The Jets just got lit up by Bills QB Kyle Orton. Smith's turn to do the same.

13. Eli Manning - New York Giants: vs Indianapolis

Murray is facing the best defense against RB's for a second straight week.

11. Ben Tate - Cleveland Browns: vs Tampa Bay
Another great match-up but Tate couldn't even average 2 yards per carry against Oakland.

16. Jeremy Hill - Cincinnati Bengals: vs Jacksonville
Bernard likely out but the Jags are allowing the 5th fewest points to RB's the last four weeks.

17. Chris Ivory - New York Jets: @ Kansas City
Tough match-up but Ivory is the only chance the Jets have at moving the ball.

23. Jerick McKinnon - Minnesota Vikings: vs Washington
In 2014, Washington gives up the 3rd fewest fantasy points to RB's.

It should be tough sledding for McFadden in Seattle.

26. Charles Sims - Tampa Bay Buccaneers: @ Cleveland
The Bucs could unleash Sims this Sunday against a weak Browns run defense.

27. Knile Davis - Kansas City Chiefs: vs New York Jets
Davis should see 10-15 touches spelling RB Jamaal Charles.

29. Lorenzo Taliaferro - Baltimore Ravens: @ Pittsburgh
Taliaferro rushed for two scores last Sunday.

30. Darren Sproles - Philadelphia Eagles: @ Houston
Said that he was going to play this week. Boom or bust.

Gray won't have much room to run this week against Denver.

32. Isaiah Crowell - Cleveland Browns: vs Tampa Bay
He was the 3rd RB for the Browns this past week but he could score and it's a good match-up.

8. Dwayne Allen - Indianapolis Colts: @ New York Giants
Allen has scored in every game but two in 2014 after scoring again last week.

Davis hasn't scored since Week 1 and only had 30 yards against the Rams in Week 6.

11. Zach Ertz - Philadelphia Eagles: @ Houston

2014 Fantasy Football: Week 9 DST Rankings

1. Cincinnati Bengals: vs Jacksonville
Cincy at home and up against the brutal Jaguars offense.

2. Kansas City Chiefs: vs New York Jets
It doesn't matter who the QB is for the Jets; they'll turn it over.

3. San Francisco 49ers: vs St. Louis
The 49ers defense generated 5 sacks and took an INT to the house in Week 6 against St. Louis.

4. Cleveland Browns: vs Tampa Bay
Playing at home and the Bucs are a joke offensively.

5. Seattle Seahawks: vs Oakland
Trap game for Seattle at home but they should dominate.

6. Minnesota Vikings: vs Washington
Good match-up and the defense is playing well under Mike Zimmer.

7. Washington Redskins: @ Minnesota
They'll blitz and maybe force QB Teddy Bridgewater into mistakes.

8. San Diego Chargers: @ Miami
Miami's offense has been up and down this season.

9. Arizona Cardinals: @ Dallas
Arizona blitzes a ton and Dallas couldn't handle the blitz on MNF.

The top defense/special teams in fantasy going against Houston QB Ryan Fitzpatrick.

11. Baltimore Ravens: @ Pittsburgh
Baltimore's defense held the Steelers in check during Week 2.

12. Indianapolis Colts: @ New York Giants
Don't know which defense will show up for the Colts and also don't know which offense will show up for the Giants.

13. Miami Dolphins: vs San Diego
They are at home, their secondary is good and they have a good pass rush.

14. Houston Texans: vs Philadelphia
Eagles QB Nick Foles hasn't been too good so they have a chance despite being outmatched.

15. St. Louis Rams: @ San Francisco
The Rams defense probably won't do much but the 49ers do give up the 8th most points.

* I won't be ranking kickers. Just pick a kicker with a good offense or a kicker that is going against a terrible team.

Flacco threw it 62 times for 345 yards, a TD and an INT during Week 1 against the Bengals.

The potential is there for Forte to run all over the Patriots defense.

2. Le'Veon Bell - Pittsburgh Steelers: vs Indianapolis
Bell is averaging 5.1 yards per carry this season and he'll get another 20 touches.

3. Arian Foster - Houston Texans: @ Tennessee
Produced 85 total yards and a TD last season on them in Week 2.

4. Marshawn Lynch - Seattle Seahawks: @ Carolina
Just 2.5 yards per carry against them last season but Panthers run defense is terrible in 2014.

5. DeMarco Murray - Dallas Cowboys: vs Washington
Best RB in fantasy facing the best defense against RB's in fantasy.

6. Ben Tate - Cleveland Browns: vs Oakland
Tate should bounce back against Oakland who can't stop the run.

7. Lamar Miller - Miami Dolphins: @ Jacksonville
Miller has scored in the last three games and he should do well against the Jaguars.

8. Jamaal Charles - Kansas City Chiefs: vs St. Louis

11. Jerick McKinnon - Minnesota Vikings: @ Tampa Bay
McKinnon rushed for over 100 yards against a very good Bills run defense last Sunday.

12. Ahmad Bradshaw - Indianapolis Colts: @ Pittsburgh
He's a receiving touchdown machine.

13. Joique Bell - Detroit Lions: @ Atlanta
Bell should come close to 20 total touches and the Falcons have allowed 5 more rushing scores than any other team.

14. Eddie Lacy - Green Bay Packers: @ New Orleans
Lacy hasn't been given over 17 carries in a game this season but a good match-up.

15. Darren McFadden - Oakland Raiders: @ Cleveland

Vereen registered 114 total yards and two receiving TD's last Thursday.

20. Giovani Bernard - Cincinnati Bengals: vs Baltimore
Bernard produced 110 total yards in Week 1 against the Ravens.

21. Doug Martin - Tampa Bay Buccaneers: vs Minnesota
If Martin can't get going against the Vikings then he is pretty useless in fantasy.

22. Alfred Morris - Washington Redskins: @ Dallas
Morris averaged 20 carries for 84.5 yards and a TD against a hapless Cowboys defense in 2013.

23. Mark Ingram - New Orleans Saints: vs Green Bay
The Packers struggle stopping the run and Ingram should get 15 carries.

24. Tre Mason - St. Louis Rams: @ Kansas City
Mason has likely taken over as the Rams starting RB but the Chiefs are tough.

25. Denard Robinson - Jacksonville Jaguars: vs Miami
Robinson recorded 22 carries for 127 yards and a TD last week.

26. Bishop Sankey - Tennessee Titans: vs Houston
Decent match-up and he's getting better.

28. Theo Riddick - Detroit Lions: @ Atlanta
RB Reggie Bush likely out and the Falcons allow the most fantasy points.

I think Brown will be the main back in Buffalo over RB Anthony Dixon.

Oakland gives up the 2nd most fantasy points to RB's this season.

31. Chris Ivory - New York Jets: vs Buffalo
Buffalo gives up the 2nd fewest fantasy points to RB's.

Gray looks to have taken over Stevan Ridley's role for now.

Jackson won't do anything except maybe score which is a long shot.

In 2014, Baltimore allows the 3rd fewest fantasy points to RB's.

6. Jeremy Maclin - Philadelphia Eagles: @ Arizona
Cardinals CB Patrick Peterson will be covering him but they give up the 5th most points.

7. Julio Jones - Atlanta Falcons: vs Detroit

Indy gives up the fewest fantasy points to opposing WR's.

10. Sammy Watkins - Buffalo Bills: @ New York Jets
Watkins had 122 yards and 2 TD's last Sunday. The Jets are an easier match-up.

36. James Jones - Oakland Raiders: @ Cleveland

37. Cecil Shorts - Jacksonville Jaguars: vs Miami
Miami has a great secondary but at least Shorts will get targeted plenty.

38. Brandin Cooks - New Orleans Saints: vs Green Bay
The Packers give up the 13th fewest points to WR's. Cooks due to score soon.

39. Justin Hunter - Tennessee Titans: vs Houston
Hunter and rookie QB Zach Mettenberger were on the same page back in the preseason.

2014 Fantasy Football: Week 8 TE Rankings

1. Greg Olsen - Carolina Panthers: vs Seattle
Olsen recorded a season high 105 yards last week and the Seahawks allow the most TD's to TE's.

2. Rob Gronkowski - New England Patriots: vs Chicago
Decent match-up and he's averaged 10 targets the last 3 weeks as QB Tom Brady has been great.

3. Julius Thomas - Denver Broncos: vs San Diego
Good chance to get back in the scoring column this week but San Diego is the 2nd best against TE's.

4. Antonio Gates - San Diego Chargers: @ Denver
Gates scored four times in all of 2013. He has scored four times in the last three games.

5. Martellus Bennett - Chicago Bears: @ New England
Last week marked the 4th straight week he didn't score. Still, he's been targeted at least 8 times in every game but one.

6. Jordan Reed - Washington Redskins: @ Dallas
Decent game Sunday with 5 catches for 54 yards. Dallas allows 2nd most points.

7. Jimmy Graham - New Orleans Saints: vs Green Bay
Graham was obviously favoring his shoulder last Sunday and didn't catch anything.

8. Zach Ertz - Philadelphia Eagles: @ Arizona
Ertz had a TD in his last game and the Cardinals are still bad at covering TE's.

9. Dwayne Allen - Indianapolis Colts: @ Pittsburgh
Allen has scored in five of seven games and Pittsburgh is a favorable match-up.

10. Delanie Walker - Tennessee Titans: vs Houston
Walker hauled in a season low two catches for 17 yards last week and Houston gives up 7th fewest points.

11. Jordan Cameron - Cleveland Browns: vs Oakland
Targeted 6 times but only caught one for 5 yards last week.

12. Travis Kelce - Kansas City Chiefs: vs St. Louis
Had his worst fantasy performance this past week but should bounce back against the Rams.

13. Jared Cook - St. Louis Rams: @ Kansas City
Cook is in the Top 10 among TE's in receiving yards (320) but just hasn't found the endzone.

14. Jason Witten - Dallas Cowboys: vs Washington
Witten totaled 40 yards receiving in the two games facing Washington last season.

15. Charles Clay - Miami Dolphins: @ Jacksonville
Jacksonville gives up the 6th most points and Clay produced a 4/58/1 stat line against Chicago.

17. Scott Chandler - Buffalo Bills: @ New York Jets

Nice match-up for Miller as Indy allows the 11th most points to TE's this year.

19. Jace Amaro - New York Jets: vs Buffalo
Amaro should see a good amount of targets and could score.

20. Crockett Gillmore - Baltimore Ravens: @ Cincinnati
TE Owen Daniels is out and the Bengals give up the most points to TE's.

2014 Fantasy Football: Week 8 DST Rankings

1. Miami Dolphins: @ Jacksonville
The Dolphins defense is pretty good and the Jags offense is pretty bad.

2. Detroit Lions: @ Atlanta
Detroit will feast on Falcons QB Matt Ryan and his terrible offensive line.

3. Buffalo Bills: @ New York Jets
The Bills lead the NFL with 24 sacks which isn't good for Jets QB Geno Smith.

4. Kansas City Chiefs: vs St. Louis
Kansas City playing at home against a team that allows the 2nd most points to defenses.

5. Houston Texans: @ Tennessee
Houston forces turnovers and OLB Jadeveon Clowney could be back.

6. Dallas Cowboys: vs Washington
Whether its QB Robert Griffin or good ole QB Colt McCoy; the Cowboys should dominate.

7. New England Patriots: vs Chicago
The Patriots are banged up on defense but Bears QB Jay Cutler is still one of the best at blowing games.

8. Cleveland Browns: vs Oakland
Not a great match-up even though they are playing a rookie QB at home.

9. Tampa Bay Buccaneers: vs Minnesota
Vikings QB Teddy Bridgewater has thrown for just 345 yards the past two games along with 5 INT's.

10. Minnesota Vikings: @ Tampa Bay
The Bucs offensive line isn't any good and neither are most of their offensive "weapons".

11. New York Jets: vs Buffalo
Jets defense at home facing QB Kyle Orton and some back-up RB's.

12. Indianapolis Colts: @ Pittsburgh
Indy just shut out the Bengals last Sunday and Big Ben gets sacked quite often.

13. Seattle Seahawks: @ Carolina
Seattle's defense has been a waste of a pick for many fantasy players.

14. Baltimore Ravens: @ Cincinnati
Baltimore's defense couldn't do anything in Week 1 against the Bengals but Cincy was just shut out.

15. Arizona Cardinals: vs Philadelphia
They only have 7 sacks this season but they should be pretty stout at home against the Eagles.

* I won't be ranking kickers. Just pick a kicker with a good offense or a kicker that is going against a terrible team.
