I cringed a bit when I saw the final tight end projections.
It’s difficult for me to recommend Jimmy Graham, even though the machine says I should. He’s just disappointed so much over the last few weeks.
Obviously, you can’t bench him in season long, especially not against the Bears defense which has been the worst this season against the tight end.
But in DFS, I’m looking elsewhere and I’m not going to pay up for Rob Gronkowski either. Gronk is 2-TDs-and-150-yards-waiting-to-happen, but it’s a poor matchup this week. I’m going to take my chances with mid-priced and low-priced options.
Like Kelvin Benjamin, I think Greg Olsen is a decent play despite the Panthers losing Cam Newton to injury. Derek Anderson was decent as an injury replacement in Week 1 and Tampa Bay’s defense can be attacked.
If you believe Johnny Manziel is going to light the NFL on fire, Jordan Cameron is almost a must-start. I’ll have a share or two of Manziel and Cameron, but I’m a little concerned this might be a tough first start of the rookie signal caller.
I’ll probably have mostly Delanie Walker, Larry Donnel and Julius Thomas in my DFS lineups this week.
I really like Thomas. His salary has dropped quite a bit and the Broncos haven’t highlighted him in quite a while. Peyton likes to keep his pass-catchers happy.
