With Aaron Rodgers likely done for the rest of the fantasy season, Tom Brady is the clear top quarterback down the stretch… Matt Ryan is averaging just 12.4 fantasy points per game, but he should reward fantasy owners that stick with him against New England; I think this is the time to buy low on Matty Ice… Despite the poor start, Cam Newton is the overall QB5, and he finally had a breakout game on the ground against Philly; now, he will look to do the same against a depleted linebacker group for the Bears… Dak Prescott will have more on his plate with Ezekiel Elliott’s suspension kicking in… Even if he doesn’t run at less than 100%, Marcus Mariota needs to be in lineups against the Browns… Carson Wentz should have another impressive primetime performance against a banged-up secondary, and Kirk Cousins will look to match him… Alex Smith has a career 19:4 touchdown-interception ratio against Oakland… Everyone is beating Tampa Bay’s secondary right now, and Tyrod Taylor coming off a bye week is up next… Brett Hundley has the weapons and the talent, and now he gets his opportunity… Russell Wilson has a difficult matchup in New York this Sunday… Ben Roethlisberger has thrown an interception in every home game against the Bengals since 2012… Derek Carr is averaging 202.5 yards per game and has a 6:5 touchdown-interception against Kansas City… I wouldn’t trust Jameis Winston in lineups with an injured throwing shoulder.

Le’Veon Bell should get 30+ touches every week… Kareem Hunt has been held out of the end zone for three-straight games, but he will return soon enough… Jay Ajayi was held to 16 yards on 11 carries against the Jets in Week 3, but he should bounce back at home… Leonard Fournette (foot) is expected to be fine for Week 7, and he obviously needs to be in lineups… Denver’s elite defense should be more focused against the run after allowing over 100 rushing yards to the Giants, but Melvin Gordon is involved enough in the passing game to overcome it…  Mark Ingram looks like a solid RB1 with a heavy workload… Devonta Freeman and Tevin Coleman are both high-upside starts against New England on SNF… Adrian Peterson is back… Christian McCaffrey should be able to take advantage Chicago’s linebackers this week, and the Panthers might get him more involved as a runner with Jonathan Stewart struggling… I’m guessing Aaron Rodgers’ injury will give Ty Montgomery the upper hand in the backfield over Aaron Jones; both are RB2/FLEX options against New Orleans… DeMarco Murray is running hard, but he doesn’t look as fast as usual, which probably has something to do with his hamstring; Derrick Henry’s presence might actually be giving him reason to push through it, but they face a strong run defense of the Browns on Sunday… I think Joe Mixon will come out as “the guy” for Cincinnati coming off the bye… Jerick McKinnon has performed much better, but the Vikings still want to get Latavius Murray going… It might be best to sit both Alfred Morris and Darren McFadden to see how things go in the first game without Zeke… Dion Lewis has looked like New England’s best runner recently, but Mike Gillislee is still expected to get most of the goal-line work, and James White remains the receiving back; besides the Super Bowl LI hero (White) in PPR leagues, all are risky.

The breakout for Julio Jones could be coming in the Super Bowl LI rematch, as the Patriots have been busting coverages all season… A.J. Green has had some monster games against Pittsburgh, and he should get a bunch of targets coming off the bye… Antonio Brown has gone over 100 yards just twice in 13 career games against the Bengals, and he’s been held to lines of 6/47/1, 7/87, 4/39, and 3/58 over the past two years, so he’s “only” third in the rankings…  Chris Hogan should bounce back against the Falcons in a should-be shootout, while Brandin Cooks could struggle, as Atlanta has given him more problems than anyone (34.4 yards per game); Danny Amendola (8/78/1 in Super Bowl LI) might actually be a better option in standard leagues this week… Jordy Nelson is no longer an elite WR1 with his quarterback out, but he should stay as a WR1… Demaryius Thomas could push for 15 targets with Emmanuel Sanders (ankle) out… Tyreek Hill is going to be difficult to contain for Oakland’s cornerbacks… John Brown caught 10 passes for 144 yards when he was healthy against the Rams last season; he looks healthy now… I think Amari Cooper will break out of his slump on Thursday night, partly because Michael Crabtree has been shutdown by the Chiefs, including 31 combined yards in two games last season… Sammy Watkins would get a big boost if Patrick Peterson (quad) sits or is limited… Terrelle Pryor left a lot of production on the field against the Eagles in the season opener, but he’s seemingly done that in every game since; he’s a high-risk, high-reward play with Josh Doctson on his heels… Some desperation options this week include Tyler Lockett, Bennie Fowler, and the aforementioned Doctson.

Rob Gronkowski looked pretty good last week… Zach Ertz has blown up the “Baby Gronk” tier of the rankings and now leads a new “Non-Gronk Elite” tier with Travis KelceJimmy Graham turned it on in recent weeks and needs to be in lineups against a New York team that has allowed seven tight end scores in 2017, including at least one per game… Delanie Walker should dominate Cleveland this week… Hunter Henry has at least 80 yards or a touchdown in every game he’s actually been targeted, and his role is finally stable… Austin Seferian-Jenkins should have had two touchdowns last week; he’s been a great pickup for fantasy owners… Cameron Brate has another difficult matchup, but he’s producing nonetheless… Evan Engram will probably be the focus of Seattle’s defense this week, but he’s really all Eli Manning has at this point…  Besides a game with nine catches for 129 yards and two touchdowns in 2015, Jordan Reed has had almost no success against Philadelphia… George Kittle is a decent streaming option in a game that San Francisco will likely have to score points.
