Big-Time Performers This WeekQBs
There's no quarterback hotter right now than Russell Wilson. He gets the Browns at home, a team that has allowed multiple passing touchdowns in five of their last six games. Carson Palmeris having an MVP-like season, along with Cam Newton. Both have favorable matchups this weekend. I also think Matthew Staffordis going to have a field day as he faces the worst fantasy team when it comes to giving up points to quarterbacks, the Saints.
Doug Martinwill have a favorable matchup this week in the Rams, who allow 21 fantasy points per game to opposing running backs.Chris Ivory also will face a team that struggles against fantasy running backs,Dallas. The Cowboys rank 27th in fantasy points allowed to opposing running backs. Sticking withDeAngelo Williams **who has totaled at least 17 fantasy points in three straight games, despite him going up against a great Broncos' defense.
WRsOdell Beckham, Jr.That is all. I'm big on Larry Fitzgeraldthis week as he faces a terrible Eagles' fantasy defense. I also like Calvin Johnson against a soft Saints' secondary and Demaryius Thomas against the Steelers, who have a bottom-five pass defense.TEsGreg Olsen gets to face the Giants, who rank 30th in fantasy points allowed to opposing tight ends. Julius Thomashas a favorable matchup against a struggling Falcons' group. Rob Gronkowski. I don't have to say too much about him.
I know the Steelers' offense is soaring, but the Broncoshave the best defense in football. The Seahawks'defense will feast on the Browns' offense. The Jaguars' defense should have a solid outing against a bad Falcons' team.
Photos from the last matchup vs the Bengals at Paul Brown Stadium on December 13th, 2015.
Ben Roethlisberger has been great all season when he's played. But he hasn't faced a defense as good as Denver's in quite some time. Not big onEli Manning this week, despite his big game from last week as he faces the undefeated Panthers.Derek Carr looks like he has a favorable matchup against Green Bay, but Carr has struggled as of late.RBs* Don't be fooled byDevonta Freeman *this week against the Jaguars. He hasn't totaled more than 47 yards in his last five games.Todd Gurleyrebounded last week, but this week he faces a tough Buccaneers rush defense.LeSean McCoy**, like his team, is done.
I don't like Ben Roethlisberger this week, therefore I don't like Antonio Brown. Denver's defense is that good. Brandon Marshallwill face a top-five fantasy pass defense in Dallas. A.J. Greenwill have A.J. McCarronthrowing him the ball this week. I can't trust either one.
TEsGary Barnidgewon't have enough opportunities against Seattle. Delanie Walkerhas a bad matchup this week against a tough New England defense. The same goes for Jason Wittenas he faces the Jets.Defense/Special Teams
TheSteelers' defense has been solid against the run, but their pass defense is bottom-five in the league. Avoid the Eagles'group this week, along with the Rams.
