Bottom of the Barrel WK7 (NFL DFS)

Bottom of the Barrel WK7

Our words are powerful. Our words have meaning. They can hurt others. They can help others. Are you part of the problem? Or are you part of the solution?

I’ve never had a problem editing an article or admitting when I was wrong. What does one have to do with the other? In all my years I’ve never edited B&B. I’ve never gone back in after it was published to add players. I’ve never gone back in to delete my words either. Once it’s published it’s history. It’s set in stone right? For the first time ever I’ve decided to make an edit to Bottom of the Barrel. Not subtract but to add! With all the injury news today I felt compelled to do so!

Being and honest and transparent are two ideals we need as human beings. Being open and honest as a fantasy sports writer is imperative.

With week 7 of the NFL season upon us a few things are becoming clear. Waiver wire adds, DFS and writing are becoming mundane and exhausting. We’ve officially entered into the quitting portion of fantasy football.

Fantasy football teams are being abandoned, fantasy football writers/podcasters are taking steps back and the grind of the constant work is draining us all. What we’re doing here is clearly a marathon and in no way a sprint. It’s a year round type commitment.

Let me rewind back all the way to March when I become fully entrenched on Twitter. Large groups of people were constantly writing, ranking and broadcasting. It was the off season, there were no deadlines to hit and content didn’t have a expiration date.

Now, lets fast forward to the present time where our content is only relevant for a few days or a week tops. You either get into a strict schedule or you’re lost, passed by. It’s heartbreaking. I truly want us all to succeed. We can all make it. Unfortunately that’s not the case. People are giving up before the miracle happens.

I’ve long said the best way to get along with our writing and broadcasting is to help others. Reach out and share as much content as you can. We all deserve a millions views. A million downloads and a million comments. That’s not realistic and most times it doesn’t go our way.

Shout out to everyone who writes and broadcasts on a daily basis. Shout out to those of you have stepped back. We all have our reasons right? Shout out to anybody who has made a healthy decision here. I love you. I got you!

QUARTERBACK

Not new anymore but here’s the most expensive player at QB in week 7. Should help put B&B prices into perspective!

Patrick Mahomes KC @ DEN (24th)(FD-$9,000)(DK-$7,400)

Kansas City Chiefs QB Patrick Mahomes

Here are some cheaper options I’m considering at QB!

Ben Roethlisberger PIT @ TEN (27th)(FD-$7,400)(DK-$6,600)

Pittsburgh Steelers QB Ben Roethlisberger

Big Ben didn’t have to do much vs. the Browns last week. However, he continued to strengthen his bond with Claypool and James Washington! I’m fully expecting Ben to crank up the volume on Sunday. With volume comes points!

Ryan Tannehill TEN vs. PIT (5th)(FD-$7,300)(DK-$6,200)

Tennessee Titan QB Ryan Tannehill

See what happens when Fanduel doesn’t catch up? What the hell are they doing? Tanny is completely 100% a must start week-to-week now right? You bet your ass he is!

Matthew Stafford DET @ ATL (32nd)(FD-$7,300)(DK-$6,500)

Detroit Lions QB Matthew Stafford

Can the Lions get a three game winning streak going? You bet your ass they can! Careful how many times you bet you ass here. Stafford didn’t do much Sunday vs. the JAX and rightfully so seeing how their ground game was lights out. I’m fully expecting an entire air show in ATL Sunday!

Teddy Bridgewater CAR @ NO (29th)(FD-$6,800)(DK-$5,800)

Carolina Panthers QB Teddy Bridgewater

Ah Teddy is back with us here at B&B! Teddy has played well in spots this season. That’s what we’re looking to find here at B&B. He’s been very efficient with his passes although the points haven’t added up as much as we’d like. How many of you buy into revenge games? I wouldn’t say this one qualifies seeing how New Orleans took a chance on him and treated him well. Regardless, Teddy B will want to show them what they’re missing!

Kyle Allen WSH vs. DAL (22nd)(FD-$6,700)(DK-$5,200)

Washington QB Kyle Allen

This is a classic of match-up over the actual player. Forget that you’re spending fictitious money on Kyle Allen and just skip ahead to the mouth watering match-up. The Cowboys are in trouble here. Arizona made them look inept and silly. Here’s hoping we can capture some of that magic with Kyle Allen. Can’t believe I just typed that…

RUNNING BACK

Not new anymore but here’s the most expensive player at RB in week 7. Should help put B&B prices into perspective!

Christian McCaffrey CAR v NO (15th)(FD-$10,000)(DK-$8,300)

Carolina Panthers RB Christian McCaffery

Here are some cheaper options I’m considering at RB!

D’Andre Swift DET @ ATL (18th)(FD-$6,100)(DK-$5,400)

Detroit Lions rookie RB D’Andre Swift

It was a real joy to watch the Lions play well and watch Swift show out! After a performance like that it leaves us all asking for an encore! D’Andre should very much give us one Sunday in Atlanta!

Justin Jackson LAC vs. JAX (28th)(FD-$6,100)(DK-$4,900)

LA Chargers RB Justin Jackson

Mr. Jackson had 20 total touches Sunday vs. the Saints. He also out-touched Joshua Kelley 20-12 and out-produced him yardage wise. If you look at the slate Kelley is a touch more expensive than Justin. It’s a no brainer for me here in week 7.

Giovani Bernard CIN v CLE (14th)(FD-$4,800)(DK-$4,500)

Cincinnati Bengals RB Giovani Bernard

Joe Mixon has already been declared out. So in turn that pushes Gio up to their RB1. If you remember correctly Gio was the starting RB in Cincinnati for I believe three maybe four seasons. In 2013 Gio rushed 170 times for 695 yards scoring 5 times. He also caught the ball 56 times for 514 yards and 3 touchdowns. Look I’m not going go through his entire career just letting you know Gio is very capable of playing RB in the NFL.

Samaje Perine CIN v CLE (14th)(FD-$4,500)(DK-$4,000)

Cincinnati Bengal RB Samaje Perine

Maybe this one is little wild. Maybe I’m just excited that some value has been made available. He’s merely a special teams player at this point but we have no clue how the targets and touches will shake out. 6 or 7 carries and a reception or two is what I think he gets Sunday. This is what B&B is all about! Do you have the guts?

A.J. Dillion GB @ HOU (31st)(FD-$4,500)(DK-$4,000)

Green Bay Packers rookie RB AJ Dillon

Word broke this afternoon that Aaron Jones suffered a minor calf injury sometime in the past few days. This is purely speculative seeing how he’s the third string back in GB. It’s actually quite simple, if Jones plays there is no room for AJ. Pay close attention this over the weekend!

Antonio Gibson WSH vs. DAL (24th)(FD-$5,700)(DK-$5,000)

Washington rookie RB Antonio Gibson

JD McKisson (FD-$5,200)(DK-$4,600)

Something something Dallas’ defense is awful. Something something Gibson/McKissic are splitting touches. Nothing more then a plug and play here!

Zach Moss BUF @ NYJ (26th)(FD-$5,400)(DK-$4,200)

Buffalo Bills RB Zach Moss

Was tough sledding for Devin and Moss Sunday. Obviously the Kansas City Chiefs are at the top of the NFL food chain so I wouldn’t think too much into it. Looking ahead the Bills travel to the Jets and oh boy is it going to be bad news for them and Adam Gase. Who here thinks the Bills get up big, like 21+ points, on Sunday and we see a steady dose of Moss in the second half? Exactly! That’s what I thought!

Jamaal Williams GB @ HOU (31st)(FD-$5,000)(DK-$4,000)

Green Bay Packers RB Jamal Williams

Did you see what Derrick Henry did to the Texans on Sunday? 200+ rushing yards and 2 TD’s. Once of which that ended the game. Henry single handedly took the Texans soul with him after this one. Aaron Jones is the RB1 here in this one but lets get wild and roster J-Will! Lot’s of room to run on a soul-less defense.

La’Mical Perine NYJ vs. BUF (19th)(FD-$4,800)(DK-$4,200)

New York Jets rookie RB La’Mical Perine

I respect Frank Gore very much but the Jets would be wise to get the rookie involved. Adam Gase is so bad, “how bad is he Chris?”, he’s starting to effect our DFS decisions now too. Absolutely awful!

Jeremy McNicols TEN vs. PIT (3rd)(FD-$4,500)(DK-$4,000)

Tennessee Titans RB Jeremy McNicols

Not an ideal match-up for the kid. Henry is no doubt the unquestioned RB1 in Tennessee but in today’s day and age can he realistically carry the ball 30 times?

WIDE RECEIVER

DeAndre Hopkins ARZ vs. SEA (32nd)(FD-$9,000)(DK-$8,200)

Arizona Cardinals WR DeAndre Hopkins

Here are some cheaper options I’m considering at WR!

Mike Williams LAC vs. JAX (18th)(FD-$5,900)(DK-$4,7000)

LA Chargers WR Mike Williams

That-a-boy Mike! He’s finally come alive. Albeit after Keenan Allen left with injury. Regardless the Chargers are fresh as a daisy coming off their bye week and with studly rookie QB Justin Herbert playing this well, plenty of targets and touches to go around!

Marvin Jones DET @ ATL (28th)(FD-$5,700)(DK-$4,400)

Detroit Lions WR Marvin Jones Jr.

The volume may be lower now that Kenny G is fully healthy, Swift is getting his and Stafford is looking TJ Hock’s way 4-5 times a game but Marvin is Marvin! He’s always been super efficient with his targets. At a sub-6k price tag and this match-up I’m jumping all over it!

Tee Higgins CIN vs. CLE (29th)(FD-$5,700)(DK-$5,300)

Cincinnati Bengals rookie WR Tee Higgins

Life comes at you fast folks! I full expect Tee to be the next graduate here at the B&B DFS academy. The chemistry that’s developing here between Burrow and Higgins in undeniable! Tee continues to see targets. Continues to put up fantastic numbers. Tee and Burrow are on the fast track to super-stardom. Will it translate into real life wins? Not my area of expertise. Long as the fantasy points are accumulating and the money is flowing who has time to worry about real life wins/loses?

Keelan Cole JAX @ LAC (15th)(FD-$5,500)(DK-$4,700)

Jacksonville Jags WR Keelan Cole

Cole has been a pleasant surprise for us DFS players. He continues to rack up receptions, yardage and even touchdowns yet his price remains low. He’s put up 100+ yards or scored in four of his last six games. It’s such a nice floor for the price that you’d be a fool not to roster him!

Tim Patrick DEN vs. KC (5th)(FD-$5,500)(DK-$4,600)

Denver Broncos WR Time Patrick

Remember when I said life comes at you fast like two minutes ago? What about how shocking and totally unpredictable fantasy football is? If I told six months ago that Tim Patrick was going to be the Broncos WR1 heading into week 7? I would’ve been laughed out of the business. Tim has had back-to-back 100yd receiving games and is absolutely a threat to take it home on any given play. Very tough task ahead vs. KC but his volume alone makes him a play!

Christian Kirk ARZ vs. SEA (32nd)(FD-$5,400)(DK-$4,900)

Arizona Cardinals WR Christian Kirk

Have the Cardinals finally put it together? Are they clicking? Hitting on all cylinders? Kirk was a popular sleeper add in our seasonal formats so naturally we assumed he’d be a great DFS play week after week! You know what they say when we assume? Makes an ass of u and me. Get it? Kirk has come alive the last few weeks and Seattle comes to town giving up a ton of points to opposing WR’s. Boom or bust? I’d bet BOOM yet again on Sunday!

Corey Davis TEN vs. PIT (25th)(FD-$5,200)(DK-$4,800)

Tennessee Titans WR Corey Davis

Corey was finally playing well! He was helping us and we liked it! Then he was added to the COVID-IR. Corey is back now for a match-up that isn’t that scary when you look into it! Will he get enough volume? Or enough targets to make him a viable option this week? I’m guessing 5-6 targets and 3-4 receptions. Fortune favors the bold!

Tre’Quan Smith NO vs. CAR (4th)(FD-$5,300)(DK-$4,000)

New Orleans Saints WR Tre’Quan Smith

Tre’Quan is no stranger to B&B! Michael Thomas has been ruled out and so has Emmanuel Sanders. Mr. Smith has now been thrust into a predominate role Sunday in New Orleans!

Gabriel Davis BUF @ NYJ (13th)(FD-$4,800)(DK-$3,600)

Buffalo Bills rookie WR Gabriel Davis

Gabe is no stranger to us here at B&B and given the match-up along with his price, undeniable to me! Roster the kid! 75yds and TD in week 7?

TIGHT END

Travis Kelce KC @ DEN (13th)(FD-$7,900)(DK-$6,300)

Kansas City Chiefs TE Travis Kelce

Here are some cheaper options I’m considering at TE!

Logan Thomas WSH vs. DAL (26th)(FD-$5,000)(DK-$3,500)

Washington Football Team TE Logan Thomas

Have you heard how awful the Cowboys defense is yet?

Anthony Firkser TEN vs. PIT (9th)(FD-$5,000)(DK-$3,000)

Tennessee Titans TE Anthony Firkser

Keep an eye on Jonnu Smith and his injury designation. He went down Sunday and didn’t return. Tony went wild in his absence! 8 receptions 113 yards and a TD! If Jonnu is out I’m telling you now this is a slam dunk play. Probably my favorite play to be honest!

Drew Sample CIN vs. CLE (22nd)(FD-$4,700)(DK-$3,200)

Cincinnati Bengal TE Drew Sample

Look, if you’re reading this then you know what’s going on day to day in the fantasy community I’d assume. Drew hasn’t done a thing for quite some time. He put up zeros in all statistical categories Sunday week 6. That’s both good and bad. Are you a glass half full kind of person? Or a glass half empty kind of person? He had 0.0 Sunday, so there’s no where to go but up right?

Dawson Knox BUF @ NYJ (20th)(FD-$4,500)(DK-$3,300)

Buffalo Bills TE Dawson Knox

I like to pick on bad teams. it’s the not so very secret to my DFS success. Knox has the Q tag currently but keep in mind as you’re building lines for week 7!

Harrison Bryant CLE @ CIN (14th)(FD-$4,500)(DK-$4,000)

Cleveland Browns rookie TE Harrison Bryant

Not to be rude to Harrison but this is just the process of elimination. Starting TE Austin Hooper came down with appendicitis. David Njouk is just there so that leaves the rookie looking at an expanded role! If you’re like me, punting TE, this selection is looking better and better by the hour!

I’ve always enjoyed reading waiver wire articles with a “graduated” portion of the article but that’s not my style. I do want to mention Justin Jefferson, CeeDee Lamb and Chase Claypool. Hope to see them playing for a long time!

Here are two of my sample lines I’m going to use for week 7! Keep in mind these lines are for entertainment purposes! Please play responsible!

Also look for updated lines closer to lock on Sunday morning 10/25!

Bottom of the Barrel WK6 (NFL DFS)

Bottom of the Barrel WK6
10/13/20
Chris Robin https://twitter.com/DetroitBeastie

This is downright strange. Or is it absolutely awful? As I type this I’m still thinking about Tuesday night professional football. Come to find out that’s never happened in the history of the NFL? Or has it? Oh 2020 how we loathe thee. Or do we love this idea?

That’s the thing! No one can decide! No one can agree! We’re stuck in this early week purgatory waiting for football but also wanting to look ahead to our week 6 waivers and our week 6 DFS slates!

Look, I’m not complaining at all. That’s not my style. I’m also not blaming the DFS sites. I’m too easy going for that. We are allowed to be a little irritated and frustrated. When you turn everything over to computers and algorithms this is bound to happen. My trusted ole pen and paper has never blacked out or delayed me!

DFS has become a juggernaut. It’s given birth to thousands of websites and podcasts. Lets be honest, its changed the way we all play fantasy sports. Personally, I love it. That’s where this whole article and most of my content has come from.

As human beings we’re good and adapting and overcoming. Case and point; 2020. We are in the home stretch now friends. Little over two months left in the year. Lets be mindful of each other and treat everybody with respect. Kill em’ with kindness as my late father used to say!

What you find horrid and nasty I find exciting and opportunity! Week 6 here we come!

QUARTERBACK

I have a new idea! A new feature if you will. Give out the most expensive player at each position as we get to it. Putting into perspective the B&B prices!

Lamar Jackson BAL @ PHI (14th)(FD-$9,000)(DK-$7,600)

Baltimore Ravens QB Lamar Jackson

Here are some cheaper options I’m considering at QB!

Ryan Tannehill TEN v HOU (8th)(FD-$7,300)(DK-$5,900)

Tennessee Titans QB Ryan Tannehill

Quick turn-a-round for the Titans this week. With a monster RB like Henry I don’t think it matters much. Tanny has posted 13 multi-TD games in his last 14 games. Good bet he does it again Sunday at home vs. Houston’s 21st overall ranked defense.

Matthew Stafford DET @ JAX (27th)(FD-$7,300)(DK-$6,200)

Detroit Lions QB Matthew Stafford

Fresh off the bye week the Lions travel to Jacksonville in what should be a winnable plus match-up. As a Detroit Lions fan that means squat. Stafford is averaging 250+ passing yards a game along with 2 TD’s per contest. He’s a safe bet to hit those numbers Sunday.

Kirk Cousins MIN v ATL (32nd)(FD-$7,100)(DK-$6,100)

Minnesota Vikings QB Kirk Cousins

Minnesota has shown some life their last few games. Looking ahead to Sunday it doesn’t get any sweeter then the Atlanta Falcons. As you read on you’ll notice a Viking type theme going on! Roster Kirk in week 6! As Bob Barker would say, “the price is right!”

Daniel Jones NYG v WSH (28th)(FD-$6,700)(DK-$5,400)

New York Giants QB Daniel Jones

5 interceptions, 16 sacks and a fumble in each of the last 4 games. I do this to myself quite often when putting this article together. So why would we use Danny Jones in week 6? He has to break out of this funk sooner or later right? You’d think so right? To be honest the Washington DST is the play in this one.

Alex Smith WSH @ NYG (5th)(FD-$6,500)(DK-$5,000)

Comeback Player of the Year Alex Smith?

I’m sure we can all agree seeing Alex on the field in week 5 was spectacular. Ron Rivera did say if Kyle Allen is healthy enough he’s the starting QB. Regardless, I’m happy he’s healthy and proud to mention him in B&B! Shout out to Mike F @DaddysHomeFF!

RUNNING BACK

Christian McCaffrey CAR v CHI (13th)(FD-$10,000)(DK-$8,500)

Carolina Panther RB Christian McCaffrery

Here are some cheaper options I’m considering at RB!

David Montgomery CHI @ CAR (32nd)(FD-$5,900)(DK-$5,800)

Chicago Bears RB David Montgomery

Correct me if I’m wrong but I believe D-Mont is arguably the best RB play of week 6. I was shocked to see him under 6k. Very excited and happy but surprised! Without Cohen David is seeing all the backfield touches. Goal-line work included! The volume he will see in week 6 alone makes him a slam-dunk play!

Antonio Gibson WSH @ NYG (20th)(FD-$5,800)(DK-$5,500)

Washington rookie RB Antonio Gibson

Gibby has seen back-to-back 5 target weeks and is fully entranced as WSH lead back. On Sunday they travel to the NYG for a very positive match-up! Look for Antonio to do it all for our DFS teams this Sunday!

Myles Gaskin MIA v NYJ (28th)(FD-$5,700)(DK-$5,400)

Miami Dolphins RB Myles Gaskin

Gaskin is putting together some nice weekly averages. Looking ahead to week 6 MIA finds themselves in a sweet spot. I fully expect Myles to see 15-16 touches and around 80 total scrimmage yards. In addition to price point I love the play.

Damien Harris NE v DEN (1st)(FD-$5,600)(DK-$5,000)

New England Patriots RB Damien Harris

This game was originally suppose to be played last week. Instead both teams got bye weeks and will try again this Sunday. Harris was all the buzz last time out after getting 17 carries and accumulating 100 yards. With an extra week to prepare I’m counting on Harris to see a ton of touches in unison with James White.

D’Andre Swift DET @ JAX (24th)(FD-$5,400)(DK-$4,500)

Detroit Lions rookie RB D’Andre Swift

Swift is no doubt the best pass catching back on this Lions team. When will the Lions let him loose and give him a full work load? For his price on both sites this week I’m willing to take that bet! #FreeSwift

Mike Boone MIN v ATL (23rd)(FD-$5,100)(DK-$4,000)

Minnesota Vikings RB Mike Boone

Dalvin Cook has already been ruled out for week 6. Enter Alexander Mattison! I say in walks Boone and matches Alex’s touches! The classic case of zigging when others zag! Boone has always been very productive when he sees the field. That’s the issue! With a healthy Cook it leaves Mike the odd man out. Week 6 is your DFS window for Boone!

Ke’Shawn Vaughn TB v GB (31st)(FD-$4,900)(DK-$4,000)

Let’s be honest, a large portion of us want Vaughn to be a thing. Well I do at least. Let me also say that if Leo Fournette is active Ke’Shawn is a non-factor.

Gus Edwards BAL @ PHI (12th)(FD-$4,600)(DK-$4,000)

Baltimore Ravens RB Gus Edwards

The Ravens back-field has been a mystery so far this season. Fantasy players are currently dropping Mark Ingram. That’s how crazy this 2020 season has been so far. Gus is averaging 6.8 carries a game. Through the first few games Edwards has a 6.2 YPC. I like his odds this week in Philly.

WIDE RECEIVER

Davante Adams GB @ TB (10th)(FD-$9,000)(DK-8,000)

Green Bay Packers WR Davante Adams

Here are some cheaper options I’m considering at WR!

Justin Jefferson MIN v ATL (25th)(FD-$5,900)(DK-$6,000)

Minnesota Vikings rookie WR Justin Jefferson

Admittedly JJ’s price is towing the line for B&B but he’s under 6k at home against an awful Falcons team. He’s averaging 74.2 receiving a yards a game to go with 3.8 receptions a contest. Don’t think twice about it! ROSTER JJ in week 6!

Chase Claypool PIT v CLE (30th)(FD-$5,500)(DK-$5,200)

Pittsburgh Steelers rookie WR Chase Claypool

What a coming out party for the kid in week 5! There’s nothing I can say you don’t already know. Give the rookie a shot in week 6 while his price is still manageable.

N’Keal Harry NE v DEN (27th)(FD-$5,400)(DK-$4,500)

New England Patriots WR N’Keal Harry

I try and stay away from players who’s value is tied to another. Meaning, long as Cam Newton is the starting QB for the Pats I like Harry as a DFS play. Keep an eye on Cam the next few days. Nothing official yet either way.

Darnell Mooney CHI @ CAR (6th)(FD-$5,000)(DK-$3,000)

Chicago Bears Darnell Mooney

Did you know Mooney has been targeted 5 fives times in two of their last three games? He’s also played the 2nd most snaps of all the Chicago WR’s. Foles threw some awful passes last time out but with another week of practice under their belt here’s hoping for some chemistry!

Danny Amendola DET @ JAX (19th)(FD-$4,900)(DK-$4,100)

Detroit Lions WR Danny Amendola

Danny will never put up WR1 numbers each week for your DFS team. He will however produce a safe floor at a low price enabling you to roster one, may two WR1’s! It’s strategic move this week!

Darrius Shepherd GB @ TB (10th)(FD-$4,500)(DK-$3,000)

Green Bay Packers WR Darrius Shepherd

The Packers stud WR1, Adams, has practiced in full all week. Green Bay rarely gets into 3+ WR sets during the game. I still find some sort of value for Darrius here in week 6. He’s literally the cheapest you can get at WR.

TIGHT END

Mark Andrews BAL @ PHI (29th)(FD-$7,600)(DK-$6,500)

Baltimore Ravens TE Mark Andrews

Here are some cheaper options I’m considering at TE!

Tight end is a wasteland for cheaper options this week. So tread lightly!

Trey Burton IND v CIN (19th)(FD-$4,700)(DK-$3,100)

Indianapolis Colts TE Trey Burton

Here’s a guy that’s always bugged the heck out of me. All the potential in the world but just can’t put it together. Always on and off the IR and injury reports. I know he can only do so much. Phil Rivers seemingly looks his way when he’s on the field. Whatever that’s worth.

Tyler Eifert JAX v DET (6th)(FD-$4,500)(DK-$3,400)

Jacksonville Jaguars TE Tyler Eifert

Eifert didn’t practice Wednesday due to a neck stinger but reports out of Jacksonville are saying they aren’t worried about his status Sunday v the Lions. I have this odd feeling Tyler scores a few times Sunday. I don’t know! I can’t shake it!

Richard Rodgers PHI v BAL (17th)(FD-$4,400)(DK-$2,500)

Philadelphia Eagles TE Richard Rodgers

I honestly have no idea what the heck is going on in Philly. Goedert is still not playing. Zach Ertz looks slow and washed. Something something Alshon Jeffery and DeSean Jackson. All in all it’s quite awful.

Irv Smith Jr. MIN v ATL (32nd)(FD-$4,300)(DK-$2,500)

Minnesota Vikings TE Irv Smith Jr.

If the Irv Jr. breakout game doesn’t happen this week friends it’s not happening at all.

Nick Boyle BAL @ PHI (29th)(FD-$4,100)(DK-$2,500)

Baltimore Ravens TE Nick Boyle

Boyle played 62 offensive snaps in week 5! His largest total of the season. We’ve seen Lamar feed Mark Andrews several times this season. Who’s to say PHI doesn’t take away Mark leaving Boyle open a time or two?

Here are two of my sample lines I’m going to use for week 6! Keep in mind these lines are for entertainment purposes! Please play responsible!

Bottom Of the Barrel WK5

Chris Robin https://twitter.com/DetroitBeastie

What a Sunday! What a weekend! What a week for Bottom of the Barrel!

It’s week 5 now and week 4 is behind us! We have to move fast in this fantasy football world! Only way to survive is planning ahead!

QUARTERBACK

I have a new idea! A new feature if you will. Give out the most expensive player at each position as we get to it. Putting into perspective the B&B prices!

Patrick Mahomes KC v LV (9th)(FD-$9,000)(DK-$7,700)

Kansas City Chiefs QB Patrick Mahomes

Here are some cheaper options I’m considering at QB!

Joe Burrow CIN @ BAL (22nd)(FD-$7,300)(DK-$6,000)

Cincinnati Bengals QB Joe Burrow

Joe is the real deal! Burrow just set a rookie QB record! 3 straight 300 yard passing performances by a rookie QB. Playing in BAL is no easy task but let’s see what this rookie is all about! Joe should be lowed due to the match-up but I’m loving the potential in this one!

Teddy Bridgewater CAR @ ATL (32nd)(FD-$7,100)(DK-$5,900)

Carolina Panthers QB Teddy Bridgewater

Teddy! It’s great to see him on the field and running around again isn’t it? Let’s be honest this Carolina team has a little momentum winning two in a row! They now head to ATL (0-4) and the match-up couldn’t be any better.. The Falcons are reeling, to say the least, while the Panthers putting it all together! No disrespect to Teddy but this play has everything to do with the match-up.

Phil Rivers IND @ CLE (30th)(FD-$6,900)(DK-$5,800)

Indianapolis Colts QB Phillip Rivers

Phil is Phil! Sunday in CLE may just be the game we see the old bolo tie wearing gun slinger! CLE ranks 20th overall vs. the pass while Rivers sits around 7th in overall net passing yards per attempt. I know that’s a long shot statistic but it could be a perfect storm in Cleveland!

C.J. Beathard SF v MIA (29th)(FD-$6,000)(DK-$5,300)

San Francisco 49ers QB CJ Beathard

Assuming Jimmy G is still out for week 5 and assuming Nick Mullens is benched for C.J. I really like this match-up. You know what they say when we assume? Makes an ass out of you and me. Get it?

Tua Tagovailoa MIA @ SF (8th)(FD-$6,200)(DK-$5,400)

Miami Dolphins rookie QB Tua Tagovailoa

Dolphins coach Brian Flores hasn’t committed to a starter in week 5. The entire fantasy football community is on pins and needles waiting for Tua’s debut. I’m with you! Lets pay close attention to this one…

RUNNING BACK

Ezekiel Elliot DAL v NYG (17th)(FD-$9,000)(DK-$7,800)

Dallas Cowboys RB Ezekiel Elliot

Here are some cheaper options I’m considering at RB!

D’Ernest Johnson CLE v IND (2nd)(FD-$5,300)(DK-$4,700)

Cleveland Browns RB D’Ernest Johnson

I’m sure you’ve heard Nick Chubb is on the IR. It’s very unfortunate but it’s now an opportunity for Johnson. Who filled in very well Sunday. To the tune of 13 carries for 95 yards. CLE has been very run heavy the first few games of the season. I don’t see that changing now. Hunt will no doubt see all the passing down work but what if I could promise you 10+ carries from D’Ernest?

J.K. Dobbins BAL v CIN (22nd)(FD-$5,200)(DK-$4,300)

Baltimore Ravens rookie RB J.K. Dobbins

Something has to give here right? Ingram, Gus and Dobbins are all in the mix. It’s driving JK owners nuts. Sunday v CIN should afford Dobbins more chances. With chances come opportunity. With opportunity comes fantasy points.

Reggie Bonnafon CAR @ ATL (13th)(FD-$4,900)(DK-$4,200)

Carolina Rb Reggie Bonnafon

We all thought Reggie was CMC’s handcuff right? Come find out Mike Davis is good at football! Reggie caught a TD in week 4 then they sent him back down to the practice squad Monday. So if they call Reggie up again they have to keep him on the active roster or risk losing him on waivers. CMC is still a week out so I fully expect a Davis/Reggie backfield week 5 in ATL. It’s such a plus match-up both backs can be successful.

Brian Hill ATL v CAR (31st)(FD-$4,800)(DK-$4,000)

Atlanta Falcons RB Brian Hill

Hill was given some very high upside attempts Monday but fell short of anything productive. Which is fine. Just sets him up nice Sunday v CAR who just happens to be the worst graded team v pass catching RB’s. Carolina has given up 27 receptions to RB’s.

Jordan Wilkins IND @ CLE (27th)(FD-$4,800)(DK-$4,000)

Indianapolis Colts RB Jordan Wilkins

A lot of you were upset with Jon Taylor’s usage Sunday and rightfully so. Hines and Wilkins received some major work behind him. Is that a sign of things to come? I doubt with a young stud like JT but we need to think ahead and prepare just in case.

Anthony McFarland Jr. PIT v PHI (19th)(FD-$4,500)(DK-$4,000)

Pittsburgh Steelers RB Anthony McFarland Jr.

James Connor is no doubt the lead back in PIT. McFarland and Snell split carries behind him Sunday. Anthony took advantage and did more with his carries then Snell. I have no issue putting McFarland in some of my GGP lines Sunday. I’m expecting the rookies first NFL touchdown at home this weekend! The word “electric” was also thrown around after his week 4 preformance!

WIDE RECEIVER

DeAndre Hopkins ARZ @ NYJ (10th)(FD-$8,700)(DK-$7,900)

Arizona Cardinals WR DeAndre Hopkins

Here are some cheaper options I’m considering at WR!

CeeDee Lamb DAL v NYG (19th)(FD-$5,900)(DK-$6,000)

Dallas Cowboys WR CeeDee Lamb

Oh c’mon! CeeDee is still ONLY $5,900 on FanDuel? Fresh off a 5 reception, 79 yard and 2 touchdown game his price goes up only $300? It’s shocking quite frankly! He’s right on the cusp of being too much for B&B but until his price increases get used to seeing him here! Can you blame me?

Cole Beasley BUF @ TEN (21st)(FD-$5,200)(DK-$4,700)

Buffalo Bills WR Cole Beasley

I’ve never been big on Cole and I was wrong Sunday. This Buffalo team is very good and Josh Allen can support 3-4 WR’s! I know! It’s wild right? Cole is currently on pace for 1,000 yards too! Beasley will continue to be a favorite option for Allen moving forward and that alone makes him worth the price!

Tim Patrick DEN @ NE (24th)(FD-$5,200)(DK-$4,400)

Denver Broncos WR Time Patrick

I could write and write about Tim and his prospects all day long. How many people would read it though? To keep it simple, Patrick lead the Broncos in targets, receptions and receiving yards Sunday. He looks to have a strong connection with young QB Brett Rypien. At his DFS price that’s enough for me to add him!

Hunter Renfrow LV @ KC (1st)(FD-$5,100)(DK-$4,900)

Las Vegas Raiders WR Hunter Renfrow

The Raiders rookie WR’s are still hurt it seems. Giving Hunter more playing time and targets. It’s a tough task Sunday vs. a fast and hungry KC secondary but Carr has looked fantastic to start the season. The snaps are there and the price is right!

Jeff Smith NYJ v ARZ (3rd)(FD-$4,900)(DK-$3,000)

New York Jets WR Jeff Smith

Who? How many people in the world do you think have this name? Jeff Smith! Another kid who has been thrust into a starting role due to injuries. Keep a close eye on Perriman. If he’s unable to play Sunday Mr. Smith will play opposite of Crowder and for this price you could do worse. Right?

Gabriel Davis BUF @ TEN (21st)(FD-$4,700)(DK-$3,400)

Buffalo Bills rookie WR Gabriel Davis

Gabe Davis played so well last Sunday I had to add him again! As I said above, Allen can support all these different combos of WR’s! Davis has no doubt carved out a role in Buffalo!

Isaiah Ford MIA @ SF (11th)(FD-$4,600)(DK-$3,500)

Miami Dolphins WR Isaiah Ford

Has Ford taken over the WR2 role in MIA? Not sure. Has he taken to Chan Gailey’s offensive game plan? Absolutely! Whatever is going on I want a slice of it. Ford looks fast and elusive! He’s the reason I created this article!

TIGHT END

Travis Kelce KC v LV (8th)(FD-$7,800)(DK-$6,400)

Kansas City Chiefs TE Travis Kelce

Aside from the no doubt must start stud TE’s this position is pretty shallow in week 5. I t would be rude of me to just skip it all together!

Here are some cheaper options I’m considering at TE!

Jordan Akins HOU v JAX (24th)(FD-$4,800)(DK-$3,300)

Houston Texans TE Jordan Akins

Akins suffered a concussion Sunday so keep an eye on him. This Sunday, week 5, against JAX is a very juicy match-up. If he plays he’s in my lineup.

Dawson Knox BUF @ TEN (25th)(FD-$4,600)(DK-$3,600)

Buffalo Bills TE Dawson Knox

Tyler Kroft BUF @ TEN (25th)(FD-$4,400)(DK-$3,000)

I’m going to lump both Buffalo TE’s together here if you don’t mind? What are the chances we see a repeat of a few weeks ago and both BUF TE catch a TD? I’d say not half bad given the match-up!

Blake Bell DAL v NYG (9th)(FD-$4,200)(DK-$2,800)

Dallas Cowboys TE Blake Bell

Raise your hand if you’ve heard of Blake Bell? That’s what I thought! Dallas welcomes the Giants to Jerry World Sunday in an NFC East match-up. It has all the makings of Zeke Elliot game here. In turn, screams 2-3 TD game from their TE’s! Shultz is the TE1 in Dallas but don’t forget about Bell!

Dan Arnold ARZ @ NYJ (18th)(FD-$4,200)(DK-$3,200)

Arizona Cardinals TE Dan Arnold

Dan Connor AKA Dan Arnold makes his return to B&B simply due to match-up. The O/U in this one sits at 48.5 points as of now. It just screams Cardinals blow out doesn’t it?

Here are two of my sample lines I’m going to use for week 5! Keep in mind these lines are for entertainment purposes! Please play responsible!

Fanduel 10/11 Main

Bottom of the Barrel WK4 (NFL DFS)

Bottom of the Barrel
9/28/20
Chris Robin https://twitter.com/DetroitBeastie

I’ve long said what we do as fantasy sports writers is fleeting and quite fickle. Things change so fast day to day we don’t have long to bask in our glory. It’s a good pace if we fail miserably.

Regardless, we need to find common ground. Somewhere between, “I’m good at what I do.” or along the lines of, “Just following the numbers.”

We’re entering week 4 of the NFL season and little has taken shape. You read that right! The injuries have been piling up. With that comes opportunity! It’s up to us to be aware of the depth on each team and specifically on a positional basis!

Let’s take a look at week 4 and where we can take advantage of those opportunities!

QUARTERBACK

I have a new idea! A new feature if you will. Give out the most expensive player at each position as we get to it. Putting into perspective the B&B prices!

Lamar Jackson BAL @ WSH (21st)(FD-$9,600)(DK-$8,100)

Baltimore Ravens QB Lamar Jackson

Here are some cheaper options I’m considering at QB!

Jared Goff LAR v NYG (11th)(FD-$7,500)(DK-$6,700)

Los Angeles Rams QB Jared Goff

Goff and the Rams fell behind big to Buffalo then came alive. That was last week and this is now week 4. The Giants got absolutely hammered by San Francisco Sunday. Nick Mullens threw for 343 yards while their RB’s went nuts. What do you think Goff can do?

Matthew Stafford DET v NO (28th)(FD-$7,200)(DK-$5,900)

Detroit QB Matthew Stafford

We’re three weeks in and Stafford hasn’t looked right to me. I can’t put my finger on. Getting sacked and throwing awful interceptions. Regardless, Matt had a great showing Sunday in Arizona. 22 completions and 8.7 yards per attempt. With Kenny G back expect the Stat-pad-ford of old moving forward! New Orleans comes to town week 4 and I’m fully expecting 250+ passing yards and 2 TD passes as his floor in this one!

Ryan Fitzpatrick MIA v SEA (31st)(FD-$7,100)(DK-$5,400)

Miami Dolphins QB Ryan Fitzpatrick

Miami’s passing attack is coming together! Right? I mean Fitz has gone over 24 fantasy points his last two games. Ryan is averaging 8 yards per attempt and 226 yards a game. We all know the wheels are going to come off at a certain point but I’m riding it until they do! Sunday MIA is home vs. an awesomely talented offensive SEA team. Their defense however not so much. The Seahawks are giving up, on average, 28 points a game.

Baker Mayfield CLE @ DAL (30th)(FD-$7,000)(DK-$5,800)

Cleveland Browns QB Baker Mayfield

This one here isn’t so much about Baker but the Cowboys defense. In the first three week of the season they’ve given up 97 points! Ninety seven! Do the math that’s 32+ points a game! If my O/U math is correct this one sits at 55.5. Highest of the day, at this point. 31-28 final here I’m going to guess. Roster Baker in week 4! Off the record, I actually like all of Bakers commercials! Have you seen the new book club one? Classic Baker!

RUNNING BACK

Ezekiel Elliot DAL v CLE (29th)(FD-$9,000)(DK-$8,300)

Dallas Cowboys RB Ezekiel Elliot

Here are some cheaper options I’m considering at RB!

Carlos Hyde SEA @ MIA (15th)(FD-$5,700)(DK-$5,300)

Seattle Seahawks RB Carlos Hyde

This one is super simple. Chris Carson got gator rolled. Was super nasty and quite dirty if you ask me. Thankfully, Carson will be fine. Knee sprain out 1-2 weeks. In the meantime this Seattle offense is averaging 37 points a game. I’d want any part of it I could get!

Alexander Mattison MIN @ HOU (28th)(FD-$5,500)(DK-$4,000)

Minnesota Vikings RB Alexander Mattison

Dalvin Cook is the play here but that’s not Bottom of the Barrel way! Cook has scored 20.8 fantasy points a game so far. Houston is allowing the 5th most fantasy points (27.4) a game to the opposing teams backfield! Last I checked Mattison is part of the MIN backfield! Look for the Vikes to open up their playbook Sunday. 0-4 would be an absolute disaster!

Myles Gaskin MIA v SEA (5th)(FD-$5,400)(DK-$5,000)

Miami Dolphins RB Myles Gaskin

Scroll up to the Ryan Fitzpatrick section. Ok good you’re back! Same principles apply! Myles carried the ball 22 times Sunday and caught 5 passes! If that’s the case again in week 4 I’m expecting some big numbers out of Gaskin! He also saw a 74.5% snap share. I’m telling you now get in now on the ground floor! Before his price goes way up!

Chase Edmonds ARZ @ CAR (31st)(FD-$5,300)(DK-$4,200)

Arizona Cardinals RB Chase Edmunds

This is strictly a gut call. Drake is the RB1 and seeing all the work. Chase gets a few looks a game and I firmly believe he explodes for one in Carolina Sunday. Full disclosure, his price on FD is too steep for me. DK play only.

Travis Homer SEA @ MIA (16th)(FD-$5,200)(DK-$4,000)

Seattle Seahawks RB Travis Homer

How are the targets and touches going to pan out in the Seattle backfield? Maybe a Homer/Hyde combo? Whatever the case may be I want all the SEA offense I can get right now! Homer has a legit shot of seeing RB1 duties Sunday with Carson out.

Latavius Murray NO @ DET (24th)(FD-$4,900)(DK-$4,900)

New Orleans Saints RB Latavius Murray

What’s funny is the fact I thought Arizona was going to hammer the Lions Sunday. I think the Saints are going to wail on Detroit this Sunday! Alvin has looked like the best player in football. So much so what’s the use in playing Murray? Latavius has seen double digit touches in back to back weeks now. Plenty of room for him Sunday in Detroit!

J.J. Taylor NE @ KC (18th)(FD-$4,700)(DK-$4,000)

New England Patriots RB J.J. Taylor

Pay close attention to Damien Harris and his availability this coming Sunday. Same with James White. If both men are still out I’d take a flyer on JJ in a massive GPP. Rex Burkhead scored three times Sunday! Why can’t JJ? That’s normally how this team rolls!

WIDE-RECEIVER

Michael Thomas NO @ DET (24th)(FD-$8,800)(DK-$7,600)

New Orleans Saints WR Michael Thomas

Here are some cheaper options I’m considering at WR!

CeeDee Lamb DAL v CLE (24th)(FD-$5,600)(DK-$5,400)

Dallas Cowboys WR CeeDee Lamb

Lamb has looked awesome! Catching 16 of his 21 targets to start the season for 230 yards and a TD. Lamb will go face to face with a CLE defense that’s given up 5 TD’s to opposing WR’s. Lamb finds the end zone this week! Book it!

Justin Jefferson MIN @ HOU (9th)(FD-$5,400)(DK-$5,200)

Minnesota Vikings rookie WR Justin Jefferson

Why hello there Mr. Jefferson! What a coming out party! Have you noticed its taken a few weeks for these blue chip rookies to get going? No looking back now! Justin will be in ALL my lines until his price is raised!

Tre’Quan Smith NO @ DET (24th)(FD-$5,300)(DK-$5,000)

New Orleans Saints WR Tre’Quan Smith

Smith hasn’t hit that 75yd homerun of a TD yet this season! The targets are there! Alvin Kamara is as well. Don’t fret don’t frown Sunday in Detroit is Tre’Quan’s time!

James Washington PIT @ TEN (19th)(FD-$4,900)(DK-$4,800)

Pittsburgh Steelers WR James Washington

Did you know James led the team in targets and receptions Sunday? Juju is the big dog on this team in terms of receiving BUT if Diontae can’t play due to a concussion then watch out for Washington.

Adam Humphries TEN v PIT (25th)(FD-$4,600)(DK-$4,000)

Tennessee Titans WR Adam Humphries

Adam has taken full advantage of a AJ Brown-less Titans team. He’s also their full time slot guy now. At these bottom of the barrel prices sing me up!

Gabriel Davis BUF @ OAK (3rd)(FD-$4,600)(DK-$3,200)

Buffalo Bills rookie WR Gabriel Davis

This new Buffalo Bills passing game is making a star out of everyone! Again, pay close attention to John Brown and his status Sunday. If he’s out I’m firing up Davis in any and all lineups! He’s not a flash in the pan folks, this kid is here to stay!

TIGHT END

Travis Kelce KC v NE (5th)(FD-$7,600)(DK-$6,800)

Kansas City Chiefs TE Travis Kelce

Here are some cheaper options I’m considering at TE!

Dalton Schultz DAL v CLE (28th)(FD-$4,900)(DK-$4,300)

Dallas Cowboys TE Dalton Schultz

Dalton is seeing a ton of volume, target wise. I know the excitement around him heading into week 3 was very high. Be patient and go back to the well this weekend. Cleveland has surrendered 22 catches and 3 total TD’s to the TE position already this season.

Logan Thomas WSH v BAL (30th)(FD-$4,900)(DK-$3,500)

Washington Football Team TE Logan Thomas

His volume alone makes him a play. Add in his cheap pricing across the platform and bam you have your DFS TE for week 4!

Dawson Knox BUF @ OAK (11th)(FD-$4,600)(DK-$3,500)

Buffalo Bills TE Dawson Knox

Something something Josh Allen something something MVP.

Dan Arnold ARZ @ CAR (4th)(FD-$4,300)(DK-$2,700)

DFS is all a matter of perspective and opportunity. With Maxx Williams on IR, set to miss 3 weeks, that makes Dan Arizona’s TE1. This offense starts and ends with Hopkins and Drake but at these prices who’s to say Arnold can’t be productive!

Gerald Everett LAR v NYG (6th)(FD-$4,200)(DK-$2,500)

Los Angeles Rams TE Gerald Everett

Nothing special to say here. Only the fact the Giants are in town after taking a drubbing at the hands of San Francisco. Does Everett get loose for a TD?

Adam Trautman NO @ DET (12th)(FD-$4,000)(DK-$2,500)

New Orleans Saints rookie TE Adam Trautman

Adam might be my favorite cheapy TE play of the weekend! As I’ve said before this DFS game is all about opportunity! If Cook can’t play then I’m locking Adam in all of my lines!

Here are two of my sample lines I’m going to use for week 4! Keep in mind these lines are for entertainment purposes! Please play responsible!

Bottom of the Barrel

Chris Robin https://twitter.com/DetroitBeastie

That was fun! How did you do? Good or bad we have another chance later this week! That’s the beauty of daily fantasy sports! To be honest we have 15+ weeks left to get it right!

I’d love to hear any comments or testimonials how Bottom of the Barrel worked out for you in week 1! Thank you for all the support! If you keep reading I’ll keep writing!

These first few weeks of the NFL season are always the toughest DFS wise. Teams are still working out their positional rotations. Coaches are still apprehensive to give players a full work-load. As the weeks continue adding up so will our bankroll!

Enough with the nonsense! Lets dig into week 2! The match-ups are waiting!

QUARTERBACK

I have a new idea! A new feature if you will. Give out the most expensive player at each position as we get to it. Putting into perspective the B&B prices!

Lamar Jackson BAL @ HOU (FD-$9,500)(DK-$8,200)

Baltimore Ravens QB Lamar Jackson

Here are some cheaper options I’m considering at QB!

Phil Rivers IND v MIN (FD-$7,100)(DK-$5,900)

Indianapolis Colts QB Phillip Rivers

The more things change the more they stay the same. Case and point, Phil Rivers. He’s going to continue throwing the ball 40+ times a game. As the Colts get more familiar with each other the fantasy point will follow! MIN is 27th overall v the pass. Sneaky good week ahead for Mr. Bolo Tie!

Gardner Minshew II JAC @ TEN (FD-$7,000)(DK-5,800)

Jacksonville Jaguars QB Gardner Minshew

I always love to see others flourish and succeed! Gardner was outstanding on Sunday! The Jags hit the road Sunday to play the Titans who are 24th vs. the pass. I fully expect Minshew to attempt more then 20 passes in this one. His price point is an absolute steal!

Ryan Tannehill TEN v JAC (FD-$7,000)(DK-$5,900)

Tennessee Titans QB Ryan Tannehill

Tanny has finally broken through and found a home in Tennessee. He should find himself comfortably in our lineups on Sunday. At this price he only needs 17-18 points to return value! Consider that his floor on Sunday!

Teddy Bridgewater CAR @ TB (FD-$6,900)(DK-$5,800)

Carolina Panthers QB Teddy Bridgewater

Teddy looked fantastic Sunday v the Raiders! The dinking and ducking was working. His downfield passes looked crisp and on point. Although Tampa is a tougher match-up on paper look at what New Orleans did! Not comparing the two teams. Merely saying the confidence isn’t there for the Bucs yet.

Daniel Jones NYG @ CHI (FD-$6,900)(DK-$5,800)

New York Giants QB Daniel Jones

Danny Dimes heads to Chicago Sunday to square off against the 25th overall ranked Chicago Bears defense. With Saquon at the RB helm look for the WR corps to get open early and often. Jones is one of my favorite plays of the week!

RUNNING BACK

Christian McCaffrey CAR @ TB (FD-$10,500)(DK-$10,000)

Carolina Panther RB Christian McCaffrery

Here are some cheaper options I’m considering at RB!

Ronald Jones II TB v CAR (FD-$5,900)(DK-$5,200)

Tampa Bay Buccaneers RB Ronald Jones II

More expensive then I’d like for B&B purposes. When the match-up is there though I spare no expense! Carolina was eaten alive in week 1 by Raider RB Josh Jacobs. Rojo is still the RB1 in Tampa but for how long? Let’s take advantage while we can!

James Robinson JAC @ TEN (FD-$5,300)(DK-$4,400)

Jacksonville Jaguars rookie RB James Robinson

J-Rob isn’t a household name. He’s the prototypical stud workhorse RB. However he’s getting ALL the work in Jacksonville. Which isn’t saying much but he’s literally getting ALL the work at RB! No other running back touched the ball Sunday. At his price this week mixed with the volume I’d be hard pressed not to roster him!

Zack Moss BUF @ MIA (FD-$5,200)(DK-$4,800)

Buffalo Bills RB Zach Moss

Moss showed us why we drafted him across the board in all formats. The rushing work was split with Devin which was to be expected right? He caught three passes though and seemed to be on the field every time the Bills were inside the 20! Devin’s price on Fanduel is $6,000! Why would pay that when you can roster Moss at $800 less bucks?

Malcolm Brown LAR @ PHI (FD-$5,200)(DK-$5,700)

Los Angeles Rams RB Malcolm Brown

Leading up to Sundays game coach McVay said their backfield was going to be a true RBBC. Correct me if I’m wrong but it wasn’t that bad! Brown saw the most work Sunday. 18 carries 79 yards 2 TD’s 4 targets 3 receptions 31 yards. Cam Akers looked good don’t get me wrong but if they truly go with the, “hot hand” approach then Malcolm is your guy!

Josh Adams NYJ v SF (FD-$4,900)(DK-$4,400)

New York Jets RB Josh Adams

Josh is the reason I created this article. He’s very cheap but there is a little upside. If Le’veon Bell sits out week 2 with a hamstring issue and rookie La’Mical Perine can’t get his ankle injury healed up, Adams will be splitting carries with Frank Gore. It’s not an ideal tandem but the 49ers are ranked 27th vs. the run at the moment. SF will no doubt figure it out but the time to pounce is now!

Tony Pollard DAL v ATL (FD-$4,800)(DK-$4,900)

Dallas Cowboys RB Tony Pollard

Here me out on this one. We all know the offense runs through Zeke. Leaves little to no work for any other RB. Fast forward to Sunday in Dallas. The Falcons come to town and it’s going to magical! The O/U currently sits at 52. Second highest on the schedule. I could see a scenario where this game is so fast paced bang bang, Zeke needs a series or two off. In comes Tony! At $4,800 it wouldn’t take much for him to return value! Think about it…

WIDE-RECEIVER

Davante Adams GB v DET (FD-$8,600)(DK-$8,100)

Green Bay Packers WR Davante Adams

Here are some cheaper options I’m considering at WR!

Anthony Miller CHI v NYG (FD-$5,700)(DK-$5,200)

Chicago Bears WR Anthony Miller

Mr. Miller is fast becoming one of my favorite WR2’s. Allen Robinson (FD-$7,000)(DK-$6,400) is Chicago’s WR1 without question but in Detroit we saw what Miller can do in a hurry! Looking ahead to week 2 vs. the NYG and their 28th ranked passing defense there’s just no way he doesn’t put up 10+ fantasy points.

Allen Lazard GB v DET (FD-$5,600)(DK-$5,300)

Green Bay Packers WR Alan Lazard

Lazard out snapped all other WR’s not named Davante Adams. Lazard was tied for 4th in terms of targets but it’s not always about targets. It’s what you do with your opportunities! Let me be honest with you here, I don’t know this kid. I don’t know much about him. So not to be rude to Allen but the decision to play him Sunday has everything to do with the match-up. The Detroit Lions just don’t win in Green Bay. Heck, they don’t win in general.

Parris Campbell IND v MIN (FD-$5,300)(DK-$4,500)

Indianapolis Colts WR Parris Campbell

Are you as excited for Parris as I am? Hardly a breakout game in week 1, Campbell is trending in the right direction. It’s only a matter of time before he goes for 100yds and 2 TD’s. This Sunday at home vs. the Vikings could just be that time! Minnesota’s secondary is young and inexperienced. I want all the shares of Parris I can get for Sunday. He’s a chunk play kind of kid and there will be plenty of chunks to be had! Wait, ah never mind.

CeeDee Lamb DAL v ATL (FD-$5,200)(DK-$4,700)

Dallas Cowboys WR CeeDee Lamb

Lamb looked fantastic on Sunday! Cooper is clearly their WR1 but who cares when CeeDee is this cheap on both sites. His price plus the match-up vs. ATL is a massive green light for me on Sunday.

Mercole Hardman KC v LAC (FD-$5,000)(DK-$3,800)

Kansas City Chiefs WR Mercole Hardman

What a bummer! Mercole only saw 20 snaps in the season opener Thursday. That will be short lived I promise you! At this point he’s not on anyone radar! I firmly believe Pat and KC shows Hardman some major love Sunday in LA.

Laviska Shenault Jr. JAC @ TEN (FD-$4,900)(DK-$4,200)

Jacksonville Jaguars WR Laviska Shenault Jr.

Talk about excitement, Laviska is destined for stardom in Jacksonville. Gardner is one heck of a QB and he doesn’t care what we think. The Titans are ranked 24th overall vs. the pass and I’d bet the farm they only up the ante with getting Shenault involved Sunday!

TIGHT END

Travis Kelce KC @ LAC (FD-$7,800)(DK-$7,000)

Kansas City Chiefs TE Travis Kelce

Here are some cheaper options I’m considering at TE!

O.J. Howard TB v CAR (FD-$4,800)(DK-$3,900)

Tampa Bay Buccaneers TE OJ Howard

Ayyyeee! OJ scored in week 1! Now what? On DK he’s dirt cheap! I’ll take my chances week to week with him in this offense.

Logan Thomas WSH @ ARZ (FD-$4,700)(DK-$3,600)

Washington Football Team TE Logan Thomas

Logan played 74% of the snaps and led the team in targets! I know right! Why do I have this sneaking suspicion Thomas throws a TD or catches another on some sort of gadget play?

Jordan Akins HOU v BAL (FD-$4,600)(DK-$3,300)

Houston Texans TE Jordan Akins

Jordan out snapped teammate Jordan Fells 48-25 and looked really good in the middle of the field. At his bottom of the barrel pricing I’m taking a chance on him in what looks to be a high scoring affair (O/U 53)!

Dan Arnold ARZ v WSH (FD-$4,400)(DK-$3,300)

Dan Connor

I know what you’re thinking, Dan Connor. Or is that just me? No he’s not the dad from Rosanne! He is however, the TE1 in a rising Arizona offense! Any cheaper and you’d be using guys on IR.

Here is one of my sample lines I’m going to use for week 1! Keep in mind these lines are for entertainment purposes! Please play responsible!

8/20 FD Main

Also look for updated lines closer to the start of the season! This Thursday 9/17 and Sunday morning 9/20!

2021 WR Prospect Watch

2021 WR Prospect Watch
7/28/20

The 2020 draft class was loaded at the wide receiver position and like deja vu, 2021 is also loaded! 2021 also has a pair of Alabama WR’s that should be selected in the 1st round. Crazy! I can see around 15 WR’s that could be selected in top 100 players in 2021. With plenty of depth even past that. For now I will give you a little on the top 15 names you can be looking forward to for the 2021 draft.

Davids 2021 QB Prospect Watch! https://www.dfscheatsheet.com/2021-qb-prospect-watch/nfl/07/

LSU WR Ja’Marr Chase

Ja’Marr Chase – LSU: Natural hands, attacks space and gets open. Runs great routes. Adjust to the ball and tracks it well. Chase shows to be a complete WR for the next level with minimum weakness. He isn’t the most dynamic player on the field but he is pretty athletic still. This is how minor his flaws look. How does he do in 2020 with out Joe Brady offense and Burrows amazing year.

Alabama WR DeVonta Smith

DeVonta Smith – Alabama: Smith would have been a first rounder if he came out last year but decided to return to Alabama. Smith has reliable hands all over the field and isn’t afraid to make catches in traffic. Has a great stutter step to get a free release. He has a thin frame which can make it hard to get off a strong jam at the line.

Purdue WR Rondale Moore

Rondale Moore – Purdue: This guy is a human Joystick of a player. Run after catch machine that has amazing speed, explosiveness and acceleration. Deadly in space with the ball. Goal is to get the ball in his hands quickly but has speed to work all levels of the field. Downside is he is small and has dealt with some injuries. Missed 8 games in 2019 with a hamstring.

Minnesota WR Rashod Bateman

Rashod Bateman – Minnesota: Alpha player on the field that fights for the ball and wins contested catches. Fluid and controlled in his routes. Great after the catch and good balance to keep picking up yards. He needs to improve his release at the line of scrimmage. He needs to continue to get stronger fighting for balls at the next level.

Alabama WR Jaylon Waddle

Jaylen Waddle – Alabama: Good catch radius with some amazing wheels. He gets to top speed fast and seems to always have another gear. Has a nice stutter step at the top of his routes to get free releases. He does a good job keeping his speed while avoiding defenders. Great return ability as well. Now the next man up post Jeudy and Ruggs, Waddle needs to show an expanded route tree and learn to slow down on his routes at times.

Ohio State WR Chris Olave

Chris Olave – Ohio State: Olave is a similar prospect as Devonta Smith. Smooth routes and amazing body control, especially at the sidelines. Good burst and decent speed for separation. Ran a complete route tree, showing good ability breaking on his routes. Olave has a smaller frame that seems maxed out to gain much more size.

USC WR Amon-Ra St. Brown

Amon-Ra St.Brown – USC: shows good burst agility and body control. Can beat man coverage and has a good ability to create space off his routes. Strong hands when catching the ball. Shows the ability to be a threat after the catch and tracks the ball well on vertical routes. He needs to improve on his run blocking angles. He needs to improve his decision making on re routes underneath coverage.

Auburn WR Seth Williams

Seth Williams – Auburn: ideal size and weight to be an X receiver. He possesses strong hands who rarely catches the ball with his frame. He is strong to beat man coverage. He is not afraid to go across the middle and can be a nightmare in the red zone with his size and strength. He won’t wow anyone with speed and can struggle with winning routes with his speed and quickness. Runs a limited route tree.

Wake Forest WR Sage Surratt

Sage Surratt – Wake Forrest: Natural athlete with great size. He has solid play strength and uses it in all aspects of the game. Runs a good vertical route as well he runs fluid routes overall. Plucks the ball out of the air with ease. Smart player (was accepted to Harvard). Surratt is a twitchy athlete and doesn’t explode out of his cuts. Missed last 4 games of 2019 with a shoulder injury.

LSU WR Terrance Marshall

Terrace Marshall Jr. – LSU: Marshall has the rare blend of size speed and strength teams will love. Runs routes with great timing and shows the ability to line up in the slot and outside. Many weapon techniques to beat coverage at the top of his routes. Tracks the ball well and adjust his body to the ball. Outstanding balls skills with only 2 drops in 2019. Not a dynamic route under but good. Missed time in 2019 with a foot injury. How does he step up with lesser QB and no Joe Brady as an offensive coordinator?

Clemson WR Justyn Ross

Justyn Ross – Clemson: great size and strength. He positions himself to the QB well to get the ball. Snags the ball out of the air well. Good ball skills to track and adjust to the ball. Decisive and physical after the catch. Off season neck/shoulder surgery has put his 2020 season on hold and unlikely. This could cause him to drop but be a steal. He lacks elite speed and separation at the top of his routes.

Oklahoma St. WR Tylan Wallace

Tylan Wallace – Oklahoma State: smooth and sudden route runner who sells his routes well. High catches the ball well and catches in traffic. Strong and competitive runner after the catch. Shows ability to block and be physical. He struggles to beat press coverage at the line and works out of a spread offense designed to get him the ball in spaces.

Auburn WR Anthony Schwartz

Anthony Schwartz – Auburn: shows the ability to play inside and outside with a good blend of speed and agility. Quick off the line and eats up space fast. Home run ability. Tracks the ball well and is tough and willing to go across the middle. He lacks mass and strength. He doesn’t have a lot of wiggle just straight speed.

Florida State WR Tamorrion Terry

Tamorrion Terry – Florida State: tall receiver with good size and big play ability. Shows speed on go routes and double moves to get open. Average 58 yards per catch on his go routes. Huge catch radius and has good foot work and vision. He has occasional drops to his name he will need to clean up. He needs to adjust to the ball better at times. He can be more aggressive attacking the ball out of the air.

Missouri WR Damon Hazelton

Damon Hazelton – Missouri: big catch radius and shown good ability to make over the shoulder catches via his tape at Virginia Tech. Shows good ball skills and strong hands. He can stop on a dime and go again with ease. Hes on his 3rd college (Ball State, VT and now Mizzu) whats the issue that he has had to move so many times? He needs to be more physical, attacking the ball for his size.

2021 RB Prospect Watch

2021 RB Prospect Watch
7/23/20
David Reed https://twitter.com/Nfldraft_dwr

To continue our series after we looked at the QB’s for the upcoming 2021 Draft class, it’s time we move on to the running backs. Running back rankings are a bit more fluid than the QB’s rankings with there being a larger pool of them that translate to the next level better than QB’s do. Ill provide you with 10 RB’s that you should be excited to watch and could be players to look towards at the next level.

If you missed it, check out Davids 2021 QB Prospect Watch here! https://www.dfscheatsheet.com/2021-qb-prospect-watch/nfl/07/

Clemson RB Travis Etienne

Travis Etienne – Clemson: Speed and Burst are his best traits, but shows good balance and ability to catch the ball. His weakness is between the tackles. His vision and natural feel for space and cutback lanes isn’t as good, but with his speed can make up for it.

Alabama RB Najee Harris

Najee Harris – Alabama: This man is massive and hard to tackle, but fairly nimble with good speed and pass catching ability for his size. Is an upright runner who leaves his body open to punishment. He needs to improve on some juking/spin moves and not bull rushing everyone to extend his longevity but good luck tackling him.

Oklahoma State RB Chuba Hubbard

Chuba Hubbard – Oklahoma State: Patient runner who understands the blocking schemes and when to hit the holes but shows good acceleration to hit the opening. Great vision as a result of this. He is very inconsistent in pass protection and not the most natural pass catcher but not a liability either.

Georgia RB Zamir White

Zamir White – Georgia: Another Georgia product at the RB position. Good speed and balance. Shows ability to pass block. Shows good hands as well. Though he has good speed he doesn’t have breakaway speed and can be limited some in space with Elusiveness. He is also as a ACL injury on his resume back in 2018 as well, but is built to be a 3 down back at the next level.

Ohio State RB Master Teague

Master Teague – Ohio State: Physical skills jump off right away. Explosive short area burst and an aggressive running style. Shows some nice twitch in his hips to become more elusive in his game. Reported out of Tuscaloose football camp in 2017 he was running in the 4.3 so he shows some speed with his size and power. He had an Achilles injury in spring practice that could set him back some in 2020. This is the 2nd lower body injury he’s had. (2017 senior year in high school) He had limited time playing behind JK Dobbins and most of his time came in blow outs last year, can he replicate as a full time starter!

Ohio State RB Trey Sermon

Trey Sermon – Ohio State: You did not read this wrong, Ohio State as another draft eligible back that you should be looking at as well besides Teague. He transferred in from Oklahoma. He is another physical runner who can pound the ball between the tackles. He’s a great pass blocker and show good body control when running. Sermon lacks long speed but isn’t the most dynamic runner. He also suffered a knee injury in 2019.
• Kylin Hill – Mississippi State: Strong runner who’s built and hard to bring down. Quick to make a decision as a runner. Lacks long speed and can have a bad habit of running into his blockers. He needs to learn to stiff arm and not try to plow over everyone to help keep his body fresh long term.

Penn State RB Journey Brown

Journey Brown – Penn State: Explosive athlete that we could be looking at the 4.2/4.3 range for his 40 time. Former track star who has put on good size to be more than just a speed player. He as so much potential that has yet to be tapped into which is exciting with him. He needs to learn and press the line of scrimmage more. He needs to prove his worth as a pass catcher, hardly used in this phase of the game. Is it because he can’t catch or just hasn’t had the opportunity. A big 2020 season could have him sky rocket up the boards with his potential.

Minnesota RB Mohamed Ibrahim

Mohamed Ibrahim – Minnesota: Shows good suddenness in short spaces with a strong cut and go ability. Good balance and power. Sets the line well and waits for his blocks. Can run angry and run over people. He will not win any foot races and has dealt with some lower body injuries in his career so far.

Memphis RB Kenneth Gainwell

Kenneth Gainwell – Memphis: Memphis last few year has continued to produce some impressive RB’s with Pollard and Antonio Gibson last 2 years. Gainwell is a decisive ball carrier that is quick and slippery. He can exploded through holes and packs some punch with his smaller size to push the pile. He has good hands and has lined up in the slot as a WR. Is biggest weakness is pass protection, but has the mentality to put his body out there to try and block.

2020 Fantasy Buy & Sell All 32 Teams

Buy & Sell all 32 Teams
5/5/20
Chris Robin https://twitter.com/DetroitBeastie

I was burned out. I was tired. Not with the idea of writing and talking fantasy football. The thought of reading another rookie top ten exhausted me. The thought of talking top ten rookie running back rankings literally made me cringe.

Look, I mean no harm. I certainly mean no disrespect. That was just my attitude and my point of view. We have our limits. We also have our breaking points. Few days in the sun free from sports and fantasy sports does a body, mind and soul good!

Over the last month I’ve seen how great social media is. I’ve also seen how toxic it is! I’d like to think we all choose our own path. Take some time to rest and recharge. Free yourself from it all. I get it, we all have that fear of being forgotten or passed over. Trust me, if you’re serious about what you do and good at what you do you will not be forgotten. You will not be passed over.

Good content will always speak for itself!

I have a notebook filled with my thoughts and ideas. Every page is filled with rankings, projections, jokes, quotes and roster advice. Of everything written in my notebook my Fantasy Football Buy & Sell for each NFL team excited me the most!

2020 Fantasy Football SLEEPERS

2020 Fantasy Football Sleepers
4/16/20
Chris Robin https://twitter.com/DetroitBeastie

The NFL season is still far away but what else are we supposed to do? I love reading rankings and projections but I need more! Mock drafts are cool. So are rookie mock drafts. I need more! What about fantasy football mock drafts? How many of those do you normally do? What’s an outrageous number before people say your obsessed?

I still need more. Breakouts and sleepers? Does that move the needle? Now we’re talking right? I’ll be honest breakouts are my favorite! So are bold predictions! For the sake of what I’m trying to do now lets focus on sleepers!

Missed the breakout article? Check it out here! https://www.dfscheatsheet.com/2020-massive-fantasy-football-breakouts/nfl/04/

My idea of a sleeper is a fantasy football player under the radar, limited buzz with a low ADP. You can even take it a step further and look at an early season waiver wire add as a sleeper! Fantasy football is a game of skill mixed with a ton of luck!

Darwin Thompson RB/WR-Kansas City Chiefs

Kansas City Chiefs RB Darwin Thompson

Everybody was licking their chops last season when LeSean McCoy was made inactive and KC trusted Darwin as their RB2 for the postseason. There were bumps in the road for Thompson in 2019 but rightfully so. Still cheap with limited buzz I’d pencil him in as a great late round selection.

Justin Jackson RB-Los Angeles Chargers

Los Angeles Chargers RB Justin Jackson

Melvin Gordon III is a goner! He’s in Denver now! That leaves Ekler and Justin Jackson as their RB’s. I do recall a small burst in Jackson’s value last season. It never came to fruition, 2020 it will! People forget what a stud bell cow back he was at Northwestern. There is next to nothing in terms of carries on his resume. Only 25 Justin has a lot to give! I’m excited to see what the Chargers do in 2020 in terms of splitting the RB workload.

Ronald Jones RB-Tampa Bay Buccaneers

Tampa Bay Buccaneers RB Ronald Jones

This one might be shocking but I find Jones very interesting this season! Peyton Barber has moved on to Washington and TB has brought in TB at QB! I’m counting on a lot of swing routes and a ton of red-zone work for Ronald in 2020. He finished 2019 as RB25 yet he’s fallen to RB37 in the mock draft research I’ve done. I’m shocked and I may be the only one banging the Ron Jones dump in 2020!

Jamaal Williams RB-Green Bay Packers

Green Bay Packers RB Jamal Williams

At the start of the 2019 season is it safe to say we didn’t know what was what at the RB situation was in GB? Well it’s now 2020 and Aaron Jones is the RB1 there! So what’s with the J-Will sleeper talk? We all know he’s one of the more popular handcuffs but I believe in 2020 he creates his own value. Jones is the better pounding RB while Williams is better suited as a PPR back.

Nyheim Hines RB-Indianapolis Colts

Indianapolis Colts RB Nyheim Hines

You may think of Hines as a stretch here. Let me tell you why he needs to be on your radar in 2020. Nyheim is more of an op in PPR formats having caught 44 balls on only 58 targets. Marlon Mack is the RB1 in Indy, for now. With the addition of Phil Rivers expect Hines to get more work in 2020. Lets be honest, Mack was often injured in 2019 so what’s the harm in adding Nyheim late in your draft?

Derrius Guice RB-Washington Redskins

Washington Redskins RB Derrius Guice

I often have to set aside my personal opinions from my fantasy opinions. There is a difference! It might be reckless to say I want nothing to do with Guice but that’s not fair to you as a fantasy football fan. Let’s get back on track here. Let’s also hope Guice is fully healthy and can stay healthy in 2020. Ron Rivera is the head coach in Washington now and if you look at his track record running backs have done well under his coaching regimes. Chris Thompson has gone to TB and Adrian Peterson is in the twilight of his NFL career. Everything is set up for Guice to grab a hold of this RB1 job. To me, jury is still out. Don’t let my personal skepticism get in the way of your decision here.

Breshad Perriman WR-New York Jets

New York Jets WR Breshad Perriman

This one is very interesting to me! Perriman was thrust into the limelight late last season in Tampa. Then he spun that success to the tune of a one year 6.5 million dollar contract with the Jets. I don’t see the Jets offense lighting the word on fire but there is void left to fill by Robby Anderson heading to Carolina. 52 receptions, 779 yards and 5 TD’s are up for grabs in New York this season! Perriman is calling dibs on those numbers!

Diontae Johnson WR-Pittsburgh Steelers

Pittsburgh Steelers WR Diontae Johnson

Dionate saw 90 targets in 2019 catching 57 of them. Upon further inspections Johnson had the best season out of the Steelers WR’s. Pittsburgh was hammered with injuries in last season. Next man up is a real thing! Dionate made the most of his opportunities. Look for Diontae to take the next step in 2020 with a fully healthy offense around him! Be mindful of his ADP he’s already creating quite the, “sleeper” buzz.

John Ross WR-Cincinnati Bengals

Cincinnati Bengals WR John Ross

I’ve said it a few times already but Cincinnati should have a better situation going on at QB in 2020. Ross came out hot last season with two 100-yard games and 3 TD’s. He’s a legit deep threat and a rookie QB’s best friend! His time is now! – John Cena

Corey Davis WR-Tennessee Titans

Tennessee Titans WR Corey Davis

There are a ton of stats and what-if scenarios here with Corey. A.J. Brown was the guy to break-out in Tennessee last season. Davis is a fantastic WR2 for your fantasy team. A healthy competition between the two in OTA’s and preseason is just what the doctor is ordering here! If you made a list started with A.J. and Davis there is no real competition after that! Even more so, this offense can sustain two legit WR’s! We all know King Henry comes first but be on the look out for Davis in 2020!

Anthony Miller WR-Chicago Bears

Chicago Bears WR Anthony Miller

Miller is more of a post-hype sleeper but sleeper none-the-less. We all know Allen Robinson is the WR1 in Chicago but really, what else do the Bears have? Miller possesses a bevy of raw skills and will put it all together in 2020. Anthony is being drafted more as a depth receiver, which is fitting, just know he can give your team much more in 2020!

Hunter Renfrow WR-Las Vegas Raiders

Las Vegas Raiders WR Hunter Renfrow

Everyone else is talking about him! Why not me? At a certain point in 2019 Hunter was seeing 5.5 targets a game. Yet in the last two games of the season he saw 18 total targets. Most people look at Oakland as a cesspool but they are actually a fantasy friendly offense. Did you know the Raiders averaged 363 yards a game in 2019? I don’t know about you but I want a piece of that!

Preston Williams WR-Miami Dolphins

Miami Dolphins WR Preston Williams

I feel like no one paid attention to all the tips and positive content on Preston last season. He’s only 23 years old and is a massive target. A 6’5 kid who is lean at 218lbs should make you rosters happy in 2020. Make no mistake, Preston and Parker will be the 1-2 punch Miami envisioned them to be from the start. Williams saw 60 targets in 8 games and I’m already sold on MIA drafting a QB with their 5th overall pick next week. I’m excited about Preston! I suggest you jump on board!

James Washington WR-Pittsburgh Steelers

Pittsburgh Steelers WR James Washington

Speaking of combos lets take it a step further and mention a trio! Washington, Johnson and Juju! You don’t know this but there was a 2-3 minute silence after that first sentence on my end. I was contemplating a funny law firm type joke with these three kids. Anyways, the biggest issue with the Pittsburgh last season was consistency. James is a speed demon and due to the horrible QB play last season he’s being drafted in the WR60 range. I find that utterly shocking and expect a full return and then some on your draft day value!
