  • 91. Kyle Rudolph, (TE No. 4) TE, Vikings. Bye: 6.

    Rudolph is solid week in and week out, and has a good ceiling against the Saints' pass defense.

  • 92. Jamison Crowder, (WR No. 31) WR, Redskins. Bye: 9.

    Crowder had trouble with the Eagles last season and will likely be bottled up inside, where the Eagles are better against the pass.

  • 93. Robert Kelley, (RB No. 28) RB, Redskins. Bye: 9.

    Kelley is the lead back and worth a flex play, but his upside is capped due to him not being that good.

  • 94. Kenny Britt, (WR No. 32) WR, Browns. Bye: 13.

  • 95. Pierre Garcon, (WR No. 33) WR, 49ers. Bye: 8.

  • 96. Eddie Lacy, (RB No. 29) RB, Seahawks. Bye: 5.

    Lacy hasn't looked very good this preseason, but should get the start as Thomas Rawls is dealing with a high ankle sprain. If Lacy is completely uneffective, we could easily see C.J. Prosise and Chris Carson get work, so this situation isn't the best for fantasy.

  • 97. Jordan Reed, (TE No. 5) TE, Redskins. Bye: 9.

    Reed is nearly unstoppable when clicking on all cylinders, but did have trouble against Philadelphia last season.

  • 98. Chris Hogan, (WR No. 34) WR, Patriots. Bye: 9.

    Hogan is likely to see the best uptick in work with Julian Edelman on the pine. Brady and Hogan were on the same page when they connected for two touchdowns in the third preseason game, and I expect that connection to keep going against Kansas City.

  • 99. Jeremy Hill, (RB No. 30) RB, Bengals. Bye: 9.

    Hill is the lead back right now and should get all goal-line carries, but this matchup is tough.

  • 100. Adrian Peterson, (RB No. 31) RB, Saints. Bye: 5.

    Peterson will need touchdowns to be worthwhile, and we know he's scored those in the past, but this run defense in Minnesota isn't going to roll over.

  • 101. Kendall Wright, (WR No. 35) WR, Bears. Bye: 9.

    Wright may not be in line for a huge day, but he should be in line for the target lead and a good number of receptions for PPR leagues.

  • 102. Ted Ginn, (WR No. 36) WR, Saints. Bye: 5.

  • 103. Tyler Eifert, (TE No. 6) TE, Bengals. Bye: 9.

    Eifert scores touchdowns when healthy, so the odds are in his favor to do just that.

  • 104. LeGarrette Blount, (RB No. 32) RB, Eagles. Bye: 4.

    Blount will need a goal-line touchdown to be useful, and that is in no way assured.

  • 105. Zay Jones, (WR No. 37) WR, Bills. Bye: 10.
