Andrew Luck (7,100) I feel this is a very cheap price to pay for a Quarterback who throws the ball as much as anyone and does not have a great running game to steal away points.He is averaging 40 attempts a game for just under 300 yards per game.Even though it seems he has struggled Luck has 10 touchdowns compared to just three interceptions.Luck’s opponent this week is the Texans without there star JJ Watt. They are much less of a threat without him and have yet to by challenged by a top notch QB in 2016.I see a higher scoring game than the vegas over under of 46.5 and Luck is starting to look like the fantasy stud we have been waiting for.
PROJECTION 330 Passing yards with 3 TD and 25 yards rushing and 0 interceptions.
Blake Bortles (6,300) Bortles is coming off a bye week and I am looking for the 3rd year Quarterback to rebound from a slow start.He will be playing the Chicago Bears on Sunday and the vegas line has the over under at 47.5.Thats is decently high in the NFL and that should translate into some big plays in the pass game.Chicago was torched last week by Andrew Luck and T.Y. Hilton.Bortles looks to do the same with his stud WR combination of Allen Robinson and Allen Hurns.Running Back Chris Ivory has come back and I believe will help the offense with his hard nosed running and toughness.Also Bortles has some wheels and can pick you up sneaky points on the ground.Feel confident playing him and do not expect his salary to stay low.
PROJECTION 290 Passing Yards with 3 TD and 35 Rushing Yards and 1 Interception.
Carson Wentz (6,000) 280 Passing Yards 2 TD and 35 Rushing yards and 0 interceptions.
Brian Hoyer (5,800) 285 Passing Yards 2 TD and 1 interception.
Le’Veon Bell (7,900) Bell has a hefty price tag but I can not state enough how consistent he has been.He has played in 24 games the last 3 seasons and in those games he has averaged 130 total yards! And to throw sugar on top Draft Kings is PPR and Bell has averaged over 5 catches a game in those 24 games.Injury concerns have limited Bell along with
suspensions.The greatest thing about daily fantasy football is it’s only week to week and when Bell is healthy like he is now there is no more of a guarantee then him.Pittsburgh is just plain scary to any defense and Miami has already been kind to a few fantasy backs this year.I usually look for more lower priced upside guys but pay the price with Bell and find any which way to get him into your lineup.
Projection 115 Rushing Yards and 2 TD with 5 rec. and 52 yards receiving
Jordan Howard (6,200) Howard is a rookie RB who has jumped on the scene with back to back 100 yard rushing performances.He has been the only healthy back and has feasted on the workload.Also has been effective in the pass game and accounted for his first NFL touchdown on a pass this past sunday.He faces the Jaguars and after a lot of hype with the off season moves they have yet to sniff anywhere close to elite status.They have given up 4 rushing TD in 4 games and my feeling is Howard will get his first career rushing TD.Head Coach John Fox might not be coaching here long but in between he will do what he loves and that is run the football.Howard is as hot as anyone and even though his salary cap number has soared in two weeks he is still well worth 6,200.
PROJECTION 105 Rushing Yards and 1 TD with 4 receptions and 40 yards
Jammal Charles (5,000) 60 Rushing Yards with 6 receptions for 65 yards and 1 TD.
Isaiah Crowell (4,800) 90 Rushing Yards and 1 TD with 2 reception for 18 yards.
Allen Robinson (7,800) A-Rob matches up against a Chicago Bears secondary that has been just decimated with injuries.Along with a weak pass rush Bortles should have plenty of time to find his favorite target.Robinson is a target monster and leads the team with 41 targets in 4 games.In the red zone Bortles will look for Robinson more than ever with 27 red zone targets the last 2 years that have helped him to an amazing 17 TD.The offense is on the up and up after a strong showing in England and the Jaguars look to take advantage of the extra time off after the bye week.I expect more numbers looking like they did last year for Robinson and against the Bears I am calling for a big play or 2 finally out of the big talented WR. PROJECTION 7 receptions for 140 and 1 TD
Julian Edelman (6,800) The slot receiver supreme has finally got his QB behind center and is looking to tear the league up.I know I will get some grief for Edelman’s lack of production in week 5 against the Browns but not everyone can always get fed.That makes me all the more excited that Brady will make sure his favorite WR gets as many chances to shine as possible.The Bengals struggled with Cole Beasley and no offense to him but Edelman is the top slot WR in the league by far.In 2015 with Brady as the QB Edelman averaged 10 targets a game and I see that staying the same this year.Since the QB is playing so well those targets seem to be just long hand offs and 7 or 8 of those targets will be completions.Meaning points on your scoreboard for Draft Kings.
PROJECTION 9 Receptions for 97 yards and 1 TD.
Sammie Coates (4,700) 4 receptions for 95 yards and 1 TD.
Cole Beasley (4,400) 8 receptions 70 yards and 1 TD.
Delani Walker (5,500) Walker and the Titans are coming off there best showing of the year and come into week 6 with an even better matchup verse the Browns.Cleveland has allowed 5 TD’s to Tight Ends in just the last 2 weeks!I swear that has to be a record and you also have to throw in a separate 100 yard performance from Gronk.At 5,500 draft king players should be licking there lips and with a decent price should be able to stack there team elsewhere.When healthy he is by far the number 1 option in the pass game and as of now his health is not a question.Mariota well look often to the TE and against a bad team it is truly a dream matchup.
PROJECTION 6 Receptions for 80 yards and 2 TD.
Jimmy Graham (4,900) Coming back from the dead to have back to back 6 reception 100 yard games Jimmy Graham is now back in the conversation as a top fantasy TE in the game.In August I was screaming his name and after a slow start Russell Wilson is now depending on the 6’7 former basketball star.I believe last years slow start was a little over stated and he was actually averaging the exact same amount of yards as he was in 2014 with the Saints.This could be a sneaky high scoring game and the Seahawks will need to expose the Falcons that have give up 300 yards passing per game. Tight Ends Olsen and Fleener had a combined 175 and 2 TD’s and Atlanta struggled to match up the comparable TE’s.Love the price and the upside.
PROJECTION 5 Reception for 85 yards and 1 TD.
Zach Miller (3,800) 5 Receptions 55 yards and 1 TD.
Hunter Henry (3,300) 4 Receptions 50 yards and 1 TD.
