DraftKings NFL: Week 15 Declarations

USATSI_10457943

Happy DraftKings NFL Week 15! I’m still here so obviously I didn’t win the top $1,000,000 prize last week which is fine because we have a lot to talk about including the end of the internet, brand NFL sexual assault allegations, and The Last Jedi. And, my anger toward my Dad’s side of the family for having their Christmas party this Sunday afternoon when I should be watching football doing this…

Week 14 Recap

The one question I have not heard discussed with this whole net neutrality thing seems to be the one that matters the most to Americans of all demographics–how will my access to internet porn be effected? Fuck North Korea! This shit is serious! Anyway, proclaiming Trent Taylor would emerge last week as Jimmy G’s Wes Welker may have been a stretch, but I’m a man of strong conviction when it comes to the important things in life like my DraftKings lineup, and Golden Globe nominations. Which brings me to my next point–Dunkirk isn’t a good movie. Just like one of my favorite directors Christopher Nolan, I’m never going to make all the right choices. But, that won’t stop me from keeping the faith that my next lineup will be an Oscar winning performance for all of time. That’s why I don’t get bothered by taking shots and missing on guys like Taylor. You have to dare to be great, and sometimes that leads to Dunkirking yourself in the balls. Besides, it’s my lineup and I’ll pick who ever the fuck I want!

Projected Jimmy G to Trent Taylor Yeah I Said It Stack

In fact, I’ll stubbornly be running back my Garoppolo to Taylor feature this week just out of spite. One DFS lesson to live by that I mentioned last week, is to run back misses from the previous week especially when they have a proven ability for high scoring games. Taylor had six a catch, 92 yard output in his first game with Jimmy G at the helm so you know he has it in him. When he musters a similar line this week including the duo’s first touchdown connection the ROI at his price will be higher than Warren Sapp when he gave his response to sexual misconduct allegations. As for Jimmy G, he returns to Santa Clara as a conquering hero to make his first home start in 49er attire where he has a 3-10 team favored against an 8-5 Titan team that would be the fifth seed in the AFC if the playoffs started today. That’s why quarterback is the most critical job in sports. Nay… the world!

Kenyan Drake really looked the part Monday night, and now he gets to eat his Sunday afternoon meal against a Buffalo defense that is pretty much terrible against running backs allowing the most fantasy points this season across any scoring format you can think of. He won’t be priced this low much longer, and makes for a nice bargain this week where he should have a higher floor than most other running backs in that range. While we’re discussing good deals, that Aaron Rogers guy is back this week against an average Carolina secondary and, apparently, he’s looking to fill his main man up with juice. With Rodgers return unaccounted for, this is like getting AB84 or Julio upside at $6,300 where Nelson instantly becomes a threat to be the top scoring wideout in week 15.

Projected Jimmy G to Trent Taylor Running Back Heavy Lineup

If I go top shelf in week 15, there isn’t much not to like about any player in the much anticipated AFC show down when the Pats face off with the Steelers Sunday afternoon in Pittsburgh. Bell should be in for a huge workload in an attempt to control game flow keeping TB12 on the sidelines, and Big Ben could be looking JuJu’s way a lot considering Belichick’s penchant for taking the oppositions strength away in what is projected as the highest scoring affair this week. Regardless, if I get one thing for Christmas, I hope it’s my family party Sunday ending before I have to miss a minute of this game.

Another late game that should be worth watching is the Rams at Seattle where I love Jared Goff and company to go up and down the field all day against a Seahawks defense that is in danger of missing multiple starters including their most critical run stopper Bobby Wagner. At that price, Stefon Diggs is a solid high floor/explosive upside guy that hasn’t scored a touchdown the last four weeks. He looks like a reasonable candidate for a random blow up week, right?

Position Player Salary
QB Jimmy Garoppolo  $      6,300
RB Le’Veon Bell  $      9,300
RB Todd Gurley II  $      8,300
WR Stefon Diggs  $      5,800
WR Jordy Nelson/JuJu Smith-Schuster  $      6,300/5,400
WR Trent Taylor  $      3,500
TE Ricky Seals-Jones  $      3,000
FLEX Benjamin Watson/Sammy Watkins  $      3,800/4,800
DST Vikings  $      3,500

Me on Sunday when my Aunt wants another round of pictures at 4:02….

Week 15 ATS Picks

2-3 last week to snap my steak of seven consecutive winning weeks. 47-26-2 on the season.

Chargers -1: If you’ve been reading this post week to week you probably know I like the L.A. Chargers a lot, and I absolutely love that Phillip Rivers has eight kids. I like the Chargers to remain scathing hot, and eat a W in Arrowhead Saturday night breaking a seven game drought against Kansas City. Side note: I’ve officially disowned the Lions for the rest of the year, and adopted the Chargers. Show me your lightning bolt!!!

Saints -16: The well rested Saints already have four wins of 20 or more points this season. With or without Kamara, does 31-13, 27-10, 24-6, or a 34-16 New Orleans win seem like an unreasonable outcome here?

49ers -1.5: Once you admit you’re in love, there’s no going back…

Rams +2.5: Speaking of point of no return, as mentioned Seattle’s defense–already decimated by injuries to key players–will likely be even more hampered heading into Sunday’s match up against the National Football League’s second highest scoring offense. At some point, the type of attrition that Seattle’s defense is facing is too much even for the heroics of Russell Wilson to overcome. Rams bounce back, and go for 30 plus winning big in Seattle Sunday.

Patriots -3: TB12 and company aren’t losing Sunday after that shit show in Miami Monday night. It’s not happening. Brady be like…
