QB: BEST BANG FOR YOUR BUCK
Derek Carr- Raiders: $6,700 vs. Cardinals
Trey Lance- 49ers: $6,600 vs. Seahawks
Matt Ryan- Colts: $6,600 at Jaguars
Matthew Stafford- Rams: $7,100 vs. Falcons
Joe Burrow- Bengals: $7,000 at Cowboys
Carson Wentz- Commanders: $6,800 at Lions
Jared Goff- Lions: $6,400 vs. Commanders
Russell Wilson- Broncos: $7,200 vs. Texans
Lamar Jackson- Ravens: $7,400 vs. Dolphins
Kyler Murray- Cardinals: $7,500 at Raiders
Derek Carr gets a woeful Cardinals defense limping in from being scorched by Patrick Mahomes and the Chiefs. The Raiders are traditionally better at home–I love Carr in this spot. An opportunity buy-low opportunity on Trey Lance. Take last week’s monsoon game and throw it out. Seattle’s defense was strong on Monday night, but we know they are a different team on the road. Matt Ryan looked awful last week. No one will be on him this week. The Jaguars’ defense was just sliced and diced by Carson Wentz. Do you mean to tell me that Matt Ryan can’t do the same?
RB: BEST BANG FOR YOUR BUCK
Saquon Barkley- Giants: $6,600 vs. Panthers
Nick Chubb- Browns: $6,400 vs. Jets
D’Andre Swift- Lions: $6,200 vs. Commanders
Javonte Williams- Broncos: $6,300 vs. Texans
Christian McCaffrey- Panthers: $7,100 at Giants
James Conner- Cardinals: $6,200 at Raiders
Kareem Hunt- Browns: $5,400 vs. Jets
Darrell Henderson- Rams: $5,200 vs. Falcons
Jamaal Williams- Lions: $4,700 vs. Commanders
Rhamondre Stevenson- Patriots: $4,500 at Steelers
Saquon Barkley is BACK! Barkley looks like the three-down force we remember from a couple of ago. The Panthers are a funnel defense that is horrific against the run. Last week the Browns ran all over the Panthers. Expect the Giants to deploy a similar strategy–to the benefit of Saquon Barkley. Speaking of the Browns, I am in on either Nick Chubb at $6,400 or Kareem Hunt at $5,400. Expect the Browns to run over the Jets’ defensive unit. D’Andre Swift was exceptional last week. The Lions’ offensive line is impressive, so I expect Dan Campbell and the Lions’ coaching staff to lean on that group again.
WR: BEST BANG FOR YOUR BUCK
Michael Pittman Jr.- Colts: $6,100 at Jaguars
Ja’Marr Chase- Bengals: $6,900 at Cowboys
Cooper Kupp- Rams: $7,400 vs. Falcons
Davante Adams- Raiders: $7,300 vs. Cardinals
D.J. Moore- Panthers: $5,600 at Giants
Diontae Johnson- Steelers: $5,500 vs. Patriots
Brandon Aiyuk- 49ers: $5,000 vs. Seahawks
Curtis Samuel- Commanders: $5,000 at Lions
Jahan Dotson- Commanders: $4,900 at Lions
Chris Olave- Saints: $4,500 vs. Buccaneers
Michael Pittman Jr. is grossly underpriced given his role in the Colts’ offense and the delicious match-up in Week Two. The Bengals could potentially be without Tee Higgins in this one, meaning Ja’Marr Chase will be leaned on even more in the passing game. You cannot go wrong trusting and paying up for Cooper Kupp or Davante Adams this week–they are just that good.
TE: BEST BANG FOR YOUR BUCK
Pat Freiermuth- Steelers: $4,700 vs. Patriots
Hayden Hurst- Bengals: $4,600 at Cowboys
Logan Thomas- Commanders: $4,800 at Lions
T.J. Hockenson- Lions: $5,000 vs. Commanders
Kyle Pitts- Falcons: $5,300 at Rams
Pat Freiermuth’s price tag on the slate is one of the most head-scratching values. Freiermuth was heavily involved a week ago and remains relatively stagnant at $4,700. Enjoy while you can! Hayden Hurst will have a role in the Bengals’ offense if Tee Higgins is out. Logan Thomas came back and looked strong following his injury. An every-down TE role is a value at only $4,800.
