FantasySavvy 2015: Week 5 Daily League Selections

By Kevin Lewis:

FanDuel Tourney

QB- Rivers($7500), vs PIT

The Steelers let up 300+ yards and 2 TDs to Colin Kaepernick. Need I say more?

HB- Lacy($7600), vs STL

He’s due and the Rams have been relatively vulnerable to opposing RBs This year.

HB- Dion Lewis($6900), @DAL

Lewis got a two year extension from the Patriots this week and despite Belichick’s reputation as a guy who puzzles people with RB usage, Lewis has carved out a role as a starter. Patriots are heavy favorites in Dallas and Lewis should get plenty of work.

WR- Beckham($9000), vs SF

The Niners let up 195 and 2 to Antonio Brown and 130 and 2 to Larry Fitzgerald. They also lead the free world in 20+ yard pass plays allowed.

WR- Maclin($6900), vs CHI

Although Alex Smith is extremely limited, Maclin has almost 400 yards and two scores through four contests. The Bears sport one of the very worst pass defenses in the sport and none of their CBs stand a chance covering him.

WR- Marquess Wilson($4800), @CHI

He went for 6 and 80 last week and caught one of the Most important passes of the week. Alshon Jeffery and Eddie Royal are both out. Something has to give.

TE- Gronkowski($8400), @DAL

He’s Gronk.

K- Santos($4600), vs CHI

Eh, why not? KC has trouble closing drives out.

DST- Giants($4300), vs SF

They’re playing against Colin Kaepernick.

FD Cash (50/50, H2H, Small Leagues)

Brady($8800), @DAL
Best QB play of the week if you can afford it.

HB- Lacy($7600), vs STL

HB- Freeman($7600), vs WSH

Not a huge fan of Freeman but he’s going to be so highly owned in cash games that if he has a bad game it won’t hurt you too much.

WR- Allen Robinson($6300), @TB

Tampa’s renowned Cover Who defense scares nobody. Allen Hurns had his yearly good game last week and Robinson has been fed a ton of targets. I think this has the makings of a huge Robinson week.

WR- Pierre Garcon($6200), @ATL

Jordan Reed is out and Desean Jackson is also. Garcon is always a must start under those conditions.

WR- Kendall Wright($5900)

Buffalo’s defense has been relatively nondescript so far and Jarvis Landry, Julian Edelman and Dwayne Harris(!!) have all done work from the slot against them. I think Wright continues the trend

TE- Gronkowski($8400), @DAL

K- Santos($4600), vs CHI

DST- Giants($4300), vs SF

DK Cash (H2H, 50/50, Small Leagues)

QB- Rivers($6200), vs PIT

HB- Lacy($6700), vs STL

HB- Freeman($6300), vs WSH

WR- DeMaryius Thomas($8100), @OAK

Thomas is always open. He just doesn’t have the TD production yet and you would think that would change some time soon. I think it changes this week.

WR- Allen Robinson($5500), @TB

WR- Pierre Garcon($5300), @ATL

TE- Charles Clay($4100), @TEN

TEN is last in DVOA against TEs this season. Sammy Watkins isn’t playing and Clay received 11 targets last week. I think Clay is arguably the highest floor TE not named Gronk this week.

FLEX- Lewis($4800), @DAL

DST- Giants($2900), vs SF

DK Tourny

QB Sam Bradford($6000), vs NO

New Orleans secondary is bad and Bradford showed some signs of improvement in the second half last week. He’s a great differentiation tourney option this week in my estimation.

HB- Lacy($6700), vs STL

 HB- Lewis($4800), @DAL

WR- Beckham($9000), vs SF

WR- Maclin($6000), vs CHI

WR- Willie Snead($3000), @PHI

Given how poorly Brandin Cooks is playing and how likely it is NO throws a lot, I think Snead’s floor is pretty safe. He’s your quintessential punt play.

TE- Rob Gronkowski($7500), @DAL

FLEX-Marquess Wilson($3400), @CHI

DST- Giants($2900), vs SF
