The bye week this week could be a detrimental one to many as the Chiefs and Saints are on their byes, players like Jamaal Charles, Drew Brees, and Pierre Thomas. Good luck fantasy owners.
QB: K. Cousins- Two weeks ago Cousins had a detour and played very poorly, but last week he was back and had no turnovers against a good Seahawks defense. This week, Cousins is playing Arizona who has been giving QB’s a 19 FPA with a decent secondary.
RB: L. Miller- Miller has been doing well for a middle round fantasy draft pick, and will continue to make fantasy owners happy as he will be playing the Packers. The Packers have allowed 22 FPA to RB’s This year, as their d-line hasn’t been the best.
WR: G. Tate- Tate has risen to a great fantasy player since Megatron’s injury, as he is Stafford’s best WR option while Megatron’s on the bench. Minnesota is not great against receivers this year, giving them 24 FPA this year. Though they are home, Minnesota has allowed an average 297 receiving yards and 23 total touchdown catches in their last ten home games.
TE: D. Walker- Walker’s numbers have been like a roller coaster, but the coaster is projected to reach a high elevation this week. Walker will be playing the Jaguars who allow a 13 FPA, the second most. Keep in mind, Walker is still the #1 receiving option for the Titans.
K: P. Dawson- In his last two games, Dawson has had a combined 36 fantasy points. While his team can score, he can kick (having 50+ yard kicks this year). In his last 4 meetings with the Rams, Dawson has kicked 9 field goals, and they have allowed a nine FPA this year.
DEF: Chargers- The Chargers D was great last week against a weak Jets offense, and this week they will be playing a weak Oakland offense, so I expect a lot from them. Oakland allows defenses an 8 FPA per week.
Start Of The Week:
P. Rivers- Rivers has been red hot this season, and a early MVP candidate. Rivers has 12 passing touchdowns thus far this season and has not had less than 19 fantasy points the whole year. Rivers has done very well against the Raiders, who have given up at least 300 yards and 2 touchdowns in three of the last four games in Oakland.
QB: C.Newton- Newton has had an okay season, but won’t start to have a great one this week as he will be playing a Bengals defense that has been very good, even though they lost badly against the Pats. The Bengals have allowed 1 or fewer touchdowns in 9 of 10 home games, and superCam won’t hurt that streak.
RB: S. Ridley- Ridley has been very inconsistent, making him a risk every week. The Bills have done well against the run, having a 11 FPA against RB’s.
WR: C. Patterson- Patterson has not nearly lived up to the hype he created for himself last year, as he has a total 15 fantasy points in his last 4 games. It doesn’t help his case that he is playing a Detroit secondary that allows a 15 FPA.
TE: J. Cook- Cook hasn’t had good recent history against the ‘Niners, as they allowed him fewer than five points in their last two meetings with the Rams. Coincidentally, the ‘Niners have allowed a 5 FPA this year.
K: N. Folk- The Jets have not given Folk close to enough for him to do well, that’s a big reason why he is on this list. Though he is a great kicker the Jets simply make him useless. The Broncos have allowed a 6 FPA this year to top it off.
DEF: Dallas- Dallas’ D was improving, then they crashed hard last week. They will play a Seahawks offense that has been good this year, giving defenses a 4 FPA per game.
Sit Of The Week:
M. Bennett- Bennett is a very good September player, but a terrible October player. Bennett has a 12:10 game to touchdown ratio in September, and a 23:2 game to touchdown ratio in October. On top of that, Bennett will be playing the Falcons, who have allowed a 4 FPA to TE’s this year.
