This is about as big as it gets for the fantasy football season. Playoff spots, positioning, and byes are on the line this week.
Here are the players to start, stay away from, and guys that will not want to sleep on with your season on the line!
Even if your season is over, don't worry, this list will guide you to win back some cash in daily leagues.
START QB: Philip Rivers
He’s back at home against the winless Cleveland Browns, there isn’t anything you can tell me or yourself to convince me that Rivers is in for a bad week. Cleveland has surrendered the 8th most fantasy points per game to opposing QB’s. I think he has another strong week and I’d expect the same from Keenan Allen.
Bonus START: Jared Goff
I like Goffs matchup, guy has proved himself over and over he’s real and so are the rams
STAY AWAY QB: NY GIANTS
Right now Geno is the “starter” who knows if Webb gets a look at any point during the game I just don’t trust any of these guys or Ben Macadoodoos haircut/facial hair. There are plenty of other options out there. Don’t buy Geno on the low price tag in daily plays there is no guarantee.
START RB: Leonard Fournette
Last week LEO had a season low in yards 12 carries and 25 yards. I mean that is actually almost laughable. I think I could get 30+ on half the attempts-- but I'm nimble, quick on my feet and I’m a freak athlete -- but that’s neither here nor there. I think he has a bounce back performance against the Colts who give up the 6th most fantasy points per game to RB’s. Jags lost a tough one last week and I think it’s because they let Bortles be Bortles. They should get back to the run game and let their defense control the game.
START RB: JORDAN HOWARD
Guy ran for 6 yards last week against the dirty birds, 6 yards! That’s right take that weak shit home! – had to use the platform to talk some extra trash 10-1, 10-1, 10-1 ELECTRIC SLIDE!!!
Ok, I’m done. In all seriousness. He has a juicy matchup against the 49ers who horrendous against the run. I’m sure he needs to let out some frustration after last week, and I would think he does just that.
Bonus START: Marshawn Lynch
YOOOOOOO beast mode was back last week in small doses. Give him the rock and let him run through a brick wall. Amari and Crabtree are both out, the beast should be a big piece of the offense this week early on to create some space for Derek Carr.
STAY AWAY RB: Jay Ajayi
I love the guy I really do but only seeing about 6-8 touches doesn’t warrant me taking a risk to start him and hope for the big play. Birds RB situation is kind of a merry go round at this point and I’m totally fine with that because it’s working. If you listen to the GLOCKCAST, Kenjon Barner told us nobody is crying about carries they’re all sharing the rock and having fun doing it. Can’t trust him as a fantasy option but GO BIRDS.
START WR: Davante Adams
No Aaron Rodgers?! No Problem!! Seems to be the go to receiver for Hundley, and he has a really strong matchup this week. this Tampa Bay secondary (I’m being dead serious when I say this) couldn’t cover a corpse with a blanket.
Bonus START:Mike Evans
Going up against a Packers secondary that let Antonio Brown have his way last week, this week a bigger frame gets a chance to do the same. I’m gonna say Evans has his best game of the season. DON’T @ ME.
STAY AWAY WR: Josh Gordon
I’M NOT ON THIS HYPE TRAIN, THE BROWNS STILL STINK! I could see him getting garbage points but until I see him in a game I’m not touching him! I have nothing to base a start off of and for that reason with the season on the line, I’m out!
START TE: Travis Kelce
Offensively the Chiefs have to figure it out at some point, right? Great matchup against the Jets who are in the bottom 10 against tight ends and I think that Kelce is a huge part of restarting the engine for Big Red. I’m all in on Kelce this week.
Bonus START: Jared Cook: Giants are the absolute worst against TE’s and no Cooper no Crabtree…. Next Question.
STAY AWAY TE: Ricky Seals-Jones
Everyone seems to be getting a boner over this guy. He leads all tight ends in fantasy points last 2 weeks, ok. But the only thing that has sex appeal here for me is his name, it’s a sweet name, but I’m gonna take a pass on this guy staying hot.
QB: Jimmy Garoppolo: came in last week and threw a touchdown, Bears just got roasted this guy fucks
RB: Devontae Booker: Miami Stink Bomb Dolphins that is all
RB: Kenyan Drake: Check down city bruh
WR: Cooper Kupp: I was on him last week I’m on him again, feed this man
WR: Paul Richardson: against my birds, he scares me more than Douggie Fresh
TE: Hunter Henry: Love him love him love him this week!!!!
