Quarterbacks

    1. 1
    2. Drew

      Brees

      Saints at Falcons

      QB

    3. PASS YDS352

    4. PASS TD4

    5. INT0

    6. RUSH YDS0

    7. RUSH TD0

    Brees had a bit of a down week by his standards against the Niners, but should get back on track against the struggling Falcons.
    1. 2
    2. Matthew

      Stafford

      Lions vs Buccaneers

      QB

    3. PASS YDS357

    4. PASS TD3

    5. INT0

    6. RUSH YDS0

    7. RUSH TD0

    Stafford had 346 yards, two touchdowns and an interception against the Steelers last week. He should thrive against the Bucs, who allow the eighth-most fantasy points per game to quarterbacks.
    1. 3
    2. Peyton

      Manning

      Broncos at Patriots

      QB

    3. PASS YDS349

    4. PASS TD3

    5. INT0

    6. RUSH YDS0

    7. RUSH TD0

    It's a bit funny that it's considered a disappointment when Manning throws for 323 yards and one touchdown. He'll make up for it this week.

Running Backs

    1. 1
    2. Jamaal

      Charles

      Chiefs vs Chargers

      RB

    3. RUSH YDS92

    4. RUSH TD2

    5. REC YDS56

    6. REC TD1

    After being a non-factor against the Broncos last week, Charles should have a monster game on Sunday.
    1. 2
    2. Reggie

      Bush

      Lions vs Buccaneers

      RB

    3. RUSH YDS86

    4. RUSH TD1

    5. REC YDS68

    6. REC TD1

    Bush struggled against the Steelers, running for just 31 yards on 12 carries and catching two of his five targets. You're starting him every week, but the Buccaneers have been decent against opposing running backs, allowing the 12th-fewest fantasy points per game to the position.
    1. 3
    2. Matt

      Forte

      Bears at Rams

      RB

    3. RUSH YDS124

    4. RUSH TD2

    5. REC YDS27

    6. REC TD0

    Forte ran for 83 yards on 18 carries against the Lions and should have a big game against a St. Louis defense that has allowed the third-most fantasy points per game to running backs.

Wide Receivers

    1. 1
    2. Calvin

      Johnson

      Lions vs Buccaneers

      WR

    3. REC YDS134

    4. REC TD2

    Johnson had a huge game last week, catching six passes for 179 yards and two touchdowns. Just another day in the life.
    1. 2
    2. Dez

      Bryant

      Cowboys at Giants

      WR

    3. REC YDS119

    4. REC TD2

    The Giants have been better than average against receivers for fantasy purposes, but you're starting Bryant with extreme confidence every week.
    1. 3
    2. Vincent

      Jackson

      Buccaneers at Lions

      WR

    3. REC YDS112

    4. REC TD2

    Jackson had 10 catches for 165 yards and a touchdown last week. The Lions allow the second-most fantasy points per game to receivers, so anticipate a big game here.

Tight Ends

    1. 1
    2. Rob

      Gronkowski

      Patriots vs Broncos

      TE

    3. REC YDS96

    4. REC TD2

    Gronk should have a very strong game against a Denver defense allowing the sixth-most fantasy points per game to tight ends.
    1. 2
    2. Jimmy

      Graham

      Saints at Falcons

      TE

    3. REC YDS114

    4. REC TD1

    Graham caught six passes for just 41 yards last week. Expect him to atone for that this week.

    2. Jordan

      Cameron

      Browns vs Steelers

      TE

    3. REC YDS88

    4. REC TD1

    Cameron caught six passes for 29 yards last week. Start him as usual, despite the fact that his production has really slowed.

      Broncos at Patriots

      K
