Quarterback:

Kirk Cousins (WAS):

Cousins dropped a 22/28, 319, 4:0 line and 3-11-1 on the ground against the Bills. Cousins’ points ranked him 2nd for QBs on both FD and DK. Cousins’ price per point efficiency ranked him in 1st/2nd on DK/FD, respectively.

Cousins has a sweet matchup against Philadelphia who rank 30th in DvP and 28th overall. The Eagles are favored by -3 with a game total at 48, the third highest on the board. Cousins’ salary price ranks him 14th/17th on FD/DK, respectively.

With DeSean Jackson and Jordan Reed both healthy and running on all cylinders, Cousins has the potential to return value as a top ten play in a positive game script scenario.

Blake Bortles (JAC):

Bortles put up a 23/38, 297, 1:1 line against the Falcons. Bortles’ points ranked him 8th/10th for QBs on FD/DK, respectively.

Bortles has a juicy matchup against a New Orleans defense who rank last in DvP and last overall. The Saints are favored by -3.5 with a game total at 52, the highest on the board. Bortles’ salary price ranks him 7th/8th on FD/DK, respectively. Matthew Stafford dropped 254 yards and 3 TDs on the Saints last week, and Bortles’ potential ceiling here could easily return this or more.

Running Back:

Charcandrick West (KC):

West put up a line of 16-76-1 rushing and 2-9-0 in the air in a tough matchup against the Ravens. West ranked 10th/12th in fantasy scoring on FD/DK, respectively.

West has a solid matchup against Cleveland who rank 25th in DvP and 29th overall. Kansas City is a whopping -12.5 favorite at home with a game total at 43.

West’s salary ranks him 12th/13th on DK/FD, respectively. With Kansas City still in the playoff hunt, the positive game script and volume should be there for West to have a very busy afternoon.

David Johnson (ARI):

Johnson rumbled for a line of 29-187-3 rushing and 4-42-0 in the air against the Eagles. Johnson ranked 1st in fantasy scoring by position on both DK/FD. Johnson’s price per point efficiency ranked him 1st/2nd on FD/DK, respectively.

Johnson has a decent matchup against Green Bay who rank 10th in DvP and 10th overall. Arizona is currently a -4.5 favorite at home with a 49.5 point game total, second highest on the board.

Johnson’s salary ranks him 8th/11th on DK/FD, respectively. Johnson should continue to be the highest owned RB play with a positive game script.

Wide Receiver:

Kamar Aiken (BAL):

Aiken put up a line of 8-128-1 on 12 targets (all team highs) against Kansas City. Aiken’s scoring ranked him 8th/9th on DK/FD, respectively. His price per point efficiency ranked him 4th/6th on DK/FD, respectively.

Aiken has a solid matchup against Pittsburgh who rank 31st in DvP and 18th overall. Pittsburgh is currently a -10 favorite with a 47.5 point game total, fourth highest on the board. Aiken’s salary ranks him 29th/30th on FD/DK, respectively.

With a positive game script, Aiken should be highly targeted all day. The garbage points could potentially hit full stride in the 4th quarter.

Golden Tate (DET):

Tate put up a line of 6-45-2 on 6 targets against New Orleans. Tate’s scoring ranked him 13th/14th on DK/FD, respectively.

Tate has a decent matchup against San Francisco who rank 18th in DvP and 26th overall. Detroit is currently a -9 favorite at home with a 43 point game total. Tate’s salary ranks him 22nd/29th on DK/FD, respectively.

The receiver situation is smelling a lot like last season’s scenario where a less than 100% Megatron played decoy to Tate’s de facto WR1 role. Tate has racked up 5 TDs in the past four games. Calvin Johnson has totaled 5 receptions in the past three games.

Tight End:

Zach Ertz (PHI):

Ertz had a solid line of 8-78-1 on 13 targets (team high) against Arizona. Ertz’s scoring ranked him 2nd/3rd on DK/FD, respectively. His price per point efficiency ranked him 1st/2nd on DK/FD, respectively.

Philadelphia hosts Washington as -3 point favorites with a game total at 48, third highest on the board. Washington ranks 7th in DvP and 19th overall. Ertz’s salary ranks him 19th/22nd on DK/FD, respectively.

Ertz has 2 TDs in his last three games, and has been a top 2-3 receiving option for Bradford of late.

Will Tye (NYG):

Tye put up a line of 5-43-1 on 8 targets against Carolina. Tye’s scoring ranked him 7th on both DK/FD. His price per point efficiency ranked him 2nd/4th on DK/FD, respectively.

The Giants head to Minnesota as +6 point dogs with a game total at 45.5. Minnesota ranks a middling 14th in DvP and 13th overall. Tye’s salary ranks him 15th/17th on DK/FD, respectively.

With the suspension of Odell Beckham Jr. this week, Tye’s potential uptick in targets are there in a game with a positive script for him.

Defense:

Houston Texans:

Houston heads to a Mariota-less Tennessee where the Titans rank 31st in DvP. This game is currently off the Vegas board. Houston’s salary ranks them 5th/10th on FD/DK, respectively, making them a better value on DraftKings.

Zach Mettenberger fills in for Marcus Mariota (MCL) in what should be a low-scoring affair. A couple of turnovers and a few sacks are definitely in play for Houston here.

Oakland Raiders:

Oakland hosts San Diego where the Chargers rank 28th in DvP. Oakland is currently a -5 point favorite with a game total at 47. Oakland’s salary ranks them 23rd on FanDuel and bottom-barreled on DraftKings, making them a better value on DraftKings.

With the retirement announcement of future Hall-of-Famer Charles Woodson, and potentially the Raiders last game in Oakland, this could turn into an emotional boost for the Raiders, who have caused 8 turnovers and 13 sacks over their past 4 games.
