Brady led an impressive game-winning drive to beat the Saints, but it was another pedestrian day for his fantasy owners. I don't like his chances against a Jets defense that is surrendering just 6.7 YPA this year.
Ridley may have saved his season against the Saints, running for 96 yards and two scores on 20 carries. He draws a very tough assignment this week.
Bolden was targeted just three times last week. Given that he's really only a weapon in the passing game, he'll need a whole lot more than that to be a factor.
Blount ran for nine yards on seven carries last week, taking a backseat to Stevan Ridley. His fantasy usefulness may prove short-lived.
Edelman had 11 targets last week, and could be a volume champion again with Amendola out. He's a worthy WR4 this week.
Thompkins caught his fourth touchdown of the season last week, and is slowly becoming a favorite of Tom Brady's in the red zone.
Dobson could be in for an uptick in targets with Danny Amendola back on the shelf. He could be dangerous in this offense if he could hold on to the ball.
Gronkowski makes his much-awaited return to the field this week. Given all the time it has taken him to get back, I don't think the usual caveats for guys coming off injury apply here. Get him in your lineup.
Gostkowski made all three of his field goal attempts last week, including one from 54 yards out. He's 16-for-17 on the year and second in fantasy scoring among kickers.
The Patriots shut down Drew Brees, limiting him to 236 yards and 6.6 YPA and picking him off twice. After a game like that against one of the league's best, you have to like this matchup for them, even without Jerod Mayo, who's out for the year.
Smith followed up his best day as a pro with potentially his worst one, throwing for just 201 yards and two interceptions. This is another bad matchup for the rookie.
Powell is a clear winner in the fallout from Mike Goodson's injury. That will be on display against the Patriots.
Ivory could be in for more touches now that Mike Goodson is out for the year, but not enough to make him relevant to fantasy owners.
Hill looked more like himself last week, though he only caught three passes for 46 yards. New England has been solid against the pass this year, so this is not the week to get Hill in your lineup.
Kerley caught just two of his seven targets for 19 yards. He's the No. 1 option in this offense, but it's hard to be even remotely confident in him this week.
Cumberland caught four of his five targets for 59 yards and is slowing morphing into the kind of tight end you could trust for a week or two.
Folk remained perfect on field goals this year by hitting both of his attempts last week. He has knocked through all 13 tries.
The Jets did a respectable job limiting the Steelers to 16 points, but they failed to register a takeaway. They're a middle of the pack fantasy unit this week.
