You’ve had the tools the last two weeks to cash. Last week was a solid lineup that should’ve cashed in most contests. I would know for sure but I made some last second adjustments that cost me some points. Tevin Coleman, Giovani Bernard, Devin Funchess, Emmanuel Sanders, Davante Adams, and Jordan Howard all had touchdowns. Jimmy Garoppolo threw for two touchdowns. The Bears limited the Cardinals to 14 points while causing four turnovers. All together this lineup scored 136.84 FanDuel points which was good for about the 80th percentile in all my 50/50 contests. Easy money. Since last week did so well, we’re going to do another cash lineup this week and see if we can double our money once again.
Here’s the lineup, lock it in.
QB Andy Dalton ($7400)
Atlanta’s pass defense isn’t good and Dalton comes in this week at a price that I like to spend in cash games. The Atlanta defense is also a little banged up.
RB Giovani Bernard ($6400)
Bernard will get the start for another week as Joe Mixon is out again. Bernard had a solid week last week as I had him in my week three article. The Falcons are also bad at covering the backs. Jay Ajayi went for two touchdowns in week one. Christian McCaffrey did most of his damage receiving as he went for 14 receptions and 102 yards. Alvin Kamara just had a 15 reception day for 124 yards last week. Look for a lot of people picking up Bernard in cash games this week.
RB Saquon Barkley ($8000)
The Saints defense all around is just bad. Saquon has been consistent throughout his first three games in the league and has found the end zone twice.
WR Tyler Boyd ($5800)
For this price and the targets and production he’s had the last two games, I’m all over it. Plus Atlanta’s pass defense ranks 27th in the league.
WR Sterling Shepard ($6200)
Chalk. Chalk. Chalk. While Odell will be shadowed by Marshon Lattimore, Shepard will be covered by Ken Crawley. Tight end Evan Engram will be out allowing Eli to look to Shepard more this week and the Saints pass defense isn’t good as they are giving up 337 yards per game (30th in the NFL). They’ve been bad against covering WR2’s. DeSean Jackson put up 5 receptions-146 yards -2 touchdowns. Antonio Callaway put up 3-81-1 and Calvin Ridley just put up 7-146-3.
WR Jarvis Landry ($7000)
Landry has been targeted 37 times in just three weeks. I like to play guys who get the volume. I also feel more comfortable with Baker Mayfield passing him the ball rather than Tyrod Taylor. I’ve also got some exposure to his teammate Antonio Callaway in some tournaments. Callaway will play as the WR2 with Josh Gordon gone.
TE Eric Ebron ($5500)
Keep an eye on his counterpart Jack Doyle. If he’s out for a second straight week, Ebron will be a huge chalk play. I recommend to only play him in cash games, no tournaments.
FLEX Alvin Kamara ($9100)
Kamara won’t get you a lot of points on the ground, but he has been a Fantasy Football weapon because of his ability to get you points through the air.
DEF Los Angeles Chargers ($4400)
With Jimmy Garaoppolo out for the year, I’m going to test the 49ers offense by going with the Chargers. If you’re needing to save money this week at the defensive spot, I’d recommend going with the Browns. Even though the Browns have went against two beasts of offenses including the Saints and Steelers, they’ve averaged 10.67 FanDuel points per week.
Since it’s early in the week, be on the lookout for changes in injuries, weather or anything else that could effect game play. Follow my Twitter account for any changes that I make.
