NFL Matchups - Week 10 Preview

Carolina Panthers vs. Pittsburgh Steelers

Venue: Heinz Field(Pittsburgh)Thu. 11-8 @ 8:20 pm ESTOver/Under: 51

   Weather

Carolina Panthers at Pittsburgh Steelers (-4), Thursday, 8:20 pm EST.

Last meeting (9/21/14): The Steelers won 37-19. Ben Roethlisberger threw for 196 yards and two touchdowns. Le’Veon Bell rushed for 147 yards on 21 carries. Antonio Brown caught ten passes for 90 yards and two touchdowns. Cam Newton threw for 250 yards and a touchdown. Jonathan Stewart rushed for 31 yards on five carries. Kelvin Benjamin caught eight passes for 115 yards and a touchdown.

Carolina Panthers

Cam Newton - Newton threw for 247 yards and two touchdowns versus the Buccaneers. Newton was great once again, carving up the Bucs defense, but unfortunately the Panthers focus more on McCaffrey and the ground game inside the red zone. The Steelers give up the fifth most fantasy points per game to opposing quarterbacks, so it should be the fifth straight week with 20+ points for the stud QB.

Christian McCaffrey - McCaffrey rushed for 79 yards and two touchdowns on 17 carries versus the Buccaneers. McCaffrey had his best game of the season and has now put together five games this season with at least 20 fantasy points. The Steelers have been great against opposing running backs this year, allowing the seventh fewest points per game to the position, but the workload McCaffrey carries between the running and passing game plus his upside makes him an RB1.

Devin Funchess - Funchess caught four passes for 44 yards versus the Buccaneers. Funchess led the wide receivers in targets, but put up a lackluster day in terms of offense. That is largely due to the game script. He gets a nice matchup versus Coty Sensabaugh this week, but is just a WR3 because of his inconsistent targets and play.

D.J. Moore - Moore caught one passes for 16 yards versus the Buccaneers. Moore only received two targets which was disappointing, but he was on the field for over 70% of the offensive plays which says that he should be more involved in the offense. Moore has a decent matchup with Joe Haden this week, so he is a WR4.

Curtis Samuel - Samuel caught two passes for 25 yards and a touchdown and ran in a 33 yards touchdown versus the Buccaneers. This was a nice week, but he isn’t a big enough part of the offense week-to-week.

Greg Olsen - Olsen caught six passes for 76 yards and a touchdown versus the Buccaneers. Olsen continues to re-establish himself as a big part of the offense. The Steelers have allowed the sixth most fantasy points per game to opposing tight ends. TE1.

Pittsburgh Steelers

Ben Roethlisberger - Big Ben threw for 270 yards and two touchdowns and also scored a rushing touchdown versus the Ravens. Big Ben wasn’t overly effective, but he was productive and did not turn the ball over on the road versus a very tough Baltimore defense. He gets the Panthers at home this week in what should be a tough matchup, but with his weapons, he is a QB1.

Le'Veon Bell - Did not play versus the Ravens. Must report by next Tuesday to be eligible for the rest of the season. Is expected to report after Week 10.

James Connor- Connor rushed for 107 yards on 24 carries and caught seven passes for 56 yards and a touchdown versus the Ravens. Connor was great versus what was the best run defense in the league versus running backs. Now he gets the Panthers who have allowed the second fewest points per game to opposing RBs. RB2.

Antonio Brown - Brown caught five passes for 42 yards and a touchdown versus the Ravens. Brown hasn’t been overly impressive this season, but is racking up the points with touchdowns. He gets Donte Jackson in coverage this week, the weaker of the two Carolina corners. WR1.

JuJu Smith-Schuster - Juju caught seven passes for 78 yards versus the Ravens. Smith-Schuster has been hit or miss the last few weeks, but he has scored double digit points in all but one contest this year. WR2.

Prediction: The Steelers win 27-24.

Buffalo Bills vs. New York Jets

Venue: MetLife Stadium(East Rutherford)Sun. 11-11 @ 1:00 pm ESTOver/Under: 36.5

   Weather

Buffalo Bills at New York Jets (-7), Sunday, 1:00pm EST

Last meeting (11/2/17): The Jets won 34-21. Tyrod Taylor threw for 285 yards and two touchdowns. LeSean McCoy rushed for 25 yards on 12 carries. Deonte Thompson caught seven passes for 81 yards and a touchdown. Josh McCown threw for 140 yards and a touchdown. Matt Forte rushed for 77 yards and two touchdowns on 14 carries. Robbie Anderson caught four passes for 48 yards and a touchdown.

Buffalo Bills

Josh Allen - Did not play versus the Bears. Seems unlikely to play this week, but could be back after the bye week for Week 12.

Derek Anderson - Did not play versus the Bears. Will play if he clears concussion protocol. Is not practicing on Wednesday, so that is not a good sign.

Nathan Peterman - Peterman threw for 189 yards and three interceptions and rushed eight times for 46 yards and a touchdown versus the Bears. Will play if the Bills have no other options. You shouldn’t play him even if you don’t QB3.

LeSean McCoy - McCoy rushed for 10 yards on 10 carries and caught four passes for 19 yards versus the Bears. McCoy could not find any running room as the Bears stacked the line to force Peterman to throw. Even worse, he only outcarries Chris Ivory by three carries. At this point McCoy is an RB3 that is boom or bust, but more likely to be the latter.

Kelvin Benjamin - Benjamin caught four passes for 40 yards versus the Bears. Benjamin had nine targets versus the Bears, but still is unplayable with the current offense. WR5.

Zay Jones - Jones caught four passes for 18 yards versus the Bears. Jones led the team’s receivers in snaps, but unfortunately that doesn’t mean much when Peterman prefers to throw the ball to the defenders. WR4.

New York Jets

Sam Darnold - Out

Josh McCown - McCown steps in for the injured rookie this week and could be worth a pickup in 2QB formats. This is a tough matchup versus a Bills team that has allowed the third fewest points per game to opposing QBs, but McCown was great in stretches last season and could be worth a flyer. QB2.

Isaiah Crowell - Crowell rushed for 49 yards on 13 carries versus the Dolphins. Crowell did not get a ton of run due to the struggles of the offense. He should still lead the team in carries, but McGuire’s presence isn’t helping any. The Jets will try and run as much as they can to take pressure off of their rookie QB. RB2.

Elijah McGuire - McGuire rushed for 30 yards on seven carries and caught three passes for 37 yards versus the Dolphins. McGuire is back and that is unfortunate news for Crowell owners. He should get a lot of the passing work out of the backfield and will syphon off carries as well. McGuire is a flex consideration in PPR formats.

Trenton Cannon - Cannon caught one pass for 15 yards versus the Dolphins. With McGuire in the fold, Cannon is no longer interesting.

Robby Anderson - Anderson caught four passes for 32 yards versus the Dolphins. Anderson is mostly a deep threat or a player that needs to have a big play or two in order to make an impact. The Jets offense is just not set up that way right now. Add in a matchup with Tre’Davious White and this is a no go. WR4.

Jermaine Kearse - Kearse caught three passes for 20 yards versus the Dolphins. Kearse led the team in targets last week, but still failed to produce much. He has a tough matchup with Taron Johnson this week, so don’t expect anything. WR5.

Quincy Enunwa - Enunwa caught three passes for 40 yards versus the Dolphins. Enunwa received only four targets, but could start to get more this week now that he is another week removed from being hurt and with a matchup versus Ryan Lewis , who is Buffalo’s worst corner. Enunwa is a sneaky play in deeper formats, but the offense as a whole keeps the ceiling low. WR3.

Chris Herndon - Herndon caught four passes for 62 yards versus the Dolphins. Herndon was the Jets top performer, but that is not saying much. However, with the state of the tight end position as it is, Herndon is an interesting flyer versus the Bills as he now has four straight games with at least eight points.

Prediction: Jets win 13-12.

New England Patriots vs. Tennessee Titans

Venue: LP Field(Nashville)Sun. 11-11 @ 1:00 pm ESTOver/Under: 47

   Weather

New England Patriots at Tennessee Titans (+6.5), Sunday, 1:00pm EST

Last Meeting (1/13/18, Divisional Playoffs): The Patriots won 35-14. Marcus Mariota threw for 254 yards and two touchdowns. Derrick Henry rushed for 28 yards on 12 carries. Eric Decker caught six passes for 85 yards. Tom Brady threw for 337 yards and three touchdowns. Dion Lewis rushed for 62 yards on 15 carries. Danny Amendola caught 11 passes for 112 yards.

New England

Tom Brady - Brady threw for 294 yards and a touchdown versus the Packers. It wasn’t a banner day for Brady, but he came on in the second half of the game to help put the Packers away. He gets a Titans team that has been good against the pass, allowing the seventh fewest fantasy points per game to opposing QBs, but are coming off of a short week. QB1.

Sony Michel - Michel did not play versus the Packers. Michel is expected back after two week missed due to injury. As long as things progress well this week, he should be a low end RB2 versus a tough Tennessee front seven. However, this is something to monitor if the Patriots decide to hold him out one more week because of the upcoming bye.

James White - White rushed for 31 yards and two touchdowns on 12 carries and caught six passes for 72 yards versus the Packers. White had a fantastic night versus the Packers. With Michel out, White and Cordarrelle Patterson handled the load of the offense, but with Michel returning, Patterson becomes irrelevant and White drops from an RB1 to an RB2.

Julian Edelman - Edelman caught six passes for 71 yards versus the Packers. Edelman continues to be one of Brady’s favorite targets. The Titans have a very good secondary and Edelman has a tough matchup in Logan Ryan, but Edelman is a WR2.

Chris Hogan - Hogan did not received a catch versus the Packers. No longer relevant.

Josh Gordon - Gordon caught five passes for 130 yards and a touchdown versus the Packers. Gordon had his best game as a Patriot versus Green Bay. He gets a difficult matchup in Adoree Jackson, but is starting to get in a groove with Brady and the rest of the offense. WR2.

Cordarrelle Patterson - Patterson rushed for 61 yards and a touchdown on 11 carries versus the Packers. With Michel returning, he is no longer relevant. If Michel is out, he is a sneaky play.

Rob Gronkowski - Did not play versus the Packers. Seems iffy to play. It has been a frustrating season for Gronk. He hasn’t been as dominating as in the past. He would be a tight end #1 if he returns, but that is largely due to the lack of options at the position.

Tennessee Titans

Marcus Mariota - Mariota threw for 240 yards and two touchdowns and rushed 10 times for 32 yards and a score versus the Cowboys. Mariota was efficient, but didn’t look great versus the Cowboys. He missed an open Corey Davis for a touchdown and made most of his plays in the short passing game. The Patriots have allowed the ninth most fantasy points per game to opposing QBs. QB2.

Dion Lewis - Lewis rushed 19 times for 62 yards and caught four passes for 60 yards and a touchdown versus the Cowboys. Lewis emerged from the bye as the lead dog. This may be the beginning of a trend, but most likely this turns back into a straight committee. Lewis is an RB2 this week versus New England.

Derrick Henry - Henry rushed for 27 yards and a touchdown on six carries. Henry struggled versus the Patriots front and he then ceded most of the work to Lewis. The Patriots have been better up the middle than stopping running backs through the air, so this is a week to bet on Lewis no matter what. RB4.  

Corey Davis - Davis caught six passes for 56 yards versus the Cowboys. There is no doubt about the talent, but Mariota struggles getting him the ball and he continues to face some of the best corners in the league. Stephon Gilmore is just another example of the huge hurdles that Davis has had to overcome. WR3.

Prediction: Patriots win 27-17.

New Orleans Saints vs. Cincinnati Bengals

Venue: Paul Brown Stadium(Cincinnati)Sun. 11-11 @ 1:00 pm ESTOver/Under: 54

   Weather

New Orleans Saints at Cincinnati Bengals (+4.5), Sunday, 1:00pm EST

Last Meeting (11/16/14): The Bengals won 27-10. Andy Dalton threw for 220 yards and three touchdowns. Jeremy Hill rushed for 152 yards on 27 carries. A.J. Green caught six passes for 127 yards and a touchdown. Drew Brees threw for 255 yards and a touchdown. Mark Ingram rushed for 67 yards on 23 carries. Marques Colston caught four passes for 56 yards.

New Orleans Saints

Drew Brees - Brees threw for 346 yards and four touchdowns versus the Rams. Brees was fantastic versus a tough Rams defense in a huge game for the Saints. He gets a rested Bengals defense, but they have allowed the fourth most fantasy points per game to opposing QBs. QB1.

Mark Ingram - Ingram rushed for 33 yards on nine carries versus the Rams. In a game where almost everyone on the Saints had a good day, Ingram was very disappointing. The veteran back struggled versus Aaron Donald and a tough Rams interior line. He gets a Bengals defense allowing the ninth most fantasy points per game to opposing back, but is more of an RB2 until we see some of that upside from last season.

Alvin Kamara - Kamara rushed for 82 yards and two touchdowns on 19 carries and caught four passes for 34 yards and a touchdown versus the Rams. Kamara absolutely went off versus Los Angeles. He is a matchup nightmare and should continue to get a ton of work in both the passing and running game. RB1.

Michael Thomas - Thomas caught 12 passe for 211 yards and a touchdown versus the Rams. Thomas was as dominant on the field as he was with his throwback touchdown celebrations off of it. He is an easy WR1 every week.

Cameron Meredith - Did not receive a target versus the Rams. He should be dropped in most formats.

Tre’Quan Smith- Smith caught two passes for 23 yards and a touchdown versus the Rams. This was a disappointing contest for Smith, who only received three targets in a shootout. He gets a decent matchup versus a team that has struggled defensively. WR3.

Benjamin Watson - Watson caught three passes for 62 yards and a touchdown versus the Rams. Watson had a big game versus the Rams, but it is only his third game this year with more than 8.5 fantasy points. The Bengals have allowed the third most fantasy points per game to opposing tight ends, but he is nothing more than a hit or miss TE2.

Cincinnati Bengals

Andy Dalton - Dalton has had a lot of time to prepare for this one, but will be missing his best weapon in A.J. Green . This could be an ugly one for the Red Rocket, but the Saints have allowed the second most fantasy points per game to opposing QBs. QB1.

Joe Mixon - Mixon should get a ton of work in this one considering the Bengals will want and try and keep Drew Brees and the Saints offense off the field. It is a tough matchup as the Saints allow the fifth fewest fantasy points per game to opposing running backs. RB2.

Giovani Bernard - Bernard should pick up some of the slack for the injured Green, but it is hard to tell how much. He is coming off of an injury and Mixon has been a workhorse back when healthy. RB3.

A.J. Green - Out

Tyler Boyd - With Green out, Boyd should be highly targeted in this one and has a fantastic matchup versus P.J. Williams out of the slot. WR2.

John Ross - Ross should return this week and will get plenty of action with Green out. That being said, you can’t count on him considering how inconsistent he has been. WR3.

C.J. Uzomah - Uzomah is a bit banged up, but should be good to go following the bye week. He is a lottery ticket in DFS, but he only has one game this year with double digit fantasy points so don’t bet on him. TE2.

Prediction: The Saints win 36-22.

Arizona Cardinals vs. Kansas City Chiefs

Venue: Arrowhead Stadium(Kansas City)Sun. 11-11 @ 1:00 pm ESTOver/Under: 49.5

   Weather

Arizona Cardinals at Kansas City Chiefs (-16.5), Sunday, 1:00pm EST.

Last Meeting (12/7/14): The Cardinals won 17-14. Alex Smith threw for 293 yards, one touchdown, and an interception. Jamaal Charles rushed for 91 yards and a touchdown on 10 carries. Travis Kelce caught seven passes for 110 yards. Drew Stanton threw for 239 yards and a touchdown. Kerwynn Williams rushed for 100 yards on 19 carries. Michael Floyd caught four passes for 85 yards.

Arizona Cardinals

Josh Rosen - Rosen has the physical ability to be a good quarterback in the NFL, but he is raw and the offense can be a bit conservative. He did well in the game before the bye, but he has yet to get a 20 point fantasy game and half of his games have been less than eight point performances. This is a fantastic matchup versus the Chiefs who have allowed the fifth most fantasy points per game to opposing QBs, but he is a risky QB2 at best, better saved for a GPP lottery ticket.

David Johnson - Johnson has been revived in this offense over the last couple of weeks. We haven’t had a monster game, but he now has double digit points in each game since week 2. He gets a Chiefs defense allows the most points per game to opposing RBs. RB1.

Larry Fitzgerald - Prior to the bye week, Fitzgerald had two straight double digit scoring weeks which is the first times he crossed that plateau since Week 1. The Chief give up a ton of points through the air and the Cardinals will have to throw to keep up, but Rosen and the offense holds him back. WR3.

Christian Kirk - Kirk is in the same boat as Fitz, struggling along with Rosen and the offensive growing pains. He has a ton of upside, but there is an extremely low floor. WR3.

Kansas City

Patrick Mahomes - Mahomes threw for 375 yards, three touchdowns, and an interception versus the Browns.  Mahomes has been the best quarterback in fantasy this season and there is no reason to think he can be stopped even with Arizona playing fairly well against the pass. QB1.

Kareem Hunt - Hunt rushed for 91 yards on two touchdowns on 17 carries and caught a 50 yards touchdown versus the Browns. Hunt has know put up at least 15 fantasy points in each game since Week 2 and four games of over 26 fantasy points. He gets a Cardinals defense allowing the second most fantasy points per game to opposing running backs. RB1.

Tyreek Hill - Hill caught four passes for 69 yards versus the Browns. Hill got his production in bunches, but that was largely due to being up by some many points. With Watkins ailing a bit, Hill should see plenty of targets on Sunday. He has scored double digit fantasy points in all but one game this year and has four games of 20 points or more. WR1.

Sammy Watkins - Watkins caught five passes for 62 yards versus the Browns. Watkins injured his foot versus Cleveland and while the injury does not appear to be serious, there is a chance he sits out this week according to Ian Rapoport of NFL.com. If he is out, then Chris Conley becomes an interesting flyer in deeper formats.

Travis Kelce - Kelce caught seven passes for 99 yards and two touchdowns versus the Browns. Kelce was the #1 tight end again in Week 9 and has been all season. That should continue this week versus Arizona. TE1.

Prediction: Chiefs win 33-10.

Washington Redskins vs. Tampa Bay Buccaneers

Venue: Raymond James Stadium(Tampa)Sun. 11-11 @ 1:00 pm ESTOver/Under: 51

   Weather

Washington Redskins at Tampa Bay Buccaneers (-3), Sunday, 1:00pm EST.

Last Meeting (10/25/15): The Redskins won 31-30. Jameis Winston threw for 297 yards and two touchdowns. Doug Martin rushed for 136 yards on 19 carries. Mike Evans caught eight passes for 164 yards and a touchdown. Kirk Cousins threw for 317 yards and three touchdowns. Matt Jones rushed for 29 yards on nine carries. Jordan Reed caught 11 passes for 72 yards and two touchdowns.

Washington Redskins

Alex Smith - Smith threw for 306 yards, one touchdown, and an interception versus the Falcons. Smith finally was forced to throw the ball a bit in the game versus Atlanta and the results were not good. Now, the Redskins offense have lost three offensive linemen and a wide receiver to injury, so he may be on the run a bit more. He gets a chance to get right though versus the Bucs who have allowed the most points per game to opposing QBs. QB2.

Adrian Peterson - Peterson rushed for 17 yards on nine carries versus the Falcons. The Falcons completely stuffed the Washington run game and the losses of both starting guards as well as future Hall of Famer Trent Williams being out will really hurt. They Bucs have allowed the seventh most fantasy points per game to opposing running backs and with Thompson likely out again, he should get a ton of work. RB2.

Chris Thompson - Did not play versus the Falcons. Likely out.

Kapri Bibbs - Bibbs rushed for 20 yards and a touchdown on three carries versus the Falcons. Bibbs will continue to play on passing downs and could be interesting in deeper PPR formats, but he is mostly just a fill-in for Thompson. RB3.

Jamison Crowder - Did not play versus the Falcons. Likely out.

Josh Doctson - Doctson caught three passes for 31 yards and a touchdown versus the Falcons. Doctson got into the endzone for the first time this year, but he is held back by this Washington (lack of) offense. With Crowder out and Richardson done, he remains one of the few options in the passing game and this is a great matchup. WR3.

Paul Richardson - IR

Maurice Harris - Harris caught 10 passes for 124 yards versus the Falcons. Harris came out of nowhere to post a great game in catch up mode for the Skins. It is hard to believe that this can continue especially once Crowder returns, but he is worth a flyer in this great matchup. WR3.

Jordan Reed - Reed caught four passes for 34 yards versus the Falcons. Reed is dealing with injuries (shocking,) but this is a great matchup for him if he can play. The Bucs allow the most points per game to opposing tight ends and with so many injuries, Reed may actually get a bunch of targets. Reed is a risky TE1.

Tampa Bay Buccaneers

Ryan Fitzpatrick - Fitzpatrick threw for 243 yards, four touchdowns, and two interceptions versus the Panthers. This is what you get from a guy like Fitzpatrick. He is going to make play; some good and some bad. It just depends on how many of each you get. The Redskins were just torched by the Falcons and are allowing the 10th most fantasy points to opposing quarterbacks, so fire him up. QB1.

Peyton Barber - Barber rushed for 31 yards on 11 carries versus the Panthers. Barber really struggled to find running room versus Carolina and then game script forced them to abandon the run. Game script shouldn’t do that this week, but the redskins have been pretty good against the run having only allowed the fifth fewest yards to opposing backs this year. RB2.

Ronald Jones - Out

Mike Evans - Evans caught one pass for 16 yards versus the Panthers. Evans was targeted 10 times in the games, so while this was embarrassingly bad for him, the underlying numbers are encouraging. He gets a Redskins secondary that has played well this season, but was just dismantled last week. WR1.

DeSean Jackson - Jackson caught two passes for 32 yards versus the Panthers. After not being traded at the deadline, Jackson only played on 48% of the snaps against the Panthers, fourth amongst the receivers in Tampa. This may be the beginning of a youth movement so it is time to bench DeSean in spite of the revenge game narrative. WR5.

Chris Godwin - Godwin caught two passes for 40 yards versus the Panthers. Weirdly, like Jackson, Godwin wasn’t on the field a ton (55%.) If he and Jackson are sharing time, then neither will be worth much. WR4.

Adam Humphries - Humphries caught eight passes for 82 yards and two touchdowns versus the Panthers. Humphries was on the field for 82% of the offensive snaps and had a huge day with Fitzmagic under center. While he is overlooked, he has had three double digit fantasy points in the last four game and is trending in the right direction. He gets Fabien Moreau, Washington's worst corner, in the matchup out of the slot. WR3.

O.J. Howard -  Howard caught four passes for 53 yards and two touchdowns versus the Panthers. Howard continues to be a stud in the passing game and no matter who has been playing QB, he is raking in the fantasy points. TE1.

Prediction: The Bucs win 24-17.

Detroit Lions vs. Chicago Bears

Venue: Soldier Field(Chicago)Sun. 11-11 @ 1:00 pm ESTOver/Under: 44

   Weather

Detroit Lions at Chicago Bears (-6.5), Sunday, 1:00 pm EST.

Last Meeting (12/16/17):The Lions won 20-10. Mitch Trubisky threw for 314 yards, one touchdown, and three interceptions. Jordan Howard rushed for 37 yards on 10 carries. Kendall Wright caught seven passes for 81 yards. Matthew Stafford threw for 237 yards and two touchdowns. Theo Riddick rushed for 49 yards on eight carries. Marvin Jones caught three passes for 85 yards.

Detroit Lions

Matthew Stafford - Stafford threw for 199 yards versus the Vikings. Stafford spent much of the afternoon on his back being constantly hit and sacked by a fierce Vikings defense. He won’t get much of a reprieve versus Chicago who are allowing the ninth fewest points per game to opposing quarterbacks and are tied for sixth in the league in sacks. QB2.

Kerryon Johnson -  Johnson rushed for 37 yards on 12 carries versus the Vikings. Johnson struggled to find running room versus the stout Vikings defensive front. He gets another tough test this week in Chicago as the Bears have allowed the third fewest fantasy points per game to opposing running backs. RB2.

Theo Riddick - Riddick caught seven passes for 36 yards versus the Vikings. Riddick has finally returned to full health and was very productive in the passing game, picking up a lot of the targets that used to go to Golden Tate . While he doesn’t have a ton of value week-to-week, he is an interesting PPR fyler and an RB3 in the format this week.

Marvin Jones - Jones caught six passes for 66 yards versus the Vikings. Jones has now put up back to back games with at least 12 fantasy points and with Tate traded, he should become a bigger part of the offense. He will see a lot of Kyle Fuller this week, who has been one of the elite corners in the NFL. WR3.

Kenny Golladay - Golladay caught three passes for 46 yards versus the Vikings. Golladay didn’t see an uptick in targets in the wake of Tate being dealt, but that is likely more about Matthew Stafford being sacked 10 times and having no time to throw. His matchup isn’t as tough as Jones, but this Bears defense will likely bring the heat on Stafford again. WR3.

Chicago Bears

Mitchell Trubisky - Trubisky threw for 135 yards, one touchdown, and an interception versus the Bills. There wasn’t much need for Trubisky to throw at Buffalo, but when he did, it didn’t look good. The Bears will look to pound this one out on the ground versus a porous Lions run defense. QB3.

Jordan Howard - Howard rushed for 47 yards and two touchdowns on 14 carries versus the Bills. Howard is the main ball carries and in spite of not being overly impressive, he got the red zone work, which made him a great fantasy play. He gets a great matchup versus Detroit who are allowing the sixth most fantasy points per game to opposing running backs. RB1.

Tarik Cohen - Cohen rushed for five yards on six carries and caught a pass for eight yards versus the Bills.  Cohen didn’t get a lot of looks in a blowout in Buffalo. This one likely won’t be the same way and Cohen returns to being an RB2.

Allen Robinson - Did not play versus the Bills. Robinson has now missed two consecutive games for the Bears and would be facing a really tough matchup versus Darius Slay even if he does return. Add those facts in with the fact that Trubisky is not a very good passer and Robinson is a WR4 this week.

Anthony Miller - Miller caught five passes for 49 yards versus the Bills. Miller has done well in relief of Robinson and has a ton of upside, but whether it is Robinson will be back or the ineffectiveness of Trubisky, fantasy owners can’t rely on Miller. WR4.

Trey Burton - Burton caught two passes for 28 yards and a touchdown versus the Bills. The Bears didn’t need to do much passing last week, but that should be taken up a bit versus Detroit. Burton has scored double digit fantasy points in four of the last five weeks, so he is a pretty safe TE1.

Prediction: The Bears win 20-17.

Atlanta Falcons vs. Cleveland Browns

Venue: FirstEnergy Stadium(Cleveland)Sun. 11-11 @ 1:00 pm ESTOver/Under: 50.5

   Weather

Atlanta Falcons at Cleveland Browns (+4), Sunday, 1:00 pm EST.

Last Meeting (11/23/14): The Browns won 26-24. Brian Hoyer threw for 322 yards and three interceptions. Isaiah Crowell rushed for 88 yards and two touchdowns on 12 carries. Josh Gordon caught eight passes for 120 yards. Matt Ryan threw for 273 yards, two touchdowns, and an interception. Steven Jackson rushed for 34 yards and a touchdown on 13 carries. Roddy White caught nine passes for 96 yards.

Atlanta Falcons

Matt Ryan - Ryan threw for 350 yards, four touchdowns, and an interception versus the Redskins. Ryan torched the Redskins defense completing passes to six different players and putting up a huge fantasy day. He gets a Browns secondary that has been hit or miss this year, but is better than the stats show. The Browns are awful versus the run, so that may be more of the focus. QB2.

Devonta Freeman - IR

Tevin Coleman - Coleman rushed for 88 yards on 13 carries and caught five passes for 68 yards and two touchdowns versus the Redskins. Coleman went off versus the Redskins, carving them up on the ground and through the air. He gets a Browns defense allowing the third most fantasy points per game to opposing backs. RB1.

Ito Smith - Smith rushed for 60 yards and a touchdown on 10 carries versus the Redskins. Smith was impressive versus Washington and should continue to get 40-50% of the carries out of the backfield. Cleveland is so bad versus the run that Smith is a flex option this week. RB3.

Julio Jones - Jones caught seven passes for 121 yards and a touchdown versus the Redskins. Jones scored his first touchdown since last year in garbage time. He has been fantastic without the scores, but if he starts getting in the end zone, than he will be the #1 wide receiver rest of the way.

Mohamed Sanu - Sanu caught four passes for 45 yards versus the Redskins. Sanu has become third fiddle in the passing game with the emergence of Ridley. The offense is potent enough to support him, but the ceiling is capped and the floor is now lower. WR4.

Calvin Ridley - Ridley caught six passes for 71 yards and a touchdown versus the Redskins. Ridley has been great this season and benefits from having Jones on the other side taking the defense’s attention. The Browns have a good secondary, so this won’t be an easy matchup, but he is at worst a WR3.

Austin Hooper - Hooper caught three passes for 41 yards versus the Redskins. Hooper has been hit or miss this year, but the Browns do allow the ninth most fantasy points per game to opposing tight ends. Low-end TE1.

Cleveland Browns

Baker Mayfield - Mayfield threw for 297 yards, two touchdowns, and an interception versus the Chiefs. Mayfield found a new favorite target in the offense with a organizational change to the offense. He had a pretty good day himself, but a lot of the passes were shorter, high percentage plays versus a bad Kansas City defense. He gets another bad defense and a good offense in the Falcons, so this could be a decent day for the rookie. QB2.

Duke Johnson Jr.- Johnson caught nine passes for 78 yards and two touchdown versus the Chiefs. Johnson finally got into the game plan for the Browns. While it is too early to start doing jumping jacks, Johnson should be grabbed in all formats and started as an RB2 this week versus a defense allowing the fourth most fantasy points per game to opposing running backs.

Nick Chubb - Chubb rushed for 85 yards and a touchdown on 22 carries versus the Chiefs. Chubb looked great and while Johnson cut into his target shares in the passing game, Chubb was clearly the lead back. The Falcons have been awful against the run this season, so expect another big workload day for Chubb. RB1.

Jarvis Landry - Landry caught six passes for 50 yards versus the Chiefs. Landry was the most targeted receiver on the team (if you don’t count Duke Johnson .) He should get plenty of opportunities to make some plays versus a banged up Falcons secondary. WR2.

Antonio Callaway - Callaway caught three passes for 51 yards versus the Chiefs. With Higgins returning, the wide receiver position is a bit scrambled for the guys behind Landry. WR5.

David Njoku - Njoku caught four passes for 53 yards versus the Chiefs. A week after getting no work, Njoku turned to be a bigger part of the passing game. That should continue in what will likely be a high scoring game. TE1.

Prediction: The Falcons win 36-24.

Jacksonville Jaguars vs. Indianapolis Colts

Venue: Lucas Oil Stadium(Indianapolis)Sun. 11-11 @ 1:00 pm ESTOver/Under: 46.5

   Weather

Jacksonville Jaguars at Indianapolis Colts (-2.5), Sunday, 1:00pm EST.

Last Meeting (12/3/17): The Jaguars won 30-10. Jacoby Brissett threw for 174 yards, one touchdown, and two interceptions. Frank Gore rushed for 61 yards on 13 carries. T.Y. Hilton caught three passes for 51 yards and a touchdown. Blake Bortles threw for 309 yards and two touchdowns. Leonard Fournette rushed for 57 yards and a touchdown on 20 carries. Marqise Lee caught seven passes for 86 yards and a touchdown.

Jacksonville Jaguars

Blake Bortles - Bortles has been on thin ice as the starter in Jacksonville prior to the bye because of poor play. He has been dealing with an injury as well, but that appears to be less of an issue. He is unstartable outside of 2QB leagues. QB3.

Leonard Fournette - Fournette appears to be close to returning, but with the recent addition of Carlos Hyde and the the return to health for T.J. Yeldon , this has now become a muddled situation. Fournette is clearly the best back when 100%, but we haven’t really seen that. If Fournette plays, he is a risky RB1.

Carlos Hyde - Hyde struggled in his first game as a Jaguar and the imminent return  of Fournette lowers his stock quite a bit. If Fournette is active, Hyde is an RB4.

T.J. Yeldon - Yeldon now has to deal with both Fournette and Hyde. It is unclear whether or not he has any value yet. RB5.

Dede Westbrook - Westbrook has been hit or miss this year largely because of Bortles’ struggles with accuracy. He continues to get targets most weeks because he runs most of his routes out of the slot. That being said, you can’t start any Jacksonville receiver. WR4.

Donte Moncrief - Moncrief has been the most productive receiver in the Jacksonville offense, but that has been inconsistent at best. Moncrief is not the player he used to be, but Bortles seems to favor him over Keelan Cole . WR4.

Indianapolis Colts  

Andrew Luck - Luck was fantastic this the last game prior to the bye week, but that was at Oakland versus a Raiders team that is in full tank mode. He has a much tougher test this week in the Jacksonville secondary that is allowing the fourth fewest fantasy points per game to opposing QBs. However, Luck has not scored less than 11 fantasy points in any game this season and he has scored at least 22 points in his last five games. QB1.

Marlon Mack - Mack has dealt with injuries all season long, but he was fantastic prior to the bye and has now had extended time to rest. He gets a tough test in Jacksonville who has allowed the ninth fewest fantasy points per game to opposing RBs. RB2.

Nyheim Hines - Just a handcuff with Mack back.

T.Y. Hilton - Hilton struggled in the last game before the bye, but should be completely healthy now. However with a matchup against the Jalen Ramsey , this won’t be a bounceback week. WR3.

Ryan Grant - Grant gets A.J. Bouye this week off of the bye, which won’t be a fun matchup. Grant wouldn’t be startable against a bad corner anyhow. WR5.

Chester Rogers - Rogers probably gets the best matchup of the wide receivers, but considering he was outpaced in Week 8 by Dontrelle Inman , he isn’t a safe bet either. WR5.

Jack Doyle - Doyle returned from the bye and went right back into being Luck’s favorite target. He definitely hurts Eric Ebron ’s value, but he is a stable TE1.

Eric Ebron - Ebron definitely drops in the ranks with the return of Doyle, but the lack of options in the position keeps him as a top end TE2.

Prediction:  The Colts win 19-13.

Los Angeles Chargers vs. Oakland Raiders

Venue: O.co Coliseum(Oakland)Sun. 11-11 @ 4:05 pm ESTOver/Under: 49.5

   Weather

Los Angeles Chargers at Oakland Raiders (+10), Sunday, 4:05 pm EST.

Last meeting (10/7/18, Week 5): The Chargers won 26-10. Derek Carr threw for 268 yards, one touchdown, and an interception. Marshawn Lynch rushed for 31 yards on nine carries. Martavis Bryant caught three passes for 91 yards. Philip Rivers threw for 339 yards and two touchdowns. Melvin Gordon rushed for 58 yards and a touchdown on 19 carries. Keenan Allen caught eight passes for 90 yards.

Los Angeles Chargers

Philip Rivers - Rivers threw for 228 yards and two touchdowns versus the Seahawks.

Melvin Gordon - Gordon rushed for 113 yards and a touchdown on 16 carries versus the Seahawks. Gordon has been a stud all season and it would be hard to believe that he doesn’t absolutely destroy the Raiders defense that is allowing the fourth most fantasy points to opposing RBs. RB1.

Austin Ekeler - Just a handcuff.

Keenan Allen - Allen caught six passes for 124 yards versus the Seahawks. Allen hasn’t scored a touchdown since Week 1, but he has put up good numbers in spite of it. He has at least 13 fantasy points in each of his last games and gets a Raiders defense that has given up. WR1.

Tyrell Williams -Williams caught two passes for 23 yards and a touchdown versus the Seahawks. Williams has been the better of the Williams’ssss and gets a nice matchup this week versus the Raiders worst corner in Daryl Worley . Should be a nice day. WR2.

Mike Williams - Williams caught one pass for 30 yards versus the Seahawks. You don’t want to be like this Mike. Williams has struggled for a while now and is just a big play receiver in this offense. The Raiders do give up a lot of big plays, but he is nothing more than a lottery ticket right now. WR4.

Oakland Raiders

Derek Carr - Carr threw for 171 yards and a touchdown versus the 49ers. If you can’t manage 200 yards passing in a blowout versus the Niners defense than there is no hope. Carr has been awful for an awful team and there is no telling if and when he will show up. Without a running game, a passing game, and a coaching staff to help him, Carr should be ignored outside of 2QB leagues. QB3.

Doug Martin - Martin rushed for 49 yards on 11 carries versus the 49ers. Martin actually looked ok until the Raiders gave up on the running game. He is the lead back, but the offense just isn't working. RB3.

Jalen Richard - Richard caught four passes for 45 yards versus the 49ers. In spite of not really being involved in the running game, Richard is the most valuable piece fantasy-wise on this offense. He is able to make plays in the passing game, but the offense is just not good enough for him to be anything more than a deep league PPR RB3.

Jordy Nelson - Nelson caught two passes for 16 yards versus the 49ers. In a game where the Raiders trailed from jump street, Nelson only received three targets. That was the most of any Raiders wide receiver, but it is the reason why you can’t start him or any Raiders wide out. WR4.

Jared Cook - Cook caught two passes for 20 yards versus the 49ers. Cook had three targets as well, but the Raiders just couldn’t move the ball versus San Francisco. If the Raiders are going to win any more games (they may not want to) they will have to get their few playmakers involved and Cook is one of those few. He isn’t a TE1 right now, but he is near the top of the TE2 pile.

Prediction: The Chargers win 38-12.

Miami Dolphins vs. Green Bay Packers

Venue: Lambeau Field(Green Bay)Sun. 11-11 @ 4:25 pm ESTOver/Under: 47.5

   Weather

Miami Dolphins Green Bay Packers (-9.5), Sunday, 4:25 pm EST.

Last Meeting (12/1/14): The Dolphins won 16-13. Ryan Tannehill threw for 235 yards and an interception. Lamar Miller rushed for 56 yards and a touchdown on 13 carries. Mike Wallace caught six passes for 69 yards. Geno Smith threw for 65 yards and an interception. Chris Johnson rushed for 105 yards on 17 carries. Zach Sudfeld caught one pass for 20 yards.

Miami Dolphins

Ryan Tannehill - Out

Brock Osweiler - Osweiler threw for 139 yards versus the Jets.  The conditions were really bad, so the offense was super conservative, that being said, Brock Osweiler is awful and the Dolphins know it. He gets a Packers team that will likely try and get him to throw the ball by stuffing the run. QB3.

Kenyan Drake - Drake rushed for nine yards on three carries and caught four passes for 26 yards versus the Jets. A week after Drake went off, he was right back to being second fiddle. He didn’t even have a touch after the first half. This is a frustrating situation for fantasy owners, but there is a chance if Miami falls behind that Drake gets more involved. That being said, he is nothing more than a desperation play. RB4.

Frank Gore - Gore rushed for 52 yards on 20 carries versus the Jets. Gore is clearly the lead back in Miami, but he has limited upside and when the Dolphins fall behind in this one, it will be bad for his value. RB3.

DeVante Parker - Parker caught one pass for eight yards versus the Jets. A week after going off versus the Texans in primetime, Parker was unproductive in spite of being on the field more than any other Miami wide out. This was in part due to the conditions and the game plan. Parker has a great matchup with Breshad Breeland who has been really bad this year, but is risky with the offense playing so poorly behind Osweiler. WR3.

Kenny Stills - Stills caught one pass for 19 yards versus the Jets. Stills was on the field the least out of the top four Dolphins receivers. He was coming back from injury so this may just be precautionary, but it is something to watch this week. WR5.

Danny Amendola - Amendola caught five passes for 47 yards versus the Jets. It is not spectacular, but Amendola is the only steady receiver in this offense since Albert Wilson went down. He should continue to be even against a tough matchup with Jaire Alexander . Low Ceiling, but a safer floor. WR4.

Green Bay Packers

Aaron Rodgers - Rodgers threw for 259 yards and two touchdowns versus the Patriots. Rodgers struggled versus the Patriots and it showed as he put up his worst game of the year. However, he gets a nice bounceback game versus Miami this week at home. QB1.

Aaron Jones - Jones rushed for 76 yards on 14 carries versus the Patriots. Jones appears to finally be the lead back in Green Bay and it couldn’t come at a better time than this week. Miami allows the most fantasy yards to opposing running backs, so Jones should be primed to go off. RB1.

Jamaal Williams - Williams rushed for 34 yards on seven carries versus the Patriots.  Now just an annoyance and a handcuff. RB4.

Davante Adams - Adams caught six passes for 40 yards and a touchdown versus the Patriots. Adams continues to be a monster in fantasy. He has scored in all but two games this year and has scored at least 16 points in each game this season. WR1.

Randall Cobb - Cobb caught five passes for 24 yards versus the Patriots. Cobb was held in check in spite of getting five catches on six targets. He still gets looks, but he has not been as explosive. It is a decent matchup this week versus Bobby McCain , but not one I would risk in most formats. WR4.

Geronimo Allison - On IR

Marquez Valdes-Scantling - MVS has taken over for Allison now that his season is done. He caught three pases for 101 yards versus the PAtriots. Scantling is a great athlete and while he is raw, Rodgers seems to like his big play ability. He has a tough matchup this week, but is worth the gamble as a WR3.

Jimmy Graham - Graham caught four passes for 55 yards and a touchdown versus the Patriots. Graham was more involved in the offense at New England which is something different for the former top tight end. He can be hit or miss, but is still a TE1.

Prediction: The Packers win 31-18.

Seattle Seahawks vs. Los Angeles Rams

Venue: Los Angeles Memorial Coliseum(Los Angeles)Sun. 11-11 @ 4:25 pm ESTOver/Under: 50.5

   Weather

Seattle Seahawks at Los Angeles Rams (-10), Sunday, 4:25 pm EST.

Last Meeting (10/7/18, Week 5): The Rams won 33-31. Jared Goff threw for 321 yards, one touchdown, and two interceptions. Todd Gurley rushed for 77 yards and three touchdowns on 22 carries. Rashaad Woods caught five passes for 92 yards. Russell Wilson threw for 198 yards and three touchdowns. Chris Carson rushed for 116 yards on 19 carries. Tyler Lockett caught three passes for 98 yards and a touchdown.

Seattle Seahawks

Russell Wilson - Wilson threw for 235 yards, two touchdowns, and an interception versus the Chargers. Wilson struggled as his line failed him throughout the contest. This is a common theme for the Seahawks and that isn't likely to change this week versus the Rams. However, he should still put up good fantasy numbers as the Rams are missing some pieces and he will have to throw to keep up. QB1.

Chris Carson - Carson rushed for 40 yards on eight carries versus the Chargers. Carson was forced out of the game and appears unlikely to play.

- Davis rushed for 62 yards on 15 carries versus the Chargers.Davis took over for Carson and played very will against the Chargers. He should get plenty of looks this week in LA versus the Rams, but don’t expect a huge game as it appears Rashaad Penny may be involved after he rushed for 11 yards on four carries and caught three passes for 13 yards versus the Chargers. RB3.

Doug Baldwin - Baldwin caught four passes for 77 yards versus the Chargers. Baldwin rebounded nicely versus the Chargers. He only received four targets, but this is a good sign he is back on his way to being fantasy relevant again. He is a risky play until we see more proof, but he is flex worthy in deeper formats. WR4.

Tyler Lockett - Lockett caught three passes for 22 yards versus the Chargers. Lockett had his first true dud of the season versus the Chargers. It was the first time this season he was held under double digit fantasy points. However, his best game of the year was in the first matchup versus the Rams, so he should have a chance to break out again against Marcus Peters . WR3.

David Moore - Moore caught two passes for 16 yards versus the Chargers. Moore did not score a touchdown for the first time in four weeks, but he did receive seven targets which was almost as much as Baldwin and Lockett combined. He should rebound in this game versus the Rams. WR4.

Nick Vannett - Vannett caught six passes for 52 yards and a touchdown versus the Chargers. Vannett replaced Ed Dickson ’s breakout out of nowhere last week. He should revert back to irrelevance this week.

Los Angeles Rams

Jared Goff - Goff threw for 391 yards, three touchdowns, and an interception versus the Saints. Goff was great in the shootout with the Saints in spite of his team getting the worse end of the outcome. After a small rough patch, he has put up back-to-back great games and will look to avenge his mediocre performance in Week 5. The Seahawks have been very good against the pass this year, allowing the fewest fantasy points per game to opposing offense, but the weapons Goff has and the high octane offense he runs keeps him as a QB1.

Todd Gurley - Gurley rushed for 68 yards and a touchdown on 13 carries versus the Saints. It wasn’t Gurley’s bestday, but he still managed to put up good numbers in New Orleans. He should rebound nicely versus a Seattle defense he crushed last time out. RB1.

Brandin Cooks - Cooks caught six passes for 114 yards and a touchdown versus the Saints. Cooks had his best game since Week 4 versus the Saints, leading the team in catches and yards. He did not play in the first game versus Seattle, but should be fine. WR2.

Robert Woods - Woods caught five passes for 71 yards versus the Saints. Woods led the Rams in targets, but had a couple of costly drops that hurt his team and his production. His matchup this week versus Shaquill Griffin is a juicy one, so he is a WR1.

Cooper Kupp - Kupp caught five passes for 89 yards and a touchdown versus the Saints. Kupp returned with a bang, making an immediate impact versus the Saints. Kupp is the perfect compliment to the outside receivers and has a decent matchup versus Justin Coleman. WR2.

Prediction: Rams win 29-20.

Dallas Cowboys vs. Philadelphia Eagles

Venue: Lincoln Financial Field(Philadelphia)Sun. 11-11 @ 8:20 pm ESTOver/Under: 43.5

   Weather

Dallas Cowboys at Philadelphia Eagles (-6.5), Sunday, 8:20 pm EST.

Last Meeting (12/31/17): Dak Prescott threw for 179 yards and a touchdown. Ezekiel Elliott rushed for 103 yards on 27 carries. Brice Butler caught two passes for 50 yards and a touchdown. Nate Sudfeld threw for 134 yards. LeGarrette Blount rushed for 37 yards on nine carries. Mack Hollins caught three passes for 25 yards.

Dallas Cowboys

Dak Prescott - Prescott threw for 243 yards, two touchdowns, and an interception versus the Titans. Prescott was very uneven in the game versus Tennessee. He had moments that reminded us of why he was the Rookie of the Year and then moments that were not so stellar. The addition of Cooper obviously helps, but the offense is still conservative and Prescott makes too many mistake. The Eagles have a great defense and are coming off of a bye so this may be an ugly one. QB3.

Ezekiel Elliott - Elliott rushed for 61 yards on 17 carries and caught four passes for 51 yards versus the Titans. Elliott struggled much of the game in the rushing attack, but the added dimension of being able to make plays in the passing game has helped his value tremendously. He gets a tough matchup this week versus an Eagles defense allowing the fewest fantasy points per game to opposing RBs, but is still an RB1.

Amari Cooper - Cooper caught five passes for 58 yards and a touchdown versus the Titans. Cooper had a great debut for the Cowboys and is clearly already the top receiving option for them. The Cowboys will need to throw in this one to compete, but Cooper can disappear at times and it is too early to tell if he can change that narrative. Boom or bust WR2.  

Cole Beasley -  Beasley caught three passes for 16 yards versus the Titans. With Cooper in town, Beasley and the rest of the wide receivers lose a ton of value. However, it wasn’t like they had much to begin with. WR4.

Philadelphia Eagles

Carson Wentz - Wentz has had two weeks to rest and prepare for this primetime matchup. The Cowboys were just torched by a mediocre Marcus Mariota , so Wentz should still be a good play this week. QB1.

Corey Clement - Clement seems to have been leapfrogged in this offense. RB5.

Wendell Smallwood - Smallwood split carries with Josh Adams prior to the bye, but also got the majority of the passing down work. This combination makes him the back to own even with Darren Sproles returning. However, this backfield situation is a bit of a mess and should be avoided until we see more after this game. RB3.

Alshon Jeffery - Jeffrey has had time off to nurse his constant injury issues and should be good to go in this game. However, he gets a tough matchup with Byron Jones this week and that alone makes him a risky WR2.

Golden Tate - Tate gets his first taste of action with Philly, but it is hard to know how much he will be involved. He definitely takes a hit as a lot of his traditional targets in Detroit are ones that normally go to Zach Ertz . Tate is a high floor WR3, but the upside is unknown.

Nelson Agholor - With Tate in town, Agholor is likely not fantasy relevant week-to-week.

Zach Ertz - Ertz has been fantastic this season and will should have no problem versus this Dallas defense in spite of the fact the only allow the seventh fewest fantasy points per game to opposing tight ends. TE1.

Dallas Goedert - Tate likely kills a lot of Goedert’s value.

Prediction: Eagles win 27-16.

New York Giants vs. San Francisco 49ers

Venue: Levi's Stadium(Santa Clara)Mon. 11-12 @ 8:15 pm ESTOver/Under: 44.5

   Weather

New York Giants at San Francisco 49ers (-3), Monday, 8:15 pm EST.

Last Meeting (11/12/17): Eli Manning threw for 273 yards and two touchdowns. Orleans Darkwa rushed for 70 yards on 14 carries. Sterling Shepard caught 11 passes for 142 yards. C.J. Beathard threw for 288 yards, two touchdowns, and an interception. Carlos Hyde rushed for 89 yards on 17 carries. Marquise Goodwin caught one pass for 83 yards and a touchdown.

New York Giants

Eli Manning - Manning has been terrible this season, but continues to be fantasy relevant in deeper formats because of the talent around him. He gets a juicy matchup versus the Niners who allow the seventh most fantasy points per game to opposing quarterbacks. However, he is a risky play off of the bye because the Niners did bring pressure last week versus Oakland and the Giants line is atrocious. QB2.

Saquon Barkley - Barkley has been everything as advertised in spite of poor line play in front of him and a QB that hates offense. His ability to make plays in any situation is amazing to watch. Barkley is the closest thing we have seen to Barry Sanders in over a decade and is an every week RB1.

Odell Beckham Jr.- Beckham has had struggles this year with Eli under center, but he still continues to produce like an elite wide receiver almost every week. He has scored at least 21 points in three of his last four games and only has one game this year with less than 10 fantasy points. WR1.

Sterling Shepard - Shepard has been hit or miss this year, but has gotten consistent targets in the passing game. He has a fantastic match up though this week with Ahkello Witherspoon who will matchup with him one on one a bunch as the Niners focus on the other weapons. WR3.

Evan Engram - Engram was more involved in the offense, but if not for a touchdown, then he would have put up another dud in Week 8 prior to the bye week. Engram has put up two good weeks and three bad ones this season on top of missing three games due to injury. The injuries seem to be behind him now and there is a ton of upside for him, but he is a lower end TE1 because of the performance.

San Francisco 49ers

Nick Mullens - Mullens threw for 262 yards and three touchdowns versus the Raiders. Mullens Wally Pipped Beathard with a nice game versus the hapless Raiders. While the numbers were great for Mullens, it was all about the competition level. Mullens completed zero passes in tight coverage and he just picked apart a defense that has given up. The Giants have not been great defensively and sold piece of their secondary at the trade deadline, but Mullens is a risky bet to continue with his Week 9 performance. QB2.

Matt Breida - Breida rushed for 44 yards on 12 carries versus the Raiders. Breida should be the lead back once again this week after Mostert was placed on injured reserve during his great showing versus the Raiders. The Giants have allowed the 10th most fantasy points per game to opposing backs this year, so Breida is an RB2.

Raheem Mostert - IR

Marquise Goodwin - Goodwin caught one pass for 11 yards versus the Raiders. With Mullens at QB, the Niners did not take many shots deep due to the score. Mullens does not have a good deep ball so Goodwin needs to get underneath to make an impact, but those roles are largely filled by Garcon and Kittle. WR4.

Pierre Garcon - Garcon caught three passes for 56 yards and a touchdown versus the Raiders. Garcon is a great possession receiver that can find soft parts of a secondary which is perfect for what Mullens wants to do. However, last week was very fluky and is unlikely to repeat. WR4.

George Kittle - Kittle caught four passes for 108 yards and a touchdown versus the Raiders. Kittle continues to be the only part of the passing game in San Francisco that matters. He has thrived with every quarterback they have thrown out there and should continue to do so. TE1.

Prediction: The Giants win 27-16.
