Saquon Barkley $8700 vs TB: My favorite RB play in the slate. Great spot here against TB who has given up the most TDs to runningbacks over the last 9 games. This game also features a total of 52.5 points which is good for 2nd highest on the slate.
Ezekiel Elliot $8500 at ATL: I will be honest and say I won’t end up with a lot of Zeke here just because I will be paying up in most cases for Saquon whom I like better. This is still a good matchup as we’ve seen the Falcons struggle to stop runningbacks all year and just gave up almost 40 DK fpts to Nick Chubb… enough said.
Christian McCaffrey $8000 at DET: If you want to pay a bit down at the position or pivot off of the higher priced Barkley, Kamara, Elliot, and Gordon, then Christian is your guy. He is still the offense on this Panthers team and should be overlooked here some which adds to his appeal.
James Conner $7200 at JAX: Sleeper pick that should go somewhat overlooked too. I expect more people to gravitate to David Johnson for $300 more against the Raiders and stay away from the matchup with the Jags.
Kerryon Johnson $5800 vs CAR: With the Lions losing Marvin Jones they have moved Riddick to a slot role. That opens up the door for Kerryon to get a few extra catches and touches out of the backfield. Carolina’s defense looks suspect of late and even if this game turns bad for the Lions, Kerryon should still get a heavy workload.
Theo Riddick $4000 vs CAR: As mentioned above he should get some more snaps lining up in the slot with Marvin Jones out. At this price tag he is viable, but I will be limiting my exposure only to GPPs.
Dion Lewis $4800 at IND: Lewis is way too cheap here for the usage he is getting. He has taken over the backfield and should get a few more catches out of the backfield as long as this one stays competitive. I hope too that people come off him some with last week’s performance.
Mark Ingram $4700 vs PHI: This looks like a great spot for both him and Kamara. Dollar for dollar I like Ingram more as you can see because I’m not writing up anything on Alvin. The game script should suit him here as I expect the Saints to control this game and use Thunder and Lightning to close it out.
