QB: BEST BANG FOR YOUR BUCK
Geno Smith- Seahawks: $6,300 vs. Cardinals
Kirk Cousins- Vikings: $6,400 at Dolphins
Tom Brady- Buccaneers: $6,500 at Steelers
Matthew Stafford- Rams: $6,500 vs. Panthers
Kyler Murray- Cardinals: $6,900 at Seahawks
Josh Allen- Bills: $7,500 vs. Chiefs
Lamar Jackson- Ravens: $7,400 at Giants
Patrick Mahomes- Chiefs: $7,300 vs. Bills
Joe Burrow- Bengals: $6,600 at Saints
Trevor Lawrence- Jaguars: $6,200 at Colts
Geno Smith and the prolific Seahawks’ offense has to rank up there with one of the most surprising developments of 2022. Geno Smith continues to play incredibly well for Seattle. In what should be a shoot-out against Arizona, Geno Smith is once again in play. Minnesota/Miami has shoot-out potential, especially if Tua Tagovailoa clears the concussion protocol. Kirk Cousins and the Vikings’ offense are heating up. I am back on Brady again this week. You know the Buccaneers’ offense is on the verge of a ceiling performance, and this week they play a Steelers defense that stood no chance against Josh Allen.
RB: BEST BANG FOR YOUR BUCK
Rhamondre Stevenson- Patriots: $5,600 at Browns
Kenneth Walker III- Seahawks: $5,000 vs. Cardinals
Breece Hall- Jets: $5,300 at Packers
J.K. Dobbins- Ravens: $5,200 at Giants
Raheem Mostert- Dolphins: $5,100 vs. Vikings
Saquon Barkley- Giants: $6,400 vs. Ravens
Jeff Wilson Jr.- 49ers: $5,800 at Falcons
Leonard Fournette- Buccaneers: $6,100 at Steelers
Eno Benjamin- Cardinals: $4,400 at Seahawks
Travis Etienne- Jaguars: $4,900 at Colts
If Damien Harris sits this one with an injured hamstring, how can you not be on Rhamondre Stevenson? Stevenson looked fantastic last week against Detroit, and with the backfield all to himself, he has top-ten RB upside. Kenneth Walker III inherits the full workload left behind by Rashaad Penny–there will be plenty of points scored in the Seattle/Arizona game. Breece Hall is on the verge of a ceiling performance. Last week he was three yards shy of 100 yards rushing AND 100 yards receiving. Once the TDs go his way, there is no turning back!
WR: BEST BANG FOR YOUR BUCK
Tyler Lockett- Seahawks: $5,700 vs. Cardinals
Chris Godwin- Buccaneers: $5,900 at Steelers
Jaylen Waddle- Dolphins: $6,000 vs. Vikings
Gabriel Davis- Panthers: $6,000 at Chiefs
Marquise Brown- Cardinals: $6,400 at Seahawks
Michael Pittman Jr.- Colts: $6,200 vs. Jaguars
D.J. Moore- Panthers: $5,300 at Rams
Devin Duvernay- Ravens: $4,800 at Giants
George Pickens- Steelers: $4,600 vs. Buccaneers
Marquez Valdes-Scantling- Chiefs: $4,500 vs. Bills
Did we mention that we expect plenty of points in Seattle this Sunday? The Cardinals have done a great job of taking away a team’s #1 option (in this case, D.K. Metcalf)–Tyler Lockett will be in line for yet another terrific fantasy outing. Chris Godwin disappointed fantasy managers this past weekend. Godwin came up JUST short of scoring a TD. Had he found the end zone, we wouldn’t be having this conversation. Take advantage of a depreciated market on Chris Godwin. Jaylen Waddle has been limited as of late with an ankle injury. Another week removed from the injury, I expect we get the explosive playmaker that opened the season.
TE: BEST BANG FOR YOUR BUCK
Taysom Hill- Saints: $4,300 vs. Bengals
George Kittle- 49ers: $5,000 at Falcons
Zach Ertz- Cardinals: $4,900 at Seahawks
Mark Andrews- Ravens: $5,900 at Giants
Travis Kelce- Chiefs: $6,400 vs. Bills
I am not advocating chasing the points with Taysom Hill. I also have to recognize that at $4,300, Taysom Hill is a value play. George Kittle is on the verge of a fantasy explosion. Atlanta could provide the talented TE with that opportunity. Zach Ertz has been rock-solid for the Cardinals’ offense–expect that trend to continue this week in Seattle.
