  1. Tom Brady, NE QB at OAK
  2. Alex Smith, KC QB at NYG
  3. Carson Wentz, PHI QB at DAL
  4. Dak Prescott, DAL QB vs. PHI
  5. Derek Carr, OAK QB vs. NE
  6. Russell Wilson, SEA QB vs. ATL
  7. Jared Goff, LAR QB at MIN
  8. Drew Brees, NO QB vs. WAS
  9. Matthew Stafford, DET QB at CHI
  10. Ben Roethlisberger, PIT QB vs. TEN
  11. Kirk Cousins, WAS QB at NO
  12. Matt Ryan, ATL QB at SEA
  13. Blake Bortles, JAC QB at CLE
  14. Eli Manning, NYG QB vs. KC
  15. Marcus Mariota, TEN QB at PIT

Future shoe-in Hall of Famer Tom Brady embarrassed the formerly feared Denver Broncos secondary for 266 yards passing and 3 TDs. Tom didn’t even care about who he was playing he just went about his business and torched the Broncos. Brady obviously has an even better matchup this week against the Oakland Raiders who are 11th worst in the league against the pass on a passing yards per game basis and who have allowed 14 passing TDs over the season. This game is going to be a shootout in my opinion with the Patriots winning mainly due to the arm of Tom Brady. Fantasy Projection: 321 yards passing 3 TDs

Blake Bortles this year has had glimpses of glory, but has mostly been un-impressive even though his team continues to win on the back of a strong defense. Bortles is able to put up some solid fantasy games through the air as well as using his legs which is an added bonus for fantasy owners. Bortles takes on the Cleveland Browns this week who are middle of the pack against the pass on a yards per game basis, but are at the bottom of the league in TDs allowed to QBs at 19 over the season. This matchup has Bortles falling within the top 15 at QB this week. I don’t expect a huge game from Bortles, but in a pinch he is not a horrible QB streaming option. Fantasy Projection: 245 yards passing 2 TDs 25 yards rushing.

Running Back
  1. Kareem Hunt, KC RB at NYG
  2. Le’Veon Bell, PIT RB vs. TEN
  3. LeSean McCoy, BUF RB at LAC
  4. Melvin Gordon, LAC RB vs. BUF
  5. Alvin Kamara, NO RB vs. WAS
  6. Todd Gurley, LAR RB at MIN
  7. Leonard Fournette, JAC RB at CLE
  8. Mark Ingram, NO RB vs. WAS
  9. Jordan Howard, CHI RB vs. DET
  10. Jay Ajayi, PHI RB at DAL
  11. Tevin Coleman, ATL RB at SEA
  12. Jerick McKinnon, MIN RB vs. LAR
  13. Lamar Miller, HOU RB vs. ARI
  14. Chris Thompson, WAS RB at NO
  15. DeMarco Murray, TEN RB at PIT

Tevin Coleman has always possessed the physical ability and talent to be a star running back in the NFL, but has consistently been splitting carries with his colleague Freeman since entering the league. This week Coleman will be the lone RB in the backfield and will see plenty of touches to increase his fantasy value. Coleman unfortunately is taking on the Seattle Seahawks this week who are 9th best against the run on a rushing yards per game basis, but who are still allowing over 100 yards rushing per game. Coleman may struggle against this matchup, but the volume he gets this week should have him on the fringe of being a top 10 RB this week. Fantasy Projection: 65 yards rushing 1 TD 2 receptions for 13 yards.

Chris Thompson has had some HUGE games this year as a member of the Redskins backfield mainly through his receiving ability. He has put up receiving performances of over 75 yards 3 times so far this season and has a chance to do it again this week against the New Orleans Saints. The Saints are middle of the pack against the run this year, but with Thompson’s receiving ability he should not be affected greatly by a decent run D. Another factor in Thompson’s favor this week is that Rob Kelly will not be playing this week which should add a few more touches to his workload. The Redskins will be down in this game and will need to pass to Thompson to try and keep up with the Saints. Fantasy Projection: 25 yards rushing 6 receptions for 55 yards potentially 1 TD.

As the only WR on the Giants Sterling Shepard had a fantastic game in week 10 grabbing 11 passes for 142 yards. Eli looked Shepard’s way frequently and often in this game and he will continue to do so in week 11. Shepard much like Tevin Coleman above is an extremely talented player who has had trouble shining in the shadow of OBJ. Now that he is the main target in the passing game he is meeting if not exceeding all expectations. This Giants offense is in shambles, but with the amount of volume Shepard is getting he can continue to put up fantasy matchup winning numbers. This week Shepard takes on the KC Chiefs who are 5th worst against receivers based on receiving yards allowed per game. I expect Shepard will stay hot this week while Eli makes every attempt to keep up with Alex Smith. Fantasy Projection: 10 receptions 85 yards receiving 1 TD

Holy Adam Thielen!! In week 10 Adam Thielen exploded with 8 catches for 166 yards and 1 TD…if you played Thielen you were very very happy… if you played against him ehhh not so much. Thielen has looked amazing this year and has proved to be a huge target for Case Keenum. This week Thielen takes on the LA Rams who are 24 th best against receivers which is why I don’t have Thielen ranked higher than 12th this week. I still expect Thielen to break away from the secondary and put up a solid WR1 game for fantasy owners. Fantasy Projection: 7 receptions 75 yards 1 TD

Tight Ends
  1. Travis Kelce, KC TE at NYG
  2. Rob Gronkowski, NE TE at OAK
  3. Zach Ertz, PHI TE at DAL
  4. Evan Engram, NYG TE vs. KC
  5. Jimmy Graham, SEA TE vs. ATL
  6. Jared Cook, OAK TE vs. NE
  7. Vernon Davis, WAS TE at NO
  8. Kyle Rudolph, MIN TE vs. LAR
  9. Delanie Walker, TEN TE at PIT
  10. Cameron Brate, TB TE at MIA
  11. Tyler Kroft, CIN TE at DEN
  12. Charles Clay, BUF TE at LAC

Jared Cook has been a pleasant surprise at a TE position that has been lacking in talent for fantasy player to exploit. Cook has had games of over 100 receiving yards twice this season including in week 9 prior to his week 10 bye. I expect Cook will continue to provide fantasy upside at TE against the New England Patriots who are the worst in the league against receivers based on yards per game. Look for another big game from Cook this week. Fantasy Projection: 6 receptions 73 yards
