At The DiRT Canon, our matchups not only consider what the player’s opponent has given up to a position, we go all the way down to the depth chart position for that player and what that defense has given up to that position. We also consider, this information for the current season and ever in the past along with incorporating home or away. We have then added our own personal flavor where we don’t bother providing you with players that aren’t going to play or are basically irrelevant so we have established a custom figure of projection for each position that we also filter by. What does this mean? It means that we aren’t going to tell you some third string guys whom have the lowest opponent value for the week but instead we are looking to display players that are expected to at least get you the minimum amount of points needed from that position in order to #Win.

There are only a handful of projected matchups that should create a set of players that will produce above and beyond their typically output this week. Unlike last week, where we had top WR’s playing bottom 10 pass defenses and the same situation for QB’s, this week is not likely to have the same return. DC*3PO expects the minimum winning score to be under 165 on DraftKings main contest and under 140 for FanDuel. If that holds true you will need to ensure you get at least 4 of the top 9 guys on your roster in order to have a shot a cashing this weekend. So who do we have for this week? Let me kick start your lineup with one QB, one RB, one WR and then a MustHave and I will let you use our Lineup Analyzer™ to finish up the rest of your lineups here and let our system give you some additional recommendations!
The top guy to take this week is Rob Gronkowski. Yes, I know he is expensive but he has scored a TD in the game following a game he did not score in over 76% of the time, he is playing the Giants who give up the 4th most points to TE’s and that is only because they played TB last week or they would still be leading this category. The QB to consider mainly due to price is going to be Kirk Cousins. As of this morning just over 8% of the field is on him already this week, so he might not be a true #Sleeper but he will produce 300+ yards and 2 TD’s. The RB to consider this week is going to be James Stark. He has been inserted into the starting lineup and the Lions are ranked 23rd against the RB’s this season. Combine that with the fact that Starks has gone over 20+ fantasy points in two of his last 3 contests at home, when he got the bulk of the playing time. Last we have the WR to consider this week. You have to go with Allen Robinson this week. He gets the 31st ranked pass defense in the Baltimore Raves and he is averaging 12 targets per game over his last 5. Bortles is gonig to throw for 300+ yards and Robinson as well as Hurns are both going over 100 but DC*3PO shows Robinson having the better chance for a multi touchdown performance.
