Sit 'em

 

Dez Bryant WR Cowboys 

I know it's hard to sit one of your top receivers but Bryant's status for Sunday against the Falcons is up in the air due to a sore knee and an ankle injury. If he is able to play against Atlanta, Bryant still won’t be 100% against a defense that is actually allowed the 5th fewest yards to opposing WRs. 

Kirk Cousins QB Redskins 

Washington managed to pull out a win in Seattle last week but their offensive line looked horrible.  The Redskins won't have any easier of a go this Sunday with the Vikings coming to town. Minnesota's defense has only allowed 5 passing TDs this season and has 24 sacks with 7 interceptions. Hopefully you have a QB on your roster with a better match-up; If you do not, I would start searching the waiver wire. 

CJ Anderson RB Broncos 

Denver is hosting a New England team this week whose defense ranks among the worst in the NFL, but the Patriots offense is still producing. Brady and the boys should come off a bye week firing on all cylinders, which means the Broncos will likely play catch-up most of the game. That should limit their run game and Anderson's productivity.  

 

Start 'em

 

Orleans Darkwa RB Giants 

The fourth year running back out of Tulane (Roll Wave) managed to run for 71 yards on 16 carries against a stout Rams defense last week. He has amassed 292 yards and a touchdown on 54 carries over the last 4 games.  Since QB Eli Manning is struggling, the Gmen's best bet would be to stick with the run game.

​Darkwa sqaures off against a 49ers ‘D’ in week 10 that is giving up 135.7 yards on the ground per game. That ranks dead last in the NFL. 

 

Tyler Kroft TE Bengals 

While filling in for the injured Tyler Eifert, Kroft caught three touchdowns over the past five games. He also notched an impressive 79 yard performance against the Jaguars, who own the best pass defense in the NFL.

The Bengals take on the Titans this week, who are allowing 5 catches and 55 receiving yards per game to opposing tight ends.

 

Chicago Bears defense 

The Bears offense isn't anything special, but their defense is legit. They have racked up 23 sacks and seven fumble recoveries this year. 

They host the Packers who are clearly not the same without Aaron Rodgers; and have lost all three contests since he broke his collarbone. If Chicago happens to be out there on your waiver wire, grab them.
