Stagg Party's Week 14 DFS

 

 

Pillar: RB, LeSean McCoy – FanDuel $9,000 / DraftKings $7,200

LeSean McCoy has had two quiet games since his last explosive effort, but this seems like a good spot to play him. Against the Colts in a game that is expected to be cold, with snowfall, and Nathan Peterman most likely at quarterback? Fuck it sign me up! The Colts haven’t seen McCoy as a runner very often, and his style can fool uncommon opponents. With the weather and quarterback factors in this game, McCoy is pretty much the only name worth playing.

 

Sleepers: WR, Tyreek Hill – FanDuel - $7,800 / DraftKings - $7,100

Most of my lineups this weekend will be built with the stars and scrubs approach, so the mid-priced guy just won’t exist for me in most cases. Instead of picking a random name out of a hat, I will just write up another pillar type in Tyreek Hill. Hill had his best game in months and now gets the Oakland Raiders at home who are prone to getting torched by Speedy receivers, see Brandin Cooks a few weeks ago. Hill has multiple touchdown upside in a pivotal game for the Chiefs, who cannot afford to look over the Raiders. Matt Nagy is now calling plays, and we saw last week he wasn’t willing to sit back, he was aggressive and that was a great thing for Hill and company. Hill pounced on the Raiders for 125 yards and a score earlier this season, and I wouldn’t write off a similar performance this week.

 

Low Cost Dart Throw: RB, Gio Bernard – FanDuel $5,100 / DraftKings $3,100

Joe Mixon left Monday night’s game early with a concussion and is on the report as doubtful, Gio now gets a major boost. When Mixon left, Gio handled 13 carries and gained 77 yards while also retaining his receiving chops. With only rookie Brian Hill on the active roster, a guy who barely has any playing experience we can expect to see a massive snap share for Gio giving him prime opportunities at a price of nearly nothing. Gio will be highly owned, but could be one of the plays that unlocks a variety of different studs for your lineups.

 

Fade: RB, Todd Gurley – FanDuel $8,500 / Draftkings $9,000

Todd Gurley has been the best back in fantasy on the season, but gets to face a relentless defense on Sunday. The Rams will try to employ him as a receiver to combat the leagues best rush defense, but the only time Gurley scored less than 10 points this season, it was against another tough defense when they hosted Seattle. The Eagles have been beaten up by some pretty good passing backs, but I think they will key in on Gurley every play and have Goff beat them, like some have done successfully this season.

 

 

ØC'S Week 14 DFS

 

Pillar: WR, Antonio Brown - FanDuel $9,000 / DraftKings $9,000

There is no stopping this man from absolutely destroying his opponents. Brown cannot be stopped and should be priced at $10k every single week. His last three weeks have combined for over 410 yards receiving with six touchdowns. Even an illegal head to head hit in the end-zone couldn’t stop him from scoring last Sunday Night. The Ravens have a great defense, but the loss of Jimmy Smith hurts a little and the game is played in Pittsburgh, where the stars come out to shine in very close and physical matchups.

 

Sleeper: WR, Josh Gordon - FanDuel $6,700 / DraftKings $5,800

Josh Gordon showed he’s not yet in game shape, but the matchup at home against the Packers should prove to be fruitful, no matter who the QB is. Casey Hayward from the Chargers secondary said Gordon was just as tough to guard as Odell Beckham Jr., which is a major compliment after not playing for over a year. Better snag Gordon for the few weeks he is decently priced, as he could shoot up to the $8,000s with one great game.

 

Dart Throw: QB, Eli Manning - FanDuel $6,000 / DraftKings $4,800

This is more of a “fuck the world” pick as Eli returns from his one week benching. The crowd will be on his side and so will the game plan against a mediocre rival pass defense at home. Eli has been off and on, mostly off, but he should have a fire in his belly to still prove to the front office and world that he isn’t washed up. It wouldn’t surprise me if Manning explodes for his annual lone fantasy performance with 5-6 touchdowns as he so often does. Add in the fact that a win against the Cowboys could spell the end for the Dallas season. There’s a lot of intrigue this weekend for the NYG v. Dallas matchup!

 

Fade: RB, Leonard Fournette - FanDuel $8,300 / DraftKings $7,000

I have not been impressed with the way Fournette has returned after his injury/team suspension, but this also includes his usage. He only has one touchdown in the last seven weeks (four games) and never breaks more than 2-3 receptions. Jacksonville plays at home, but its against the 4th best fantasy rush defense Seattle Seahawks. You can spend your money on a higher upside back like Lamar Miller, with extra to spare.
