Friday 21st Jul 2017

Week 8 features our first week with six teams on byes (Dolphins, Rams, Steelers, 49ers, Ravens, Giants) and a London game. That narrows the regular Sunday DraftKings contests to just ten NFL games. If you are playing GPPs, it might take a little more of an outside-the-box lineup to differentiate your team from others. My partner in fantasy contests is pushing a Rodgers-Cobb-Adams-Nelson stack. Now that would be different.

There are some nice quarterback options at the upper end as well as the lower end. Bucs-Raiders figures to be a shootout that can generate some high-scoring QBs.

QB Tom Brady NE 7600 Should we be surprised with how well he has played?
QB Aaron Rodgers GB 7500 Lukewarm seletion in highest Vegas total on the board
QB Russell Wilson Sea 7200 The Saints give up points to everyone
QB Matt Ryan Atl 7000 Tough to envision a low-scoring game here
QB Drew Brees NO 6900 Brees at home - no matter the opponent
QB Derek Carr Oak 5900 Bucs secondary getting better, but not there yet
QB Jameis Winston TB 5700 Bucs are not bad on offense with Evans catching passes

Like quarterback, the running back position offers several high-price options and a few strong cheap options. The injuries to LeSean McCoy and C.J. Anderson figure to open up usage for Mike Gillislee and Devontae Booker. And we have all seen what marginal running backs can do with usage (see Jacquizz Rodgers).

RB David Johnson Ari 7700 Proved to be matchup proof even in 6-6 tie
RB Ezekiel Elliott Dal 7200 Has been a beast so far
RB Spencer Ware KC 6800 Seeing majority of the work and getting the job done
RB Matt Forte NYJ 6400 GPP only - scores well if Jets play from ahead
RB Jacquizz Rodgers TB 5800 Has been the "out of nowhere superstar" the past couple of weeks
RB Mike Gillislee Buf 3800 If McCoy is out - just like last week
RB Devontae Booker Den 3700 A late addition to the list with Anderson doubtful

Tough to bypass the lower-priced receivers this week. Several are in ideal high-scoring matchups. You can easily structure a roster paying up at QB, RB, and TE with money saved at WR.

 

WR Julio Jones Atl 9600 Game should be up and down with Falcons short at RB
WR Mike Evans TB 8100 Turning into a beast
WR Brandin Cooks NO 7300 Instant offense at home
WR Emmanuel Sanders Den 6500 Broncos do not have a third receiver to steal targets
WR Randall Cobb GB 6400 Coming to life in past two
WR Demaryius Thomas Den 6200 See Sanders above
WR Ty Montgomery GB 5300 Is he still going to see touches in the backfield?
WR Golden Tate Det 5100 Matching expectations the past two weeks - underpriced
WR Michael Thomas NO 5000 Might be best receiver on the Saints
WR Davante Adams GB 4900 Tough to trust but getting the job done
WR Cole Beasley Dal 4800 Solid cash game possession receiver
WR Russell Shepard TB 3300 Longshot cheap option as Bucs search for second wideout

Three weeks in a row I have been burned trying to save money at tight end. Not this week. Gronk or Olsen will be in my cash game lineup.

 

TE Rob Gronkowski NE 7000 I am looking to pay up at TE this week
TE Greg Olsen Car 6500 And it is Olsen or Gronk by far
TE Jason Witten Dal 3600 Should lose some looks with Dez back
TE Jack Doyle Ind 3500 Nice play if Allen is out again
TE Coby Fleener NO 3400 GPP play for Saints at home
TE Antonio Gates SD 2700 If Henry is out

I haven't had much luck getting production from my defense. I was nowhere near the Eagles last week. The Jets-Browns game looks like a turnover-fest waiting to happen.

 

DST Jets NYJ 3400 Anyone against Cleveland has to be in play
DST Patriots NE 3300 Pats getting ahead, forcing opponents to throw into mistakes
DST Chiefs KC 2800 Colts can score, but are sack-prone
DST Cardinals Ari 2700 Cardinals defense playing very well
DST Browns Cle 2500 At home against a Jets team that turns the ball over

Here is my DraftKings cash game lineup as of today:

QB Matt Ryan Atl 7000
RB Spencer Ware KC 6800
RB Devontae Booker Den 3700
WR Golden Tate Det 5100
WR Michael Thomas NO 5000
WR Davante Adams GB 4900
TE Rob Gronkowski NE 7000
RB David Johnson Ari 7700
DST Chiefs KC 2800
      50000

And here is my DraftKings GPP game lineup as of today:

QB Aaron Rodgers GB 7500
RB David Johnson Ari 7700
RB Devonta Freeman Atl 6500
WR Randall Cobb GB 6400
WR Davante Adams GB 4900
WR Jordy Nelson GB 7200
TE Jack Doyle Ind 3500
WR Michael Floyd Ari 4100
DST Colts IND 2200
      50000
