Eli Manning – ($7,700) Eli threw for 368 yards (32-41) last week against the Saints, yet he failed to throw any touchdowns. His price is relatively low for a man of his stature, especially due to the fact that his weapons at wide receiver are as dangerous as that come. He should be fine at home vs. the Redskins.
Melvin Gordon – ($7,100) – Urban dictionary defines the word melvin as “person or persons whom take part in geek like activities such as math competitions, chess competitions, x-box parties etc. basically a nerd, dweeb, geek, etc.” This is pretty insensitive to a guy that just lost his partner in crime (Danny Woodhead) to a season ending injury. Last week he rushed 24 times for 102 yards and a touchdown while securing all three of his targets. I love him this week against the Colts.
Charles Sims – ($6,300) Doug Martin is out for three weeks and Sims will be the leading ball-carrier for the time being. He has shown fantasy potential even as a backup in PPR leagues, and is a slam dunk play at that price.
Antonio Brown – ($9,500) I can’t believe this is the first time I am writing about AB all year. I love the guy more than chicks love pumpkin flavor coffee. Going up against an Eagles squad that hasn’t faced even a remotely good offense yet, he should be the number one receiver this week.
Allen Robinson – ($7,900) AROB has been the biggest disappointment thus far at wide receiver, but it’s not because of a lack of targets (20). Look for him to get his season going this week vs. the Ravens.
Travis Benjamin – ($6,900) Benjamin has slid into the slot of number one receiver in the absence of Keenan Allen. He caught all six of his targets for 115 yards and two touchdowns in Sunday’s 38-14 win over the Jaguars. Phillip Rivers has no other choice than to trust him.
Dennis Pitta – ($5,000) Pitta had over 100 receiving yards last week and is cheaper than a night out in Vietnam.
Dan Bailey – ($4,700) I don’t explain kickers.
Dolphins defense – ($4,600) There isn’t one particular defense I love this week besides the Seahawks who are way out of my price range. They are definitely a safe play vs. the Browns who are starting Cody Kessler.
