We'll just call this a rebound week.
 
  
James Hatfield

Can lighting strike twice? I believe it can.
  
Derek Lofland
Fantasy Football Maniax
Thomas finished with just 4 receptions for 48 yards, but had a a team-high 11 targets. He should be ready to roll as a WR1 against a poor KC secondary.
 
  
Jon Collins
Fantasy Sports LR
 
It is hard to ignore a 15 target outing in his first contest with Joe Flacco and the Ravens offense.
