Orlando Ramirez-USA TODAY Sports

Quarterback

Jay Cutler CHI, owned in 7% of Yahoo leagues

Cutler returned to the Bears lineup and played very aggressive and angry. If you get a chance at a pissed off quarterback then take them. Cutler was able to lead his team to a lopsided victory over the Minnesota Vikings. This week he gets Tampa Bay, who have given up the 7th-most points to quarterbacks.

Case Keenum, LA, owned in 5% of Yahoo Leagues

Keenum had a tough outing against a Carolina defense that is improving each week. If you're in a pickle and need a bye-week gunslinger, give Keenum a try. He gets the Jets this week, who are giving up the 9th-most points to quarterbacks. The Jets' secondary is struggled as everyone is getting first-class treatment on "Revis-Island".

Running Back

James Starks, GB, owned in 18% of Yahoo Leagues

He's been sitting out for some time but now is looking to get back in the lineup at the perfect time. The Packers' offense has struggled without a running game and his face will be a welcome one. Starks has mainly made his stew being the change-of-pace runner but right now, the Packers just need someone that doesn't have WR or FB next to their names running the rock.

Rob Kelley, WAS, owned in 28% of Yahoo Leagues

Kelley has become the starter while the Redskins deal with some injuries and though Minnesota is on the schedule, I would give him a shot. Cousins likes to pass to his running backs too and Kelley has shown he can shoulder the load wherever they need him. He carved up the Bengals in London and the Vikings haven't been able to keep runners in check as of late.

Wide Receiver

Rishard Matthews, TEN,  owned in 29% of Yahoo Leagues

Matthews was on our list last week and he didn't disappoint with over 18 points. Matthews is a great play again with a matchup with the Packers, who are giving up the 9th-most points to receivers.

Adam Humphries, TB, owned in 19% of Yahoo Leagues

If you are looking for a shot to the arm of your receiving corps, this is your add of the week. Humphries has seen his targets and production rise in recent weeks. now, he gets a chance at the Chicago Bears, who are giving up the 4th-most points to receivers.

Tight End

Lance Kendricks, LA owned in 15% of Yahoo Leagues

He did not disappoint in a game with the Panthers, now he gets a chance with the Jets. New York is giving up the 8th-most points to tight ends and Kendricks is a must start this week.

Vance McDonald, SF, owned in 8% of Yahoo Leagues

McDonald was on the list last week and he makes it again after scoring almost 16 points this week. This is a league that is not seeing good tight end performances in fantasy unless they are Gronk. If you need a tight end, McDonald is about as good as it gets down the stretch.

Defense

Jacksonville Jaguars, owned in 2% of Yahoo Leagues

If you need a defense to stream this week, go with the Jags. They get a favorable matchup with the Texans, who just love to turn the ball over. Houston is giving up the second-most points to defenses this season.

Kicker

Chandler Catanzaro, ARI, owned in 18% of Yahoo Leagues

Coming off their bye week, Arizona gets a favorable matchup with the 49ers, who are just one of the worst teams in the league. They are also allowing the 10th-most points to kickers, Chandler has as good a chance to put up numbers as any kicker on the open market this week.
