The Panthers have given up 14 scores to running backs in 11 games. So, you’d think this’d be the week Jerick McKinnon finally gets into the end zone. Jerick has touched the ball 140 times and has yet to find pay dirt. Even without garnering goal line opportunities, the probability of this occurring is very, very low. Especially considering how good he’s been. Only seven RBs have a better YPC than McKinnon (minimum 100 carries), and he’s Lucky Pierre’d between Jamaal Charles and Alfred Morris in elusive rating. Plus, Carolina’s allowed the seventh most 20+ yard runs and a league high four 40+ yard scampers. Regression’s on the way. The good type of regression.

Let’s say you lost Nick Foles and Carson Palmer in consecutive weeks, and waiver wire whiffed on Mark Sanchez and Josh McCown to replace them. Maybe you just have Matt Ryan or Matthew Stafford and are fed up with either’s inconsistency. I have a solution. His name is Zach Mettenberger, who eerily puts up the same numbers every week. The rook’s tossed two TDs in three of four starts, averaging over 300 yards in those games. And the Texans are far from a difficult matchup. Opposing QBs have scored 15 or more Fantasy points in six straight against ‘em. There’s a bonus too: get Mettenberger now, and ride his soft schedule to a championship, if you need him. After Houston, the Titans close Giants, Jets and Jags.

In your mind movies, Ryan Fitzpatrick kills the value of his receivers. Which is somewhat true, unless you’re DeAndre Hopkins, who’s become one of the most consistent options at the position. Likely because the Fitzmagic is a NERRRRDDDDDDDDD and knows his passer rating is 21 points higher tossing it in DeAndre’s direction over Andre Johnson. Hopkins has nine or more targets in five straight, is tied with Jeremy Maclin and Randall Cobb in yards per route run and draws a fairly soft matchup with the Titans. Tennessee’s allowed at least one receiver to score in their past three road games.

Now’s no time for bench mistakes. Unless you’ve clinched already. Then this is the perfect week to choose poorly. Get it out of your system.

There’s a dirty little secret floating around Fantasy Football circles that owners have been exploiting for years. And you don’t realize it until you’ve rostered the guy. Fred Jackson is really good. And consistent; don’t sleep on his consistency. He’s the prototype RB2… when he’s healthy. Which he appears to be at the moment. Jackson has a touchdown or 100 total yards in four of his last five games with double-digit touches, and he’s been integrated in the Bills’ passing attack more than ever before, hauling in 60-percent more catches per game this season than his career rate. Yes, he’ll lose touches to Anthony Dixon, but Jackson’s always split touches with someone. It’s never mattered. And, facing a Browns squad that’s allowed the fourth most rushing yards in 2014, even 15 touches will produce Top 20 RB numbers.

Some were pensive slotting Delanie Walker into their starting lineup against the Eagles in a touch matchup. However with so few tight ends as heavily involved in their team’s offense as Walker, there’s safety in his usage. In three games with How’s your Mettenberger, Walker’s seen nine targets in two and five in the other. He only played a quarter and a half in that one. He’s the primary look. For the week he’s my fifth ranked tight end, the rest of the season too.

Could you use 20+ points from your QB? Who couldn’t? That’s why you need to be running Ryan Tannehill through your lineup. Tannehill’s posted 20+ Fantasy points in four of eight games. Expect that stat to become “five of nine” after his gravy matchup against the Jets; the most generous squad to opposing pivots. And the best news, this is a primetime game. If there’s been one consistent bet to make all season, it’s the over in primetime. It’s blown past the number 29 of 37 times in 2014. So expect the ’Phins to be scoring, with Tannehill doing a ton of damage.

Lost in the commotion of Calvin Johnson’s return has been Golden Tate’s general awesomeness. Over the last month, GT3’s produced WR1 PPR totals and high end WR2 standard numbers. And the encouraging part is that he’s not relying on touchdowns to generate Fantasy points. There’s safety in yardage, scores for Tate are bonus points. He’s cracked the 100 yard barrier in six of eight games, and dominates everyone in football in yards after the catch, it’s what’s earned him at least one reception of 28-yards in each of his past five games. Bad News for the Bears, who’ve given up the third most passing plays of 20 yards or longer.

Four and half: the average number of sacks Carolina had given up the four weeks entering its bye. They also turned the ball over 11 times in that stretch, averaging 14 points per game. Outside of Jacksonville, the Panthers have been THEE team to stream against lately. Enter Minnesota, who are already a Top 10 unit limiting Fantasy QBs, but are very capable of generating sacks in bulk as well. Now, they only managed to take down Aaron Rodgers once Sunday, but had averaged four sacks per contest in the five games previous. They’re widely available if you’re stuck, and in Daily formats, make a cheap, contrarian alternative in tournament play.

You gotta give Andre Ellington credit. Despite two brutal matchups with the Lions and Seahawks, he’s remained a viable option because of his involvement in the Cards’ passing game. Ellington’s third in RB receptions, and traveling to Atlanta should only inflate his total. The Falcons are the second softest opponent a running back can draw, but they’re especially terrible in the flats. Atlanta’s given up the fifth most receptions to RBs, the fourth most receiving yards and the second most red zone touches. This plays perfectly into Ellington’s skills.

I unsuccessfully ran Alex Smith through my lineup in Week 2. He threw no touchdowns. It hurt, and confused me. Smith attempted 42 passes against Denver; he’s averaged 28.5 in the other 10 games. You’d think with the increased opportunity, he would have fluked into a score or two. That screams aberration. So, I’m going back to the well. If there’s one thing Smith’s guaranteed to do against the Broncos, it’s run; he’s averaging 47 yards on the ground in the past three with Denver, never falling below 42 in any one game. That’s basically a free TD with his legs.
