vs
Carolina Panthers
Sun Life Stadium | Sunday, Nov. 24 | 1 PM EST (FOX)

Carolina Panthers

    1. Cam Newton
    2. Cam
      Newton
      QB
    3. PASS YDS239
    4. PASS TD1
    5. INT0
    6. RUSH YDS47
    7. RUSH TD0

    Newton led the Panthers to an impressive win over New England, throwing for 209 yards and three touchdowns while adding 62 yards on the ground. Even in a tough matchup, you want him in your lineup.

    1. DeAngelo Williams
    2. DeAngelo
      Williams
      RB
    3. RUSH YDS53
    4. RUSH TD0
    5. REC YDS24
    6. REC TD0

    The Dolphins allow the fourth-most fantasy points per game to running backs, but the timeshare in Carolina really hurts Williams' prospects.

    1. Jonathan Stewart
    2. Jonathan
      Stewart
      RB
    3. RUSH YDS33
    4. RUSH TD0
    5. REC YDS0
    6. REC TD0

    While the Dolphins have been terrible against the run, it's hard to trust Stewart in a timeshare like the one in which he finds himself.

    1. Mike Tolbert
    2. Mike
      Tolbert
      RB
    3. RUSH YDS24
    4. RUSH TD0
    5. REC YDS10
    6. REC TD0

    Tolbert got six carries last week, but there are too many mouths to feed in this backfield to consider him in fantasy leagues.

    1. Steve Smith
    2. Steve
      Smith
      WR
    3. REC YDS77
    4. REC TD0

    Smith is a WR3 at best against a Miami defense that allows the third-fewest fantasy points per game to receivers.

    1. Brandon LaFell
    2. Brandon
      LaFell
      WR
    3. REC YDS36
    4. REC TD0

    LaFell had seven catches for 59 yards and a touchdown last week. He should not be considered against a Miami team that allows the third-fewest fantasy points per game to receivers.

    1. Ted Ginn Jr.
    2. Ted
      Ginn Jr.
      WR
    3. REC YDS16
    4. REC TD0

    Ginn had the game-winning touchdown last week, but it was his only catch of the game.

    1. Greg Olsen
    2. Greg
      Olsen
      TE
    3. REC YDS68
    4. REC TD1

    Olsen had 52 yards and a score last week, and should be universally started against a Miami team that allows the fourth-most fantasy points per game to tight ends.

    1. Graham Gano
    2. Graham
      Gano
      K
    3. PAT1
    4. FG3

    Gano made his only field-goal attempt last week and is 14-for-15 on the season.

    1. Carolina Panthers
    2. PTS ALLOWED17
    3. SACKS6
    4. INT2
    5. TD0

    The Panthers must be started against a Miami team that has allowed the most sacks this season.

Miami Dolphins

    1. Ryan Tannehill
    2. Ryan
      Tannehill
      QB
    3. PASS YDS245
    4. PASS TD2
    5. INT2
    6. RUSH YDS0
    7. RUSH TD0

    Tannehill had a so-so game in a great matchup with the Chargers last week. He cannot be considered against a defense like Carolina's.

    1. Lamar Miller
    2. Lamar
      Miller
      RB
    3. RUSH YDS37
    4. RUSH TD0
    5. REC YDS22
    6. REC TD0

    Miller got just four carries for 17 yards last week. Meanwhile, Daniel Thomas had 10 carries for 57 yards and a score.

    1. Daniel Thomas
    2. Daniel
      Thomas
      RB
    3. RUSH YDS22
    4. RUSH TD0
    5. REC YDS0
    6. REC TD0

    Thomas had 10 carries for 57 yards and a score last week, but he should not be considered against a Carolina defense allowing the seventh-fewest fantasy points per game to running backs.

    1. Rishard Matthews
    2. Rishard
      Matthews
      WR
    3. REC YDS49
    4. REC TD1

    Matthews caught four of his six targets for 52 yards last week. You can't consider a fringe guy like this against the Panthers.

    1. Mike Wallace
    2. Mike
      Wallace
      WR
    3. REC YDS60
    4. REC TD0

    Wallace had four catches for 39 yards last week, a stat line that has become all too common for him this year.

    1. Brian Hartline
    2. Brian
      Hartline
      WR
    3. REC YDS58
    4. REC TD0

    Hartline is Mr. Reliable. He has had between four and six receptions for 55 to 70 yards in six games this season.

    1. Charles Clay
    2. Charles
      Clay
      TE
    3. REC YDS53
    4. REC TD1

    Clay had six catches for 90 yards and a score last week. He's a low-end TE1 this week.

    1. Caleb Sturgis
    2. Caleb
      Sturgis
      K
    3. PAT2
    4. FG1

    Sturgis made both of his field goal-attempts last week and is now 17-for-22 on the season.

    1. Miami Dolphins
    2. PTS ALLOWED16
    3. SACKS3
    4. INT0
    5. TD0

    The Dolphins have a good pass defense but shouldn't be trusted against a team that runs the ball like Carolina. Miami has allowed the fourth-most fantasy points per game to running backs.
