Houston Texans @ New England Patriots

Good History

Tom Brady (NE) – He didn’t play in the Week 3 matchup against the Texans this year, but last year, threw for 226 yards, 2 TDs, and 0 INTs for 20.3 FP. He’s faced Houston 6 times in his career and is averaging 21.5 FPG against them.

Lamar Miller (Hou) – Over the last five contests against NE, Miller is averaging 12.2 FP, including 3 games of 14+ FP. Earlier this year, he rushed for 80 yards on 21 carries and added 4/27/0 receiving on 5 targets for 14.7 FP. His YPC hasn't been great though, failing to reach 4.0 in the last 3 games against them.

LeGarrette Blount (NE) – In Week 3 this year, Blount rushed 24 times for 105 yards and 2 TDs for 22.5 FP, his third highest total of the season.

Bad History

Brock Osweiler (Hou) - Osweiler was okay in the 2015 game against New England as a member of the Broncos, but down-right poor against them in Week 3 this year. In 2015, he completed just 23 of 42 passes for 270 yards, 1 TD and 1 INT for 17.9 FP. Earlier this year, he completed just 24 of 41 passes for a measly 196 yards, 0 TDs and 1 INT for 11.1 FP.

DeAndre Hopkins (Hou) – Hopkins has failed to reach double-digit FP the last 2 times he has faced New England. Last year, he caught 3 of 6 targets for 52 yards and 8.2 FP. This year, he caught 4 of 8 targets for 56 yards, good for 9.6 FP.

Julian Edelman (NE) – He did have 19.1 FP against them back in 2013, but earlier this year, Edelman caught just 4 of 6 targets for 38 yards. He added 14 yards rushing for 9.2 FP.

Malcolm Mitchell (NE) – Mitchell wasn’t really involved in the offense early in the year, so in Week 3 against Houston this year, he had just 1/27 receiving on 2 targets for 3.7 FP.

Pittsburgh Steelers @ Kansas City Chiefs

Good History

Ben Roethlisberger (Pit) – Ben has 2 outings of 30+ FP in his 6 career games against KC, including earlier this year in Week 4, when he completed 22 passes for 300 yards and a whopping 5 TDs, good for a season-high 34.9 FP. He hasn’t thrown an INT against KC in 3 meetings.

Alex Smith (KC) – He was much more than a game manager in Week 4 this year against the Steelers, throwing it a whopping 50 times, with 30 completions for 287 yards, 2 TDs and an INT, good for 22.6 FP.

Le’Veon Bell (Pit) – In Week 4 of this year, Bell rushed 18 times for 144 yards (a season-high and whopping 8.0 YPC), adding 5/34 receiving for 22.8 FP. In 2015, he rushed 17 times for 121 yards (7.1 YPC) with 4/16 receiving for 17.7 FP.

Antonio Brown (Pit) – His QB threw 5 TDs against KC earlier this year, and Brown was the recipient on 2 of them, as he 4 passes for 64 yards and 2 TDs for 22.4 FP. Brown is averaging 18.6 FPG against Kansas City in their last 4 meetings.

Sammie Coates (Pit) – He didn't have a TD but had 6 receptions for 79 yards against KC earlier this year on 8 targets, finishing with 13.8 FP, his second-highest total of the season.

Okay History

*Note – Few players in this matchup actually have “bad” history, but some have consistently performed below their average.

Jeremy Maclin (KC) – Maclin totaled 5/78 receiving on 8 targets in Week 4 against the Steelers this year. His 8 targets were the third-highest of his season, and the 12.8 FP finish was his fourth-best of the season.

Travis Kelce (KC) – Kelce is averaging 12.8 FPG in his last 2 meetings against Pittsburgh. He only totaled 23 yards in Week 4 this year against them but found the endzone. In 2015, he tallied 5/73 receiving against them.

Spencer Ware (KC) – The FP doesn’t back up the “good history” category, as he finished with his 10.6 FP against them in Week 4 this year, but he rushed 13 times for 82 yards and a very impressive 6.3 YPC, second-highest of the season. 

Green Bay Packers @ Dallas Cowboys

Good History

Aaron Rodgers (GB) – Rodgers has a career TD:INT ratio of 8:1 against the Cowboys, the only INT coming earlier this year, when he threw for 294 yards, 1 TD and 1 INT for 19.4 FP. He’s actually never hit the 300-yard passing mark in his career against Dallas, but has a completion % of nearly 70% against them, and has finished above 20 FP 4 out of the 6 times.

Dak Prescott (Dal) – Earlier this year in Week 6, the rookie Prescott passed for 247 yards on 18 attempts, with 3 TDs and 1 INT for 25.0 FP.

Ty Montgomery (GB) – Earlier this year in Week 6, Montgomery rushed only 3 times for 6 yards, but talled 10/98 receiving on a whopping 12 targets for 20.4 FP, his third-highest total of the season.

Ezekiel Elliott (Dal) – No surprise here. The rookie had a phenomenal game against the Packers in Week 6 this year, rushing 28 times for 157 yards (his second-highest of the season) and adding 2/17 receiving for 19.4 FP. He didn’t score a TD, but his 5.6 YPC was his fifth-best of the season 

Cole Beasley (Dal) – Beasley had a field day against the Packers in Week 6 this year, catching all 6 of his targets for 58 yards and 2 TDs, good for a season-high 23.8 FP.

Bad History

Davante Adams (GB) – In Week 6 this year, Adams had just 2/34 receiving on 3 targets for 5.4 FP, his third-lowest of the season.

Terrance Williams (Dal) – With no Dez Bryant in the lineup in Week 6 this year, Williams did catch 4 of 5 targets for 75 yards. In his two meetings with the Packers prior however, he totaled 7/84 receiving, averaging 77 FP.

Jason Witten (Dal) – He’s had success in the past, but the last two times facing Green Bay hasn’t been very fantasy friendly for Witten. In Week 6 this year against the Packers, he finished with 4/42 receiving for 8.2 FP. In 2015 he finished with 5/40 receiving. In 8 games against Green Bay, he has just 2 TDs and has broken the century mark receiving just once, in 2004.

Seattle Seahawks @ Atlanta Falcons 

Good History

Matt Ryan (Atl) – In Week 6 this year, Ryan went off against Seattle, throwing for 335 yards, 3 TDs and 1 INT, good for 29.0. FP. He’s finished with 20+ FP in 3 of his 4 meetings with Seattle.

Mohamed Sanu (Atl) – Like Julio, Sanu found the end-zone against the Seahawks in Week 6 this year, finishing with a 5/47/1 stat line on 10 targets for 15.7 FP.

Jimmy Graham (Sea) – In Week 6 this year, Graham caught 6 of 8 targets for 89 yards and 14.9 FP against the Falcons. He also saw Atlanta plenty as a member of the Saints. In his last 5 meetings with Atlanta dating back to 2013, he is averaging 16.7 FPG with 3 total TDs.

Bad History

Russell Wilson (Sea) – He’s had worse performances, but in Week 6 of this year against the Falcons, it took him 37 attempts just to get to 270 yards passing. He also failed to throw a TD and finished with 14.2 FP, his fourth-lowest total of the season.

Devonta Freeman (Atl) – Freeman had one of his worst 2016 fantasy outings against the Seahawks in Week 6 this year. He rushed for just 40 yards on 12 carries (3.3 YPC), adding 3/10 receiving for 8.0 FP, tied for his second-lowest FP performance of the season.

Tevin Coleman (Atl) – Like Devonta, Coleman had a poor showing in Week 6 against the Seahakws this year, rushing 5 times for just 10 yards and adding just 1/7 receiving for a season-low 2.7 FP.

Doug Baldwin (Sea) – Baldwin has never scored in his 3 meetings with the Falcons. Earlier this year in Week 6, he totaled just 4/31 receiving on 5 targets for 7.1 FP, his third-lowest outing of the season.

Jermaine Kearse (Sea) – Kearse did catch a TD against the Falcons in 2013, but in 2 games against Atlanta, caught a total of 6 balls, and put up just 3/35/0 receiving in Week 6 earlier this year for 6.5 FP.
