Carr – He’s put up some big numbers in his career against KC. In 2 games last year he completed over 73% of his passes, and has thrown 7 total td’s in the last 4 against KC. I tend to play Carr more at home where he has a combined 6 td’s 700+ passing yards and 0 int’s against KC. While everyone else will be on the KC side, Oakland will stick in the game with Carr leading the way.
Jackson – I spoke about this on the podcast, but Jackson ran the ball only 3 teams last week. So, I can guarantee those designed runs that Greg Roman has drawn up will be used today. I still don’t think the receiving core for Baltimore is great, aside of Hollywood so Jackson will need his legs this week.
Dak – Dallas arguably has a top 3 receiving core with Gallup, Cooper and Cobb. All 3 showed a lot of separation last week, and their ability to get open. I actually think Washington stays in this game, which will help Dak and these receivers put up some big numbers. In his career Dak has never thrown an interception against Washington, while throwing 6 td’s.
Goff – I was high on Goff last week, and really put up crap numbers. Goff did continue his connection with Kupp out of the slot, which again does set up well against PJ Williams. At home last year Goff threw just 3 int’s compared to his 22 td’s.
Other with upside
Barkley/Kamara – 1A And 1B for me this week. Any time the Giants will be in a close game I’m playing Barkley. They suck but as long as they can keep it close Barkley will get as many touches as he can handle. We saw what CMC did last week to this Rams team, expect the same from Kamara.
Cook – He just looks so healthy and playing with a chip on his shoulder. Minnesota has flipped their playbook to a run first team again and challenging offenses to beat their D.
Michel – I don’t think New England will throw a ton in this game. Michel was blanketed last week, but with how bad this Dolphins D is he should pop for over 100 yards. Michel also has a bit off narrative as well this week playing high school at American Heritage in Plantation roughly 20 minutes from Dolphins stadium. We saw it last week with Jackson, expect it this week with Sony.
Jacobs – Will be very popular this week with his price and how well he played last week. If I’m playing Carr I’m not playing Jacobs. He’s not involved much in their passing game, but he will get a ton of touches on the ground.
Gurley – at 7k on FanDuel I can get behind him this week. He had a slow start last week, but if you watched the end of the game he looked like early 2018 Gurley.
Other with upside
Carson – Love
Thompson – More of a DK play
Juju – Bounce back week for him. I said on the podcast that this game will be the one to shoot out. Seattle’s secondary is not good AT ALL and we’ll see Ben look to Juju early and often. He does have a toe issue but he practiced this week. Just keep an eye and make sure he doesn’t do anything to it in pregame.
Boyd – I’m with Renner on this one that last week wasn’t a fluke. Boyd will get heavy targets with AJ out and that’ll continue this week. He’s still priced low, and we always love Dalton at home right?
Williams – Carr’s #1 guy is going to light up this KC defense. One of the best guys to stretch the field, Williams caught 6 balls for over 100 yards and a score last week. I would be surprised if he didn’t see double digit targets.
Gallup – Love this kid. He looked ridiculously explosive last week, and very much in sync with Dak.
Amendola – will continue to get a ton of targets until someone takes his head off like every year.
Kelce/Kittle – Do I even need analysis here?
Engram – little bit tougher this week for him with Micah Hyde probably dropping down to cover him. Should still get in the box.
Walker – the forgotten tight end. Still cheap and scored twice last week. Nice set up against Indy.
