It’s been all the talk – SOFT prices this week. I’ll note what stands out to me, feel free to add.
Rivers ($7,000). How his price went down I have no idea. Yes it was against the Jags but the Jets aren’t too much better at defending the pass. Jets are great against the run which makes Rivers need to throw it even more. Love him here.
Big Ben ($7,500). See Jax D.
Brees ($8,900). There is so much value everywhere else this week, I think you can afford Brees here. I know he’s been awful but he has his best matchup of the year and you have to think we’d see his old form at some point right? No better time than this weekend against a pretty poor Tampa D – oh and they are at the superdome.
Bell: ($7,300). Jags D and Bell is a beast. If you are going to pay up for an RB – this is the guy to have.
Murray: ($7,500). Houston hasn’t been great against the run and I think Murray has a good day, but I’m not sure if he will hit that 4X mark. Think Bell has a better chance.
Ivory ($3,100). This pricing is unreal for Ivory, who has had a great season. Hoping the newbies will be too focused on the guys up top to scroll down for Ivory. He has great value here.
Jennings ($5,500). Again, a better price than I expected and possibly his best matchup of the year. I am staying away from Manning and the receiving core this week because I think they will be so focused on the run. Jennings is capable of being the top scorer this week for RB’s.
Martin ($6,100). Great matchup and you know they want to keep that Saints O on the sideline. Murray just torched them and Martin could have a big game here as well. He is still a little higher priced than I’d like to get him as this tourney you will need 4X value at every position to make any kind of $.
Bernard ($6,700). NE just got gashed and are on a short week. Bernard and co. have had a week off. I look for him to have a big game and also be a possible top scorer this week.
Sproles ($5,100). His price makes me take a look at him because if there is anyone capable of going off, it’s Sproles. They get a decent matchup and are at home.
Brown ($8,100). It’s the Jags and Brown has been a beast this year. Think it continues here. Only thing that worries me is that they jump out to a big lead early and focus on the run.
Harvin ($6,100). The way to beat the Redskins is through the air and everyone knows it. I think Harvin could easily have a big day here.
Quick ($5,900). The Rams really don’t have another quality receiver to throw the ball to. Was hoping he’d be a bit cheaper but in what could be a game where they need to throw to keep up, Quick has the opportunity for a great outing.
Benjamin ($4,800). This one had me scratching my head like the Ivory price. He is obviously their best receiver and it’s not close. Cam loves him, and the Bears just got torched by Rodgers and Nelson. Prob my favorite value play at WR.
Allen ($5,800) and Royal ($4,400). Look at what Nelson and Cobb did. Detroit torched them without Calvin. Jets will be traveling across country – love the matchup.
Walker ($4,300). Really soft for this guy. He has been great all season.
Bennett ($6,000). His price tag has finally caught up with him. As long as Marshall is iffy though, it seems as Bennett is the main benefactor of those targets. Tough matchup this week though.
Donnell ($5,700). Think a ton of people will be on him, esp given his matchup. That said, the Falcons are bad on D and he is a matchup problem for anyone.
Cameron ($4,400). Guy has a ton of potential but hasn’t been able to stay healthy. He’s back now and has a good matchup.
Miller ($4,000). Good value for a guy going against a Jags D.
Daniels ($3,300). Pitta is out and Daniels had a decent outing this past week. Colts have struggled against the TE this year. Great value here.
