There is more GPP goodness in this week’s slate than in any other I can remember this season. There are back ups playing due to benchings… back ups playing due to SUSPENSIONS… and backups playing due to injuries… backups for everyone. There is a bunch of low dollar value everywhere – EVERYWHERE!!! So don’t get caught up, because there are dozens of combination rabbit trails you could go on. Try to cover as many bases as possible. I don’t know who to go with this week, so I want to encourage you to have a little fun and pick your shots with the lowest of expectations as I outline value plays at each position. Check out these super sneaky ninja picks.
Carson Wentz $7400 vs Washington – don’t forget about where he Wentz. The would be MVP from 2017 will go off for 4-5 TD game at some point. This could be the week.
Colt McCoy $6800 at Philadelphia – he throws, he runs, he’s got weapons and he’s playing from behind. Anyone who touches the ball 60 time per game and is under $7K should be considered.
Josh Allen $6800 at Miami – he runs and he’s fired up at criticism. Buffalo has an outside shot at a wild card so they will put forth a decent effort on the road.
Derek Carr $6600 vs Kansas City – this is a sure-fire GPP play. You saw what Goff did to the Chiefs right… Carr is at home, and will be playing catchup for the whole game. Look for 3 TDs and 265 yards.
Jeff Driskel $6400 vs Denver – check last week’s stats – he was a thrower. He will have weapons, including a running game and AJ Green is coming back. Playing at home after a comfortable week of practice could be valuable
Spencer Ware – $5200 at Oakland – Kareem Hunt’s going all Ike Turner will afford DFS gamers the opportunity to make some major cash here. VALUE everywhere. Let me take this opportunity to say that Kareem Hunt is an even bigger idiot than all the other domestic violence perps that paved the way before him. I can’t wait to use his pathetic example as a prime example of idiocy for my children… soap box over.
Carlos Hyde – $5000 vs Indianapolis – feature back in Jacksonville thanks to Leonard Fournette doing his best Apollo Creed impression — $5K for 20 touches the numbers line up.
Buck Allen – $4600 at Atlanta – Alex Collins just went on the IR. This could be very sneaky rise out of the ashes type of ninja pick… give him a shot
Chris Godwin $5400 vs Carolina – No DeSean Jackson – huge bump here
Michael Crabtree $5400 at Atlanta – Early favorite of Lamar Jackson – great price
Damaryius Thomas $5300 vs Cleveland – #2 in Houston – and a complete WR
Randall Cobb – $5300 vs Arizona – I believe A-rod goes off in an angry way knowing that they are NOT going to beat up on a team like this again this season.
Kenny Stills – $5200 vs Buffalo – they are going to get him the ball more and Tannehill looks good
Seth Roberts – $5200 vs Kansas City – I like the Carr/Roberts stack in GPP only. Who can cover him.
Eric Ebron $5600 at Jacksonville – 11 TDs in 11 games — that’s high ceiling medium floor
Cameron Brate $4900 vs Carolina – this is exceptional value, especially with DeSean Jackson on the bench.
DEFENSE — I’m rolling with only four of these defenses.
Broncos at Cincinnati
Packers vs Arizona
Titans vs New York Jets
Buffalo at Miami
**** GOOD LUCK GAMERS*****
