Haden will miss his second consecutive game today due to a groin issue, and with Haden out, the Browns atrocious pass defense will surely suffer at the hands of the Bengals. A.J. Green and Andy Dalton both make for great plays today against a Browns defense that has allowed 20.7 points per game to opposing quarterbacks and 12.5 points per game to opposing WR1s.
After a monster performance against the Steelers where he rushed for 204 yards and two touchdowns, Ajayi will get another start at running back today against the Bills. Buffalo has allowed opposing running backs to average 14.5 fantasy points per game against them this season, but seeing that Ajayi has only had one great performance so far in 2016, he's a bit of a risky play.
Washington will miss his third straight game due to an ankle injury, which is unfortunate seeing that he could have gotten plenty of carries today with Theo Riddick out. With both Riddick and Washington deemed inactive today, Detroit will opt to use more short passes in lieu of running the ball, which gives a bump in value to Anquan Boldin and Golden Tate.
Murray, who has missed the last two games due to a turf toe injury, will be active for the Raiders today against the Jaguars. He should be considered the starting running back for Oakland today, and he makes for an interesting, if not unspectacular fantasy play today seeing that he's had 10 touches in every game he's played in this season. The Jaguars have been stingy against opposing running backs, however, allowing them to average just over nine fantasy points per game in 2016.
Charles is active for the Chiefs tilt against the Saints, despite experiencing swelling in his surgically repaired knee earlier this week. Charles will have a limited workload, so he has very limited fantasy upside today. Spencer Ware is the back to play today for Kansas City, who face off against a Saints run defense that has allowed opposing running backs to average over 16 fantasy points per game so far this season.
Harris took a hard hit on a punt return late in the first half and had to be carted off, so it's no surprise that he is questionable to return to the game. Odell Beckham came in to the game to return a punt on the last drive in place of Harris.
