Oh mama! We were a TE and DST away from winning BIG money last week and are now on a two-week stretch of earning some $. With three weeks left in the 2019 season, I’m starting to figure this thing out, and I hope you are all still along for the ride.
The lineup is taken from Draftkings.com:
QB - Ryan Tannehill
This guy has been incredible, and since I picked him up in my primary fantasy (yearly) league, I believe I deserve the right to write “genius” after my name. He’s playing against a Houston defense that just got destroyed by a rookie QB and first-time OC, and this game will likely be a shootout. Also, I really need him to be good this week...
RB - Chris Carson
Okay, he’s not cheap, but he’s facing the 29th ranked Carolina rush defense and has been a monster over the past few weeks. His backup is now injured and so the guy who was already the clear No. 1 will likely get even more carries.
RB - Phillip Lindsay
I’m really curious to see how Scangarello schemes things this week, but after what he did to the Texans, count me as a believer. KC has a terrible run defense and after seeing what Drew Lock can do, they can’t just stack the line to defend the run. I think they get creative with Lindsay this week, and I can’t wait to see him lead the Broncos to a win!!!!!
WR - Darius Slayton
Slayton has had a few big weeks and he seemed to be the top-target for Eli Manning. If Eli is back in for the injured rookie again this week, Slayton could continue his beasting. He is crazy cheap and is facing the 30th-ranked Miami defense. Boom.
WR - Terry McLaurin
I think I have selected Terry more than any non-Bronco this season and he has always paid me off for the trust. His rookie QB has been less than brilliant, but McLaurin still finds a way to make a big play or two each game. Oh, and he’s going up against a bad Philly secondary.
WR - AJ Brown
This guy looks like a tank and is showing that with a decent QB, he can be really good. I’m doubling up with Brown and Tannehill this week and hoping that the Titans show me the moneyyyyy!
TE - Noah Fant
Am I an idiot for starting two Broncos against a team that should absolutely pound our team into the ground? If so, I will gladly take the idiot flag and plant it in my driveway with pride. The guy is freakish and (as I said before this season) will be a top-3 TE within his first three years.
FLEX - Nick Chubb
I love our RBs this week, and this Chubbmonster is going to own Vance Joseph and the Arizona defense. He’s a regular high-scorer and this game should not be any different.
DST - Chicago Bears
Okay, this is a reach since they are playing a very decent Green Bay offense, but my bet is that it’s cold and nasty - as per usual - and I think it becomes a low-scoring ugly-fest. I don’t blame you if you go somewhere else here....
Which is crazier - starting two Broncos this week, or going with the Chicago Bears defense?
