Winter has shown up here in Michigan as we got over 10 inches of snow Monday night.
Then I looked at my Week 10 bargains, and wow, am I sorry. You can blame this snow blast on me because Week 10 was a total bomb.
David Montgomery, Devin Singletary, Zach Pascal and Ted Ginn Jr. were just ice cold. Ryan Fitzpatrick was meh, and Mike Gesicki was just another tight end this last week.
But, we also need to point out a few positives because if you used Christian Kirk or the New York Jets DST, they were fire as Kirk put up 40.8 points while the Jets posted 16.
So let’s get out those scrapers, brush off our Week 10 blunder of bad bargains, crack a beer, and get you a nice rebound of Week 11 bargains!
Kyle Allen Quarterback, Carolina Panthers ($5,300)
Don’t be scared with what just happened with Drew Brees against the Atlanta Falcons last week – Kyle Allen is worth the gamble, especially at home. His overall box score last week was good with yardage, but he only totaled one touchdown as he missed a couple opportunities in the red zone. D.J. Moore is starting to break out and Allen is getting in sync with him and the rest of the Panthers. Put him in a lineup with confidence.
Devin Singletary, Running Back, Buffalo Bills ($6,000)
I refuse to get off the Devin Singletary train. I have no idea why the Bills didn’t give him the ball the whole game last week. They insist on giving Frank Gore carries and he proceeded to run for a whole 12 yards. It’s over for sure now this week for Gore as Singletary will be back near the 20-touch mark and should be back in the fantasy fire, especially if the Bills want to win.
Brian Hill, Running Back, Atlanta Falcons ($4,800)
No Devonta Freeman for a couple weeks and a running back who is looking to get 15+ touches? Absolutely! How can you pass up on Brian Hill this week after Aaron Jones just put up three touchdowns on this same defense last week? I won’t. Hill could be a weekly winner this week in DraftKings and his super-low cost makes him very beneficial to have with some top-end dogs.
D.J. Chark Jr, Wide Receiver, Jacksonville Jaguars ($6,200)
It was back in week one when D.J. Chark busted onto the scene with a 4/146/1 stat line. While Gardner Minshew was the quarterback for 102 of those yards, the touchdown was from Nick Foles. Chark and the Jaguars get Foles back this week, and at what is a high-end bargain price, how can you pass up on him? This Jacksonville offense has a plethora of weapons, but it will be Chark putting up the WR1 numbers this week.
Tyler Boyd, Wide Receiver, Cincinnati Bengals ($5,200)
Last week was the rookie debut for Ryan Finley. I wanted to put A.J. Green in here, but it’s looking more and more likely that he probably won’t even play this season. Seeing that Tyler Boyd saw eight targets and caught six of them for 62 yards, it wasn’t too bad of an outing in the team’s first action without Andy Dalton. Now, Cincinnati will be at Oakland who has one of the most porous pass defenses in the league this season, give the green light to Boyd this week.
Mohammed Sanu, Wide Receiver, New England Patriots ($5,100)
The trade that went for a second-round pick? Mohammed Sanu was a total bomb in his debut against the Cleveland Browns, but he had a nice coming-out party the following week posting 10/81/1 on 14 targets. Now he gets to go into Philadelphia and take on an Eagles’ secondary that is starting to improve, but still has its flaws. Tom Brady will be dinking and dunking in this game and Sanu should easily see double-digit targets once again.
Greg Olsen, Tight End, Carolina Panthers ($3,900)
After eight weeks of single-digit targets, Greg Olsen finally found himself in the double-digit category in Week 10. In my opinion, when a tight end gets this kind of targets, you have to think it will carry on again the following week – especially when playing against the Atlanta Falcons.
New Orleans Saints DST ($2,900)
Last week’s surprise loss at home against the Falcons was a hell of a wake-up call for the Saints. A nice way to makeup for this is to play against Jameis Winston and the Bucs because he is always good for an interception or two, or three, or maybe four, and a couple of sacks… you get the point.
