• Philadelphia at San Francisco 4:25 p.m.
Darren Sproles, RB, PHI:
The 49ers have a stout defense, which will force Eagles QB Nick Foles to throw a lot of check downs to Sproles. Projection: 9 receptions, 66 yards.

• New Orleans at Dallas 8:30 p.m.
Tony Romo, QB, DAL:
Romo hasn’t produced the greatest fantasy numbers the last three weeks, but this week he will be in a shootout against the Saints and will be playing from behind most of the game.
Prediction: 320 yards, 3 TDs.

Monday, Sept. 29
• New England at Kansas City 8:30 p.m.

Brady is experiencing his worst year in fantasy in a long time, and it’s time for him to prove his haters wrong. Brady won’t blow up against the Chiefs, because Kansas City has a tough defense. Brady will throw for a few TDs in this game.
Projection: 220 yards passing, 2 TDs.
