Tom Brady - $7,900 - @Pit - Brady has been the best point per dollar fantasy quarterback on the planet so far through his 2 games. That isn't likely to stop this week either. At Pittsburgh, the Patriots have the 4th highest projected team total on the week. With all the value coming into play this week, it's making it a lot easier to pay up for Brady. His high floor and ceiling combo easily make him the best QB.
Andy Dalton - $6,000 - vs Cle - Opposing QBs have averaged 24.8 DK points against the Browns this season. Four of those QBs have been Cousins, Tannehill, Flacco, and Wentz...not exactly the Elite class in the NFL. Dalton put up 21.9 DK points last week at the Patriots. Now he gets the Browns, at home, with the 3rd highest projected team total. And he's $6,000! Just play him.
Kirk Cousins - $5,900 - @Det - Cousins makes for a great pivot from Dalton this week. The Lions have allowed the most fantasy points to QBs on the year. The Vegas line just shot up this morning for Washington too.
DeMarco Murray - $7,200 - vs Ind - He played 95% of the snaps last week, proving Derrick Henry is not a threat. Murray now gets the Colts, at home. Indy has allowed the 2nd most fantasy points to RBs on the year. Only 4 more backs are averaging more attempts per game than Murray, and he gets more targets than all of them! His team is the favorite, at home, and he'll get ALL the touches. Load him up!
Jacquizz Rodgers - $4,300 - @SF - Doug Martin is out this week, and Rodgers steps in once again. He got all the work last week with 30 carries for 101 yards. He also tacked on 5 catches, which is as good as gold on DK. The 49ers have allowed an average of 128 yards and 1.6 TDs to lead backs over the last 5 games. Go lock in him your lineup right now!
Mike Gillislee - $3,000 - @Mia - If LeSean McCoy is out this week, Gillislee becomes the starting RB. Anytime you get a starting running at $3k, you play him!
Zach Zenner - $3,500 - vs Was - If McCoy plays, it'll knock down Gillislee's value. Pivot to Zenner, whose the only healthy back they have besides newly acquired Justin Forsett.
Julio Jones - $9,200 - vs SD - He's proved he literally has 50 point upside. The Falcons are projected to score over 30 points (most I can remember this year for any team). Load up on Julio.
A.J. Green - $8,600 - vs Cle - He's been boom or bust this year, and that will likely keep some people off of him this week. That's a mistake. He's averaged over 10 targets per game and it's against the Browns. Added bonus: Joe Haden is doubtful this week for his matchup with Green. Start your lineup building with him!
Allen Robinson - $7,300 - vs Oak - Robinson hasn't been the top 5 PPR monster he was last year, but he's still seeing 9.4 targets per game. Oakland has given up the 2nd most points to WRs this year. Most people are going to pay $500 more for Mike Evan this week. With that Bucs projected team total continuing to drop, I'll take the savings and get Robinson in my lineup!
Pierre Garcon - $3,700 - @Det - If DeSean Jackson is out this week, Garcon will see all the targets. He's $3.7k and a near lock for double digit targets.
Broncos - $3,800 - vs Hou - The Broncos are my top D of the week if you are playing a slate with Monday's game. The Texans have been terrible lately and are projected for just 16.5 points. The Broncos are 2nd in the league with 3.5 sacks per game, and the Texans are allowing 7.7 QB hits per game. Load up!
Vikings - $3,700 - @Phi - The top D on the Sunday only slate. The Vikes continue to impress and now get to tee off against a rookie QB. They should continue to force turnover and shut down the Philly offense.
Bills - $3,400 - @Mia - If you have to save $300 from the Vikes, I like the Bills this week against the 'Phins. They offer up a great matchup with 3.3 sacks per game, 2.3 takeaways, and Miami allowing over 7 QB hits per game.
Cardinals - $3,000 - vs Sea
49ers - $2,500 - vs TB - That Bucs team total continues to move down, having dropped 2.5 points now. This will be a sneaky GPP play since everyone is loading up on Mike Evans and Jacquizz Rodgers. It's not that safe, but they're cheap and could be a difference maker in winning tournaments!
