Ranked the No. 11 quarterback on both Yahoo! and NFL.com, Rodgers has been a far cry from the top QB he was drafted to be. But against the Saints last week Rodgers again looked like the MVP, throwing for a season-high 319 yards and four touchdowns while not taking any sacks. Even though the Colts had extra time to prepare for the Packers, they don't have the personnel to slow Rodgers, let alone stop him.

The NFL's highest-rated passer goes up against a Redskins defense that is allowing the second-most net passing yards in the league and has given up a league-worst 11 touchdown passes. Ryan will overwhelm the Redskins with his stable of All-Pro receivers.

As a vegan Foster devours a lot of greens, which sets him up nicely to chew up Gang Green's defense Monday. The league's leader in touches from scrimmage (122), Foster faces a Jets unit that's allowing opposing runners to gain 4.9 yards per carry (30th), 172.8 rushing yards per game (31st) and 1.75 rushing touchdowns per game (32nd). With backup Ben Tate nursing a sore shoulder, Foster should get even runs than usual.

Looking for consistency? Try Lynch, who is averaging 23 carries and 105.8 rushing yards per game thus far and has not produced fewer than 85 yards yet. His Week 5 opponent, meanwhile, is giving up an average of 134.8 yards per game. The Panthers have allowed at least 95 yards to every opponent's top rusher so far this season.

Last week against Cleveland, Rice snapped a non-PPR streak of eight straight games with at least 10 fantasy points scored. He'll start a new streak this week against a Chiefs team that is allowing nearly 5.5 yards per touch to opposing running backs. That number rises to 6.8 yards per touch among those who see the ball at least 10 times.

The pride of Florida Atlantic has joined LaDainian Tomlinson, Earl Campbell, Eric Dickerson and Billy Simms as the only backs to rush for at least 375 yards with four touchdowns through Week 4 of their rookie seasons. That trend isn't going to stop now against a Falcons defense that's prone to giving up big runs (tied for the NFL-high with 18 runs of 10 or more yards allowed) and has given up 5.2 yards per carry, the second-most for any defense through four weeks.

With Greg Jennings likely sidelined at Lucas Oil Stadium, Nelson will more than make up for the loss. James Jones steps in to Jennings spot, which means the Colts will likely line Vontae Davis, one of the easiest corners in the league to burn for a catch, up against Nelson. A wideout has scored against the Colts in each of Indianapolis' games this season.

Cruz leads the league with 32 catches, is tied for No. 1 with 49 targets and is fifth in receiving yards with 388. The absence of Hakeem Nicks makes Cruz Eli Manning's only true downfield threat against a Browns secondary that's allowing a shade under 300 receiving yards per contest, including an average of more than two pass plays of 25 yards or more per contest.

As good as RGIII has been on offense, that's how poor the Redskins have been defending the pass, allowing a whopping 337.3 yards per game, second-worst behind only the Buccaneers. With their hurry-up offense and two studs on the outside, the Falcons will be effective throwing against just about everyone. Hello, perfect storm. Roddy White will also have a big week, but after catching just one of eight balls thrown his way last week, Jones will be back with a vengeance.

This game features the NFL's two most prolific receivers in terms of yardage in Green and Brian Hartline. But having seen the likes of Santonio Homes and Andre Roberts go for big numbers against Miami's deficient pass defense, Green and quarterback Andy Dalton are surely licking their chops. Miami has the league's top run defense, so look for the Bengals to put the ball in the air early and often.

There's a quarterback controversy brewing in Kansas City as Matt Cassel continues to flop as a starter. No matter what happens under center, Bowe's productivity seems to be unaffected. Nobody has been targeted more through the first four weeks. Baltimore has one of the league's most respected defenses, but occasionally the Ravens have been prone to the deepball. Remember last week? The balls that Cleveland's Greg Little dropped in Week 4 agains the Ravens will be caught -- for many yards -- by Bowe.

The Chargers have been relatively successful keeping opposing tight ends off the board, but a closer look shows that the only elite tight end who has faced San Diego, Tony Gonzalez, had a field day. This weekend may see Graham star in a similar performance as Drew Brees is sure to be motivated amid his team's 0-4 start.

Invisible last week after the fantasy world finally caught onto him, Christian Ponder's only true red zone target will bounce back in a big way Sunday against the Titans, who have been at the mercy of tight ends to the tune of six touchdowns through four games.

Last week, the rookie set the Rams' franchise record for longest field goal with a 58-yarder, then follower up with a 60-yarder. This week, the man of many nicknames (Greg the Leg, Legatron, and my personal favorite, Young G.Z.) gets to kick against the undefeated Cardinals, who, as part of their defensive prowess, have allowed an NFL-high 14 field-goal attempts. And we all now know that Zuerlein has yet to see an NFL kick he can't make.

Ray Lewis, Ed Reed, Haloti Ngata and the rest of the Ravens are licking their chops at the prospect of lining up against a Chiefs offense that ranks among the five-worst teams in sacks allowed, interceptions thrown and fumbles lost.
