QB: Deshaun Watson, Houston Texans ($7,100)
Watson gets a week of rest ahead of a game with the Jacksonville Jaguars with their horrendous defense. The Jags give up the 4th most fantasy points to QBs this season and Watson has already roasted them once with 29.86 fantasy points in week five. Watson is moderately priced at just $7.1K. What makes him a better choice than Justin Herbert or any other top fives is that his receivers are affordable. He is easy to match up with Will Fuller, Brandin Cooks and Darren Fells.
Other QB’s I Love:
Justin Herbert, Los Angeles Chargers
Russell Wilson, Seattle Seahawks
RB: Dalvin Cook, Minnesota Vikings ($8,200)
RB: James Robinson, Jacksonville Jaguars ($7,000)
Dalvin Cook is coming off of a monster performance against the Packers. He will likely be very popular but the matchup is too good to ignore. The Lions give 32 fantasy points per game this season versus RBs. The Minnesota offense has very little interest in putting the ball in the hands of Kirk Cousins. They will continue to feature Cook and he will dominate this matchup.
James Robinson will have a rookie QB at the helm on Sunday when he faces one of the worst run defenses in the league. The Jaguars, Texans game has one of the top totals in the league and Robinson will be a big part of that. Robinson is hot, ride the hot hand.
Other RB’s I Love:
Deejay Dallas, Seattle Seahawks (If Carson is ruled out)
David Johnson, Houston Texans
WR: Brandin Cooks, Houston Texans ($5,500)
WR: Marvin Jones Jr., Detroit Lions ($5,100)
WR: Mecole Hardman, Kansas City Chiefs ($4,800)
Cooks is my choice to pair with Watson. His cost at $5.5K is a main reason why. He has three straight games with at least nine targets. He dominated the Jaguars in his last outing against them going for 33 DK points.
Jones Jr. may be without Mathew Stafford on Sunday. Even without Stafford Jones Jr. should still be a great option against the subpar Vikings secondary. The Vikings have given up 15 touchdowns to wide receivers this year. The Lions won’t have Kenny Golladay on Sunday and may have Chase Daniel under center but they are a team that consistently will lean on the pass.
You can start nearly any Chief and have a great chance to get points. Mecole Hardman is coming off a nine target game, his explosiveness is always a touchdown waiting to happen. His price tag of $4.8K is too intriguing to ignore. Hardeman has been the clear replacement for Sammy Watkins seeing 68% of the snaps, second on the team to Tyreke Hill. Find a receiver on an offense this good at a similar price, go ahead and play him.
Other WR’s I Love:
Any Seattle or Buffalo Receivers you can fit.
Darnell Mooney, Chicago Bears
Mike Williams, Los Angeles Chargers
TE: Noah Fant, Denver Broncos ($4,600)
Tightend has its top options. Kelce, Waller and Andrews are always great but Noah Fant is beginning to find himself in that category. He is a target monster for a Denver team that doesn’t have a clear #1 receiver. Atlanta has given up the most fantasy points to the position in the league.
Flex: Justin Jackson, Los Angeles Chargers ($4,900)
Seems like Justin Jackson is now the #1 RB for the Chargers. Coming off of a game where he got 20 touches and 5 total targets he has established himself in the Chargers backfield. Jackson gets a great matchup with the Raiders. He is a starting RB, in a great matchup with a close spread and a high potential total.
Defense: New York Giants ($2,700)
They are a defense playing a bottom five offense. Why not.
Other Defense I Love:
Washington Football Team
