Saturday Update - DFS Plays for Week 5 include Ben Roethlisberger / Rashad Jennings

Jason Singh

Saturday Update:

Top News:

Drew Stanton (QB - ARZ) - With the news Friday that Carson Palmer will continue to sit on the bench due to his nerve issues, Stanton is in a great position to exceed his fantasy daily market value when visiting Denver tomorrow in what could turn out to be a high scoring game.  Head coach Bruce Arians is never shy about having his QB throw the deep ball and he will have to against Peyton Manning's high flying offense.  The well-traveled yet savvy Stanton has gone undefeated since take over for Palmer and after looking a little shaky against the NY Giants in Week 2, he looked very strong against SF in Week 3 as he threw for 244 yards and two TDs in a solid divisional victory.  Another factor to consider is Denver's underperforming secondary which is ranked 31st against the pass - yielding 300 yards per game!  If you are looking to load up on high priced players at other roster slots and jonesing for a value, this is a good place to look.

Reggie Bush (RB - DET) - Joique Bell's struggles with getting cleared from his concussion have continued to linger to the point that he has been ruled out of this Sunday's game against Buffalo.  His health woes have cleared the way for Bush to have a big game as the featured back in a much anticipated home game.  After a very quiet start to the season, Bush has increased his productivity the last two weeks with 107 yards rushing, one TD and 10 catches for 57 yards.  With Detroit offensive coordinator Joe Lombardi telling the local Detroit media that Bush will get a heavier workload if Bell is out, Bush may be a steal for his modest price on most fantasy dailies.

Stock Up:

Niles Paul (TE - WAS) - Paul was one of the hottest TEs in the game until he was knocked silly on a play against the NY Giants a week from last Thursday which resulted in him suffering a concussion and missing the second half.  He has since passed the NFL concussion protocol and practiced fully Friday which is great news since it has also been reported that Jordan Reed may not be ready to return tomorrow against Seattle because of lingering hamstring issues.  Reed has been limited in practice so even if he does return, he will not be 100%.  Seattle is hell on opposing wide receivers so it is imperative that Paul is involved to give Washington a fighting chance. 

Ben Tate (RB - CLE) - The injury prone one is set to return after dealing with a knee problem first suffered in the season opener against Pittsburgh.  As much of a joke as Cleveland's offense has been for most of the last decade, offensive coordinator Kyle Shanahan and QB Brian Hoyer have instilled some life into a unit that has put up decent production through the first quarter of the season.  Tate will obviously split carries with rookies Terrence West and Isaiah Crowell, but should be the lead back and have the highest upside.  He faces a 22nd ranked Tennessee run defense which is yielding 127 yards per game so for his minimal price tag in most fantasy dailies, he could prove to be a steal.

Darrin Reaves (RB - CAR) - Due to an unbelievable rash of injuries, the undrafted free agent rookie from UAB has a solid chance to contribute tomorrow against a Chicago run defense which is ranked in the bottom half of the league (yielding 122.5 rushing yard per game).  Reaves will share the load with banged up Fozzy Whitaker (whose value has jumped up too and he may have the edge over Reaves because of his experience) and new acquisition Chris Ogbonnaya.  The Panthers backfield is a mess but Reaves has the highest upside of the three backs and could pay off big as a cheap value.

Stock Down:

Jordan Cameron (TE - CLE) - Cameron is listed as probable for tomorrow's tilt against Tennessee but it was confirmed this past week that he has been dealing with a AC joint sprain in his shoulder since the season opener and will have to deal with it the rest of the season.  Cameron has been injury prone during his short career so this is the latest of several obstacles that he has and will overcome.  One direct hit could end his season which makes us think he is not worth the considerably higher price tag he is still sporting in all fantasy dailies.

Calvin Johnson (WR -DET) - Johnson has been dealing with an ankle injury for a few weeks and it doesn't seem to be getting better.  Several media outlets have been reporting that the team is legitimately thinking of sitting him down tomorrow against Buffalo just so that he can recover.  Last week against the NY Jets, he participated in about half the team's offensive snaps and was essentially playing every other down and when he did play, he was essentially a decoy which enabled Golden Tate to explode for a nice game.  He will be a game-time decision but even if he toughs it out, he may not be worth his price tag.

Vernon Davis (SF - TE) - Davis was able to return last Sunday against Philly after missing the previous week in Arizona due to a sprained ankle suffered in Week 2.  Unfortunately for Davis, he was absolutely blasted in the back by Philly LB DeMeco Ryans and forced to leave the contest.  The injury looked very scary but Davis played it down in the days following the game as he said he was just suffering from back spasms.  Whatever his ailment is, he did not practice at all this week and will be a game-time decision for SF's battle against Kansas City. 

Quarterbacks - Featured site is FanDuel

Fantistics Top 5 QBs:
1. Drew Brees
2. Aaron Rodgers
3. Peyton Manning
4. Ben Roethlisberger
5. Kirk Cousins

Top Play:

Drew Brees (NO) - Brees will be glad to be returning to the confines of the Superdome after playing three of his first four games on the road thus far.  In his lone appearance at home in Week 3 against Minnesota, he threw 27 of 35 for 293 yards, two TDs and no INTs - the only game he has thrown no INTs in this year.  He has thrown for 300+ yards in two of four games this year, but it is true that he hasn't truly exploded for that signature fantasy performance he always seems to have.  Why are the odds good he will strike it big this Sunday?  In his last nine games in NO, he has thrown 29 TD passes which includes six games of at least 3+ TD passes!  He faces a Tampa Bay team which is coming off a surprise win on the road in Pittsburgh but still carries the 30th ranked pass defense in the league.  The last time he played Tampa Bay at home, Brees threw for 381 yards and four TDs!  These division rivals do know each other well but Tampa Bay hasn't been able to stop anyone this year, and NO is coming off a very embarrassing loss against Dallas last Sunday night in front of a national TV audience so there is nothing Brees wants more than to light it up like he has done most of his career.  He does come with a high price in all fantasy dailies but he is the closest thing to a QB lock this week in terms of production.

Values:

Ben Roethlisberger (PIT) - Big Ben got the short end of the stick last Sunday against Tampa Bay in an upset loss but his numbers were strong as he threw 29 of 40 for 314 yards, three TDs and zero INTs - his best statistical performance of the year.  While offensive coordinator Todd Haley gets a lot of blame for his fiery temper and stubborn ways, his implementation of a quick passing game has developed nicely as Roethlisberger is standing upright a lot more than when he took deeper drops and had to connect with his receivers on time consuming double moves, etc.  Antonio Brown has developed into one of the best receivers in the league, Heath Miller is healthy and catching almost everything thrown his way in the middle of the field and youngsters like Markus Wheaton and Le'Veon Bell have added dimensions to the offense that have forced defenses to react rather than attack.  Big Ben faces a struggling Jacksonville defense which is ripe for the picking as the Jags are ranked dead last against the pass - giving up 344.3 yards per game - and are winless on the year.

Russell Wilson (SEA) - Wilson has probably been salivating the last week and a half knowing that he is going to face a decimated and vulnerable Washington defense this Sunday.  Before his bye week in Week 4, Wilson displayed remarkable consistency through his first three games as he threw for two TDs in each outing.  He is averaging only 217 passing yards per game which will pretty much always be the case as Seattle's offense is based on the great running of Marshawn Lynch with the passing game built off of play action.  There is usually no need for Wilson to air it out but because of his efficiency, he is always a solid play for two TD passes and 200 passing yards.  Washington was just dismantled by the NY Giants last Thursday night as Kirk Cousins threw the golden sombrero while Washington couldn't stop anyone on defense.  With a much better offense and defense facing them now, Washington could get routed easily unless Seattle is somehow rusty coming off its bye.

Andy Dalton (CIN) - There was no team that was probably watching last Monday's game between KC and NE closer than the Bengals since they will be traveling to Foxborough this coming Sunday night.  Like all of us, the Bengals saw the Patriots absolutely thrashed on both sides of the ball.  The NE offense has struggled every time out this year but their woes are starting to fester onto the defensive side of the ball.  If not for a penalty late in Week 3's game against Oakland, the Raiders would have taken a late lead and possibly scored a major upset so NE's struggles aren't new.  There is no better time for Dalton to strike the Pats than right now while they are reeling as Dalton is fresh coming off a bye and there is little concern of any rust affecting him.  So far this year, Cincy's defense and running game has carried the team so Dalton is due to break out.  With AJ Green healthy, Mohamed Sanu having emerged as a strong complement and the receiving ability of Gio Bernard, offensive coordinator Hue Jackson has the tools to be aggressive and keep the Pats on their collective heels.

On the Fence:

Eli Manning (NYG) - After a dreaded start to the season that saw him throw four INTs in his first two games, Eli has turned it around the last two weeks while leading his team to two straight victories.   In his last game against Washington last Thursday night, he threw for 300 yards, four TDs and even ran in one TD.  The new offense implemented by Bill McAdoo seems to be taking hold so this Sunday marks another potentially strong performance against a soft Atlanta defense which was just run over by rookie QB Teddy Bridgewater.  Atlanta's pass defense ranks 29th against the pass as it yields 282.8 yards per game.  The Giants have flopped before when being favorites at home but Atlanta hasn't been able to stop anyone this year so Manning will be the beneficiary - particularly with the emergence of TE Larry Donnell and the recent strong play of Rueben Randle who has caught 13 passes the last two weeks.

Other Values:

Tony Romo (DAL), Mike Glennon (TB) and Austin Davis (STL).  For the first time all year, Romo looked like the Romo of old in terms of health last Sunday night against NO.  Not only was he on target with most of his passes, he even jaunted for a career high rush of 21 yards.  Romo and the Dallas offense are on a roll as he has thrown five TDs versus just one INT the last two weeks and next plays against a Houston D that really hasn't been tested by a high powered offense yet this year...Glennon had a great game against Pittsburgh last Sunday on the road as he led his team to a last second victory with a TD throw to Vincent Jackson.  He plays next against New Orleans in a game that could very well turn into a shootout.  He threw for 219 yards and two TDs the last time he played in the Superdome against a Saints team that was playing a lot better last year than it is now...Davis is our super sleeper of the week as he travels to Philly to play the high powered Eagles.  The Rams are a desperate team following their choke job against Dallas in Week 3 and will pull out all the stops to salvage a season many pundits believed was over as soon as Sam Bradford was ruled out for the year.  Davis threw for 327 yards against Dallas in Week 3 so he has the arm to put up some numbers and there is no better time than this Sunday against a team that is an elite scoring machine.

Running Back - Featured site is DraftKings

Fantistics Top 5 RBs:
1. LeSean McCoy
2. Matt Forte
3. Eddie Lacy
4. Rashad Jennings
5. Le'Veon Bell

Top Plays:

LeSean McCoy (PHI):  You might have first reacted with surprise by seeing McCoy's name at the top of this list given his recent struggles but when factoring in who the Eagles play this Sunday and McCoy's history, it shouldn't be that surprising.  McCoy's fantasy daily value has taken a slight dip which benefits those owners who are looking to fit him in their lineups with other value plays.  McCoy plays against the 30th ranked run defense of St Louis which was last seen getting run over by DeMarco Murray in Week 3.  The Rams are yielding over 155 rushing per game which must be music to McCoy's ears as the talented RB is coming off playing against a killer 49ers run defense which is yielding just 69.8 yards per game.  Philly QB Nick Foles did not look sharp against SF which could partly be blamed on being banged up but the running game needs to be cranked up.  To their credit, the Eagles have not stopped feeding the ball to McCoy despite his struggles which will pay off because you can't keep a talented back down for long.

Matt Forte (CHI): After getting blasted on the ground by two stellar run defenses in San Francisco and the NY Jets, Forte finally got back on track against Green Bay last Sunday by rushing 23 times for 122 yards.  Interestingly, he has not scored a rushing TD (or receiving TD) all year but is a great bet to break through against a Carolina defense which has not played close to the level it did last year and has allowed three rushing TDs over the last two games and over 140 yards on the ground.  Forte also continues to be a great source of receptions and receiving yards - averaging six catches for 48.5 yards per outing.  Chicago has to be careful being too one-dimensional which doomed itself last Sunday against Green Bay as Jay Cutler threw some terrible passes in the second half.  Chicago will get back on track riding the back of Forte.

Value Plays:

Zac Stacy (STL):  After starting the season with a dud against Minnesota, Stacy has quietly put up decent numbers his last two games.  Against Tampa Bay in Week 2 he rushed 19 times for 71 and one TD, and against Dallas in Week 3 he rushed 12 times for 67 yards.  While not eye popping, he averaged 4.5 yards per carry which is very strong.  He next plays Philadelphia's 26th ranked run defense which was abused by Frank Gore last Sunday.  This game has a strong chance to be high scoring which is great news for a back like Stacy who just needs a certain amount of touches to eventually break a big play.  Philly has notoriously gotten off to slow starts this year while St. Louis has gotten off to great starts, so something has to give this Sunday.

Doug Martin (TB):  After suffering an injury in the season opener against Carolina, Martin finally returned to the lineup this past Sunday against Pittsburgh and rushed for his first TD of the year.  Martin hit hard times last year after a brilliant rookie campaign so a lot of analysts out there are wondering if he is a one hit wonder.  That is definitely a possibility but we feel he has a lot left to give, especially against a NO run defense which is ranked 21st in the league (yielding over 123 yards per game!).  It should be noted that even though Martin struggled through an injury marred and disappointing 2013, he did rush for 144 yards in the one game he did play against NO.  The TB-NO game has the potential to be high scoring which is good news for all skill position players involved. 

Upside Plays:  Ahmad Bradshaw (IND) - How is this for a stat line?  Bradshaw has four receiving TDs and no rushing TD so far this year.  When is the last time you heard of a running back with stats like that?  Bradshaw is only averaging slightly above eight carries per game as Trent Richardson continues to garner most of the work, but Bradshaw is cashing in on the passing game - averaging 3.5 receptions, 33.5 yards per game and one TD per outing.  I wouldn't expect him to continue scoring every game, but with Baltimore's 7th ranked rushing defense coming up next, Andrew Luck will be playing a lot of spread formation.  LeGarrette Blount (PIT) - Pittsburgh is set to play a rookie QB in Blake Bortles this Sunday which will have its blitz happy LBs excited beyond belief.  Jacksonville for the most part this year has simply not been competitive and there is no reason to think that will change.  There is a very high probability that Pittsburgh will dominate which will allow Blount a lot of cleanup work - including more than his usual amount of carries and most likely goal line opportunities.  When a team gets up by a certain amount of points, there is nothing it likes better than running the clock out which happens to be Blount's specialty.  Khiry Robinson (NO) - Robinson was the main guy in the NO backfield last Sunday night against Dallas and he played well which indicates he should be the main guy again this Sunday against a horrific Tampa Bay defense.  Against Dallas, he rushed eight times for 87 yards including a 62-yard spree which gave NO slight hopes of a potential rally.  In Week 3, he rushed 18 times for 69 yards, so he has been playing well in lieu of Mark Ingram's injury.  Pierre Thomas was expected to take on the lion's share of the backfield load with Ingram out but Robinson has more than done enough to maintain his position.

Wide Receivers - Featured site is DraftDay

Fantistics Top 5 WRs:
1. Antonio Brown
2. Calvin Johnson
3. DeMaryius Thomas
4. Dez Bryant
5. Alshon Jeffery

Top Play:      

Antonio Brown (PIT):  Brown has been absolutely unstoppable this year and there is no reason for anything to change this Sunday when the Steelers travel to pathetic Jacksonville.  Brown has caught at least five passes in an NFL record 20 consecutive games!  Talk about automatic in PPR leagues!  He has scored four TDs in his last two games along with 17 receptions for 221 yards.  With Pittsburgh getting dynamic run production from Le'Veon Bell and receiving help from Heath Miller and Markus Wheaton, opposing defenses are having trouble corralling the speedy Brown who despite his size, is Steve Smith-tough with even better hands.  Oh yeah and one other thing, Jacksonville is ranked dead last against the pass as it is yielding over 344 yards per game, so his daily price tag is well worth it this Sunday.

Value Plays:

Steve Smith (BAL): Smith took it to his old team last Sunday as he showed he is not over the hill by any means.  The 14 year receiver has three 100 yard receiving games and three TDs and next plays an Indianapolis pass defense which is ranked 21st in the league despite having an easy time against Jacksonville and Tennessee the last two weeks.  Joe Flacco and Smith have built a strong rapport very quickly which is great news for Steve's owners but not Torrey Smith's owners.  Smith has displayed strong consistency through the first quarter of the season but still maintains a reasonable price tag on most fantasy dailies so don't fall for the Andrew Luck will smoke the Ravens' line of thinking.  The Colts have their problems against good defenses and Smith is too red hot not to pick up.

Percy Harvin (SEA):  Harvin has gotten off to a good start in Seattle as offensive coordinator Darrell Bevell has shown various ways on how it plans to use the speedy receiver.  Aside from running his normal pass routes, he is being used in the backfield extensively which he is excelling at.  Through three games, he has caught 15 passes for 106 yards and rushed six times for 86 yards and one TD.  Harvin's explosive ability is such that even if he touches the ball a few times, he is a good bet for a long score or big yards.  Now, Seattle will never be mistaken for a 300-yard a game passing offense, but it is probably the most explosive offense in the league in terms of big plays which is influenced by Marshawn Lynch.  Opposing teams are so concerned with stopping Lynch, Russell Wilson's ability to play action is mesmerizing to watch.  It isn't so mesmerizing for defensive backs that have to account for the game breaking Harvin, so an 18th ranked Washington pass defense will definitely have its hands full this Sunday.

Upside Plays:

Victor Cruz (NYG) - Although he was unable to join the scoring parade against Washington last Thursday, Cruz put up nice numbers and could make a great play this Sunday against Atlanta given that his fantasy daily price tag has taken a dip this year.  Over the last two weeks, the light has turned on for the NY Giants and their new offensive scheme as Eli Manning and the bunch have cranked out the production.  Over the last two weeks, Cruz has caught 11 passes for 215 yards and one TD!  He next plays an Atlanta team that simply cannot play defense its life.  Markus Wheaton (PIT) - Wheaton is starting to emerge as an explosive counterpart to Antonio Brown.  In recent weeks, not only has he put up some respectable numbers, but Ben Roethlisberger is starting to look his way because he is starting to trust the second year player.  He is averaging almost five catches and 57 yards per game but has no TDs.  A game against the lowly Jacksonville Jaguars could be what he needs to finally reach the end zone. Kelvin Benjamin (CAR) - Over the last couple of weeks, Benjamin is showing he has the skills to be a big time player in this league.  He has displayed ridiculous ball skills and body control while his size makes him almost impossible to cover one on one.  With Carolina's running game invisible due to injuries and overall suckage, Cam Newton will have to keep cranking out the ball and Benjamin will be the key beneficiary.  Benjamin has three TDs in four games and is averaging 82 yards receiving per outing!  He faces a Chicago team that would still be giving up TD passes to Aaron Rodgers if the game wasn't stopped.

Could Surprise Plays:

DeAndre Hopkins (HOU) - The second  year receiver has quietly scored three TDs in four games and next plays a Dallas team in what could very well end up in a shootout.  Mohamed Sanu (CIN) - The surprising receiver has a good shot to continue his productive ways against New England this Sunday.  NE will be focused on stopping AJ Green and the Bengals' potent running attack so Sanu will see a lot of one on one coverage.  He has proven he can make plays in this situation so all eyes will be on Andy Dalton's pocket presence.

Tight Ends - Featured site is FantasyAces

Fantistics Top 5 TEs:
1. Jimmy Graham
2. Julius Thomas
3. Travis Kelce
4. Larry Donnell
5. Martellus Bennett

Top Play:

Jimmy Graham (NO) - Despite the hefty price tag in all fantasy dailies, Graham keeps showing why he is indeed so valuable.  Although he was invisible for most of the first three quarters, he ended up catching eight catches for 86 yards and one TD against Dallas.  He has caught three TDs in his last three games.  He next plays a porous Tampa Bay defense at home in the Superdome which as we all know is a place where Drew Brees has thrown 29 TD passes in his last nine games.  Also consider that in his last two games against Tampa Bay, he caught 15 passes for 250 yards and two TDs!

Value Plays: 

Travis Kelce (KC) - Kelce has been one of the more popular players in the fantasy world as of late due to his increase involvement in the KC offense which was on full display this past Monday against NE.  He caught a team high eight passes for 93 yards and one TD.  The most impressive thing about his performance was the fact that he caught a lot of his passes at or behind the line of scrimmage which caused him to use his athleticism to follow blocks and make yards.  First of all, I don't think most analysts knew he had moves like that and now that we all do, we understand how big he could be in this offense.  He has two TDs in his last two games and has a good chance to score again this week against SF - a team with a great run defense but a suspect pass defense.

Delanie Walker (TEN) - Walker has been a pleasant fantasy surprise this year and his good fortune should continue this week against a soft 28th ranked Cleveland pass defense.  Despite having Charlie Whitehurst starting in place of the injured Jake Locker, he still caught five passes for 84 yard and one TD.  Yeah, most of his production was accumulated in garbage time, but he has continued to out-produce Kendall Wright and Justin Hunter, something no one thought he would be capable of doing.    Walker has scored in three of four games and should have Locker back in the starting lineup so expect the athletic tight end's productivity to continue.

Heath Miller (PIT) - After a quiet start to the season, Miller has rounded into form and had a big impact the last two weeks.  Against Carolina and Tampa Bay, he caught 14 passes for 136 yards and one TD.  Ben Roethlisberger has always used Miller as his security blanket which was obvious when you watched him throw to Miller consistently on third down last Sunday against Tampa Bay.  Historically, whenever Pittsburgh is in the red zone Big Ben primarily looks at either Antonio Brown (formerly Hines Ward) or Miller, and since Jacksonville is on the schedule for this Sunday, he will likely have a lot of chances to connect with Miller.  With just one more TD, he will exceed his disappointing total of last year.

Upside Plays:

Zach Ertz (PHI) - The Philly offense was only on the field last Sunday against San Francisco for 17 minutes so they will be itching to get some more action against the St. Louis Rams this Sunday.  Ertz hasn't reached the end zone since Week 1 against Jacksonville but has caught four passes in two of his last three games.  Given the big play nature of the Philly offense, Ertz is always a threat to score, especially when he is actually on the field.  This game should be a high scoring affair and the Eagles offense will be on the field long enough for Ertz to have a big impact.  Clay Harbor (JAX) - With a new QB in Blake Bortles, new weapons will emerge as he breaks in the new offense including Harbor who is a longtime journeyman level-type TE with ability, albeit limited.  Since Jacksonville has committed to Bortles for the foreseeable future, Jacksonville will be involved in a lot of high scoring games because its defense is average and the offense will have to play catch up most of the time.  Harbor caught eight passes for 69 yards against San Diego in Bortles' first start, so he definitely merits consideration in all fantasy dailies as a low priced option.

Defenses - Featured site is DraftStreet

Fantistics Top 5 Defenses:
1. Detroit
2. Cincinnati
3. Pittsburgh
4. Minnesota
5. Chicago

Top Play:

Detroit Lions - The Lions face a Buffalo Bills team this Sunday which will be starting journeyman veteran Kyle Orton at QB because of EJ Manuel's inconsistent play.  The Lions are really playing well on defense - ranked 6th against the run, 3rd against the pass, 3rd in sacks and 4th in forced fumbles.  When you combine those stats with a struggling Buffalo offense that is starting a QB who really shouldn't be starting in the league anymore, you have a recipe for big time defensive points.  In two home games this year, Detroit hit both the NY Giants and Green Bay - two teams that have been playing great offense of late - hard so you can imagine what it plans for Buffalo.  Detroit outscored NY and GB 54-21 and has not given up more than 17 points in any game this year.  Although its pass defense stats are more impressive right now, Detroit's run defense is the true anchor of that side of the ball so Buffalo's strength - which is the running game - has a good chance to be neutralized quickly which would mean a very long day for the Bills.

Value Play:  Pittsburgh Steelers - The phrase "rookie quarterback" is music to any defensive unit's ears and that is exactly the tune that the Steelers are hearing as they prepare for Blake Bortles and the Jacksonville Jaguars this Sunday.  Now, Pittsburgh has been anything but impressive this year particularly against lowly Tampa Bay last week but there is something about a rookie QB that gets a defense moving so expect a lot of blitzes which will result in sacks and turnovers.  We also must factor in Pittsburgh's offense which is surely going to score a lot of points and force Jacksonville to be more aggressive than it would probably prefer to be, which will cause a lot of mistakes.  Fantistics projects a nice stat line for Pitt's D - 247 yards allowed, 13 points, 2.5 sacks and .3 TOs.

Other Value:  New York Giants - The Giants host a Falcons team that has struggled mightily away from the Georgia Dome - losing two games by a combined score of 65 to 38.  The Giants are coming off an amazing performance against Washington last Thursday night which saw them intercept Kirk Cousins four times and force two fumbles in an absolute bloodbath.  Atlanta has lost three starters on its offensive line due to injury so it could be a long day for Matt Ryan.

Kickers - Featured site is StarStreet

Fantistics Top 5 Kickers:
1. Shaun Suisham
2. Justin Tucker
3. Greg Zuerlein
4. Robbie Gould
5. Shayne Graham

Top Value:

Shaun Suisham (PIT) - Suisham has had a strong year even though he did miss one field goal attempt last Sunday against Tampa Bay.  On the year he has converted 9 of 10 FGs and all 10 XPs which translates to 37 total points - which ties him for third in kicker scoring.  Pittsburgh faces Jacksonville this Sunday in a game that should see the Steelers put up a lot of points given the pathetic nature of Jacksonville's defense which is ranked 25th against the run and 32nd against the pass.  Because of the amount of scoring opportunities the Steelers will accumulate, Suisham will have plenty of field goal and extra point opportunities.

Other Values:  Dan Bailey (DAL), Alex Henery (DET) and Nick Novak (SD).

Hello,

I am new to myfantasyfix as well as Daily fantasy sports. I was expecting a spreadsheet a spreadsheet that I could use that you list all players on a specific site (DraftKings) that I could use to help build my weekly lineups. I was listening to Sirius today and I thought I heard that you offer a spreadsheet with highlighted recommended plays of the weekroken done by price for each DFS site? I am on a trial subscription and would like to know the value of the site before I make a decision. Thanks
