19 Alex Smith, Kansas City vs. San Diego

20 Blaine Gabbert, San Francisco at Cleveland

Running backs

1 LeSean McCoy, Buffalo at Philadelphia ... Shady McCoy should be crazy motivated, returning to Philadelphia for the first time and McCoy is on fire of late with at least 100 yards from scrimmage in six consecutive games, while Philadelphia allows the fantasy points to opposing running backs over the past three weeks

2 Thomas Rawls, Seattle at Baltimore ... Rawls is the No. 2 running back in fantasy stats over the last three weeks

21 Charles Sims, Tampa Bay vs. New Orleans

22 Frank Gore, Indianapolis at Jacksonville
