SIT: Running Back, Tevin Coleman – Running Back
Minnesota’s defense has been a nightmare for fantasy players starting against them. Coleman has yet to break 100-yards in his two starts, but has producing in the end zone. Don’t expect those score saving touchdowns this weekend. Freeman is back, and the Vikings are tough.
START: Running Back, Alvin Kamara – New Orleans Saints
The Panthers have held fantasy football running backs in check for much of the season. However, they have a tendency to allow big plays to quicker backs. Kamara is quick.
SLEEPER: Wide Receiver, DeSean Jackson – Tampa Bay Buccaneers
Jackson has had more catches in his last four games with Ryan Fitzpatrick at quarterback than he did with Winston starting in his first five. While the starting quarterback is returning to the field this week, he’s been watching the whole time. Look for Winston and Jackson to capitalize on some things he found with Fitzpatrick.
SIT: Quarterback, Marcus Mariota – Tennessee Titans
Mariota has thrown six interceptions in the last two games. Four coming against the Colts. Houston’s defense is much better than Indianapolis’.
START: Quarterback, Blake Bortles – Jacksonville Jaguars
In Week 7 in Indianapolis, Bortles threw for over 300-yards, one score and no interceptions. This time he gets them at home. If he played the Colts every week he’d be a Hall of Famer.
SLEEPER: Houston Texans Defense
There was a line in a football movie once about someone panicking and another guy intending to take advantage. The panicking guy is Tennessee’s Marcus Mariota. Houston’s defense is the other guy.
