Take a seat, son
QB Ryan Tannehill. The second-year signal caller has been rock solid for the 3-0 Dolphins so far and has what, historically, looks like a friendly match-up against the Saints on Monday night. But Rob Ryan has the New Orleans defense playing much more stingy than year's past. If you were thinking of rolling with Tannehill, look for another option this week.
RB Ben Tate. He's been a more effective runner on a per-carry basis than Texans starter Arian Foster so far, but this is an absolutely brutal match-up against the Seahawks. Keep Foster in your line-up (remember, don't bench your studs) as he will likely get goal-line work, but scale back expectations for him.
RB Rashard Mendenhall. Still the starter in Arizona, but he's been ceding more carries to explosive Andre Ellington and even Alfonso Smith, and Tampa has been stingy against opposing RBs this year.
WR DeAndre Hopkins. Even if Andre Johnson plays and draws extra attention, the rookie will have a rough day against Seattle's top notch corners.
WR Mike Williams. New quarterback plus gimpy hamstring equals no thank you. His counterpart, Vincent Jackson, is banged up too, but he's much more talented.
TE Scott Chandler. He caught a long TD last week, and Baltimore's not had much success stopping TEs so far, but they've also played three above-average talents in Owen Daniels, Jordan Cameron and Orange Julius.
TE Rob Gronkowski. He's a game-time decision, unfortunately, it's the Sunday night game, meaning if he doesn't play, there are only a few other viable options. It's unlikely you have Tony Gonzales (the other TE in Sunday night's match-up) or Jimmy Graham (Monday night) if you've been waiting on Gronk, so unless you have Charles Clay of the Dolphins (also Monday night) you've got to go with someone else unless the rest of your team is so good you can afford a zero from your TE (and if that's the case, what are you doing reading a sit-start column?).
