Sleeper: Jameis Winston

As bad as the Buccaneers may be, Jameis Winston is providing steady fantasy production so far this year. Winston hasn’t posted less than 17 fantasy points per game this year, which makes him a solid QB2 this year. Against a bad Giants pass defense that just got torched by the Saints, I think Winston is a solid sleeper play this week.

Don’t Trust: Blake Bortles

Although Blake Bortles has been a QB1 so far this season, the Jets have a great secondary. This will be tough matchup for Bortles, who might not even chase points because of the injuries to the Jets’ quarterbacks. I have Bortles as a QB2 this week due to the matchup, so you may want to find a replacement.

  2. Todd Gurley
  3. Chris Ivory

  50. Taiwan Jones

Sleeper: Ronnie Hillman

After great performances from both Ronnie Hillman and C.J. Anderson, the Broncos seem to re-discovered their run game that has been so productive in the past. Hillman is the number one option in denver, so he should defintely be trusted as a RB2 against an overrated Colts defense. Hillman will be a red zone option for Denver and should be started in most leagues.

Don’t Trust: T.J. Yeldon

As much of a T.J. Yeldon fan as I am, I just don’t love the situation that he is currently in. For starters, Yeldon will be going up against a great run defense in the Jets. Also, it seems that Toby Gerhart is getting some of the goal line touches for some unknown reason. Yeldon will be a RB2 for most of the season, but this week he shouldn’t be talked up.

Wide Receivers 

  1. Julio Jones
  2. Antonio Brown
  3. Odell Beckham Jr.
  4. A.J. Green
  5. Alshon Jeffrey
  6. Brandon Marshall
  7. Dez Bryant
  8. Demaryius Thomas
  9. Julian Edelman
  10. Amari Cooper
  11. Martavis Bryant
  12. Eric Decker
  13. Emmanuel Sanders
  14. Jarvis Landry
  15. Mike Evans
  16. Allen Robinson
  17. Michael Crabtree
  18. Randall Cobb
  19. Stevie Johnson
  20. Stefon Diggs
  21. Willie Snead
  22. Donte Moncrief
  23. T.Y. Hilton
  24. Brandin Cooks
  25. Allen Hurns
  26. Pierre Garcon
  27. James Jones
  28. Travis Benjamin
  29. Rishard Matthews
  30. Kendall Wright
  31. Marquess Wilson

  46. Dwayne Harris
  47. Roddy White
  48. Marques Colston
  49. Rueben Randle
  50. Dorial Green-Beckham

Sleeper: Stevie Johnson

Being a Keenan Allen fanboy, I am extremly disappointed with his season ending injury. But, there’s always room for someone to step up, and I believe it’s Stevie Johnson’s time now. Johnson is avergaing 6 targets a game this year, but with Allen’s injury that number should rise. I have Johnson as a WR2 for this week, but it’s deffintely a risky play. One of the more boom or bust guys for this week.

Don’t Trust: T.Y. Hilton

Is it me, or does T.Y. Hilton feel like a complete bust this year? Hilton is currently ranked 18th in wide receivers this season, and this week it doesn’t get much better. Hilton and the Colts will be going up one of the best deffenses in the league in the Denver Broncos. I wouldn’t trust Hilton this week in daily leagues while also being avoided in week to week leagues if possible.

Tight Ends

  1. Rob Gronkowski
  2. Greg Olsen
  3. Tyler Eifert
  4. Jordan Reed
  5. Gary Barnidge
  6. Charles Clay
  7. Julius Thomas
  8. Martellus Bennett
  9. Delanie Walker
  10. Antonio Gates
  11. Ben Watson
  12. Heath Miller
  13. Austin Sefarian-Jenkins
  14. Vernon Davis
  15. Jordan Cameron
  16. Jason Witten
  17. Zach Ertz
  18. Kyle Rudolph
  19. Richard Rodgers
  20. Jacob Tamme
  21. Coby Fleener
  22. Brent Celek
  23. Dwayne Allen
  24. Ladarius Green
  25. Clive Walford

Sleeper: Austin Sefarian-Jenkins

If he can get healthy, Sefarian-Jenkins is a great option in most leagues. Sefarian-Jenkins would fill a huge hole that was caused by Vincent Jackson’s recent injury. With Winston starting to perform better week in and week out, Sefarian-Jenkins is approaching the TE1 category.

Don’t Trust: Jason Witten

The Dallas Cowboys are getting worse, but the return of Dez Bryant will hurt others in the Dallas offense for fantasy. Witten will be a huge benefactor of this, even possibly becoming droppable. Matt Cassel is having problems at quarterback, and Bryant taking those targets just add to it. Witten is defintely bust material until Tony Romo is back.
