  • 61. Danny Woodhead, (RB No. 16) RB, Ravens. Bye: 8.

    Woodhead will likely be heavily targeted as the Bengals' defensive backs should be able to contain Wallace and Maclin. A touchdown would be icing on the cake, but the cake should be filled with receptions at the very least.

  • 62. Tom Savage, (QB No. 29) QB, Texans. Bye: 9.

  • 63. DeAndre Hopkins, (WR No. 17) WR, Texans. Bye: 9.




  • 64. Lamar Miller, (RB No. 17) RB, Texans. Bye: 9.

    Miller could be better off with Tom Savage at quarterback, but it's not a big enough upgrade to cause me to feel good about him in a tough matchup. Miller should get enough work to be a RB2, but has a floor that I don't love.

  • 65. Delanie Walker, (TE No. 2) TE, Titans. Bye: 13.

    Walker may be getting up there in age, but he gets a great matchup against Oakland's poor tight end defense in a game with the highest over/under of the weekend.

  • 66. Demaryius Thomas, (WR No. 18) WR, Broncos. Bye: 11.


  • 67. Bilal Powell, (RB No. 18) RB, Jets. Bye: 11.

    I'd feel better about this if Matt Forte wasn't practicing in full, but Powell is the best player the Jets have on offense, and he should be used both as a runner and receiver throughout the game.

  • 68. Allen Robinson, (WR No. 19) WR, Jaguars. Bye: 5.

  • 69. Brandon Marshall, (WR No. 20) WR, Giants. Bye: 8.

    If OBJ isn't 100 percent, Marshall could be the de facto No. 1 receiver and push his upside up to top-10 proportions.


  • 70. Golden Tate, (WR No. 21) WR, Lions. Bye: 10.

    Tate might have trouble picking up big yardage and touchdowns, but he should be the Lions' best chance at keeping the chains moving.

  • 71. Martavis Bryant, (WR No. 22) WR, Steelers. Bye: 8.

  • 72. Tyreek Hill, (WR No. 23) WR, Chiefs. Bye: 5.

    Belichick will likely do his best to take Hill out of this game. Hill's ability to take any touch to the house makes him a high-risk/upside start, and I would have a hard time sitting him unless you are absolutely stacked at wide receiver.


  • 73. Ty Montgomery, (RB No. 19) RB, Packers. Bye: 4.

    This is not a good matchup, but Montgomery can do work in both the rushing and receiving game, and has enough ability to be a must start when healthy.

  • 74. Greg Olsen, (TE No. 3) TE, Panthers. Bye: 7.

    The 49ers don't have the personnel to stop many offenses, and Olsen is still the most trusted receiver on the team.

  • 75. Alshon Jeffery, (WR No. 24) WR, Eagles. Bye: 4.

    Jeffery will match up with Josh Norman in this game, which isn't an impossible task, but not the easiest either.
