Saturday 2 Game Slate Preview
Justin Herbert – Priced as the highest on the slate but hasn’t shown much of an upside scoring under 20 DK points in his last 4 games and now loses Mike Williams. I will be UNDER on Herbert tomorrow.
Trevor Lawrence – Real attractive price tag here for Lawrence who has shown the ability to put up 30+ points. Trevor and Justin will be the 2 highest-owned QBs tomorrow most likely around 30-35% each. I will be overweight on Lawrence tomorrow and I want at least 2 pass catchers with him.
Brock Purdy – Purdy has been the most consistent QB on this slate scoring in the range of 16-20 points and is priced down at 5.5K. I will be playing only Lawrence and Purdy tomorrow in MME.
I will be looking to jam in CMC, Ekeler, Etienne on as many teams as possible together as I feel they are the best raw points plays on the slate tomorrow. I will have some shares of Eli Mitchell as well and I will even play him with CMC as I feel the 49ers roll here and we could see quite a bit of Eli in the 2nd half. Kenneth Walker will be my fade here as he will be coming in at around 40% it looks like. The top 3 RBs will be around the 50-60% range and I will be looking to get overweight on them as much as possible.
Keenan Allen – Highest priced and most likely to score 20+ points on this slate. If I have the salary I will be trying to jam him in as well. I think we see Allen get at least 10 targets in this game and will rightfully so be the highest-owned WR on the slate at around 50%.
Zay Jones / Christian Kirk – These are my top 2 targets that I want to pair up with Lawrence in stacks. Kirk finally had a solid outing last week catching 6 of 8 targets for 99 yards and a touchdown. Kirk has the 30+ point upside in what should be the higher-scoring game. Jones is a great option on this slate and should see higher ownership than Kirk based on his price. Jones showcased his own ceiling at times this season and is the best value on the slate I feel.
Deebo Samuel / Brandon Aiyuk – I think Samuel is one of the best GPP options on the slate and should come in at around 35%. Samuel has the upside to taking any touch to the house and is used in a variety of ways. Brandon Aiyuk will get overlooked on this slate I feel and should come in at around 20-25%. Aiyuk has at least 5 targets in his last 3 games and seems to have great chemistry with Purdy.
Josh Palmer – Palmer will see a boost in usage here again as Mike Williams will miss this game. Palmer had a couple of spike weeks this season scoring over 20+ points and is a great GPP option when stacking this game up. He looks to be around 30-35% owned on this slate.
Marvin Jones / DeAndre Carter / Jauan Jennings – For ownership purposes, I think we see Carter / Jones / Jennings as the highest owned. Carter and Jones will be around 15-20% and Jennings under 5%. All are in play for large field GPPs as dart throws.
Evan Engram – Looks to be the chalk at the position as he rates out the best in projections for PT/$. Engram projects to be around double the ownership of Everett and Kittle at around 40-45%
George Kittle – If I can afford to spend up here I want as much Kittle as I can get. Purdy has been looking his way a lot down the stretch especially in the RedZone. We can get the best TE on the slate at around 25% ownership.
Gerald Everett – Projects to be around 20-25% ownership and will be a fade for me at the position.
Colby Parkinson / Noah Fant – Both look to come in at around 15-20% ownership and I prefer going with Parkinson for the savings of 2.5K as he allows you to spend up in other spots. I will be overweight on him tomorrow. Seattle should be down and passing all game and Colby has 2 or more catches in his last 3 games.
Donald Parham – I will have some sprinkles of Parham in MME as I could see him catching a few passes or finding the box as the Chargers are a little thin without Williams.
I will be playing 2 defenses tomorrow in the 2 teams I think win. The 49ers and the Jaguars with me being higher on the Jags as they project to only be around 20% owned. Herbert has been sacked a ton this year and Jacksonville has been getting to the QB at a high rate. 16 sacks in their last 5 games. They have scored double-digit points in all 5 of those games and that could be huge on this short slate.
