I'm coming off a couple long shifts at the day job, so this is my abbreviated list of picks for the week, besides QB which I already covered.
As most knowledable people have deduced, the Ravens-Jaguars game appears to be very juicy for tournament plays. I like both Bortles and Flacco for various reasons. I don't think either team runs well which will mean a lot of throwing. Yay.
As far as stacks, I think the chalky stack is Bortles / Allen Robinson here. Hurns is also in play, but he has been more TD dependent than ARob.
Looking for that sleeper pick? Chris Givens might have a chance to do something tomorrow. Kamar Aiken just kind of sucks and Flacco still throws a great deep ball. If Givens is ever going to do anything in his life, all signs point to this being now or never.
Now let's run through WR. I like DeAndre Hopkins always. I like Odell Beckham a little less against a Patriots scheme, but he's great at home. AJ Green is probably going to see a decent usage, but I have a feeling we see more ground attack from the Bengals.
Stefon Diggs is intriguing against Oakland. Oakland is getting TJ Carrie and Nate Allen back, but DJ Hayden is still terrible, and Diggs will do well if matched up with him. Bridgewater should look for Diggs all day.
For RBs, I like DeMarco Murray, Darren McFadden, Todd Gurley, and James Starks. I really want to play Gio Bernard but I just can't bring myself to do it. Maybe I will. It's a crap shoot. I'm going to be really mad if Mark Ingram explodes this week after burning me twice in a row.
For TEs, I was liking Gary Barnidge but if Manziel is indeed starting that's a no go for me on the Bardyard Dog. I'll take Jordan Reed versus a crappy Saints secondary for 4600, Alex. Delanie Walker and Greg Olsen might be safe cash picks. Crockett Gillmore has a shot at a momentary resurgance, but I don't see myself going there.
For Defense, it looks like a good week to pay up for one of Denver or St Louis, but I also like the reasonably priced Eagles vs the Dolphins. I smell a DST TD from Philly in that one.
That's all for now. Enjoy the game as I am about to crash.
