- QB: Mike Liu (@MikeMeUpP)
- RB: Erik Kortz (@ekballer)
- WR: Tristan Cook (@tristancook_)
- TE: Mychal Warno (@dynastydadmike)
- FLEX: Tyler Grzegorek (@tyler_grez)
Sony Michel (RB27)
In a game vs the Bengals that could get out of hand quickly, Michel could receive an ample amount of carries. There should be plenty of scoring opportunities for the Patriots offense and all you’ll really need is for Michel to just punch one in from the goal line to make him a FLEX worthy play. I’m not sure how much I like his partner in crime, James White, because of how quickly the game could get out of hand. You can expect a solid 10 points from Michel this week. I’ll take that in my FLEX any day.
Larry Fitzgerald (WR46)
In another potential high scoring game, I really like Fitzgerald at home this week. For most of the season, he’s had a solid 8 point floor in half point per PPR scoring formats. I fully expect Fitzgerald to hit that floor this week. Add in the chances for a high scoring affair and I don’t think you’ll be disappointed for playing Fitzgerald in your FLEX this week.
Patrick Laird (RB30)
Hopefully you’re not at the point of having to play Patrick Laird in your starting lineup at all, but it is the time of year where injuries are really testing the depths of your bench. There are worse options than Laird at this point. Bottom line, Laird’s got a good matchup this week and is technically a starting running back on his respective team. If you’re in a pinch, you should feel pretty confident trotting Laird out to fill up your starting lineup.
Ronald Jones (RB31)
Another good matchup here. Jones and the Buccaneers pull the Detroit Lions this week. For a team that spent a number of resources to stop the run this past offseason, they’ve been overall disappointing. Ronald Jones has had some bright flashes this year that should make Jones shareholders excited for the future. Similar to Laird, I don’t love the play simply because Jones has been so up and down all year long. Sometimes you’ve just got to take the risk with a matchup and a talented player. It takes guts to win a championship and sometimes that means going a little off the wall.
James Washington (WR45)
The Steelers draw the Buffalo Bills this week and to me, that does not bode well for many, if any of the Steelers fantasy prospects. The Pittsburgh defense will be fine and ultimately this should be a really good game, but I’d be willing to bet money that this will be a low scoring affair. There’s just not much that I like about the matchup at all. I’d definitely be looking elsewhere for such a crucial position.
