Philly Sports Wave- NFL DFS Week 7 Sleeper Picks
We continue to ride the wave after another nice profit last week. Keep checking back to this article over the weekend for any updates, injury adjustments, and other news. We may still put out a pod this weekend or do a live stream on Sunday AM. It all depends on if all three of us can be healthy and ready to go. We have all been hit with various colds over the last week. In the meantime check out these sleepers and build yourself some winning lineups.
* Reminder these picks are sleeper picks that are to be sued with high cost players to build contrarian lineups. There is always a risk involved with playing some of these and by no means do we ever want you to build an entire lineup with our sleeper picks. Use these plays to make your lineup different in GPPs and bring home some nice $$$$$.
Updates: Updates will be posted by 11am Sunday typically. As of 8AM there isn't much that has changed. We still are pretty set on our plays the usage percentage is going to be what we see changes in. Many of our top plays have moved down while some of our ok starts have moved to must plays or close to 80% of lineups. We are strictly attacking GPP this week and may not do any Cash lineups. We typically do mix in some Cash games but we don't focus on those lineups at all.
IT LOOKS LIKE WE HAVE OUR FIRST SNOWFALL!!! THERE WILL BE A SMALL AMOUNT OF SNOW FOR THE DENVER VS KC MATCHUP. NOTHING TO SERIOUS BUT WINTER IS COMING!
WR- Playing some more T Smith with Sanders and Thomas now both out for the Saints. Mike Thomas may not play next week either. His season is quickly falling apart.
We still love DIGGS and with J Brown out again (this guy loves getting hurt) we expect DIGGS to continue to be a stud. He is a clear #1. CAN YOU DIGG IT!!!!!!!!
Also in this game look for L. Murray to perhaps get involved more than the norm. If the Saints get a big lead you are going to see Murray alot because the Saints can not afford an injury to Kamara right now with their other weapons out.
Game Stacks- We are loving the SNF game! The move of the Seattle game to night was music to our ears because we expect an extremely high scoring affair at night. Metcalf is still underpriced in our opinion. Stack either QB, both teams WR and TEs. This has the potential to be a huge shootout.
We love the Carolina game for WR2 or WR3 plays.
We are also targeting players from the Steelers game to fill in for game stack surrounding studs, D. Johnson, Connor, and Claypool are great plays.
RB- If A Jones does not play (we find out in minutes) Williams is the natural play but AJ Dillon may get more involved than expected. Coach has been raving about Dillon all week and he is built better to be and every down back while Williams is a nice change of pace/pass catcher. This may be Dillon's coming out party at an extremely low cost.......THIS IS AN EXTREMELY RISKY PLAY THOUGH. HE MAY PUT UP ZERO POINTS. PLAY AT YOUR OWN RISK.
JB WEEK 7 PICKS
QB- JUSTIN HERBERT
The rookie has at least 23 points in 3 out 4 games started , and now gets too face a Jags team
that has simply been used and abused against QB’s this year . Give me the rookie here in this
Bonus Play: I also love Teddy Bridgewater this week , former team, they are throwing far more
than anyone expected good WR play ( hint hint ) and NO has not defended the pass all season .
RB- RONALD JONES II
RoJo has had 3 straight games of 20 + touches over 15 fantasy points in each one. He keeps the
good times rolling in this matchup against the Raiders who yield the second most points to
fantasy RB’s on the season . Ride this wave while you can …
WR- TERRY MCLAURIN
Dallas D is historically bad, I mean awful . God that felt good to write anyway where was I? Oh
yea Dallas D guarding Mclaurin.. its not going to happen. Dallas does not cover perimeter WR’s
and guess where good ole Terry lines up majority of routes ? you guessed it then add in the 11
td’s that Dallas has yielded to WR’s in 6 games this season and you have yourself a building
block of success here folks in Scary Terry ( Its Halloween season right ?)
TE- TJ HOCKENSON
Chol loves him some TJ and you should too this week, at a thin position this year he has gotten
a minimum of 4 targets weekly and now gets to face Atlanta who gives up the most TD’s to TE
this season in 7 and the second most total points allowed to the position on the year , Stack him
with Stafford or even Golladay and swift this matchup should be high scoring maybe highest of
Um the play the Jets …. Good luck this week
Chol's Must be the Money Picks
QB- Matt Stafford
Stafford has been gold this season and the Lions seem to actually have a legit offense. This week they face Atlanta, who have consistently given up monster games to their opponents weekly. This is a great time to throw Stafford into a GPP. He wont be extremely low owned but he will be low enough for you to take advantage and starting him naked (without any other players from the Lions) may be a solid play.
RB- Josh Jacobs
Jacobs isnt exactly a sleeper but he is a stud that hasn't been bringing home a ton of big time fantasy games recently so he may go very very very low owned. I expect him to thrive in this matchup against Tampa and in a game that should show two explosive offenses Jacobs looks to be the centerpiece of the Raiders side. Put him in at the low ownership and take advantage of it before everyone else jumps back on the Jacobs train for the rest of the season.
WR- Stephon Diggs
The guy has been an absolute stud this season so far. He has become the number 1 receiving option that Josh Allen needed. he is scoring TDs weekly and I expect at least one trip to the endzone this week as well. Lock him in!
TE- Robert Tonyan
Bobby T is the second best option in the passing game for ARod. Coverage usually goes toward Adams and the middle of the field tends to be left open for the Pack to take advantage of. Aaron Jones may not suite up this week either which means the Packers may pass the ball much more than normal. This is the perfect scenario for Tonyan to find the endzone at least once....maybe twice again!
They are underrated because their offense is so good. This is a defense that can get turnovers and possibly score TDs and that is the major $$$ maker when you pick a defense. Scoring one or more Touchdowns form a defense can be what brings home the large GPP.
