Quarterbacks

Watson - Chalk QB of the week against a bad Oakland D. Watson has attempted 30 or more passes in 5 straight games. What's mind boggling is he does have 5 td's at home this year (3 games), BUT they're all in one game. With Fuller out, Watson will feed Nuk Hopkins with a few scores.

Brees - Comes back into a perfect spot. He's priced way down on FanDuel at 7.2k, where he's going to need to throw 30+ times today. With Kamara out, and Arizona putting up points it should be a great afternoon for the old man.

Allen - Heavy winds this week for the kid, BUT don't we love QB's who can run? He hasn't had that monster game yet, but he faced an Eagles defense who's 27th against the pass this year. Allen has scored 22% more fantasy points against Non-division teams dating back to last season.

Stafford - Quietly having a good year, while he picked apart a good Minnesota defense last week. Stafford has played really well at home this year, throwing for 9 touchdowns to just 3 picks. New York's defense overall is one of the worst in the league, and will struggle covering these Detroit receivers.

Running backs

Gurley - RB's vs Cincy duh! Malcolm Brown is out, so could this be the week we see Gurley with 20+ carries?!?

Fournette - Every single week he continues to get a huge work load. 91% of the snaps, and 20+ carries in 4 straight games.

Carson - another volume based guy, who continues to produce. A down week last week against a tough Baltimore defense, but lining up against a defense ranked in the 20's this week. He's also involved in the passing game as well.

Murray - Lat back in the starting lineup again with Kamara out. I made the mistake of fading him last week which cost me a takedown. He'll be a volume play yet again, which I'll take at 6.2k on FanDuel.

Wide Receivers

Thomas - Finally reunited with his quarterback, although he was great with Teddy. He's been targeted 9 times in the red zone over the last 3 weeks, and at least 5 targets in his last 5 games. He's matchup proof and should be targeted early and often from Brees with no Kamara.

Hopkins - Obvious play with no Fuller this week. Could see 15+ targets after seeing back to back weeks with 12 targets.

Godwin - 3 straight 100 yard games along with 4 touchdowns. No one can cover Godwin right now. He may see a slight bump in target with Howard out as well.

Golladay - Loooooooove this matchup for Kenny this week, bounce back spot for the kid. Prior to last week he saw 8 or more targets in all of the games this season, topping 100 yards in 2 of those. Give me all of the Golladay this week.

Sutton - Bye bye Manny Sanders, hello targets. Already seeing 7 or more targets a game this year, he'll definitely be in the double digits this week.

Brown - Philly's secondary is arguably the worst in the league, which lines up well for Brown and Co. He's had double digit targets twice this season, but I do think he see's 10+ this week.

Tight ends

Hooper - Give him ALL OF THE SANU TARGETS!!!!!

Waller - Focal points of this Oakland passing game. 7+ targets in all but 1 game.

Engram - one bad game and they drop his price. Shepard is still out, only bumps him even more.

Defense

Rams

Pats

Jets
