Afternoon only/4 pm – Week 5

Afternoon only/4pm –  Week 5

Green Bay Packers vs Dallas Cowboys (Cowboys -2.5, O/U 52.5)

Oakland Raiders vs Baltimore Ravens (Raiders -3, O/U 40.5)

L.A. Rams vs Seattle Seahawks (Rams -2, O/U 47)

Quarterbacks

Dak Prescott, Aaron Rodgers and Russell Wilson

It’s going to be very hard for me to pull the trigger on any of the other three QBs playing in the afternoon game. I find myself landing on Prescott more than anyone based on his price. He has one less point than Rodgers over the past two weeks with similar game logs. Wilson is probably the most contrarian of the three.

Prescott is in most of my lineups

Running Back

Todd Gurley, Ezekiel Elliott

Trying my best to get Zeke in Gurley together in as many lineups as I can. This is pretty easy on Fanduel. On DK almost impossible to do and get Rodgers. I mix in some Marshawn Lynch in a few of them.

Aaron Jones, Alex Collins, Thomas Rawls, Buck Allen are low end options

If paying up at wide receiver could mix in some of these guys. They all make me nervous as they are splitting carries. If I knew the Seahawks were committed to Rawls would like him the best. Or, if the Ravens said we are giving Collins 15-20 carries would be all in on him.

Wide Receiver

Dez Bryant is a lock on DraftKings and get him in on Fanduel if you can

He finally gets a matchup versus a below average secondary. He has had some tough matchups to start the year. Davante Adams or Michael Crabtree will be lower owned pivots.

All Packers wide receivers, Randall Cobb more on Fanduel, Adams more on DK

Doug Baldwin always in play for me

Sammy Watkins, Cooper Kupp, and Roberts Woods, some cheaper options for GPPs

Paul Richardson and Mike Wallace for GPP play

 

Tight End

 

Martellius Bennett and Jason Witten will be popular as they should be

Jared Cook is mixed in with the above two, I have about 25% of each. No stand outs

Jimmy Graham I have a few shares of for his upside

Defense

 

I am all over the Oakland defense. (See my main slate article) They are in 75%+ of my lu

Baltimore Ravens are mixed in a few as I have started to like them more, thinking about them facing E.J. Manuel

 

QB – More Dak than anyone

RB – Zeke and Gurley on FD, one of them and a lower priced option on DK

WR – Dez on DK, Cobb on FD, Adams hopefully low owned, Jordy for upside

Baldwin lower owned than Dez and GB wide outs

Watkins GPP play

TE – Pick one to pair with your QB or mix em up

Def – Mostly Oakland

Kicker on Fanduel – Truly think all of them are in play
