Hey folks, I'm back from my brief hiatus -- the sniffles are no match for Powerade Zero and condensed chicken noodle soup. Anyways, big ups to Chris Lemieux for stepping in last week to give you all some sound advice on some D/STs worth taking a look at for your fantasy football team. This week, it's all about those daily fantasy lineups. As a matter of fact, I'm going to give you a lineup that brings about the sounds of jingles; Not bells, but straight change, homie.

Blake Bortles at $7,900

Bortles against an Atlanta defense that rolled over and gave up 38 points to the Carolina Panthers last week should be a lock for quite the performance this week. Although Bortles will be without T.J. Yeldon for this matchup, Denard "Shoelace" Robinson has shown in the past that he can be productive in doses. I believe in Bortles, and you should too.

Charcandrick West at $5,900

With fellow running back Spencer Ware suffering from "separated cartilage in his ribs," look for West to receive the bulk of the carries for the Chiefs today against a painfully average Ravens' defense.

Jeremy Hill at $6,000

Hill had seven carries and two catches last week, only the third game of the 2015 season where he's had less than ten touches in a game. It certainly didn't help that the Bengals were caught scrambling from behind last week with their backup A.J. McCarron having to take over for Andy Dalton. With Dalton still out, look for the Bengals to rely on the talent they have in their backfield to make McCarron's transition into the starting role as easy as possible.

DeAndre Hopkins at $8,700

I like Hopkins this week after having a down week against the Patriots in Week 14. Even though the wideout has been relatively kept in check over the past three weeks, I expect the Texans and Colts game to be a high scoring affair, and Hopkins to emerge from this slump in a similar fashion to the way Steelers' wide receiver Antonio Brown used the Colts and Vontae Davis to wash away the memory of the previous week's matchup against the Seahawks and Richard Sherman.

Allen Robinson at $8,100

You have Bortles as your quarterback, so cash-in on this double dip like a young George Constanza. Robinson is coming off of his worst performance of 2015, just one catch for four yards and a touchdown, but like Hopkins, I expect his matchup in Week 15 to allow him to bounce back and have a big week.

John Brown at $6,300

If you watched the Lions take on the Eagles on Thanksgiving Day, you know that the Eagles secondary is about as awful as awful can be. The Cardinals might score a hundred points tonight on Sunday Night Football, and I think it's in play for Collinsworth and Michaels to spend the entire broadcast gushing over this offense. John Brown is totally a candidate to haul in three balls, but with his ability to move after the catch, he could end up breaking a couple of those catches for big gains and possibly scores.

Greg Olsen at $6,800

After being listed as probable all week, Greg Olsen will be active and the most reliable receiving option for Cam Newton. Olsen will attempt to join Charles Clay, Benjamin Watson, and Rob Gronkowski as tight ends who have all burned the Giants for at least 100 yards through the air this season.

Nick Novak at $4,500

He's indoors.

Seattle Seahawks at $5,400

It's going to be a tough day for Johnny Manziel today in Seattle. Turnovers aplenty.
