PLAYER PICKS FOR WEEK 11 Tournament Style
I fear the end is near. Today, I could not access FanDuel from my Verizon 4G network. I can only use FanDuel using WiFi so that they can verify that I’m not in a restricted state. Let’s just enjoy what little time left we have together.
Quick Tip #1 -Derek Carr – QB – Raiders – ($7700) – He’s consistently put up points over the last four weeks including three straight 300 yard performances. Last week vs. a tough Vikings D he hung in there and still posted solid stats to the tune of 29-43-302 with two TDs. The Lions used up all of their magic last week vs. Aaron Rogers. They come back to reality and Carr is a good bet in fantasy.
Quick Tip #2 – Charcandrick West – RB – Chiefs ($7100) – He is red hot, the chiefs are red hot, and the Chargers are terrible against the run. West is a must own for your lineups this week at a very affordable $7100. Last week he did it all vs. a solid Broncos Defense as he rushed for 69 yards and a TD while catching three passes for 92 yards and a TD. The Chiefs gave him the ball early and often and will do the same this week.
Quick Tip #3 Danny Amendola – WR – Patriots ($6100)
You won’t be the only one thinking that he steps in and does what Edelman does. The price is just too good for someone who instantly became Brady’s go to guy last week vs. the Giants. His 10 receptions for 79 yards was just a TD away from a very good week. I think he gets that TD this week for a solid 20 FanDuel points or so. All for $6100.
Quick Tip #4 – Chris Ivory – RB – Jets ($7200)
With Ryan Fitzpatrick returning after surgery to his non-throwing hand expect the Jets to rely even more heavily on Ivory this week. While the Texans D looked improved on Monday night I don’t expect them to put up back to back good weeks especially on a short week. Ivory racked up 99 yards on 18 carries last Thursday night and the extra rest will serve him well this Sunday.
Quick Tip #5 – Julio Jones – WR – Falcons ($9100)
The Falcons offense has been off for awhile now but the targets and reception numbers for Julio have been great the last two weeks. 10-137 last week and 12-162 the week before that. The Falcons offense will look to get back on track this week vs. a vulnerable Colts defense. With many top WRs on a bye this week it’s a good time to take the best WR option. I think his price will scare away a lot of people this week and that only adds to his value for your lineups.
Below are 5 long shots that have a chance to hit this week along with a small blurb about each one and their Fanduel price. Adding any one of these guys is like adding a long shot into horse racing exacta or trifecta.
Bears D – $4200 – They have hung in there recently and the Bears actually have a meaningful game this week at home vs. the Broncos. I’m betting on a Broncos team minus Peyton to be out of sync and sloppy. Although they were out of sync and sloppy with Peyton. Either way, this long shot could pay you dividends this week.
Nelson Agholor – WR – $5100 – This guy again. Look, he’s a rookie and it’s been a rocky road. Remember, he did have a great preseason with Mark Sanchez throwing to him. Sanchez could start this week and if he does I’m going to use Nelson in one lineup.
Charles Johnson- WR – Vikings $4900- There is no statistical data to back any suggestion to play this guy this week other than the fact that he got hot at the end of last year. Just a hunch this week if Aaron Rogers finds it and gets hot the Viking will be forced to throw.
Jimmy Graham – TE -$5800 – Oh, how the mighty have fallen. This price is dirt cheap and the Seahawks coordinator will probably make sure he catches a TD this week so he doesn’t go insane.
Case Keenum – QB – $4800 – A $4800 starting QB is unheard of in FanDuel. The Ravens pass defense isn’t great, maybe he throws a screen to Gurley that he breaks for a long TD, and wouldn’t you know it he beat the Ravens as a starter last year for Houston. I’m going to put him in one lineup just so I can say I started a $4800 QB.
