Quarterbacks

    1. 1
    2. Cam

      Newton

      Panthers vs Buccaneers

      QB

    3. PASS YDS266

    4. PASS TD2

    5. INT0

    6. RUSH YDS39

    7. RUSH TD1

    The Dolphins held Newton in check through the air, but his eight carries for 51 yards and a touchdown gave him a nice fantasy day. He's a strong play against a Buccaneers defense that allows the seventh-most fantasy points per game to quarterbacks.
    1. 2
    2. Peyton

      Manning

      Broncos at Chiefs

      QB

    3. PASS YDS349

    4. PASS TD3

    5. INT0

    6. RUSH YDS0

    7. RUSH TD0

    Manning threw for just 150 yards and two scores against the Patriots last week. The master of adjustments should be ready for his second go-round with the Chiefs.
    1. 3
    2. Andy

      Dalton

      Bengals at Chargers

      QB

    3. PASS YDS337

    4. PASS TD3

    5. INT0

    6. RUSH YDS0

    7. RUSH TD0

    I've got Dalton penciled in for a huge game against a San Diego defense that allows the sixth-most fantasy points per game to quarterbacks.

Running Backs

    1. 1
    2. Adrian

      Peterson

      Vikings vs Bears

      RB

    3. RUSH YDS159

    4. RUSH TD3

    5. REC YDS22

    6. REC TD0

    The Bears allowed 258 rushing yards to the Rams last week. Peterson could legitimately reach that total by himself on Sunday.
    1. 2
    2. Jamaal

      Charles

      Chiefs vs Broncos

      RB

    3. RUSH YDS112

    4. RUSH TD2

    5. REC YDS47

    6. REC TD0

    Charles carved up the Chargers as expected and is one of the top options at the position, as always, this week. It'll be interesting to see if the Chiefs have any new offensive wrinkles in thier second matchup in three weeks against the Broncos.
    1. 3
    2. Frank

      Gore

      49ers vs Rams

      RB

    3. RUSH YDS130

    4. RUSH TD2

    5. REC YDS19

    6. REC TD0

    Gore should be in for a huge day against a St. Louis defense that allows the second-most fantasy points per game to running backs.

Wide Receivers

    1. 1
    2. Calvin

      Johnson

      Lions vs Packers

      WR

    3. REC YDS124

    4. REC TD2

    Johnson had seven receptions for 115 yards last week. He's in line for a big day, even though the Green Bay secondary is back to full strength.
    1. 2
    2. Josh

      Gordon

      Browns vs Jaguars

      WR

    3. REC YDS135

    4. REC TD1

    Gordon burned the Steelers for 237 yards and a score last week. He did plenty of damage after Brandon Weeden took over for an injured Jason Campbell, so there's no reason to downgrade him for the quarterback change.
    1. 3
    2. Dez

      Bryant

      Cowboys vs Raiders

      WR

    3. REC YDS131

    4. REC TD1

    Bryant should feast on a Raiders defense allowing the fifth-most fantasy points per game to receivers.

Tight Ends

    1. 1
    2. Jimmy

      Graham

      Saints at Seahawks

      TE

    3. REC YDS105

    4. REC TD2

    Graham had five catches for 100 yards and a touchdown last week. Get him going in Week 13.
    1. 2
    2. Rob

      Gronkowski

      Patriots at Texans

      TE

    3. REC YDS107

    4. REC TD1

    Gronk is the one Patriot with a clear-cut starring role in the offense, other than Tom Brady, of course.
    1. 3
    2. Vernon

      Davis

      49ers vs Rams

      TE

    3. REC YDS90

    4. REC TD1

    The Rams have done well against opposing tight ends this year, but that didn't stop Martellus Bennet from having a big game last week. Start Davis with confidence.

Kickers

    1. 1
    2. Alex

      Henery

      Eagles vs Cardinals

      K

    3. PAT2

    4. FG4

    Henery is worth a shot in this matchup and could be considered a reliable fantasy kicker for the rest of the season.
    1. 2
    2. Matt

      Bryant

      Falcons at Bills

      K

    3. PAT1

    4. FG4

    The Bills can be stout at times on defense, and that could help make Bryant a worthwhile play this week.
    1. 3
    2. Stephen

      Gostkowski

      Patriots at Texans

      K

    3. PAT4

    4. FG3

    Gostkowski remains as efficient as ever and is tied to an ever-improving offense. Start him with confidence.

Defenses

    1. 1
    2. Dolphins

      at Jets

      Dolphins at Jets

      DEFENSE

    3. PTS ALLOWED6

    4. SACKS4

    5. INT3

    6. TD0

    The Dolphins didn't play poorly against the Panthers, though their struggles against the run came back to bite them. They are a great play against a terrible Jets offense, however.
    1. 2
    2. Ravens

      vs Steelers

      Ravens vs Steelers

      DEFENSE

    3. PTS ALLOWED20

    4. SACKS4

    5. INT2

    6. TD0

    Threes were wild for the Ravens last week, as they forced three turnovers, sacked Geno Smith three times and held the Jets to three points. They should be started this week.
    1. 3
    2. Browns

      vs Jaguars

      Browns vs Jaguars

      DEFENSE

    3. PTS ALLOWED13

    4. SACKS4

    5. INT2

    6. TD0

    The Browns were a total no-show against Ben Roethlisberger and the Steelers a week ago. The Jaguars present a nice opportunity to bounce back.
