uh, welcome into the fantasy coaches, DFS Discourse.
Uh, coming in tow Week eight.
Now, I'm not the familiar face you probably see in the weekly week basis.
Our boy Jesse, he's taking an unauthorized vacation.
If he's gonna be watching this today, uh, grows here.
I'm just kind of the face showing in here.
And coach is gonna give you guys most of the breakdown on some daily fantasy stuff here for us today.
So, Joe, welcome in, Bud.
Hey, thanks for joining me today.
It's gonna be fun.
Talk about some daily fantasy with you if you guys been listening to this over the last, you know, eight weeks.
So, uh, they've been giving up some great takes and stuff and couldn't be more proud of what they're doing so far for this for us.
And glad to be on here with you today.
So let's let's kick it off here.
Um, you wanted to talk about week seven.
Something to you and Jesse wanna learn from.
So I'm gonna let you start off with that, my friend.
So it was, Unfortunately, the lessons learned kind of week.
Um, so we started getting news around Thursday Friday that Joe Mixon, Erin Jones were likely trending in the out direction.
And that's ultimately what ended up happening.
So you had the values of Jamal Williams at 4000.
That was a stone cold, minimal draftkings.
You had Geo Bernard at 4500, both both ended up hitting four x five x.
So my mistake waas that so? Well, let's go back a step further again.
So last week Mean Slate was one of the of the past variety, so you don't typically have the Sunday night game on that main sleep.
But with everything going on between that Vegas Vegas, um, Buccaneer Game that was supposed to be the original Sunday night game.
But that got bumped from 8 24 05 Eastern because of what was going on with the Raiders offensive line in regards to Trent Brown and possible exposure to the coronavirus.
So NBC flexes the Arizona Seattle game into prime time, and this sites decided to keep that game on the main slate.
So if you were, if you had Davante Adams in your lineup mawr, more or less, you had a good week.
I mean, you started out right there with the floor, 49 points.
So that was great again in a non typical week with that game with that Seattle Arizona game being on the main sleep, if you have both Davante Adams and Tyler Lockett.
I mean, you were already at 100 points and just let your other seven players go where they have to go to get to the money.
So I guess my lot of construction decision waas you had the for the three values, including trick.
Want Smith. So you had Williams.
You had Smith and you had Geo Bernard of the three of the three of those guys.
I like Williams the best.
So I had Williams.
I was overweight on him completely.
My mistake ended up being I was hoping that Bernard would fail, So I was severely underweight where I should have realized having them both in the lineup was a way to get to the more expensive pieces, getting both Adams and lock it in there.
I totally I totally missed and definitely been eating at me all week.
But again, I just felt like we needed to talk about that real, because I mean part of playing DFS is growth, um, realized celebrating your success.
But at the same time, you definitely wanna look back and kind of like what you did wrong in terms, because roster decisions, a lot of construction just so you can evaluate for, you know, this week coming up or just future endeavors? Um, it's easy to kind of get satisfied, but at the same time, Bad week, um, definitely motivated.
Definitely get into Week eight.
Finally, glad it's tomorrow because, like I said, it's been definitely kill me all week.
So I'm ready to get that bad taste that I'm out of my mouth and let's get let's get talking about.
So let's start with Tennessee and Cincinnati, so I get a little disclosure.
Whether it's gonna be probably be a factor in a majority of the games.
There's only one dome game this weekend that's the Colts and Lions.
So you're going to see a lot of the East Coast games there may be impacted by a lot of the weather.
Steve and I were just talking about it before we went live here.
Um, some of my a lot of stuff accounted for the weather, but at that at the same time between now and probably around 11 o'clock, 12 o'clock, that's what I'm really gonna start.
Take the weather into consideration.
I think there's a degree where we kind of like factored into heavily too early in the week where you could just have, like, weather patterns, kind of shift stuff.
But between now and tomorrow, that's what I'm gonna start to really consider it.
But in terms of the Tennessee Cincinnati game, the winds shouldn't be too terrible on at that location that games will be played at Paul Brown Stadium from the Bengals side of the ball.
If you like Borough, there's a lot to like about him.
I mean, he's stoning and in order the amount of times a game.
I mean, it's actually the Bengals have become what the Cowboys Cowboys were a pre dak, and I think Joe mixing being hurt, that was actually helped in terms of Burrows passing attempts.
The one concern I do have for the entire office is the whole actually, is that old line is coming in pretty depleted.
You got Bobby Heart, Tray, Hawkins and Jonah Williams.
They're all out already.
So I'd be curious to see how that line is gonna fare against the Titans defensive line.
David and clown, They practiced in full yesterday.
Um, first, my first lien on that is I think Burrows gonna throw so many times that yeah, even if he is pressure, even even if he does take a few sacks, the volume is gonna be there for him to get to where he needs to go on and and he's got all through this pass catchers to do it.
I mean, he's got Boyd.
He's got Higgins definitely developed quite a nice chemistry.
The course of a J.
Green has suddenly re service.
He's had double digit targets in both the last two weeks, and he's got the value of both the last two weeks and he's a 45 100 again this week.
I mean, if you could get the double digit targets at such a low salary, I mean, he's gonna be highly owned.
For that reason, I would imagine, but yes.
So that's the Bengal.
Send the ball on the Titan side of the ball.
Um, we got Derrick Henry.
Definitely gonna be highly owned.
We're looking at probably between 25 30% projection.
Um, if you want.
If there's clear leverage here, if you want to fade Henry, you could go Tannehill with his pass catchers.
They're definitely not looking at a lot of ownership.
It's just how it depends on how you see this game going, I guess, is in terms of theory.
Do you see this game shooting out? Which I do? I was talking to a buddy of mine.
I do feel like this game does shoot out where, um, have that leverage with Tannehill, Ajanta Smith, A. J. Brown.
You would definitely have leverage over the rest of the field.
That's gonna start Derrick Henry, or you got to decide yourself.
Is that old line gonna keep Barrow intact where you know he's not turning the ball over? He's he hasn't played like a rookie.
He's played like a pretty seasoned vet, but it's a tough It's a taller when you're missing half your line there.
Um, if you feel like that, borough is gonna be under duress the whole day and just making inadvertent throws being forced and he turns over the ball.
I mean it could be just a straight Derrick Henry game, where he's just running all over the arm Bengals defensive line where the Bengals were given up the third most yards per carry there.
So that's where I'm at with that game.
I'm curious what you got on that, Steve, but I like the prospects in this game from a fantasy perspective.
I'm just curious how you think this game is gonna actually play out.
So my opinion on this and, um, I see it as being kind of one of a high scoring game.
We've seen the Bangles over the last month now just kind of give up fantasy points, UH, two opposing offenses and same with the Titans.
Titans aren't they aren't like the best defense right now, as you would think they would be.
They allow a lot of passing yards, not as much rushing, I would say, but this has become one of a like, I think, shootout potential game here.
I like a lot of players in these games and not just daily, but it just regular fantasy football.
This week I said I was high on both the quarterback this week.
They both, I think, in my top, I think 13 right now going into week A.
I mean the wider super core.
I liked him a lot.
I know there was also some weather concerns.
I know what kind of mentioned that before, but I think for the most part you should be fine with these guys.
Geo Bernard and I drop in play kind of guy, uh, in terms of daily, though I really like Jonah Smith.
If I'm not mistaken.
I did that draftkings lineup earlier this week here.
I think it was for your league, actually.
And Jonah Smith is like, down at like, let's see, Sell him someone he wasn't high on.
I mean, he's dirt cheap.
I mean, and the Bengals give up like the top.
Like, I think the top three most fantasy points a game to the tight end position right now.
So if you're looking for a cheap tight end who I don't know why he's so low.
I mean, I guess pass in the last two games, Yeah, you have to understand that he was hurt coming off injury and had tough matchups on.
Now you're getting him so cheap Right now, I really like Jonah Smith This week.
He practiced in full on Friday, but again, he was kind of banged up this week.
Um, due to the possibly the weather conditions, they might not be able to air the ball up that fall down field.
Ryan Tunnel might take those shorter, tight and dump offs right there, and Jonah Smith can do what every can with the ball in his hand.
It's a very impressive and the weakened Bengals defense.
Right now, I really like the opportunity that you're going to get with Jonah Smith for so cheap he's going for.
A lot of these players are cheapest, especially in the tight.
Inside the ball outside of really Derrick Henry.
Um, if you're looking for I think a pretty good play this week, it's this game right here because this is could be going back and forth all day long.
Yeah, and you could stack from a multiple from multiple ways to you.
Could have you could have a nice Tannehill stacked with a J.
Brown Johnny Smith bring it back with, like, one or two off the Bengals pass catchers.
I mean there's the prices aren't egregious.
I mean, you could definitely stack this game in a variety of ways.
Here it's its's.
I'm excited to see how this one plays out.
Like you mentioned with Johnny Smith.
I mean, jeez, the Brown. Alright, Yeah.
The Bengals gave up three touchdowns to tight ends last week to the Harrison Brian and another one toe David and joking.
So they're they're vulnerable and they are right for the picking to that position.
Definitely tonight on Anthony first.
Berck sur, I mean, definitely has potential for a vulture touchdown, as you've seen in the past last year.
And he said it a few times this year.
But now John is a solid play, one of the best cheap tight ends on the board.
Speaking of cheap, though, a J.
Green 4500 on draftkings.
Uh, tell me, is that like that cheap like come on, like, hey, I mean, he's more than return value the last two weeks.
I mean, he just has to cross the pilots, but if he crossed the pylons, I mean, he's that he has the floor of eight catches for 70 yards since Week six.
I mean, I had a touchdown of that.
I mean, you're sitting pretty good.
Is that what, 8 71? That's like 21 drifting points right there.
I mean, that's pretty good for $4500 player.
And it is, I mean and again.
He's seeing double digit targets over the last two weeks.
Now guys again Tennessee.
They do give up receiving yards to the wide receiver position.
I don't expect them to go away from a J. Green.
I think they're trying toe, you know, show like, hey, A J Green still kind of has a kind of mentality with this trade deadline coming up, I think, possibly, and I think you could have another great game and the fact that he's 4500, you can even is that third wide receiver, depending on what format you play on? Uh, I think he's also another steal, kind of like Jonah Smith this week that you should take advantage of.
Personally, I think it made a solid point.
They're actually on a J.
Green and we'll talk about another player is kind of the same.
But when we get to another one of the games, yeah, I mean trade deadlines this Tuesday.
I mean, it's the last chance for teams.
It's kind of showcase some of the players that might be on the block.
This is like I said, this is a shootout kind of game that you should definitely take advantage of and daily, you know, whatever you're playing fantasy football on, this is a game that you want these players in lineups that you want to play this weekend.
So, uh, let's go over to the next game at the Packers.
Vikings Air coming out of the by.
We got a healthy Devin Cook coming into this game.
He wasn't even on the Internet.
Actually, he was off the injury report that I made him given the questionable tag, right, Right, right around 12.
Which was weird.
I mean, he was definitely off, but he comes in with the Q Green Bay and absolute just evisceration off the Texans.
Um, I mean, it could play out the same way as last week, put out not sure who the bike is gonna be starting in the secondary.
I know Cameron Dance Lor is on Kobe.
Let's listen this point.
Ah, lot of their secondary pieces just didn't practice or limited.
So it's right again for another Aaron Rodgers.
Davante Adams just shredding as they actually didn't Week one again.
I mean, Davante Adams.
Um, another 50 spot on the Vikings back in week one.
Traditionally, he has played the Vikings very well again.
One of the bargains that was from last week.
He's He wasn't 4000 last week.
He was bumped up to 6100, but still great play being that Erin Jones is out again, I think from that pack of perspective is definitely right to keep Aaron Jones out of this game.
Because do the Packers need Erin Jones to beat the Vikings? No.
Do they need Erin Jones to be this the 40 Niners on a short week this Thursday? Yes.
Rest him and get him ready for the short week.
So from an ownership perspective, um, Jamal Williams in and Davante Adams, No surprise.
I mean, you're looking at 25 30 30% ownership from the Viking side.
Everybody's coming in pretty low.
We're looking at feeling generating probably the highest ownership at 11.
Everybody else is below 10.
So you got Kirk Cousins and 6000 not inspiring much confidence there.
You got just Jefferson.
He's just been in blow up spots the last few weeks.
He's a 65 100 not projecting pretty well in terms of ownership.
I guess my one concern what this game is, you gotta Packers team that likes to play slow.
No team runs, the runs play slower than the Packers.
Um, dead last, you got a.
So the Packers keep their opponents to play in the third fewest plays per game, and you got the Vikings snapping the ball, the third fewest rate as well.
This game just says to play very, very, very slow, so there's an opportunity for certain players to get to where we need them get.
But in terms of a full blown should it like Week one? I just don't see that in the car, especially because week one I mean, I think even the Packers were kind of off kind of off guard with Vikings just how well they played offensively.
But now you're out of the the friendly doom and your outdoor in the elements to factoring.
You've got winds here that are probably between 2025 miles an hour, and I like the Packers side of the ball trying to warm up to the Vikings.
But maybe Steve can help us get to warming up to that, like inside of the box.
Right now, I just don't have much faith in Kirk Cousins and that bunch in this game.
Yeah, I'm I'm not thrilled with the Viking side of the ball.
I mean, again, it's an outdoor game.
Kirk Cousins you saw last time they played.
I mean, he was I think he had, like, three passes or something like that.
He was very inefficient through, like, three quarters and weak one.
And then at a nowhere in the fourth quarter, he made a huge comeback and had his fantasy relevance like brought back the life there.
I'm not buying it again.
The Packers secretary is pretty tough.
This wind condition is definitely gonna throw things often.
Curt Clawson isn't the best quarterback right now in terms of fantasy football or an NFL football player right now, and I really can't buy into the Viking side of the ball that much.
Honestly, I mean, I like Dalvin cook him coming back that's that's great right there.
I mean, I kind of like Irving Smith Jr.
Um, I want to see how his impact is this week with album could kind of coming back here.
He's probably achieved tight end.
You could get, um, if you're looking for that route right there.
Probably owned under, like 4,544,000.
Whatever it is, hey was looking really good coming back off the back.
The back five perception games for 50 yards, both those.
I'm sure somewhere during this fight I want to find a way to get him more involved because he's just a dynamic pass catcher at the tight end position here.
That is pretty basically a Mitch match if they actually get him on the field.
But I really can't see the Viking side of the ball, and especially in the eye and in daily this week.
That's something that, like, Oh, I gotta have this guy in my light based off of, you know, the matchup or even his dress their their draft price Right now, I just can't see it.
The Vikings side of the ball, I mean, the packer side of the ball.
I like I mean, Monty Adams.
I mean, without I think Minnesota's top two cornerbacks are actually out this week like you mentioned Joe.
I mean, he's gotta be almost a start this week anywhere you put him in his expensive, of course, because he's Davante Adams.
But, uh, he's a great They're a guy.
I kind of want to see if maybe it's to me maybe more of a dark throw.
Eyes A J. Dillan.
They didn't really get him too much involved last week.
But if this game is how it's going to go with this wind conditions, they may look like the Vikings.
This the Falcons This week they activated Quadra Allyson because I knew this game was gonna be more overrun game and he didn't see much.
Dillan is the second in command compared to quality and what would have been, and you could have seen some more carries this possible this week.
While they don't throw with much because of these windy conditions here, and maybe sneaks in for a touchdown this week, it's possible.
Um, you probably don't wanna lose Jamal Williams.
There's some kind of injury, so let A J Dillan if This is a game where the Packers should win.
Let him get more involved in again.
I think he's in from Draftkings.
He's like 4000 right now.
And I did a drafting lined up this weekend.
Anything that's cheap right now, it's kind of hard to really say, Oh, I gotta throw that in my lineup, Really? To me personally and a J Dillan could be that dark throw that could end up paying off for you in the end, Uh, kind of broke up there.
Sorry, but, um, yes, you definitely inspire any any additional comments on the Viking side of all, I guess from Gavin Cooks cooks Perspective.
The targets haven't been there.
They just haven't used them out of the backfield this year.
I don't know what the reasoning on that is, but my fear in this game is that Kirk Cousins, who has all but turn over turn the ball over twice again, just makes this a pretty easy day in the office for the Packers.
I mean, the weather conditions were pretty may dictate that again, like you're mentioning it could be a It could be a more of a mix of a J Dillan in this game to where it's just It's just a strong running attack where they're just kind of the ball on the ground where Kirk cousins got to try to keep up through the air, get some swirling winds and I don't really trust her cousins arms too much, either, where they just find the Packers defender.
I do like the Packers defense of 2900 on draftkings.
I mean, I think that's a very solid play.
Um, if you want it, I mean, in terms, there's some good defense is around like the 25 $2400 range.
But if you want to pay up slightly to get to the Packers, I get there in a good spot here to possibly even bring one back all the way.
Honestly, I mean album cookies expensive, But I mean, I think he's well worth the shot if you're gonna take it.
I mean, the Packers are like one of the worst in the league against the run right now, and they allow both rushing and receiving two running backs this season.
I mean, you saw David Johnson, who's been so inefficient this season, gate almost get over 80 yards.
I mean, Ronald Jones had 100 yards.
Todd Gurley, I mean, had 50 yards.
Camara had over 200 yards. Almost.
I mean, they've given up fantasy points to the running back position, and I mean, they're gonna probably somewhat try to feed Dalvin Cook early to get him involved in this offense.
I mean, if you want to take a deep shot on Alexander Madison, maybe they don't get him that involved that that's That's the That's the other way.
If you can think about it, maybe they get medicine involved in this game.
And he had 50 yards last time against this team here.
Maybe they do something like that again.
I mean, again, that doesn't sound like a great daily fantasy play per se.
But, uh, it's an option if you wanna take those deep shots and go heavy on other players this week.
So, like Steve said a bit about the Atoms, Absolute smash smash smash spot, 8800.
I mean, he's gonna cost you, but I mean, that that's like in secondary is just so beat up.
I mean, it's tough to say he's a must play, because, I mean, if you do play him, you're sacrificing that other areas.
Why? Just one thing to know his Both his blood spots were both in indoor games.
I think what I did discount Waas.
How much Erin Jones was involved in the passing game.
A lot of those targets that would have went to him went.
It went to the Bonta Adams.
So it's It's such a good spot for him.
It's it's gonna be very hard to get off him.
Yeah, that's true.
I mean, there's some great wide receiver.
Is it a pretty priced really low.
I'm sure you've seen them before.
I mean, shot Hagen this cheap.
John Brown's pretty cheap.
Yeah, Darnell duty.
I mean, these are some cheap guys.
You compare with Davante Adams and do some.
Actually, you know, I'm okay because of this situation.
So But let's move on to the Raiders at the Browns.
Another one of the weather games that should see between 20 to 25 mile an hour Wednesday.
Got my dog here to what's going on there, baby.
So Vegas comes into this game and it's a complete threshing of our extraction by the books, Um, Brown's come in a a one of the shootout games.
The Bengals seem to find themselves in Baker.
Mayfield threw five touchdowns, ended up losing O B J for the year, Unfortunately, so it brings into light.
We got Jarvis, Landry and Rashard Higgins, too.
Um, Steve had to mention just a few minutes ago they become in play, but the the big spot here is for Kareem Hunt.
This is probably gonna be Kareem Hunt last game as the feature back, as the Browns do going to buy, and Kevin Stefanski has hinted that Nick Chubb should be ready to go by the time they get back from the weekend.
Bye, alright, sitting there Week nine by.
But he's definitely what I'm looking at him, and he's definitely gonna have high ownership.
But the spot again.
It's kind of like Jamal Williams spot just whether it's gonna play a role.
The Raiders haven't been able to stop anybody on the ground or through the year in terms of running backs.
It feels like it's finally time for Hunt to deliver one of those games that we've kind of expected from him.
The last two weeks here.
It just hasn't amounted to anything.
I mean, Hunt established this week last week with a late getting touched up.
I mean, he was drawing thin there, but he at least got the 1920 points he returned value.
But this spot right here probably said This is going to get yeah again.
I really like this game as well.
Both the defense is in the secondary have allowed passing volume on the Raiders since, in general sense, I mean, they have been 18 who, like you, kind of mentioned who allow fantasy points to running backs right now, guys, I mean, especially in the receiving game.
I think that's something that could see more of an increased this week.
I mean, Cream Hunt.
As the start of the last three weeks, he granted, he played some tough opponents, hasn't really shown me anything that's like like he needs to take over for Nick Chubb like he needs to be the starter like I haven't seen it toe like okay, But I mean, he's seen four targets over the last three weeks now, and I think that could rise this week with the way that the Raiders play, and they just kind of allow receiving backs.
Thio do very well against them.
I said Cream Hunt is almost one of those smash mouth plays you want to play this week to me personally, just because I think he's going to see a book with work here, Even if they might be in somewhat of a shootout situation here, it doesn't matter to me.
I said Baker Mayfield in their car.
I think of both great low options.
I'm sure they're somewhat really low in terms off.
What? Drafting prices, at least drafting prices this week.
Where are they currently? Big? Uh, yeah.
And then Bakers in 61.
A little higher.
I'd probably shoot my shot with Derek Carr personally if I had to choose between the two, because I think the Browns you've seen lately kind of give up a lot of passing yards.
Mean show Joe borrow.
Just go nuts last week against them and some of the shootout fashion.
I mean that you can expect the same from Derek Carr, who I you know, I'm writing an article about him right now, and he's just been a solid quarterback to get you basically 300 yards and two touchdowns every single week.
It's just just a solid floor.
I mean, the ceilings out there and in terms of daily, you probably want that ceiling per se.
But if you're looking for a quarterback just to give you solid floor of probably close to 2025 fantasy points, that's kind of what Derek Carr can give you in a week to week basis.
Um, the receivers, um, I like Landry.
I mean, I like Rashard Higgins.
He's obviously we just mentioned him.
He's the cheaper option right now to kind of go with I like Harrison Bryant right now, in terms of the tight end position.
I don't know where he is currently sitting at this week here, so So he's at 3200 and he's the other player I was thinking up in regards to a trade deadline possibility.
Now I thought the Browns would possibly featuring the joke a little bit more than they did, but they weren't heavy. Harrison Bryant.
Now, I guess my only three only hole I could put with Harrison Brian, but I do like to play well.
The Browns finally get David.
The joke is some volume kind of showcase in before Tuesday.
That's my only fear there.
It's such a good price, though, but that that that that's the one hole, I guess.
Another hole from the Kareem Hunt perspective is why? Why it? Tell her the right guard.
I'm not gonna fade because of that, but just something to consider, I guess.
In terms of roster decisions.
Now, look at us.
Talking about Derek Carr is a model of consistency.
Who would have thought that ever happened? But yeah, so his past catches.
I mean, I know Jesse loves Henry Rugs Absolutely loves Henry Rugs this week.
He's found a few deep balls, Uh, in some games this year to Darren Waller.
Ah, lot to like about him, too.
I mean, he makes up the majority of their target share for the Raiders.
Um, again, another good game here.
I do like a lot.
I like both sides of the ball.
I just want to see how the weather looks come tomorrow morning before I hit the lock button on some of these guys.
But from a fantasy perspective, this game could couldn't put some points on the board Yeah, I actually believe that I should just like the other game, the Titans Cincinnati game.
I expect this to be a high scoring, almost 30 30 kinda finished game here this week.
I mean, just to mention, like I said, it's possible that both David and Jill through and Harrison Bryant are very involved in this offense.
Baker is kind of like his tight ends over his career right now.
Um, and who knows? They could be end up being the more featured role.
As we go into this new week here.
We all think it's Rashard Higgins because he's going to step up is the number two wide receiver.
But it could do a lot.
I've been doing a lot of too tight end sets, and it could just be the tight end game this week against this Raiders team.
On the flip side, I mean, I said I like kind of like their cars.
It is I mean, he's obviously the cheaper option.
Henry Rugs, I think, has an opportunity to do well.
Nelson regular, uh, depending on how this way, he's a great player.
Hey, saw team career, my career, but a season high eight targets this past week.
Um, that is something encouraging, moving forward because he's having been someone of a regenerated season right now, and I kind of like what he's doing right now in this offense.
He kind of fits what they want him to dio, Um, I don't like Josh Jacobs.
I mean, I like him in terms of a regular season.
If you're playing them in, obviously dynasty or redraft leagues.
I like him, but and I believe draftkings.
He's relatively high up there, and I just the way that they've been kind of using him because he doesn't see enough passing Valium for me.
He's seeing like three or four targets a game again.
It's better than what he had last year.
But, um, he kinda gets phase out in terms of when they're like either down or in a shootout situation.
So I don't really like daily this week.
He's just too expensive for my taste.
Granted, he could end up having a three touchdown game because it's just Jacobs, but just the price value, it just doesn't really make sense of what you're getting out of it.
Yeah, I mean, from a Josh Jacobs perspective, you have to have the perfect game script for him to go off, and then we saw that and we won.
That was just a straight run game against Carolina defense.
I just couldn't stop running backs.
But if the Raiders don't end up winning the game, he doesn't produce in terms of the score sheet or fantasy lineups, either.
It's just it's a hit and miss with him, and I just don't.
I just don't see a scenario here where the Raiders or controlling the pace, you know, controlling the game from the start, that he's just so thin here.
I guess it just doesn't.
It's just not gonna work out.
He was such a good receiver in Alabama.
I just don't know why the coaching staff doesn't get him more involved out of the backfield.
But, hey, you can only work with whatever data you got.
I just can't get on the Jacobs bandwagon here.
Not this week again.
Yeah, me neither. It's unfortunate.
I love draw shakeups, have him everywhere and redraft.
But it's not helping this season.
No, unfortunately, we did not see it involvement in the offense, especially when they get down or whatever it may be So hopefully this is a game where maybe the Raiders can hold the Browns.
Probably not, but, uh, that's the dream scenario for Josh Jacobs.
That's why you don't You don't pick up a daily this week, guys. Yeah.
One other note you were mentioning Aguilar pains makers of God.
He was so good when he was one of Super Bowl.
Since 2017 he's found the end zone and 46 games for the Raiders.
Yeah, heaven car got going there.
Um, definitely one of the lower owned players you need to fill out of Ross.
I believe he's 4100 if I looked, but let me start to consider in terms of the lower guys.
We'll talk about some of these values when we get to the end of this, But let's move on to the 49 ers and the Seahawks.
So she also come into this game off, probably the game of the year from just a really football time perspective.
I mean, that game, which is full of fireworks, it was one of the best games of the year, and those two teams will probably play.
They will play on Thursday night in a few weeks again.
Um, so again, we mentioned Tyler Lockett off a just absolutely just thrashing of the Cardinals.
He absolutely torched that secondary all day long.
Kind of left d k.
Metcalf in the dust a little bit.
What we've noticed all year is they Usually they don't go off at the same time.
So usually it's flip flop where if it's locket one week, it's the calf.
The other guess the only thing with this week is D.
Metcalf is the higher price auction 600 while Lockett still I mean, given the game he tender at Sunday night Price and, of course, to he's still at somebody 100.
He is cheaper than he kept d K.
Metcalf from the 40 Niners side of the ball.
I mean, Casey offices, giving up a floor of 26 drafting points, toe every quarterback not named Kirk Cousins.
So, I mean, that's that's sin of a Seahawks defense is just right for taking.
So Deebo sandals out for this game.
So you got Brandon A.
You get 5800, he's used out of the backfield as a rusher, too, So they're going.
They're going to use him for some run plays.
On top of just pretty much is a smash spot for him.
Eso We already got Shaquille Griffin after this game.
The rest of their safeties between Ryan Meal.
You have Jamal Adams.
They're both questionable.
Who's the other guy? Forget, but he's doubtful.
So there is secondary already rubbed up all your been just thorn apart.
They could be without three safeties again, three of their primary safeties.
So, I mean, it's such a smash spot for Jimmy Garoppolo, who is? He is very underpriced again for the matchup he will be facing these 5400.
You got a you got 58 then probably one of my favorite place in the week.
I'm surprised he's gonna be his own.
That I've seen him coming in at is George Kittle, especially if Jamal Adams does sit, which I don't That's gonna be a game time decision there.
But if he does sit out, I mean, I like him now.
I'll love him even more if we get a Jamal Adams sitting out again.
Um, definitely of concern is thesis out of running back situation, so it looks like Carlos Hyde is not going to be playing this game.
It looks like Travis Homer is trending towards playing, and Chris Carson is a truly questionable decision headed into tomorrow.
Dallas at $4000.
I mean, in my opinion, it's just such a thin play on Lee because this game it's gonna be played at four o'clock.
You already have your first set of games already being played.
So more or less, you're more all your God's gonna played for the most part, unless you're starting most your players from the 34 o'clock games. Where to go.
But, ah, lot of the running back place from the one o'clock aims to stand up so much taller than the running back place at four.
So, yeah, it's one of those things that if d.
Dallas was going to see all the touches I'd consider him.
But I know he's gonna get Samarra ship.
I just don't I just don't see.
It's just to think of a play for me.
I can't get there.
Yeah, I'm on board with you.
I mean it, Really, If everyone were to be out, obviously, yeah, that's a That's a smash right there.
But the fact that Travis Homer is probably gonna play, I think Chris Carson plays in this game.
I mean, I read I was listening to a podcast where they were saying that you know, coaches When they say the game time decision, they're mostly gonna play.
I mean, they have an idea that they're probably gonna play.
Um, there's no such thing as a real game time decision, eyes just, you know, they think he's in a piece good, but they just want to test it out, you know, during the warm up.
So I think he's gonna play.
So that kind of turns me off of D.
Plus, if it was just Travis, Homer, D J.
Dallas, I still wouldn't like it.
Travis Homer is a really good running back still, and this morning on his defense, have not been great for running backs this season.
So it's not something that I'm like God to smash on.
And I expect this to be somewhat of a high scoring game, especially with Seattle having toe probably stay up with the 40 Niners offense who will probably see a great week this week.
I mean, you mentioned all the great players I want just mentioned Kendrick born.
He's priced at 3200 right now in draft Kings.
I mean, he's a smash.
I mean, whenever either Debo are Brennan on your car in the lineup, he usually has a pretty decent game overall on with the matchup being so favorable.
I really like his value this week.
Um, in terms of you mentioned D K.
Metcalf entire locket, I probably go the locket side.
Um it will really depend on who DK match DK matches up with.
Jason Burnett kind of matches up with him.
You probably probably got about.
I mean, he was a Chargers quarterback for many years and just I got injured like three straight seasons.
Uh, now he's on the 40 Niners, and he's like the sixth range cornerback this season, allowing just four catches for 24 yards in four games on the season s o.
Just note that I mean, obviously gonna play DK and regular but daily.
You might want to just maybe look for Tyler Lockett and said because he is the cheaper option.
But this game should be another fun game to watch division game.
I mean, should be somewhat fun.
Came that actually, really sit down and hopefully produce some good daily fantasy numbers for you.
Yeah, so I just think about it from a game theory perspective.
In the best case scenario would be the Seahawks pulling ahead where the 40 Niners have to keep up, especially because the Seahawks Stevens becomes such a passport.
I mean, they've been so good on on the ground because at the 40 Niners try to $40 take the lead.
They I mean, they like to run the ball.
They're gonna try to run the ball and try to keep the ball to Russia's hand.
But if Russ, you know Russ gets a lead, I mean, Jimmy's gonna try to keep up.
That's gonna be the best case scenario for all of us in terms off raw string players on both sides, the ball.
In this game, it's easier to stack Niners with Jimmy Garoppolo is cheap price tag than it will be probably with Ross, because a Ross Lockett and Metcalf sticks probably gonna cost you more or less between.
I think if I had the president's like 23,000, I mean That's almost half your salary right there versus a kittle a yuk and, um, Jimmy G stack.
That's gonna be between, I think 17. 18.
So if you could you could have that stack and bring it back with one of the Seahawks, whether it be a locket or Metcalfe.
That's only that That brings you right to half of your salary to where we're going to talk about some cheap options to at all these other positions.
You could definitely get that in, but you could definitely get into stocks.
Weren't supposed to be a little bit tougher.
One for you? Yeah, definitely, definitely. Definitely this.
I said this should be a good game for the most part, Supreme Commander.
Like the bed with your get up high.
What? We're gonna be having air the ball out much more throughout the week, so I like it.
Well, that covers the games were to cover.
That's gonna be the games with primarily the highest ownership in regards to just overall plays.
Let's take a look at draftkings and kind of discuss some of the plays that we like and don't like.
You'll see Jesse and my article that should release by today.
So we're gonna cover some of the place that we, um, like from that article and some of the ones that we don't.
So let's talk about Patrick Mahomes first.
I mean, look, we all know Andy Reid loves to do.
He loves to run the ball.
I mean, I think a lot of people are going to see that the Chiefs are favored by three touchdowns.
It's gonna be like a pass heavy attack, Could it? Sure.
Especially when you gotta love Ian Bell, right? Revenge narrative in here to where I'm sure he's gonna read.
Gonna wanna feed Bell the ball.
But I'm going to believe that Andy Reid the one trick pony most of the time he likes to throw the ball.
So if you wanted to get my homes in with a hill or a Kelsey or both, that stack's gonna go.
That's not gonna come in at high ownership.
I think people just feel like they're gonna run the ball with such a high spread their, um, Aaron Rodgers.
I mean, we talked about hand smashed spot there, Lamar Jackson.
I mean, Pittsburgh solid defense, but they've given up some points this year.
I mean, they gave up 28 or 29 of the Eagles.
They just gave up 24 to the Titans last week.
Debbie respect that defense, but it can be had Josh Allen and a pretty good spot against the Patriots team that just can't score.
I mean, they've averaged 9.
66 points the last three weeks.
Definitely came with some of those pass catchers.
And how Steve feels about Devin Cemetery total Just Yuck! Yup.
Spot there, Tannehill.
Great spot again.
Justin Herbert, man, he is.
He looks so poised right now.
Definitely looks like a rookie of the year.
Like his spot against Denver.
Joe Burrow again.
We already discussed.
And yeah, definitely the cheapest of the options I would consider again.
We've mentioned both would be Derek Har and Jimmy Garoppolo.
Let's go to the running back way.
Haven't talked about Kamar here, but hard not to like tomorrow.
But again, I was getting you always.
You always get concerned how much the TVs murder is gonna be involved.
I guess I'm still kind of Tauron from Week four.
I thought that was just absolutely smashed.
But, man, it's obvious Mary voters.
Two touchdowns from us.
But yeah, I mean, they do the scenes like Latavius Murray.
I mean, that's just one thing we've seen.
Definitely something about a factor.
And if you're going to roster tomorrow as the highest running back price on draftkings, we already talked about Derrick Henry.
Dalvin Cook, Kareem Hunt.
Here's one, and it's definitely a tournament play.
But, man, we've seen Erin Jones destroy the lines.
We've seen a few few teams destroy the lines, but if there was ever a week and he's coming off a week of rest, too, I guess my only concern is how much George Wilkins gets involved.
But this is a spot for Jonathan Taylor to get it right now.
What do you think, Steve? There.
I mean, that I I love him as a 20 play.
I don't know about cash, but this is a good spot for him to get right and really get it going for the second half of the season.
Yeah, see, the thing is with me this year, I've really looked at by weeks and see how rookies come back after the bye week.
You know, you forget that there's no prison this year, guys.
And they didn't have time to really evaluate these rookies that really get them into a game plan that you're comfortable with, and then you see them as you throw them in.
Throughout the year, we've seen rookies kind of go on and off here and there.
And then you see that some of the math thereby weeks, get more involved like the Andre Swift has over the last couple weeks with Detroit here.
And while Jonathan Taylor has been so so so far, we really haven't seen him go off off yet.
And again, the matchups kind of right.
Uh, and I like him.
This week is in a general sense, if you can play him.
And if it makes sense for what you're doing with your daily fantasy plays, if you're willing to spend up on him this week again, he's high up there.
Uh, this could be the week that he comes out and just kind of dominates against a really good not really good, but it really poor lines rush defense right now, so I'll I Jonathan tailors and in general sense.
But if it makes sense for you to play him with based off your lineup this week, then play them.
If you're looking for some savings.
Miles Gaskins gets all the volume.
We're looking for a Jordan Howard and active for that to be even better in play.
We got we got that Dolphins represented right there.
But I really like what? What they're doing Miles gas, because I'd be curious to see how it's gonna be utilized on with two.
Uh, in his first start.
It looks like Mark Ingram is doubtful, so it puts E.
Dobbins and Gus Edwards. Gus Gus Edwards.
A cheap salaries in play.
The Steelers rush defense is one of the best in the league.
Something want to keep in mind there? Let's go toe wide receiver eso again.
Davante Adams, D.
K. Metcalf Entire. Lock it.
We all know how they are.
I a lot like we already talked about it.
When we're talking about that game, it's a good leverage spot for a J.
Brown being that a lot of the ownership is gonna go to Derrick Henry and for good reason.
But if that game does become more of the shootout, Roddy or if the Bangles somehow do take a lead.
Brown is gonna need to get them back in that game.
And he's gonna comes into such low ownership.
I mean, from the Bills perspective, I only like Josh Allen, the pass catchers.
I don't want to start any bills running back or anybody on the New England side of the ball.
I'm not even touching it.
Tyree kill again.
We were talking about Patrick Mahomes.
If you're of the theory that, um, Andy Reed's gonna throw the ball, I mean that yet secondaries wanted to be burned.
And what better got to do that than one of the fastest receivers in the league? Tyler Boyd.
I mean, all the Cincinnati Pass catchers are in good spots.
It's just a matter.
Can you get to Tyler Boyd? A 66 100? Because his matchup does project pretty well.
We got Keenan Allen, Keenan Allen.
Oh, man, I don't think the secret, the secrets that it's out there right now.
I mean, Justin Herbert looks to him and looks often.
I just don't get how Draftkings did not raise his price last week.
He was 6200 last week off double digit targets, and he's 6200 again this week.
And I think that's where the attention is coming in is that people just noticed.
I mean, they didn't raise his price and he had double digit targets in every game that be completely.
We've actually been able to be burned on the deep ball.
They don't have many weaknesses on defense, but they could be burned by the deep, deep pass mark.
He's a tournament player, but he's an interesting play, you know, to consider if you want to get, like, leverage, all the rest of field with some of these pretty other common plays.
Jarvis Landry we've talked about.
He should definitely see increased volume with O.
D B out of play for the rest of the year.
We got Corey Davis on the opposite side, the opposite A. J. Brown.
He's 5100 again.
Henry rugs, Definitely a play we want to consider.
And again Nelson Aguilar, who Steve mentioned definitely like the chemistry he has developed with Derek Carr, where it gets to some of the lower and got definitely warrants, some merit.
With Alan Robinson coming in this game as doubtful, Darnell Mooney definitely comes into the radar.
If anybody watching Monday night game he was, Hey was probably a few seconds away of Nick Foles being pressured from Actually completed that pass because Darnell Moody had nothing but space.
He was going all the way, probably for not man like a 95 yard touchdown.
He was right there and, like Steve said, he did see nine targeted in a game this year, so we know we could get targets out of him again.
It's just so hard to warm up to the Patriots offense right now, But with and Kill Harry out and Julian Edelman out, you got your Kobe Myers of 3500 again, Kendrick born e would say He's a low floor.
I mean medium floor, low ceiling kind of player.
But he would definitely feel a roster for those who for those who need to have a cheap option, you got Denzel Memes on the Jets side of the ball.
It Zhar to get too excited about the Jets, but again, 30 to 100.
If you need to fill out a roster spot, it's a shame.
Jamison Crowder, in the games he's played, has just been an absolute just.
I mean, he's been incredible, But again, he's sitting out.
You got the markets. Robinson.
I guess it's an option if the Chiefs do just blow the doors off the Jets, so he's going to see increased snaps while the rest of the starters sit.
So he's an auction that if you need to get that lower 31 you can always bring him into Let's go to tight end.
We got Kittel at the top again.
I mentioned I love kill this week, Kelsey.
He's all but the most consistent tight end in the league.
The only reason why he didn't reach double digit points is because he didn't need to.
I mean, she's had a defensive touchdown.
Any special teams touchdown where the offense is the whole really didn't get to where we, you know, you would expect them to get Darren Waller.
We already discussed my kasicky against the Rams.
He's a play for me. Jimmy Graham.
He's gonna be another beneficiary of Alan Robertson sitting Jimmy Graham gets a saint's defense that has been all but ra***ed too tight ends all year.
The scenes have given up a touchdown to the tight end in all but one game in that game was last week.
It's actually because the Panthers just don't use the tight enemy Ian Thomas week.
So on our site, we did a episode of my guys.
I definitely want to retract my my guy of Ian Thomas.
He's just been straight. Horrible.
I expect a lot more. Just hasn't worked out.
He's gonna come in low ownership.
I think a lot of people expect a lot more out of him.
Definitely burned some people last week against the Jags again, We already talked about Johnny Smith.
Great spot there.
And then again joke you and Harrison Smith.
And if you really want to get Ah, little cheaper and what we expect to have a ****ing offense operating out of negative, get game strip.
Smith 3000 definitely could help you get some savings in there, and then we'll go toe defense real quick.
Um, hard not to love the Chiefs just hard to get them at 4500, the Rams against two on his first start deftly and play there.
We already talked about the Packers, but my other favorite defense again because we've already discussed the Patriots defense are the Patriots offense has just been flat out awful the last few weeks.
They're gonna be missing receivers.
Is the Bills at 3300, their prices just honestly, to cheat for Thean efficient inefficiency at New England? On their offense? I had mentioned some of the cheaper defense's I was considering Deputy Lions.
Um, yeah, I do like Jonathan Taylor spot, but Philip Rivers just just been destroyed awful since Week one.
I don't know what's going with that offense as a whole, but they've just been I don't know.
I don't know if they if they've considered, maybe, I mean, they just invested so much money and Rivers said, maybe they won't even consider your Kobe percent coming in.
But I mean, they that office definitely needs some life, and hopefully that starts this week.
But I do like the lines defense just based on how the Colts have played lately and and I guess, e guess the cheapest I would go.
Maybe the Dolphins.
I'm not inspired by the play, but I don't want to get any cheaper than that because Vikings, Bengals jets, I don't want to touch it.
Ooh, I like the Bears this week.
I do like the Bears at 2800 on draftkings.
I mean, Drew Brees outside of his element, windy conditions.
I mean, they're strong run defense to, uh I wouldn't be surprised if Chicago somehow pulls this game off, and they actually have a really good game this week.
I wouldn't be surprised at all about that.
Drew Brees on the road ain't the best.
So, yeah, I got the Yeah, I forgot to mention the Titans to for the aforementioned reasons With that Bengals airline 3000.
Not horrible, I guess.
Depends what you think How that game is gonna play out.
Is there anyone else you wanted to mention? But yeah, that's gonna That's going to do it.
Um, again, Just keep an eye on the weather between now and tomorrow.
We pretty much have everything ready for us.
I mean, there's three only, really.
I guess thing we're waiting on.
And I know personally, I'm not because I'm not going to get there because, I mean, it's it's the late game is just a Seattle running back situation.
All the pieces been laid out for us.
We know what's what's there.
I mean, even last week.
I mean, we have to wait till till Sunday morning for Erin Jones.
Be declared out has already been declared out.
So we already know what we're gonna do.
It's just a matter of making the right place.
And hopefully I know on my end, I definitely have a good a better week than I did last week.
That's all we ever wish for.
Just a better weekend the week before.
That's what I always say.
All right, s so I guess we'll wrap this thing up there.
