As usual, I am entering a lineup in the DraftKings Millionaire Maker for the Pro Members. If we profit, I will return that amount in the form of a freeroll or if it’s a large sum (hopefully) via PayPal payouts.
Here’s this week’s lineup:
I will update in detail why we went with each of those players, but if you read my articles this week you probably know why! I wanted to post it before lock so we could sweat together!
Good luck us!
EDIT: Alright, let’s discuss these players and why I chose to roster them.
I really wanted a Rodgers/Cobb stack, but I had to compromise on parts of the lineup that I wasn’t ready to compromise on. The good thing is that Aaron Rodgers doesn’t necessarily need a WR stacked with him. He’s so good at spreading the ball around he could very easily throw three or four TDs to different receivers. He’s not dependent on one receive like Matt Ryan is with Julio Jones.
Latavius Murray was one of my favorite plays on the board. I have him in so many different lineups. This is very simple. Murray has been outstanding this season and was a top 10 RB coming into the week. He’s facing the team that’s given up the most rushing yards in the league at 160 yards a game. No brainer.
Jamaal Charles is simply a stud, on long rest, and in a pretty decent matchup with GB. The entire Chiefs offense runs through this guy and Las Vegas thinks a ton of points will be scored in this Monday Night matchup. I am not concerned about the big spread because he is still heavily involved in the pass game if the Chiefs get down and have to throw.
I love the idea of Mike Evans, who is a stud with massive upside is going to be incredible under-owned. I suspect his ownership to be close to 1% after a miserable game last week. This is the type of play that when it hits, can win you a $1 million.
I went back with the double TE strategy. It would allow me to spend up on Charles, Rodgers and Cobb while hopefully producing some great value plays. Jared Cook is Nick Foles favorite target in a game that has the second highest total on the board and only 1.5 point spread. That would indicate a lot of points scored both ways. Eric Ebron has been very solid for the Lions through two games and is clearly becoming one of Matt Stafford’s favorite redzone targets. I think that SNF game vs. Denver could turn into a shootout very quickly.
Brandon Marshall was one of my favorite players on the slate. He’s the option receiving option with Eric Decker ruled out in a game where you think the Jets would have to throw quite a bit. Marshall and Fitzpatrick are clearly connecting right now and his price is simply too low.
Jarvis Landry is actually one of my least favorite plays. He’s a PPR monster but I didn’t love the matchup with the Bills. Quite honestly, I am a little disappointed in this play already. I shouldn’t have settled for Landry but I was stubborn on the rest of my lineup and I wouldn’t budge. I thought Landry was the top option in his price range.
