Winston – Saints secondary has been better over the past couple weeks, but Winston has too many weapons at his disposal. It’s looking like there may be some weather early in this game, then taper off in the 2nd half. The Saints should get ahead in this game as well, so expect Winston to throw 40-50 times.
Allen – His ability to extend plays is really impressive. He’s rusher for 234 yards over the past 2 weeks, while also developing a pretty good relationship with Receiver Zay Jones. Allen is still very raw, but his running ability allows us to rack up points p points quickly.
Cam – always in play against defenses who struggle against the run. He hasn’t scored on the ground since week 7, but Cam gets in the box today. Seems like another Cam/CMC week.
Dak – At home, against a Philly team that looks like they’ve packed it in. Philly is 26th against the pass while Dak hasn’t thrown an interception since early November. He’s also getting into the end zone with his legs, which he did against this team in Philly a few weeks back.
CMC – bad run defense against the best back over the past 5 weeks.
Barkley – OBJ is out this week, so we could see another 15 target game for him. He’s gone over 100 3 straight games and should come close to over 30 touches today.
Lindsay – He’s looks explosive over the past 3 weeks, getting in the end zone 5 times while going over 100 yards rushing in 2 of those games. With the loss of Manny Sanders, Denver should control the game on the ground and let their defense work. We could see 20+ touches for Lindsay this week.
DJ – He’s had 20+ touches in 5 straight weeks, so the volume is there for DJ. He did get vultured on 2 touch downs last week, which I doubt will happen this week. He’s priced down on FanDuel at 7K, so upside as far as price is there.
Others I like
Shepard – OBJ is out this week, while he’s already seen 6 targets each of the last 2 games. Shepard was great last year when OBJ went down, and he should stay away from Norman being in the slot.
Cooper – Correlation with Dak here, and has been solid since his trade to Dallas. He been great at home while He’s seeing 8-10 targets consistently.
Sutton – Manny Sanders went down with an Achilles injury, so if there’s any week for Sutton to be a target hog it would be here. He’s been solid playing as a #2 in this offense, so he should see a nice bump in targets today.
Godwin – Anytime DeSean Jackson is out, Godwin seems to play extremely well. He did score in this matchup earlier in the year, and will be needed today to keep up with New Orleans scoring machine.
Others I like
Kelce – Absurd targets and dominance over the past 2 weeks. Looks like he’s taking the Kareem Hunt usage.
Brate – Winston’s favorite red zone target. He gets one today.
Ebron – 16 targets last week, which could happen again with Hilton possibly out this week.
