Welcome to week 8 my fantasy freaks! Going to be a fun slate of games. Let's dive right in!
Jameis Winston - $5,700 - vs Oak - Winston's already proved he has 30 point upside this year. Now he gets to face the Raiders D, who are giving up the 7th most points to QBs on the season. Even if he just puts up his average game, 19 points, he's a great value!
David Johnson - $7,700 - @Car - It just doesn't matter who he is facing, his lowest game is 15 points this year. He gets all the carries and averages over 6 targets per game. Just lock him in.
Devontae Booker - $3,700 - vs SD - With C.J. Anderson being placed on IR, it's Booker time. The chargers are terrible against the run and he's $3,700. Just start your lineup with him this week.
Tournament Picks (GPP)
Christine Michael - $7,300 - @NO
Spencer Ware - $6,800 - @Ind
Julio Jones - $9,600 - vs GB - The best receiver in football, Jones is averaging 11+ targets per game over the last 4 weeks. The Falcons get the highest projected team total of the week and Julio should lead the charge.
Mike Evans - $8,100 - vs Oak - The Target Monster, the King of Targets, Target City... we'll work on it. Evans is the league leader in targets per game at 12+. The Bucs basically have no one else at WR and the Raiders give up the 5th most points to WRs. He good.
Tournament Picks (GPP)
Brandon Marshall - $7,800 - @Cle - GPP ONLY - I always love to target WRs against the Browns, but the Jets QB situation has been a mess. Through this all, he's averaging 9.7 tagets per game. His price keeps him as a GPP pick, as I'd rather pay up for Evans and Julio in cash.
Doug Baldwin - $6,900 - @NO
Donte Moncrief - $5,400 - vs KC - He's making a sneaky comeback this week and has the big play upside in this game that could win a GPP.
Cordarrelle Patterson - $3,300 - @Chi - Check his health (concussion), but his targets are up and he will be very low owned on the Monday slate.
J.J. Nelson - $3,000 - @Car - If John Brown and Michael Floyd are both out, Nelson stands to gain a ton of targets.
Jimmy Graham - $6,100 - @NO - REVENGE GAME!
Kyle Rudolph - $3,500 - @Chi - You know how many players average 8+ targets per game and are $3,500 or less? 1, Kyle Rudolph.
C.J. Fiedorowicz - $2,800 - vs Det - C.J. week! He's gotten at least 7 targets in each of the last 3 games. And the Lions are terrible against TEs.
Vikings - $4,100 - @Chi
Broncos - $3,700 - vs SD
Jets - $3,400 - @Cle
