Do you need a little extra money for the holidays? Well lucky for you, I’ve got a way for you to make a little extra money this holiday season. All you have to do is find a way to budget as many of these players as you can into your DFS lineup, and you can watch the cash roll in!
Cam Newton, Quarterback, Carolina Panthers
One of the hottest QB’s in the league playing against fantasy footballs worst defense against quarterbacks, spells a big week for Mr. Newton. The only way Cam doesn’t have a monstrous game against the Saints is if the Panthers just get up by so many points early on in the game that Newton and the Panthers just coast from that point. Which is definitely a possibility, but if I’m trying to set the perfect lineup I think you have to pick Cam Newton at quarterback.
Doug Martin, Running Back, Tampa Bay Buccaneers
Doug Martin has been one of the most consistent fantasy running backs over the last several weeks. Going up against a Falcons defense this weekend that gives up the third most fantasy points to running backs is a match up that can’t be ignored. Especially with Adrian Peterson going up against the NFL’s best run defense this week, I think Martin is poised to score the most fantasy points amongst running backs this week.
Antonio Brown, Wide Receiver, Pittsburgh Steelers
Antonio Brown had an uncharacteristically poor game last week. But in Browns defense, he was stuck being covered by Richard Sherman all day. This week Brown is going to be locked up with the Colts Vontae Davis, a player who is a far cry from Sherman skill wise. Ben Roethlisberger being a full participant in practice leads me to believe that he will be starting this weekend, which makes me think that Brown will have a huge bounce week against the Colts Sunday.
Delanie Walker, Tight End, Tennessee Titans
Walker has been on fire this season. He is by far rookie QB Marcus Mariota’s favorite target, compiling 200 yards receiving over the last two games while the rest of the Titans have only compiled 248 yards. Walker also has a very favorable matchup this week as he is going back up against the Jag’s who he scorched two weeks ago for 109 yards. I’m expecting at least 100 yards out of Walker this week, if he can score a touchdown as well there is no way I see any other tight end outscoring him.
Cairo Santos, Kicker, Kansas City Chiefs
Santos is the third highest scoring kicker this fantasy season, and this week he is going up against the Raiders who give up the second most points to opposing kickers this season. Santos also has the most field goal makes and attempts out of all kickers this season, so it is safe to say that he will have a solid chance at being the highest scoring kicker this weekend.
Cincinnati Bengals, Defense
The Bengals defense absolutely smashed the Rams offense last week, and this week the Bengals D is playing against the Browns, who give up the most points to opposing fantasy defenses. And this week the Browns are starting Austin Davis, a player who is sure to make a few costly mistakes that will give the Bengals D scoring opportunities. The Bengals are the defense you want in DFS formats.
