DFS Fantasy Plays
Jared Goff vs. PHI (ranked 21st against QB)
I’m buckled in for the wild ride that is about to be the Goff/Wentz Showdown! I am shaking with excitement for this matchup between the Eagles and the Rams. I hesitantly lean toward Jared Goff in cash games this weekend. The Eagles are ranked 21st against the QB position whereas the Rams are in the top-five against the QB. Wentz is an absolute stud and worthy to be in the MVP conversation, but I predict Goff has another 350+ yard passing game with three touchdowns.
Jimmy Garoppolo @ HOU (ranked 31st against QB)
The 49ers are back! Kind of. Jimmy G was slinging it in his first start and gets a struggling HOU secondary
Theo Riddick @ TB (ranked 25th against RB)
Coming off a game going 9-for-41 on the ground and a score, while adding five catches out of the backfield for another 41 yards in a matchup with the Baltimore Ravens, I expect Riddick to find chunk yardage and pay dirt again on the easy Tampa Bay defense in sunny Florida. Abdullah has slowly been recovering from a neck injury all week and it makes sense for the Lions to limit his usage and go heavy with the Chronicles of Riddick.
LeSean McCoy vs IND (ranked 26th against RB)
McCoy has had two 100 total yard games in the past three weeks. They will lean on him in a good matchup with the Colts starting DT banged up.
Dez Bryant @ NYG (ranked 20th against the WR)
Dak has had extra time to recover from his bruised hand since Thursday, November 30th and the Giants placed Janoris Jenkins on IR. Dez still had seven targets his last game and with that many looks on a crippled Giants secondary. He’ll have the opportunity to take advantage in what is sure to be a fun division rivalry.
Golden Tate @ TB (ranked 30th against WR)
Matthew Stafford isn’t at 100% and quick passes should be on the menu to Tate. TB hasn’t covered WRs all year and this should be a good spot for Tate.
