Last Week’s team (171.50 total, ~145 cash line):

DeAndre Washington (7.20)

David Montgomery (27.50)

Breshad Perriman (5.60)

Robby Anderson (17.70)

Keke Coutee (10.40)

Travis Kelce (30.60)

Austin Ekeler (23.60)

Cowboys (18.00)

QB

Chalky

Jalen Hurts ($5900) is here, and came out with a bang. 18 carries for over 100 rushing yards from a QB is hard to ignore. I don’t think Hurts will necessarily run more than 15 times again, but a matchup against Arizona’s man defense and uptempo is one of the best possible spots for Hurts to be in.

Others to Consider:

Lamar Jackson ($7500) is back to carrying the Ravens offense, just in time for a playoff run. Jackson has at least 45 rushing yards in 10 of his 12 starts with 6 rushing TD on the year. His rushing makes his floor immense in a game against the Jaguars that is basically a must win.

RB

Chalky:

Alvin Kamara ($7400). Don’t over think it. Kamara without Michael Thomas, with Drew Brees back, against the Chiefs, is a lock and load play.

Leonard Fournette ($4500) is expected to assume the lead back role for the Bucs with Rojo out with covid. He’s cheap, should get double digit touches, and has a passing game role, so I think he is a viable option to allow you to get more expensive pieces in your roster.

Off the Board:

JK Dobbins ($5900) is in a plus matchup with high upside. However, Gus Edwards ($4400) has been seeing red zone usage and we can probably expect 10-12 carries from him. Add in Lamar and Dobbins upside takes a hit every week as he needs touchdowns to be worth it, but Edwards only needs to outscore Fournette to give you heavy leverage on the field and could come out of this game with 2 TD.

Others to Consider:

Cam Akers ($6600) gets to face the Jets this week. With 50 carries in the last two weeks combined, Akers has taken over the lead back role in this offense, and the upside against a Jets team that no longer cares is high for Akers.

WR

Chalky:

Brandon Aiyuk ($6300) is underpriced. Deebo Samuel and George Kittle will be out, meaning Aiyuk will lead the charge against a Cowboys defense that have allowed 6 WR to eclipse 100 yards and 4 WR to catch multiple TD in the same game. Aiyuk has seen 49 targets in the past 4 weeks and should continue to stay hot.

Off the Board:

Robert Woods ($6800) and Cooper Kupp ($7000) should see some easy volume against the Jets this week and could get overlooked at these prices and people flocking to the shiny new toy of Cam Akers.

Others to Consider:

Emmanuel Sanders ($4200) and Tre’Quan Smith ($3200) are viable options for the Saints offense. Sanders had 5.4 receptions per game with MT out earlier in the season and should be the top benefactor. TY Hilton ($5500) has seen three consecutive games over 80 receiving yards and has the narrative that he crushes the Texans (avg. 5.5/97/0.6 in 17 games), but with people on that narrative and recent performance being high, I am fading the increased ownership of a player who had not eclipsed 80 yards prior to Thanksgiving.

TE

Chalky:

Cole Kmet ($3000) has seen 7 targets and over 75% of the snaps in back to back games. Trubisky has confidence in him and with Jimmy Graham banged up, Kmet has a locked in role in the offense.

Others to Consider:

Jared Cook ($3400) should see a boost in targets with MT out, and faces a Chiefs defense that just allowed 2TD to Mike Gesicki.
