As I have done the past three weeks, it is time to unveil a GPP Lineup I am using this week. The key for this week is finding a couple of value plays, that way you can pay up and get a few studs into that lineup. We are looking for upside with these picks for the most part, as that is how you win big. The order that I am writing about the guys below is the order in which I inserted them in my lineup.
Eli Manning $7,800 and Odell Beckham Jr. $9,100:
Let's start with the mini-stack of the week for me. Beckham has been playing like the best receiver in the NFL the last few weeks, and I don't see that slowing down here. The Eagles is a matchup that doesn't scare me here. Eli Manning has been able to build upon his good season from last year. I expect this to be one of the more popular tournament stacks, but its for a good reason. There is some serious upside here, as we have seen the Eagles in the past get thrown all over.
Robbie Gould $4,500:
Might as well get my minimum priced kicker in the lineup early. I see the Bears scoring this week, which leads me to my next pick.
Martellus Bennett $5,800:
The Lions have allowed a TD to a Tight End in all but one week so far this season. Bennett is a great TE, and has been put up some great games with Jay Cutler. While his injury in practice on Thursday may scare people away, I am sticking with him. This injury will bring down his ownership, but I don't believe it will actually hinder his game. Should score at least one TD, and after that we may see a 80 yard 2 TD performance.
Brandon Marshall $8,000:
I put Marshall in my cash game picks, and I think everything I said there still works for GPP's. Great matchup, and has been playing better then anyone would have thought. The Redskins have looked bad defending the pass. Fitzpatrick has been doing his part in getting the ball out to Marshall, and letting him do all the work.
New York Jets Defense $4,800:
I am going to continue picking on Kirk Cousins. He isn't a good QB, and has had problems with turnovers in his career. While the Jets aren't the Broncos, they possess the upside of turning in a great performance here.
Arian Foster $8,500:
Last week we saw what a healthier Foster can do. That game was all the way back on Thursday of last week, giving Foster ample time to continue getting healthier. Well the matchup this week is golden for him to put up that monster effort. We just saw Doug Martin obliterate the Jaguars run defense, and I think we can all agree that Foster is better than Martin. The huge Foster breakout will happen this week, so get on board.
DeVante Parker $5,000:
My swing for the fence pick this week. I am taking a huge gamble by rostering him, as his downside is realistically zero points. The upside however is greater then what his raw points may say at the end of the day. I would be shocked if he is owned by too many people this week. I do see an increase in his plays, and the targets he gets. The matchup against the Titans is good enough for me to think Parker can get catch a few bombs in this game.
LeGarrette Blount $6,500:
After the players I rostered above, I had $6,500 left for my 2nd RB. I had to choose between Jeremy Hill and LeGarrette Blount. While I do think Blount will be owned by more people this week, the matchup dictates that. I would much rather have my RB that is going up against the Colts then the Bills. We saw Jonas Gray dominate the Colts last week, so why can't Blount do the same. As I said will be high owned, but if he does indeed put up that big week, I don't want to miss out on it.
