QB: BEST BANG FOR YOUR BUCK
Joe Flacco- Jets: $5,900 vs. Bengals
Matthew Stafford- Rams: $6,700 at Cardinals
Tua Tagovailoa- Dolphins: $6,500 vs. Bills
Jalen Hurts- Eagles: $6,900 at Commanders
Kirk Cousins- Vikings: $6,500 vs. Lions
Joe Burrow- Bengals: $6,600 at Jets
Jared Goff- Lions: $6,400 at Vikings
Derek Carr- Raiders: $6,400 at Titans
Carson Wentz- Commanders: $6,400 vs. Eagles
Trevor Lawrence- Jaguars: $6,400 at Chargers
Your eyes do not deceive you–yes, that is Joe Flacco atop the list at the QB position. Joe Flacco is playing well, and the passing volume for the New York Jets suggests this will remain a pass-first offense. At $5,900–Joe Flacco is a steal. Matthew Stafford, at $6,700, is the safest play on the board. The Rams’ offense will obliterate a non-existent Cardinals defense. The fantasy manager may be hesitant to play Tua Tagovailoa following a career performance. The Bills’ defense can certainly dominate, but so can their offense. If the Phins are trailing, Tua will have to throw the ball a ton once more.
RB: BEST BANG FOR YOUR BUCK
Dameon Pierce- Texans: $4,800 at Bears
Leonard Fournette- Buccaneers: $5,500 vs. Packers
Miles Sanders- Eagles: $5,500 at Commanders
Antonio Gibson- Commanders: $5,700 vs. Eagles
James Robinson- Jaguars: $5,600 at Chargers
Josh Jacobs- Raiders: $5,800 at Titans
David Montgomery- Bears: $5,700 vs. Texans
Derrick Henry- Titans: $6,100 vs. Raiders
Alvin Kamara- Saints: $6,100 at Panthers
Dalvin Cook- Vikings: $6,200 vs. Lions
Dameon Pierce is the ‘free square’ this week and my favorite call, regardless of position. If you have been reading the tea leaves coming out of Houston, they want to make Pierce their primary ball carrier. Pierce should be leaned on relentlessly against the Bears on Sunday. Leonard Fournette at $5,500 feels like a steal. The Buccaneers will be down several pass-catchers and lean on their veteran back for offensive stability. Miles Sanders remains the leader of the Eagles’ RB depth chart. Sanders has looked explosive in the early going and will continue the trend against the Commanders on Sunday.
WR: BEST BANG FOR YOUR BUCK
Chris Olave- Saints: $4,500 at Panthers
Drake London- Falcons: $5,200 at Seahawks
DeVonta Smith- Eagles: $4,900 at Commanders
Garrett Wilson- Jets: $4,800 vs. Bengals
Curtis Samuel- Commanders: $5,100 vs. Eagles
Jahan Dotson- Commanders: $4,800 vs. Eagles
Jaylen Waddle- Dolphins: $6,000 vs. Bills
Gabe Davis- Bills: $5,800 at Dolphins
D.J. Moore- Panthers: $5,600 vs. Saints
Christian Kirk- Jaguars: $5,800 at Chargers
Chris Olave had 334 air yards on Sunday. Yes, you read that correctly. Let that number sink in for a second. If some of these big plays down the field begin to connect, Chris Olave will go off! Drake London is emerging as a top NFL WR. The market has not caught up to his quick advancement. DeVonta Smith re-emerged as a primary option in the Eagles’ passing game on Monday Night Football. Smith is underpriced at $4,900.
TE: BEST BANG FOR YOUR BUCK
Darren Waller- Raiders: $5,400 at Titans
Mark Andrews- Ravens: $5,800 at Patriots
Kyle Pitts- Falcons: $5,300 at Seahawks
Tyler Higbee- Rams: $4,700 at Cardinals
Gerald Everett- Chargers: $4,700 vs. Jaguars
Given his upside, Darren Waller is a bargain at only $5,400. Mark Andrews remains the alpha in the Ravens’ passing attack. Kyle Pitts has to be more involved in the Falcons’ passing game moving forward.
