Julian Edelman gets hurt, ODB drops a TD and I still more than doubled my money in my tournament and easily won my 50/50. No big deal people, lets move along. I hear FanDuel isn’t placing bets in New York anymore. Well lets just say these are for people outside the Empire State (lol.) Here are my favorite plays for week 11…..
QB – Mark Sanchez vs.TB ($6,600) – SHOCKING NEWS: Sam Bradford is injured. Now it’s Sanchez’s chance to take charge of this offense. Tampa’s defense is nothing to write home about (20th vs. QB’s) and his price is too low not to be mentioned. In just 9 games last year, Sanchez threw for 14 touchdowns and averaged 269 yards through the air. I expect similar numbers in Philadelphia on Sunday.
QB – Matt Ryan vs. IND – ($7,800) – “Matty Ice” is coming off a bye and has the easiest matchup of the top-tier guys. With some many bargains at running back and wide reciever, he will definitely be on one my teams.
QB – Case Keenum @ BAL ($4,800) – Case Keenum? Not gonna lie I had to YouTube the guy because I was extremely skeptical. But the guy can sling the rock and is SOOOOOOOOOOOOO cheap. The Baltimore Ravens are 31st against QBs and that might be all the help he needs. Try entering him into your lineup and see how many elite players you can put on your squad.
RB – Charcandrick West @ SD ($7,100) – Charcandrick might have more confidence than Kanye after last week’s performance. West DESTROYED the Broncos gaining 162 total yards and two touchdowns in Denver. San Diego is the worst team in the league defending the run and that is why Charcandrick is my play of the week. *****
RB – Darren Mcfadden @ MIA ($6,800) – “Run DMC” had an off week, but he is the only running back in Dallas and with Tony Romo back he will have more room to operate. He’s always good for at least a few receptions and Miami is really bad against the run (31st.)
RB – Danny Woodhead vs. KC ($6,400) – The Chargers are limited at receiver and Woodhead is a reliable ball-catcher out of the backfield. He will most likely be on these posts for the rest of the season considering his price.
RB – Devonta Freeman vs. IND ($9,100) – It’s a tough call between Freeman and Gurley this week, but I’m giving the nod to the Devonta because he is coming off a bye and is playing a worse defense in a dome.
RB – Lamar Miller vs. DAL ($7,500) – Despite not being able to run the ball effectively, Lamar keeps on getting into the end-zone. He has 7 TDs in the past 5 games and Dallas hans’t figured out how to stop the run.
WR – Julio Jones vs. IND ($9,100) – Plug him in and play him. Lets get serious people.
WR – Danny Amendola vs. BUF ($6,100) – Julian Edelman is currently in a boot, and Amendola fits perfectly into his role. Danny is cheaper than a hooker with no teeth and will be targeted heavily at home. AMEN-dola.
WR – Amari Cooper @ DET – ($7,200) Cooper is a top 10 receiver with top 5 potential this week in Detroit. His speed will work effectively on Ford Field’s turf.
WR – Stevie Johnson vs. KC – ($6,600) – Johnson is the only healthy wideout in San Diego. That helps when your QB (Rivers) has the 2nd most passing yards behind Tom Brady.
WR – Brandon Lafell vs. BUF ($6,100) I like Lafell for the same reasons I like Amendola. Additionally, he is a deep threat making him a great tournament play.
TE – Greg Olsen vs. WAS ($6,400) Greg Olsen keeps on winning me money. Washington is good against tight ends, but Olsen is too consistent not to play at his price.
TE – Jordan Reed @ Carolina ($5,800) Reed has scored in three straight games and has 5 TDs in that period. His price is great but his value depends on his ability to score.
Kicker – Dan Bailey @ MIA ($4,600) – I don’t explain kickers.
Defense – Jets D @ HOU (4,700) The Jets have a talented defense and are facing TJ Yates who is not good. They are a low risk option with a high ceiling.
I will have my team out tomorrow.
