But before you go and sign up at Fanduel.com there’s this – wouldn’t you like to know who to play? Now I’m not going to tell you who my team is, after all you will be competing against me each week, but that doesn’t mean I won’t offer some helpful advice each week.
Here are some Week 7 thoughts.
Nick Foles, Eagles ($7,200): He hasn't thrown an interception and he gets to face a Cowboys club that is allowing more fantasy points to quarterbacks than any club in football. He's also $3,200 cheaper than Peyton Manning.
Josh Freeman, Vikings ($5,000): I don't know if you want to play a malcontent in his first start with a new club, but if you want to pile up the cash savings to spend elsewhere it should be noted that Freeman costs $1,800 less than Eli Manning and faces a Giants club that allowed 15 scores to quarterbacks in six games.
RUNNING BACK RECOMMENDATIONS
Willis McGahee, Browns ($4,800): He gets all the locks in the red zone, an all of them at the goaline (he has nine carries inside the five yard line while Doug Martin has none and Matt Forte two). Green Bay has only allowed three scores to runners though and they are in the top third at holding runners down in the fantasy game so it isn't a super matchup.
Zac Stacy, Rams ($4,900): The Rams rookie has run for 79 and 78 yards the past two weeks, and he's super cheap, but like McG his matchup isn't great as Carolina has only allowed only two rushing scores and less than 90 yards a week on the ground. Only start him if you're spending big in other spots.
WIDE RECEIVER RECOMMENDATIONS
Kenbrell Thompkins, Patriots ($6,100): Danny Amendola (concussion) will be out and it's looks like Rob Gronkowski (arm, back) is about 75/25 to play. Through six games the rookie has seen 50 targets and he's scored four times in his last four games.
Mike Wallace, Dolphins ($6,400): One of my favorite plays of the week. Wallace went over 100 yards last week and saw a whopping 16 targets. He faces Buffalo and the Bills have allowed 10 touchdowns and the second most fantasy points in the game to wideouts.
TIGHT END RECOMMENDATIONS
Jordan Reed, Redskins ($4,800): He's $400 cheaper than Joseph Fauria who has all of seven catches for 66 yards this season (OK, so he has five scores). Reed has clearly passed up Fred Davis in Washington and this could be his coming out party.
Kyle Rudolph, Vikings ($5,600): He's $300 cheaper than Coby Fleener and coming off his first significant game of the season (nine receptions, 97 yards, one score). He's as hit or miss as any player in the game and is working with a new QB this week so there is certain risk.
Dan Carpenter ($5,200) has hit all three kicks of 50-yards this season and he's 12-for-13 on the season. Adam Vinatieri ($5,200) has hit two kicks of 50 yards and he's 5-for-5 on 40-49 yard boots. Nick Folk ($5,000) hasn't missed a single kick this season converting all 13 chances but he hasn't attempted one over 49 yards.
The Chiefs ($6,000) are the most expensive defense in the game. They are coming off a 10 sack outing and facing a Texans team that is starting Case Keenum under center. The Chargers ($5,500) are facing a Jaguars team that sounds like it will be without Cecil Shorts. The Dolphins ($5,200) are facing the Bills who are down to Thad Lewis at less than 100 percent at QB.
