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. These are the players I will have the most exposure to in my main GPP lineups. 

QUARTERBACKS

Matt Ryan and Tom Brady on Fanduel main slate – Think you have to get a piece of the night game if on the slate. These two are my favorite high-priced options.

Lower priced options

Tyrod Taylor – $7000 FD, $5100 DK – has decent floor and good ceiling versus a banged-up Tampa Bay defense

Brett Hundley – $6500 FD, $5100 DK – I like his running ability and the Saints defense, although improved, still can be scored on.

 

RUNNING BACKS

LeSean McCoy – This is the week he finally breaks out. Price still dropping as well.

Ezekiel Elliott – Don’t think you can go wrong with Zeke vs San Fran. Play him while you still have the chance.

Jay Ajayi – He did nothing against them the first game this year. Hopefully people will look at that and stay away. If they continue to feed him the rock he will do well. He gets in the end zone finally this week.

 

Lower priced options

Adrian Peterson – $6300 FD, $5800 DK – Trusting Dr. Roto here that the Cardinals will keep giving him the ball. Looked spry last week. Hard to count out one of the greatest running backs of all time. He didn’t fit the Saints offense nearly as well as Arizona.

Derrick Henry – $5600 FD, $5500 DK – Feel like he is almost a must play if Demarco Murray sits. Still a good play even if Murray is active.

Chris Ivory – $5900 FD, $4800 DK – Already involved in the offense with Leonard Fournette healthy. He caught 9 passes on 10 targets last week. If Fournette sits great running back value.

 

WIDE RECEIVERS

Adam Thielen – Still like him this week with no Diggs

Michael Thomas – Favorite high end wide receiver this week.

Julio Jones and Brandin Cooks on Fanduel – One or both should have good games in what could be a shootout in primetime.

Jarvis Landry – (more on DK) – Has double digit DK points in every game this season. Huge floor.

Lower priced targets

Kenny Stills, Eric Decker, Rishard Matthews – Not many low-priced options I like this week.

TIGHT ENDS

Jimmy Graham – My number one tight end this week. He will be in most of my lineups. Think he could have a huge game against the Giants who aren’t good at stopping the tight end.

Evan Engram – Same as last week “no one else to throw to for the Giants”.

Hunter Henry – In the three games he has seven or more targets, he has 13-15 DK points. Maybe they are finally making the shift away from Antonio Gates.

Lower priced targets

George Kittle – $3600 on DraftKings – Has 17 targets the past two games.

DEFENSE

Pittsburgh Steelers vs. Cincy – Don’t mind them at home in a divisional game. The Bengals offense is improved but still nothing special.

Minnesota Vikings vs Ravens – Joe Flacco is always good for a pick or two.   

Tennessee Titans at Browns– Will be popular facing the Browns. Still don’t mind them.

Lower priced targets

Miami Dolphins vs Jets – Only $4300 on Fanduel. They should score more than the 5 points they put up against them a month ago.

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… Adam Vinatieri is still min price and has been kicking well. Mason Crosby is $4600 and could get opportunities if Hundley and the offense stall. Justin Tucker as usual. Matt Bryant and Steven Gostkowski in the night game.
