Quarterbacks 

Lamar Jackson ($7,400@ BUF – The front-runner for MVP is the definition of a cash game lock any week you can fit him in. Averaging 29.2 DK points per game, Lamar Jackson possesses a floor/ceiling combo the likes of which have never been seen. We are in the midst of 2 of the greatest fantasy seasons ever, between him and Christian McCaffrey, so, let us continue to bask in their infinite glory and accumulate fantasy points.

Jameis Winston ($6,400) vs IND – Jameis has been flames this year for fantasy, averaging nearly 22 FPPG. Now, he draws a depleted Colts team, at home in Tampa Bay, that’s been carved up by the likes of Ryan Tannehill, Nick Foles, and Ryan Fitzmagic in recent weeks. You can game stack this pretty easily and run it back with Doyle, Pascal, or Campbell – you just need to win the coin toss between Evans and Godwin.

Ryan Tannehill ($5,800) @ OAK –  Continue to stay in the flames with Tannewheels this week as he travels to the Black Hole to take on the Oakland Raiders, who are 4th in Points Allowed to QBs, averaging 21.8 FPPG. The fact that he’s still sub $6k and CHEAPER THAN DUCK HODGES is just disrespectful. Since assuming the starting role, the only QB averaging more fantasy points per game has been Lamar Jackson.


Running Backs 

Christian McCaffrey ($10,300) @ ATL – Just do it.

Derrick Henry ($8,200) @ OAK – As we enter December, the Tractor’s power only grows. He’s gone for 150+ yards in 3 straight and has 5 touchdowns in that span. With Humphries ruled out, AJ Brown recovering from a calf injury, and Tajae Sharpe questionable, the Tits could lean heavily on Henry against this Oakland team that’s frankly been embarrassed the last two weeks and may be without rookie Josh Jacobs. “But Austin! $8,200 for a back that doesn’t catch passes??” Listen. Do you like fantasy points? Do you like winning money? Play the Tractor.

Leonard Fournette ($7,800) vs LAC – Lenny continues to receive bell-cow treatment and is still in for some more positive TD regression, with only 3 on the season. He finally got into the end zone twice in week 12 and he should hit paydirt again this week at home against this deflated Chargers team. LAC is 8th in Points Allowed to RBs, averaging 20.6 FPPG.

Devonta Freeman ($5,400) vs CAR – If there were ever a week to play Devonta Freeman, it would be Week 14 in 2019. The Panthers are giving up the most points in the league to the RB position, averaging 25.8 FPPG. Last game back, Freeman had 17 totes and 5 targets, so he should smash this price if he sees that type of usage again against this Carolina defense.


Wide Receivers 

DJ Moore ($7,000) @ ATL – Since Week 9, Moore has been an absolute star, averaging 11.4 targets and 103.4 ypg with 3 touchdowns. With River Boat Ron out of the picture, it’s hard to envision this Panthers offense changing much, CMC and Moore should remain the focal points. The Falcons are top 10 in PA to WRs, averaging 25.1 FPPG.

AJ Brown ($5,300) @ OAK – Brown appears to be good-to-go now after suffering a calf injury earlier in the week. Brown is a monster with the ball in his hands and 287 of his 626 receiving yards have come after the catch. The Raiders are 11th in PA to WRs, averaging 24.2 FPPG. Humphries has been ruled out and Tajae Sharpe is questionable, so he and Corey Davis could be in for a few more targets, making for a nice cheap stack with Tannehill.

Robby Anderson ($5,100) vs MIA – Whatever was wrong with Robby Anderson to start the year, he’s over it now. He’s seen 15 targets in his last two games and has 197 yards and a touchdown. Now, he goes home to face the Miami Dolphins, who are 3rd in PA to opposing WRs, surrendering 27.4 points per game.

Mike Williams ($4,500) @ JAX – I haven’t played Mike Williams for 13 weeks to stop now. I don’t think it’s a matter of IF Mike will finally get into the end-zone this week, but a matter of how MANY times he’ll score. Surely, positive regression has got to come into effect at some point in the year, right? RIGHT? Anyways, I’m all in. The Jags have been gutted since Ramsey left and Foles has returned to the bench in favor of Beowulf in a lost season. Although Rivers has been lookin’ washed, Mike’s seen 13 targets and amassed 193 yards in his last two games. Maybe we get lucky and see some Tygod Taylor? Fingers crossed.

Parris Campbell ($3,200) @ TB – I actually feel confident enough in Campbell this week to play him in cash at only $3,200 against TB with Ebron and Hilton out. Prior to injury, in his last outing he jumped up to 62% of the snaps and caught 5 of 5 for 53 yards and had 3 rushing attempts for another 27 yds. TB is 1st in PA to WRs, averaging 31.3 FPPG. This could be the Parris Campbell breakout we’ve been waiting for.


Tight Ends 

Jack Doyle ($4,600) @ TB –  I’m playing Doyle in tournaments, personally, strictly due to his price. He could legit see 15 targets in this game against the Bucs, who are 2nd in PA to TEs, avg. 10.6 FPPG. In an expanded role last week, Doyle caught 6 of 11 targets for 73 and a tuddy.

Vance McDonald ($4,300) @ ARI – This is your flowchart play of the week against the Cardinals, but honestly I don’t know how many people will be doing the Vance Dance with Thomas nearly $2k cheaper and Doyle only $300 more. This could make for an interesting tournament option.

Ian Thomas ($2,500) @ ATL – With Olsen ruled out, this is the min-priced chalk donkey play of the week you just gotta roll out in your cash games. The savings he offers compared to Vance and Doyle is just too great to ignore. Thomas is an exceptional athlete and is best comparable to Austin Hooper. In his 10 games last year, he averaged 8.1 FPPG.


Defenses 

Titans ($2,600) @ OAK – Defenses are pretty gross this week and I don’t feel particularly well about any team below the Titans at $2,600. The Raiders have only scored 1 touchdown (12 total points) the last 2 weeks against the Jets and Chiefs. Yikes. They could also be down workhorse rookie RB Josh Jacobs, who’s been playing with a fractured shoulder? The Titans could get out to an early lead and just run it down their throats with the Tractor, which makes for a nice correlation play.
