START: MITCHELL TRUBISKY VS. PATRIOTS
In a game where the Bears may be chasing points, Trubisky’s hot streak has a good opportunity to continue. The Patriots have given up an average of 23.4 fantasy points to opposing quarterbacks this season and with Trubisky scoring 9 touchdowns the past two games, feel safe plugging him in this week.
316 passing yards + 3 TD in a Week 6 loss.

BUST ALERT: DESHAUN WATSON VS. JAGUARS
It’s hard to completely fade Watson since he always has a high upside. This is a very possible bounce back game for the Jaguars defense at home. The Texans O-line has allowed 25 sacks against Watson this season and he could be under a whole lot of pressure by an angry Jags defensive pass rush.

Sleepers: Eli Manning @ Falcons vs. Joe Flacco vs. Saints
START: KERRYON JOHNSON VS. DOLPHINS
The Dolphins have been a starting magnet for opposing running backs since they have been getting torched on the ground and the air. After reports of Theo Riddick not practicing on Wednesday, there is real concern he may miss the game, and that’ll mean a greater workload for the best back in Detroit.

BUST ALERT: ISAIAH CROWELL VS. VIKINGS
As underperforming as the Vikings defense has been for fantasy owners, they have been very good against the run. They’ve only allowed one rushing touchdown from a running back all season. Crowell was incredible a few weeks ago, but he may be in for a rough outing this week on the road.
Need Isaiah Crowell to decide if he is a good or bad running back

Sleepers: Marlon Mack vs. Bills & Frank Gore vs. Lions
START: TAYLOR GABRIEL VS. PATRIOTS
The past two weeks he’s been solid, with 12 catches, 214 yards and two touchdowns. In a high scoring game total, and the Patriots likely trying to shut down Allen Robinson, Gabriel is a sneaky play.

BUST: COREY DAVIS VS. CHARGERS
The Titans offense has been rough the past few weeks and now they face a Chargers defense that is trending up. No other Titans receiver poses too much of a threat, so I can see him struggling on the road in London this week.
The Ravens had more sacks in this win than the Titans had pass completions. 11 to 10.

Sleepers: Jermaine Kearse vs. Vikings & Christian Kirk vs. Broncos
START: DAVID NJOKU VS. BUCS
Three straight double-digit games and now facing a Bucs defense that has been very favorable against tight ends this year puts Njoku in a GREAT spot this week.

BUST ALERT: BENJAMIN WATSON VS. RAVENS
The Ravens defense has been impressive all year, especially against quarterbacks and tight ends. Normally, I’m a fan of revenge games, but I can’t trust playing Watson this week.
Just wanna give a quick “fuck you” to Benjamin Watson for causing me to lose my fantasy football game this week by .05 points. Preciate it my guy.

Sleepers: Ricky Seals-Jones vs. Broncos & O.J. Howard vs. Browns
START: COLTS VS. BILLS
Anytime you can start a defense against the Bills, you definitely want to do it, especially when the starter is Derek Anderson. Yes folks, Derek Anderson gets the start with Josh Allen sidelined with an injury. This is an easy plug and play.

BUST ALERT: COWBOYS VS. REDSKINS
Cowboys held Blake Bortles and the Jaguars to only seven points last week, but on the road, they haven’t been the same. The Redskins have been generous to opposing defenses at home this season, and as much as I loved Dallas last week, I’m concerned about them this week.

Sleepers: Texans at Jaguars & Lions @ Dolphins
START: GREG ZUERLEIN @ 49ERS
He may still be on your waiver wire after missing the past few games with an injury. The Rams have one of the best offenses in the league, and in his first game back, Zuerlein can very well push double points for your fantasy team.
From Sean McVay today:
– K Greg Zuerlein is fully cleared to play
– WR Cooper Kupp (knee) officially has been ruled out
– OL Rodger Saffold (knee) remains on track to play
– New WR Nick Williams could be an option for the roster Sunday

BUST ALERT: RYAN SUCCOP VS CHARGERS
Succop has been one of the best fantasy kickers this year, but this is a game I’d look to start another kicker over him. The Titans likely will struggle to move the ball against the Chargers defense and he may disappoint fantasy owners who have been using him all year.
If you guys are struggling in fantasy just know I’ve had Mason Crosby and Ryan Succop these past two weeks…
