We are back with another GPP lineup for you this week. Last week's GPP lineup was just awful, as I didn't put DeAngelo Williams in it, and only used him in cash games. This week we are hopefully not making that same mistake again. The theory this week is put in those guys you expect to go big, and find a couple other players who could potentially seperate you from the rest of the entries. Now let's get into the picks.
Blake Bortles $7,800 and Allen Robinson $7,500:
My stack for this week is going with the Jaguars against a horrible Ravens pass defense. Allen Robinson has been playing like one of the top receivers in the league the last four weeks, and won't have trouble keeping that going. Bortles has also been great over that span, and has been throwing for at least 2 TD's in each of his last 4 games. Bortles has legitimate upside to throw for around 350 yards and 4 TD's in this game, with 2 of those scores going to Robinson as he accumulates 150+ yards in the process.
Rob Gronkowski $8,000:
He has to have a big game here soon right? Until he has a vintage Gronk game, I am going to continue playing him waiting for it to happen. Dion Lewis is out for the year, which opens up a few targets for everyone in the Patriots offense. I think Gronk may benefit the most from Lewis being out, as I don't know if Brandon Bolden or James White are ready to step into that role yet. The Giants have been awful on defense, and especially bad defending TE's, making this a great opportunity for Gronk to have one of his multi-TD games.
DeAngelo Williams $7,600:
Will Williams be high owned? Yes he will, but I don't care. Williams as the starter in this Steelers offense is just too good to pass up. While I doubt he has a week like last week, he doesn't need to to be one of the top backs again. Over 100 yards should be easy for him against the Browns, and he also has a great chance at multiple TD's. As the starter, Williams is averaging 26.8 FanDuel points per game. Over that three game span he also has 5 TD's, and two games of 100+ rushing yards. I think he can keep on going along as a top back you don't have to pay elite prices for.
Chris Boswell $4,500:
Another player I mentioned in my cash game picks. Even with Landry Jones, the Steelers will be moving the ball easily against the Browns. He is the minimum price, and has shown to be a good kicker since signing mid-season. I like him more then most of the kickers, so getting him at the minimum price helps me assemble the rest of my roster, and spend up at my next position.
Denver Broncos Defense $5,200:
The last time the Broncos faced the Chiefs, they scored 22 points. Alex Smith just isn't a good QB, so the opportunity for a big scoring game is possible. The Broncos defense has been a little down the past couple games, but that is because they have been playing some elite QB's in that span. Expect that defense to get back on track here and make Alex Smith look as mediocre as he really is.
DeSean Jackson $6,000:
Pure upside play. The downside to this pick is what Jackson did last week, put up only 3 points. The upside though is that of 100+ yards and 2 TD's. The matchup is setup perfectly for Jackson to break some big plays. The Saints have been awful on defense, and don't look to be fixing it anytime soon. Last week was Jackson's first game back since getting hurt early in the season. Even with last week being his first game back, he was on the field for 84% of the plays. That number shows you how much the Redskins desperately need Jackson on the field, as they just don't trust any of the other guys beside Jordan Reed. Probably will be higher owned then I would like, but the upside is great at this price point.
Randall Cobb $7,700:
Another defense that has been poor this year is the Detroit Lions. While they have been middle of the road at defending opposing receivers, that is because the Lions haven't had that one big blow up game yet. I think that game is going to happen this week. Aaron Rodgers looked to be gaining his form again in the second half of last week's game against the Panthers, who have a much better defense then the Lions. Cobb showed us last week that he is still capable of putting up a nice performance. This week could be his big breakthrough to get him back on track as that top 10 receiver we all expected him to be before the season.
Ryan Mathews $5,600:
The last pick for my team is a guy who isn't even a starter. I think Chip Kelly at some point has to realize that Mathews is the best back he currently has on his roster, and when that happens, he will put up some great numbers. Even if that isn't this week, the big play potential he possess is enough for me to trust him in my GPP lineup. The Dolphins have had one of the worst run defenses so far this year, and the Eagles love to run the ball. Something close to 15 touches for Mathews is plenty for him to do some damage, as we have seen so far this year. Hopefully Mathews will be the difference between my lineup and others that may have a lot of the similar players before. Come on Chip Kelly help me out this one week and let Mathews free for once.
