Fantasy Chef's Week 5 Menu
HERDY, GERDY, BURDY, BORK-BORK!!!! Last weeks treats tasted delicious going down but it had alittle to much Mecole Hardman sprinkled throughout. The main course of Wilson and Dissley did not disappoint one bit though so I know that most of the diners are satisfied....BORK BORK! This week I have a special menu that I prepped extra hard for:
Carlos Hyde RB Hou
Hyde is something sweet to start your meal off with. A delicious treat that is expected to get a full work load and projections show him finishing over 90 yards rushing and a touchdown. He should also get a few receptions in the passing game. Nice little starter to get your juices flowing.
UPDATE: David Johnson RB Zona
Johnson is priced to low and figures to be a huge part of the Cardinals offense and after watching what the Steelers did to the Bengals defense on the ground on Monday it is easy to see DJ having a Grade A top choice steak kinda day
Now this starter isn't for everyone. They are going to give up passing yards. That is the product of their bend dont break defense but against the Jets I see much more to it. I expect the Eagles to create turnovers and keep the Jets running game in check. This could be a huge week for them. I doesn't hurt to try something different every once in awhile.
Lamar Jackson QB Balt
Jackson faces the Steelers on a short week after Pittsburgh played on Monday Night against another division rival. The Steelers D looked great on Monday but the Bengals dont have close to the firepower that Baltimore does. I expect Jackson to blow up and pass for over 350 yards and 40 yards rushing. 3 TDs is just what the Chef needs to send you home happy!
The second entree option this week throws it back to an oldy but a goody. Tyler Eifert is the tightend to face the much talked about Arizona secondary. Zona has been destroyed by tightends this season and even old man Eifert has a big game left for them. Try it out if you want some retro feels.
Adam Thielen Minn WR
This is special for my customers. We dont use White Chocolate often for dessert but had to whip it out this week with Thielen going up against the NYG Defense. He should easily pass 100 yards and find the end zone at least once, especially, since Kirk Cousins came out and said that he missed him in open space a lot last week. Cousins will force this bug day on us.
Fantasy Chef's Doggie Bag:
Zeek Elliott is going to have a field day against the Packers run defense. He hasnt had a monster game yet. It comes this week. Bring this one home to the Mrs.
Enjoy your feast!
