Another week in the books and it may be time to make some trade if your squad is 0-3 or 1-2. These players should be available somewhere in your league and would make great bye week plays for the Green Bay Packers’ and Carolina Panthers’ players on your team.
Ben Roethlisberger (vs. Minnesota): Roethlisberger may have struggled the first two weeks of the season, but he played pretty well against the Chicago Bears in Week 3. The Vikings have allowed nine touchdowns through the air, so expect a good week from Big Ben.
Bilal Powell (vs. Tennessee): With Chris Ivory likely missing some time, Powell becomes the go-to back for the New York Jets in Week 4. The amount of carries that he will receive will definitely make it possible for a lot of points, even against a decent run defense.
Torrey Smith (vs. Buffalo): The Bills have allowed five double-digit scorers at the wide receiver position through three weeks and Smith will be the best option for the Ravens through the air no matter who is covering him.
Heath Miller (vs. Minnesota): Miller did not play all the snaps in Week 3, but he should be on the filed for most of them in this matchup. Minnesota has allowed six touchdowns to tight ends, including three last week to Jordan Cameron.
Sebastian Janikowski (vs. Washington): Even with Terrelle Pryor likely missing Week 4 action, the Raiders should move down the field which means Janikowski will get some field goals.
Kansas City DEF (vs. New York Giants): Eli Manning has kep turning the ball over and the Chiefs have playmakers on the defensive side of the ball. Until Eli starts making the right play, any defense he plays should be started.
Eli Manning (vs. Kansas City): Manning has thrown pick after pick lately and has yet to have any solid outings. Expect this to continue until Manning starts being able to throw the ball more accurately down field.
Chris Johnson (vs. New York Jets): The Jets’ run defense is one of the best in the league and Johnson has not really done that well on the ground this season with less than four yards per carry.
Greg Jennings (vs. Pittsburgh): It may be tough to sit Jennings, but Matt Cassell is now the starting quarterback and no one really knows what to expect from Cassell in this matchup.
Tony Gonzalez (vs. New England): The Patriots have allowed only 2.1 fantasy points to tight ends in 2013, so Gonzalez should be out of all lineups in this Sunday night contest.
Randy Bullock (vs. Seattle): Bullock has yet t reach double digits in fantasy points and might not have a chance to score many against the tough defense of the Seahawks.
Chicago DEF (vs. Detroit): The Lions are favored at home and should be able to put up some points on the defense of the Bears. Matthew Stafford just needs to avoid turnovers!
