QUARTERBACK

Tom Brady – $8,000 – Despite the injuries to New England’s weapons, the team still has Brady under center. At this price, Brady is still affordable against one of the worst defenses in the league. His ownership level will likely compete with Cam Newton ($7,400) for the top spot. Both of these MVP candidates are solid cash game plays.

Ben Roethlisberger – $6,600 – As long as Roethlisberger is cleared this week, he is a solid option at this price. I would expect Pittsburgh to put up at least three touchdowns on offense. You can pair him with one of his top weapons in Antonio Brown or Martavis Bryant.

Eli Manning – $6,500 – I like Eli Manning as a tournament play as long as the New York Giants get some guys back on the offensive line. Darrelle Revis’ status is still up in the air so an Manning–Odell Beckham stack is also a possibility.

 

RUNNING BACK

DeAngelo Williams – $5,600 – Williams is underpriced and gets a solid matchup at home against Indianapolis.

LeGarrette Blount – $5,100 – The game plan was focused outside of Blount last weekend against Denver. Due to all of the injuries, I would look for New England to rely heavily upon Blount as we near the stretch run of the season. There are plenty of New England value plays this weekend.

Charcandrick West – $5,200; or Spencer Ware – $4,900 – If West suits up, it becomes a little trickier because you do not know if Kansas City will limit him. I would still play him if it looks like all systems are go. If West sits, Ware is a viable play at $4,900.

David Johnson – $3,400 – The matchup is not easy, but Johnson will get enough touches to provide value. The problem is he is going to be heavily owned in tournaments. That may not be a huge issue if you hit on other studs in your lineup because if Johnson goes off for 20-plus points, it will be difficult for you to catch the people who rostered him.

 

WIDE RECEIVER

Antonio Brown – $8,600; and Martavis Bryant – $5,600 – Bryant is priced too low for his production so I expect his ownership level to be high. As long as Ben Roethlisberger plays, both Pittsburgh wide receivers are top plays this week.

T.Y. Hilton – $5,700 – We were waiting for the blow-up game from Hilton and it came last week against Tampa Bay. This week, Indianapolis and Pittsburgh face off on Sunday night in a potential shootout game. It might not be a bad idea to center your team around players from this game. Donte Moncrief ($4,600) is worth a look as well.

Brandon LaFell – $4,800; and Danny Amendola – $4,700 – The lone survivors in the offense right now.

*Sneaky Tournament Stack*

 

TIGHT END

The herd will flock to Scott Chandler ($2,500) after the Rob Gronkowski injury. He is almost too cheap to pass up in cash games, but he could be worth a fade in tournaments as he is no sure thing. The ability to plug in a player at this price is a big advantage, especially with New England’s matchup this weekend.

At the same price tag, Will Tye and Luke Willson are viable punt plays. I think this is a good week save your salary at the tight end position.

 

DEFENSE

Look for values on defense this week. The couple of hundred bucks will help you spend up at the other positions.

Chicago – $2,600 – Chicago is a cheap option against San Francisco at home. San Francisco has been better at home this year than on the road.

Miami – $2,300 – You should not expect a huge day, but Miami will be able to hold its own at this price tag. This is the best value of the day on defense. Washington ($2,300) is also a decent option at home against Dallas, but if I had to choose, I would lean towards Miami.
