Week 8 starts tonight, and that means it’s time to do a little gambling. Here are all the players that I’d put money on this week…
Dak Prescott @ Was (FD=8600, DK=7300)
Prescott gets to face a banged-up Redskins D this weekend. Should be in for a huge day.
Carson Wentz vs. SF (FD=7900, DK 7200)
Wentz is really coming into his own, and the Eagles have a soft match-up with the 49ers this week.
Kirk Cousins vs. Dal (FD=7800, DK=6400)
The Redskins only hope of winning this weekend is to out-shoot the Cowboys. I think Cousins should be throwing from behind most of the day.
Matt Moore @ Bal (FD=6500, DK=4500)
Moore is the Value Of The Week. I think he should put up solid numbers against a demoralized Ravens team on a short week.
LeSean McCoy vs. Oak (FD=8400, DK=8200)
McCoy should be the focal point of Buffalo’s attack this week. A must start and due for a huge game.
Christian McCaffrey @ TB (FD=6300, DK=6200)
McCaffrey has been a target machine for Carolina and sooner or later they are bound to start handing him the rock as well. Why not this week?
Alvin Kamara vs. Chi (FD=6400, DK=5900)
Kamara has become a swiss army knife in the Saints scheme. He’s getting a ton of targets and should help keep a good Bears D on its heels.
Chris Thompson vs. Dal (FD=6000, DK=5800)
Thompson has been the Redskins best player for the better part of the season. He is deadly in the screen game, and a match-up nightmare when covered by a backer or lineman. Should be in for a feast against a struggling Dallas D.
Joe Mixon vs. Ind (FD=5900, DK=4700)
Mixon is the best back on the Bengals. The Bengals should win this game by multiple scores. Mixon should get a whole lot of touches.
Antonio Brown @ Det (FD=9200, DK=8800)
Antonio Brown is a must start every week. Regardless of match-up as long as Big Ben stays upright. Has had 9 or more targets in every game this season.
AJ Green vs. Ind (FD=8500, DK=8600)
Green is a monster and no Colts DB has a chance this week. Dalton should just throw it up to him every play this week.
Mike Evans vs. Car (FD=8200, DK=7900)
Evans has had 8 or more targets in every game this year. He is un-coverable down field and wins almost every jump ball. Expect Winston to look his way early and often.
Jarvis Landry @ Bal (FD=7400, DK=6500)
Landry is a target god, averaging over 11 per game this season.
Josh Doctson vs. Dal (FD=5200, DK=3900)
The Redskins receivers need a spark, and Doctson may be just that. If he can stay on the field, his big-play ability should be on full dis[play.
Zach Ertz vs. SF (FD=7300, DK=7000)
Ertz has been a monster all season. The Eagles throw the ball a ton and he’s Carson Wentz’s go-to guy.
Cameron Brate vs. Car (FD=5800, DK=4500)
Brate has been enfuego the last few weeks. Over the last four games hes averaging a slash line of 5 catches for 70 yards and a score.
Hunter Henry @ NE (FD=5500, DK=4800)
Henry has quietly averaged 4 catches and 60 yards a game this season.
Jason Witten @ Was (FD=5400, DK=4200)
Jason Witten always shreds the Redskins, it’s a fall time tradition.
NO Saints vs. Chi (FD=4800, DK=3400)
Mitch Trubinsky has struggled in recent weeks breaking 100 yards passing. The Siants may blow the Bears out this week.
Mia Dolphins @ Bal (FD=4400, DK=3000)
Joe Flacco and the Ravens pass attack has been dreadful all season. The running game hasn’t been setting the world on fire either.
Kai Forbath @ Cle (FD=5100)
Forbath has been a fantasy stud as a kicker this year. Expect that to continue against the Browns in London.
Jake Elliot vs.SF (FD=4800)
The Eagles are going to score a ton of points vs. the 49ers this week. Elliot’s leg might fall off from overuse.
