Rodgers is Close to Being a Must-Play this Week
Let’s deal ‘em up!
(All prices from DraftKings)
Well hello there Mr. Rodgers. No, not your childhood cardigan-wearing TV friend. Good ol’ Aaron Rodgers sitting there at $8,100 – tied for sixth most expensive with Matt Ryan. Meanwhile, Rodgers is second only to Peyton Manning in PPG. Andy Dalton is on fire, but I’m not a fan of spending $7,300 on him in a short week and on the road against Miami. There aren’t many upside/low-priced plays this week with so many byes and poor matchups for many of the cheaper options. You’re going to have to spend money at QB this week. Rodgers is the best call in my opinion, but Philip Rivers is another attractive play against the Redskins. He’s $400 more than Rodgers though. The Top Three (Drew Brees, Tony Romo and Cam Newton) are all great plays, but all three are also $9,200 or more.
Jamaal Charles has been a stud, but his price likely now prevents you from using him. That $9,800 price is a LOT to pay at RB. LeSean McCoy’s worst games rushing were against the Giants, so look for him to bounce back against the Raiders. The Bears run defense has been their weak point, which makes Eddie Lacy at $6,600 a solid pick. As long as Darren McFadden is healthy, he has plenty of upside, which makes his $6,200 price and matchup with Philly great for your team. Like Rivers, Danny Woodhead should abuse the Redskins defense, and he is still underpriced given his performance, as Woodhead is still just $5,600. Zac Stacy would have been a great play again, but unless he comes out clean from that ankle injury, even his $3,900 price could be too risky.
We're back tomorrow with some early-week receiver and tight end options.
