Another day another fantasy dollar if you played my week 6 lineup… the cash line was 118 points and change, so we weren’t sweating this one. On the strength of monster performances from Deshaun Watson, Jarvis Landry and the Baltimore defense we live to play another week. As we head into week 7, I have a bunch of ground to cover as I’m going to offer several options at each position, while telling you who I’m most likely to play. Let’s get it on!!
- WEEK 1 – 144 points – CASHED
- WEEK 2 – 93 points – Not Good
- WEEK 3 – 135 points – CASHED
- WEEK 4 – 130 points – CASHED – you know I did
- WEEK 5 – 88 points – All time low
- WEEK 6 – 131 points – CASHED – just above sweet spot
QUARTERBACK – The Brady Bunch
Hands down Brady on paper is the best play of the week, but he’s also the most expensive QB on FD. He will have a boatload of pass attempts, and this game has shootout written all over it. Pass catching RBs like Dion Lewis and James White will be a huge factor as well. Anything less than 3 TDs and 300 yards would be a let down.
Carson Wetnz – as much as I like Brady Wentz for $7800 is the cheapest 20 points money can by at the QB position. The Eagles are at home on Monday night, all WRs are healthy and still no running game in Philly. Get some!!
Tyrod Taylor for $7000 should get up to 18 points which is the value you’re looking for. His running ability could get him over the top but that’s not guaranteed. What is guaranteed is that he’s cheap with a favorable matchup hosting Tampa Bay and he’ll have a good shot at hitting. Make him work in your roster if you want to go big somewhere else.
RUNNING BACK – Cooler Than Coleman
There are a lot great RB possibilities so feel free to mix and match, here are a few I love.
Tevin Coleman $6400 – The DFS world love Coleman and the 10 carries, and 5 targets he’ll get in prime time. Cole had 25 fantasy points in his last game against the Patriots, and will get a ton of volume in high success rate scenarios. I don’t think the New England defense has an answer for Coleman’s speed either.
Adrian Peterson $6300 – His floor is clearly set at 16 touches which is super tempting. His upside at this price is greater than any RB who’s playing this week
Ezekiel Elliot $8700 – I like this price if you can only afford either Elliot or Bell. San Francisco has one of the worst run defenses in the league. He is a cash game staple for me this week.
Le’Veon Bell – $9700 – it’s too much money in my opinion, as Bell has to get just over 24 points to hit value. That’s a tall order for a RB coming off two really great outings. The offense runs through him and I think HC Mike Tomlin has figured it out.
Alvin Kamara – $6100 – love him this week at Green Bay. Good for another 12-15 touches, at that price??? It’s a steal
WIDE RECEIVERS – Funchess in Bunches
Devin Funchess has averaged just over 8 targets a game over his last three, and could be getting more if Kelvin Benjamin is out. Just promise you’ll consider it.
Pierre Garcon – yes he’s target machine and the Cowboys give 250 pass yards per game. Sounds like a good cash game fit if you ask me.
Jarvis Landry – all he does is catch passes. I’m hoping for another high volume day against the Jets. The TD last week was really helpful.
What Can Brown Do For You? – Antonio Brown is far and away the best receiving option every week. He’ll cost you, but it’s usually worth it. I like his chances against Cincy this weekend.
TIGHTENDS – Love Ertz
He’s the most targeted TE so far thus season, and nightmare matchup for LBs. There’s no need to complicate something that’s quite simple… roll with Ertz.
Jimmy Graham, Evan Ingram, Austin Sefarian Jenkins. Cameron Brate are all viable options. So is Gronk!!
DEFENSE – Minnesota Vikings.
The Baltimore offense it trifling – I’m rolling out the Vikings defense based on that. They are also home, and they have some legit weapons on defense as well of offense.
Good Luck Gamers.
