DFS BEASTS - Week 17By Muntradamus
FANTASY FOOTBALL BEASTS OF THE WEEK
NOT DUJUAN YET (Week 17)
This is the last week of the Regular season before we head into the most exciting time of the year, the playoffs. Before we get there, let us first make sure we maximize all the money we can make on FanDuel as well as starting the right players that could be crucial starts for your Fantasy Football League.
RYAN FITZPATRICK @ BUF
Muntradamus Rank: #3 QB
ECR Rank #9 QB
Never any love for the one we call, "Fitzmagic." The hottest QB in the NFL is going against his old team in the Buffalo Bills, for a Playoff spot. Let us not forget the Jets OC is Chan Gailey who was the Head Coach for the Bills when Fitzmagic was the QB. There is no way in the world the Bills are ready for this high powered offense that simply cannot be stopped. Fitzpatrick has won AFC Offensive Player of the Week, 2 of the last 3 games.
BRIAN HOYER vs. JAX
Muntradamus Rank: #5 QB
ECR Rank: #17 QB
Brian Hoyer runs the Bill O' Brien offense as perfectly as any QB can. Yes, the last time we saw Hoyer was a horrible Sunday Night Performance against the Patriots which ended up with Hoyer leaving the game early with a concussion. But this is a new week, Hoyer is going to need to put up big Fantasy numbers to compete with the Jags high scoring ways. Hoyer is tremendously undervalued.
DUJUAN HARRIS vs. STL
Muntradamus Rank: #28 RB
ECR Rank #44 RB
There is nothing sexy at all about Dujuan Harris, but if you need a player who costs next to nothing and will get at least 10-15 Touches, Dujuan is your man. 49ers will have to score at least 2 Touchdowns in their home finale, Dujuan is a good under dog to see one of them.
RASHAD JENNINGS vs. PHI
Muntradamus Rank: #3 RB
ECR Rank: #13 RB
Rashad is not getting enough love from the Fantasy Experts. For a majority of the season the Giants have been using a RBBC that featured as many as 4 Running Backs. For the last month, it has been all Rashad Jennings and he has been doing a great job with the role. Look for him to finish strong against one of the weak Run Defenses in the NFL, the Eagles.
WILLIE SNEAD vs. JAX
Muntradamus Rank: #15 WR
ECR Rank: #29 WR
Once again Marques Colston is out for the saints, and once again the Saints will be playing in a Dome. Last week Snead did not get rolling at all in the 1st half while Drew Brees was able to pick apart the Jaguars Defense for a HUGE lead. Eventually, Snead got involved and still was able to pull off a 70+ Yard game despite the fact the Saints did not throw much in the 2nd half. If Snead gets going early, you will regret not playing him all week.
KAMAR AIKEN @ CIN
Muntradamus Rank: #13 WR
ECR Rank: #26 WR
Aiken offers very nice sleeper value as it appears he and Mallet have a very nice connection going. In their first NFL game, Mallet to Aiken went a perfect 8/8 for 86 Yards. Look for Aiken to build on that success against a very overrated Bengals Defense. Aiken can be had for next to nothing in Daily Fantasy these days compared to the BEAST of the BEASTS.
