WHO I LIKE

QB, Trevor Siemian (DEN) – Denver’s rookie quarterback stunned everyone by beating an always-tough Bengal’s defense at Cincinnati. The Broncos play a weak Tampa Bay secondary Sunday, so Siemian, who’s only owned in five percent of leagues, is a sweet waiver wire pickup.
RB, Le’Veon Bell (PIT) – Step aside DeAngelo Williams; Le’Veon Bell is back. After an MCL tear in 2015 and sitting a three-game suspension this season, Bell looks to continue to dominate the backfield. After a brutal loss to Philly, Pittsburgh will now be heavily relying on Bell.
WR, Mike Evans (TB) – Evans has now gone three straight weeks with a score, averaging 100 yards per game. Regardless of the Bronco’s defense this weekend, you have to start Jameis Winston’s favorite target.
TE, Kyle Rudolph (MIN) – A 3-0 start has the Vikings and Sam Bradford rolling this season. Rudolph’s chemistry with Bradford has resulted in two touchdowns thus far. He’ll look to score again against a banged-up Giants defense Monday night.

WHO I DON’T LIKE

QB, Ben Roethlisberger (PIT) – After an embarrassing outing with the Eagles, the Steelers now have to play a Chiefs secondary who picked off Ryan Fitzpatrick six times. Stay away from Big Ben this week if you can.
RB, Lamar Miller (HOU) – The former Miami Dolphin has had a heavy workload in Houston’s backfield, but he has yet to find the end zone. Osweiler turns to vertical threats in the red zone, making scoring chances for Miller limited these days.
WR, Allen Hurns (JAX) – Blake Bortles has lately only been targeting Allen Robinson and Julius Thomas, and Hurns has yet to find the end zone this season. Allen Hurns is a desperate flex this weekend.
D/ST, Carolina Panthers – After getting tromped by the Vikings last weekend, the Panthers defense has yet to find their groove since losing Josh Norman. Their weak cornerback situation against Matt Ryan and Julio Jones is an unfavorable matchup this week.

MY SLEEPERS

QB, Derek Carr (OAK) – Carr’s offensive consistency has gone very under the radar this season. With weapons like Amari Cooper and Michael Crabtree, this pass-heavy quarterback is a good start against Baltimore.
RB, Darren Sproles (PHI) – With the potential of Ryan Matthew’s missing extended time, this veteran running back can be considered a decent flex if he doesn’t have to share too many snaps. Sproles could see more action, but don’t count on him too much.
WR, DeVante Parker (MIA) – With 19 targets in the last two weeks from Ryan Tannehill, Parker looks to secure his role opposite Jarvis Landry. Start him against the flustered Bengals defense.
TE, Hunter Henry (SD) – Henry saw a lot of action with veteran Antonio Gates out with a hamstring injury. If Gate’s injury lingers into this weekend against the Saints, it’s a favorable matchup for the rookie.
