6. Mark Andrews, TE, Ravens vs. Cardinals

Andrews has had receptions at least 20 yards or longer in seven of his last 17 regular-season games, so he can amass yardage in chunks. Against the Dolphins, he hauled in all eight targets for 108 yards and a touchdown. The Cardinals were formidable against tight ends last season but let T.J. Hockenson set a rookie debut record with 131 yards.

7. Ka'imi Fairbairn, K, Texans vs. Jaguars

The Jaguars have a top-notch secondary to go with a strong pass rush, so you could see a lot of Texans drives stalling in field goal range.

8. Saints defense at Rams

The Saints popped off the screen with six sacks against the Texans, but they still gave up 28 points. Guaranteed, Jared Goff won't hold the ball as long as Deshaun Watson does.



1. Joe Flacco, QB, Broncos vs. Bears

The Raiders are improved but you get the feeling Flacco should've done more with his opportunities. His receivers -- outside of Emmanuel Sanders -- still seem green, and you'd expect the Bears defense to be keyed up for a game against their former coordinator, Vic Fangio.

2. David Montgomery, RB, Bears at Broncos
