Note: I will never include
A look at last week's Lions 5: I had a great week picking the Lions 5 last week. I told you to start Stafford (25),
Trent Richardson, RB, Indianapolis (vs. JAX): Richardson has a full week of practice under his belt with his new team and is facing a Jaguars team that's giving up either 100 yards or a score (in some cases both) the first three games of the season.
Tony Romo, QB, Dallas (vs. SD): Romo has scored 20-plus points twice in three games and is facing a Chargers team that's allowed the second-most fantasy points to opposing quarterbacks (32 on average).
Torrey Smith, WR, Baltimore (at BUF): Smith has recorded at least 85 yards in each of his first three games. He could get his first touchdown of the year this week against a Bills defense that's given up five of them so far.
Darren McFadden, RB, Oakland (vs. WAS): McFadden had only nine yards rushing last week but ran for a score and threw for another. This week he'll feast on the Redskins defense that's given up the third-most Fantasy points to opposing running backs.
Heath Miller, TE, Pittsburgh (at MIN): The Vikings allowed one tight end touchdown Week 1 vs. Detroit, two the following week vs. Chicago and three last week to Cleveland. Miller might have a career day.
Ryan Mathews, RB, San Diego (vs. DAL): After an okay start to the year (11 points vs. Houston), Mathews has scored just seven and five, respectively, the last two weeks. The most rushing yards Dallas has given up this year is 55 (Week 2 vs. Kansas City) and has yet to yield a rushing touchdown.
Matt Schaub, QB, Houston (vs. SEA): The Seahawks have allowed the fewest fantasy points to opposing quarterbacks so far this year (26).
Andre Johnson, WR, Houston (vs. SEA): It's not a great matchup for Johnson, especially considering he's not 100 percent. If you can afford to sit him this week, it might not be a bad option.
Eli Manning, QB, New York Giants (vs. KC): It's only a matter of time before Manning goes off, but the odds aren't in his favor this week against a Chief defense that has yet to allow a 300-yard passer and has given up only two passing touchdowns.
Greg Jennings, WR, Minnesota (vs. PIT): Jennings has to be missing quarterback Aaron Rodgers about now. He's yet to reach double-digit Fantasy points and has been held to four or less in two of his three games this year.
Matt Flynn, QB, Oakland (vs. WAS): Flynn is playing the Redskins. That is all.
Bilal Powell, RB, New York Jets (at TEN): Powell had 12 Fantasy points two weeks ago against New England and 14 last week vs. Buffalo. He's the man in that backfield now and faces a Titans defensethat's given up at least 100 rushing yards and a touchdown the last two weeks.
Jay Cutler, QB, Chicago (at DET): Since joining the Bears in 2009, Cutler is 7-1 vs. Detroit, completing 155 of 244 (63.5 pct.) for 1,802 yards with 12 touchdowns, one interception and a 100.5 rating.
Le'Veon Bell, RB, Pittsburgh (at MIN): Bell is likely to make his season debut this week for a Steelers team desperate for a consistent runner. The Vikings have given up the fourth-most Fantasy points to opposing running backs this year.
Kenbrell Thompkins, WR, New England (at ATL): The Falcons have already allowed double-digit Fantasy Points to five receivers in three games.
