Whether you are interested in the perfect lineup for DFS dominance, or just for helping set up the best line up possible in ordinary fantasy leagues, we here at Breaking Football don’t discriminate! We’ve got the info for you to use at your discretion!
Philip Rivers, QB, Chargers
The Raiders have been pretty good so far this year, but they have been giving up a lot of points to opposing quarterbacks. Considering that Rivers set career highs for passing yards, attempts, and completions, I think it is safe to say that Rivers is poised for big production this week. This guy is the one to start in DFS or any standard leagues.
Doug Martin, RB, Buccaneers
Martin’s matchup against the Redskins D isn’t the easiest one if you look at the Redskins season long stats against the run. However, last week the Redskins gave up a lot of fantasy points to Chris Ivory. That makes them suspect to getting gashed by Martin, who has been playing the best football since his rookie year over the last two weeks. Martin is relatively inexpensive in DFS, and if you are on the fence about him in your league than ABSOLUTELY start him!
Willie Snead, WR, Saints
The Saints have a very easy matchup against a very injury riddled lackluster Colts D. At least one Saints receiver is going to go off big time this weekend, and really your guess is as good as mine as too who that receiver will be. It could be Ben Watson (I know he’s a tight end) or Brandin Cooks, but for what it’s worth I think it will be Snead. He’s being targeted more than any other Saints receiver so far and still has the benefit of seeing more favorable coverages than Cooks. Snead is also an inexpensive DFS option.
Travis Kelce, TE, Chiefs
The Steelers D just lacks the defensive personnel to cover a top tier tight end like Kelce. Of course Kelce is really the only payer the Steelers need to worry about defensively, but I still think they will struggle to contain the dynamic tight end. Kelce is sure to be an absolute beast in PPR formats, but he will also be great in standard scoring leagues as well. With Maclin dealing with nagging injuries and Charles done for the year the Kansas O is going to have to run primarily through Kelce. Expect Kelce to have as good fantasy production as the top RB’s and WR’s this week.
Jacksonville Jaguars Defense
The Jags get to play against a Bills O that is missing their starting quarterback. Really Tyrod Taylor has carried the Bills O so far this season, and with him sidelined I just don’t see the Bills finding much offensive success. That combined with the fact that the Jags D has been pretty great defending the run leads me to believe that Jacksonville will find defensive success against the Bills this weekend.
Greg Zuerlein, K, Rams
Zuerlein has missed a couple of kicks in recent weeks, but he has probably the best kicker match up this week. If you are streaming kickers in fantasy than Zuerlein is the guy for you. His misses over the last two weeks have been uncharacteristic, and probably scared off a lot of people who are also streaming kickers. But Cleveland has a defense that will allow a lot of yards, but play pretty well in the red zone. That combined with the fact that St. Louis can move the ball but lack a real red zone presence offensively makes me believe that Zuerlein is going to be lining up for 3 or more field goals, plus an extra point or two.
