As we enter the tenth week, I’m getting to know a lot more about these match-ups and the strengths and weaknesses of each guy. All of my scoring is based off of standard ESPN Scoring. Enjoy!
5. Jason Witten @ Eagles

The Eagles fired Juan Castillo for their mess of a defense. Since his departure things have just got worse for Philadelphia. Witten has been the number one target of Tony Romo all season and things won’t change this week. I expect big numbers from Witten in a pivotal game for the Cowboys this week with their division rivals.
4. Tony Gonzalez @ Saints

Gonzo and the Falcons continue to pump out numbers on offense. He’s 95 percent sure he’s going to retire and he wants to go out with a bang. He’s playing tremendous football and continues to put up great stats. He hasn’t found the endzone in a few weeks but he’s still getting good points in yardage. With that alone he has been worth starting, and when he finds the endzone it’ll be a definite bonus. This week they play the Saints who are the first team in NFL History to give up at least 425 yards in every game of the year so far. This week won’t be any different.
3. Heath Miller vs. Chiefs

My boy Heath made the list one week and hasn’t left since. Roethlisberger continues to rely on Miller in clutch situations and he’s putting up career numbers. I don’t see Ben needing to find him in a hurry this week as they play the lifeless Chiefs, so Ben will be able to toss it around like the game is a practice. Todd Haley wants a piece of his former team and he’ll make sure to include Miller in the gameplan as he has every week. The Steelers are foaming at the mouth to get this easy win, and Miller should have a big day while doing so.
2. Jimmy Graham vs. Falcons

Can never discount Graham, he continues to put up great numbers week in and week out and he isn’t slowing down no matter the opponent. The Falcons are a pretty good defense, but that won’t phase Graham. He should be able to get to the endzone and put up over 100 yards. Should be a solid performance from him.
1. Rob Gronkowski vs. Buffalo
(Brad Mills-US PRESSWIRE)
There has been one week where Rob Gronkowski didn’t hold the number one spot, and the only reason was because it was a Patriots bye week. They are fresh off the bye and well rested, getting ready to face a Buffalo Bills team that couldn’t trap air in a bottle. Gronk should put up huge points this week, and thereafter. I don’t think he leaves this spot all season!
Sleeper: Brandon Meyers @ Ravens: The Raiders have had a surprisingly decent offense thus far into the season. Things haven’t been great on the ground with the zone blocking scheme, so Carson Palmer has had to chuck the ball around. He’s on track for career numbers, and his number one receiver is Brandon Meyers. Meyers continues to tear it up on the ground and the Raiders finally figured out how to use him in the redzone, which led to his two touchdowns a week ago. Darren McFadden and backup Mike Goodson are likely out this week, so a struggling run game gets even worse causing Carson to put the ball in the air more. Meyers will get it done this week against the Ravens who have struggled on defense as of late.
