Moneyball’s Daily Fantasy NFL – Week 8

moneyballblack

We’ve hit the half way mark of the season but there’s still plenty of chances to win the big bucks. The prize pools keep growing and now we’ve got a chance for a share in $3,000! Arian Foster scored well for me last week, but has torn his achilles and is done for the season. Alfred Blue ($5800) and Chris Polk ($4500) will be taking over in his absence, and are handy value options, but I will probably wait a week to see how they’re used going forward.

You might have noticed the lads at Moneyball have tweaked their prices a little, so go check them out, there’s more value to be found.

This week we have Bills, Jaguars, Eagles, and Redskins on a bye.

Players I like this week.

Quarterback

Matthew Stafford (Detroit, $8200)
Has a new offensive co-ordinator named Jim Bob Cooter. Hopefully Jim Bob can bring some life to this offence.

Brian Hoyer (Houston, $7600)
Has scored over 20 points in the last three games. Is a garbage time champion.

Johnny Manziel (Cleveland, $5900)
His mobility makes him an intriguing selection if McCown doesn’t play.

Matthew Stafford

Matthew Stafford

Running back

Lamar Miller (Miami, $6800)
Invigorated under a new head coach and showing the talent we knew was there.

Todd Gurley (St Louis, $6600)
Probably the best RB in the league at the moment, keep riding him at this price.

Darren McFadden (St Louis, $6300)
Looks to be the lead dog now that Randle is injured. Can catch a pass.

 

Lamar Miller

Lamar Miller

Wide receiver

Alshon Jeffery (Chicago, $8400)
The forgotten man of fantasy football, scored 24 points in his first game back from injury, then had a bye.

Michael Crabtree (Oakland, $5700)
With Cooper generally finding the better cornerback, Crabtree is great value if he can find the end zone.

Stefon Diggs (Minnesota, $4700)
Another great game last week with 108 yards and a TD. Faces the terrible bears.

Alshin Jeffrey

Alshon Jeffery

Tight end

Martellus Bennett (Chicago, $6200)
Should be freshened-up after his bye and faces the Vikings who allow TEs to score.

Tyler Eifert (Cincinnati, $6000)
Facing a Pittsburgh defence that gives up the third-most points to TEs.

Travis Kelce (Kansas City, $6000)
Hasn’t scored a TD for a while, but the yardage has been serviceable. Decent chance to get in the end zone versus Detroit.

Travis Kelce

Travis Kelce

Defence

St. Louis ($4700)
Massive score last week and face the 49ers this week.

New York Jets ($4500)
Should be a competitive match up versus Oakland.

Houston ($4500)
Have performed dismally this season but are playing Tennessee so there’s chances for pick-sixes.

JJ Watt - Houston

JJ Watt – Houston

Kicker

Brandon McManus (Denver, $5000)
Denver have struggled to find the end zone somewhat, meaning plenty of scores for McManus.

Mason Crosby (Green Bay, $5000)
Green Bay may find it tough against the Denver D, which means they will rely on Crosby.

Cairo Santos (Kansas City, $5000)
Should have lots of opportunity against Chicago.

Mason Crosby
