Brett:

I'm really liking a Tannehill/Landry stack this week against an underwhelming Titans defense. The Dolphins should have a new life after firing their dud of a head coach, and I'm excited to see what they can do.

At running back, I like pairing Blount with Lacy to give me two "closers" for good teams that should win by fairly comfortable margins. I'm hoping for lots of 4th quarter yardage from these two, and maybe even a touchdown.

Other than Landry, Larry Fitzgerald and DeAndre Hopkins are both good options at wideout. Hopkins has been tearing through virtually every corner he's faced so far this season, while Fitzgerald seemingly has been rejuvenated by an MVP-caliber season from Carson Palmer. It's not like the secondaries that both of them are facing this weekend are all that hot, either. I'm hoping for a couple TDs from them.

Julius Thomas will be facing a Texans defense with no good coverage linebackers and no good man-cover safeties. I like those odds, as painful as that is for me to write.

Gostkowski is the no-brainer play at kicker. The Pats are probably going to blow out the Colts, so I might as well hitch myself to that wagon.

The Jets are an interesting matchup with Washington. I think they are stout enough up front to stop their power run game, and the secondary with Revis, Cromartie, and Skrine is certainly good enough to give Kirk Cousins fits as well.

Ryan:

I admit this week I'm trying to something new, going big on tight end. I've never done that in any of my fantasy leagues, daily or otherwise. Gronkowski has six touchdowns in five career games versus Indianapolis.

The Ravens gave up 457 yards and two touchdowns to Josh McCown. It's Kaepernick's turn to torch the Ravens.

Arian Foster looked sharp against the Colts in the passing and running game. I'll be looking for his breakout game with extra rest. Theo Riddick has been a solid option out of the backfield for the Lions' passing attack.

I'm rolling the dice that Andrew Luck will be back this week, and that he and T.Y. Hilton will be on the same page. Apparently, I think the Lions are going to pick up their first win against the Bears this week.
