QUARTERBACKS

Kirk Cousins – Feel like he has higher upside than Dak Prescott.

Dak Prescott – Only considering two QBs on this slate and Prescott is the other one.

Joe Flacco – Would be a deep GPP play only

Tom Savage – Don’t play him please

 

RUNNING BACKS

Samaje Perine – With Chris Thompson hurt, it’s Perine’s backfield now. Has 23 and 24 carries past two games with over 100 yards rushing in each. Favorite running back on the slate.

Lamar Miller – Running back is weak on this slate. I don’t love Miller, but he is your next best option.

Alex Collins and Danny Woodhead – Should be lower owned than the above two. The Texans run defense scares me though. Like Woodhead to be involved in the passing game.

Cowboys running backs – Least favorite on the slate, I guess Alfred Morris if you want to punt.

 

WIDE RECEIVERS

Jamison Crowder – Had seven catches for 141 yards and a TD last week. He’s the de facto number one wide receiver now on the Skins.

DeAndre Hopkins – Too bad his QB sucks. However, he has scored double-digit fantasy points the past few games with Savage.

Jeremy Maclin/Mike Wallace – I could see one of them getting in the end zone. Maybe hedge one lineup with one and another lineup with the other.

Wide receiver is relatively deep compared to the other positions on this slate.

 

TIGHT ENDS

Vernon Davis – Was playing well before last week, when he had zero catches on one target. Look for him to bounce back this week.

The other three starting tight ends are crap shoots imo. I prefer Ben Watson over Jason Witten and C.J. Fiedorowicz but wouldn’t blame you for playing any of the three.

 

DEFENSE

Baltimore RavensMy clear favorite defense on the slate, and not just because I am a Ravens fan. They play well at home and should do well against an inexperienced Tom Savage.

I don’t mind the Houston Texans defense if you would rather pay down.

 

KICKERS – Fanduel only

Justin Tucker – We finally have a clear-cut best kicker on these mini-slates. Fire him up with confidence at home with an offense that tends to stall.
