Running Back

As expected, LeSean McCoy is the chalk. Lamar Miller and Christine Michael are higher owned than we might have expected. My first thought is to blame the tight pricing and their relative discount to the other chalky backs. I’ll make sure I keep on eye on them as I project ownership for Sunday. Other than that, the general order of ownership follows our current projections closely. Not much to get excited about here.

Wide Receiver

Marvin Jones is a site specific value and probably won’t be the second highest owned this Sunday. I think Chris Hogan is a similar story… he was helpful to roster construction on this specific site. You won’t find a number for A.J. Green or DeAndre Hopkins. Nobody rostered them on this site and that’s certainly due to price points over 6K. Don’t overreact to that.

Tight End

Greg Olsen is the chalk this week. Delanie Walker is going to be half this number at most on Sunday. I still think it’s interesting that Walker, Travis Kelce, and Jimmy Graham got more looks than Martellus Bennett despite him being cheaper on a tight pricing site. Gronk is priced up on DK and FD. I don’t think he’ll be that chalky, as foreshadowed by his low ownership on Aces.
