Quarterback

Worth Paying Up For
  • Josh Johnson: JJ is getting into a groove and is the 2nd highest priced QB on the slate. The emergence of Tre McBride has his go to guy with Spruce down has made these two a great pairing. Tampa has played well the last two weeks, but so has Johnson. Johnson still hasn’t made use of his legs, and I believe he eventually will. When he does he’ll absolutely break the slate. I want to be on that before it happens.
Value
  • BJ Daniels: if we can get Jim Zorn to announce a starter, BJ Daniels’ combo of price and rushing ability will make him the best play on the slate. Silvers was dreadful last week and looked like he shouldn’t even be on the team. Daniels doesn’t have the best arm, but he has the ability to get out in the open and make some plays. He’s also capable of throwing deep, which Silvers is not

Honorable Mention: Jordan Ta’amu

Runningback

Worth Paying Up For
  • Cameron Artis-Payne and Lance Dunbar: these guys are the two best backs in the league. They have been getting it done on the ground and through the air thus far. Maybe a surprise to some, but Lance Dunbar leads the league in catches and he’s a runningback. With Landry Jones hurt, and going up against NY, it makes sense to have them as the focal point of the offense. Nelson can’t throw across my living room, so he will have to get it to his backs.
Value
  • Darius Victor: The ability to pay down is pretty much gone now that pricing has adjusted. NY is terrible, but Victor has looked good. He ran over a few people last week as well. He’s been carrying the mail for NY, but if you think it can stay close, then Victor is a good play. Last week he really didn’t make a mark in the passing game, but he is capable of catching 3 or more balls.
  • Christine Michael is questionable, but he is a great value if he plays. It’s basically a 50/50 split with Jones

Honorable Mention: Deveon Smith, Matt Jones, Jacques Patrick, Donnel Pumphrey, Kenneth Farrow

Wide Receiver

Worth Paying Up For
  • Tre McBride: after fighting injuries to start the season, McBride has finally found the light. He’s dominating the targets and making the most of them. It’s easy to see why he was in the NFL. Johnson likes to have his guy and McBride is just that. He’s moving all over the field and has the route tree to make plays in multiple ways
Value
  • Sam Mobley: As we know, Houston has the best QB and the best offense in the league. Thankfully Coates is out this week, ascending Mobley up the depth chart. Mobley just missed having a good day last week, and now his snap count will be up. In a week where Value is slim, Mobley should be one of the most popular plays on the slate
