START: CARSON WENTZ VS. COWBOYS
He’s remained under the radar in some leagues and yet he’s been very consistent this year. He missed the first two games and came back with a semi-decent performance in Week 3, but since then has been on a tear. I’ve seen him on the bench in some of my leagues so if he’s on your team unless you have an incredible matchup, I’d start him against them ‘Boys.
BUST ALERT: ALEX SMITH @ BUCS
Alex has a dream matchup against a horrendous Bucs secondary so it seems like an easy plugin this week. Problem is, Redskins offensive line has been getting hit hard with injuries. He’s also without one of his best wide receivers in Paul Richardson. It’s a good matchup but don’t be surprised if it doesn’t turn out as well as it may seem due to the injury bug hitting the Skins really hard lately.

Sleepers: Nick Mullens vs. Giants & Baker Mayfield vs. Falcons
START: DUKE JOHNSON VS. FALCONS
Duke came off a strong performance against KC with 9 catches and found the end zone twice. The Falcons are the most generous team by allowing the most catches to running backs (68) so I expect Duke to once again have a solid outing. He’s a must-start option in PPR league and is definitely a Flex play in non-PPR as well.

BUST ALERT: DERRICK HENRY VS. PATRIOTS
He’s been a huge let down this year but the last two weeks he’s finished with double-digit points. I would use caution on expecting him to hit those numbers again this week. This is more of a Dion Lewis type of game. Avoid Henry if ya can.

Sleepers: Ito Smith @ Browns & Elijah McGuire vs. Bills
START: TYLER BOYD VS. SAINTS
With AJ Green out, he’s an absolute must-start in all leagues. In a game against a high flying offense in Saints (now with newly acquired Dez Bryant) the Bengals will need to keep up by throwing it a ton. Boyd is their best receiving option and I won’t be surprised if he surpasses 10 targets in this game.

BUST ALERT: JORDY NELSON VS. CHARGERS
Still hoping for the old school Jordy Nelson type of numbers isn’t going to be too comforting. Seems very logical that his production had a shot of skyrocketing with the departure of Amari Cooper but it’s not reasonable. Chargers defense has been great all season and I’m not a big believer on Carr. So much so, I dropped Nelson in a few leagues I was holding onto him in.
Jordy Nelson fantasy analysis:
Pros: Number 1 wide reviever for the Raiders
Cons: Number 1 wide reciever for the Raiders

Sleepers: Marquez Valdes Scantling vs. Dolphins & Larry Fitzgerald @ Chiefs
START: JACK DOYLE VS. JAGUARS
It’s argumentative of course, but Doyle is pretty much the WR #2 on the Colts. Ebron has been feasting all year but I still love Doyle in this matchup coming off a solid game after being out since week 2. Colts run tons of 2 tight end sets so both can eat so I feel 100% confident that Doyle still has a double-digit ceiling this week against the Jags.

BUST ALERT: TREY BURTON VS. LIONS
Last week he had a garbage time TD that saved his mediocre day. He’s only received 7 targets the past two games combined and this week, he’d need to once again find the end zone to have a productive week. Not fully turning away from him but not completely excited about his floor either. Proceed with caution.

Sleepers: Nick Vannett @ Rams & Chris Herndon vs. Bills
START: JETS VS. BILLS
Yup, the Bills are still being very generous to opposing defenses so why not continue to ride that wave? The Jets are at home and should be available on most of your league’s waiver wire.
The Jets defense is playing very well today. Great job here by Attaochu to get the sack#Jets pic.twitter.com/QJGEu8nzLl

BUST ALERT: BEARS VS. DETROIT
After coming off an incredible game at Buffalo, the Bears defense heads home to face the Lions. Despite the Lions not having Golden Tate, their offense is still much more explosive than the Bills and I would not be surprised if Chicago’s D/ST finishes with under 8 points this week.
Sleepers: Colts vs. Jaguars & Chiefs vs. Cardinals
START: MASON CROSBY VS. DOLPHINS
Dolphins are in the top 10 for most points allowed to fantasy kickers and the last home game the Packers played, Crosby had his best outing. This week Green Bay is once again at home and are favorites to pull out the win. He should be in line for a great game so I’d start him with confidence.

BUST ALERT: RANDY BULLOCK VS. SAINTS
Seems like a good fit since the Bengals will NEED to put up a whole lot of points keep up with the Saints but I’d avoid starting him if possible. The Saints haven’t allowed much FG work this year to opposing kickers. Kickers haven’t fared well against the Saints this year and I’m not too confident in Bullock being the one to break that streak this week.
Remember that time Randy Bullock missed a fg and then the Texans went to playoffs instead of Titans?
