Player Pos Team Opponent Start/Sit Comment
Duke Johnson RB CLE ATL START It seems, Cleveland's new leadership has discovered Duke Johnson's skills in the passing game. Atlanta is one of the most vulnerable teams to the pass catching back. Look for Duke to provide another startable week.
Isaiah Crowell RB NYJ BUF START Buffalo tends to do a good job against opposing passers, but is vulnerable in the run game. Since Buffalo's offense also has a problem scoring, opposing teams won't be forced into an up tempo / passing oriented approach if running the ball is working. This all points to an Isaiah Crowell game.
Kerryon Johnson RB DET CHI SIT Chicago's ranked second vs opposing running backs in fantasy points allowed. Johnson will face a tough matchup here. However, Chicago's ranked 16th vs the QB and 21st vs the WR which should play to Detroit's former strength. If Detroit uses Stafford and his receivers more, that could minimize Johnson's role in the game plan especially with Riddick back in the fold.
Mark Ingram RB NO CIN START Ingram hasn't been very trustworthy of late. Cincincinnati lost AJ Green for this matchup and will likely struggle keeping up with the Saints. That could put New Orleans in a positive game script which will set up more carries for Ingram. The Bengals rank 28th vs opposing running backs which will play to Ingram's strengths.
Aaron Jones RB GB MIA START Jones looks to have the snap share of the primary back now that Montgomery is gone. His use in the passing game is still diminished, however. Therefore his ceiling isn't what you'd like. However, Miami is a great matchup for the opposing running back and Jones has a good chance at a TD in this one.
Larry Fitzgerald WR ARI KC START Coming off a BYE, Arizona gets KC. They will need to do all they can to keep up with KC's offense. That will help to give Fitz and Kirk a higher floor.
Christian Kirk WR ARI KC START  
Marquez Valdes-Scantling WR GB MIA START MVS looks like the real thing. Without Allison, MVS has been second only to Adams in snaps. If he can get enough targets, he should put in a startable week. Miami's top CB will give Adams his attention making it more attractive to allow MVS some action.
