There are two weeks left in the fantasy season! Whether you’re sitting comfortably in a top-two seed, pushing for that final wild-card berth, or grinding out the season and playing spoiler, these rankings will lead you to your goal. The highlight of this week is a battle of two NFC titans: the Green Bay Packers and San Francisco 49ers. Can the Niners shut down Aaron Rodgers and this Packers’ offense?

21Daniel Jonesat Bears
22Jeff Driskelat Redskins
23Kyle Allenat Saints
24Ryan Finleyvs. Steelers

Wilson takes over as QB1 since he has the best matchup of the elite quarterbacks. We could see this Seahawks/Eagles game turn into a shootout. The dark horse for QB1 is Mayfield, who has quietly played a bit better lately, with zero interceptions in his last three games. He gets to face the Dolphins’ dismal defense at home this week.

34Frank Gorevs. Broncos
35Bo Scarboroughat Redskins
36Kalen Ballageat Browns

McCaffrey continues to see ridiculous usage, so even in a tough matchup in New Orleans, he remains as RB1. The dark horse for RB1 is Montgomery, who faces a Giants’ defense allowing 122.7 rushing yards per game. The Bears are six-point favorites, so they’re projected to control this game, leading to positive game flow for Montgomery.

47Taylor Gabrielvs. Giants
48Josh Reynoldsvs. Ravens

Thomas is one of the most consistent receivers in recent memory, posting 100+ receiving yards in five of his last six games. He remains WR1 against the Panthers’ banged-up secondary. The dark horse for WR1 is Beckham, who could finally have his long-awaited blow-up game against the Dolphins.

Tight Ends

1Zach Ertzvs. Seahawks

19Dawson Knoxvs. Broncos
20Foster Moreauat Jets
21Cameron Brateat Falcons
22Ricky Seals-Jonesvs. Dolphins
23Darren Fellsvs. Colts
24Rhett Ellisonat Bears

TE is a mess this week with Travis Kelce and Hunter Henry on byes, as well as George Kittle, Evan Engram, and Austin Hooper out with injuries. Ertz claims TE1 in a likely shootout against the Seahawks. The dark horse for TE1 is Hollister, who has developed a rapport with Wilson in recent weeks, totaling 12 receptions in his last two games.

D/STs
RankTeamOpponent
   
1New England Patriotsvs. Cowboys
2San Francisco 49ersvs. Packers
3Pittsburgh Steelersat Bengals
4Buffalo Billsvs. Broncos

6Chicago Bearsvs. Giants
7New Orleans Saintsvs. Panthers
8Atlanta Falconsvs. Buccaneers
9Baltimore Ravensat Rams
10Tennessee Titansvs. Jaguars
11Jacksonville Jaguarsat Titans
12Denver Broncosat Bills

The Patriots defense has slowed down in recent weeks, but we have to keep them as D/ST1 even in a tough game against the Cowboys. The Pats should take care of business in this one. The dark horse for D/ST1 is the Titans, who have scored seven or more fantasy points in every home game this season.
