lesean1Quarterback
1 Drew Brees, New Orleans vs. Tampa Bay
2 Tom Brady, New England vs. N.Y. Jets
3 Jameis Winston, Tampa Bay at New Orleans
4 Cam Newton, Carolina vs. Atlanta …Newton comes into this one with his first 300-yard passing game since Week 6 and he should be able to produce again this week against Atlanta, who allows the most fantasy points to opposing quarterbacks
5 Andrew Luck, Indianapolis at Oakland
6 Matt Ryan, Atlanta at Carolina …There should be yards to be had here — Carolina ranks dead last against the pass, allowing nearly 275 yards passing per game, while Ryan had 503 yards and 4 TDs in their earlier match-up
7 Derek Carr, Oakland vs. Indianapolis
8 Aaron Rodgers, Green Bay vs. Minnesota
9 Dak Prescott, Dallas vs. Detroit
10 Russell Wilson, Seattle vs. Arizona

14 Ben Roethlisberger, Pittsburgh vs. Baltimore
15 Marcus Mariota, Tennessee at Jacksonville
16 Tyrod Taylor, Buffalo vs. Miami

18 Trevor Siemian, Denver at Kansas City
19 Tom Savage, Houston vs. Cincinnati

25 Andy Dalton, Cincinnati at Houston …Houston allows the 2nd-fewest passing yards per game

27 Sam Bradford, Minnesota at Green Bay
28 Blake Bortles, Jacksonville vs. Tennessee
29 Carson Wentz, Philadelphia vs. N.Y. Giants …The Giants have allowed just 37 total points over their past three games, 2nd-lowest in the NFL
30 Alex Smith, Kansas City vs. Denver
31 Bryce Petty, N.Y. Jets at New England
32 Robert Griffin III, Cleveland vs. San Diego

 

Running Back
1 Ezekiel Elliott, Dallas vs. Detroit …Can Zeke do it — he needs just 129 yards in each of his final two games to break Eric Dickerson’s single-season rookie rushing record
2 LeSean McCoy, Buffalo vs. Miami …McCoy comes into this game on fire, and should keep the great times going this week against Miami who rank 30th-against the run
3 LeVeon Bell, Pittsburgh vs. Baltimore
4 David Johnson, Arizona at Seattle …Johnson is as match-up proof as they come, including at Seattle against a Seahawks’ defense that allows the fewest fantasy points to opposing running backs
5 DeMarco Murray, Tennessee at Jacksonville
6 Latavius Murray, Oakland vs. Indianapolis
7 Jordan Howard, Chicago vs. Washington …Howard has turned into a workhorse — Howard is averaging 109 total yards per game over his past ten games
8 Todd Gurley, Los Angeles vs. San Francisco …One of 2016’s top bust picks, Gurley doesn’t have a 100-yard rushing game this season but he could finally get one this week at home against San Francisco who rank worst against the run
9 Devonta Freeman, Atlanta at Carolina
10 Jay Ajayi, Miami at Buffalo …Buffalo has been leaky of late against the run, ranking 30th over the past three games, and Buffalo allows the second-most rushing touchdowns per game at 1.4
11 Jonathan Stewart, Carolina vs. Atlanta …Stewart has a good chance to score in this one and comes into this week’s game with 8 TDs in his past nine games
12 Frank Gore, Indianapolis at Oakland
13 LeGarrette Blount, New England vs. N.Y. Jets
14 Mark Ingram, New Orleans vs. Tampa Bay
15 Carlos Hyde, San Francisco at Los Angeles
16 Dion Lewis, New England vs. N.Y. Jets

28 Duke Johnson Jr., Cleveland vs. San Diego

31 Justin Forsett, Denver at Kansas City
32 Jeremy Hill, Cincinnati at Houston
33 Isaiah Crowell, Cleveland vs. San Diego
34 Mike Gillislee, Buffalo vs. Miami …Gillislee has 3 TDs in his past three games and capable of adding a touchdown on any given week
35 T.J. Yeldon, Jacksonville vs. Tennessee
36 Paul Perkins, N.Y. Giants at Philadelphia
37 Robert Turbin, Indianapolis at Oakland
38 Rashad Jennings, N.Y. Giants at Philadelphia
39 Charles Sims, Tampa Bay at New Orleans
40 Alfred Blue, Houston vs. Cincinnati …UPDATE: Blue is looking like he will get the start with Lamar Miller likely sitting this week
41 Dwayne Washington, Detroit at Dallas …UPDATE: Theo Riddick (wrist) is expected to be out this week
42 Chris Thompson, Washington at Chicago
43 Jalen Richard, Oakland vs. Indianapolis
44 Ronnie Hillman, San Diego at Cleveland
45 Lamar Miller, Houston vs. Cincinnati …UPDATE: Miller (ankle) may not play this week, especially in a meaningless game for the Texans (who will need to win in Week 17 against Tennessee for a winner-take-all game in the AFC South)
46 Travaris Cadet, New Orleans vs. Tampa Bay
47 James White, New England vs. N.Y. Jets
48 Rex Burkhead, Cincinnati at Houston

57 Darren McFadden, Dallas vs. Detroit
58 Jamize Olawale, Oakland vs. Indianapolis
59 DeAndre Washington, Oakland vs. Indianapolis
60 Jeremy Langford, Chicago vs. Washington

 

Wide Receivers
1 Antonio Brown, Pittsburgh vs. Baltimore
2 Mike Evans, Tampa Bay at New Orleans …Evans sure does seem well overdue, under 60 yards in three straight games with zero touchdowns — while Evans has just 12 career receptions and 135 yards in four career games versus the Saints we are trusting the talent
3 Brandin Cooks, New Orleans vs. Tampa Bay
4 T.Y. Hilton, Indianapolis at Oakland
5 Odell Beckham Jr., N.Y. Giants at Philadelphia …Beckham is a top-shelf option in this one, averaging 6 receptions, 75 yards and 0.8 TDs per game in five career games against Philadelphia
6 DeAndre Hopkins, Houston vs. Cincinnati …Having Tom Savage at quarterback is a nice boost for Hopkins here in the fantasy playoffs — Hopkins had a season-high 17 targets last week
7 Julian Edelman, New England vs. N.Y. Jets
8 Julio Jones, Atlanta at Carolina …Jones (toe) will need to be monitored but you would think this is the right time and game to fire him up assuming he is able to go
9 Michael Thomas, New Orleans vs. Tampa Bay
10 Ty Montgomery, Green Bay vs. Minnesota
11 Dez Bryant, Dallas vs. Detroit
12 Michael Crabtree, Oakland vs. Indianapolis
13 Amari Cooper, Oakland vs. Indianapolis
14 Jordy Nelson, Green Bay vs. Minnesota …It’s a tough match-up but Nelson can’t drop too far — Nelson is the #1 fantasy receiver over the past five weeks
15 Demaryius Thomas, Denver at Kansas City
16 Golden Tate, Detroit at Dallas
17 Willie Snead, New Orleans vs. Tampa Bay
18 Emmanuel Sanders, Denver at Kansas City
19 Doug Baldwin, Seattle vs. Arizona
20 Davante Adams, Green Bay vs. Minnesota
21 Jarvis Landry, Miami at Buffalo
22 Kenny Britt, Los Angeles vs. San Francisco
23 Pierre Garcon, Washington at Chicago
24 Tyreek Hill, Kansas City vs. Denver …On paper it’s a tough match-up, but Hill scored 3 TDs on Denver when they played four weeks ago
25 Alshon Jeffery, Chicago vs. Washington …Look for Josh Norman to shadow Jeffery this week
26 DeSean Jackson, Washington at Chicago
27 Rishard Matthews, Tennessee at Jacksonville
28 Larry Fitzgerald, Arizona at Seattle
29 Dontrelle Inman, San Diego at Cleveland …Inman’s full-season pace over his past four games is a would-be season of 76 receptions, 1,228 yards and 12 TDs
30 Jamison Crowder, Washington at Chicago
31 Ted Ginn Jr., Carolina vs. Atlanta …Ginn has 4 TDs in his past five games — Ginn has been the 13th-best fantasy receivers over the past four weeks
32 Travis Benjamin, San Diego at Cleveland …Benjamin makes for an interesting play, making his first return back to his former team in Cleveland
33 Steve Smith, Baltimore at Pittsburgh
34 Tyler Lockett, Seattle vs. Arizona
35 Malcolm Mitchell, New England vs. N.Y. Jets
36 Sterling Shepard, N.Y. Giants at Philadelphia
37 Donte Moncrief, Indianapolis at Oakland …Moncrief (hamstring) will need to be monitored but he looks like he will return this week; UPDATE: Moncrief is not on the Colts’ final injury report
38 Tavon Austin, Los Angeles vs. San Francisco
39 Mike Wallace, Baltimore at Pittsburgh …Wallace makes a return to Heinz Field this week
40 Allen Robinson, Jacksonville vs. Tennessee …Robinson is only a deep roll of the dice at this point, but Tennessee allows the most fantasy points to opposing wide receivers
41 Jordan Matthews, Philadelphia vs. N.Y. Giants
42 Anquan Boldin, Detroit at Dallas
43 Sammy Watkins, Buffalo vs. Miami
44 Stefon Diggs, Minnesota at Green Bay
45 Will Fuller, Houston vs. Cincinnati

50 Cole Beasley, Dallas vs. Detroit
51 Chris Hogan, New England vs. N.Y. Jets
52 Tyrell Williams, San Diego at Cleveland
53 Terrelle Pryor, Cleveland vs. San Diego …Pryor is expected to play but he is dealing with a torn ligament in his finger
54 Marqise Lee, Jacksonville vs. Tennessee
55 Marvin Jones, Detroit at Dallas
56 Adam Humphries, Tampa Bay at New Orleans
57 Jeremy Maclin, Kansas City vs. Denver
58 Brandon LaFell, Cincinnati at Houston
59 A.J. Green, Cincinnati at Houston …UPDATE: Green (hamstring) is looking dicey to play this week and is being lowered in the rankings

1 Greg Olsen, Carolina vs. Atlanta
2 Delanie Walker, Tennessee at Jacksonville

5 Zach Ertz, Philadelphia vs. N.Y. Giants …Ertz leads all tight ends in targets over the past five weeks
6 Kyle Rudolph, Minnesota at Green Bay
7 Jason Witten, Dallas vs. Detroit
8 Charles Clay, Buffalo vs. Miami …Clay has scored in two straight games and gets to face his former team this week for added motivation
9 Jimmy Graham, Seattle vs. Arizona
10 Hunter Henry, San Diego at Cleveland …There is room for both Henry and Antonio Gates to get in the action this week — Cleveland allows the most fantasy points to opposing tight ends
11 Martellus Bennett, New England vs. N.Y. Jets
12 Eric Ebron, Detroit at Dallas
13 Antonio Gates, San Diego at Cleveland …Gates needs 2 TDs to tie the NFL all-time record for touchdowns by a tight end so perhaps Phillip Rivers looks his way first in the red-zone
14 Vernon Davis, Washington at Chicago …UPDATE: Jordan Reed is expected to be out this week
15 Jared Cook, Green Bay vs. Minnesota

17 C.J. Fiedorowicz, Houston vs. Cincinnati
