Did I tell you Matthew Stafford was my favorite play of the week? Did I divulge to you LaGarette Blount was my favorite running back? Did I communicate that Megatron was gonna score? Did I guarantee a Gronk TD? YEAH I FUGGIN DID. Did I listen to my own advice and take them? MAYBE. Either way I’m kicking up the dirt and am taking you home this week with a victory. Wait for it……….I GUARANTEE IT.
QB – Carson Palmer vs. BAL ($8,200) – Why wouldn’t I take Palmer this week? A few dropped passes by Cardinals receivers in the end zone cost him from another beastly game last week. He is facing a secondary in the Ravens that is wait for….LAST against opposing QB’s in fantasy. Also, did I mention Carson was a Public Policy major at USC?
RB – Mark Ingram @ IND ($7,800) – Mark Ingram is a monster and if you saw what happened last Sunday in Indy with LaGarette you will notice that they don’t tackle well. How do you bring down a train? I’m not sure you can.
RB – Todd Gurley vs. CLE ($7,400) – The rookie sensation looks healthy and fast. Gurley’s rushing attempts has increased the past two weeks (19, 30) and so has his rushing yards (146, 159). When you exquisitely calculate that with the crappy Browns rushing defense your product is…well…..golden poo.
WR – Julio Jones @ TEN ($9,100) – Julio is off the injury report for the first time since week one. He is the most talented receiver in the game and will show it Tennessee this weekend. He’s gonna score people.
WR – John Brown vs. BAL ($6,700) – I’m really not sure why Brown’s price is so low. He got targeted 14 times last week and exploded for 196 yards. Imagine if he had a TD? P.S. The Ravens defense is 31st against wideouts.
WR – Donte Moncrief vs. NO ($6,500) – Speaking of bad defenses, New Orleans gets torched each week and is looking like one of the worst of all time. The Saints allow 410 yards per game. Plus Moncrief has been targeted more than hot chicks in a bar when Luck is in the lineup ( 11, 8, 7, 9, 11).
TE – Charles Clay @ JAX – ($5,500) – With Harvin and Watkins out Tyrod Taylor has very few talented people to throw to. Think about it: his wide receivers this week are Chris Hogan and Robert Woods. I expect him to rely on his security blanket Clay as they go into Jacksonville and win a close game.
K- Matt Prater – ($4,500) – Cheap and home in a dome.
Defense – St Louis Rams – ($4,500) – I’m not sure how they are so cheap at home vs. the Browns but I will take it.
