George Kittle

San Francisco 49ers

Waiver Wire Target


Kittle had a very average game this week catching four passes for 46 yards, but there could be some good news that came out of this game for him. C.J. Beathard has been named the starter for the rest of the season, and that was Kittle’s college quarterback, so you know there is immediate chemistry there that could pay nice dividends in the coming weeks

Alex Collins

Baltimore Ravens

Waiver Wire Target


Collins got the majority of the carries for the Ravens this week with 15 of them for 74 yards. He looks like he will be in a time share with Javorious Allen, but this was the first time we saw him take the majority of the carries, making him more interesting going forward.

Austin Hooper

Atlanta Falcons

Waiver Wire Target


Without Sanu the Falcons leaned a lot more on Hooper, who finished with seven receptions for 48 yards. He is becoming a bigger part of the Falcons offense, and he has big play potential that makes him a worthy add.

Ted Ginn Jr

New Orleans Saints

Waiver Wire Target


Ginn is the deep threat receiver for Drew Brees and they connected on a 20-yard score this week. Ginn finished with four receptions for 66 yards including that score. The Saints offense is lacking the big play and Ginn can provide the pop in the passing game.

Samaje Perine

Washington Redskins

Waiver Wire Target


Perine finally found the endzone this week, but his final stat line was not that pretty with nine carries for just 23 yards and three receptions for 24 yards and a touchdown. Samaje has lacked the big play, which has limited him in fantasy.

D'Onta Foreman

Houston Texans

Waiver Wire Target


Foreman got his customary 12 carries and this week gained 59 yards, but was once again held without a touchdown. He is getting a consistent workload, but he is not busting the big play to make him a worthy fantasy start.

Mike Wallace

Baltimore Ravens

Waiver Wire Target


After a stellar week Wallace came back down to earth, catching three passes for 30 yards. Wallace is a boom or bust.

Kendall Wright

Chicago Bears

Waiver Wire Target


Wright was basically invisible this game with two catches for 36 yards, and did not make a catch until the third quarter. There is too much inconsistency in the Bears passing offense.

Adam Humphries

Tampa Bay Buccaneers

Waiver Wire Target


Humphries continued to be a decent part of the passing game, catching six passes for 51 yards this week. He was able to do this with Ryan Fitzpatrick having to come in for Winston, so it shows that Humphries is a regular part of their offense.

C.J. Beathard

San Francisco 49ers

Waiver Wire Target


Beathard came in relief of Brian Hoyer, who was horrible, and finished with 245 passing yards with one touchdown and one interception. Kyle Shanahan has named Beathard the starting quarterback the rest of the season. He is only worth adding in deeper leagues, but he should also give you some yards on the ground.

Nelson Agholor

Philadelphia Eagles

Waiver Wire Target


Agholor was scooped up in a lot of leagues last week, and he stayed hot this week catching four passes for 55 yards with another touchdown. Nelson has become a favorite target of Carson Wentz, and he is getting favorable matchups with Jeffery and Ertz drawing most of the defensive attention.

Darren McFadden

Dallas Cowboys

Waiver Wire Target


Morris may already be taken in your league, but he will be sharing time with McFadden while Zeke sits on the sidelines. If you are in a deep league and need a flier, here he is.

Orleans Darkwa

New York Giants

Waiver Wire Target


Darkwa is the Giant running back that has emerged as the lead back for the team. He torched the Broncos defense for 117 yards on 21 carries and caught one pass for 13 yards. He showed some nice burst and that will likely get him another big workload in their next game.

Bennie Fowler

Denver Broncos

Waiver Wire Target


Fowler only had three receptions for 21 yards, but could be in line for a lot more work with the injury to Emmanuel Sanders. This is not a prolific passing attack, but he will start to seen enough targets to be added in fantasy.

Eli Manning

New York Giants

The Last Eli


Did you lose Aaron Rodgers in week 6? Do you have solid skill players carrying your squad, but are looking at the wire now for a QB for the stretch run in a deep league? You may want Eli Manning right now. He’s most likely sitting there on your waiver wire or can be traded for in exchange for some bantha fodder. (for the Star Wars fans. Waz up?) Nobody is going to want Manning after throwing for 128yds and 1TD in week 6. Then in week 7, have a match up with the Seahawks?! Hell no! Then a bye in week 8?! Forget that right?

Well....with the emergence of Evan Engram, and Sterling Shepard probably returning after the bye for week 9, there may be a new hope for Manning owners looking ahead. Manning is a durable, 2 time SB champion who makes players around him better. He's been doing it well before OBJ was there. Manning made players like Victor Cruz and Hakeem Nicks studs. How did David Tyree’s career go after leaving Manning? He got rich, but that’s not the point, or is it? With Engram, Shepard, and after some more reps with Roger Lewis and company; Manning could have a solid weekly floor of 230yds and 2TDs. That may not sound sexy, but I’ve seen fantasy championships won with QB’s like Josh Freeman with similar production, as long as you have quality skill players around him.

The Giants schedule after they return in week 9 from their bye isn't too shabby: vs Rams, @49ers, vs Chiefs, @Redskins, @Raiders, and face the Cowboys, Eagles and @Cardinals in the fantasy playoffs.

Tyreek Hill

Kansas City Chiefs

Chiefs WR corps isn't very good


Tyreek Hill and the entire passing attack should be flex or bench material this week against the Steelers, but I am well aware you can’t really bench Hill. He’s too explosive and returns a lot of kicks for touchdowns, but just don’t expect a lot of production through the air. Corey Colman and Mike Wallace were the only two receivers this year to score on the Steelers and Hill can easily put up one himself, but the Chiefs may not need to pass more than 15 times this game.

Fantasy Goo: With Chris Conley suffering a ruptured Achilles tendon last weekend, it's hard to like this receiving corps much beyond Tyreek Hill.

DFS Advice for FanDuel and DraftKings for the 2017 in Week 5

The Daily Dos & Don'ts - Week 5 DFS Advice (2017)

Stagg Party's Week 5 DFS



Pillar: WR, Dez Bryant  – FanDuel - $7,800 / DraftKings - $6,500

Dez Bryant has gotten through his tough slate of cornerbacks and now comes out on the rosy side. Taking on the Packers, where the team he caught it against, is as close to a revenge game as he gets at home. Dak has been playing great, but has missed Dez a number of times but going against the Packers has been a cure all for Dez. In three career regular season games Dez has averaged 11 targets 7 catches for 82.5 yards and has two touchdowns. The last time these two teams met in the playoffs, Dez compiled 9 catches on 12 targets for 132 yards and two touchdowns. Dez has yet to have a 100-yard game and has 18 in his career 101 regular season games, it is almost like he is due. The Packers have allowed each of A.J, Green and Julio Jones over 100 yards this season, and I will put some deniro on the line that Dez is next.

 

Sleepers: WR, Martavis Bryant – FanDuel - $5,700 / DraftKings - $5,000

Martavis Bryant has just been a hair off so far to start the season. He has missed two giant touchdown catches by just a foot, those are things that will end up correcting. He has also been involved in the redzone, as Bryant has been targeted in the end zone five times this season and has yet to convert a single one after being a dominant redzone performer previously in his career. His recent performance and the strength of the Jaguars corners have really pushed his price and his big play ability gives him a chance for a big score. While many are going to be scared off by the Jags, I am simply not one as the quarterbacks they have played this season have been a bag of caca.

 

Low Cost Dart Throw: TE, Austin Seferian-Jenkins – FanDuel - $5,500 / DraftKings - $3,500

ASJ has gotten back involved in the offense after returning from his suspension and saw ten targets over the last two weeks. He has also been efficient with his targets catching nine of ten for 77 yards. Now in his third game back, ASJ gets a dreamy matchup against the Cleveland Browns who are allowing the second most fantasy points to opposing tight ends and have struggled defending the position for the last few seasons. In DraftKings scoring, three tight ends have scored 17.1 fantasy points or more against the Browns and for his current leisurely price, I am all in. The Browns have allowed guys named Jesse James and Tyler Kroft to put up two touchdown games, is Seferian-Jenkins next?

  

I’d Avoid: WR, A.J. Green – FanDuel - $8,300 / DraftKings - $8,200

Green has gotten back on track over the last two weeks hauling in fifteen passes on twenty targets for 174 yards and two touchdowns. This week, he faces the Buffalo Bills who have gotten off to a great start defensively. The Bills ability to get pressure this season has been great, and that has been the thorn in Dalton’s side to begin the season. Although Green should still have a nice game, he just seems to lack the upside of the other top receiving options because of the pace of play each of these teams have been working at. The Bengals defense has been improved as well, leaving me to believe that this will be a slugfest, which typically doesn’t help win tournaments. The Bills have allowed just 1 passing touchdown so far and have not let a receiver surpass the 100-yard mark, allowing me to fade Green this week.

 

 


ØC's Week 5 DFS


 

Pillar: QB, Aaron Rodgers – DraftKings $8,100 / FanDuel $9,500

Aaron Rodgers will play on the road against the Dallas Cowboys this Sunday. In DraftKings scoring, Rodgers has yet to post less than 20.5 FF points in any game. It’s this kind of consistency that can win you a contest, especially with Aaron as his ceiling could easily be 30-35 FF points. Dallas is also the 27th worst defense against fantasy quarterbacks and both Devante Adams and Ty Montgomery are on track to at least be available for the Packer offense this weekend. Flashback to the divisional playoff game between these two teams when Rodgers put up 355 passing yards and two touchdowns; I can easily see this happening again.

 

Sleeper: RB, Duke Johnson Jr. – DraftKings $4,900 / FanDuel $6,000

Duke has been on a roll these last two games, averaging 21.7 FF points in Draft Kings scoring. Johnson does 90% of his damage through the air, totaling 20 receptions and 207 yards with two total touchdowns, proving he should remain the #1 weapon in the Cleveland offense. Isaiah Crowell has been disappointing and rookie QB DeShone Kizer isn’t making any eye-popping throws, often dumping it down to Johnson out of the backfield. Duke always has an opportunity to break 20 FF points and at such a discount, he is a no-brainer against a faulty Jets defense.

 

Dart Throw: TE, Hunter Henry – DraftKings $3,800 / FanDuel $5,200

You wouldn’t normally consider Henry a “dart throw” per say, but the pure inconsistency of his fantasy performances is puzzling. Every other game thus far has resulted in a fantasy goose egg and with his first touchdown catch of the season last weekend, we should be in line for another big fat zero. “NOT SO FAST” as Lee Corso would say, the New York Giants are the worst defense against tight ends, allowing a floor of 12.7 FF points. I am not worried about the road game or Antonio Gates stealing targets. The season is already over for the Chargers, so why not try to develop the young guns?

 

I'd Avoid: RB, LeSean McCoy – DraftKings $7,800 / FanDuel $8,200

I have loved McCoy since he came into the league, but I despise how he’s being used this season. Rushing attempts of 22, 12, 14, and 20 are wildly inconsistent and nowhere near what he deserves as the best offensive talent for Buffalo. LeSean also has zero total touchdowns over the opening stretch of the season and Vulture Extraordinaire, Mike Tolbert, still lurks near the goal line. Now the Bills travel into a harsh Cincinnati environment against the 5th toughest rush defense in the league. McCoy is too rich for my blood this week.

 

Stack

QB, Aaron Rodgers

WR, Jordy Nelson

 

 

 

d-Rx's Week 5 DFS


Pillar: RB, Le'Veon Bell - FanDuel $9,500 / DraftKings $9,500

Point home team favorite which spells positive running game script, Vegas expects the Steelers to score 27 points. Jacksonville is so good at the pass, that teams funnel the run against their defense.


Sleeper: WR, Jaron Brown - FanDuel $4,500 / DraftKings $4,500

There are only 8 WRs that have more air yards than Jaron Brown, which he leads the team in air yards (up there with Diggs, Martavis, and has more than AJ Green). Only 3 teams are allowing more fantasy points per game than the Eagles, so I like what this guy is doing and what he can do in this specific matchup.

 

Dart Throw: WR, Aldrick Robinson - FanDuel $3,100 / DraftKings  $4,600

Marquise Goodwin has had 4 concussions in the last 14 months and is probably going to sit this one out. If he is indeed out, Aldrick will matchup against the Colts' Vontae Davis who according to PFF is the 3rd worst cornerback in the NFL. 


I'd Avoid: QB, Ben Roethlisberger - FanDuel $7,900 / DraftKings $6,400

The Jaguars are stout against the pass (the best so far actually), I know Big Ben is solid at home, but I think they run the hell out of Le'Veon Bell in this game.
