Quarterbacks

  1. Aaron Rodgers vs. San Francisco
  2. Cam Newton at Tampa Bay
  3. Andrew Luck vs. Jacksonville
  4. Carson Palmer vs. St. Louis
  5. Tyrod Taylor vs. New York Giants
  6. Andy Dalton vs. Kansas City
  7. Matt Ryan vs. Houston
  8. Russell Wilson vs. Detroit
  9. Peyton Manning vs. Minnesota
  10. Derek Carr at Chicago
  11. Philip Rivers vs. Cleveland
  12. Joe Flacco at Pittsburgh
  13. Blake Bortles at Indianapolis
  14. Ryan Fitzpatrick at Miami
  15. Michael Vick vs. Baltimore
Notes:

Aaron Rodgers just had a five touchdown performance against one of the best pass rushing defenses in the NFL and now gets to face a defense that has been shredded in two out of their three performances this season. Rodgers also exposed an injured Kansas City secondary that must go up against Andy Dalton and the Bengals' offense that has been the leading portion of their 3-0 record. The theme for many of the quarterbacks on this list is "ride the wave." Carson Palmer, Tyrod Taylor and Cam Newton all were not top round draft pick players coming into 2015, but they are hot in their early performances and if you're hurting from an injured starting quarterback like Ben Roethlisberger, Tony Romo or Drew Brees, these are great options to keep your team afloat until your house is in order again.

Running Backs
  1. Le'Veon Bell vs. Baltimore
  2. Eddie Lacy vs. San Francisco
  3. Jamaal Charles at Cincinnati
  4. Matt Forte vs. Oakland
  5. Adrian Peterson at Denver
  6. Joseph Randle at New Orleans
  7. LaTavius Murray at Chicago
  8. Mark Ingram vs. Dallas
  9. Jeremy Hill vs. Kansas City
  10. Melvin Gordon vs. Cleveland
  11. Marshawn Lynch vs. Detroit
  12. Frank Gore vs. Jacksonville
  13. Carlos Hyde at Green Bay
  14. Justin Forsett at Pittsburgh
  15. Devonta Freeman vs. Houston
Notes:

Joseph Randle showed how much of a receiving weapon he can be when he became Brandon Weeden's safety valve this weekend and scored three touchdowns. His value shoots him way up the charts, especially as they prepare to face a struggling Saints' defense. Eddie Lacy faces a struggling 49ers defense and Frank Gore finally showed up for fantasy owners last week.

Wide Receivers
  1. Julio Jones vs. Houston
  2. AJ Green vs. Kansas City
  3. Randall Cobb at San Francisco
  4. DeAndre Hopkins at Atlanta
  5. Demaryius Thomas vs. Minnesota
  6. Antonio Brown vs. Baltimore
  7. Emmanuel Sanders vs. Minnesota
  8. Odell Beckham Jr. at Buffalo
  9. Amari Cooper at Chicago
  10. Steve Smith at Pittsburgh
  11. Larry Fitzgerald vs. St. Louis
  12. Keenan Allen vs. Cleveland
  13. Brandon Marshall at Miami
  14. Mike Evans vs. Carolina
  15. Allen Robinson at Indianapolis
Notes:

Julio Jones is looking unstoppable and will take over the top fantasy wide receiver spot for Fanduel lineups while Antonio Brown works with Michael Vick in Roethlisberger's absence. AJ Green's explosion against the Ravens was extreme and considering Kansas City's hurting secondary he could be primed for a similar performance this week. Also give Keenan Allen a look this week in fantasy; he has exploded for two big weeks so far this season and goes up against Cleveland's secondary that is dealing with their leading cornerback, Joe Haden, being day-to-day with a rib injury after they were scorched by Amari Cooper and the Raiders last week.
