Sign Up Here – $300,000 Sunday Bomb

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

Week 14

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 1pm kickoff when rosters lock to sign up.

QUARTERBACK


Chicago QB – $7,200 – Whether it is
Josh McCown at $7,200 or
Jay Cutler at $7,100, the Bears quarterback will find success in a Monday night home matchup against the Cowboys.
Eli Manning checks in at $6,500 against the Chargers on the road and isn’t a bad pick at this cheap price.
Carson Palmer has been reliable of late, but his cost is $7,700. I would rather go with one of the cheaper options that spend that much on Palmer. If I was going to spend money on a QB, I would look at
Nick Foles at $9,000 as my target. I would also consider
Tom Brady at $9,200, but the touchdowns are more likely to come in the air in Philadelphia. The big time studs cost too much.

RUNNING BACKS

Andre Brown
– $7,100 – I am not a fan of combining Eli with Brown because the Giants offense has not been that potent this year. Therefore, I would probably choose Brown and go with a different QB play. He has been extremely productive with point totals of 19, 17, 10, & 18 since his return.

Eddie Lacy
– $7,000 – It looks as if Rodgers will likely be out again, so Lacy’s prospects are not that great. However, Atlanta’s defense may offset that factor. Green Bay should go heavy on the run game with Lacy, especially with the extra days off.

Shane Vereen
– $6,500 – Vereen has been almost as solid as Brown since his return. They have both been great stashes for fantasy owners that held on to these backs for weeks.

Less than $6.5K

Giovani Bernard
– $6,400 – Normally provides value with his price tag

Danny Woodhead – $6,200 – The Giants usually struggle with these RBs

Rashard Mendenhall – $5,000 – Rams can’t stop the run & if
Andre Ellington is out, decent play

Montee Ball – $4,800 – Keep an eye on
Knowshon Moreno‘s health

My strategy would be to take a pair of RBs priced at $7,000 or lower. Vereen and Lacy would be my duo of choice. This allows you to fit
Rob Gronkowski in your lineup, which I have done in nearly every week he has been back and it has paid off. (Last six weeks: 21, 18, 14, 24, 3, 15)

WIDE RECEIVERS

Studs

:
Josh Gordon‘s price has skyrocketed to $9,200. I would not recommend using him this week because Bill Belichick tends to focus on one guy he wants to take out of the game and he does. You would imagine that guy would be Gordon, so I am limiting expectations for him this week.
DeSean Jackson‘s price has slowly been decreasing, but a 20+ point day is always possible. He will cost you $7,000 and against the Lions defense, I would take the chance.
Antonio Brown should rebound after his quiet game against the Ravens. I’ve been waiting for
Dez Bryant to explode with a big game and it could come in primetime against Chicago on Monday night.

Talkin’ cheap

:
T.Y. Hilton is due for a breakout game. His price tag is at $5,900, but he can blow up at any time. The Colts could use that this week as they travel to Cincinnati.



Riley Cooper
($5,900) is also on the radar as you can throw out last week’s game where the Eagles attacked the Cardinals defense and their inability to cover tight ends. If you are going to pass on DJax, then try to fit Cooper in your lineup for over $1000 less.
I would expect a lot of people to be off the
Nate Burleson bandwagon, but his price is $4,500 and if you were in a jam to fit other studs in your lineup, look for this Lion. Tom Brady has been hooked on
Julian Edelman ($4,900) the last few weeks and I would not expect Joe Haden to be matched up exclusively with any specific New England WR at this point.

Strategy

: If you are not comfortable with a sub-$5,000 WR, then you could always swap out Lacy for Mendenhall and save $2,000. This would allow you to upgrade that last WR slot.

TIGHT ENDS

Rob Gronkowski

– $8,500 – His price has gone up a few hundred, but he is still well worth it. As I mentioned above, his point totals the last six weeks are 21, 18, 14, 24, 3, 15. Jimmy Graham should not be ignored at $8,200 and if Gronk’s price continues to separate too much from Graham, I will look at the Saints’ stud tight end. However, this week, the matchup is better for the New England tight end.

Jordan Reed
($5,500) is the only other tight end worthy of looking at since he is a top-5 option when healthy, but is priced very low. The matchup is not appealing and he is still feeling the effects of that concussion so I would stay away. Don’t look less than this price mark. I would much rather roll with a high priced tight end and a lower priced WR3 than pick a cheap tight end and a high priced WR. The risk of getting a dud from a sub-$5,000 tight end is higher than that of a WR.

 

KICKERS & DEFENSES

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

Choice:
Matt Prater – $5,000

Alternatives
: Prater at home is a no brainer at $5K.

As for defense, look at the lower priced options if you cannot spend a couple hundred extra:

Choice: Patriots (v CLE) – $5,200 – Who will play QB for the Browns?

Alternative
: Ravens (v MIN) – $5,000

Good luck in Week 14!
