Red Zone Risers/Fallers - Tevin Coleman, Julian Edelman, Derrick Henry

Welcome Back, Matthew Stafford

The NFC North could be the best division in the league. Not only in terms of overall competitiveness, but in how terrifying each defense has been.

Jacksonville's Confusing Pass Offense

Outside of Leonard Fournette, it has been hard to consistently trust a fantasy option on Jacksonville's offense. Nick Foles broke his collarbone in Week 1, thrusting sixth-round rookie Gardner Minshew II into the starting lineup. The tight end position is simply not producing numbers.
