Jared Goff: The Cardinals have been fairly successful at shutting down opposing teams WR1, but they are a disaster trying to cover the secondary pieces of a team. This is illustrated by the 13 passing touchdowns the Cardinals have allowed, second most in the NFL. This is a game that should shoot out, so Goff is a good option for those struggling to find a viable starter at QB this week – maybe a one-week option for those that lost Rodgers.


Andy Dalton: Dalton has bounced back nicely after rumors that he would be benched early on in the season. However, in his last three games in Pittsburgh, Dalton has passed for only four touchdowns. He isn’t the worst option if you’re in a tough spot, but there’s no reason to force him into lineups.


  1. Ezekiel Elliot, @SF
  2. Leonard Fournette, @IND
  3. Devonta Freeman, @NE
  4. Le’Veon Bell, vs. CIN
  5. Derrick Henry @CLE
  6. Todd Gurley, vs. ARI

  8. LeSean McCoy, vs. TB
  9. Jay Ajayi, vs. NYJ
  10. Carlos Hyde, vs. DAL
  11. C.J. Anderson, @LAC
  12. Melvin Gordon, vs. DEN
  13. Jordan Howard, vs. CAR
  14. Doug Martin, @BUF
  15. Adrian Peterson, @LAR
  16. Joe Mixon, @PIT
  17. Duke Johnson, vs.  TEN
  18. Alvin Kamara, @GB
  19. Dion Lewis, vs. ATL
  20. LeGarrette Blount, vs. WAS
  21. Jerick McKinnon, vs BAL
  22. Christian McCaffery, @CHI
  23. Alex Collins, @MIN
  24. Chris Thompson, @PHI
  25. Tevin Coleman, @NE
  26. Aaron Jones, vs. NO
  27. Frank Gore, vs. JAC
  28. Javorius Allen, @MIN
  29. Isaiah Crowell, TEN
  30. Ty Montgomery, NO


Derrick Henry: Henry’s time may finally be here, as DeMarco Murray appears to be a game time decision due to his hamstring injury. Even if he is able to go, it would make sense for the Titans to give the majority of the rushing work to Henry to let Murray get to 100%.


  1. Antonio Brown, vs. CIN
  2. Dez Bryant, @SF
  3. Julio Jones, @NE
  4. Mike Evans, @BUF
  5. Michael Thomas, @GB
  6. A.J. Green, @PIT
  7. Brandin Cooks, vs. ATL
  8. Demaryius Thomas, @LAC
  9. Larry Fitzgerald, @LAR
  10. Chris Hogan, vs. ATL
  11. Davante Adams, vs. NO
  12. Adam Thielen, vs. BAL
  13. Pierre Garcon, vs. DAL
  14. Jarvis Landry, vs. NYJ
  15. Kelvin Benjamin, @CHI
  16. Alshon Jeffery, vs. WAS
  17. Doug Baldwin, @NYG
  18. Jordy Nelson, vs. NO
  19. Nelson Agholor, vs. WAS
  20.  Eric Decker, @CLE
  21. Keenan Allen, vs. DEN
  22. Rishard Matthews, @CLE
  23. Devin Funchess, @CHI
  24. John Brown, @LAR
  25. Robert Woods, vs. ARI
  26. Ted Ginn, @GB
  27. DeSean Jackson, @BUF
  28. Terrelle Pryor, @ PHI
  29. Martavis Bryant, vs. CIN
  30. Danny Amendola, vs. ATL
  31. T.Y. Hilton, vs. JAC
  32. Marqise Lee, @IND
  33. Randall Cobb, vs. NO
  34. Jermaine Kearse, @MIA
  35. Kenny Stills, vs. NYJ
  36. Josh Doctson, @PHI


Nelson Agholor: He continues to produce, and even with Josh Norman’s potential return he should be able to do so again this week. Norman should shadow Alshon Jeffery which downgrades him, but also should open up the field for Agholor.

Robert Woods is an honorable mention as a solid start. He has a floor of six targets over the past four weeks and is heading into a positive matchup. If positive touchdown regression works in his favor this week, he should be a very viable fantasy receiver.


  1. Rob Gronkowski,vs. ATL
  2. Zach Ertz, vs. WAS
  3. Jimmy Graham, @NYG
  4. Delanie Walker, @CLE
  5. Hunter Henry, vs .DEN
  6. Austin Seferian-Jenkins, @MIA
  7. Evan Engram, vs. SEA
  8. Cameron Brate, @BUF
  9. Kyle Rudolph, vs. BAL
  10. George Kittle, vs. DAL
  11. Jason Witten, @SF
  12. Jordan Reed, @PHI
  13. Nick O’ Leary, vs.TB
  14. Austin Hooper, @NE
  15. Zach Miller, vs. CAR
  16. Martellus Bennett, vs. NO
  17. David Njoku, vs. TEN
  18. Jack Doyle, vs. JAC
  19. Ed Dickson, @CHI
  20. Tyler Kroft, @PIT


Nick O’ Leary: The Bills go out of their way to target tight ends, so while Nick O’Leary is not a household name, he should see a lot of targets as he fills in the for the injured Charles Clay.
