Matthew Stafford ($9,200) leads the NFL in pass attempts. Dallas leads the league in fantasy points allowed to QB’s. I think that’s a pretty good combination even though Detroit is favored in this matchup.
Knowshon Moreno ($7,700) has received 49 carries and 21 targets the last three games and he’s still a Bronco. Oh, and Washington is giving up the 4th most fantasy points to RB’s.
Le’Veon Bell ($7,000) is still a relatively good value and is a good bet for at least 20 touches against the Raiders.
Kris Durham ($4,600) has received 29 targets the last three games, gets the Cowboys and is super cheap. Sign me up.
Jarrett Boykin ($6,300) has an excellent matchup and he’s relatively inexpensive. The risk is that the Packers will probably start the blowout early and take the air out of the ball with Eddie Lacy, with fewer passes from Aaron Rodgers.
Detroit’s secondary has issues and Dez Bryant ($8,800) will visit Ford Field this weekend.
Jordan Reed ($5,400) broke out in Week 7, is relatively cheap and I’m betting that he’s not a flash in the pan. Washington will travel to Mile High, so you know the Redskins will be playing catch-up and RG3 will be forced to throw the rock quite a bit. Reed caught all nine of his targets against the Bears.
Caleb Sturgis is simply a $5,000 kicker. Nothing more. I don’t have the funds left to spend heavy on a position that’s mostly a crapshoot anyway.
Seattle ($6,000) is pricey, but worth it when they are facing a backup (Kellen Clemens).
Quarterback – Thaddeus Lewis ($5,500) is far from a sure thing this week, but he’s a weapon on the ground and will be forced to throw a lot as the Bills try to play catch-up and he could put up numbers in garbage time. Ben Roethlisberger’s price is down ($7,100) after facing the Jets and the Ravens in back to back weeks. Big Ben travels to Oakland on Sunday.
