Place kicker

Rian Lindell, Tampa Bay Buccaneers vs. Miami Dolphins

Lindell has been solid lately but hasn't lit the fantasy world ablaze. The Bucs' offense has some life with quarterback Mike Glennon, and Lindell has knocked them through at an 84.6 percent clip on the year. Even if Lindell just matches the averages Miami is permitting, he is still a quality fantasy option.

Kai Forbath, Washington Redskins at Minnesota Vikings

The last month has been anything but kind to Forbath. He has gone 2-for-4 from distance and had two kicks blocked in Week 9. While that is anomalous, it's easy to pass over him on the wire until you note the matchup ahead of him.

Defensive team

Buffalo Bills at Pittsburgh Steelers

This one is all about what the Steelers have given up to defenses lately. Their offense cannot hold onto the ball and keep Ben Roethlisberger upright. Buffalo has reached the quarterback 11 times in the last month.

New York Giants vs. Oakland Raiders

New York started to show something on D in their two games before going on vacation for a week. The Raiders' offense has been hit or miss of late, but they are likely to be without running back Darren McFadden (hamstring) and possibly quarterback Terrelle Pryor (knee).
