The Primetime games on Sunday and Monday night are the last chance that you have to change your fantasy fortunes.

There are many top performers in the two games to focus on.

Here are 3 players that will get you the points you need to put yourself over the top and earn that win.


Josh Freeman

The Buccaneers are coming up against a depleted Colts side who have no identity without their offensive leader Peyton Manning.

Both sides of the ball seem to be lacking for the Indianapolis Colts at the moment and Josh Freeman will tear a gash into the Colts secondary.

Josh Freeman is a gamer who can certainly lead the Buccaneers passed the all but defeated Colts.


Shonn Greene

Shonn Greene has had a tough season so far. He was a focal point of the offense last season.

This season he has fallen off a bit. Greene will need to put in a big performance against a defense that has been very strong against the run this season. They have let up the 25th most points against the run.

This means that Greene will have his day cut out for him but he will perform under the pressure and get his season started.


Joe Flacco

Joe Flacco will need to pass into Jets coverage that has the likes of Antonio Cromartie and Darelle Revis.

The Jets have given up the least amount of points to quarterbacks this season and it is going to be an extremely tough match up for Joe Flacco.

So why start him against a match up that seems destined to stop him.

Flacco has the big arm threat and has proven that he can handle pressure as games go deep into their life.

Joe Flacco will pick up much needed points in the final minutes of the game with his ability to throw beyond defenses to his great receiving core.

Flacco has 810 yards on the season and will throw for between 200 and 250 today and have at least two passes for scores.
