Tom Brady vs. Titans ($5,800)

I never thought i’d see the day that Tom Brady would fall into the Crates but here we are. He is the cheapest quarterback of the eight starting quarterbacks this wild card weekend. Statistically the Titans are a middle of the road defense and a bottom ten secondary. I’ll take Brady at home in January, when everything is on the line. The Patriots will attempt to get the running game and create play action for TB 12. He’s not going to hurt our fantasy lineups and when he’s mad his ceiling is nearly as high as any quarterback in the NFL’s.

Running Back


Sony Michel vs. Titans ($4,600)

It should be noted that Sony Michel has NOT rushed for over 100 yards in 2019, but the Patriots must realize at this point that if they’re going to win games then their rushing attack must be a large part of the game plan. The Patriots have beaten the Titans their last 7-of-8 games including the playoffs. We are paying for volume from Michel on an offense that needs a spark any way they can get it. I expect him to have close to 20 touches Wild Card weekend. He’s cheap enough to be used in any format but carries some risk.

Bonus:Duke Johnson

Wide Receiver

Greg Ward vs. Seahawks ($5,200)

First of all it is DAM impressive with what Carson Wentz did in 2019 despite having to solely rely on tight end production. Alshon Jeffery, DeSean Jackson, and Nelson Agholor have been out of the equation for periods of time and Wentz still finished the season with a SOLID stat line. As of today he’ll be the lone notable wide receiver for Carson Wentz to target. Ward has 21 targets over the last three weeks and the fantasy production has been decent enough by default. For a couple bucks more i’m targeting Cole Beasley but Ward is fine given his potential usage. Both are solid cash games plays.

Tight End

Dallas Goedert vs. Seahawks ($5,200)

Dallas Goedert was a legitimate Crate play a couple weeks ago and his cheap salary paid off big time. He has been relied on heavily by Carson Wentz all season along with Zach Ertz. The Eagles two tight end sets have been a recipe for success, because of their depleted cast of pass catchers. Goedert has double digit targets over the last two weeks and 28 total over the last three weeks. It will be interested to see how the ownership is divided between Ertz and Goedert Wild Card Weekend. Goedert feels like the cash game play and Ertz in tournaments.

Titans @ Patriots ($2,400)

While i’m optimistic about a Patriots win Wild Card Weekend, former Patriots defensive stud Mike Vrabel is coming to back to town against an atrocious Patriots offense line. They’re consistent enough to play in cash games and they have the upside for tournaments. The Titans have an opportunistic defense that has capitalized all season on opponents mistakes.
