What’s up fellow degens?!
I’m back for another week of trying to take down a GPP on DraftKings. This week it’s going to be tough to find good pivot plays. The slate is short again, thanks to byes and that damn London Game. On top of that everyone is targeting two games SEA/TB and DET/OAK … with good reason.
The pricing this week is tough as well and based on how contests are filling now, I’d say a lot of the casual players aren’t playing this deep into the season. The field won’t be as soft.
With that, let’s get to the slate and win some cold hard cash this week by using Daily Roto projections to leverage the field.
The Chalk: DangeRuss Wilson $7100, Stafford $6800
The Pivot: Rivers $5100
Rivers had a tough matchup last week against the Bears with two TDs dropped. Also, Chargers just fired the O coordinator.
This matchup is going to be a lot easier for old man Rivers and he’s had 5 games this year with at least 300 and 2 TDs. I’m banking on the new O Coordinator not handing the ball off to inefficient Gordon. I love Rivers to hit the bonus and go for 3 TDs this week.
The Chalk: CMC $10k, Cook $9500, Chubb $7300, Samuels $4000
Josh Jacobs $6500
In a week where everyone is going to try and fit at least one of the high priced options in their lineup. I think this price point will go overlooked in roster construction. Jacobs has a great matchup the Lions rank 26th in the league against the run. He dropped his injury tag Friday so he’s healthy and once again he gets almost all the touches. Give me a workhorse back in a great matchup favored at home.
Mark Walton $4500
He was initially going to be chalky this week but with Conner going out, all the ownership is going to flow to Samuels. I honestly don’t see the upside of fading him at all.
When chalk like him will be on the slate, you still have to make a stand, so it’s either overweight the field or fade him. I’d fade him at your own peril. But if you do, here’s your guy … unsexy as they come but getting the touches against an awful Jets D.
The Chalk: Godwin $7300, Evans $7200, Lockett $7500, Metcalk $5700
Davante Adams $7100
Adams is coming back this week and I saw him hurdle a trainer today during warm ups. I think his toe is fine.
Wow excited will Rodgers be to have him back? Adams is going to get peppered with targets against a depleted Chargers secondary.
Allen Robinson $6800
I get it Trashbiski, but you can’t ignore ARob’s talent and volume. The past 3 games, he’s gotten 31 targets and turned that into 22 rec, 1 TD and over 240 yds.
Who does he get this week? The worst secondary in league, the Eagles. Even with Mitch, ARob will feast.
The Chalk: Waller $6300, Henry $6000
The Pivot: Jack Doyle $3000
Tight ends are absolutely disgusting this week. I feel like Doyle is the lone cheap bright spot.
With TY out, I expect Jacoby to lean on Doyle more. He had 5 targets last week if he can get 7-9 this week, he’ll have no problem paying off his salary. Pittsburgh has a solid defense but Jacoby makes good decisions and will use Doyle as his outlet valve.
The Chalk: Skins $1800, Bills $3800
The Pivot: CAR $2800
When everyone is on the the cheapest defense, it’s definitely worth the fade. Especially with Haskins starting, I can’t imagine him putting his defense in a good position with a lot of short fields.
The Titans have been playing better but Tannehill is the still the starter. TANNEHILL! Have we all forgotten how terrible he is?
