Here are some of my core players for week 7 NFL DFS.
K. Cousins – $5,900
Has everything you want for a QB – Cheap price, 32 OPRK, high total of 49, no running back, and a game that should be a shootout. May be a somewhat popular play but he will be one of my stacks without a doubt.
B. Bortles – $6,200
Home vs the Raiders I like Bortles to put up big numbers and finally re invigorate his two big name receivers.
P. Rivers – $6,500
At the Falcons, this game should be high scoring and Rivers will have to do like he usually does and throw 40 passes to try and keep up, and likely succeed.
M. Stafford – $6,400
Just can’t go wrong with him right now, as he’s throwing 3-4 TDs a game and has another shoot-out type matchup. It helps that his defense is so bad that it usually forces him to stay aggressive all the way to the end of the game.
J. Ajayi – $4,500
Will he have a game like last week where he amassed 200 yards and 2 TD’s? No. However he’s a great gamble at this price to get half that or more, as Miami will look to stick with what finally worked, and that’s establish the run and give Ajayi the load.
D. Murray – $7,200
His price dropped to $500 less than last week after his first game with under 20 points all season. Murray has had a stellar season and the Titans will continue to ride him. Grade A matchup home vs the Colts who are a very poor run defense.
M. Forte – $5,000
He’s been forgotten about in DFS, and I want to buy him low and while he’s being faded. Home vs the Ravens and the Vegas line points to a Jets victory, and they certainly can’t seem to do it through Fitzpatrick’s arm or maybe worse, Geno’s.
T. Riddick – $5,200
Back from injury and averaging 6.5 receptions a game on top of 10 rushing attempts, Riddick is a big-time playmaker. This game is a high total and riddick is the type of player who usually pays for himself and has pretty big upside.
D. Jackson – $5,700
I love Jackson to make a big return this week with his great matchup vs Detroit.
A. Robinson – $7,300
Has been quiet for a while but should finally have a 20 pt + game this week vs the poor pass defense of Oakland.
M. Jones – $7,000
Did I mention I like the Detroit – Redskins game? I like all of their WR’s but I’m going to buy Jones while people are down on him.
J. Maclin – $6,700
Has certainly been a bust so far but has the matchup of the year this week home vs the Saints.
K. Wright – $3,700
There are a few cheap WR’s that have good value right now in the league, but this week I like Kendall Wright the most as he’s coming off of a huge 30 point fantasy game and home vs the Colts.
J. Reed – $6,000
If he goes, he’ll be the best TE this week.
J. Thomas – $3,900
Somewhat of a sneak play, as he hasn’t done much so far this season. He does get about 5-6 targets a game and has a great matchup vs Oakland though who has been one of the worst defenses vs the tight end the last 2 years.
T. Kelce – $5,300
Home vs the Saints so I love KC players. Especially Kelce who although is pretty consistent did have his worst game last week. Hopefully that will make the public shy away from him in a spot where they should be buying.
H. Henry – $3,600
Four quality fantasy games in a row and he’s still at $3,600? With his price, production, and matchup vs the Falcons I will be playing him.
Eagles – $3,100
Defense and special teams has playmakers who score TD’s, and they held Pitt to 3 points in Phili just a couple weeks ago.
49ers – $2,500
Home vs Bucs who have potential to lay an egg and make critical errors. I like the 49ers to win the game with a dlis defensive effort, even with TB off of a bye.
