Quarterbacks

    1. 1
    2. Michael

      Vick

      Eagles vs Chargers

      QB

    3. PASS YDS297

    4. PASS TD2

    5. INT1

    6. RUSH YDS43

    7. RUSH TD1

    Well Vick certainly looked like a nice fit in Chip Kelly's offense, huh? If he stays healthy, the sky's the limit.
    1. 2
    2. Aaron

      Rodgers

      Packers vs Redskins

      QB

    3. PASS YDS343

    4. PASS TD3

    5. INT0

    6. RUSH YDS11

    7. RUSH TD0

    It really doesn't matter how good the defense is, Rodgers more often than not does his thing. That will be the case again on Sunday.
    1. 3
    2. Drew

      Brees

      Saints at Buccaneers

      QB

    3. PASS YDS330

    4. PASS TD3

    5. INT0

    6. RUSH YDS0

    7. RUSH TD0

    No one throws for 10-plus YPA with the ease that Brees does. He picked up 357 yards on 35 attempts with touchdowns to Marques Colston and Jimmy Graham last week. He'll light up the Buccaneers on Sunday.

Running Backs

    1. 1
    2. Maurice

      Jones-Drew

      Jaguars at Raiders

      RB

    3. RUSH YDS101

    4. RUSH TD1

    5. REC YDS32

    6. REC TD1

    We've seen this script before. Jacksonville has terrible offense. MJD doesn't show up in a game or two early. MJD figures it out and has a great year. Don't worry about him.
    1. 2
    2. Arian

      Foster

      Texans vs Titans

      RB

    3. RUSH YDS84

    4. RUSH TD1

    5. REC YDS48

    6. REC TD1

    Ben Tate was a more efficient runner last week, but Foster still had 24 touches, including six catches on eight targets. He'll be the bellcow as long as he's healthy, but coach Gary Kubiak has said he wants a more equal distribution this week.
    1. 3
    2. Doug

      Martin

      Buccaneers vs Saints

      RB

    3. RUSH YDS121

    4. RUSH TD1

    5. REC YDS47

    6. REC TD0

    The Jets shut down Martin, allowing just 65 yards on 24 carries. I fully expect him to bounce back this week against a softer New Orleans defense that surrendered 77 yards to Steven Jackson on 11 carries, though most of that was on one run.

Wide Receivers

    1. 1
    2. Larry

      Fitzgerald

      Cardinals vs Lions

      WR

    3. REC YDS103

    4. REC TD2

    So that's what life is like with a real quarterback, huh. Fitz had eight catches for 80 yards and two touchdowns. He's back.
    1. 2
    2. Calvin

      Johnson

      Lions at Cardinals

      WR

    3. REC YDS130

    4. REC TD1

    It's not often that the Lions score 34 points and Johnson has just four catches for 30 yards. Something tells me he'll make up for that this week.
    1. 3
    2. Andre

      Johnson

      Texans vs Titans

      WR

    3. REC YDS119

    4. REC TD1

    Johnson was a monster on Monday, with 12 receptions for 146 yards. He had 16 targets, something his owners can get used to for the rest of the season.

Tight Ends

    1. 1
    2. Jimmy

      Graham

      Saints at Buccaneers

      TE

    3. REC YDS104

    4. REC TD2

    Graham caught just four passes for 45 yards, but he saved his day with a touchdown. It'll be a more Graham-like performance this week.
    1. 2
    2. Jared

      Cook

      Rams at Falcons

      TE

    3. REC YDS107

    4. REC TD1

    All of Cook's tools were on display against the Cardinals. He's a top-five tight end in the making.
    1. 3
    2. Greg

      Olsen

      Panthers at Bills

      TE

    3. REC YDS78

    4. REC TD1

    Olsen led the Panthers with 10 targets and caught five passes for 56 yards. He'll find the end zone for the first time this season on Sunday.

Kickers

    1. 1
    2. Mason

      Crosby

      Packers vs Redskins

      K

    3. PAT4

    4. FG3

    With the Packers running up the score to nearly 40, it'll be a great day to own Crosby.
    1. 2
    2. Justin

      Tucker

      Ravens vs Browns

      K

    3. PAT1

    4. FG4

    A strong Cleveland defense will mean good news for Tucker owners. Look for him to convert all four of his field goal attempts.
    1. 3
    2. Matt

      Bryant

      Falcons vs Rams

      K

    3. PAT3

    4. FG3

    I expect the Falcons offense to get back on track this week, and that'll mean a big day for Bryant.

Defenses

    1. 1
    2. Bears

      vs Vikings

      Bears vs Vikings

      DEFENSE

    3. PTS ALLOWED13

    4. SACKS2

    5. INT2

    6. TD1

    The takeaway machine in Chicago kept right on churning, with the Bears registering three takeaways against the Bengals. The song will remain the same this week.
    1. 2
    2. Packers

      vs Redskins

      Packers vs Redskins

      DEFENSE

    3. PTS ALLOWED20

    4. SACKS1

    5. INT2

    6. TD1

    Colin Kaepernick had his way with the Packers again last week, but they'll be able to bounce back against a Washington team trying to find itself.
    1. 3
    2. Texans

      vs Titans

      Texans vs Titans

      DEFENSE

    3. PTS ALLOWED13

    4. SACKS4

    5. INT3

    6. TD0

    Houston saved the day for its fantasy owners with the Brian Cushing pick-six in the second half. The Texans won't allow 28 points every week, especially not on Sunday.
