Panthers QB Kyle Allen
Faces a Falcons defense that has allowed a league worst 113.2 opponent’s passer rating.
Falcons RB Brian Hill
Panthers allow the 4th most fantasy points to opposing running backs. Hill should have a bell cow role.
Ravens WR Marquise “Hollywood” Brown
Ignore the lack of targets of targets the last 2 weeks. Brown goes deep vs. a Texans defense that has allowed the 3rd most fantasy points to opposing Wide Receivers.
Raiders TE Darren Waller
Streak of 3 clunkers ends vs. the slump busting Bengals.
Vikings K Dan Bailey
Broncos defense gives up an average of 18.9 Points per game, but has given up a league high 22 field goals.
Home matchup with Ryan Finley led Bengals. Raiders young players have started to turn the corner.
Steelers Defensive Back Minkah Fitzpatrick
4 interceptions in the last 3 games. Baker Mayfield is careless with the ball and has thrown 12 picks.
Warriors PF Eric Paschall
Shooting 54% from the floor and 90% from the charity stripe. On an injury riddled Warriors team, Paschall has carved out a significant role. 4-games this scoring period makes Paschall worth using in all formats.
Celtics SG/ SF Jaylen Brown
Gordon Hayward is out for the foreseeable future with a broken hand. Brown is averaging 18.8 PPG in 5 contests this season. Brown has blended well with Kemba Walker at the point. In a 4-game week, Brown is a must start in all lineups.
Grizzlies SF Jae Crowder
3 and D player is filling out stat sheet for young Grizzlies team. 4-game this scoring period Crowder has value for DFS play and daily categories league players.
49ers QB Jimmy Garoppolo
The Seahawks allow opposing passers to throw for an average of 278.1 yards-per-game. Improved receiving corps and solid running game setting up play action makes Jimmy G worthy of being in lineups this week.
Chiefs RB Damien Williams
Titans can be beat by running backs out of the backfield. See my Austin Ekeler pick from Week 7. (7 catches 118 yards and a TD). Williams has taken back more of the workload from LeSean McCoy. With Mahomes returning I would anticipate the ball getting out of his hands quickly to avoid taken hits.
Cardinals WR Larry Fitzgerald
A combined 7 catches the last 3 weeks. Larry Legend is due for a market correction vs. the Bucs.
Vikings TE Irv Smith
6 targets in 2 of the last 3 games. With Thielen out, this move tight end may be more involved to create mismatches vs. the Cowboys.
Panthers K Joey Slye
I can see the Panthers moving the ball vs. the Packers, but stalling out drives.
Faces a Falcons offense that has allowed 60 QB hits. Saints have a complete defense and Falcons are a complete mess.
Chiefs DT Chris Jones
Titans have allowed a league most 38 sacks this season. Jones is an elite pocket pusher that should cause fits for the Titans.
Lakers C Dwight Howard
Has reinvented himself as a high energy defensive role player off the bench. Howard is averaging 6.8 PPG, 8.2 RPG, and 2.3 BPG in 21.3 MPG. Categories leagues may want to roll with Howard for his 3-game-slate a road game against the Bulls, then home matchups vs. the Heat and Raptors. 37.5 FT% doesn’t hurt owners as bad with limited minutes.
Raptors SF OG Anunoby
3-games home with the Kings then road games with the Pelicans, and Lakers. Anunoby is a 3 and D player that is shooting 46% from downtown along with 1.7 SPG and 1.5 BPG. FT percentage is atrocious at 33%.
Kings C Richaun Holmes
Averaging 13.0 PPG and 7.0 RPG during last 3 starts. Kings play 2 road games this week with the Raptors and Hawks however, Holmes should still have DFS value.
Raiders QB Derek Carr
Lions pass defense has allowed Kirk Cousins and Daniel Jones to each throw 4 TD in consecutive weeks. Carr has solid weapons at his arsenal to make him streamworthy.
Eagles RB Jordan Howard
Monsters of the Midway aren’t the same without Akiem Hicks clogging up the middle. I like Howard in a revenge game.
Lions WR Danny Amendola
19 targets combined the last 2 weeks. Lions can’t run the ball without Kerryon Johnson, so they’ve resorted to using Amendola in the short passing game to matriculate the ball.
Eagles TE Dallas Goedert
Scored a TD in consecutive weeks. Goedert has seen 4 or more targets the last 3 weeks.
Seahawks K Jason Myers
Bucs defense gives up an average of 30.3 points-per-game.
Should be able to force a few turnovers in Brandon Allen’s first NFL start.
Titans ILB Rashaan Evans
6 or more total tackles in 4 consecutive games. Evans will make acquaintances with Panthers skill position players.
Nets SF/PF Taurean Prince
Double digit scoring in all contests this season. Also 6 or more rebounds in each contest. Lack of depth in Nets frontcourt should keep Prince worthy of being in lineups. Fantasy owners looking for 3 point shooting from a PF may want to use Prince for his 3-game slate.
Magic PF/SF Jonathan Isaac
6 blocks in just 2 games to start the campaign. 4-games this scoring period. I believe Isaacs offensive game starts to matchup to his defensive game this season. Get on board before its too late.
Wizards PF/SF Rui Hachimura
Just 2 games this scoring period, but Rui is averaging 16.3 ppg and 7.7 rpg so far this season. Averaging 32.7 mpg for the rebuilding Wizards.
Titans QB Ryan Tannehill
Face a Bucs defense that gives up a worst 304 yards per game through the air. The Titans have more playmakers than what the numbers show.
Chiefs RB Lesean McCoy
Packers allow 4.9 YPC and McCoy has been the effective back in the Chiefs timeshare. McCoy finds the end zone for first time in 3 weeks.
Bills WR John Brown
50 or more receiving yards in each game this season. Michael Thomas is the only other WR to do so this season.
Broncos TE Noah Fant
Colts struggle to cover opposing tight ends and Fant should see more of a target share with Emmanuel Sanders traded.
Steelers K Chris Boswell
Dolphins give up points to everyone and the projected weather in Pittsburgh is mild.
Home matchup with the turnover prone Jameis Winston. 10 INT and 5 Fumbles so far this season.
Broncos ILB Todd Davis
7 or more total tackles in 4 consecutive games. Opportunities to make players should be there vs. the Colts.
Bills QB Josh Allen
Coming off a bye week for a home matchup with the Dolphins. Miami is holding opposing quarterbacks to a 131.0 Passer Rating.
Chargers RB Austin Ekeler
Titans give up almost 7 catches per game to opposing running backs. Ekeler still a decent play in PPR formats.
Cowboys WR Michael Gallup
Eagles have given up 7 pass plays of 40 plus yards this season and Gallup’s a deep threat.
Bills TE Dawson Knox
4 or more targets in 3 of 5 games this season. Knox is a matchup dart throw at a thin position.
Colts K Adam Vinatieri
Texans allow an average of 10 fantasy points to opposing kickers. Doesn’t hit 50 yarders anymore, but kicks indoors.
Bengals offensive line has given up 22 sacks already this season. Jaguars have 3 sacks in each of the last 2 games. Pressure can lead to turnovers.
Cardinals ILB Haason Reddick
Giants run a lot of short routes and having a running QB. Reddick will have opportunities to make plays.
Lions QB Matthew Stafford
11 TD and 1 INT in last 5 games vs. the Packers. Lions offense is letting Stafford take more shots this season.
Redskins RB Adrian Peterson
Negative game script shouldn’t come into play this week. The Dolphins give up 175.8 Yards per game on the ground. Worth a standard scoring flex play.
Dolphins WR Preston Williams
5 or more targets in each contest this season. Redskins defense is atrocious defending opposing receivers. Out of the bye week look for Williams to continue to be the bright spot on offense.
Rams TE Gerald Everett
Combined 12 catches for 180 yards and a TD in last 2 games.
Jaguars K Josh Lambo
Should be busy vs. the Saints at home.
After getting embarrassed by the Packers last week, I would expect the Cowboys to ground the Jets.
Browns WLB Mack Wilson
Christian Kirksey is out for the season and it’s Wilson’s job to lose. Seahawks run heavy offense should lead to tackle opportunities.
Cardinals QB Kyler Murray
Bengals have allowed a 116.0 Opponents passer rating. Bengals defense could be the slump buster to jump start Kliff Kingsbury’s offense.
Patriots RB Sony Michel
Redskins give up 147.5 yards per game on the ground. Michel has struggled without Fullback James Devlin. Get right game for Patriots rushing attack makes Michel worth using as a flex play.
Packers WR Marques Valdes Scantling
Adams status vs. the Cowboys is unknown as of this writing. MVS would be the featured receiver vs. the Cowboys if Adams is out or limited.
Bengals TE Tyler Eifert
Cardinals defense is awful vs. opposing Tight Ends. John Ross is also out for a month.
Panthers K Joey Slye
Hit 10-11 attempts this season including 4 from 50 plus yards
Home against the Luke Falk led Jets. Pinball points matchup.
IDP Patriots LB Kyle Van Noy
8 total tackles and 2 sacks last week. Redskins won’t push ball down the field creating tackle opportunities for Van Noy.
