VJax Has Turned Into a Weekly Game Stud
Let’s deal ‘em up!
(All prices from DraftKings)
In case you missed it, Mike Glennon targeted Vincent Jackson a ridiculous 22 times in Week 7. VJax is now averaging 15.6 per game and tied as the fourth highest scoring WR at 20.6 PPG. Lock him in at $7,000, which is a reasonable price given his production. Antonio Brown and DeSean Jackson are both attractive options, priced at $6,800 and $6,700 given their matchups. Pierre Garcon should provide high most value this season against the Broncos and is just $6,200, while Anquan Boldin should do the same facing the Jaguars. Boldin is just $5,200. If James Jones misses this week as well, Jarrett Boykin is a high reward/risk play again at just $4,500. I'm not sold on Harry Douglas with his price now $5,400 and a matchup with Patrick Peterson on the table.
Well, the two obvious names are Jimmy Graham and Rob Gronkowski, and the costs show that. You can save big money though by looking to Julius Thomas. Peyton Manning still looks his way plenty, but even with the added risk of being left out now and then, Thomas' value is great given his $5,500 price and matchup with the Redskins. The word is out on Jordan Reed, but his price is still fairly low at $4,300. Between Thomas and Reed, I might just be more tempted by Reed.
