The future first ballot Hall of Famer has thrown for over 300 yards in every game. He's the best player in the league thus far. Coming out of the bye, expect Manning to go nuts against the winless Rams.
He's gotten in the end zone four times this year, but is not even averaging 50 yards a game and is splitting carries with Don Brown. He did catch 10 passes for 53 yards against the Titans and will continue to catch passes with an average WR group and Peyton spreading the ball out the way he does. He's a No. 3 fantasy RB.
Brown got outplayed by Addai against the Titans. Still, he's a viable No. 3 fantasy RB on such a potent offense. If Addai gets dinged, watch out. The sky is the limit for Brown as a potential No. 1 RB stud.
Ho hum, 6 catches for 60 yards and 1 TD against the Titans. Yawn. Wayne's manner stays the same no matter what riddles opposing defenses throw at him. Despite the bye, he's 5th in yards, 7th in catches and 2nd in rec TDs. Must start.
'Garcon! I'll take a bottle of a Week 5, 1-catch, 7-yard performance.' Lucky Pierre, made so much better by his all-world QB, had his worst week yet against the Titans. He's a No. 3 fantasy WR who could have a huge week any given Sunday but will go down in value the minute Anthony Gonzalez steps back on the field.
Collie didn't dog it on the way to his impressive 8 catch, 97-yard, 2 TD game against the Titans. He's had a slight edge over Garcon the last two games and is a No. 3 fantasy WR. He is a starting option because of this offense.
The Colts D has played very well the last few games against Arizona, Seattle and the Titans. Expect more of the same against the Rams. They are ranked 2nd in the league in points allowed (7th in YPG) and will feast on the impotent Rams' unit.
Bulger sat out two games before last week and came back to have his best game of the year against the Jaguars, going 22/34 for 213 yards, 1 TD and 1 INT. That Jags' pass defense is not very good, and the Indy secondary is. Bulger is not a recommended option, even as a flex or bye week option.
S-Jax went for only 50 yards on 16 carries against the Jags but sweetened the pot with a team high 6 catches for 78 yards. Despite having yet to reach pay dirt with no TDs on the year, Jackson is fourth in the league in rushing yards. He's a No.1 option because of the lack of true, every down horses in the NFL. He is their offense.
The Rams leading WR left the Jags' game with a hip injury after scoring his team's only offensive TD. He wasn't a very worthwhile fantasy options when completely healthy, and merits zero consideration as an injury risk.
Even though defensive end C.J. Ah You has the best name in the league, this 30th ranked unit is not a fantasy option. Ah, you'd be better off starting the prison guards that played against Adam Sandler in The Longest Yard.
