So maybe you’re out of the playoffs in your season long leagues, but you still need to get that fantasy fix. It’s not like it’s addicting or anything…
But I digress. Keep on reading for surefire advice on how to defeat your enemies in DFS this weekend just like Kevin McCallister defeated Harry and Marv.
I really like Trevor Siemian this week against New England. Not only are there not a whole lot of great options at the position, but Siemian is cheap and has been playing well of late with multiple touchdowns and/or over 300 passing yards in each of his last 4 games.
Matt Ryan is kind of a no-brainer this weekend if you want to spend for the most expensive QB available. He leads a top-10 all time offense, and San Francisco cannot stop anyone.
The Tennessee Titans won last week even though Mariota only threw for 88 yards. The recipe was run, run, run, and this week they face a Kansas City defense that is stout against the pass, but pretty weak against the run. Expect a healthy dose of DeMarco Murray, and if you want a value option, Derrick Henry will probably get 10-15 touches as well.
Adrian Peterson is back! Of course we’re not sure what (or how much) to expect, but he is facing a porous Colts defense, and he’s dirt cheap considering the pedigree.
Like Matt Ryan, David Johnson, is the most expensive option at running back, but he arguably has the best matchup this week as well against New Orleans.
No Julio Jones means that Taylor Gabriel is the #1 in Atlanta. Play with confidence.
Tyreek Hill is one of the best multi-purpose players in the league. His combination of receiving, rushing, and returning makes him useful no matter the game flow. Granted, Tennessee is one of the better defensive teams in the league, but Hill can do a lot to break down a defense.
Jordy Nelson keeps catching touchdown passes, and even caught two TDs against Seattle’s secondary. This week he gets Chicago, and Green Bay needs to keep winning to make the playoffs, so have fun!
Keep playing Zach Ertz. As mentioned before, he’s literally the only player in Philadelphia that can catch a ball, so even though he’s playing against the best defense in the league he’s still going to be peppered with targets.
Tyler Eifert is the main man in Cincinnati since AJ Green went down with injury. The Steelers have a soft defense, so play the 26 year old with confidence.
Both Buffalo and Houston are playing bottom feeder offenses, so enjoy the picks and sacks.
