Mans’ Guarantee of the Week
Jackson is just going to produce, no matter the opponent. Obviously expensive, but no reason to be surprised if he makes value. IS fadeable here bc of price, though. BUF may slow the game down a lot.
Like Watson a lot. Trust him. Like him a lot more than I like Ryan.
Tannehill is someone I like a lot in cash. Tannehill > Fitzpatrick.
Watson and Ryan will have ownership.
Don’t hate Carr as a contrarian play. Not in one of my main LUs, but if I build 10+.
Blough is my insane, off-the-wall play.
Mahomes naked is a thought.
Using McCaffrey is a personal choice. Can’t tell you not to.
Chubb, Fournette are my favorites.
Only problem with Henry is he’s very expensive and doesn’t catch passes.
Also like Gordon a lot.
No interest in KC RB, Drake, or Laird.
I’m okay with Snell, but not crazy about it.
Henry is my favorite.
If there’s a week to take a risk with Michel, this is it. Also like White a lot on DK.
I just don’t use ATL RB, so no Freeman here.
Also fading KC RB, Drake, and Laird.
If Bell is OUT, I definitely want the min-priced Powell.
Adams is my favorite.
Hill is not ideal for cash, but fine for GPP.
Always like Sutton.
DJ Moore has the best CB MU on the slate.
Beckham always performs against bad teams.
Boyd is the lock of the slate. Insanely underpriced.
Not expecting a huge game out of Westbrook bc of MU, but don’t hate the play.
Could be a big Fuller week. If I build one LU he will not be on it, but if I build GPP-only LUs, he will.
Don’t really like anyone in the value tier. Auden Tate is fine.
Like Parker. Is clearly Fitzpatrick’s favorite.
Don’t see ANY WR going over 20% owned.
I’m declaring it is Julio week.
Edelman is the safest/best mid-top-tier guy.
Westbrook is still mispriced. Love him.
Like McDonald, but not in love.
Waller is way underpriced.
Doyle is in a great spot, especially on DK.
Rudolph is way underpriced on FD and is getting all of Thielen’s targets.
Ian Thomas is my punt guy.
Kittle is expensive and in a mediocre MU, but we’ll get him at very low ownership and he’s a great player.
Doyle definitely my “go-to” TE.
Ian Thomas is on my radar as a good pay-down option.
SF just proved how good they are against BAL, and now get NO.
Fine with NYJ.
Don’t really like any of the super-punt choices. TB would be the best of them.
Lock-button DK DEF is NYJ.
TB the best punt DEF.
Cash LU will probably not have any KC/NE exposure, but I really want to build a second, GPP-only LU.
Mans’ Saturday Night Chat
*I love Watson, he is fine for cash sure
*I think Baker is totally fine…..
*Fitzpatrick is more expensive than Tannehill and Titans > Dolphins overall
*Cousins in GPP for sure…
*My GPP QB Is hopefully Rodgers…….was going to be Watson but too high ownership
*Not sure why Watson is so cheap
*I dig Darnold this week for sure., With Jets D hurting, could get quite a bit of scoring there
*I am convinced Tommy ONLY likes Blough cause he can pronounce BLOW
*Lamar Jackson is very good play….just expensive and I have him projected at 21.2 points…..totally good but will be out scored by 5+ QB’s I believe
*Packers blew out the Raiders too and Rodgers threw for 420 and 4
*Matt Ryan is frightening….he has played so poorly….I think he will be fine but the risk/price just isn’t for me
*@IrishSuds Tannehill > Ryan for me
*Titans do have Adoree Jackson out….Butler already out so maybe a bit better for Carr. I wouldn’t do it but can understand
*Mahomes has crushed the Pats and he quite contrarian….thought about it myself but couldn’t justify
*Brissett > Alen
*I can’t go there with Brady
*Tannehill is just a cheaper but stable guy. Runs a little, throws down the field, spreads it around so making it tougher on the defense. Raiders are decent against the run too and will score on offense which lifts Tannehill’s attempts/completions/yards
*I don’t like Winston because of turnovers and the slow down Indy Defense
*Cousins > Allen
*Wilson > Cousins
*Snell > Mattison
*Powell is fine….but on FD I really don’t think he is necessary. If you use him, expect Ty Montgomery to be very involved as well
*Fournette is a touch monster but the spike in catches was with Foles and not Minshew remember that
*80% Powell would normally be nearly mandatory…..but remember how Gase treats RBs…he rotates them so this is his wet dream this week. If Powell scores TDs that is his only real value
*I would use Powell > Laird for sure
*I love Henry more than ANYONE and any of our FG subs know this…..but his price has gotten quite rich. An RB with a game flow issue at 9100 is a big risk
*Powell > Mattison for cash yeah….I am open to Mattison in GPP though
*I am worried about Cook. Pain tolerance is never good with RBs in week 14
*Floor for Snell is 14-66-.25…1-8 receiving…
*I don’t fuck with Patriots RBs…..others do but I do not
*The Jets WILL use Montgomery too….A LOT
*Ty Montgomery is going to be the next Le’Veon Bell…..that was my understanding from every other analyst out there 3 years ago
*Philip Lindsay = Broncos might be without 2 offensive lineman (James & Leary) against a tough run team while trailing with a rookie QB.
*Fournette is cash worthy yes. Schuster loves him…I am a bit worried about Chargers D
*Snell is fine….game flow does take him away though too so would have to be SURE Pitt will be in control most of the way
*Nick Chubb is good….priced right, will get 20+ touches (not many we can say that about), goal line touches and has most game breaking ability in this matchup than any other RB
*No on Darwin Thompson. Darwin Thompson usage will be based exclusively on those who loved him in preseason (as I did) but cannot let go
*I’d go White > Singletary
*Aaron Jones……its either a MONSTER game….or its a below average game. In cash games we need something to fall back on and he has none. Jamaal Williams is too involved especially in the red zone
*Yeah I do like Freeman. Offensive line healthy, matchup at home Vs team that is playing out schedule with position coach as interim head coach….for 6K…I dig it
*I am not using Jamaal Williams no. IMO there are too many contrarian RBs to use ones that are in a kittens share of the committee
*Pass on Kamara with those O-line injuries. Could make a sizable dent in the receiving game but could also have under 10 points
*I am not doing Singletary no.
*Chubb > Fournette this week
*Powell isn’t cheap enough on FD honestly. We can build good enough lineups without having to use him to get a stud or two. On DK, don’t think that you can
*On SD where you get 1.95x on Powell….that makes a ton of sense
*Love MGII this week. Jaguars bleed Vs run and Chargers would only run the ball if they could which they might now that their defense is back to health.
*Freeman > Snell
*Game flow with Chubb v Hunt….if CLE leads throughout its ALL Chubb. If its close its split, if they are down its still split but Hunt is like 55/45
*Powell needs TD(s) to succeed IMO. Yards will be OK but few if any catches with Montgomery there
*Powell is SO CHEAP on DK 3500….wild
*I tell ya….Montgomery isn’t a bad play on DK…..I despise him but
*Devonta Freeman = Home game, favorite, panthers awful Vs run, Redskins GASHED Panthers last week, Panthers fired HC, Falcons getting 1st round O-lineman back, last time they played Hill/Ollison had 1 TD and should have had 2
*Oh and according to my Twitter…the Jets have the worst O-line in the HISTORY of the NFL….so that should tell us to cool it on lock buttoning Powell, right?
*Adam Gase = Gets a 10 foot boner for using multiple RBs…..ask Kenyan Drake
*I suppose Powell > Mack because of price only
*Snell is NOT a lock button play.
*Powell > Penny
*I am only doing 2 lineups….so zero Mattison
*I would go Mattison > Powell in GPP honestly
*I am toying with CMC….have plenty of salary on both FD and DK honestly
*Saquon > Ekeler
*Yeah Freeman > Ingram
*Mattison I have for 13.25 touches….I would bet that over BTW
*Dalvin Cook 11.9…..or as human would say 12, and I would bet the UNDER on Cook
*Mattison not in cash but in GPP yeah
*Parris Campbell > Chester Johnson for sure
*Jet to stack would be Robby Anderson
*Speculating on Colts WR’s in cash……I am going to go ahead and say PASS on that idea.
*I would go Adams > MT just because of likely TD upside
*Stefon Diggs….yeah I love it
*Like Parris Campbell…..VERY unsure on what his usage is going to be though. Last time out they pumped him the ball but that was a month ago
*Julio is a fucking enigma. He is the WR version of Matt Breida ….makes it hard to trust him
*I REALLY think that Beckham goes nuts
*Parker is a great play now yes. The Jets are down 3 DB’s including Jamal Adams
*OBJ & Parker are BOTH great….
*OBJ is IN THE CASH GAME BREAKDOWN!!! LOL
*Nah I can’t do Bourne. Deebo is fine but Bourne is just too random
*Parker in cash…Sutton in GPP
*Gage in cash NO
*DJ Moore is in there yes
*Lockett > Chark
*Tyler Boyd is so underpriced….
*Golladay and Marvin Jones are both quality in this matchup…….I prefer Golladay slightly
*I would rate high end WRs like this: Adams, Thomas, Evans, Julio & Tyreek
*Edelman is ALWAYS in play for cash. He will never hurt us but there is just so little upside usually
*Evans > Godwin (bubble mower formation)
*I am not going to gamble on a KC WR not named Tyreek this week with all of these other quality options around us
*James Washington is solid for cash yes
*Adams/Marvin Jones > Edelman/Parker
*Like Edelman, like others more
*Kenny Moore being out DOES help Godwin
*TEN = AJ Brown, DET = Golladay & Jets = Robby Anderson
*Depends on Lattimore but right now its Bourne on PJ
*Sanders should smash that price but he has really fallen off with Jimmy lately
*Mike Williams is interesting…he is going to be my sleeper on the SXM show tomorrow if Fuller is out, Rivers is a fucking trainwreck, He does throw it up to Williams 1x per game though
*Diggs > Edelman in DFS this week
*Diggs > marvin Jones
*Parris Campbell > Bourne
*Alshon > Sanders
*Washington > Marvin Jones
*Must have GPP player…..Odell Beckham
*Boyd, Moore & Sutton
*Julio is always in play for me…..but I don’t have enough faith in him
*In cash games Edelman > Julio
*No on Hurns…too risky and there are other plays
*Watkins > Hurns
*No on John Brown. Too tough of a matchup
*Washington > Kirk
*OBJ >> Washington
*I was talking up Ian Thomas
*Griffin > Higbee assuming he plays
*Doyle > Andrews
*I would use Waller > McDonald…….Vance McDonald does get a lot of Red Zone targets but doesn’t play out of the slot. So its neutral
*Kittle could smash for sure. I love the route matchup there….he is expensive and Saints D is good
*I am not going to use Vance McDonald. It makes perfect sense, and he could score but this is one of few weeks where I think a few TE’s could not score and still out produce him
*Kelce is ALWAYS viable…..but Pats going to assign a CB and safety to him like in playoffs last year.
*Doyle is in such a great spot
*Dude the Panthers coaches are completely out of their element. They have ONE other TE who is a random journeyman guy
*Thomas > Higbee
*Waller on FD, Doyle on DK
*No ben Watson
*No on Fant….was better with Brandon Allen
*Ian Thomas > Gesicki
*Doyle > Ertz in DFS….
*Ian Thomas > Smith and Graham
*49ers and Pitts are by 2 DST
*49ers > Ravens DST but just by a little
*49ers > Packers
*No on Browns D
*49ers = Steelers…..pick your favorite
*Chargers > Texans
*Ravens were highest grade…..nothing wrong with them but price
*Love Chargers DST
*Bills defense is good….not Ravens good
*Yeah Chargers > Bills
*Best cash games are single entry 50/50’s with 100+ entries. 100 on the nose is perfect. SuperDraft has ones with no multiple lineups
*Jets are RUINED on defense this week. Saints O-linen is banged up, Vikings maybe without LT, Browns secondary banged up too
*Powell is good as a means to an end like to get CMC, Lamar or M Thomas…..
*Jets have no Jamal Adams and 3 other DB’s
*Darnold naked is fine….but a Robby Anderson is so cheap that makes it quite tempting to pair him
*1 cash 1 GPP for me. 2 lineups.
*Stacking Cousins……ONLY with Diggs or MAYBE Rudolph
*Yeah I would stack Rodgers with Adams
*Loose pricing = MORE lineup combinations….not LESS
*DON’T BELIEVE THESE FUCKING IDIOTS WHO ARE TRYING TO TELL YOU THAT FANDUEL PRICING CAUSES THEM TO ALL HAVE THE SAME LINEUP
*I’ll pass along the optimal they are all using against tomorrow on the air lolol
*I would ONLY play Mahomes naked honestly. Belichick will take away Tyreek/Kelce or both
*Bilal Powell = means to an end, Use him to get you the players you REALLY want such as Lamar, CMC, Michael Thomas, etc.
*Powell and Thomas on DK…..really didn’t want to do that but Thomas Vs Doyle for 2100 less is way too close to justify
*Saints offense has been all over the place honestly. I really wonder if they will kick it into gear come playoff time
*Powell > Campbell in cash
*Seahawks/Rams could shoot out yes. I expect it to go over the 47.5 number myself
*Good question @HungryBear. I ONLY use players from the Breakdown….even in GPP now that I add the GPP section.
*TE for FLEX is alright but I wouldn’t lean on that. Try to make a lineup with just the one TE…TE’s are rarely top performers when it compares to RB/WR
*I don’t have a FLEX preference….every slate different
*You CAN play CMC and Thomas….I think you’re better off though picking ONE this week
*\22 person league I would use my cash lineup
*I said 1 hour during Xmas season, LOL Wife is SO PISSED AT ME
*Favorite Xmas Movies are Its A Wonderful Life, Christmas Vacation
*Diehard not a Xmas movie. Bruce Willis declared it and I lean on him
*Blondes > Brunettes
*I am just happy that you’re fucking…..it’s the fools that aren’t fucking that are tilting in here Sunday afternoons lololol
*12 years between me and my nearest sibling. And I have four Brothers & Sisters. oldest is 19 years older
*If your dick gets hard to fuck it……it’s perfectly fine. God tells us what is OK to fuck. #Jesus
