Quarterbacks

    1. 1
    2. Peyton

      Manning

      Broncos at Colts

      QB

    3. PASS YDS384

    4. PASS TD4

    5. INT0

    6. RUSH YDS0

    7. RUSH TD0

    If anyone could treat a game against the team for which he played for 13 years as just another game, it's Manning. Something tells me he might have a little something extra, though.
    1. 2
    2. Tony

      Romo

      Cowboys at Eagles

      QB

    3. PASS YDS342

    4. PASS TD4

    5. INT1

    6. RUSH YDS0

    7. RUSH TD0

    Going up against the hapless Redskins, Romo severely disappointed his fantasy owners last week. He'll make up for it against the Eagles.
    1. 3
    2. Jay

      Cutler

      Bears at Redskins

      QB

    3. PASS YDS339

    4. PASS TD3

    5. INT1

    6. RUSH YDS15

    7. RUSH TD0

    Cutler missed some throws against the Giants, but his owners are happy. This matchup is too good to pass up, too.

Running Backs

    1. 1
    2. Jamaal

      Charles

      Chiefs vs Texans

      RB

    3. RUSH YDS106

    4. RUSH TD2

    5. REC YDS57

    6. REC TD0

    I'm running out of things to say about Charles, and it's just Week 7. Houston is allowing 4.2 yards per carry this year, making Charles a solid bet to top 100 yards.
    1. 2
    2. Adrian

      Peterson

      Vikings at Giants

      RB

    3. RUSH YDS136

    4. RUSH TD2

    5. REC YDS25

    6. REC TD0

    The Giants allow 19.1 fantasy points per game to running backs. Peterson will increase that average on Monday night.
    1. 3
    2. LeSean

      McCoy

      Eagles vs Cowboys

      RB

    3. RUSH YDS115

    4. RUSH TD2

    5. REC YDS45

    6. REC TD0

    McCoy totaled 171 yards from scrimmage last week, while the Cowboys allowed the Redskins to run for more than 200 yards. He should have a huge day.

Wide Receivers

    1. 1
    2. Dez

      Bryant

      Cowboys at Eagles

      WR

    3. REC YDS124

    4. REC TD2

    Bryant should make up for last week's game against a Philadelphia defense that is the league's worst against wide receivers in fantasy terms.
    1. 2
    2. DeSean

      Jackson

      Eagles vs Cowboys

      WR

    3. REC YDS103

    4. REC TD2

    Jackson didn't skip a beat with Nick Foles at the helm, catching six passes for 64 yards and two TDs. Dallas allows 24.8 fantasy points per game to wide receivers.
    1. 3
    2. Justin

      Blackmon

      Jaguars vs Chargers

      WR

    3. REC YDS138

    4. REC TD1

    In two games this year, Blackmon has 19 catches for 326 yards and a TD. He racked up an insane 20 targets last week. He's a true WR1.

Tight Ends

    1. 1
    2. Tony

      Gonzalez

      Falcons vs Buccaneers

      TE

    3. REC YDS87

    4. REC TD2

    Gonzalez stands to benefit from Julio Jones injury in the form of more targets. I'm sliding him up my rest-of-season rankings a few notches.
    1. 2
    2. Jason

      Witten

      Cowboys at Eagles

      TE

    3. REC YDS98

    4. REC TD1

    Witten caught three passes for 27 yards in a lackluster performance for the entire passing game. Philadelphia has been tough on tight ends this year, but you're starting Witten no matter what.
    1. 3
    2. Vernon

      Davis

      49ers at Titans

      TE

    3. REC YDS87

    4. REC TD1

    Davis was a beast last week, catching eight passes for 180 yards and two TDs. He could see a lot of corner Alterraun Verner, who Pro Football Focus grades as the best corner in the league thus far.

Kickers

    1. 1
    2. Caleb

      Sturgis

      Dolphins vs Bills

      K

    3. PAT2

    4. FG4

    Sturgis is 10-for-11 on field goals this year, including three from 50-plus. He should be started every week from here on out.
    1. 2
    2. Justin

      Tucker

      Ravens at Steelers

      K

    3. PAT1

    4. FG4

    Tucker made his only field goal last week, a chippy from 23 yards. He's 12-for-14 this season.
    1. 3
    2. Steven

      Hauschka

      Seahawks at Cardinals

      K

    3. PAT2

    4. FG3

    After two weeks of double-digit scoring, Hauschka made just two field goals last week, both after he passed concussion tests.

Defenses

    1. 1
    2. Chiefs

      vs Texans

      Chiefs vs Texans

      DEFENSE

    3. PTS ALLOWED10

    4. SACKS5

    5. INT3

    6. TD0

    The Chiefs absolutely dominated the Raiders, posting 10 sacks, three interceptions and a touchdown. They could make T.J. Yates' life rough.
    1. 2
    2. 49ers

      at Titans

      49ers at Titans

      DEFENSE

    3. PTS ALLOWED3

    4. SACKS5

    5. INT3

    6. TD0

    Remember a few weeks ago when people thought this defense maybe wasn't what it was the last two years? I think we can put that notion to bed. Start the Niners with extreme confidence this week.
    1. 3
    2. Dolphins

      vs Bills

      Dolphins vs Bills

      DEFENSE

    3. PTS ALLOWED6

    4. SACKS5

    5. INT2

    6. TD0

    I love this matchup for Miami coming off a bye. If they're available in your league, get them now.
