The WR position is really interesting in just a 4 game slate. There’s some higher end guys that could deliver pretty easily and there’s some really affordable priced guys that could deliver without even scoring a TD. I think the strategy will be to really just try and stack lineups based on who your QB is in cash games. In tournaments – I think people will save money at QB and spend up at WR/RB. The opposite might actually be more effective by paying up for one of the top QBs and going cheap at WR. We’ll see – but you should love your lineups this week for the most part …. just expect it to take some time for you to ultimately decide on who to roster.
Kenny Golladay – NIU
High upside type guy. If he keeps doing what he’s been doing – he’s a bargain at these prices.
Roger Lewis – Bowling Green
Could be more expensive on DK and still be a pretty good value. Nice way to capture some of Johnson’s upside by starting Lewis.
Corey Davis – WMU
He’s been great nearly all season. This isn’t a super easy matchup – but he should get plenty of targets again this week.
Daniel Braverman – WMU
Hasn’t produced much value at all the past 3 weeks against mostly sub-par teams. It’s possible he’s banged up, getting double teamed, or both since he was spectacular earlier this season. I think that makes him more of a tournament play becuase he has 40+ fantasy point upside but could also have another 12 point fantasy output.
Gehrigh Dieter – Bowling Green
Not a lock to hit value, but he doesn’t have to do too much for him to deliver for you.
Corey Jones – Alonzo Russell – Cody Thompson – Toledo
You can kind of lump these guys all together as viable, but risky because Toledo spreads the ball around quite a bit and it’s impossible to predict who’s going to benefit the most.
Jordan Williams – Ball State
Can’t say I’m familiar with this guy, but he’s a road underdog – so I’d expect him to get some looks in this game. He’s not a high upside guy – but if you need a guy in this price range for a cash game, I could see using Willias since he can deliver modest value at these prices.
Sebastian Smith – Ohio
Not sure you’ll need to cut salary much if you roster Vick – but pairing him with Smith will likely be a good idea since he’s the #1 target.
Jesse Kroll – Central Michigan
Another cheapy WR that I could see using in tournaments since he has 20+ point upside, which at these prices would be elite.
Ronnie Moore – Bowling Green
Strictly a tournament player at this point of the season on DK. Fandeul I think you avoid at those prices. Has 30+ upside but can lay duds like last week. Teammate Ryan Burbrink can be in this same category as well – but likely lower upside.
TE – Ben McCord $2,800 Looks like he gets involved each week which is really all you want from the TE spot.
TE – Michael Roberts $3,200 TD dependent TE that I think if you have the salary left over to roster him I would, otherwise drop down to a lower tier.
TE – Keith Heitzman $3,100 Appears to also be involved on a weekly basis and could be a nice pairing with Vick.
