START

The Chiefs have finally realized once again who their offense needs to run through, and that has worked out well for them in recent weeks. I have confidence in Alex Smith to produce again as a result.

  1. Todd Gurley, @HOU
  2. Kareem Hunt, vs. MIA
  3. Le’Veon Bell, @HOU
  4. LeSean McCoy, @NE

  15. C.J. Anderson, @WAS
  16. Theo Riddick, @CIN
  17. Lamar Miller vs. PIT
  18. DeMarco Murray, vs. LAR
  19. Christian McCaffery, vs. TB
  20. Jay Ajayi, vs. OAK
  21. Marshawn Lynch, @PHI
  22. Carlos Hyde, vs. JAC
  23. Joe Mixon, vs. DET
  24. Jerrick McKinnon, @GB
  25. Isaiah Crowell, @CHI
  26. Frank Gore. @BAL
  27. Bilal Powell, vs. LAC
  28. Mike Davis, @DAL
  29. Jonathan Stewart, vs. TB
  30. Peyton Barber, @CAR

START

Alex Collins is in for a bounce back week, as the Ravens have an implied total of 27.25. That means Collins has a good chance of finding the end zone multiple times and racking up carries towards the end of the game.

SIT

The emergence of Jimmy G hasn’t been good for everyone,, especially Carlos Hyde. After being a big part of the 49ers passing offense most of the season, Hyde has just five catches in his past three games. That lowers his floor greatly in a tough matchup against the Jaguars.

WIDE RECEIVER

  1. DeAndre Hopkins, vs. PIT
  2. Keenan Allen, @NYJ
  3. Adam Thielen, @GB
  4. Michael Thomas, vs. ATL
  5. Brandin Cooks, vs. BUF
  6. Mike Evans, @CAR
  7. Doug Baldwin, @DAL
  8. Tyreek Hill, vs. MIA
  9. Julio Jones, @NO
  10. JuJu Smith-Schuster, @HOU
  11. Larry Fitzgerald, vs. NYG
  12. Devin Funchess, vs. TB
  13. Alshon Jeffery, vs. OAK
  14. Marvin Jones, @CIN
  15. A.J. Green, vs. DET
  16. Dez Bryant, vs. SEA
  17. Stefon Diggs, @GB
  18. Michael Crabtree, @PHI
  19. Robert Woods, @TEN
  20. Mike Wallace, vs. IND
  21. Jarvis Landry, @KC
  22. Demaryius Thomas, @WAS
  23. Martavis Bryant, @HOU
  24. Golden Tate, @CIN
  25. Dede Westbrook, @SF
  26. Josh Gordon, @CHI
  27. Sterling Shepard, @ARI
  28. Cooper Kupp, @TEN
  29. Nelson Agholor, vs. OAK
  30. Paul Richardson, @DAL
  31. Sammy Watkins, @TEN
  32. Kendall Wright, vs. CLE
  33. Robby Anderson, vs. LAC
  34. Jamison Crowder, vs. DEN
  35. Marquise Goodwin, vs. JAC
  36. Rishard Matthews, vs. LAR

START

Kendall Wright has turned into Mitchell Trubisky’s first target. The Bears offense is still atrocious so that isn’t necessarily something to feel confident in, but Wright is worthy of WR3/FLEX consideration against the Browns.

TIGHT END

  1. Rob Gronkowski, vs. BUF
  2. Travis Kelce, vs. MIA
  3. Zach Ertz, vs. OAK
  4. Greg Olsen, vs. TB
  5. Delanie Walker, vs. LAR
  6. Kyle Rudolph, @GB
  7. Jimmy Graham, @DAL
  8. Evan Engram, @ARI
  9. Eric Ebron, @CIN
  10. Jared Cook, @PHI
  11. Ben Watson, vs. IND
  12. Jack Doyle, @BAL
  13. Jason Witten, vs. SEA
  14. Cameron Brate, @CAR
  15. Vernon Davis, vs. DEN
  16. Charles Clay, @NE
  17. Antonio Gaes, @NYJ
  18. Jesse James, @HOU
  19. Ricky Seals-Jones, vs. NYG
  20. Tyler Kroft, vs. DE
