I did not win any money in Week 5 of the NFL but I almost won 1st place in a FanDuel GPP two weeks ago. I would have won it all with a Mark Ingram touchdown vs. the Cowboys but the ref reviewed the touchdown and called it back.
It was a true heartbreak but life goes on and I realize the refs are a part of the game.
Who expected Josh McCown to help a guy win a GPP last week?
I would not want any part of McCown this week though against a great Denver defense.
QBs: I have had Aaron Rodgers in lineups every week and it hasn't paid off yet but I will definitely have him in some lineups this week against the Chargers defense.
The Chargers have given up 28, 24, 31,27, and 24 points so far in 5 games. You can expect the Packers will get over 24 points this week and I am banking on Rodgers to have a part in that.
Colin Kaepernick is a cheap QB this week and he goes up against a bad Ravens pass D at home.
RBs: How can I not select Arian Foster in my lineup this week against a Jaguars defense that allowed Doug Martin to have a monster game last week?
Eddie Lacy should be a good pick this weekend too against the lowly Chargers run defense. The Chargers give up 5.1 yards per rush and Lacy will run through them for a few touchdowns.
Detroit has given up 8 TDs to RBs this season so Matt Forte has a great chance to get one TD this week as well.
WRs: You may have heard that Sammy Watkins is demanding the ball and wants more than 10 targets per game. This doesn't mean he will get his wish though as the Bills don't have a great passing QB right now on the roster. Watkins is cheap though at 6300 and worth a flyer on a GPP lineup.
I have Kap in a few GPP lineups and I am pairing him up with either Torrey Smith or Anquan Bouldin. Bouldin is 6200 and I like both WRs.
TEs: I got burned last week with Rob Gronkowski but I am taking him again this week because I expect him to have a monster game and hopefully two TDs against the Colts.
Ks: I like Stephen Gostkowski this week since I expect the Pats to be in the red zone often.
D: I got to roll with the Jets here against the lowly Redskins and Kirk Cousins.
