Sunday 23rd Apr 2017

How many points can the Patriots score in Week 6? With the “deflate gate” factor in play, the sky appears to be the limit. I am having a difficult time constructing a DFS lineup for the week without including all four of the Patriots primary scoring threats.

Can you construct a competitive lineup paying for Brady, Lewis, Edelman and Gronkowski?

Not only was I able to construct what appears to be a decent lineup, but I have extra money left to try and spend. The biggest problem I had with roster construction is that the guys priced in the mid-range are very limited. Does it make sense to pay $500 more for Chris Ivory over Giovani Bernard? Is it worth $800 to go up to Anquan Boldin over Jamison Crowder? Boldin has three games with under eight points while Crowder has been a three-game star.

I am going to spend the rest of the week searching for the best combination of players to pair with the four Patriots and then sit tight until Sunday night and watch the Patriots roll up the points.

QUARTERBACK
Tom Brady NE 8100 Brady has been playing pinball so far. Expensive but worth it.
Aaron Rodgers GB 7700 Two "blah" games after the five-TD game. Blowout coming up this week.
Eli Manning NYG 6800 Very good in past four after early clunker.
Carson Palmer Ari 6600 Been on fire so far and still underpriced.
Philip Rivers SD 6300 Could get a ton of garbage time passing points.
Sam Bradford Phi 6000 Better in the past two, but a little scary to start.
Joe Flacco Bal 5900 SF is poor vs. pass. Might be limited in run game with Forsett injured.
Andy Dalton Cin 5700 Highest scoring QB through five games. You could never tell from the price.
Ryan Tannehill Mia 5700 A hunch that they are amped up for their new coach.
RUNNING BACK
Le'Veon Bell Pit 8500 Three solid high-volume games - no price change from last week.
Adrian Peterson Min 7600 Vikings are feeding him the rock.
Matt Forte Chi 7100 Averaging 24 touches per game.
Dion Lewis NE 5800 Steep price increase but is seeing touches to warrant the price (and more).
Chris Ivory NYJ 5100 Three weeks off should be ample recovery time.
Danny Woodhead SD 4700 Always a receiving threat, but Gordon cut the volume down last week.
Giovani Bernard Cin 4600 Five straight weeks with plenty of touches…with a price drop this week.
Duke Johnson Jr. Cle 4500 15 touches (6 receptions) are plenty to support the price. Another surprise drop.
Lamar Miller Mia 4300 Can a bum off a bye with a new coach live up to expectations? Great price.
Charcandrick West KC 4000 Intrigued by price and the unknown.
Theo Riddick Det 3300 Coming off a 10-catch game, only sees a 300 price increase.
Chris Thompson Was 3300 Heavy in passing game. Does not take much to earn 3x price.
WIDE RECEIVER
DeAndre Hopkins Hou 7700 The price still does not reflect his production through five games.
Julian Edelman NE 7600 Price is getting steep, but he produces every week for a team on a mission.
Emmanuel Sanders Den 7500 Fits well with Manning's lack of arm strength.
Brandon Marshall NYJ 7100 Earned 3x his price every week.
Larry Fitzgerald Ari 7000 Back to earth in last two after two blow-ups.
Jeremy Maclin KC 6500 27 catches in past three games.
Jarvis Landry Mia 6200 Solid PPR guy - chance for a spark with new coach.
Allen Robinson Jax 5900 Price keeps creeping up. Still a good play at this price.
James Jones GB 5800 All he does is score touchdowns - every week.
Pierre Garcon Was 5100 Expected more last week. Slight price drop makes him more attractive.
Allen Hurns Jax 5000 Double-digit points every game. Excellent points/dollars ratio even with jump.
Kamar Aiken Bal 4300 Big price increase but still cheap with Smith out.
Marquess Wilson Chi 4000 Nice numbers with Bears primary guys out. Underpriced with Jeffery out.
Jamison Crowder Was 3600 6-7-8 catches in the past three weeks. Could easily 6x his price.
Marvin Jones Cin 3500 Inconsistent scoring threat.
DeVante Parker Mia 3000 A definite GPP reach. Limited snaps so far. Could change with new coach.
TIGHT END
Rob Gronkowski NE 7600 Tough to use at this price, but scary to bench. All other options inconsistent.
Greg Olsen Car 5500 Best receiver on Carolina.
Travis Kelce KC 5000 Three games under ten points.
Tyler Eifert Cin 4900 Inconsistency is the takeaway from evaluating tight ends.
Martellus Bennett Chi 4800 Big disappointment last week.
Antonio Gates SD 4600 Came up big on Monday. Just ask the millionaire winner.
Gary Barnidge Cle 4400 Great with McCown. Bad with Manziel. Still great value.
Charles Clay Buf 4300 Price increase for no reason.
Kyle Rudolph Min 3000 High risk at a bottom basement price.
DEFENSE
Seahawks Sea 3800 Shut down Cam and you shut down the Panthers.
Broncos Den 3700 Top scoring defense through five weeks.
Cardinals Ari 3600 Four touchdowns and a safety so far. Good play vs. Vick.
Packers GB 3200 Chargers o-line is a mess.
Patriots NE 3100 Expecting Colts turnovers when Pats take a big early lead.
Jets NYJ 3100 Jets should be able to pile up points on Redskins.
MY CURRENT LINEUP
Tom Brady QB NE 8100
Giovani Bernard RB Cin 4600
Dion Lewis RB NE 5800
Jamison Crowder WR Was 3600
Kamar Aiken WR Bal 4300
Julian Edelman WR NE 7600
Duke Johnson Jr. FL Cle 4500
Rob Gronkowski TE NE 7600
Jets DST NYJ 3100
$49,200 (looking for a way to spend some of the extra $800)
