Wow, it’s hard to believe that we are about 40% through the football season.
Time flies when you’re having fun, and if you used any of my bargain plays last week, you had to feel pretty good as all did well outside of Gardner Minshew.
He proved to us this past week that he is still a rookie and that he will make mistakes. What about Larry Fitzgerald? Game script was there and Kyler Murray played, solid but Fitz only finished 6/69.
Damien Williams was saved by a touchdown, but he only had two, yes two total touches. As of right now I would avoid the Kansas City backfield until we see something.
Carlos Hyde, Tevin Coleman, Terry McLaurin, Auden Tate, Jared Cook and 49ers DST were all solid and I hope to keep the streak alive this week as we enter Week 7!
Jacoby Brissett, Quarterback, Indianapolis Colts ($5,600)
Going into his Week-6 bye, Jacoby Brissett was tied for the league lead with 10 passing touchdowns. Coming fresh off the bye, he gets a nice home matchup against the Houston Texans. Sure they just came off beating the Kansas City Chiefs, but no one has an offensive line like the Colts. Game script should have this game being controlled by the Colts, but also trying to keep Deshaun Watson and company in check. Look for two touchdowns at minimum here for Brissett.
Derrick Henry, Running Back, Tennessee Titans ($5,800)
Week in and week out, Derrick Henry has either had a touchdown or 100 yards rushing. Last week against the Denver Broncos, he was finally held in check finishing with under 30 yards on 15 attempts. This Titans team couldn’t get anything going last week as they benched Marcus Mariota for Ryan Tannehill. Game script shouldn’t change now that Tannehill has been named the Week-7 starter; and remember what James Conner and Benny Snell did to this Chargers’ defense last week? What it means is find a way to get Henry into your lineup a rebound rate!
Devin Singletary, Running Back, Buffalo Bills ($5,400)
HEEEEEEE’s BAAAACCCCKKK. My favorite rookie this season is back after being out since he injured his hamstring back in Week 2. What better way to have a welcome back rookie game than playing against a Miami Dolphins team that has been giving up nearly 30 points a game to running backs. This may be the game when Frank Gore starts to take a backseat to the rookie.
T.Y. Hilton, Wide Receiver, Indianapolis Colts ($5,900)
Oh man, talk about a bargain stack if you can do it. T.Y. Hilton needed the bye to help get his quad healed up after doing very little in Week 5. Sure he jumped up $900 since Week 5, but I think DraftKings knows something here. I know that you should take advantage of this opportunity before he jumps well over the $6,000 mark.
Brandin Cooks, Wide Receiver, Los Angeles Rams ($5,400)
Wh-wha-what?!?!? After last week’s disaster, the Rams have a get-right game against the Atlanta Falcons in the dome. You know anytime you have a player going against Atlanta, they’re gonna eat. I feel like this will be a Brandin Cooks day as Cooper Kupp and Robert Woods have already had theirs, plus, the speed of Cooks in a dome should help him connect on a deep touchdown from Jared Goff this week.
Mohammed Sanu, Wide Receiver, Atlanta Falcons ($4,600)
I am also going with the same game and the other side too. With Jalen Ramsey being traded for a kings ransom to the Rams, he’s going to be all over Julio Jones and only god knows who will be guarding Calvin Ridley. That leaves ____________ on Sanu. Exactly. He will burn them this week, and when you play with a quarterback that’s been going over 300 yards every game, Sanu is going to do what Jones won’t be able to.
Hunter Henry, Tight End, Los Angeles Chargers ($4,000)
A touchdown or 60+ yards is what you really need to be a good tight end any week. Hunter Henry will be looking to at do both once again this week against the Tennessee Titans. As a massive 6’5″ target in the middle of the field, he’s a tough player to defend. Defenses will be focused on stopping Keenan Allen allowing Hunter to get that yardage and those touchdowns. He’s playing like a solid WR2 that you can play at the tight end spot.
Lions DST ($2,300)
On Monday night the Lions played really well against the Green Bay Packers. They lost, but the blame is on the refs for calling touchdowns that weren’t touchdowns and pass interference on plays when both players were going for the ball. Welcome back home Detroit, as they look to bring Kirk Cousins and company back down to earth.
