Another week to pay up at QB!!!! Big Ben $6800 @ Baltimore could produce a huge total if DeAngelo Williams doesn’t vulture TDs. Cam Newton $7500 tore the Atlanta Falcons apart a few weeks back and is back to torment them again. He’s hot and looking to solidify a perfect season and MVP honors. Tom Brady $7500 gets a matchup @NYJ and these two teams don’t like each other. Expect the foot on the pedal all afternoon but the NY Jets defense is good. Just not sure if they can slow Tom Brady with his options getting healthier. Russell Wilson $7200 still has a lot to play for and the running game is suspect so Wilson should carry the scoring via the pass and Baldwin makes for a nice stack with how hot that TD connection has been recently. Blake Bortles $6500 gets the dream matchup at New Orleans so expect him to throw for multiple TDs this week. He had 5 TD passes a few weeks ago and all his receiving options are healthy.
Please do yourself a favor and check the injury report before playing any RBs. DeAngelo Williams $6500 should get in the end zone @ Baltimore as the scoring back in Pittsburgh’s high octane offensive attack. Doug Martin $6600 can get in the end zone also if you want to pay up at RB. Fade David Johnson at your own risk but his speed is too much to handle at this point. Johnson gets a tough matchup with Green Bay but expect him to have productive carries late in the game. Charcandrick West $5700 is in a nice spot vs Cleveland as Kansas City continues surging to a playoff spot. Keep an eye on the Buffalo Bills RB situation as Karlos Williams and Mike Gillislee $4500 could present nice value.
Kamar Aiken $5400 vs Pittsburgh is a great matchup. Pittsburgh allows the most points per game to the WR position and we can expect Baltimore to play from behind most of the day. Brandon Marshall $7600 should be needed early and often vs the Patriots. Jeremy Maclin $6000 has received the highest percentage of his teams targets over the last 5 weeks so we can be confident Alex Smith will continue to pepper him with the football. Allen Robinson $7500 could be in for a HUGE day at New Orleans this week against that terrible defense. Detroit certainly took advantage so Bortles to Robinson could produce multiple scores. Golden Tate $5800 paid off last week @ New Orleans and we can expect more of the same as he is being highly targeted by Stafford the last 4 games.
Gronk $7600 and Olsen $7000 are very close in price at this point. They produce and have quality matchups. With Jordan Reed not eligible for Sunday play the cost savings begin with Delanie Walker $5600 who is a risk with Marriota possibly out. Barnidge $4700 is one of the few healthy options left for Johnny Manziel. Zach Miller $4000 is the #2 option in the Chicago passing game and is a great option at his price if you want to save and pay up elsewhere.
Options this week include Carolina $3700, Seattle $4300, and Kansas City $4200. But our favorite option is Denver $3400 at home vs Cincinnati. We expect AJ McCarron to struggle with his pass catching options banged up and Denver to be motivated after Pittsburgh took it to them in the 2nd half last week.
