Week 9 Review
Josh Allen 39 DK Points / 36 FD Points
Justin Herbert 26.44 DK Points / 23.44 FD Points
Dalvin Cook 42.2 DK Points / 38.2 FD Points
Chase Edmonds 11.8 DK Points / 10.3 FD Points
Diontae Johnson 14.1 DK Points / 11.1 FD Points
Cole Beasley 6.9 DK Points / 5.4 FD Points
T.J. Hockenson 14.9 DK Points / 12.4 FD Points
Hunter Henry 7.3 DK Points / 5.3 FD Points
We start at the QB position and I’m going to take a victory lap. Josh Allen took advantage of a terrible Seattle defense throwing for over 400 yards and accounting for four total touchdowns. The rookie, Justin Herbert, continues to shine throwing for over 300 yards and two touchdowns.
Dalvin Cook ate up the Lions’ run defense going 22-206-2. Regarding Chase Edmonds, the stat line wasn’t the best looking, 70 rushing yards and 18 receiving yards. However, he touched the ball 28 times (25 rushes and 3 catches). If you would have told me that he would have that volume moving forward at his price point last week, I’d continue to lock him in.
Diontae has another week of double-digit targets (10) hauling in 6 for 77 yards and a touchdown. Our other WR spot was a miss. I knew I wanted a part of the Bills offense, I targeted the wrong receiver. It was John Brown, not Cole Beasley, we should have looked at. Beasley caught all three of his targets for 39 yards.
T.J. Hockenson was solid, but not spectacular. The Kenny Golladay-less offense struggled against the Vikings. Hockenson was able to pull in 5 of 8 targets for 39 yards and a touchdown. Henry looked like he was in a good spot and when the news broke late in the week that Keenan Allen may miss the game, it seemed like an even juicier opportunity. Then, Sunday morning came and Allen was active and poof – there went that opportunity. Henry caught 4 of 7 targets for 33 yards.

Week 10 Player Picks
Deshaun continues to be an absolute stud. He provides a nice rushing floor that we like to see from our quarterback. The Team Rise of Fall NFL Study Hub shows us that Watson’s opponent this week, the Browns, allow the third-most fantasy points to the quarterback position.
My initial value quarterback is Alex Smith. He gets the starting nod after Kyle Allen went down to a gruesome leg injury. Smith has the benefit of going against the soft Lions defense that put up little resistance against the Vikings this past Sunday. The NFL Study Hub shows up that the Lions are relatively tough against quarterbacks, Smith will not need to do much to hit value.
It seems like Jones has had the last 3 weeks off due to the issue with his calf. He did play Thursday night against the 49ers but, wasn’t needed as Rodgers and Adams did the majority of the heavy lifting. The spot is great for Jones. According to the NFL Study Hub, the Jags give up the 4th most points to the running back position.
This play will be based on Christian McCaffrey’s status this weekend. DraftKings jumped the gun with Davis’ pricing this weekend, as he is minimum priced at $4000. He will be the chalk of all chalk if McCaffrey is out this weekend.
Woods has been the most consistent receiver on the Rams. However, this is more of an indictment on how bad the Seattle pass defense is. The NFL Study Hub shows us (not that we didn’t already know) that Seattle gives up the most fantasy points to receivers.
Jeudy seems to be coming into his own. Over the last two weeks, he’s been targeted 24 times. There is a chemistry between him and Drew Lock. The NFL Study Hub shows us that he’s going against a Las Vegas defense that’s in the bottom third of points allowed to the wide receiver position.
Ebron isn’t a target monster but, he’s caught touchdowns in consecutive games. He was brought in to be a red zone threat for Big Ben and has done well enough. Cincinnati’s defense isn’t a threat to stop the Pittsburgh offense as a whole. The Bengals struggled against the tight end position allowing the 5th most points to the position.
We have the return of Austin Hooper from his appendicitis. Before missing the last few weeks he was becoming a main target for Baker Mayfield. In weeks 4, 5, and 6 he was targeted 23 times. Houston is a middle of the road team defending the tight end position.
