- QB Josh Freeman- Freeman has been brilliant over the past three weeks and should continue his resurgence today against the Raiders.
- QB Matt Stafford- The Jaguars have allowed multiple touchdowns to every quarterback they’ve faced in their past five games. Stafford is coming off a breakout week 8 performance and should have another productive day.
- HB Willis McGahee- McGahee had a big game last week against the Saints. Today the Broncos face a Bengals defense that has been torched on the ground over the past three weeks. McGahee has also become more of a focal point in the passing game- with 17 catches in the Broncos past four games.
- TE Jermaine Gresham- The Broncos have had a tough time stopping opposing tight ends all year. Gresham is a good starting option this week, and is still available in a lot of leagues.
- TE Heath Miller- Miller and the Steelers face a Giants defense that allowed Jason Witten to catch 18 passes last week. Miller probably won’t catch half that many, but he could do some damage and is worth starting.
- TE Greg Olsen- Olsen and the Panthers face a Redskins defense that has allowed the second most TE fantasy points this season. With Brandon LaFell listed as doubtful for today’s game, Olsen will likely be targeted early and often.
- WR Denarius Moore- Moore has quietly been having a very productive season, which should continue today against the Bucs and their vulnerable pass defense.
- WR Jeremy Maclin and DeSean Jackson- The Eagles face the Saints and their horrendous defense Monday night. The two receivers are poised for a big game.
- WR Titus Young- Young had a big game last week against Seattle, with nine catches for 100 yards and two touchdowns. With Nate Burleson out for the rest of the year, Young should continue to be one of Matt Stafford’s favorite targets.
- QB Andy Dalton- Dalton has thrown at least one interception in every game this season. The Broncos should be able to keep him in check.
- QB Ryan Fitzpatrick- Fitzpatrick has struggled this season against good defenses. The Texans should limit his production
- QB Christian Ponder- Ponder has struggled lately, and may have a rough day against the Seahawks.
- HB CJ Spiller- Spiller is clearly ultra-talented, but his fantasy upside is limited as long as he’s splitting carries with Fred Jackson.
- TE Jermichael Finley- Finley has been essentially a nonfactor all season long. Keep him on the bench until he shows some signs of life.
- TE Kyle Rudolph- Rudolph has been in a slump over the past two weeks, and it may be prolonged as the Vikings face the Seahawks- who have only allowed two TE touchdowns all season.
- WR Kenny Britt- Britt’s knee doesn’t appear to be quite 100 percent yet, and he probably won’t have a breakout performance against a Bears defense that has only allowed four touchdowns this season to opposing wide receivers.
- WR Steve Johnson- The Texans have been tough on no. 1 receivers all season, and should limit the damage done by Johnson- who is still in search of his first 100-yard game of the season.
- WR Sidney Rice- The Seahawks face Rice’s former team today, the Vikings- who have also done a good job of keeping opposing no. 1 receivers in check this year. Rice may struggle today.
