    Love Shady for GPPs tomorrow. Not cash tho.

    Even with one ankle/foot?

    Henry put up 30 and we’re talking about McCoy and low ownership. Stop the madness.

    Henry’s match up was vs a poor chief run defense. Big difference.

    The only thing that can stop Alvin Kamara is a concussion. I just watched some of his highlights. His vision and ability to cut back is amazing. Almost like Barry Sanders.

    I have to agree with this. Luke is excellent but no match for Kamara. The guy is special.

  • Kamais_Ookin

    I’m fading kamara, it’s scary but gotta make stands in short slates. As others said could be a game where the wr’s are more heavily involved so I’m focusing on M. Thomas. For a single entry sunday-only contest I have Ingram paired with him since I feel most people are gravitating to kamara. I could go fournette and double saints rbs but I want to take a chance and use McCoy instead. The salary relief is welcome too. I will also not be following the herd on jaguars dst, banking on a low scoring game where bortles throws a lot of picks for my bills dst to grow.

    Anyone have an opinion on Allen Hurns? In the Sat-Sun slate, I’ve got 13 lineups and he’s in lie 11 of them…. In the Sunday only slate, I can’t seem to pivot off of him. The Sunday only WR’s are a miserable group to select from (other than M. Thomas, I have no idea who to select for my other 2). I haven’t seen Hurns mentioned, but I feel he’s the best option in his price range. I play on Fanduel, mostly cash games with a few single entry gpps

    The Jags have lost 3 of their last 6 and in that span have given up nine scoring plays of 25 or more yards and several others that lead to points.

    Jags can be beat. My thought is how are the Bills going to score and how are they going to stop Fournette? McCoy not 100% either. They will need a bad Bortels and
    2-3 turnovers. Also, they cannot get behind by two scores. Taylor has never been able to lead a comeback. To boot, against the Jacksonville secondary. Not gonna happen. Hoping the Bills can shock me and win. Either way, what a ride and great season. Go Bills

    I own more Bortles than any QB playing tomorrow. I expect him to play well. A home playoff game for JAX is huge and their owner seems genuinely enthusiastic about getting the community involved. They took tarps off sections, gave away thousands of tickets. I know it’s narrative but I think JAX and Bortles play well. He should have a good shot at topping Goff & Ryan. I’m not knocking the McCoy play, may use him myself.

    I’m hearing on the Bills message board that lots of fans will be at the game.

    You can’t live in the past – Watkins was given away from Buffalo – they know his skills have diminished.

    Woods and Kupp are better receivers in virtually every statistical category – Watkins doesn’t fight for balls – he was manhandled today.

    I am really surprised at how Watkins played this year. From a pure talent standpoint Sammy is better than both Woods and Kupp. On the field, its not even close. Sammy has been average at best. Not sure what’s going on. In buffalo, he was often injured. When healthy, he was pretty dynamic. Had great hands and fought for jump balls. He hasn’t shown any ability to separate. Today, he made that very clear. I really think he has never recovered from his foot injury.

  • miggs6876

    I don’t understand the love Shady is getting. Very poor match up and he is hurt. Last week, he was carted off the field. All week, he had one limited practice on Friday. I don’t think you can under estimate his injury.

    Don’t feel like he was given as much opportunities as other wrs in the team. There were a lot of times where he was open but goff never looks at him his first inclination is woods and sometimes kupp. Happened today too it showed in the replay.

    I mostly agree and faded him in the sat-sun slate. But for sunday-only slate he’s a good gpp play, because ownership is an important aspect and crazier things have happened anyways. It’s only a single line up so I said why not.

    like brees fournette stewart thomas and jax def for sunday

  • depalma13

    Damn, Draftkings is getting bold. Not only could they give a rat’s ass about their customers, now they are just straight up breaking the law with their Showdown game.

  • MattyK1981

    Someone convince me not to hammer the under on this 1pm game. It seems so improbable that these two teams combine for 40+ given the conservative nature of both head coaches and heavy reliance on the run on both sides.

    Some quick defensive scores on one side or the other perhaps? I am trying to build a game script where they blow thru the total and it’s tough.

    What’s the appeal of Fournette? I have 0% of Fournette in the 4 game slate lol. Shouldn’t matter for my double ups, but maybe I can swap some in my good GPPs. But I don’t want to jinx it, so I think I’ll end up going with 0%.

    Never really liked him that much. All he does is run downhill.

    He runs downhill Vs a run D that couldn’t stop him if he was running uphill. Gonna get 25-30 touches too. Lock button no brainer of the week. I did a total fade of Kamara/Gurley. Gurley was tough because of projected touches but both were in difficult matchups and both were priced higher than they had been all year. Kamara needs to smash at his highest price point all year vs tough run D with notoriously fast LB’s with 20 or less touches. Nothing about Kamaras setup is good, EVERYTHING about fournettes is good. Fournette is way more talented than Henry with a similar setup and workload. 30 touches Vs a horrible run D >20 vs a great one every day.

    1200 discount is a bonus, I’d take Fournette even if they were at the same price.

    Have you seen Buffalo’s run D? If anything, being a downhill runner makes me like him even more. Fournette has breakaway speed – if he can break a tackle or two he can take it to the house.

    The pace of the game. Buf O goes fast, more plays than most games. Low totals in the playoffs tend to go over. High ones, go under. I’d rather have played NO and LA to the under this weekend than this one. For the record, I posted a half dozen times about ATL’s D and/or that game being lower scoring.

    I’m all over Jax D but something tells me Buf does some scoring, shows a little fight, watching yesterday’s games had to be motivational for underdogs today:)

  • ASitar

    First, didn’t Shady blow up the weekend after a bad injury earlier this year?

    You want to be contrarian in DK, consider:
    Bortles
    C-Mac
    J-Stew
    Cole
    DEde
    WR
    Olsen
    Flex
    Jags

    Expect the unexpected.

    GL today

    You forgot Hurns. Played 97% in the slot last week, Lee will be situational and the slot is where you attack Buf.

    Also, I think you can expect the expected today. Two live dogs yesterday but I doubt today’s dogs can win and/or keep it close. Matchups/setups favor home teams.
