Need some advice on who to start this week so you can get the edge in your Fantasy Playoffs? Well look no further, here at DTR we have some of the best fantasy advice around. We will bring you the latest updates so you can get the edge in the playoffs. Lets begin!
RB Dalvin Cook vs. Miami Dolphins
Cook’s carries have started to increase in recent weeks and with the firing of their OC he should only get more. Dolphins makes him a solid option this week as they have surrendered almost five yards per rush attempt and the sixth-most fantasy points to opposing home running backs this season. Look for the Vikings to run the ball more and get back on track with Cook.
QB Jared Goff vs. Philadelphia Eagles
Goff put up his worst fantasy performance ever, scoring minus-0.30 fantasy points in a loss to the Bears. If you still have hope in him, I’d would start him this week when the Eagles visit the Rams. Eagles defense has allowed a 106.4 passer rating and the third-most points to opposing quarterbacks at home this season. Plus there is no way he could put on the same performance again…… right??
WR Julian Edelman vs. Pittsburgh Steelers
Edelman produced his best stat line of the season so far in a last second thriller loss to the Dolphins. He should tear apart the Steelers defense this week as they have given up the most yards, eight touchdowns and the third-most fantasy points to slot receivers this season. Edelman needs to be in your lineup this week as the Patriots look to beat the Steelers once again.
WR Brandin Cooks vs. Philadelphia Eagles
Cooks has been stinking up the fantasy boards in recent weeks, scoring a combined 15.4 fantasy points(Yikes). Hold steady this week though as he faces a poor Eagles defense at the Coliseum Their defense has surrendered the most yards and 11 touchdowns to receivers who have line out wide in 2018. So look for Cooks to have a good bounce back game this week in prime-time.
RB Marlon Mack vs. Dallas Cowboys
Mack has been a fantasy dud in recent weeks, as he saw 14 touches and scored 9.3 fantasy points in a win over the Texans. He’ll be worth a spot on the bench this week against the Cowboys, who have allowed an average of just 3.6 yards per rush and the seventh-fewest fantasy points (20.8 PPG) to running backs this season. Sit him with confidence as you look elsewhere for RB2 help heading in your playoff game.
WR Kenny Golladay vs. Buffalo Bills
I get it, it’s the playoffs and you need all the help you can get. Unfortunately, Golladay’s totals have shot down recently, and his 2.5-point performance last week was not helpful for most fantasy owners looking to advance. He should stay on your bench this week as he faces CB Tre’Davious White and the Bills, who have allowed the third-fewest fantasy points to receivers this year. Don’t risk the biscuit this week and start another day.
QB Matt Ryan vs. Arizona Cardinals
Don’t expect this to be a feeding frenzy when Matt Ryan and the Falcons play against the 3-10 Cardinals. While Ryan plays better at home, keep in mind that the Cardinals have allowed the third-fewest touchdowns passes (16) and the third-fewest points to the position. Plus Patrick Peterson will be guarding Ryan’s favorite target Julio Jones and will limit his effectiveness.
TE Chris Herndon vs Texans
Herndon only saw two targets last week, but faces the Texans, who have allowed four TE touchdowns over the past six games.
QB Josh Allen vs Detroit Lions
Allen has posted at least 99 rushing yards in his past 3 games and he should continue with these numbers on the ground. Although, the Lions have given up huge passing numbers to opposing mobile QB’s this year and will may do the same with Allen in order to limit the damage on the ground.
RB Doug Martin vs Cincinnati Bengals
The Cincinnati Bengals have been extremely poor against running backs over the last eight games. Nine running backs have scored over 14 fantasy points in PPR scoring, six RBs have scored over 20! Plus he has scored in three straight games and has seen his workload increase in games when the Raiders close throughout the game. Martin is a solid option this week with upside against a poor Bengals team with no offense.
