Josh Allen, Bills ($8,700) at Arizona
I mentioned Allen last week, and I’ll go back to him for a solid matchup against Arizona. With both Buffalo and Arizona ranking top-8 in Football Outsiders’ situation neutral pace, this environment looks conducive to fantasy goodness.
Of course, Allen’s shown us a high ceiling on several occasions. He’s hit 25 FD points 5 times; 30+ 3 times. In what looks like the highest-scoring game of the week (total of 56), Allen’s an easy sell.
Also consider: Justin Herbert
Mike Davis, Panthers ($5,400) vs. Tampa Bay
Davis’ 32.1% projected ownership isn’t a surprise. He’ll return to his workhorse role with Christian McCaffrey sidelined. And despite a tough matchup against Tampa Bay, we know he can deliver in the passing game (he’s posted 5+ catches 6 times already).
It’s also worth remembering that the Bucs are without stud DT Vita Vea, who’s out for the season with a broken leg.
Duke Johnson, Texans ($5,800) at Cleveland
David Johnson's absence will force Duke into the lead role against his old team. If you’re on the fence here, consider the fact that high winds are expected in Cleveland come game-time. That figures to push the Texans towards the run.
Ultimately, Johnson looks like a safe bet for 15-18+ touches in a neutral matchup.
Also consider: Aaron Jones, Antonio Gibson, Miles Sanders
Davante Adams, Packers ($9,500) vs. Jacksonville
Sure, the price isn’t ideal. But you can’t argue with Adams’ results. He’s hit 10 targets in all but 1 game; 26 FD points in all but 2.
The Jags sit 28th in Pro Football Focus’ pass coverage grades. Vegas clearly has high expectations here, pegging Green Bay for a slate-high 31.25 points.
Keenan Allen, Chargers ($7,800) at Miami
With Austin Ekeler and Justin Jackson out, the Chargers backfield remains a question mark.
Allen, though, provides a consistent playmaker. He’s caught at least 7 passes in all but 1 of Justin Herbert’s 7 starts. Plus, his primary slot role will keep him away from Byron Jones and Xavien Howard for a chunk of Sunday’s game.
Terry McLaurin, Washington ($7,000) at Detroit
McLaurin continues to supply an attractive blend of talent and volume.
Week 9 produced his 3rd straight game with 7 catches. He’s now hit 8+ targets in 6 of 8 games.
Now he’s in a dome against a subpar Lions pass D. As long as Alex Smith is merely competent, McLaurin should deliver here.
Also consider: Michael Thomas, Stefon Diggs, DeVante Parker, Brandin Cooks, Jarvis Landry, John Brown
Dallas Goedert, Eagles ($5,800) at New York Giants
Goedert saw only 1 target on 25 routes run back in Week 8. But that was his first game back from an ankle fracture and a high ankle sprain. With some extra time to rest following a Week 9 bye, I expect his role to return to a pre-injury level.
The Eagles are getting healthier with Jalen Reagor, Miles Sanders and Alshon Jeffery (likely) back. But Goedert’s rapport with Carson Wentz is strong, while we’ve seen this Eagles offense lean pass. That’s helped Goedert tally games of 9 and 8 targets across his 4 appearances.

Green Bay ($4,800) vs. Jacksonville
