Fantasy Preview:

Starts:

Darrell Henderson(Against Giants)

Henderson has been seeing the bulk of the carries on a relatively strong offensive team. He has a favorable matchup against the 0-3 Giants, so make sure that Henderson is in your starting lineup this weekend.

Ronald Jones(Against Chargers)

With Leonard Fournette now out, Ronald Jones will be able to get the red zone carries that Fournette was taking from him. Chris Godwin’s injury will also give the Buccaneers a reason to use the run game, even more, this week. While Jones has looked like a solid bench RB, this week he should be a must-start.

Kenny Golladay(Against Saints)

Golladay will not be facing both Janoris Jenkins and Marshon Lattimore, as the CB pair will be out this week. Last week Golladay was getting back on his feet, as he returned after missing 2 weeks, but this week he should be able to return to his dominant self as he plays a banged-up secondary.

Sits:

Antonio Gibson(Against Ravens)

After lots of hype during the summer, Gibson has been a bit of a letdown. His red-zone touchdowns are what’s keeping him in the startable range for fantasy football, but he is not in a favorable matchup against a Ravens team looking to bounce back after a tough game.

Rex Burkhead(Against Chiefs)
Number one rule of fantasy… DON’T TRUST A PATRIOTS RUNNING BACK! While Burkhead did have a great game last week, there is a chance that he could barely even play this week. Nobody knows how Belichick creates his matchups and schemes. Damien Harris will also be making his season debut, which could hurt Burkhead’s touches.
