    I think just looking at everything my initial thoughts are;

    I like Philly D against Keenum, his decision making was questionable yesterday at times, few sacks, couple TO plus low scoring.

    I’ll be looking at Gronk and Ertz or both, and pairing with Brady.

    I like Yeldon as a solid cheap RB, I think NE gets up in this game and he will be catching some passes.

    Hardest part of this slate is which RB from NE (or none of them) and which WR gets peppered from NE.

    Also like Ajayi at 5200, I think he gets at least 20 touches and hopefully one of them is a score.

    My sneaky sleeper this week is Jarius Wright. At 3000 he got some good looks from Keenum yesterday, 6 targets.

    Jacksonville cheapest D on draft kings. I know its new england but this is a great defense who makes plays and can get turnovers at any point. I guess they will be chalk. Im locking in lewis out of all the running backs especially if burk is out again.

    Rapoport said Burkhead is likely to play this weekend.

    Amendola is my favorite reciever in this game.

    I bet Amendola’s your favorite receiver every game

  • NEPatsfan5385

  • NEPatsfan5385

    Would you be so kind as to share some knowledge instead of just saying statements?

  • NEPatsfan5385

    I would say Brady is using him like he used Edleman. A high target safety valve. Also i believe the Jags inside coverage isn’t as good as their outside coverage. I would think Gronk should also be good just by what Vance did to them last week

  • Kamais_Ookin

    Lewis is too expensive, if Burkhead is playing using burk instead. Should be lower owned too. Then again I will use them both together in some lu’s. Give me the pats dst vs a bortles forced to throw and get picked over and over when they’re trailing by massive pts.

    On such a small slate, no one is too expensive to pay up for. Gotta start with Brady, Lewis and Gronk and build out from there

  • HoodsFromTheWood

    Pats are cutthroats lol, Comfortable lead vs Titans Brady STILL threw 53 times and Belichick throwing red flag late in game. So whether Jags score like they did in Pitt or not, Pats gonna keep their foot on the gas

  • homers1226

    feels like a legarret blount week ?

    in 1st lol

    Vance did what he did because he was not a priority for Jags defense. They had to worry about Brown, Bell, then JuJu and the other receivers. Gronk will be a high priority for the Jags defense. We’ll have to see if any reports come out about how they wanna matchup with Gronk and others. Some sports writers wrote they think they should put Ramsey on Gronk. If they did that who would Bouye be on, Cooks?

    That’s a good point. But Ramsey on Gronk i don’t know. A lot of teams double team Gronk with a LB underneath and a safety or nickelback over the top. It will.be interesting to see
    That would make Cooks and Hogan better

    It would make sense for the Jags to do that because when you double team Gronk then one of the RB’s or underneath guys are open where the LB or safety vacated. They have fast enough LBs to cover the backs. The one thing Jax should do, if they are successful in the 1st half, is be ready to change it up because the Pats will make adjustments accordingly,

    This not an Amendola game – he will get blown up crossing the middle. I think Hogan is the guy to own this week and that would be so Bill B after everyone’s thinking Danny A is the guy to key on.

    It is more rare than a common thing that a Pats player blows up 2 weeks in a row. Bill is mixing it up week after week.

    I’m gonna zig when y’all zag to follow last week’s news/trends on the Pats.

  • Bnett2210

    Even though it is the Pats, the Jags D at 2800 is too hard to pass up. The Steelers lit em up and put 42 on the board and they still put up 8 points. It’s Brady and I understand all the logic for what could go wrong, but I don’t think this game gets as high scoring as that one or even close to that really.

    The hardest part will be to get the right NE back and pass catcher, but I like Lewis but I think for 8100 with Burkhead and White both there, he’s a full fade for me.

    For some reason the Vikings passing game with Thielen, Diggs, Rudolph and some McKinnon with my first look I think I will be heavy on all of them.

    For Philly, I like Ajayi but tough matchup so I could see something crazy with Clement being the top back for them with passing game work. It’s just first look at it at right now though.

    I watched last years week 6 (or 7) game between MIN/PHI last night. Yes, last year, but still the same coaching staffs and many of the same players. Offensively it was brutal performances by both teams and QB’s (Wentz and Bradford). The takeaway I had was PHI front seven absolutely dominated MIN OL throughout. MIN OL still isn’t highly regarded by PFF this year and PHI has a very highly rated front seven.

    Nice post. I have a feeling most of my builds this week will be ne/jx game stack with a D and K from min/phi.

    That’s my boy Blue !

    Love when you put in the extra effort and share – now how do we use that info ?

    Philly D and McKinnon as they’ll struggle to run and will need to get the ball off quick when they do pass ??

    I like McKinnon and Rudolph for that reasoning myself, quick dink and dunk offense using those 2

    I’m not saying the results will be drastically different (Keenum was getting pressured last night) but I’d be wary of using 2016 as a measuring stick for 2017.

    Speedbump McGee now plays LT for the Panthers. Eifflin is a Rookie. Remmers played for the Panthers last year. Sirles was playing RT (now at Guard), Joe Berger probably did play but not sure if he was at LG. The Vikings had a TON of injuries along the OLine. Many fans argue it’s why the Vikings started 5-0 and finished 8-8.

    Again I’m not saying you’re making a bad decision. I’m just warning on your methodology.
