QUARTERBACKS

Image placeholder title

Trubisky - I was extremely high on Mitch and company during the pod Thursday night, but wind and poor weather have mea bit worried. I still love the matchup and if it's just wind, I'm still rolling Mitch out on my main line. Coming in with 3 straight 300 yard games, along with 181 combined rushing yard in those games.

Rodgers - In 3 homes games this year (Taking out the Arizona game early in the year) the Rams have allowed 302 passing yards a game. Rodgers comes in with a healthy set of receivers, in a game that should be high scoring. Play him naked or with Adams.

Goff - He's back at home where's he's averaged 382 yards a game and has thrown 9 td's. Cooper Kupp is out, so this will be the Woods and Cooks show today.

Image placeholder title

Luck - He's very quietly put together 3 out of 4 games with 4 td's. Indy is going into Oakland who I think will play better and score enough for Luck to continue to throw.

 Others I like 

Roethlisberger

Stafford

RUNNING BACKS 

Image placeholder title

Connor - He torched this team in week 1 touching the ball 37 times and scoring 31 FanDuel points. Cleveland has been torched on the ground and should continue this week in Pittsburgh.

Mixon - This is a game flow play. I expect Cincy to get Bad Winston this week and set themselves up with great field position a few times in this game. Mixon will get all the red zone touches he can handle, so he should get in the box.

Image placeholder title

DJ - Byron Leftwich has taken over the play calling duties for Arizona. He's a Bruce Arians type guy, who unleashed DJ in 2016. DJ should be used early and often in this game and we can hope Leftwich has been creative drawing plays to help a struggling O-Line.

Cohen - 30 targets in the last 3 games, and will be heavily used again this week especially if Allen Robinson it out.

Image placeholder title

Hunt - Going against the worst run D in the league, where he's already torched them for 121 yards earlier in the year. He's priced down on DK, and IF you fade the KC passing game, get a share of him cause you know they're going to score some way.

Richard - Lynch is on IR, and Cooper was traded. He'll be involved in the passing game, and a little bit on the ground. This is more of a DK play with his catching ability.

WIDE RECEIVERS 

Brown/Juju - It's Ben and company at home where we like to play them more. Both of these guys went off in week 1, and should do more of the same this week.

Image placeholder title

Adams - Rams have allowed more passing yards at home, while Adams has been peppered with targets all year. This is one of the better offenses this Rams D has seen, and Adams will get his catches and yards this week.

 Cooks/Woods - Both guys have been monsters at home combining for 4 100 yard games this year. 

Cooks/Woods - Both guys have been monsters at home combining for 4 100 yard games this year. 

Image placeholder title

Hilton - Luck should air it out this week, and I expect no one to be on Hilton. Ryan Grant is out this week as well, so TY should get a few more targets his way.

Gabriel/Miller - Correlations with Trubisky. Miller has the better matchup in the slot where the Jets have really struggled.

Others I Like 

Jordy

Golladay/Tate

Brown

TIGHT END 

Image placeholder title

Howard - He's gone for over 62 yards in 4 straight games, while also scoring double digit DK points.

Njoku - Pittsburgh leaks points to tight end and Njoku has seen 6 or more targets in 4 straight games. He's also scored in back to back games.

Uzomah - Tight ends against Tampa.

DEFENSE

Chicago

Pittsburgh

Cincy
