Fantasy Start ’em
Baker Maygield vs. Cin – Mayfield has been the Browns best QB in a loooooong time. Last time the Browns played the Bengals in Cincinnati, Mayfield threw for 4 touchdowns. I like his chances of a repeat performance at home.
Chris Carson vs KC – Last week Carson was heavily involved in the Seahawks offensive plan. He touched the ball 28 times for 148 yards and a touchdown. I expect the Seahawks to try to keep the electric Patrick Mahomes off the field as much as they can. They’re going to do that with a heavy dose of Chris Carson.
Amari Cooper vs TB– Cooper’s last 4 weeks alternate between a top fantasy performance, and a mediocre day. Last week against Indy he had a mediocre day, so I expect a top fantasy performance in a game Dallas really wants to win.
Jared Cook vs Den – Cook continues to see a good amount of work in the Oakland offense. With at least 5 targets in his last 3 games, and the fact that the Broncos defense can be beaten by the tight end position, Cook has a good week.
Fantasy Sit ’em
Jared Goff @ Ari – Goff has been abysmal the last two weeks. Throwing 6 interceptions and not a single touchdown. This week the Rams travel to Arizona, and the Cardinals have been pretty good against the pass this year, especially at home.
Adrian Peterson @ Ten – Peterson hasn’t really done anything since his 90 yard touchdown 3 weeks ago. Besides that 1 run, his last three games look like this: 27 rushes, 75 yards, 0 touchdowns. Against a stiff Tennessee run defense, he’s on my bench.
Kenny Golladay vs Min – I’m sticking with Golladay on my Sit ’em. Last week’s performance won’t happen this week. Minnesota has allowed only 11 catches and 101 yards to opposing wide receivers in their last 2 games.
Vance McDonald @ NO – McDonald’s targets are constantly getting taken by Jesse James. Against a good Saints defense I think McDonald has a quiet week.
