Quarterback: Jameis Winston TB ($5700) vs Oakland
Jameis Winston has attempted at least 30 passes in every game this season and gets a juicy matchup against the Raiders secondary. Winston has had 3 touchdowns or more in half of his games this year, those teams being the Falcons, Rams and 49ers. All teams that are bad against the pass. At $5700, he can return value in the first half easily in a potential shootout.
Running Back: Ezekiel Elliot DAL ($7200) vs Philadelphia
Zeke Elliot is matchup proof. Plain and simple. If he were to go against the 85 Bears and be $8000 I still may play him. He continues to go criminally underowned every week and I am not going to miss out on his boom potential in primetime.
Running Back: Devontae Booker DEN ($3700) vs San Diego
Booker strangely drew the start Monday night against the Texans and flashed his potential. Siemian is no good and I think the Broncos will play ball control every week and just pound the rock with Booker and Anderson. Booker is $2200 cheaper so sign me up for that every week. Expecting him to return value and then some this week.
Wide Receiver: Mike Evans TB ($8100) vs Oakland
Let's pair Mike Evans with Winston. Evans is an absolute beast…stud…inhuman..whatever you want to call him. The guy gets open and knows his route tree really well. Being Winston's favorite target, and only target at that, makes him easy to jump on. Evans has the potential for 20 targets this week and brings a safe floor of 15 points in my opinion every week. Playing him everywhere with confidence.
Wide Receiver: Tyler Lockett SEA ($3900) vs New Orleans
One of these days Russell Wilson is going to hook up with Lockett on a deep ball. I really hope it is this week. Lockett has been quiet all season after being drafted fairly early in season long leagues. He's been hurt and Wilson just hasn't been his normal self. The Saints depleted secondary could get the duo back on track this week.
Wide Receiver: Brandon Marshall NYJ ($7800) vs Cleveland
It really isn't fair to Brandon Marshall to have a QB carrousel this year and basically his entire career. However, Fitzpatrick is going to attempt to look at him all he can this week and feed him the ball. I'm not head over heels about the potential of this game but I like the spot Marshall is in. If Haden is out again I love it but if he plays I'm still expecting Marshall to feast.
Tight End: Gary Barnidge CLE ($3300) vs New York Jets
2015: 9 TDs. 2016: 0 TDs through 7 games. However, Barn is averaging 52 YPG with a goose egg week 1 and at least five targets in each game since then. He has to get in the end zone soon and with Revis potentially on Pryor, I expect whoever is quarterbacking the Browns Sunday to look Gary's way.
FLEX: Amari Cooper OAK ($7600) vs Tampa Bay
Fresh off of Ramsey Island in Week 7, Cooper is ready to go to the all you can eat buffet in week 8 vs the hapless funnel secondary that are the Bucs. Last week was Crabtree week, this week is all Cooper. Prior to last week, Cooper had 12 and 13 targets, look for that to get back on track this week. A big game is coming again for Cooper with hopefully a lot of people off of him after getting burned.
D/ST: Detroit Lions ($2500) vs Houston Texans
Two words: Brock Osweiler. That's it.
Good luck this week or......
