I got held up with kids today. I am just going to list the players I like so you can make lineups. Will fill in commentary when I get a chance.

The Fuego Pit

I am slightly changing the format for my write up this week. I will narrow down players to more of a core group of guys. If players aren’t listed here it doesn’t necessarily mean they are bad plays. It just means I will not have a ton of exposure to them. Obviously, studs like Antonio Brown, Kareem Hunt and Le’Veon Bell are always in play. If I really don’t like a high-end player this week, I will mention I am fading them. I will list some of the top tiered options and a few value plays or players I may have a few shares of. The players are the ones I will have the most exposure to in my main lineups. These are my favorite GPP plays of the week.

QUARTERBACKS

Kirk Cousins – good spot this week vs San Fran

Drew Brees – always destroys coming off bye

FADING – Deshaun Watson – due to ownership and think they get up and try run

Lower priced options

Kevin Hogan is only $4600 on DraftKings, Case Keenum

RUNNING BACKS

Lamar Miller – see above regarding Watson, great price on DK at $5400

Melvin Gordon

Leonard Fournette

Devonta Freeman

Lower priced options, mainly on DraftKings

Mark Ingram and Alvin Kamara – will have some shares of each

Samaje Perine – could get his chance this week if the Redskins get up

Jerrick McKinnon – will be chalky at only $4100 on DK

 

WIDE RECEIVERS

Davante Adams on DK, Randall Cobb on Fanduel

Adam Thielen – liked him even before no Diggs

Michael Thomas – on DraftKings

DeAndre Hopkins – on Fanduel

DeSean Jackson – Mike Evans faces Patrick Peterson

Chris Hogan – more on Fanduel

Lower priced targets

Marvin Jones, Jamison Crowder, Kenny Stills

TIGHT ENDS

Gronk – good week to pay up for him

Evan Engram – no one else to throw to for the Giants

Jordan Reed – have him paired with Cousins in some, like his upside and price

Cameron Brate – more on DK

Lower priced targets

Zach Miller – $2900 on DraftKings

Ryan Griiffin – min price on Fanduel

DEFENSE

Denver Broncos – only playable on Fanduel, should be chalk but not super high owned

Baltimore Ravens

Atlanta Falcons

Lower priced targets

I like to pay down for defense when I can, none of them are standing out to me this week.

KICKERS – Fanduel only

Pick one that fits your lineup. Usually pick kickers from games with good weather or in domes and with high over/unders. Who the heck knows. If I must… Brandon McManus should be low owned playing in the night game, who wants to wait to see their kicker. Some others I like this week are Justin Tucker as usual, due for a big game. Will Lutz is only $4700 in the highest over/under. Matt Bryant always in play if happen to have the money.
