RB

Jeremy Hill, DEN (67%, 13) – Has three games with over 20 carries and has at least 148 yards in all of the them. The Bengals should be giving him the ball 20+ times per game the rest of the way.

Joique Bell, @CHI (66%, 13) – Has solidified the RB1 job in Detroit and should have a field day against a bad Bears D.

Tre Mason, NYG (61%, 14) – It’s been two bad games in a row for Mason, but he faced two of the better run defenses in the league the last two weeks. Mason should bounce back against a Giants D that gives up the 6th most fantasy points to RBs.

Daniel Herron, @DAL (38%, 11) – Is still much better than Trent Richardson and should get enough touches for 10+ fantasy points even if he doesn’t score.

Matt Asiata, @MIA (17%, 11) – Watch his health since he didn’t practice today, but if healthy Asiata should get 20+ touches this week. He’s not going to do much with those carries, but could have a big day if the Vikings are inside the 5 yard line a couple times.

Golden Tate, @CHI (67%, 13) – Bears secondary routinely gives up 10 yard cushions. Tate should be open all day.

DeAndre Hopkins, BAL (62%, 12) – Questionable, so a bit of a health risk, but the Ravens have one of the worst secondaries in the league. QB Case Keenum is a concern, but he showed flashes of competency last year and I think Hopkins will have a big day if he’s on the field.

Kenny Stills, ATL (49%, 11) – He’s been inconsistent but the Falcons are one of the best matchups out there and Brees is coming off a flawless performance last week. It’s a hunch, but I think Stills catches a deep score this week.

Jordan Matthews, @WAS (42%, 10) – Ballsy play after his goose egg last week, but Matthews would have been a sure thing start @WAS just a week ago. Don’t let one bad game keep him out of your lineup.

Jarvis Landry, MIN (27%, 9) – Anyone that can catch 8 passes for 99 yards on Darrell Revis is worth a start in my book.

Charles Johnson, @MIA (17%, 10) – Teddy Bridgewater is looking like a legitimate NFL QB lately and Johnson has been his go-to target.

TE

Martellus Bennett, DET (71%, 10) – With Jimmy Clausen at QB I expect plenty of dump-off passes to Forte and Bennett.

Travis Kelce, @PIT (57%, 10) – The Steelers are in the bottom half of the league in fantasy points allowed to TEs and Kelce has averaged 7.5 targets per game over the last two.

Delanie Walker, @JAX (49%, 9) – Looked healthy last week (93 yards) and the Jags have struggled at times to cover TEs (10th most fantasy points allowed).
