We’re getting into the final stretch of the NFL season, and weather can be a big factor in certain parts of the country (anyone watch that Thursday night game this week?). If you want to win some money to buy all of the cool stuff for your bros, you need to be smart and hit those picks.
The Carolina Defense has been absolutely shredded over the past few weeks, and Phillip Rivers gets the pleasure of facing them this week. He’s also one of the cheaper options at QB this weekend, so you can feel free rolling with him this weekend.
Kirk Cousins is still surprisingly cheap, despite having quite the run over the past several weeks. Granted, he’s playing the Philadelphia defense, at Philadelphia, which isn’t the best option. However, Washington can move the ball with the best of them, and Cousins has arguably the best stable of receiving options in the NFL.
Ezekial Elliot faces divisional foes in New York. With iffy weather, look for Dallas to run the ball A LOT. A lot more than they usually do. Also, JPP, is extremely important to the Giant’s run defense, and he’s out.
Cleveland doesn’t rock, and Jeremy Hill faces them this weekend as Cincinnati’s main back since Gio Bernard tore his ACL. Hill has had a less than stellar year, but he is the main running option against the worst team in the NFL this weekend.
Mike Evans. Mike Evans. Mike Evans. One of the best receivers is facing one of the worst secondaries. Have fun.
Tyrell Williams gets to face the the Carolina defense (see above Rivers, Phillip). If you want to go even cheaper grab Dontrelle Inman for a great value pick.
As a Cowboys fan, it’s hard for me to recommend Odell Beckham Jr. against my Boys this Sunday night, but he gets the benefit of facing a banged up Dallas secondary, and the Giants will have to air it out against Dallas in order to keep the game competitive.
Ladarius Green has always been physical specimen, and he now gets to show it off as the #1 tight end in the high powered Pittsburgh offense. And because he only recently grabbed the starting spot, he’s relatively inexpensive for the production. Have fun!
Nobody in Philly seems to be able to catch a ball, except for Zach Ertz. He is clearly the only reliable target and as such gets a boatload of targets.
Blake Bortles is bad. Minnesota has a good defense.
