I had heard so much about Cold Stone Creamery that I had no choice but to give it a try for myself. My love for ice cream is known by pretty much everyone, so in my head I knew I was going to get the biggest cup of ice cream they had to offer. I walk up and ask for the Cheesecake Fantasy (Cheesecake flavored ice cream, graham cracker pie crust, blueberries and strawberries) and they said what size would you like and I say what size do you got? She said “Like it", “Love it" and “Gotta Have It"
Just like when I was picking out the size of the ice cream I wanted, when I play Daily fantasy Football there is always guys when I set my lineup, that no matter the price you “Gotta Have" in your lineup, there are also those guys that are priced in the middle of the pack that have the upside of the “Gotta Have" crew in which that I “Love", and lastly there is the guy priced super low that you really “Like" that has a potential to really upset the field.So for week 4, I am going to pair my favorite Cold Stone Creamery combinations with my favorite DFS players this week.
Like it – “That's How I Roll" – (Cake Batter Ice Cream with Yellow cake, Pecans and Cinnamon)
Chris Johnson vs. St. Louis Rams - $4500 (DraftKings) - $6700 (FanDuel)
After producing only 2-100 yard rushing games in 2013 and 2014, CJ2K ran wild all over the 49ers. He finished with 22 carries, 110 yards and 2 TDs (he also added 1 catch for 40 yards as well). Bruce Arians loves him some CJ and after this past week there is no doubt in my mind that even with a healthy Ellington on the field, Johnson will continue to see the ball.
He is currently the 25th ranked (18th on FanDuel) on DraftKings which is very tasty considering the fact he has a fantastic matchup this week against the Rams who have given up 368 yards and 2 touchdowns against opposing running backs through the 1st 3 weeks of the season.
Martellus Bennett vs. Oakland Raiders - $4500 (DraftKings) - $5500 (FanDuel)
The Raiders have given up a touchdown to tight ends in 6 straight games dating back to last season. They've certainly made a household name out of these no-name tight ends (Barnidge & Gilmore being the latest). The biggest concern is going to be the quarterback play, whether Cutler or Claussen starts this week I really like Bennett.
With no GRONK this week, he is the 5th ranked (8th on FanDuel) tight end on DraftKings this week, with the trend of wide receivers going off, this is the perfect week to go cheap at the tight end position and get some real value.
Love It – Cheesecake Fantasy" – (Cheesecake Ice Cream with Graham Cracker Pie Crust, Blueberries and Strawberries)
Donte Moncrief vs. Jacksonville Jaguars - $5000 (DraftKings) - $6300 (FanDuel)
In the last 4 games against the Jaguars, the Colts have scored 134 points. Andrew Luck in those 4 games threw for 1162 yards and 8 scores including 4 straight games with tossing one to a wide out. Luck owns the Jaguars and Moncrief has been his go to guy this season.
Moncrief has found paydirt in 3 straight games and I have no problem predicting he will make it 4 straight on Sunday. Moncrief can still be had for real cheap he is the 27th priced guy on DraftKings (23rd on FanDuel). There will not be a lineup I create on Sunday that Moncrief isn't a part of.
Tyrod Taylor vs. New York Giants - $5800 (DraftKings) - $7600 (FanDuel)
I have been trying to stop “Tyrod Taylor" from being a thing and I just can't make it happen. TyGod known in the circles of the fantasy world and ice cream have a lot in common when it comes to me. Both have/are bad for my health and both are going to be tasty come Sunday afternoon. The Giants have given up an average of 345 yards through the air to opposing QBs through 3 games.
He can make plays with this arm and his legs when he needs to adding to his value in daily fantasy. He currently sits as the 13th ranked (11th ranked on FanDuel) on Draftkings and provides fantastic value with the great matchup looming.
Gotta Have It – “Cookie Doughn't You Want Some" – (French Vanilla Ice Cream with Chocolate Chips, Cookie Dough, Fudge and Carmel)
Karlos Williams vs. New York Giants - $3400 (DraftKings) - $6300 (FanDuel)
Who is the only running back to have a touchdown in each of the first 3 weeks of the season? Who leads all running backs with 7.8 YPC? And who has done all of this on just 24 carries? If you guessed Karlos Williams, you win a prize.
I've learned there is no slam dunk in Daily Fantasy but this week Karlos Williams is the type of player that's like the old WWF Ice Cream bars, always come through you need them. McCoy isn't looking likely for this weekend and even if he does play, I anticipate we see a lot more Williams than McCoy.
Additional Toppings (Nothing wrong with taking one of these creations and adding your own personal touch) – Here are a few extra guys I like for week 4.
Mark Ingram vs. Dallas Cowboys – ($6000 DraftKings - $8100 FanDuel)
I like this matchup more on DraftKings than on FanDuel but Ingram has been a two-way monster at the running back position. Cowboys have been good against the run but with Ingram catching the ball out of the backfield, this matchup will work out well in his favor.
Marvin Jones vs. Kansas City Chiefs ($3800 Draft Kings – $5500 FanDuel)
Jones is coming off back to back games with touchdowns and has a fantastic matchup against the Chiefs who have been torched the last two weeks by slot receivers.
