Fantasy Breakdown: I believe we have a tier of three to kick off the fantasy quarterback position–Josh Allen, Kyler Murray, and Patrick Mahomes. Allen and Murray will affect their matchups with their arm and legs, and I believe this is a ‘get right’ spot for the Chiefs and Mahomes on Monday Night Football. The Sunday Night game between the Cowboys and Vikings is also highly intriguing. Expect plenty of points scored in this matchup–fire up both Dak Prescott and Kirk Cousins.


1) Derrick Henry, Tennessee at Indianapolis
2) Dalvin Cook, Minnesota vs. Dallas
3) Austin Ekeler, Los Angeles Chargers vs. New England
4) Alvin Kamara, New Orleans vs. Tampa Bay
5) Najee Harris, Pittsburgh at Cleveland

7) D’Andre Swift, Detroit vs. Philadelphia
8) Jonathan Taylor, Indianapolis at Tennessee
9) Ezekiel Elliott, Dallas at Minnesota
10) Aaron Jones, Green Bay at Arizona
11) Joe Mixon, Cincinnati at New York Jets
12) James Robinson, Jacksonville at Seattle
13) Cordarrelle Patterson, Atlanta vs. Carolina
14) Kenneth Gainwell, Philadelphia at Detroit
15) Damien Harris, New England at Los Angeles Chargers
16) Leonard Fourette, Tampa Bay at New Orleans
17) Elijah Mitchell, San Francisco at Chicago
18) Nick Chubb, Cleveland vs. Pittsburgh
19) Chuba Hubbard, Carolina at Atlanta
20) Antonio Gibson, Washington at Denver
21) Zack Moss, Buffalo vs. Miami
22) Khalil Herbert, Chicago vs. San Francisco
23) Darrel Williams, Kansas City vs. New York Giants
24) Chase Edmonds, Arizona vs. Green Bay
25) Devontae Booker, New York Giants at Kansas City

Fantasy Breakdown: Derrick Henry is the RB1–you can write it down in sharpie. There will be fantasy managers shying away from Alvin Kamara against the Buccaneers imposing defensive front this weekend. Trust Kamara–his involvement as a pass-catcher out of the backfield keeps him in the top-five range. Kenneth Gainwell will put up RB1 type numbers against the Detroit Lions defense.


1) Cooper Kupp, Los Angeles Rams at Houston
2) Tyreek Hill, Kansas City vs. New York Giants
3) Justin Jefferson, Minnesota vs. Dallas
4) Stefon Diggs, Buffalo vs. Miami
5) A.J. Brown, Tennessee at Indianapolis
6) DJ Moore, Carolina at Atlanta
7) Ja’Marr Chase, Cincinnati at New York Jets
8) DeAndre Hopkins, Arizona vs. Green Bay
9) Deebo Samuel, San Francisco at Chicago
10) Mike Williams, Los Angeles Chargers vs. New England
11) Calvin Ridley, Atlanta vs. Carolina
12) CeeDee Lamb, Dallas at Minnesota
13) Keenan Allen, Los Angeles Chargers vs. New England
14) Diontae Johnson, Pittsburgh at Cleveland
15) DK Metcalf, Seattle vs. Jacksonville
16) Adam Thielen, Minnesota vs. Dallas
17) Terry McLaurin, Washington at Denver
18) Amari Cooper, Dallas at Minnesota
19) Mike Evans, Tampa Bay at New Orleans
20) Chris Godwin, Tampa Bay at New Orleans
21) Antonio Brown, Tampa Bay at New Orleans
22) Tee Higgins, Cincinnati at New York Jets
23) Michael Pittman Jr., Indianapolis vs. Tennessee
24) Robert Woods, Los Angeles Rams at Houston
25) Emmanuel Sanders, Buffalo vs. Miami

Fantasy Breakdown: With Davante Adams likely missing Thursday Night’s game against the Cardinals, the top spot at the position becomes Cooper Kupp’s. Kupp has been sensational all season long, and Houston will have no answer for him. I believe the bye week was right on time for the Los Angeles Chargers. I expect both Mike Williams and Keenan Allen to put up WR1 numbers against New England on Sunday.


1) Travis Kelce, Kansas City vs. New York Giants
2) Kyle Pitts, Atlanta vs. Carolina
3) T.J. Hockenson, Detroit vs. Philadelphia
4) Tyler Higbee, Los Angeles Rams at Houston
5) Noah Fant, Denver vs. Washington
6) Dallas Goedert, Philadelphia at Detroit
7) Dalton Schultz, Dallas at Minnesota
8) Zach Ertz, Arizona vs. Green Bay
9) Mike Gesicki, Miami at Buffalo
10) Hunter Henry, New England at Los Angeles Chargers

Fantasy Breakdown: Kyle Pitts has pushed himself into the top three tight-end positions moving forward. The hype is real. The Houston Texans are dead last in the NFL against the tight end position–welcome to Tyler Higbee week.
