Cam – Cam and company are coming off a bye and taking on a team that struggles to stop the run. He has a combined 7 touchdowns in his last 2 games, and should keep the scoring momentum today.
Ryan – Ryan has thrown for 793 yards and 8 touchdowns over his last 2 games. He’s takes on a Pittsburgh team who’s defense is ranked 30th in the league overall and 29th against the pass. Ryan should light this secondary up.
Goff – This offense is the most explosive in the league. He’s gone over 350 yards his last 3 games, and has compiled 9 td’s to just 2 int’s. This Seattle defense is nothing even close to who they were, and just lost their best defender last week.
Cousins – Philly struggles to cover WR1 and WR2, and with the volume that should come from the passing game today (Cook is likely out) Cousins could have another 400+ yard game. He’s played extremely well on the road, throwing for almost 850 yards and 7 touchdowns.
Other I’m ok with
Gurley – No need to much analysis. #1 running back, against a bad rush defense. He’s just expensive.
Gordon/Ekeler – Both of these guys have been targeted in the red zone more than anyone on this team. Ekeler has been a nice change of pace to Gordon. Gordon has scored in his last 3 games, and has scored 23 or more points 3 out of 4 weeks on FanDuel.
McCaffrey – Giants struggle with the run and he’s coming off a 184 effort and a bye. His usage has been trending up, and Carolina who filter their offense through Cam and CMC.
DJ – He’s still priced way too cheap on FanDuel. San Fran was 32 against the run last year, and they really haven’t improved since. He’s scored double digits on FanDuel 3 out of 4 weeks.
Others I’m ok with
Diggs/Thielen – See Cousins……These Guys should eat this defense alive today.
AB/JuJu – Atlanta is the most Injured defense in the league and now have to take on this 2 headed monster. We always like Pittsburgh skill guys at home, and this weeks feels like one of those where AB should explode.
Tate – Target monster, and has always been good at home.
Boyd – John Ross is out so his 4-6 targets should filter through Boyd and AJ. Miami has been burned through the air, and Boyd has been one of the hardest guys to cover this year.
Landry – with more stability now at QB, Landry is finally getting the targets we all expected. He finally got in the end zone last week, and I think he scores again this week. Baltimore is not as good as they may seem, and he can exploit this defense.
Jeffery – Alshon has destroyed this Vikings defense, going back to when he was in Chicago. He saw 9 targets in his first game back last week, going for over 100 yards and score. This Vikings secondary is a bit banged up, so he could have his way today.
J. Nelson – Maybe is because he’s not playing with a hall of game quarterback anymore, but Jordy hasn’t had any love so far this year. He’s been very good over his past 2 games, getting in the box in each other them and going for over 200 yards. Against a leaky Chargers defense who gives up points, I love this spot for him.
Others I’m ok with
Ertz – Minnesota has really struggled to cover tight ends this year. Wentz leans on his tight ends heavily, so Ertz should be involved early and often.
Cook – He’s seen double digit targets twice already this year, and he’s coming off an 8 catch 110 yard game. Both of these defenses aren’t good, so we can expect a ton of points scored.
Uzomah – I said I was on Tyler Kroft during the podcast, but it seems Uzomah has passed Kroft on the depth chart. With Gio and Ross our, they’ll need all the weapons they can get against Miami.
