Thursday Week 7 Selections
We have heard your requests for us to provide our insights and thoughts about players in the Thursday game each week. We haven’t focused on this game, simply because these players aren’t eligible in the main contest each week but there are some great value tournaments that do include these players so here we go.
For this week, we have the 49ers and the Seahawks. A game that the last couple of years has been an exciting matchup and mostly defensive play. This year, both teams are struggling and there aren’t too many standouts from a fantasy perspective. In fact, I suggest that there won’t be a single player in this game that ends up on the winning lineup for the full week $1,000,000 challenge. That said here are some guys to consider:
- Garrett Celek – Face it the Seahawks can’t stop the TE position this season, look for him to be a cheap, yet productive play with a projection of 8.6 and a salary of only $2,500.
- Carlos Hyde – The 49ers will run the ball and Hyde will get all of the work load. He probably cracks the end zone once and gets you a 12.8.
- Jimmy Graham – The Seahawks have made a concerted effort to get him the ball and he comes off a 100 yard performance. I don’t trust this much but it wouldn’t surprise me to see him go over a 100 yards again without a td this week.
