I'm stacking with the Texans this week. Hoyer is dirt cheap and played well coming off the bench on a short week against the Colts. Houston also has the fantasy benefit of having two players that receive the vast majority of the touches with Foster and Hopkins.
LeSean McCoy is probably to return, and Buffalo needs him. A heavy workload should be his against the Bengals who are a plus match-up for running backs. I expect his usage to be low too in tournaments.
I believe Edelman and Moncrief offer the best value among the players on the field Sunday night.
How Antonio Gates is only $5,500 after his monster season debut I'll never know, but he's a must play for me this week.
Eagles kickers have always scored big points when Chip Kelly's offense is moving. Let's see if Philadelphia can put too good games together back-to-back.
The Jets defense comes off a bye against Washington. I don't see how those receivers will have success against the Jets secondary. That also means more defenders can be stacked in the box to stop Alfred Morris and Matt Jones. Great, great match-up.
