By Kevin Lewis:
Fanduel Cash Game
QB Aaron Rodgers($9200), @San Francisco– The man is a machine. The Niners are dreadful. Run him out there with supreme confidence.
HB Latavius Murray($7500), @Chicago– The Raiders are playing the Bears. Do I really need to expound on why it’s a good idea to start a RB against that “defense”?
HB Karlos Williams($6300), vs New York Giants– The Giants have given up the fifth most fantasy points to RBs. Williams has no competition for touches in the Buffalo backfield and he should get a ton of them. He’s also probably the most chalk play of the week.
WR Randall Cobb($8200), @San Francisco– He’s off to a roaring start and once again, the Niners stink. Pair him with the best QB in the league and hope that this isn’t a trap game for Green Bay.
WR Donte Moncrief($6300), vs Jacksonville- I’m going to continue to write him in this space until he goes a week without a touchdown.
WR James Jones($6000), @San Francisco- The guy scores every week and the Niners haven’t stopped anything in two weeks. Don’t overthink this.
TE Travis Kelce($6400), @Cincinnati- Prepare for the sizzling hot narrative. Kelce went to school here and I think he’s due for a big game. Cincinnati’s linebackers struggle in coverage to boot. While I’m weary of Alex Smith, Kelce creates a lot of what he gets on his own anyway.
K Matt Bryant($4800), vs HOU
D Denver Broncos($4700), vs Minnesota- It’s going to be a long day for the Vikings.
Fanduel Tourny Lineup
QB Aaron Rodgers($9200), @San Francisco
HB Karlos Williams($6300), vs New York Giants
HB Latavius Murray($7500), @Chicago
WR Randall Cobb($8200), @San Francisco
WR Jordan Matthews($7000), @Washington– It’s gonna be difficult for the Eagles to run the ball against Washington’s stout run defense. Washington also has nobody even remotely equipped to deal with JMatt. 1+1=2. I’m well aware of what the weather may have in store but I’ll take my chances on Matthews vs those CBs regardless.
WR Anquan Boldin($6400), vs Green Bay- All hunch here. San Francisco should be trailing for the majority of the contest and Vernon Davis is also out. Who are they going to target? Torrey Smith? Exactly.
TE Martellus Bennett($5500), vs Oakland- The Raiders have hemorrhaged about a million catches and 10 million yards to tight ends in 2015. Martellus Bennett is the lone wolf with Alshon Jeffery likely to miss the game. I get that Jimmy Clausen sucks but you can probably do worse for $5,500 at TE
K Chandler Catanzaro($4800), vs STL
D Denver Broncos($4700), vs Minnesota
DraftKings Cash Games
QB Andy Dalton($5900), vs Kansas City Chiefs- The Chiefs have already given up 10 touchdown passes in three games, and Dalton has thrown nine. Their secondary is banged up as well. I expect Dalton to continue his strong start to the season.
HB Matt Forte($7100), vs Oakland Raiders– He plays almost every snap. He should be re-involved in the pass game this week against a far less intimidating Raiders defense. Really good, safe play
HB Karlos Williams($3600), vs New York Giants
WR AJ Green($7600), vs Kansas City Chiefs– Completely matchup proof
WR Amari Cooper($6300), at Chicago Bears– Cooper has 290 yards in his first three professional games and he’s barely old enough to drink. The Bears gainfully employ Alan Ball and Kyle Fuller. Plug and enjoy.
WR Anquan Boldin($4800), vs Green Bay Packers
TE Martellus Bennett($4500), vs Oakland
Flex Latavius Murray @ Chicago ($6,300)
DST Seahawks($3700)- The Lions are a dumpster fire.
QB- Tyrod Taylor($5800), vs New York Giants– The Giants have given up 300+ yards passing in each of their first three games. For some reason Taylor is still $5800 on DK.. Take advantage
HB Matt Forte($7100), vs Oakland Raiders
HB Jamaal Charles($7600), @ Cincinnati Bengals– The Bengals defense is quite strong but I’ll always take my chances with Charles in full point PPR due to his load, and the amount of passes he might catch from Checkdown Master.
WR Amari Cooper($6300), at Chicago Bears
WR James Jones($5300), @San Francisco
WR Jordan Matthews($7000), @Washington
TE Martellus Bennett($4500), vs Oakland
Flex Robert Woods vs NYG- Watkins out, Taylor completing 70% of his passes, Woods will get plenty of burn against a very weak Giants secondary and defense.
D Denver Broncos($3300),vs Minnesota
