Cam Newton takes the number one spot this week. I have been telling you guys to trade for him, his schedule gets very easy from here on out.

I like Mike Vick to have his best game of the year and to prove worthy of the #2 ranking this week.

Tony Romo plays bold  in Altanta, while Matt Ryan doesn’t do as well as expected against a tough Dallas secondary.

Reggie Bush really needs to get it done this week against Indy. He has been frustrating ever since his knee injury against the Jets. If he struggles again this week, it’s time to be very worried about how he finishes the year. 

Look for Ray Rice to get a big workload and for James Starks to outplay Alex Green against the Cards if given the opportunity.

Steve Smith should have his best game of the year against Washington. He can absolutely abuse DeAngelo Hall

I am very weary on Calvin Johnson as you see in my rankings. Hasn’t practiced all week, could be OUT and if he does play could be limited to 3rd downs.

I think the Cowboys corners do a nice job on Roddy and Julio that is why they are both bumped down a bit. Dallas is giving up the fewest points to WR’s. Titus Young could very well play much better there where I have him ranked, especially with the Jags secondary banged up and possibly Megatron being out. Don’t be afraid to notch him up a few spots if you want. I have him there because he has to show me a bit more still as well as Stafford.

Denarius Moore has a great matchup especially with Bucs former CB Talib shipped off to New England.

Demaryius Thomas might be in my top five every week. In one of my leagues a guy just stole Thomas in a trade as well as Forte and that trade could easily get him into the title game. Thomas is going to finish extremely strong as will Eric Decker

Tight Ends

  1. Jason Witten @ ATL
  2. Jimmy Graham vs PHI
  3. Tony Gonzalez vs DAL
  4. Owen Daniels vs BUF
  5. Heath Miller @ NYG
  6. Greg Olsen @ WAS
  7. Jermaine Gresham vs DEN
  8. Brent Celek @ NO
  9. Kyle Rudolph @ SEA
  10. Jermichael Finley vs ARI
  11. Brandon Pettigrew @ JAC
  12. Martellus Bennett vs PIT
  13. Brandon Myers vs TB
  14. Dwayne Allen vs MIA
  15. Dallas Clark @ OAK
  16. Dennis Pitta @ CLE
  17. Logan Paulsen vs CAR
  18. Scott Chandler @ HOU
  19. Jacob Tamme @ CIN
  20. Joel Dreessen @ CIN
  21. Jared Cook vs CHI
  22. Zach Miller vs MIN

Witten takes the number one spot after last week’s performance. Greg Olsen should enjoy a very nice game being the second option with Brandon LaFell out. Dwayne Allen, Brandon Myers and Dallas Clark all are decent plays this week  if you plug them in for Vernon Davis or Rob Gronkowski who are on their bye week.
