Back on track and we are having a hot week. Who’s excited to get into this weeks notables?! Remember, notables are players that could help you with your budget and have a chance of going off.
Cardinals vs Vikings
Notables – JJ Nelson 5800
Kyle Rudolph 4900
With Diggs being covered by top 3 cornerback Patrick Peterson, Rudolph should see lots of work. Thielen was a mentionable last week and he had a great game. He is truly a flier this week as well and is insanely cheap. JJ Nelson might see some of Xaviar Rhodes, the best cornerback in the league currently, and if he doesn’t I won’t expect much. But if not look for the deep ball.
Bills vs Bengals
Notables – Tyrod Taylor 7300
Tyler Boyd 4500
I know. I know. I know. I said I wasn’t going to tout Tyrod or put him down but I really think he is going to be a great pickup this week. Bengals D isn’t what they were last year and T Mobile can pick it up with his legs as well. Tyler Boyd has been underwhelming but has been seeing a lot more targets lately. Look for a slant in the redzone.
Bears vs Giants
Notables – Rashad Jennings 5600
Cameron Meredith 5600
Alshon used PEDs. Alshon got suspended. Cutler ruined every analyst last week but watch Meredith have a great game this week. Jennings came to LIFE last week and could go again against a solid but beatable Bears Defense. Both are flex options.
Steelers vs Browns
Here’s the paragraph. Browns are the worst team in the league and that’s no surprise. But they score points. Steelers are going to be airing it out so Brown and Eli Rogers are going to have amazing games. Then once they are up enough, Bell will run it out with his legs. The Browns on the other hand will have 0 run game but Pryor will see a heck of a lot of work. I’m starting him and Barnidge in my lineups this week. The Browns hate the Steelers and are desperate for a win, expect a decent game.
Buccaneers vs Chiefs
Notables – Tyreke Hill 5400
Chiefs Defense 5000
Maclin is looking like he will be out. Sidelined at practice on Friday and that leaves Tyreke Hill open and ready for a big game against one of the worst defenses in the league. Chiefs D is top 3 and may give up some points to a red hot Jameis but I predict a lot of sacks and at least a pick. Start them. Brate has been a monster but the Chiefs are number one against the tight end. Don’t start him.
Ravens vs Cowboys
No real notables here. Dak and Zeke are always worthy of a start but Ravens Defense is actually really tough. Toughness can’t beat insane star power and hot streaks though so I wouldn’t even start them. I dont see the Ravens getting more than 10 points as their offense looks awful. Dixon is starting to take over the backfield so get ready to get rid of T West soon.
Jaguars vs Lions
Notables – Blake Bortles 7200
Theo Riddick 6700
Bortles will do his usual -2 points first half and 20 points second half so he’s always a solid DFS play. Riddick is ridic-ulous and was a nice surprise this year. Jags defense isn’t awful but I can’t see them stopping this pass catching RB. Expect a big big game.
Titans vs Colts
Notables – Donte Moncrief 6500
Kendall Wright 4700
Wright has been more boom than bust and he’s so freaking cheap. How can you not take a chance especially with the Titans being one of the most powerful offenses in the league. Moncrief is the 1A of this team and he’s been proving it. He always seems to be open and is a favorite target of Luck. Watch out for Jack Doyle this week as well.
Dolphins vs Rams
Notables – Kenny Britt 6800
Jared Goff is starting. The box will be stacked. Gurley is going to have a rough day. Goff even worse. Or maybe I’m completely wrong! I want nothing to do with this game because I only have Goffs awful preseason to go off of. Remember… this is a guy that couldn’t beat out Case Keenum nor Shaun Mannion.
Patriots vs 49ers
Notables – Legarrette Blount 7300
Colin Kaepernick 7000
Blount is going to be the number 2 RB this week. Mark my words. Martellus Bennett the number 1 tight end. Mark my words. Kaepernick is an awful QB but will have to throw a lot because Pats run d is actually good. Mark my words.
Eagles vs Seahawks
Notables – Russel Wilson 7400
Cj Prosise 4900
Prosise will be the lead back(rep wise) while Rawls is getting situated back. Prosise will remain the passing down RB regardless and could be in for a big game. Russel is a second half of the year QB and has been absolutely on fire. Eagles defense is tough but Seahawks offense is tougher.
BIG DAWG TO START OF THE WEEK!!!!
Miami Defense – Number one defense this week and has been averaging 6 points per week the last 4 weeks(I believe).
BIG DAWG TO SIT OF THE WEEK!!!!
Carlos Hyde – Injury prone against a Patriots team that will make them throw the whole game. He is merely touchdown dependent.
BOLD PICK OF THE WEEK!!!!
Already stated, if Gronk is indeed out, Bennett will be the TE 1 of the week.
