Dook’s Corner – Week 4 Plays
I rolled with one gpp lineup last week. It went very well! Game selection is important to me and I like the freedom of not sticking to one way of doing things. Last week I rolled out one lineup across all sites with a core group of players. Some weeks, I’ll make more lineups if I’m liking more spots. For Week 4, I’m not seeing as much so I think I’ll stick with cash games. I’m also aggravated that DK took away the SNF game. I loved watching Thompson bring me up the leader boards while having a beer last week. Let’s dive in…
Deshaun Watson $7300 FD/ $5100 DK
Watson came dangerously close to sealing a win in Foxborough last week. BOB let the rookie do his thing against the Patriots “defense” while coming away with 300 yards through the air and a pair of TDs. He’s still cheap and he gets it done on the ground and through the air.
Alex Smith $7600 FD/ $6300 DK
Ok he’s not on the main slate but i really like Smith this week. Huge implied point total at home and in Arrowhead. The Redskins are riding a high from last week’s win over OAK and are primed for a major let down spot. Pair him with Tyreek or go full game stack with Smith/Hill/Hunt.
Others to consider:
Mariota GPP/ Palmer GPP/Cam GPP/ Eli GPP
Melvin Gordon $7500 FD/ $7000 DK
He is a gpp only play for me this week. He has injury concerns but I think he gets overlooked this week considering he’s been relatively quiet this season. The Eagles have a middling rush defense and have been exploited by Hunt already this year.
Lesean McCoy $8300 FD/ $8400 DK
McCoy is an easy plug and play for me in cash games this week. Atlanta always struggles against pass catching running backs. McCoy will return value because of his involvement in the passing game. Look for the Bills to play catch up in the dome.
Marquise Lee $6200 FD/ $4500 DK
After ARob went down a few weeks ago, Lee has stepped up in his place with huge passing volume for the Jags. He’s been on the wrong side of TD variance the last couple weeks and should hit pay dirt soon. Is it this week?
Deandre Hopkins $7300 FD/ $6400 DK
Nuk has been getting crazy volume in this Houston passing game. He’s good for GPP or cash this week after securing 7 catches in each of the first 3 weeks. If he gets into the endzone against Tennessee’s leaky secondary he’ll easily hit 3x.
Tyreek Hill GPP LOCK/ Diggs GPP/ DJax GPP
I don’t feel good about any “locks” at TE this week so I’ll just list a few guys I have some interest in.
