Hello everyone and welcome to my DFS likes of the week. Last week we saw a lot of surprise players who scored in the top 10 of their positions. I expect the same this week as a lot of players can be sneaky starts. Let’s get this started.
Jared Goff – DraftKings– $6,700. FanDuel– $8,200
Jared Goff has an amazing matchup this week. He’s at home against Houston who rank 4th in most points allowed to QB’s. Since coming out the bye week, the Houston defense has allowed 36 points to Russell Wilson and 20 points to Jacoby Brissett. Jared Goff is coming off a monster game against the Giants on the road. He did have two huge TD plays that worked in his favor. But nonetheless, he played a great game. Watkins looks healthy and Todd Gurley has been one of the best receiving backs in the NFL this year. Odd stat, Houston is allowing the second-fewest points per game to the RB position and they allow ONLY 58 rush yards per game on the road this year. The Rams will have to pass, whether they like it or not. I’m firing up Goff with confidence. He’ll finish in the top7 QB range this week.
Eli Manning– The Giants are horrible this year, yes I know. But Eli still has a healthy Sheppard, a rookie sensation in Engram and a running game, finally, well sorta. The Giants are bad, the 49ers are even worse. As the CHEAPEST quality QB starter in both Draftings and FanDuel; you can play Eli and expect around a top12 finish on the week.
Devonta Freeman– DraftKings– $6,000. FanDuel– $6,500.
Last week both DraftKings and FanDuel made the mistake by making TY Hilton the price of a WR2. This week they’re doing it again with Freeman. Fact, Freeman hasn’t scored a TD since week 4. Fact, Freeman has only rushed for over 80 yards twice this season; that came in weeks 2 and 3. Freeman has been a disappointment had you taken him anywhere in re-drafts within the first 15 picks. However, in 3 home games this year, Freeman has 46 carries for 210 yards and 3 touchdowns. Much better than on the road where he’s failed to eclipse 50 rushing yards in 3 of 5 games. He also has 24 targets this year which is tied with his counterpart, Tevin Coleman. Freeman is my gut feeling player of the week.
Leaven Bell: The best RB in the league going up against The Colts pedestrian defense off a bye week. Bell will see NO LESS than 25 touches this game. He’ll score a pair of TD’s and finish in the top 3 RB’s for week 10. If you’ve gone cheap elsewhere, here is where you invest those big bucks.
Bilal Powell: Forte has been ruled out for week 10. We’ve seen what Powell can do when he gets 15+ touches.
Robby Anderson– DraftKings– $5,200. FanDuel– $6,500.
Robby Anderson has surprisingly become a great fantasy commodity and easily the Jets best weapon. In his last three games, he has 16 targets for 13 catches and 187 yards; oh, and 3 touchdowns. Going up against the Buccaneers defense who’ve allowed 40 points per game to the position, Robby Anderson is easily poised to have 100 + yard game with the potential to have his 4th consecutive touchdown game.
Cooper Kupp: Liked him last week and he burned me. But he’s still Jared Goff’s favorite target and I like the Goff/Kupp stack here. He’s also the cheapest of The Rams three receivers which is blasphemy.
Kyle Rudolph– DraftKings– $4,600. FanDuel– $5,400.
Case Keenum already looks his way a ton and add in the fact that the Redskins allow the 4th most points to the position and you have a recipe for a successful DFS tight end play this week. In his last four games, Rudolph has had 9,9,7 and 7 targets. Most of his receptions have been check downs but he’s scored two touchdowns in those past four games. What else makes me LOVE Kyle Rudolph this week? The Redskins allow the 5th FEWEST points to WRs. Keenum is going to have to look his way early and often.
Chris Boswell- FanDuel– $4,800
One of the leagues best offenses against one of the leagues worse defenses, I’ll take Boswell over any kicker this week.
Bears- DraftKings– $3,000. FanDuel– $4,300
The Packers cant do anything offensively and add the fact that they’re heading to Soldier field in a division rivalry game against a Bears defense whom rank 8th in overall total defense. I’ll take them as a sleeper defense who should get to Hundley a few times and even create a few turnovers.
