The Texans have a reputation for being a strong defense team, but the losses of J.J. Watt and Whitney Mercilus have watered down the pass rush and exposed their secondary. All that has left them with a mediocre pass defense, as illustrated by them ranking 16th in DVOA against the pass. Jared Goff may not be an elite quarterback yet, but he has proven capable of being a fantasy asset and is a worthy starter this week as a result.

When Bilal Powell has gotten volume this season he has been worthy of starting. With Matt Forte out, Powell should see a nice boost in volume. Running back is looking quite thin this week, so the Forte injury creates at least one more name to trust this weekend.


The Lions backfield has been a headache this season so don’t expect that to change this week. More importantly, don’t let the matchup fool you as the Browns defense has actually been quite good against the run. While a matchup against the Browns is usually a flashing neon light for fantasy owners, don’t fall for the trap with Ameer Abdullah and company this week.

  34. Josh Doctson, vs. MIN
  35. Corey Davis, vs. CIN
  36. Davante Adams, @CHI


Robby Anderson has a tremendous matchup against the Bucs this week as they are among the worst NFL defenses in passing yards allowed per game as well as passing touchdowns allowed. That sets up nicely for Anderson, who has found the endzone in three consecutive games.


No Packers receiver has surpassed 60 receiving yards in a game since Aaron Rodgers has been sidelined. Chicago has been relatively stout on the defensive side of the ball – they are currently ranked 10th in pass DVOA, so steer clear of all Packers receivers.


  1. Rob Gronkowski, @DEN
  2. Evan Engram, @SF
  3. Austin Seferia-Jenkins, @TB
  4. Cameron Brate, vs. NYJ
  5. Jack Doyle, vs. PIT

  7. Jason Witten, @ATL
  8. Kyle Rudolph, @WAS
  9. Charles Clay, vs. NO
  10. Hunter Henry, @JAC
  11. Austin Hooper, vs. DAL
  12. Ed Dickson, vs. MIA
  13. Vernon Davis/Jordan Reed, vs. MIN
  14. Garrett Celek, vs. NYG
  15. Eric Ebron, vs. CLE
  16. Tyler Kroft, @TEN
  17. J. Howard, vs. NYJ
  18. Colby Fleener, @BUF
  19. David Njoku, @DET
  20. Julius Thomas, @CAR


Trusting a player immediately after they return from injury is always a risky proposition, and Charles Clay’s injury history doesn’t ease any concern. However, the Bills target their tight ends heavily, so Clay should remain a major part of the offense even after missing three weeks due to injury.

Ed Dickson is another name to consider, as the Panthers are lacking options in the passing game and the Dolphins are among the worst in the NFL in defending opposing tight ends.
