DFS - Fantasy Football - NFL DraftKings Lineup - Week 16 - Saturday Only - 12/22/18
We have a 2-game NFL slate this Saturday and let's get the weekend started on a winning note!
We're basically paying up for the top RB's today as we're going to roster Melvin Gordon III, Derrick Henry, and Gus Edwards.
At the QB position, I think it comes down to Marcus Mariota or Lamar Jackson. Phillip Rivers has been great this season, but I'm staying away him today as the Baltimore's secondary is just outstanding and I think there is solid chance Rivers has a less than average game. I decided to go with Jackson as I'm a bit worry about a blowout by Tennessee and I just love how Jackson can rack up points with his rushing ability.
The WR’s position was tough as I certainly can make room to get Keenan Allen in the lineup however, the matchup is awful and as I’m a bit worried about his hip, I’m staying away from him. As the Chargers will have yards through the air, I’m going with Tyrell Williams as he saw 12 targets last week and as I think Baltimore’s focus will be on Keenan Allen & Mike Williams, I think Williams will see plenty of opportunities tonight. Tennessee should be able to put some points up agianst Washington, so I don’t mind paying up for Corey Davis in this matchup. In my final WR spot, I decided to go with Willie Snead IV as he looks as if he has been Jackson's favorite WR and also has big play ability.
I'm not a big fan of any of the TE's today so to pay up for the trio of RB's we have going, I'm just throwing a dart with Tennessee’s Anthony Firkser as I expect the Titans to put up some points tonight and I’ll hope Firkser will get some red-zone looks.
For the defense, I'm going with the obvious pick with the Tennessee Titans as they are always tough at home and have the solid matchup agianst the Josh Jackson led Washington Redskins.
