Sign Up Here – $300,000 Sunday Bomb

The entry fee is $25 and first place takes home $25,000!

Week 11

The standard salary cap is $60,000. The familiar names and studs will put a dent in your salary cap so you will need to find some value picks along the way. This contest includes only the Sunday games so you’ll have until 1 p.m. kickoff when rosters lock to sign up.


QUARTERBACKS

Nick Foles – $8,600
Russell Wilson – $9,000
Colin Kaepernick – $8,000
Robert Griffin III – $8,400

This week I feel the need to spend a few extra bucks on a quarterback. Kaepernick, Griffin III, and Wilson’s ability to run gives them that added bonus. Keep an eye on the injury status of
Vernon Davis

. If he is out, I would not recommend Kaepernick. I would rank my choices in the order shown above based on value, but I would mix and match these guys in your lineup to see what fits best.

Bargains

:

Geno Smith – $6,400 – Smith has been capable of putting up 20 points in a week and he has a matchup this week against Buffalo on the road. You can also consider E.J. Manuel at $5,800, who scored 19 fantasy points against the New York Jets in September.

RUNNING BACKS

Alfred Morris – $7,400 –
Morris has been running extremely well over the last several games and should definitely be able to score between 16-18 points against Philadelphia. There is upside for 20-plus points if he can reach the end zone at least once. The stud running backs are priced in the $8,000 and above range so Morris at $7,400 is a steal.

Andre Brown – $6,500 –
While you should not expect 30 carries for 115 yards again, you should know that the New York Giants have every intention of letting
Andre Brown

be the workhorse for the remainder of the season. He is a good bet for a score on Sunday afternoon.

Another option

:

Ray Rice – $6,400 – I am extremely tempted to pick Rice against the Chicago defense at this price.

Ben Tate

is listed at $5,700 and he may be a better pick against Oakland where you can save $800. I usually like to pick
Eddie Lacy

at his cheap price ($6,700), but the New York Giants have played well against the run this season.

WIDE RECEIVERS

DeSean Jackson – $7,900 –
I love the connection of Nick Foles and Jackson in Fanduel this week. It isn’t cheap, but it will not cost you an arm and a leg. While it appears
Riley Cooper

has been Foles’ go–to–guy, Jackson still offers more big play ability and I have a hard time spending $7,000 for Cooper despite his two big games.

Vincent Jackson – $7,100
– Jackson torched Atlanta the last time out, and last week
Russell Wilson

had his way with the Falcons secondary. Tampa Bay heads home with Doug Martin and
Mike James

out with injures so the Buccaneers will have to rely on the passing attack.

Torrey Smith – $6,300 –
Smith fits perfectly into the salary cap of this team and he gets to face the Chicago defense that has been decimated with injuries. Smith has only two touchdowns on the year, but with the run game struggling, look for Joe Flacco to try to make a big play to Smith.

Honorable mentions

:

Josh Gordon ($6,700), Victor Cruz ($6,600), Keenan Allen ($6,600), Eric Decker ($5,800),

*I am considering flipping the combo of Jackson/Smith for two of Gordon/Cruz/Allen. I have a feeling Cruz is ready to go off for one of those big multiple touchdown games. Jackson is locked into my lineup with Foles at quarterback.

Injury Alert

:
Golden Tate ($5,300) – This is a steal if

Percy Harvin

is out. Even if Harvin suits up, it is unknown how much he will play, but without him in the lineup you know the main target for Wilson would be Tate.

TIGHT ENDS

Jordan Reed – $5,900 –
This was really an easy choice for me at tight end. Normally, I have been spending the money on
Jimmy Graham

or
Rob Gronkowski

, but Reed is a top-five tight end that is too cheap to pass up. Even though Gronkowski will still get his catches, he is faced with a tough matchup this week.

Injury Alert

:
If

Vernon Davis

is cleared and practices all week, at $6,200, he is worth the chance in the dome against New Orleans.

KICKERS AND DEFENSES

Pick your poison at the kicker position in the $5,000 price range:

Choice:
Justin Tucker – $5,000

Alternatives
:
Nick Novak, Phil Dawson, Dan Carpenter

As for defenses, this week I am not crazy about any of the high-priced options so I am looking at the bottom of the list. I will give a choice for each of the lower price ranges.

Choices
:

New York Giants (vs. Green Bay) – $5,300
Denver (vs. Kansas City) – $5,200
Chicago (vs. Baltimore) – $5,000

Good luck in Week 11!
