Denver at Atlanta
The now healthy Broncos offense visits the Falcons in a game that could turn into a shootout early. With a gunslinger under-center for each offense and a pair of exploitable defenses, this should be a great matchup for fantasy football purposes.
✔ Starts: Drew Lock, Matt Ryan, Melvin Gordon, Todd Gurley, Jerry Jeudy, Hayden Hurst, Noah Fant
✘ Sits: Russell Gage, Philip Lindsey
Seattle at Buffalo (3CoSports Game of the Week)
In a potential Super Bowl preview, two of the NFL’s best offenses take aim at each other in what should be a slugfest. This game could ultimately decide the NFL MVP race as well. With Chris Carson questionable, be prepared to pivot to DeeJay Dallas once again.
✔ Starts: Zack Moss, Greg Olsen, John Brown, Cole Beasley, DeeJay Dallas
✘ Sits: Devin Singletary, Travis Homer
Baltimore at Indianapolis
Two of the league’s top defenses lock horns in a game that could decide Indy’s playoff fate. This isn’t a great game for anyone who went Colts or Ravens heavy in their stacking.
✔ Starts: Marquise Brown, Nyheim Hines
✘ Sits: Philip Rivers, Jack Doyle, T.Y Hilton, Michael Pittman, J.K Dobbins, Gus Edwards
Houston at Jacksonville
Rookie Jake Luton faces a Texans defense that is eager to turn things around. This game could get ugly fast.
✔ Starts: David Johnson, Will Fuller, Brandin Cooks, Laviska Shenault
✘ Sits: Jake Luton, Keelan Cole
Carolina at Kansas City
CMC vs. Patrick Mahomes in the battle of the best fantasy assets for dynasty formats.
✔ Starts: Robby Anderson, Mecole Hardman, Le’Veon Bell
✘ Sits: Teddy Bridgewater, Mike Davis
Detroit at Minnesota
The Vikings will look to take advantage of the Kenny Golladay-less Lions, who may also be without QB Matthew Stafford.
✔ Starts: D’Andre Swift, Adrian Peterson, Marvin Jones
✘ Sits: Chase Daniel, Kirk Cousins
Chicago at Tennessee
Following two losses, one to the lowly Bengals, this is a great “get right” game for Tennessee, who should gain momentum by beating a playoff contender like the Bears at home.
✔ Starts: David Montgomery, Darnell Mooney, Corey Davis, Jonnu Smith
✘ Sits: Anthony Miller, Nick Foles
New York Giants at Washington
✔ Starts: Antonio Gibson, Sterling Shepherd
✘ Sits: Everyone Else
Las Vegas at Los Angeles Chargers
There’s a decent chance that one of these clubs will be the 7 seed in the AFC. This game should go a long way towards determining that race.
✔ Starts: Justin Herbert, Derek Carr, Justin Jackson, Mike Williams
✘ Sits: Henry Ruggs
Miami at Arizona
Tua Tagovailoa will have a chance to redeem himself following a rough debut, as the Dolphins look to dethrone another NFC West contender.
✔ Starts: DeVante Parker, Christian Kirk, Chase Edmonds
✘ Sits: Tua Tagovailoa, Pat Laird, Mike Gesicki
Pittsburgh at Dallas
✔ Starts: Everyone on Pittsburgh
✘ Sits: Everyone on Dallas
New Orleans at Tampa Bay
Antonio Brown return game.
✔ Starts: Antonio Brown, Rob Gronkowski, Jared Cook, Emmanuel Sanders
✘ Sits: Ronald Jones, Leonard Fournette, Latavius Murray
