Michael Vick Returns to Our Week 4 Lineup
Somehow, we (well, at least I know I did) overcame that junk from Eli Manning and Dwayne Bowe last week. But, let’s try not to cut it so close this time…
Let’s deal ‘em up!
Michael Vick, PHI – Back to the well. I used Vick in Weeks 1 and 2, and it worked out great. Last week, his price jumped on DraftKings, but now it’s back down to $7,900. Yes, the Broncos are the superior team, but they’re the only team that runs plays nearly as much as the Eagles. That means even more time for Vick and that offense to be on the field putting up points, in what should be a shootout.
Jamaal Charles, KC; Darren McFadden, OAK – Charles was a great play last week, and I like him just as much this week. After all, has the Giants defense even reported for a game yet? The Chiefs are at home, the Giants can’t stop anyone, this is a PPR format and Charles is averaging 24.5 PPG. No further explanation needed. As for DMC, he will cost you just $6,000, and if there is a defense worse than the Giants – or anyone – it’s the Redskins. With Matt Flynn at QB, the Raiders will likely run even more, and that means DMC will see a heavy workload against a porous defense. I could understand more hesitation at a higher price, but not at just 6K.
Brian Hartline, MIA; Ryan Broyles, DET – By now, you know I like to save money at WR, as it’s rather volatile week to week. Did you know that Hartline, not Mike Wallace, is the most-targeted Dolphins WR? Yep. That is why he is averaging 18.9 PPG in a PPR scoring. At just $5,400 and with a matchup against the Saints, Hartline presents a great value with plenty of upside in Week 4. As for Broyles, you hate to see the injury to Nate Burleson, but this presents major opportunity. Broyles has the talent; he just needs to stay healthy. If there is one area the Bears defense is “weak” at, it’s versus the pass, and the Lions love to pass. Broyles is a mere $3,600 and a lock for anyone trying to plug in a RB at flex, just like…
DeMarco Murray, DAL – That’s what we’re doing here. A stud RB at flex. Murray is healthy and rolling, and the Chargers are in that same group as the Redskins for worst defenses in the league. Murray is averaging 21.7 PPG, costs $7,200 and should abuse the Chargers defense this week.
Julius Thomas, DEN – Do you need to be told why? This is the flip side of the Broncos and Eagles matchup, and somehow, Peyton Manning continues to share the love with everyone. Thomas has been dominant, averaging the third most PPG for TEs, just behind Jimmy Graham and Jordan Cameron. Oh, and he costs $1,000 less than Cameron still, and faces those Eagles. The Eagles!
Rob Bironas, TEN; Jets D – Always going to spend low here to make sure we gets studs throughout the lineup. Bironas has been rather solid and is a cheap option. While the Jets defense returns this week, as they’ve been a good grab too and should hold the Titans in check. At $3,100 and $3,400, we’re able to grab plenty of big names this week, as you saw.
