luck11Quarterback
1 Andrew Luck, Indianapolis vs. Tennessee …This one should be a shoot-out — Tennessee allows 308 yards passing per game over its past three games (3rd-worst), while Luck comes off a bye-week to prep and had a 353-yard passing game with 3 TDs in Week 7 at Tennessee
2 Marcus Mariota, Tennessee at Indianapolis …Mariota has thrown for multiple touchdowns in six games in a row, with an incredible 17:3 touchdown-to-interception ratio on the season while Indianapolis allows 288 yards passing per game (2nd-worst)
3 Aaron Rodgers, Green Bay at Washington
4 Tom Brady, New England at San Francisco …Off a loss, look for Brady and company to get out their frustration against a defense allowing a league-worst 31.4 points per game (although how much will Brady need to throw, and how many of the scores will go to LeGarrette Blount again this week — the 49ers easily have the 32nd-ranked defense against the run)
5 Drew Brees, New Orleans at Carolina …On 49 passing attempts, Brees threw for 465 yards with 4 TDs against the Panthers’ defense in Week 6
6 Cam Newton, Carolina vs. New Orleans …If ever there was a get-right game for Cam and the Panthers it is home against the Saints — in his past four games against the Saints, Newton averages 299 passing yards, 42 rushing yards and 4 total TDs per game
7 Matthew Stafford, Detroit vs. Jacksonville
8 Russell Wilson, Seattle vs. Philadelphia …Wilson followed up his big “breakout game” in Week 9 with an even bigger one last week, putting up 348 passing yards and 3 TDs in a big win over the Patriots — Wilson looks completely back to health and he’s locked in as a QB1 this week
9 Kirk Cousins, Washington vs. Green Bay …Green Bay has been giving up points by the bushel of late — a league-worst 37 points per game over their past three games
10 Ben Roethlisberger, Pittsburgh at Cleveland …Cleveland is one of two teams allowing more than 30 points per game
11 Blake Bortles, Jacksonville at Detroit …Bortles looks horrible, but he should get more garbage-time stats here plus Detroit has allowed opposing quarterbacks to complete 74.1 percent of passes, worst in the league
12 Dak Prescott, Dallas vs. Baltimore …Prescott just seems to get better and better — he’s averaging 277 yards passing per game over his last four with 10 TDs
13 Eli Manning, N.Y. Giants vs. Chicago
14 Derek Carr, Oakland vs. Houston …Houston allows the 2nd-fewest fantasy points to opposing quarterbacks
15 Tyrod Taylor, Buffalo at Cincinnati
16 Andy Dalton, Cincinnati vs. Buffalo
17 Alex Smith, Kansas City vs. Tampa Bay …Tampa allows a league-worst 328 yards passing over their past three weeks
18 Colin Kaepernick, San Francisco vs. New England
19 Jameis Winston, Tampa Bay at Kansas City
20 Carson Palmer, Arizona at Minnesota …This is a week to slide your Cardinals down a notch — Minnesota allows a league-low 16.9 points per week, while Palmer has thrown just 6 TDs in his past six games
21 Joe Flacco, Baltimore at Dallas
22 Carson Wentz, Philadelphia at Seattle
23 Ryan Tannehill, Miami at Los Angeles …The Rams allow just 12 points per week over their past three games, #1 in the league
24 Jared Goff, Los Angeles vs. Miami …The number one overall pick will (finally) make his NFL debut this week, over-taking Case Keenum
25 Sam Bradford, Minnesota vs. Arizona
26 Brock Osweiler, Houston at Oakland
27 Cody Kessler, Cleveland vs. Pittsburgh …Kessler was benched in-game last week but he will again get the start this week
28 Jay Cutler, Chicago at N.Y. Giants …Hard not to ding Jay Cutler significantly with Alshon Jeffery suspended for four games — the Bears have just 13 TDs this season, tied for last in the NFL

 

Running Back
1 LeVeon Bell, Pittsburgh at Cleveland …Cleveland ranks 31st against the run
2 Ezekiel Elliott, Dallas vs. Baltimore …Elliott doesn’t drop much of course, but Baltimore allows a league-worst 71.3 rushing yards per game
3 LeGarrette Blount, New England at San Francisco …The LeGarrette Blount show should be in full-force again this week (Blount leads the NFL with 12 TDs), against a 49ers’ defense easily the worst against the run at 180.4 yards per game
4 DeMarco Murray, Tennessee at Indianapolis …Murray now has a touchdown in five straight games
5 David Johnson, Arizona at Minnesota …Mr. consistency David Johnson tallied another 100-yard game last week, which he’s done every game this season (Johnson is on pace for 2,156 total yards and 71 receptions) — although against Minnesota could will a challenge at least (they’ve allowed under 80 yards rushing over their past four games at home)
6 Spencer Ware, Kansas City vs. Tampa Bay …Tampa Bay is allowing 136.4 rushing yards per game since Week 5, the 4th most in the league
7 LeSean McCoy, Buffalo at Cincinnati

9 Theo Riddick, Detroit vs. Jacksonville
10 Todd Gurley, Los Angeles vs. Miami
11 Lamar Miller, Houston at Oakland
12 Jay Ajayi, Miami at Los Angeles
13 Jordan Howard, Chicago at N.Y. Giants …Howard (leg) missed most of the second-half of last week’s game and will need to be monitored
14 Robert Kelley, Washington vs. Green Bay …Kelley pounded out 97 yards on 22 carries last week against Minnesota — look for Kelley to again collect 20-plus attempts this week against a defense allowing an NFL-worst 37 points per game over their past three games
15 Frank Gore, Indianapolis vs. Tennessee
16 C.J. Prosise, Seattle vs. Philadelphia …Prosise had his coming out party against the Patriots last week and looked pretty dynamic doing it with 153 total yards and racking up 7 receptions on 7 targets (and 87 of his 153 yards through the air) — Prosise and Thomas Rawls will split the work this week
17 Jonathan Stewart, Carolina vs. New Orleans …New Orleans allows the 2nd-most fantasy points to opposing running backs, and Stewart had 2 TDs in their meeting earlier this year
18 Giovani Bernard, Cincinnati vs. Buffalo
19 Mark Ingram, New Orleans at Carolina …Carolina allows just 79 rushing yards per game (2nd-lowest)
20 Rashad Jennings, N.Y. Giants vs. Chicago …Chicago allows the fewest fantasy points to opposing running backs

22 Doug Martin, Tampa Bay at Kansas City
23 Jeremy Hill, Cincinnati vs. Buffalo
24 James White, New England at San Francisco
25 Thomas Rawls, Seattle vs. Philadelphia …Christine Michael has been released, while Rawls is set to make his 2016 debut

27 Isaiah Crowell, Cleveland vs. Pittsburgh
28 James Starks, Green Bay at Washington
29 Ryan Mathews, Philadelphia at Seattle
30 Chris Ivory, Jacksonville at Detroit
31 Carlos Hyde, San Francisco vs. New England …Hyde should be better this week but expectations should be kept in check — Hyde ran just for 14 yards on 13 attempts last week
32 Duke Johnson Jr., Cleveland vs. Pittsburgh
33 Darren Sproles, Philadelphia at Seattle
34 Chris Thompson, Washington vs. Green Bay
35 Derrick Henry, Tennessee at Indianapolis
36 Dwayne Washington, Detroit vs. Jacksonville …It’s a gut call, but Washington could be a sneaky sleeper this week against a defense allowing 152.3 yards rushing per game over its past three (3rd-worst) and maybe Washington gets a chance to salt this one away late assuming Detroit gets up large against the stumbling Jaguars
37 Mike Gillislee, Buffalo at Cincinnati
38 Terrance West, Baltimore at Dallas
39 Tim Hightower, New Orleans at Carolina
40 Jerick McKinnon, Minnesota vs. Arizona
41 Jeremy Langford, Chicago at N.Y. Giants

1 Antonio Brown, Pittsburgh at Cleveland
2 Odell Beckham Jr., N.Y. Giants vs. Chicago …After no scores in his first four games, the Odell Beckham Jr. flood-gates have re-opened up with 5 TDs in his past five games, while Chicago allows the most fantasy points to opposing wide receivers
3 T.Y. Hilton, Indianapolis vs. Tennessee
4 A.J. Green, Cincinnati vs. Buffalo …Buffalo has allowed 100 points over its’ past three games — look for A.J. Green to get some of that this week

7 Allen Robinson, Jacksonville at Detroit …Robinson is finally heating up, with 16 receptions, 183 yards and 2 TDs over his past two games
8 Jordy Nelson, Green Bay at Washington

10 Kelvin Benjamin, Carolina vs. New Orleans …Benjamin has at least 70 yards receiving in five straight games, and he’s due for a score
11 Brandin Cooks, New Orleans at Carolina
12 Larry Fitzgerald, Arizona at Minnesota …Fitzgerald will return to Minnesota where he’s from, although Minnesota allows the 2nd-fewest fantasy points to opposing wide receivers

44 Kendall Wright, Tennessee at Indianapolis
45 Michael Floyd, Arizona at Minnesota

7 Travis Kelce, Kansas City vs. Tampa Bay
8 Jimmy Graham, Seattle vs. Philadelphia …Philadelphia allows the 2nd-fewest fantasy points to opposing tight ends

10 Jason Witten, Dallas vs. Baltimore

13 Cameron Brate, Tampa Bay at Kansas City …Brate has a touchdown in three straight games
