In my lone FanDuel lineup I tried to find a way to get Julian Edelman in there but I couldn’t fit both him and Rob Gronkowski without making a much weaker lineup than I would like.
I’ll have more lineups at Draft Kings and I’ll definitely have Edelman in a handful there. There’s also extra incentive there because we get a full point per reception.
I did however manage to get Brandon LaFell in that FanDuel LU. The Patriots are expected to go bananas, I want to have a couple pieces of that cake.
I’m also really pushing to get Randall Cobb in my lineups. Cobb is a smaller receiver which has posed problems for the Seahawks in the past. It doesn’t show up in the Defense-adjusted Value Over Averages or fantasy points allowed, but DeSean Jackson, Emmanuel Sanders and Odell Beckham Jr. — all 5-foot-11 or shorter — gave the Seahawks fits this season. They’ve shut down every receiver they’ve faced since OBJ’s 7-108 line against them in Week 10, but they also haven’t faced an offense even remotely as talented as Green Bay since then either.
I’ll have some Jermaine Kearse, Donte Moncrief and Ricardo Lockette sprinkled into my lineups at Draft Kings.
