Steve Johnson @ Dolphins:

After a hot start to the season, Steve Johnson just hasn’t been the same player since Week 3, as the Bills have relied more on the feet of Fred Jackson to win games. Quarterback Ryan Fitzpatrick finally hooked up with Johnson on a deep route against the Jets a few weeks ago, but a case of the flu and a shoulder injury limited Johnson to an ineffective stat line in the team's loss to the Cowboys.

Johnson is, of course, a must-hold on any roster, but it’s time to consider him a bench this week, unless you are thin at the receiver position. Keep an eye on Johnson’s status this week, as he’s listed as day to day early in the week with his shoulder ailment. For what it’s worth, I wouldn’t be surprised if Johnson plays as he’s a gamer, and he could have success against the Dolphins, but unfortunately, top corner Vontae Davis should be in the lineup.

If he should put in a full practice by Friday, get him in the lineup as a WR-3—unless you happen to have a deep receiving core or you recently picked someone like Laurent Robinson to replace him.

Danny Woodhead vs. Chiefs:

Quietly, Danny Woodhead has been the top running back in the Patriots' backfield in the past two weeks. While Woodhead isn’t a worthy play in standard leagues, he’s a flex play option in PPR leagues. It seemed Woodhead’s fantasy value was all but washed up when Kevin Faulk returned a few weeks ago, and while I wouldn’t hold out hope for a big game against the Chiefs this week, Woodhead should help you through the final bye week.

Look for New England to make quick work of a Chiefs team that will be without starting quarterback Matt Cassel, and they should run the football up to 40 times in this blowout victory.
