DFS - Fantasy Football - NFL FanDuel 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.
I've saved money for the most part on the WR's. I did go with Tyrell Williams for the Charges as he did see 12 targets last week and as I think the Baltimore’s focus will be on Keenan Allen & Mike Williams, I think it could open some opportunities for Williams tonight. I think Taywan Taylor is a solid sneaky play today as he has a nice matchup agianst Washington and continues to see more of a role in the Tennessee offense as he has at least 5 targets in each of his last three games. Taylor has some great speed and certainly has the ability to break off a big play. 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 Baltimore's Maxx Williams. Williams has been a disappointment for the Ravens after they used a high draft pick on him, however, he did catch a TD two weeks agianst KC and I'm hoping that lighting strikes again.
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.
