Here’s the lineup:
I had a really difficult time deciding on a Quarterback this week. I wanted Aaron Rodgers but he was a big hit to the cap and hindered our ability to spend elsewhere. I kicked around Derek Carr and Tyrod Taylor but I settled on the stack of Cam Newton and Greg Olsen. This is strictly based on opportunity. If you read the Cheat Sheet, you’ll know that Newton is on pace to shatter his career highs in both passing and rushing attempts. He’s simply an offensive machine and should see the greatest opportunity for fantasy points. Greg Olsen is his favorite target and NEVER comes off the field. Literally, check the Snap Counts, he’s the only player in the league (RB, WR or TE) that has played 100% of their team’s snaps.
Running Back is a phenomenally deep position this week. I believe it to be the position that will win or lose GPPs. Karlos Williams is probably the best value play on the board, which is no secret. Williams has been great this season and LeSean McCoy will be sitting this game out, meaning all the workload is going to Williams. It’s usually not advisable to roster someone who’s going to be so highly owned, but he present too much value to pass up.
Eddie Lacy, in my opinion, is going to be one of the lowest owned players on the board. I think he’s going to scare a lot of owners because he’s been banged up and was out-touched by James Starks last week. I am not concerned one bit. The Packers jumped out early and didn’t need to risk a setback to Lacy so they let Starks take the majority of the work. When Lacy played, he looked awesome! I think he’s going to be back to the workhorse back, in an awesome matchup with a great gamescript.
The Wide Receivers are pretty self-explanatory. I went with as many guaranteed targets as I could find. AJ Green, Amari Cooper and Randall Cobb should all certainly see ten targets at a minimum. They are in great matchups and have tremendous upside. This is always my way of getting exposure to the other QBs I liked, in Carr, Andy Dalton and Rodgers.
I decided to go with a second TE and settled on Charles Clay. An incredible athletic TE who has been great this season, catching a TD in each of his last two games. With Sammy Watkins out for the Bills, there should be a few extra targets headed Clay’s way. Also, the matchup is great, as the Giants have surrendered the fourth most DraftKings points to opposing TEs.
Defense is a crapshoot IMO, since you are really looking for defensive TDs which are nearly impossible to predict. However, we can predict the factors that lead to turnovers, which tend to be pressure on the QB. The Eagles can absolutely get pressure on the QB and defensives has scored nearly 11 points per game against the Redskins this season.
