QB – Eli Manning 7.6k – Most likely the chalk beside Cam Newton. Manning will play in a game with the most implied points total on the slate. No brainer exploitation play as the Saints secondary is extremely underwhelming now without top CB Delvin Breaux who himself gave up 319 yards to Carr in Week 1. If history repeats itself Manning will throw at least 4-5 tds and pass for 300 +.
RB1 – Lamar Miller 7.2k – Miller was a straight up workhorse who rushed for over 100 yards netting you 18.7 DK points failing to reach paydirt. Miller definitely has 30 touch upside and his 56% market share of touches is tied for most in the NFL. The Chiefs porous defense allowed 177 total yards and 3 TDs to backs week 1.
Pairing him with Theo Riddick $4.3k – Always a solid play in PPR scoring formats.
WR1 – Odell Beckham Jr. – $9.5k – OBJ Had an underwhelming week 1 netting only 11.6 points. Expect him to bounce back in extreme fashion. He is going to go on a feeding frenzy against an awful Saints secondary full of journey-men and unsigned free agents. I expect this game to be a shootout so Victor Cruz is a nice one off from OBJ as he will see targets and in the red zone at that. STACK ELI AND OBJ IN CASH. TRUST ME!
Pairings Tajae Sharpe $4.1k, Victor Cruz $4.3k – Both players have good matchups against defenses that struggled last week.
TE – Jesse James $3.4k – Chalk. James is coming off a decent performance in which he was targeted 7 times (two in the red zone) and converted into 5 catches and 31 yards. Being a red-zone target gives him a rather high TD probability on my models. (Heath Miller had 10 catches in both games fro PIT against CIN last season, giving high upside to this matchup for James)
FLEX – C.J. Anderson – $6.8k – CJA was eating healthy last week. He was fed the ball 24 times and was on the field virtually the whole game. If the Lions RB corps lit up IND in all aspects, then imagine what CJA is going to do today. Playing in a game where the Broncos are a -6 favorite look for CJ to get 20 touches, 100 yards and 1-2 TD. Also he is very affordable at a measly 6.8k.
D/ST – Lions $2.9k
