So it appears that over the past few weeks that the one GPP lineup I offer up here is does bad, while my other ones do well. The worst part is that I usually feel the most confident about the one I submit here. Well with that kind of track record the past few weeks, we are going to change it up a little bit. Instead of writing about the one I have the most confidence in, I will use a different one that offers up similar upside, but I don't have as much confidence in a player or two of them. I still think this lineup I am listing below will be great, and I hope that it is. So without further rambling, let's get to the lineup.
Matt Ryan $7,800 and Julio Jones $9,100:
This is going to be my unorthodox stack of the week. While most people will be running with combinations off of David Carr, or Matthew Stafford, I am choosing to run a Falcons stack here. I really don't have to say much about Julio Jones, as he is always a threat to be the best receiver in any given week. Matt Ryan though does need a little bit of explanation. While the Falcons offense has been stalling the past few weeks, Ryan has actually been good. He has thrown for over 300 yards in each of the past 2 games, with nearly 400 in one of them. The Colts defense has been bad all year, allowing opposing QB's to put up good games against them. I see a huge game coming from Ryan, and Jones will be the one getting all of the work. Is 200 receiving yards and 2 TD's ever out of the question for Julio?
Charcandrick West $7,100:
A holdover from my cash game article. The Chargers have been awful defending opposing RB's, and that won't be stopping here. Of the 9 games the Chargers have played, in 7 of them they have allowed over 100 rushing yards to opposing RB's. West will be the next to join that group. He will be the highest owned RB on Sunday, but you need to have him because of how good he will be.
Mike Evans $8,000:
Again another player who was talked about it my cash game article. Evans has been getting the yardage necessary the last few weeks, its just that he needs to the TD's to go with it. I think this is the week we see Evans put it all together again, going for over 125 yards again, but this time scoring 2 TD's to go with it. The Bucs are playing against a terrible Eagles pass defense, and Winston keeps looking better with each passing week. Evans again will probably be higher owned then I would like, but the upside is great.
Sammy Watkins $6,600:
Let's get this straight, the Bills are going to be down in this game. The Patriots are just better than everyone, and will be scoring a lot of points on the Bills. This is great news, as that means they will need to throw the football to get back into the game. Watkins was shutdown last week, but that can be expected when he was covered by Revis the entire game. This matchup is a lot easier for him. Earlier in the year Watkins went for 60 yards and a TD, and he was playing hurt at the time. I think over 100 and a TD should easily be in store here, with upside for more.
Dan Bailey $4,600:
Its a kicker, don't put much thought into this. Bailey is cheap, and Romo is now back. The Cowboys play the Dolphins, and they have been allowing a lot of points this year. Bailey makes for a great play here, and hopefully the Cowboys stall out in the redzone a few times for Bailey to get some easy chip shots.
Coby Fleener $5,000:
So this was that pick I was talking about in the beginning. I really don't feel too comfortable with it, but I do recognize the upside with this pick. Fleener has been on the field for just under 70% of the plays, and that number was at 74% last week, with both him and Allen on the field and healthy. This means that the Colts are trying to get Fleener out there as much as they can, and when both him and Allen are in, Fleener will be the one running the routes. In the two games that Hasselbeck started, Fleener had one game of 18.8 points, and another one of 1.9 points. Here is to hoping that the 1.9 points was more of a product of playing on Thursday night, and not how little Hasselbeck will look for his TE. The Falcons also have been susceptible to the TE lately, giving up 5 TD's in the last 6 games to opposing TE's.
Seattle Seahawks $5,400:
I am taking full advantage of Blaine Gabbert with this pick. I don't think he is a good QB, and should be good for at least a few turnovers here. He faced a Falcons team that is struggling last week, and now he gets one of the best defenses in the league in the Seahawks. Expect to have the Seahawks sack and cause turnovers all game here, with a potential TD coming from it as well.
Danny Woodhead $6,400:
Well I had $6,400 left in salary, and Woodhead fit right in. In the Chargers last game, Woodhead was targeted 10 times, a trend that will continue this week. He is the best receiver on the team with all of the injuries they have had to the position. The fact that he is a RB doing this means you can count on him to get his touches. Woodhead while only being on the field for 57% of the plays in that game, he is making the most of that limited time. The Chargers will allow Rivers to throw the ball as much as he wants during games, and at this point Woodhead is one of the only guys he can trust.
