• Daniel Jones, Giants v. Redskins … The rookie gets a favorable matchup in his second start. Washington has two sacks on the season and is giving up a completion on 78.3% of passes (worst in the NFL)
  • Kyle Allen, Panthers @ Texans … This game has shoot out potential and teams have been attacking Houston’s defensive backs, who have been giving up 28 completed passes (worst in the NFL) and 300 yards per game (sixth worst in the NFL) through three weeks

Running Backs…

  • Wayne Gallman Jr., Giants v. Redskins … With Saquon Barkley sideline with an ankle injury Gallman is in line to start
  • Darrel Williams, Chief @ Lions … Buy any Andy Ried running back
  • Justin Jackson, Chargers @ Dolphins… Garbage time upside
  • Tony Pollard, Cowboys @ Saints … Dallas has potential for positive game script against New Orleans, who have been giving up 99 yards a game on the ground

Wide Receivers…

  • Parris Campbell, Colts v. Raiders … the speedy rookie should see the start against the Oakland secondary which has been struggling to defend the pass
  • Phillip Dorsett, Patriots @ Bills … Buffalo’s secondary is formidable but they have given up 16 receptions a game to wide receivers (second worst in the NFL) and Dorsett, who’s played 75% of the snaps in New England, is in line to see more targets
  • Cody Latimer, Giants v. Redskins … Latimer sat last week in Daniel Jones’ debut but he’s been the Giants #2 WR all season and he should have plenty of opportunity against Washington. If he’s not healthy, pivot to Bennie Folwer III or rookie Darius Slayton
  • Devin Smith, Cowboys @ Saints … Smith has been targeted deep down the field and the New Orleans is giving up 17.3 yards per catch (second worst in the NFL)

Tight Ends…

  • Will Dissly, Seahawks @ Cardinals … Arizona has been torched by tight ends so far this season giving up 5 touchdowns and 348 yard receiving
  • Vernon Davis, Redskins @ Giants … the ageless wonder should have an opportunity to catch a touchdown against the G-Men who neglect to cover the tight end
  • Jack Doyle, Colts v. Raiders … Doyle has out-snapped his counterpart Eric Ebron so far this season and he should see increased targets with T.Y. Hilton injured in a plus match up against the Raiders
  • Noah Fant, Broncos v. Jaguars … The athletic rookie has been on the field for 50% of Denver's snaps and Jacksonville has been giving up 5 catches and 71 yards a game to tight ends
