– Matt Ryan $8,500 – The first cash game QB I like this week is Matt Ryan. Although he will be without Julio Jones at home this weekend, I still believe he will have a big game against a 49ers team that doesn’t play good defense, and also pushes the pace on offense. What makes Matt Ryan a safe play also is the fact that Vegas is projecting the Falcons to score a whopping 32 points this weekend at the Georgia Dome. I’m predicting this game to be a fast-paced game with a lot of points, and I firmly believe that Matt Ryan’s floor this week is 19 points.
– Tyrod Taylor $7,600 – Any QB that goes up against the Browns is an automatic start in my eyes. Tyrod Taylor does bring some risk because his accuracy has been a little off recently. Rex Ryan has also been on Tyrod’s case this weekend asking for his QB to play better. I believe this is much to do about nothing; Tyrod Taylor will have at the very least a pair of touchdowns with a healthy dose of rushing yards as well. Tyrod is also a good GPP stack play with Sammy Watkins who should also have himself a very good game (even if Joe Haden is shadowing him this weekend).
– Le’Veon Bell $9,400 – If you don’t play Bell in cash games this week then you deserve to lose your money. Let’s forget about the fact that Bell is matchup proof because he touches the ball at least 28 times a game. What makes Le’Veon Bell an even greater play this weekend is the fact that the Bengals have struggled with the run game this season. Add the fact that the Bengals have a pretty decent secondary and this leaves no choice but for Todd Haley to call a lot of running plays to keep the Steelers offense moving this weekend against the Bengals. Bell is a safe play that must be in your lineups this weekend; I have Bell’s floor at a massive 21 points for his matchup against the Bengals.
– LeSean McCoy $9,000 – Shady McCoy is in a dream spot against a Browns defense that has shown no effort whatsoever in stopping the run. The only rushing defense you can say that has been equally as bad as the Browns rushing defense is the 49ers. Vegas have this game being won by the Bills rather easily, for that reason alone this game has the looks of a Shady McCoy game. Don’t be surprised to see McCoy total over 175 yards from scrimmage. I wouldn’t worry about Shady losing his goal line touches either; you don’t have to worry about goal line work when McCoy runs it in from his own 40-yard line.
