Bulger was 14/26 with 140 yards, 0 TDs and 2 INTs against the Colts last week. He's just not good at this point in his career. Bulger is not a recommended option, though against the 30th ranked pass defense, he merits consideration as a flex or bye week option.
S-Jax went for 134 yards on 23 carries against the Colts. Despite having yet to reach pay dirt with no TDs on the year, Jackson is 3rd in the league in rushing yards (635 yards) and this was his third 100 yard game. He's a No.1 option- a legit every down horse in the NFL. He is their offense and he's bound to get into the end zone sooner than later, likely against the 20th ranked run D, to help propel the Rams to their first win.
The Rams leading WR had 2 catches for 58 yards against the Colts. He hurt his ribs and shoulder in the game and seems to have been dinged up all year long. He's no more than a low end No. 3 option when completely healthy, and merits zero consideration as an injury risk.
Hailed by Peter King in MMQ as a Wes Welker-type WR, expect Amendola to be targeted more and more each week, especially in light of Avery's injury problems. He's not an advisable option yet, but definitely monitor this up and comer's progress.
Leading tackler against the Colts, C.J. Ah You has the best name in the league, but this 30th ranked unit (YPG) is not a fantasy option. Ah, you could potentially do worse against the toothless Lions, but they're still not an advisable start.
With 3 TDs and 6 INTs on the year, Stafford is an inadvisable option against anybody. He didn't play before the bye and has been practicing gingerly this week. He may not go against the Rams. Daunte Culpepper and Drew Stanton are also inadvisable starts if he can't go.
Who'd have thought that Silent Bob would be a starting NFL running back? Averaging about 82 total yards a game, Smith has been the Lions best offensive weapon this season. Smith is a No. 2 option against the league's 30th ranked YPG defense.
‘Megatron' sat out with a knee injury against the Packers before the bye. He's one of the top talents in the league, and if he plays, should start just because of his big play potential. Monitor the injury situation leading up to game time with this big time No. 2 fantasy WR.
The highly touted rook was held without a catch against Green Bay, but is a better start against St. Louis' underperforming D that has allowed TD receptions already this year to TEs Dallas Clark, Visanthe Shiancoe, Vernon Davis and John Carlson. Consider him a No. 2 fantasy TE and adequate bye week replacement.
