Each week in this space I will review players who are ranked outside the top 10 for Qb's and Te's and top 20 for Wr's in the weekly ESPN rankings on who I think will flourish and who will disappoint this upcoming week. I do not review those ranked higher since they are probably highly drafted and unable to be benched especially with the lack of depth a RB. Last week was another bad week, I went 6-3 in the Play them and 4-4 in the Bench them. We have our 4th bye week with the Saints and Raiders being off. Let’s get to this week;
Nick Foles (12) – He had another great week and gets the awful Cowboys pass defense, ride the wave<>
Ryan Tannehill (16) – The Bills defense also has issues against the pass and this is a nice bye week fill in if you have Brees.
Joseph Randle (20)- The Cowboys have no real options plus the Eagles leaku defense should make this a ncie start for 1 week.
Brandon Jacobs (27) – The Vikings are one of the worst defenses against the run, the fountain of youth continues.
Mike Wallace (20) -The Bills are a bottom 5 pass defense against receivers.
Keenan Allen (23) – I expect a bit of a closer game which should mean a lot of targets go his way.
Alshon Jeffrey (24)- Another great matchup versus the awful Redskins defense.
Kyle Rudolph (12)- The Giants are the worst team fantasy wise defending tight ends.
Matt Ryan (10) – No White, Jones or Jackson plus a top 5 pass defense, no thanks.
Tom Brady (11) – Even with Gronk back, he gets a very tough Jets defense on the road.
Chris Johnson (21)- Greene is coming back and they have the 49ers defense, he cannot be in any lineups this week.
Bilal Powell (24) – Goodson did get hurt but he is still in a job share, Pats continue to play tough run defense.
Zac Stacy (25) He did pretty well against the bottom run defenses in the NFL bit now gets a top 5 one, the train stops here.
Torrey Smith (20)- He has an awful history versus the Steelers plus Flacco has been awful on the road as well.
Julian Edelman (25) – They get Gronk back plus the Jets defense makes him a bit player on Sunday.
Harry Douglas (27) – He has never down well as a starter and now as the top receiver target, xpect the stingy Bucs defense to take him out of the game.
Greg Olsen (10)- He has been in a walking boot and the Rams have been stout against tight ends.
