  • Tua Tagovailoa vs Houston $5800 (Andy)

Houston is a good matchup for Tua this week, and he has put two good showings in his previous three weeks. He should be a value here.

  • Lamar Jackson vs Vikings $7300 (Andy)

Reasonably soft opposition secondary, rushing upside, and a performing Mark Andrews and Marquise Brown should mean lots of fantasy points offered up. And with how well he’s played he should combine for over 305 yds and you should smash the over this week.

  • Jordan Love vs Chiefs $4400 (Phil)

The Chiefs suck on defense and Love gets to show the world why the Packers drafted him. As one of the cheapest starters this week, I'm happy to stack him with studs in other positions. And before they remove him, go smash the under for Rodgers here.

  • Tyrod Taylor vs Dolphins $5000 (Phil)

Tyrod is back from his IR stint and steps back into the starter role. The dolphins D has been inconsistent at best and this is a nice cheap stack with Cooks I love this week for DFS.

Running Backs

  • Nick Chubb vs Bengals $6700 (Andy)

Chubb was back in action last week and was handed sixteen carries right away. While he didn’t score, with another week’s worth of practice under his belt, he should be back to fantasy relevance and scoring TDs.

  • Boston Scott vs Chargers $5200 (Andy)

Now that I have included him in this article, he will probably receive five total touches, but at his price, a punt play in a few lineups could be on the cards for me this weekend if you want to pay up in other places.

  • Corradelle Patterson vs Saints $6300 (Phil)

Patterson continues to show that he is a multi-tool talent who will continue to see both targets and rushes. With no Ridley, he will continue seeing his involvement in the offense go up.

  • Devontae Booker vs Raiders $5900 (Phil)

No Saquon no problem as Booker will pick up the slack. Each week he’s started he has been fantastic and gets enough work in the passing game to keep him a top 12 play.

Wide Receivers

  • Stefon Diggs vs Jaguars $7700 (Andy)

Josh Allen should be able to have his way with the Jaguar's defense, and this is an excellent spot for Diggs, who should be able to receive his usual large target share and have the chance to make it three weeks in a row with a score.

  • Marquise Brown vs Vikings $6000 (Andy)

I like both of these wide receivers this week, but I feel I’ll have more of Brown in line-ups due to his price. A stack of Jackson and Brown looks like a great option. What can Brown do for you?

  • Donavan Peoples-Jones vs Bengals $4100 (Phil)

DPJ exploded last week and if he’s healthy and plays he will see an expanded role in the offense now that OBJ is being released. He took his 5 targets for 4 catches 100 plus yards and 2 TDs against the Cardinals. I expect him to continue his breakout.

  • Brandin Cooks vs Dolphins $6100 (Phil)

Cooks is quietly WR17 on the year while having multiple games with Davis Mills throwing him the ball. He gets Tyrod back this week and I expect him to continue to be fed targets.

Tight Ends

  • Dallas Goedert vs Chargers $4500 (Andy)

Goedert produced 72 yards from six catches last week, and if he can do something similar and find the endzone, he could be primed for a big game should Jalen Hurts need to throw the ball.

  • Mike Gesicki vs Texans $4900 (Andy)

Tua has been peppering Gesicki with targets recently, and if this trend continues and Gesicki can find the endzone, like Goedert, he could have a big weekend.

  • Tyler Conklin vs Ravens $3000 (Phil)

Conklin has slowly built his role up and while he’s only seen one Td on the ye
