This is a big scoring period for a lot of Fantasy managers with the playoffs approaching in three weeks in the majority of leagues. Hopefully, you’re getting ready and making your playoff push. It won’t be easy, especially with four prominent teams on a bye, including the Packers, Giants, Seahawks and Titans. That means you don’t have some high-profile quarterbacks (Aaron Rodgers and Russell Wilson), running backs (Aaron Jones, Saquon Barkley, Chris Carson and Derrick Henry) and receivers (Davante Adams, Tyler Lockett and Golden Tate), who are hard to replace.
There are also some big-time injuries we’re dealing with, including Matthew Stafford (back), Devonta Freeman (foot), Adam Thielen (hamstring), Emmanuel Sanders (ribs), T.Y. Hilton (calf), George Kittle (knee) and Austin Hooper (knee). The good news is we could be getting guys back like Jacoby Brissett (knee), Will Fuller (hamstring) and Dede Westbrook (shoulder), which will help.
Good luck in getting a win this week. Hopefully, this is the start of your playoff run to a Fantasy title.

Start ‘Em & Sit ‘Em
I’m always a fan of players getting the chance to return to their hometown, and Devin Singletary grew up in South Florida. He went to American Heritage High School in Plantation, Fla., and he attended Florida Atlantic University. This should be fun for him in his first NFL game back home. I’m expecting him to put on a show in Miami as my Start of the Week.
Singletary was great in Week 9 against Washington with 20 carries for 95 yards and a touchdown, as well as three catches for 45 yards on four targets. But instead of building on that in Week 10 at Cleveland, Singletary only had eight carries for 42 yards, along with three catches for 8 yards on seven targets.
The play-calling against the Browns has been questioned in Buffalo, and I expect the run game to be featured here against the Dolphins. It makes sense to give Singletary 15-plus touches in this matchup, especially since he’s averaging 6.4 yards per carry and 7.4 yards per catch. He’s No. 1 in the NFL in yards per attempt of running backs with at least 40 carries this year.
This matchup against Miami won’t be easy since the Dolphins have played better of late in wins against the Jets and Colts. But Le’Veon Bell had 111 total yards in Week 9, while Marlon Mack had 82 total yards, and the Dolphins are still No. 5 in Fantasy points allowed to running backs for the season.
Frank Gore will again be a speed bump in slowing down Singletary a little bit, but the Bills should give him all the touches he can handle to avoid losing for a third time in the past four games. Singletary has the chance to be a star if the Bills give him work, especially in his return home.
Rams (vs. CHI) — 11.9 projected points
- Raiders (vs. CIN) — 11.0 projected points
- Jets (vs. WAS) — 11.6 projected points
- Redskins (vs. NYJ) — 13.0 projected points
Colts (vs. JAC) — 11.7 projected points
