Tom Brady, QB, New England Patriots
Usually Brady is a consistent top 5 fantasy quarterback and this year he has been the farthest thing from it.  Finally against the Steelers Brady had over 400 yards passing and 4 touchdown passes.  Having the bye week to allow him to get more in sync with his receivers should help, even against a very good Panther defense.

Steve Smith, WR, Carolina Panthers
The Panthers are up against the Patriots in the Monday night game this week.  Smith has not been a very productive fantasy receiver this year, but the Patriots have a weak secondary.  The play action pass game against the Patriots, could only benefit Smith.

Lamar Miller, RB, Miami Dolphins
Miller had a very tough game Monday night against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers, but that will change this week for fantasy owners.  The Dolphins are up against the 20th best rush defense in the NFL, the San Diego Chargers.  They are allowing over 4.5 yards per carry by an opponents running back.

Chris Ivory, RB, New York Jets
The Buffalo Bills are the 22nd best ranked rush defense in the NFL this year, and the Jets are committed to the run game right now.  Geno Smith being under center needs a good running game to allow the rest of the offense to open up.  This is a favorable matchup for Ivory and the Jets, especially if the Jets establish a run game early.

DaSean Jackson, WR, Philadelphia Eagles
Nick Foles and DaSean Jackson obviously have great chemistry together and they are playing a below average secondary in the Washington Redskins this week.  Even if Jackson does not get a lot of passes thrown his way, he will still put up a good amount of receiving yards because Foles loves to throw him the deep ball.

Colin Kaepernick, QB, San Francisco 49ers
A week after having a tough game against the Carolina Panthers, Kaepernick and the 49ers play the New Orleans Saints.  The Saints defense is only allowing 200 yards passing by opposing quarterbacks look for Kaepernick to struggle again this week.

Keenan Allen, WR, San Diego Chargers
The Chargers face the Miami Dolphins this week in a very difficult matchup for Allen.  The Dolphins have a very aggressive and young secondary that has not allowed much production from opposing receivers.  Look for Allen to take a fantasy drop in points this week.

C.J. Spiller, RB, Buffalo Bills
The New York Jets are letting up the least amount of rushing yards per game this year, less than 75 yards.  Spiller has not been a consistent fantasy running back option, and has disappointed a lot of owners.  Do not expect a lot out of Spiller this week especially playing against the Jets.

Marvin Jones, WR, Cincinnati Bengals
Andy Dalton has struggled the past couple of weeks, and when he is struggling he likes to target AJ Green.  What this means, when Dalton struggles, so will Marvin Jones production.  After the 4-touchdown performance, he has had a game of 66 and 2 receiving yards.  This will be another down week for Jones, so he should be on your bench.
