    Got 64.7 with Hoyer, Howard, Merideth and Miller left on FD $2 gpp. Lead has 87.82 with Miller left. liking the fact I only need 23+ with Hoyer, Howard and Meredith. Top 1000 only have Miller left.

    DK I am one of the 106 people tied for 1st and we all have Miller left. Have a bunch of lineups left with 67-78 points and 4 or 5 players left.

    I have a feeling the ATL/SD game will disappoint fantasy wise like the Giants/Saints game earlier this year. Bosa is a beast and SD could be able to stop the run and put pressure on Ryan. And SD offense isn’t that good.

    I wouldn’t count on the SD defense to slow down the possible MVP candidate to this point. Matt Ryan threw for 3 TDs against Seattle. Do you think the Charges defense slows him down really?

    Also there offense must not be too bad. Put up enough points on Broncos defense to beat them and have not had problems scoring this year. Especially with all of the injuries.. Only problem they have had is blowing lead in last 2 mins. If they could of just held onto their lead they would be sitting at a 5-1 record.

    Offense is not that good? They crushed the superbowl champs.

  • econbrah11

    If Bosa and the D line show up against Atlanta the score might not be as high as people think. Of course Atlanta can score 30+ points but I’m just saying don,t be surprised if they score in the low 20s and Ryan has 250 yards 2 TD 1 INT which isn’t that great.

    Should I stack coleman/freeman or ware/charles

    You can’t compare the NYG/Saints game to this one. For one, Brees isn’t on the road.

    Why ? Last year Eli was on the road and threw 6 TD. This year he threw 0 and he was at home. It works both ways. I’m not saying Matt Ryan will suck I’m just saying he could well disappoint in what seems to be a prime matchup, just like Brees/Eli earlier this year.

  • getlucky4

    Sd and atl also have terrible redzone defense which is also why the line is big probably.

    C’mon dude, he’s talking about Drew Brees home/away splits, not Eli’s. Games at the Superdome are way higher scoring than when they Saints play on the road. Last year’s game was in NO, this year the game was in NY.

    If you feel confident that the Falcons will fail in this spot, probably much more profitable to just bet the under than fade this game in DFS.

    I have 7 lineups with 49.8 points where I only used DJ and the Cards D so have 7 position players left to go.

    I’ll wave to you on my way by ;)

    Agree – the only thing I don’t like is SD’s pace as they use a lot of runs and TE passes that keep the clock moving.

    I don’t think this game will be a fantasy dud by any means but I think it is nonsense to stack 4 Falcons and 2 Chargers. It is not going to be 49-42.

    I’m just playing different combinations of 2-3 guys from the game.

  • RobertoTomba

    Jordan Reed (concussion) participated in individual drills Wednesday.
    It’s progress. Reed visited a specialist on Tuesday, and the Redskins have yet to rule him out for Week 7 against the Lions. Reed probably still has plenty of tests to pass. Consider him day to day and questionable for Sunday. Oct 19 – 1:51 PM

    This goes both ways. Of course, the well researched and more informed picks will do better in the long run, but there is merit to your initial “gut” picks as well. I always just put the “gut” initial picks in at least a few cheap GPPs so I can deal with it if they hit.

    For cash, I stick with research and get all the info I can. I still end up changing all the time. I rostered Vern Davis last second to fit in Brees and others I was comfortable with last week.

    I think a really good feature would be for FD and DK to allow you to name your lineups. That way you could easily group gut feel lineups and seperate them from your more researched lineups. I dont think this would be a difficult change to make and I think alot of players would really welcome it.

  • Fonz87

    Who will score the most fantasy points on DK this weekend in the main slate?

    JULIOOOOOOOO?! Or…..

  • B_rock74

    I have a cash game question. Say I like Cousins based on the over under and defensive matchup and the Washington offense is projected to score 3 TD’s. Would it make sens to pair him with Matt Jones to cover my basis on all the points Washington scores? On Fanduel their combined salary is 14K which means I am shooting for 35 points and if they score 3 TD’s I am likely to hit that number. It frees up salary so I can add some chalky good matchup plays but is it to much risk in cash if Washington does not hit that projected number?

  • dipjce

    you needed more points to cash the massive double up than milly maker. I actually prefer triple ups.

    Yeah my Bilal Powell 100% exposure is going to hurt.

  • getlucky4

    Matt Jones seems super risky to me. Detroit could get a lead and I think they don’t give up rushing TDs. I think you play cousins by himself.

    I feel you. I thought he could at least give us 10 and separate us from the field.

  • B_rock74

    I have actually been playing the 50/50 contest (100 people single entry) where the true 50% cash so not the double up.. I have been tracking it this year and the pay line is definitely lower than the double up. When doing cash games I avoid the larger multi-entry contests for the reason above. I feel last week was a little different based on the chalk plays hitting so you could almost predict it would be a higher scoring week in cash.

    The QB-RB stack in cash is usually a good play; I prefer to pair QB’s with RB’s who catch passes more than Jones (8 catches and 0 rec TD’s). I expect a Mariota-Murray pairing to do well this week; I know it’s more $$ but much more value especially if Murray was to catch a TD pass. Also Ryan with Coleman (or Freeman) is another where you’ll reap some double dip potential.

    I had a few each with Powell or Forte as I was trying to cover off different game flows but mostly just DJ alone and a RB from Thurs.

    Detroit allows a lot through the air, so expect those that benefit from the passing game to gain the most. Jones is not that guy. At worst, Matt Stafford has been keeping them in every game by throwing so much, so expect Cousins to keep pace.

    Detroit has also allowed only 1 rushing TD this year: a Case Keenum 1 yarder. This is more because they are so vulnerable to the passing game than any sort of rock-solid line play, but it’s worth noting.

    Aaron Rodgers is a bum. Fade away. Even if he’s forced to throw 50 times since they don’t have a RB on the roster, he can’t throw to his receivers, always behind them. Then, he get’s mad that they can’t catch the balls thrown behind them. The Dallas game showed just how off he’s been this year.

    Saying he’s been off is one thing. Saying he’s a bum is silly.
