Sometimes because of match-ups you have to roll out less than ideal lineups, especially when your players are nicked up. That’s the nature of the beast. Sometimes you need a fantasy gem to be successful. Here are some of the under the radar players that could possibly pull out a win for you.
.
Blaine Gabbert, QB, Arizona Cardinals – Tennessee ranks 25th with 22 touchdown passes allowed.
Jimmy Garoppolo, QB, San Francisco 49ers – Houston ranks 27th with 23 touchdown passes allowed.
Josh McCown, QB, New York Jets – Denver has allowed a league-high 26 touchdown passes allowed.
Peyton Barber, RB, Tampa Bay Buccaneers – Detroit has allowed 16 rushing scores.
Giovani Bernard, RB, Cincinnati Bengals – Should be lead back with Joe Mixon (concussion) possibly out.
Mike Davis, RB, Seattle Seahawks – Jags rank 20th with 115.4 rushing yards allowed per game.
Frank Gore, RB, Indianapolis Colts – Turns back the clock against the Bills and their league-high 18 rushing TDs allowed.
Alfred Morris, RB, Dallas Cowboys – Another strong game should be in order against the Giants’ league-worst run defense.
Martavis Bryant, WR, Pittsburgh Steelers – Gets bump due to JuJu Smith-Schuster’s suspension.
Randall Cobb, WR, Green Bay Packers – Browns rank 27th with 23 touchdown passes allowed.
Zay Jones, WR, Buffalo Bills – Colts have allowed league-worst 271.6 passing yards per game.
Jermaine Kearse, WR, New York Jets – Denver has allowed a league-high 26 touchdown passes allowed.
Dwayne Allen, TE, New England Patriots – Gets bump due to Gronk’s suspension.
Stephen Anderson, TE, Houston Texans – San Francisco ranks 24th with 21 touchdown passes allowed.
Ricky Seals-Jones, TE, Arizona Cardinals – Tennessee ranks 25th with 22 touchdown passes allowed.
Cincinnati Bengals Defense – Force Chicago into mistakes?
Green Bay Packers Defense – Enjoys facing Cleveland?
New York Jets Defense – Takes advantage of Denver’s QB woes?

.
Alex Smith, QB, San Francisco 49ers
Smith is back as the Niners’ starting quarterback. With Vernon Davis and Michael Crabtree at his disposal, the former number one pick should be able to exploit Seattle’s 30th ranked (283.7 yards allowed per game) pass defense. A little smaller reach would be to go with Josh Freeman against Washington.
.
James Starks, RB, Green Bay Packers
Sparks got everybody’s attention with his 73 yard debut.  He should get plenty of more work this week against Detroit’s 25th ranked (127.4 ypg) run defense.
.
Earl Bennett, WR, Chicago Bears
It’s hard to call somebody that followed up a four catch, 56 yard, two touchdown performance with seven catches for 104 yards a sleeper, but Bennett is not exactly on most fantasy radars. He’s on Jay Cutler’s radar though, and that’s what matters, especially when he’s facing New England’s 31st ranked (287.8 ypg) pass defense.
.
Jordan Shipley, WR, Cincinnati Bengals
The Steelers will bring the heat on Carson Palmer, meaning he will be looking to dump the ball off to Jordan Shipley and Jermaine Gresham. If you have a better alternative, play him, but if you’re desperate, Shipley could be a solid play. Anthony Armstrong is a decent gamble to break a long play against Tampa Bay.
.
Ed Dickson, TE, Baltimore Ravens
Dickson caught three passes for 21 yards last week, but is in a good position to take a jump this week. Todd Heap isn’t expected to play and Houston has allowed a league worst 298.3 passing yards and 27 passing touchdowns.
.
Denver Broncos Defense
It is definitely hard to rely on a defense who’s coach was recently fired, but it seems that the teams that have fired their coach have played looser with that pressure gone. Denver’s defense has been less than adequate, but they are taking on a solid match-up against Arizona.
