Ryan Tannehill (TEN) – Tannehill has a 6:4 TD to INT ratio this season, but he has also ran for two TDs. This week he faces a KC defense that is currently allowing 29 points per game.

Sam Darnold (CAR) – Darnold is going against a NY Giants defense that has allowed 14 passing TDs this season. Not to mention he’s ran for five TDs as well. I think Darnold bounces back this week.

Tua Tagovailoa (MIA) – Tua had a good return from IR last week and now gets an ATL defense that ranks near the bottom of the league in defense. He’s fighting for his future in Miami at this point. so we should see a hungry Tua.

Mike Davis (ATL) – Davis has been in competition in the backfield but has still averaged 15 touches per game. MIA is giving up a whopping 26 points per game to RBs.

James Conner (AZ) – Conner has averaged 53 yards in three out of the last four games. With a matchup against HOU, the Cardinals will probably be blowing them out and running the ball more to kill time. Not to mention HOU is giving up 120 rushing yards and a TD to RBs.

Myles Gaskin (MIA) – Myles has only reached 25 yards twice this year. However, this week he gets an ATL defense that’s 27th in DVOA.

Deebo Samuel (SF) – Deebo has averaged 10 touches per game in this explosive year for him. With Jimmy Garoppolo back (they’ve had a great connection all season) and the fact that Indianapolis is giving up the sixth most fantasy points to WRs, I like Deebo in this Sunday night matchup.

Jakobi Meyers (NE) – Jakobi has yet to score a TD since being drafted by the Patriots, but I think this is the week he finally get’s it against a lowly Jets defense.

Allen Robinson (CHI) – A-Rob has had a down season thus far, yet in still he gets a favorable matchup against a TB secondary that is injured and has already given up three 100-yard outings to receivers this season.

Dallas Goedert (PHI) – Dallas is now the man in Philly with Ertz gone. He’s primed to get an abundance of targets, and the LV defense has given up four TDs in the past three games to TEs.

Zach Ertz (AZ) – As previously mentioned, Ertz has shed the feathers of one bird only to become another. The Texans are giving up the most fantasy points to TEs this season, so look for Ertz to make a splash in his Cardinals debut. Going from Hurts to Murray under center is also a huge difference.

Jonnu Smith (NE) – Jonnu will get a Jets defense that ranks 23rd in pass DVOA.



Sony Michel (LAR) – Sony has averaged about 10 carries over the past few games and with the Rams likely to be up early, he should continue to see a lot of touches this week. The Lions defense is also giving up the most fantasy points to RBs this season.

Russell Gage (ATL) – Gage is coming back after missing the past three games and he gets a MIA defense possibly without Jones and Howard in the secondary. The Dolphins are also giving up the fourth-most fantasy points to WRs.

Darrell Williams (KC) – Williams will get the start again with CEH out another week. He has a favorable matchup against a TEN defense this is susceptible to the run.

Another week down and another week of sleepers that just might help you win your week! Hope this helps you out and as always have fun and good luck with your matchups.
