under center and can get it done any week. Is a bigger risk this week considering he faces a good Vikings pass defense (One that was lit up by Sammy Watkins last week).
Mike Evans - - The rookie got it done last week and while he has a tough matchup, he has shown he can make big play. Rookies can be inconsistent, so definitely not close to a sure thing.
Louis Murphy - - Coming off a big game prior to the bye week, though as the 3rd option in the passing game, he likely will be very inconsistent and not worth the trouble, especially with a tough matchup.
Robert Herron - - The rookie has seen some action, though still not enough to consider him worth anything in the fantasy football world.

Austin Seferian-Jenkins - - The rookie has started to become more involved, though does face a good pass defense. While he could surprise, you may want to wait for a better matchup to come along.
Brandon Myers - - With the rookie starting to get more involved, he likely won't produce much, so I'd forget about starting him.

Patrick Murray - - The offense has been inconsistent and facing a capable Vikings defense. While he is at home and could surprise, I'd feel more confident starting a kicker on a better offense.

Tampa Bay Buccaneers - - The defense continues to struggle, though they have made some big plays. Could benefit from facing a rookie QB playing on the road, so if you are really desperate, maybe they could surprise. I'd still feel better starting a defense that hasn't been lit up most of the season.

Seattle Seahawks at Carolina Panthers - Sunday 1:00pm

Seattle Seahawks

Russell Wilson - - Coming off a monster performance and has another favorable matchup to exploit, so definitely a guy that should be counted on to see if he can keep on rolling.

Marshawn Lynch - - Coming off another disappointing week, but you would think the Seahawks will want to feed the beast and get him back on track. Has a good matchup and too much upside to not rely on him as usual.
Robert Turbin - - Nothing but a handcuff, so pretty safe to continue to forget about starting him.
Christine Michael - - Continue to forget about him as well.

Doug Baldwin - - With Harvin now out of town, he may be the leading candidate to turn into the go to receiver. The way Wilson spreads the wealth, he could continue to be inconsistent. With a favorable matchup, I'd definitely consider him worth the risk and could see him putting up strong numbers.
Jermaine Kearse - - With Harvin now in New York, he rises on the depth chart and may start showing a little more consistency and maybe make some more big plays. Still will be hit or miss, though he could be worth taking a chance on if your options are limited as he has a nice matchup.
Ricardo Lockette - - While he should see a little more action and will have some good times as Wilson spreads it around, he may be more likely to get you nothing than a good game, so I'd keep looking.
Paul Richardson - - May have his moments and with Harvin gone, he could have more of them, but still would like to see more production before considering him fantasy worthy.
Kevin Norwood - - The rookie is probably still too far down the depth chart, so there is no fantasy value to be found here.

Zach Miller - - Still dealing with that injured ankle and even if he can go, he may be limited and wasn't exactly a stud when healthy. Thus I'd play it safe and explore other options.
Luke Willson - - Dealing with a groin injury, so even if he can go, probably not worth the risk.
Cooper Helfet - - Stepped up and found the end zone filling in last week and could be counted on again. Though still hard to rely on someone buried so far down the depth chart and on an offense that really spreads the ball around.

Steven Hauschka - - Making the trip across country could make it a little tough to finish drives, though they should be able to move the ball quite well, which should lead to a busy day for Hauschka.

Seattle Seahawks - - The defense still has plenty of weapons and while they are facing a capable offense on the road, they have the weapons to make big plays, so still a team worth starting, even though they will have their work cut out for them.

Carolina Panthers

Cam Newton - - Cooled off last week and faces a tough task against a strong Seahawks defense, albeit one that has cooled off lately. His legs could come in handy and allow him to make something out of nothing, so still worth starting if you need to take a chance on him.

DeAngelo Williams - - While he has an outside shot to play, it sounds unlikely and even if he can, may not be ready for a very large role. Add in the tough matchup and it is probably wise to hold off on using him.
Jonathan Stewart - - Showed no ill effects of injury and appears like he should be the main man, at least until D-Will is healthy. But faces a tough Seahawks run defense, so may be wise to explore other options again.

Kelvin Benjamin - - The rookie continues to make plays, although he could be learning a tough lesson against a good Seahawks pass defense. Has the talent to get it done still, but definitely a riskier option than usual.
Jerricho Cotchery - - Continues to struggle to produce most weeks, though with Benjamin drawing the bulk of the defensive attention, he could make a play or two. Still would feel much better with another option.
Jason Avant - - Still not being used near enough to consider him fantasy worthy, so I'd keep searching.
Brenton Bersin - - Found the end zone against the Packers, but still not being used quite enough to consider him much of an option, so I'd keep looking for a starter.

Greg Olsen - - Continues to dominate and make plays, though the lack of a true No. 2 WR could mean he draws a little more attention from the defense. Still he is a tough matchup and should continue to get plenty of looks, so keep riding him.

Graham Gano - - The offense does have weapons and while the Seahawks defense is tough, they have had some issues of late. Playing at home should help, though that end zone could be harder to come by.

Carolina Panthers - - The defense continues to struggle and will likely have their hands full against a good Seahawks offense that usually limits their mistakes.

Philadelphia Eagles at Arizona Cardinals - Sunday 4:05pm

Philadelphia Eagles

Nick Foles - - While he hasn't exactly lived up to the hype thus far, he has still be putting up nice numbers and facing a defense that has really struggled against the pass (While being tough to run on, which may lead to more passing from Foles). Good upside, so keep riding him.

LeSean McCoy - - Coming off a big game, FINALLY, though will have his hands full against a good run defense. Still he is a capable receiver and with Sproles still not 100%, that could help his cause. He was a must start coming into the season, so unless you are loaded at RB, you should keep riding him and hope he can pickup where he left off prior to the bye.
Darren Sproles - - Dealing with a knee injury and while he hopes to play, you have to wonder if his explosiveness could be limited, which could lead to more McCoy and less Sproles.
Chris Polk - - The hamstring is feeling better, though even if Sproles were unable to play, he still likely wouldn't see enough action to merit taking a chance on him.

Jeremy Maclin - - Has come up big this season, though struggled prior to the bye. But he can make a big play any week, though Peterson could make it a little tougher on him, but since he has been pretty hot much of the season, you should probably keep riding him.
Jordan Matthews - - Continues to fight for touches with Cooper, which has hurt both of their values. On the plus side, he is facing a pass defense which has struggled, so could pay off if you really need to go there.
Riley Cooper - - Just hasn't been consistently getting the job done, though does have a good matchup, so he certainly could surprise if you need to run with him.
Josh Huff - - Move along please, nothing to be seen here.

Zach Ertz - - Has been inconsistent, but is a play maker and facing a team that can be thrown on and has struggled at times against the tight end. So he has enough upside to consider him a viable option.
Brent Celek - - While he may have his moments, he typically isn't being used enough to consider him a viable fantasy option.

Cody Parkey - - The Eagles offense has been playing well, though against a good Cardinals defense, on the road to boot, they could struggle to finish drives and lead to another busy week for the rookie kicker.

Philadelphia Eagles - - The defense has been coming up huge the last few weeks and facing an offense that is led by a QB that has been known to make mistakes in the past. Considering how hot they are, you might as well keep on riding them.

Arizona Cardinals

Carson Palmer - - Has put up solid numbers since his return from injury and facing a defense which has struggled much of the season, albeit one that is coming off a strong performance prior to the bye.

Andre Ellington - - Continues to be banged up and is now dealing with sore ribs in addition to the foot. Still expected to be the main man and does have a good matchup. Though hopefully Taylor won't continue to steal his touchdown chances, but only time will tell. Should continue to get the job done.
Stepfan Taylor - - Found the end zone twice against the Raiders and with Ellington not at 100%, that could mean Taylor continues to see a little more action. Still likely needs a touchdown to merit starting, so is a risky option, but does have a good matchup.

Michael Floyd - - Has been producing nicely with Palmer under center and with another good matchup, he has more than enough upside to consider him a strong starting option.
Larry Fitzgerald - - Cooled back off against the Raiders though have a favorable matchup and is capable of giving the Eagles fits. So he still is worth giving him a shot, even though Fitzgerald owners continue to long for the days of yore.
John Brown - - Is a hit or miss option, but dealing with an injured ankle, so that may make him a little too risky to rely on, even though he is facing an iffy defense.
Ted Ginn Jr. - - Still not being used enough as a receiver to consider him worthy of a spot start.

John Carlson - - The tight end continues to see too little action as a receiver to consider starting him.

Chandler Catanzaro - - The offense has been playing well and has a good matchup to exploit, though the Eagles came up big prior to the bye, so maybe they can keep going and force the Cardinals to settle for field goals.

Arizona Cardinals - - The defense has plenty of play makers, though face an offense that has a lot of talented weapons. Though playing in the desert could help the Cardinals cause.

Oakland Raiders at Cleveland Browns - Sunday 4:25pm

Oakland Raiders

Derek Carr - - The rookie has been inconsistent, though facing a Browns defense that has had issues. Playing on the road may be the tiebreaker that keeps him from being worth gambling on.

Darren McFadden - - Has established himself as the No. 1 back and has a good matchup against a team that really got lit up last week. While he hasn't really come up big thus far in 2014, the matchup could make him worth taking a chance on.
Maurice Jones-Drew - - Still not seeing much action, so regardless of the matchup, there is no reason to consider him for your lineup.

James Jones - - Has been up and down and likely will see plenty of Mr. Haden this week, so Carr may explore other options making him a little too risky to start.
Andre Holmes - - Has come on of late and with Haden likely looking to slow Jones, Carr could look Holmes way and allow him to be a nice gamble.
Denarius Moore - - Still not producing, so regardless of the matchup, I'd have to be in dire straits to rely on him (And even then I may just leave that lineup spot blank as it would likely produce as much as Moore).
Vincent Brown - - Hamstring injury is killing his already dead fantasy value, so keep on looking.

Mychal Rivera - - Still not in the game plan enough to consider starting him, even with the best of matchups.

Sebastian Janikowski - - The offense just hasn't been producing enough to merit starting him, even though the Browns defense has had some issues much of the season. Certainly could get it done, but is hard to trust that offense, especially on the road.

Oakland Raiders - - The defense continues to struggle and facing an offense that has done a good job of protecting the ball, well until they turned it over three times last week against the Jaguars.

Cleveland Browns

Brian Hoyer - - Browns likely will continue to ride the running game hard, especially since the Raiders struggle to stop the run, while being solid against the pass. So not the best week to rely on Hoyer.

Isaiah Crowell - - Still not being used enough on a consistent basis to merit starting him, even though he could surprise thanks to the struggles of West last week and the nice matchup.
Terrance West - - Struggled against the Jaguars, so who knows if he gets another crack this week. Even if he does, he likely won't see enough touches to merit starting.

Andrew Hawkins - - Coming off a nice game, though not the ideal matchup and since the Browns passing game has not yielded much fantasy success, it may be wise to look elsewhere.
Taylor Gabriel - - Just not being used enough to merit starting him, especially with a less than ideal matchup.
Miles Austin - - Still waiting for him to do something to show up on the fantasy radar. Got a feeling we could be waiting a long while, so I'd pass again.
Travis Benjamin - - Has had some big moments, but also some stinkers. So while he could surprise, it may be in your best interests to explore other options.

Jordan Cameron - - Coming off a tough week, albeit one that could have been much better if Hoyer had been on his game. Not a bad matchup and probably the only piece of the Browns passing attack worth gambling on and even he is no sure thing.

Billy Cundiff - - The offense is coming off a rough week, though at least they get to come home to face a struggling defense, which should allow them to bounce back.

Cleveland Browns - - The defense has play makers and definitely could take advantage of facing a rookie QB on an offense that has had plenty of ups and downs.

Indianapolis Colts at Pittsburgh Steelers - Sunday 4:25pm

Indianapolis Colts

Andrew Luck - - Continues to put up monster numbers, so even though the Steelers have a solid pass defense, you have to keep riding one of the hottest players in all of fantasy football.

Trent Richardson - - Dealing with an injured hamstring and since even when 100% he wasn't exactly lighting it up, it may be wise to look elsewhere.
Dan Herron - - If Richardson were unable to play, he could see a little extra action, though probably not enough to consider starting him.
Ahmad Bradshaw - - Coming off another big game and with T-Rich banged up, he could be even busier against the Steelers. The split touches were really all that was holding him back from being a top back, so may be a nice game to rely on him.

T.Y. Hilton - - Another week, another big game and with Luck on fire, it shouldn't matter that he doesn't have the ideal matchup. Keep on riding Luck's go to receiver.
Reggie Wayne - - Dealing with an injured elbow and there is a legitimate chance he is forced to sit out.
Hakeem Nicks - - Continues to see very little action as a receiver, so I'd continue to forget about starting him. Maybe with Wayne banged up, he could see a little more action, but I still couldn't pull the trigger on starting him.
Donte Moncrief - - The rookie continues to force his way past Nicks, though still not being used near enough to merit starting him. A banged up Wayne could help his cause, though probably not enough to merit starting him (Although I wouldn't be overly surprised if he produced).

Dwayne Allen - - Found the end zone against the Bengals, though would like to see a little more consistency. A banged up Wayne could mean Luck leans a little more on the tight ends, so could be worth taking a chance on him.
Coby Fleener - - Has his moments, though Allen is probably the better option. Though with Wayne dinged up, it could mean more action for Fleener, so you never know.

Adam Vinatieri - - The offense continues to light it up, though playing on the road against a defense that does have some weapons, could mean a couple/few field goal attempts, which should make him a strong option.

Indianapolis Colts - - The defense continues to play well and facing an offense that has had some ups and downs, while struggling to protect Big Ben. So they certainly are worth another shot.

Pittsburgh Steelers

Ben Roethlisberger - - Has his moments, though facing a defense that has really been tough to throw on, though he has some play makers that could help his cause. Though still would rather lean on quite a few other options.

Le'Veon Bell - - Coming off another big game as he continues to give defenses fits as a receiver. Has a tough matchup, but has been one of the top backs in the league and should be heavily involved in the offense yet again, so I'd keep on riding him.

Antonio Brown - - Continues to put up strong numbers, though will need to bring his A game against a strong Colts defense. But as he has shown in the past, he can give even the best secondary fits and has been too hot to not keep riding.
Markus Wheaton - - Has his moments and can make big plays, but really don't like the matchup against the Colts, so may be a good week to strongly consider other options.
Martavis Bryant - - Found the end zone with a deep ball on his first career reception. Expect him to be a rare big play or nothing, at least at this point of his career. A tough matchup likely will make it tough for him to do it again.
Lance Moore - - Found the end zone, but still not being used enough to merit starting him, especially against a strong pass defense.
Justin Brown - - Just not seeing enough action to consider him worth gambling on, especially against a tough pass defense.
Darrius Heyward-Bey - - Still not being used much, so I'd continue to forget about him.

Heath Miller - - Likely needs a touchdown to merit starting and once you factor in the tough matchup, you may be better off looking elsewhere for a starting tight end.

Shaun Suisham - - The offense has been up and down thus far and will have their hands full with a Colts defense that has been playing well and coming off a shutout of the Bengals (Albeit a banged up Bengals offense).

Pittsburgh Steelers - - The defense has been up and down, though face a Colts offense that has been on fire, so even playing at home may not help their cause.

Green Bay Packers at New Orleans Saints - Sunday 8:30pm

Green Bay Packers

Aaron Rodgers - - Has been on fire lately and against a struggling Saints pass defense, he should be able to keep it going, even playing on the road. Keep on riding him.

Eddie Lacy - - Coming off a nice game and with Starks banged up, it could mean a larger role. Though the Saints have a solid run defense, which may mean more airing it out (That could help him in PPR leagues, at least if Starks is limited).
James Starks - - Dealing with an injured ankle and even if he can play, you wonder if he will be limited. As the 2nd option, it may be wise to avoid him when he is banged up.
DuJuan Harris - - If Starks were unable to go, he could see some action, though probably not enough to consider him for your team.
John Kuhn - - Can find the end zone any week, but if he misses out, he has no value at all. So just way too much risk to go with limited upside.

Jordy Nelson - - Continues to put up strong numbers week-in, week-out and has another great matchup, so definitely start him. Heck, even if the matchup was poor, you have to keep riding him.
Randall Cobb - - Coming off another huge performance as he just keeps making big plays. An exceptional matchup makes him a no brainer again, though at this point he has reached start every week level.
Davante Adams - - The rookie found the end zone against the Panthers, though that was his only reception. A good matchup should help his cause, though still would like to see him used a little more before relying on him (Especially considering he high level Nelson and Cobb are playing at).
Jarrett Boykin - - Returned from injury last week, though you wouldn't know from the box score as he didn't catch a ball (Or even get a target). So continue to forget about him.

Andrew Quarless - - Just not being targeted much, so I'd continue to forget about him.
Richard Rodgers - - In the same boat as Quarless, so move along.

Mason Crosby - - The Packers offense should keep the good times rolling against a struggling defense, though playing on the road could lead to more FG attempts.

Green Bay Packers - - The defense has been playing well, though face a capable offense that is usually pretty tough at home, although they haven't quite been as tough this season. Not the best week to rely on the Green Bay defense, but you can probably do worse.

New Orleans Saints

Drew Brees - - Coming off another strong performance, though will have his hands full against a strong pass defense with his go to receiver not at 100%. But he may be forced to put up plenty of points and he can light up anyone at anytime, so keep riding him especially since he is playing at home.

Mark Ingram - - Was bottled up last week, though has a good chance to bounce back against a Packers defense that has really struggled to stop the run, so hopefully he can return to him pre-injury form and merit a shot.
Pierre Thomas - - Expected to miss another game or two, so keep passing on him. Heck even when he is back, you likely will do the same.
Khiry Robinson - - Dealing with an injured forearm, which could limit him or force him to sit out. Ingram may be the more used option, though he does have a good matchup, so could surprise.
Travaris Cadet - - Still more of a receiving threat, so could provide some value in PPR leagues, though I'd still rather go with an option more involved in the offense.

Marques Colston - - Coming off a big game and while the matchup is a poor one, the Saints and Colston can get it done through the air via anyone.
Brandin Cooks - - Like most rookie receivers, he has been inconsistent and against a good pass defense, if may be a good time to explore other options. That being said, when Brees is your QB, you can produce against anyone.
Kenny Stills - - Coming off a big game, though he has been a boom-or-bust option, one with a tough matchup so may not be the ideal week to dust him off.
Robert Meachem - - A big play or nothing, so I'd continue to forget about him as he is more likely to lay an egg than get you anything to write home about.
Joseph Morgan - - Just not being used near enough to consider him fantasy worthy.

Jimmy Graham - - Struggled last week as the shoulder clearly was a factor. Still not 100%, but another week removed from the injury should help his cause and even with a tough matchup, his upside is just too good to pass up. So if he can play, you pretty much have to start him.
Ben Watson - - Even if Graham can't go, just doesn't look like he will be used much, not to mention he faces a tough matchup.

Shayne Graham - - The offense is usually pretty tough at home, though facing a good pass defense could mean they struggle to finish drives and rely on the leg of Graham.

New Orleans Saints - - The struggling defense likely will be in for another long day against Aaron Rodgers and the rolling Packers offense.

Washington Redskins at Dallas Cowboys - Monday 8:30pm

Washington Redskins

Robert Griffin III - - Has a chance to start, but with it being a Monday night game and facing a solid defense, it is probably in your best interests to look elsewhere.
Colt McCoy - - Expected to start this week and showed some potential last week, though during his career has not done enough to merit starting him especially against a solid defense.
Kirk Cousins - - After struggling, he has been dropped to No. 3, so you can forget about him again.

Alfred Morris - - Continues to not live up to the hype and not the best matchup. Still you can do worse than Morris who is more than capable of getting it done.
Roy Helu - - With Morris not exactly lighting it up, he could see a little more action. Still not being used consistently enough to start him.

Pierre Garcon - - Has a tough matchup, but typically puts up nice numbers. The QB change may not help his cause, although he has produced without the QB position exactly lighting it up.
DeSean Jackson - - Can make a big play at any time, though dealing with another QB change and a tough matchup, so has more risk than usual. I wouldn't be afraid to start him though.
Andre Roberts - - While he may have some good moments, he usually isn't producing enough to merit starting him, especially when you consider the matchup and the QB change.
Ryan Grant - - The rookie just isn't doing enough to merit starting him.

Jordan Reed - - Has started to find his groove and is a tough matchup for the defense, so certainly a guy worth keeping in the lineup, though the QB change could have an impact (Though could be good or bad).
Niles Paul - - While he may make a play at times, with Reed healthy he likely is too inconsistent to merit starting him.

Kai Forbath - - The offense is in the midst of another QB change and against a good defense, on the road, who knows what you may get from the offense. Could be a key scoring option as touchdowns could be tough to come by.

Washington Redskins - - The defense has struggled and will have their hands full as they take to the road to face a Cowboys offense that has been on quite a roll.

Dallas Cowboys

Tony Romo - - Coming off a big game, though facing a good pass defense, though he has had plenty of success against the Redskins during his career (As well as some iffy performances). With the weapons he has, he can certainly find the end zone multiple times any week, so certainly worth starting once again, even though he does have a little more risk.

DeMarco Murray - - Now the record holder for most 100 yard games to open the season and will look to extend the record to eight games. The Redskins have a solid run defense, but Murray is running so well the 1985 Bears could struggle to contain him. Keep riding him without even giving it a second thought.
Joseph Randle - - Not being used much, so continue to forget about him.
Lance Dunbar - - In the same boat as Randle, so keep on looking for RB help.

Dez Bryant - - Coming off another huge game and as hot as he is, who cares about the matchup. Just be happy you have him and keep riding him.
Terrance Williams - - Has his moments and can make plays, but not the best matchup so you may want to explore other options.
Cole Beasley - - He is not being used much and not a guy with any real fantasy value, especially with a tough matchup on MNF.
Devin Street - - Just not being used much, so I'd continue to forget about him.

Jason Witten - - Continues to struggle to produce and facing a solid pass defense, one that shut him down in both meetings last season. If Romo decides to get him more involved, he is capable of producing, but he has become a frustrating option.
Gavin Escobar - - Coming off a big two touchdown performance, though he only has seven receptions on the season. Could surprise, but not the best matchup and is likely a touchdown or nothing.

Dan Bailey - - The Redskins defense could make it tough on the Cowboys in the red zone and force them to rely heavily on the leg of Bailey, so definitely should be an excellent week to rely on him.

Dallas Cowboys - - The defense continues to make plays and facing an offense that is dealing with a QB change and has had some issues with consistency.

Favorite: Dallas Cowboys by 9
Prediction: Dallas Cowboys 26 - Washington Redskins 16
