DFS Visionary Plays for Week 10
Dak Prescott—No Zeke means it’s Dak’s team and if the Cowboys are going to win, he’s going to have to put up numbers. I might roll with a naked Dak this week on DK as I am not sold on Dez or any one particular Cowboy player but I think there will be points scored in this one.
Jared Goff—Vegas has this game at 46 points and the Rams are a 11.5-point favorite which means they are going to score. The Texans have let up only one rushing TD this season. This means that either Vegas is incredibly wrong (yeah right) or that Goff throws three TDs. I will go with the latter.
Ben Roethlisberger—Bell should run amok this week, so I see Ben being more effective than high scoring. His floor should be 225 yards and two passing TDs. He makes for a great cash game pick.
Ryan Fitzpatrick—Did you know that the Jets are road favorites in this one? I am not buying that, and I think that Fitz has a much better week than people expect. I am thinking 230 yards and two TDs which could be 4x his price.
Le’Veon Bell—Easiest play of the week as I expect 125+ rushing yards and at least one TD.
Jordan Howard—You know that the Bears want him to carry it at least 20-25 times. If he can make just one or two big plays he could easily go for 90+ yards in what should be a boring ground and pound affair.
Bilal Powell—The Bucs cannot stop the run and Matt Forte has been ruled out which makes Powell a must play for me on DK.
Carlos Hyde—Hyde showed that he could catch the ball out of the backfield last week and I expect that the 49ers will use him once again in that capacity with Kittle and Taylor out. He could easily eclipse 20 DK points in what will be a higher scoring game than most people expect.
A.J. Green—Green was humiliated against the Jaguars and I think he wants to show the world how good a player he really is. Logan Ryan and Adore Jackson are completely overmatched in this one. Green gets 100+ yards and a TD.
Cooper Kupp—The Texans are tough against the run and Sammy Watkins has literally made one play in the past three games. This means that the points will have to come from somewhere. Last week was a Robert Woods week–this week will belong to Cooper Kupp.
Sterling Shepard—The 49ers secondary has been one of the most generous in the NFL. Shepard should dominate in this game so long as Ben McAdoo doesn’t get crazy and pull Eli Manning out in the second half.
Mohamed Sanu—Vegas thinks that the Falcons/Cowboys game is going to be high scoring (as do I), but I have little trust in Julio Jones after last week’s debacle. Dallas is known to be extra generous to WR2’s and I expect Matt Ryan and Sanu to take advantage of that.
Cameron Brate—Morris Claiborne will shadow DeSean Jackson and Adam Humphries is nothing more than a decent slot receiver. Enter Cameron Brate who is the Bucs best weapon in the red zone. The Jets have allowed six TDs to TE this season including four in their last five games (only Nick O’Leary failed to score). Harvard finds Harvard this week as Fitz goes to Brate for an easy score.
Kyle Rudolph—Norman will shadow Diggs which should leave the middle of the field open for Rudolph. Add to the fact that the Redskins are the 4th worst team in covering the TE and Rudolph is a great value this week in cash games
Garrett Celek—The Giants have let up a receiving TD to a TE in every game this season. Celek is $2500 on DK. I can easily see him going 4x and his cheap price will allow you to get other studs into your lineup.
Rob Gronkowski (FD Only)—Lock Gronk in on FD as the Broncos are free falling and cannot stop the TE.
