QBs:

Josh Allen – Coming off a great week against Seattle last week, Allen has another juicy matchup with Arizona this week. This is going to be a high scoring game and Vegas has an o/u of 56.5 points on this game (highest of the week). In 9 games so far this season, Josh Allen has finished a QB #3 or better on 4 of those weeks. On the other hand, Arizona is just coming off a week allowing Tua (in his second game) to drop almost 22FP on them. The week before, they were torched by Russell Wilson for 33FP. We know Allen has done it in the past and can very well finish this week with another high QB1 performance.

Kyler Murray – Just like Allen above, his opposing QB, Murray is also in play this week. Murray is on fire this year and he is currently the QB#1 in total fantasy points (this includes his bye week). He is also as consistent as you can get. In 8 games so far, he has only finished once outside of QB#6 on the week. He also brings the right rushing upside averaging 9.5 rush attempts and almost 68 rushing yards per game. That’s almost like throwing 2 TDs. He should be a locked and loaded QB1 this week. 

Jared Goff – I believe it’s becoming a theme this year to target QBs facing Seattle defense. Goff gets a favorable matchup against the Seahawks with an o/u of 54.5 points (second highest on the week). Seahawks has allowed an average of 27.5 points to opposing QB (by far the most by any team). Josh Allen just dropped the most 36 FP on them last week including 3 passing TD and 1 rushing TD. Goff is also coming off a bye week and should have no problem moving the ball.

RBs:

Alvin Kamara – Kamara gets to face the San Francisco defense this week. SF is clearly banged up with injuries this year and NO is a -9.5 favorite to win this game. If they get up early, expect them to run the ball and eat up the clock. Kamara is also consistent and has only finished outside RB1 range once in his 8 weeks so far. He should be locked and loaded RB1 this week.

Aaron Jones – Jones gets a favorable matchup against Jacksonville this week. Similar to the game above, GB is a -13 point favorite in this game and again if they get up early, they might rely on Jones to keep running the ball. Jacksonville has also allowed the 8th most points to opposing RBs including a 13.3FP game from Duke Johnson last week. Jones has a safe floor and a high upside this week.  

Miles Sanders – Sanders is coming back from the injury and he is instantly in play this week against New York Giants. The last time these teams faced each other, Sanders was injured, and Boston Scott dropped almost 17FP on the giants. This was also on limited opportunities of 12 attempts and 3 targets for a combined 92 yards and 1 TD. We can expect Sanders to do at least that if not better in this matchup.

Mike Davis – With CMC already declared out this week, Davis is a great value pick. He gets to face the Tampa Bay defense, which is not a great matchup, but we know that whenever CMC is out, Davis does get guaranteed volume. We also know TB just allowed Kamara/Murray combo to drop almost 19FP on them last week. Davis should be safe to finish in the RB2 range but wouldn’t be surprised if he finds the end zone and finishes in the RB1 range. At this price, he has the right upside this week

WRs:

Keenan Allen – Allen is becoming a norm in these articles. This is his third straight week on making it on this list and I wouldn’t be surprised if this streak continuous. He does have one of the most favorable rest of the season schedule left. Yet again last week, he got 11 targets for 9 receptions, 103 yards and 1 TD. We know Herbert is looking at him often on short and long balls. With a great matchup against Miami this week, he should have a safe floor again this week.

Davante Adams – Since his return from injury and bye week, Adams is the WR#1 in the last 4 weeks and its not even close. He leads the second highest WR in A.J Brown by more than 6 FP per game. He has now scored in each of his last 3 weeks and has yet to finish outside WR#3 on the week. He is clearly Rodgers favorite target by getting almost 13 targets per week in that timeframe. He gets the favorable matchup against Jacksonville this week and with GB being a heavy favorite, Adams should have no problem finishing in the WR 1 range again this week.

Stefon Diggs – As mentioned in the QB section, you want as many pieces of the Buffalo-Arizona game as possible with the highest o/u on the week. Diggs is the clear cut WR1 on Buffalo getting an average 10.1 targets per game. He has scored in double digits in all but 1 of his game this season and should have a safe outing this week.

TEs:

Darren Waller – Waller was featured in this article last week and makes it again this week. Waller leads all TE in targets per game and is also seeing a team high 28% target share (also 6th best in the entire NFL). He faces the Denver defense who aren’t the greatest matchup but with that volume, he should still be safe.

Noah Fant – The opposing TE from the same matchup is also a great play. Fant left the game last week against Atlanta but came back and saw a team high snap at the TE position. He also averages a healthy 6.6 targets per game and in the TE wasteland, that is a great number. On the other hand, LV has given up huge performances to Kelce (20.8FP in week 5) and Gronkowski (14.7 FP in week 7). I am not saying Fant should be able to match those numbers but we at least we know that this is in the realm of possibilities. Regardless, he should be a safe play at the TE this week.

Austin Hooper – Hooper comes back from his appendectomy and bye week and should be in line for a great week against Houston. We all know Baker likes throwing the ball to the TE position. The Bryant/Njoku combo got 6 targets and 8 targets in the last two weeks that Hooper was out and converted these into relevant TE numbers. Hooper also had a healthy target share of more than 20% in each of his last 3 games prior to injury and we should expect him to get back to those numbers again this week.

DEF:

Saints, Eagles, Giants
