DFS - Fantasy Football - NFL DraftKings Lineup, Picks & Advice - 9/30/18

QB – Deshaun Watson (HOU) – Deshaun Watson is one of the best duel-threat QB’s in the NFL and although it’s been a tough start for the Houston Texans this season, I think Watson and the Texans are in a great spot against the Indianapolis Colts on Sunday. Watson had a rough game against the Patriots to open up the season however, has put up some solid stat lines over the past two weeks as he has combined for 695 passing yards & 4 TD’s while adding 90 yards on the ground. The Colts rank 15th in total defense however, I’m not buying into the Colts defense as of yet and as I love the fact that Watson has two outstanding receivers in both DeAndre Hopkins & Will Fuller V who can break off big plays anytime they touch the ball, I think Watson has a big day on Sunday.

RB – Giovani Bernard (CIN) – If you haven’t figured it out, we’re targeting the Atlanta defense this week and as Joe Mixon is still unavailable for the Bengals, Giovani Bernard is a great value option. Bernard was solid last week being the lead back as he has 61 yards & TD on the ground while also grabbing five receptions for 25 yards. Bernard does have big-play ability and the Falcons have actually struggled more against the run this year than the pass, as they rank 28th in the NFL allowing 125.7 rushing yds/game. Bernard has great hands out of the backfield and as he should be heavily involved in the passing game. I think he can get us a 20-point performance.

RB – Ezekiel Elliott (DAL) – Elliott has been a workhorse for the Dallas Cowboys over their first two games and as I just don’t see that changing, especially with the struggles with Cowboys passing game, I’m a big fan of Elliott this Sunday in his match-up against the Detroit Tigers. Elliott has 274 yards & 2 TD’s on the ground this season and although he hasn’t broken off for many big runs, he has been effective as he is averaging 5.7 yards per carry. The match-up for Elliott couldn’t get any better as Detroit has really struggled in stopping the run this season and rank dead last in the NFL rush defense as they are allowing 149.3 rushing yards per game. The Cowboys need a win here to ensure they don’t fall to 1-3 early in the season and as I expect Elliott to be heavily involved in both the rushing & passing game, I think he is worth the high price this Sunday.

WR – Will Fuller V (HOU) – As I’m going with DeShaun Watson at QB, I’m wanted to get one of their two weapons at the WR position and will be going with Will Fuller V. Fuller V has some of the best breakaway speed in the game and has shown how he can go for a long TD on any play. Fuller seems fully recovered from his hamstring injury and over his last two games, he has 13 receptions (20 targets) for 214 yards and 2 TD’s. Fuller V always has the advantage that he will be covered by the weaker CB from the opposing team with DeAndre Hopkins on the other side of him and as I expect a big game from Watson, I think Fuller will be a big part of the Texans offense on Sunday.  

WR – Calvin Ridley (ATL) – We’re going to stay in the CIN/ATL game and roster the rookie Calvin Ridley who has shown his incredible big play ability early in his NFL career after pulling 8 receptions for 146 yards and 3 TD’s last week against the New Orleans Saints. Ridley has seen 13 targets over the past two weeks and has a good match-up agianst a Bengals as their pass defense currently ranks just 23rd in the NFL allowing 270.3 yards/game. Cincinnati will obviously have their main focus on stopping Julio Jones which should open up some opportunities for Ridley and as this game has the makings for an offensive shootout, I want to ensure I have one Falcons WR on the team.

WR – Allen Robinson II (CHI) – Allen Robinson II has failed to find the endzone yet this season with the Bears, however, it’s only a matter of time as the talented WR has been targeted 28 times this season and has 17 receptions for 194 yards over his first three games. We love Robinson II this week as he will be up agianst the Tampa Bay Buccaneers that rank 31st in the NFL in passing defense as they are allowing 362.7 passing yards/game. Tampa Bay has allowed 7 passing TD’s so far this season and as the Bears should be able to put up some points on Sunday, I think Robinson has a big day and finds the endzone at least once.

TE – Tyler Elfert (CIN) – Elfert is finally healthy and although he hasn’t found the End Zone as of yet, he does have a respectable 11 receptions for 141 yards on the season. Elfert just has too much talent at this price and we have been encouraged that he will continue to produce after having 6 receptions last week (8 targets) for 74 yards. Elfert had 18 TD’s in 21 games between his 2015/16 season (missed the majority of last season due to injury) and as the match-up couldn’t get better with the Falcons, Elfert won’t have to do much to hit value.

FLEX – Sterling Shepard (NYG) – Sterling Shepard is often overshadowed by Odell Beckham Jr. however, he is a very talented receiver who comes into this game with 14 receptions on the season for 152 yards and a TD. Shepard and the Giants have a great match-up agianst the New Orleans Saints who just allowed Matt Ryan and the Falcons to throw the ball at will agianst them. New Orleans ranks 30th in passing defense allowing 336.7 yds/game and have allowed an NFL worst, 10 passing TD’s on the season. The Saints do have a solid cornerback in Marshon Lattimore who should be blanketed on Beckham Jr. for the entire game which should open plenty of opportunities for Shepard to have a huge day.

DEF – Seattle Seahawks – I didn’t have enough salary to pay up for Jacksonville, however, I don’t mind going with Seattle in their match-up against an Arizona Cardinals team who come into this game averaging just 6.7 ppg. Outside of David Johnson, the Cardinals just don’t have a lot of weapons on the offense end and I don’t think it’s going to get much better even with Josh Rosen making his first NFL start. Seattle has done a nice job forcing turnovers as they rank 2nd in the NFL with 8 turnovers and as they now have Earl Thomas back, I think the Seahawks defense will have no trouble containing the Arizona offense even if they are on the road.

Please check back Sunday as we’ll make any necessary adjustments due to “confirmed lineups”.

Good Luck!
