Back again to give you a pick or two in your Weekly Fantasy Football lineups that allow you to put together a great team. Starting Adrian Peterson is a given every week if you could, especially this week @KC but how do you afford his hefty $9800 price tag on FanDuel? Read on!
Rex Grossman @ STL – $7100 – QBs prices have skyrocketed and it is getting tough to find a week-one Matt Stafford ($7300 in week one but now $8800). Rex has had a mediocre season so far but now he’s indoors vs the 28th ranked passing D in St Louis.
Jay Cutler vs CAR – $7700 -. I cannot believe I just typed his name out but Cutler has been slinging it this year with over 300yds in two of his three games and now faces one of the worst passing Ds, Carolina. It’s a gamble but he might get you the value at home. (Kevin Kolb vs NYG – $7500, Ben Roethlisberger @ HOU – $8200)
The next two picks are stretches but there might be something to look at since they are so cheap.
Dexter McCluster vs MIN – $5400 – Last week we saw KC start begin its season again, this time without premier RB, Jamall Charles. Old man Thomas Jones and Dexter McCluster are to carry the load. McCluster saw 13 touches last week, 10 of those came in the 2nd half. McCluster out produced Jones nearly twice as much in total yards (62 to 33). KC did not score in the first half and finished with 17 points and lost by 3. Those points came in the second half when McCulster was in there getting the ball. He should become more and more of the KC offense going forward.
Kendall Hunter @ PHI – $5400 – We all know Frank Gore has a bad ankel. If Gore doesn’t start we have a bomb ready to go off in Hunter. But even if Gore does start, Hunter will still get some touches as he did last week before Gore was hurt. Hunter didn’t have fantastic numbers (9/26 RuYd, 2/12 ReYd) last week but looked good on a TD in the 4th quarter. Great price and worth the gamble this week when you have the 25th ranked rushing-D in Philly to match up against. (Others to consider: James Starks vs DEN – $6700, Tim Hightower @ STL – $6900, Cedric Benson vs BUF – $6900)
Denarius Moore vs NE – $5800 – I am a huge Pats fan but I have to admit their secondary looks terrible at the moment. Denarius Moore turned heads, including his coach’s, during the pre-season and broke out vs Buffalo two weeks ago then held his own with a nifty run play vs the Jets. Great price and great match up = valuetown.
Santonio Holmes @ BAL – $6700 – Its been a strange season for Holmes and many were high on him this year. But Baltimore has given up the 3rd most fantasy points to WRs this year so far. He is too good to keep down, has a great history vs Baltimore (TD in last five games vs Balt) and the match up is great this week at $6700. (Others to consider: (Johnny Knox vs CAR – $6200, Mario Manningham @ ARI – $6500)
Randy McMichael vs MIA – $4800 – Simple maths: McMichael replaces the best TE ever (Gates) verus the worst defense (fantasy points wise, 3rd worst rating) against the TE, Miami, in his second start. Look for Randy to have the rust out and Rivers to find him. (Jared Cook @ CLE – $4500, Greg Olsen @ CHI – $5400.)
Quick Pick kickers and Ds: Nick Novack vs MIA – $5200, Dan Bailey vs DET – $5200, Connor Barth vs IND -$5400, Atlanta Flacons @ SEA – $5000, Minnesota Vikings @ KC – $5000, TB Buccaneers vs IND – $5200.
