*These are just suggestions!
QB: Aaron Rodgers, Green Bay Packers
Rodgers made it look easy last Sunday against the Chicago Bears. He has put up at least 23 fantasy points in each of his last six games. The Eagles are actually pretty good against QBs this season but they will have to face a red hot Rodgers who should have most of his offensive talent available to him. He has built chemistry with players other than just Davante Adams. Robert Tonyan and Allen Lazard have both seen steps forward. Aaron is priced pretty fairly at just $6,800. I want to ride the hot hand.
Other QB’s I Love:
Kirk Cousins, Minnesota Vikings
Ryan Fitzpatrick, Miami Dolphins
RB: Austin Ekeler, Los Angeles Chargers
RB: Jonathan Taylor, Indianapolis Colts
Austin Ekeler is back and so is the production. Ekeler saw an astounding 16 targets out of the backfield last week against Buffalo, he had a total of 25 touches in his first game back and should see similar production against the Patriots. The Patriots will likely try and lock down Keenan Allen, which will force rookie Justin Herbert to go to his check down Ekeler.
Jonathan Taylor was activated from the covid list right on time for a juicy matchup with the worst rush defense in the league the Houston Texans. Houston has given up 26 ppg to RBs this season and it should continue this week, as the Colts will look to keep the ball on the ground to manage the clock. Taylor should see a lot of touches this weekend. His price is the best part at just $5.7K.
Other RB’s I Love:
David Montgomery, Chicago Bear
Derrick Henry, Tennessee Titans (Duh)
WR: Keke Coutee, Houston Texans
WR: Robert Woods, Los Angeles Rams
WR: Davante Adams, Green Bay Packers
Keke Coutee is just $3.5K. Coutee was the only receiver other than the suspended Will Fuller and Brandin Cooks to get a snap count above 25% in their last game. Coutee will be forced into a bigger role without Fuller as the Texans will likely be forced to throw more against the tough Colts.
Robert Woods has had 27 targets in his last two games. He did not miss a single snap last week against the Cardinals. His potential volume at a price under $6,000 makes him a great option in a likely high scoring game.
Davante Adams- I am a believer that if you start a QB, you should start their #1 target. Adams is by far the #1 target in Green Bay. We saw what DK Metcalf did last week to the Eagles, we should see similar production from Adams on Sunday.
Other WR’s I Love:
Michael Pittman Jr, Indianapolis Colts
Allen Robinson, Chicago Bears
TE: Robert Tonyan, Green Bay Packers
Robert Tonyan is way to cheap at $3.7K. The Eagles will be forced to pay attention to multiple offensive threats which should leave Tonyan with multiple opportunities to hit value. The return of Lazard has opened up a lot more freedom for Tonyan in the red zone. He is a serious threat for a TD at a way to low cost.
Flex: James White, New England Patriots
James White has returned to form over the last two weeks. The injury to Rex Burkhead has opened up a lot of production for White, he has put up back to back weeks of 14+ points and has a good matchup with the Chargers on Sunday. White shockingly rushed for two touchdowns last week, getting the red zone carries. His real value comes from targets out of the backfield but by adding the threat of goal line carries he is way underpriced at just $5,000.
Defense: Seattle Seahawks
Seahawks have found a pass rush since adding Carlos Dunlap and getting healthier in the secondary. They get to face the Giants with Colt McCoy under center.
