Afternoon/Primetime Games
Kansas City Chiefs at San Diego Chargers (4:05 p.m.)
Branden Oliver, RB, SD
Oliver ran for 101 yards one TD last week against the Oakland Raiders. Oliver is going to continue to roll as he is a focal point of the rushing offense.
Projection: 75 yards, 1 TD

Arizona Cardinals at Oakland Raiders (4:25 p.m.)
Michael Floyd, WR, AZ
Floyd is going to get the opportunity to showcase his skills against one of the worst defenses in NFL history.
Projection: 11 receptions, 110 yards,  1 TD

New York Giants at Dallas Cowboys (4:25 p.m.)
Jason Witten, TE, DAL
This season has been rough for Witten in fantasy football, but this week he goes up against a Giants defense whose linebackers are not very good at covering tight ends. That will give Witten opportunities to get open this week.
Projection: 5 receptions, 70 yards, 1 TD

San Francisco 49ers at Denver Broncos (8:30 p.m.)
Emmanuel Sanders, WR, DEN
Denver’s quarterback Peyton Manning likes to target Sanders when they are playing top-ranked defenses, like the Seattle Seahawks. Sanders didn’t score many fantasy points last week against the Jets (six points), but last week was the exception and he’s going to produce against the 49ers.

Projection: 10 receptions, 80 yards

Monday, Oct. 20

Houston Texans at Pittsburgh Steelers (8:30 p.m.)
Arian Foster, RB, HOU
Last week, Ben Tate and Isaiah Crowell ran all over the Steelers, and now Foster is going to go off against them if their defense performs like they did against the Browns.
Projection: 110 yards, 2 TDS
