Wow, thanks a lot Broncos. Last week was a fantastic lineup except for Lindsay and Fant. See what happens when I put my eggs in that basket?...Did I learn my lesson? Probably not.
The lineup is taken from Draftkings.com
QB - Drew Lock
Okay, yeah, this is a bit homer-ish, but I really love the matchup against the Lions. They are really banged up on defense and even when healthy, they are straight up bad. I think this will be a game where he and Scangarello have a lot they want to prove, and I can see it being another 30+ type of game. Also, he’s really cheap.
RB - Austin Ekeler
I love this guy. He’s such a baller and is hugely underrated. I truly think he should be the No. 1 back for the Chargers, and either way, he will get plenty of touches against a “meh” Raiders’ defense.
RB - Joe Mixon
A great matchup against the Dolphins should help Mixon have a big week. He’s been good, not great, all season, but this game should leave him feasting.
WR - Marquise Brown
Brown and his MVP QB will look to go into Cleveland and blow the doors off the place. The Browns - as usual - are in full meltdown mode, and I think Brown could have a monster game against the Browns. Headline: Brown drowns clown Browns.
WR - Courtland Sutton
Two Broncos again? Really? Yes! And this week they are going to pay off my loyalty and win me some money! Dude is going to destroy this Detroit defense.
WR - Darius Slayton
Slayton was a big part of my semi-final win this week, and I think he will continue that success against the Redskins in week 16. Be it Manning or Jones, Slayton is turning into a big-time playmaker.
TE - Austin Hooper
Hooper has been solid since returning from injury and the Falcons have done a total turnaround to become a playoff-caliber team. The Jaguars are a different story and this seems like a game that could get out of hand quickly.
FLEX - AJ Brown
This guy has turned into one of my favorite receivers in football. He looks so big and has all the skills necessary to become a top-notch WR if he has the proper QB play. Seems like he should with Tannehill and this week against New Orleans could be a shootout.
DST - Indianapolis Colts
The Colts are in a fight for their playoff lives and are facing the turnover machine that is the Carolina Panthers offense. The Indy defense isn’t a great one, but it’s worth the risk.
