Quarterback

1 Kirk Cousins, Washington vs. Carolina

3 Carson Palmer, Arizona vs. New Orleans
4 Russell Wilson, Seattle vs. Los Angeles …Wilson and the Seahawks average slightly more than double the points at home, so look for plenty of points to be had from your Seahawks this this week
5 Derek Carr, Oakland at San Diego
6 Philip Rivers, San Diego vs. Oakland
7 Tom Brady, New England at Denver …Perhaps Brady will shred the Denver defense next — although Denver allows just 0.8 passing TDs per game, fewest in the NFL
8 Dak Prescott, Dallas vs. Tampa Bay …Prescott has passed for under 200 yards in three straight games while the Bucs’ defense has been playing very well of late
9 Andrew Luck, Indianapolis at Minnesota …Minnesota allows the fewest points per game (17.3)
10 Joe Flacco, Baltimore vs. Philadelphia
11 Ben Roethlisberger, Pittsburgh at Cincinnati
12 Drew Brees, New Orleans at Arizona …Coming off two games with 0 TDs and 6 INTs, and now on the road, Brees has to drop in the rankings this week (now watch him go off) especially against Arizona who allow the second-fewest passing yards per game
13 Aaron Rodgers, Green Bay at Chicago …UPDATE: The Packers are sliding down some in the rankings as the Bears/Packers game will play in what is going to be perhaps the coldest game ever on record at Soldier Field in sub-zero degree tempature, plus Rodgers is battling a calf injury

17 Jameis Winston, Tampa Bay at Dallas
18 Andy Dalton, Cincinnati vs. Pittsburgh

6 DeMarco Murray, Tennessee at Kansas City
7 Latavius Murray, Oakland at San Diego
8 Lamar Miller, Houston vs. Jacksonville
9 Carlos Hyde, San Francisco at Atlanta …Hyde comes off a career-best day with 200 total yards and he should keep it going this week at Atlanta who allow the 2nd-most fantasy points to opposing running backs
10 Kenneth Farrow, San Diego vs. Oakland …Farrow may split work with Ronnie Hillman assuming Melvin Gordon is out — Oakland has given up a league-high 7 rushing TDs in their past three games; UPDATE: Gordon has been ruled out, and Farrow has reportedly put in a good week of practice as the lead back

22 Doug Martin, Tampa Bay at Dallas
23 Jonathan Stewart, Carolina at Washington
24 Bilal Powell, N.Y. Jets vs. Miami …Powell comes off a huge game with nearly 180 yards and he should be the Jets’ starter this week with Matt Forte (knee) injured last week, and this week Powell gets a nice match-up against Miami who allows the third-most rushing yards per game; UPDATE: Forte may noyt be ruled out for this one
25 Todd Gurley, Los Angeles at Seattle …Seattle allows the 2nd-fewest fantasy points per game to opposing running backs
26 T.J. Yeldon, Jacksonville at Houston
27 Mike Gillislee, Buffalo vs. Cleveland …At home against a Cleveland defense that ranks 31st against the run and 26th against rushing touchdowns should give Gillislee a very reasonable chance at a touchdown this week (if not potentially two)
28 Terrance West, Baltimore vs. Philadelphia
29 Rashad Jennings, N.Y. Giants vs. Detroit
30 Mark Ingram, New Orleans at Arizona …Arizona allows the fewest fantasy points per game to opposing running backs

45 Derrick Henry, Tennessee at Kansas City

48 Christine Michael, Green Bay at ChicagoUPDATE: James Starks has been ruled out, leaving Michael and Ty Montgomery to split the work
49 James White, New England at Denver

41 J.J. Nelson, Arizona vs. New Orleans …Nelson has 3 TDs in his past two games (although on just two catches, with one score on the ground) but he should have a larger role with Michael Floyd having been released
