  3. Philip Rivers, vs. WAS
  4. Dak Prescott, @NYG
  5. Jameis Winston, vs. DET

  17. Marcus Mariota, @ARI

  19. Brett Hundley, @CLE
  20. Josh McCown, @DEN

START

Jameis Winston and Jimmy Garoppolo both have favorable matchups this week and both looked good last week in their first starts in quite some time. Winston is likely off the waiver wire at this point, but Garoppolo may still be there for those looking to stream a quarterback in place of injured/underperforming stud.

SIT

Matt Stafford is battling injury and is likely to be without the entire right side of his offensive line. There are probably some streaming options available, so even in a positive matchup, I’d look elsewhere.

RUNNING BACK

  1. Le’Veon Bell, vs. BAL
  2. Todd Gurley, vs. PHI
  3. LeSean McCoy, vs. IND
  4. Lamar Miller, vs. SF
  5. Melvin Gordon, vs. WAS
  6. Kareem Hunt, vs. OAK
  7. Marshawn Lynch, @KC
  8. Kenyan Drake, vs. NE
  9. Samaje Perine, @LAC
  10. Giovani Bernard, vs. CHI
  11. Leonard Fournette, vs. SEA
  12. Dion Lewis, @MIA
  13. Alex Collins, @PIT
  14. Alfred Morris, @NYG
  15. Jordan Howard, @CIN
  16. Jamaal Williams, @CLE
  17. Frank Gore, @BUF
  18. 18.Rex Burkhead, @MIA
  19. Orleans Darkwa, vs. DAL
  20. Carlos Hyde, @HOU
  21. Isaiah Crowell, vs. GB
  22. Jay Ajayi, @LAR
  23. Latavius Murray, @CAR
  24. Doug Martin, vs. DET
  25. DeMarco Murray, @ARI
  26. C.J. Anderson, vs. NYJ
  27. Bilal Powell, @DEN
  28. Derrick Henry, @ARI
  29. Mike Davis, @JAC
  30. Theo Riddick, @TB

START

Giovani Bernard should be in line for plenty of carries this week. When given opportunity this season, he has looked good so he is an option worth starting in most cases this week.

Jay Ajayi finally led the Eagles in snaps last week, but he had a tough matchup so was unable to take advantage. This week, the snaps should remain, but in a much more positive matchup. There is plenty of risk, but Ajayi is worth FLEX or even RB2 consideration.

WIDE RECEIVER

  1. Antonio Brown, vs. BAL
  2. DeAndre Hopkins, vs.SF
  3. 3. A.J. Green, vs. CHI
  4. Brandin Cooks, @MIA
  5. Tyreek Hill, vs. OAK
  6. Keenan Allen, vs. WAS
  7. Larry Fitzgerald, vs. TEN
  8. Michael Crabtree, @KC
  9. Adam Thielen, @CAR
  10. Mike Evans, vs. DET
  11. Josh Gordon, vs. GB
  12. Davante Adams, @CLE
  13. Dez Bryant, @NYG
  14. Marvin Jones, @TB
  15. Sterling Shepard, vs. DAL
  16. Golden Tate, @TB
  17. T.Y. Hilton WBUF
  18. Alshon Jeffery, @LAR
  19. Jarvis Landry, vs. NE
  20. Stefon Diggs, @CAR
  21. Marquise Goodwin, @HOU
  22. Demaryius Thomas, vs. NYJ
  23. Jamison Crowder, @LAC
  24. Doug Baldwin, @JAC
  25. Devin Funchess, vs. MIN
  26. Robby Anderson, @DEN
  27. Mike Wallace, @PIT
  28. Martavis Bryant, vs. BAL
  29. Cooper Kupp, vs. PHI
  30. Marqise Lee, vs. SEA
  31. Chris Hogan, @MIA
  32. Sammy Watkins, vs. PHI
  33. Nelson Agholor, @LAR
  34. Emmanuel Sanders, vs. NYJ
  35. Corey Coleman, vs. GB
  36. 36.Will Fuller, vs.SF

START

You can feel confident in starting many of the receivers in the Steelers-Ravens matchup. The Ravens lost corner Jimmy Smith to injury/suspension last week so that will open up the field a bit. Without JuJu Smith-Schuster, Martavis Bryant will step into more targets. On the other side, Mike Wallace has the revenge narrative going for him, but the Steelers have also gotten torched for big plays through the air routinely since Joe Haden was lost to injury.

TIGHT END

  1. Travis Kelce, vs. OAK
  2. Evan Engram, vs. DAL
  3. Zach Ertz, @LAR
  4. Jack Doyle, @BUF
  5. Delanie Walker, @ARI
  6. Jimmy Graham, @JAC
  7. Jason Witten, @NYG
  8. Cameron Brate, vs. DET
  9. Kyle Rudolph, @CAR
  10. Hunter Henry, vs. WAS
  11. Austin Seferian-Jenkins, @DEN
  12. Stephen Anderson, vs. SF
  13. Jared Cook, @KC
  14. Ricky Seals-Jones, vs. TEN
  15. Tyler Kroft, vs. CHI
  16. David Njoku, vs. GB
  17. Charles Clay, vs. IND
  18. Vernon Davis, @LAC
  19. Julius Thomas, vs. NE
  20. Ben Watson, @PIT

START

Jason Witten has provided a safe floor for much of the season, even if his production hasn’t been flashy. In a pivotal playoff matchups, locking in five to six points from your tight end isn’t so bad, but the matchup against the Giants also provides upside for more given the Giants poor play against the tight end.
