Week 16 DFS Blue Book
Welcome to the Week 16 DFS Blue Book. There are only 2 weeks left in the season so this week let’s try and hit it big and go out with a bang!
Tom Brady | QB | Cash
Tom Brady against the lowly Jets, coming off a down game has 4 TDs written all over it. I don’t think you need advanced statistical knowledge and/or the ability to see the future to know Brady is going to bend the Jets over and bury it to the hilt.
Cam Newton | QB | GPP
Cam Newton is priced as the QB9 this week but with a home game against the Atlanta Falcons, he has clear QB1-upside. Last year around this time, the Falcons ruined the Panthers undefeated streak. I think Cam comes out strong and delivers his best performance of the year and leaves the stadium dressed as The Man with The Yellow Hat from Curious George fame.
LeSean McCoy | RB | Cash
Here’s a guy who has consistently put up top 3 RB numbers when healthy. This week, Shady is as healthy as a person with Herpes can be and he is facing a Dolphins defense that is bad against the run. In the first meeting, McCoy had the hamstring injury that may have cost the Bills the game. I think he gets some revenge and goes for 125 and 2 TDs.
Jordan Howard | RB | Cash
Jordan Howard has put up double-digit fantasy points in every game he has gotten double-digit carries. He’s accomplishing this behind a mediocre OL with suspect QB play. His performance this year has been as impressive as Zeke’s, in my opinion. This week, he gets a Redskins defense that was just gashed by Jonathan Stewart.
Bilal Powell | RB | GPP
Bilal Powell has been a league-winner for people the last two weeks. Now let him be your money winner this week. Against Miami, Powell was able to pull in 11 catches and I expect that he sees similar game flow this week.
Frank Gore | RB | GPP
If Robert Turbin would fuck right off this week, Frank Gore would be a top 10 RB option. I’m not going to let some GL vultures deter me from playing a great value, however. I think Gore remains involved and gets into the EZ this week.
T.Y. Hilton | WR | GPP
Hilton is exactly the kind of WR that has given the Raiders trouble this year. I think this game has the potential to be Hilton’s best performance of the year.
Michael Crabtree | WR | Cash
The Colts have been a sieve to WR2 this year and Crabtree might be the best no. 2 WR in the game. In his last 2 home games, the Crab has scored more than 20 points.
Michael Thomas | WR | GPP
Malcolm Mitchell | WR | GPP
Like so many other WR, Malcolm Mitchell laid an egg against the Broncos. That should drive his ownership down. I love a Mitchell/Brady stack this week.
Tyler Lockett | WR | GPP
Tyler Lockett is doing his signature “finish strong routine” to close out the year. This week, he faces an Arizona Cardinals defense that is 28th in defending the WR2 this year. I love Lockett in GPPs and wouldn’t mind stacking him with the Seattle DST for a possible double dip.
Ted Ginn | WR | Cash
Since Week 8 Ted Ginn has been the Carolina Panthers WR1 but DraftKings won’t raise his price. I think he’s got a great shot to gain over 100 yards and scores a TD this week.
Antonio Gates | TE | GPP
Is Philip Rivers going to get Antonio Gates this record or not? This late-season disappearance of targets is tantamount to disappearing from the bar when you’re supposed to be wing-manning your friend. Instead of throwing touchdown passes to his best bud Antonio, Phil’s bolo-tie-wearing face-ass has been driving away the girls by telling them about God and his 7878329 kids. I realize I blended some metaphors there, so in summation, if Rivers doesn’t get Gates this record, he’s going to burn in Hell.
Cameron Brate | TE | Cash
Harvard man Cameron Brate has a juicy matchup against the Saints this week. He’s a top 3 TE option, priced as the ninth TE. That’s a nice value for a guy with huge upside.
Raiders | DST | GPP
Khalil Mack has taken shits that gave him more trouble than these Colts OL will. That isn’t even hyperbole, he went to UB so he’s definitely indulged in some late-night Jim’s Steak Out after a night a partying at The Steer. If that isn’t a recipe for bathroom trouble, I don’t know what is.
