Quarterback - Blake Bortles, Jaguars - The Jaguars will face the Ravens this weekend, a team that is allowing plenty of fantasy points to opposing quarterbacks this year. Add in that Bortles has been hot over the past few fantasy weeks, and this should be a starter on your roster this week.

Running back - James Starks, Packers - Starks is seeing more carries than Lacy the last few weeks, and that appears to be the new standard for the Packers. He is averaging 4.3 yards per carry, compared to Lacy's 3.7 yards per attempt. The Packers are facing the Lions this week, who are allowing the third most rushing yards per game this year, and have allowed a league high 14 rushing touchdowns this season. Starks will thrive in this environment.

Wide receiver - DeSean Jackson, Redskins - Jackson returned to the Redskins last week against the Patriots, but only caught three passes for 15 yards. He was targeted six times, however, and, now that the rust has been knocked off, he should be able to put up some bigger numbers. The Saints will likely focus on taking away tight end Jordan Reed, which should help Jackson's production.

Tight End - Jordan Reed, Redskins - The Saints may be focusing on taking away Reed, but that does not mean they will be able to do it. New Orleans is allowing the second-most fantasy points to tight ends in the league this year, which makes it a good week to start Kirk Cousins' top receiving option.


Quarterback - Russell Wilson, Seahawks - The Cardinals have been tough on opposing quarterbacks this year, averaging around 15 points allowed all season. That is what Wilson will be facing this week, and they way Seattle has played this year, I do not think he will be much above that number.

Running back - Chris Johnson, Cardinals - The Seahawks defense shuts down opposing running backs. They do not allow rushing touchdowns, having only given up three so far this year, and are only allowing 98.5 rushing yards a game. This does not look like the game to keep CJ in your lineup.

Wide receiver - Dorial Green-Beckham, Titans - The Panthers have allowed one 100-yard receiving performance this year and DGB does not look like he will be able to break that streak. Josh Norman will probably be matched up against Green-Beckham all day, and the cornerback has the advantage over DGB in that matchup.

Tight End - Julius Thomas, Jaguars - Despite liking Bortles this week, Thomas is going up against a Ravens defense that does not allow fantasy points to tight ends. Thomas does not put up consistent stats, and that is always a dangerous option in fantasy. Probably time to bench Thomas and wait for him to get a couple of weeks of solid performances together.
