If you listened to last week’s Woot and Wye Moneyball podcast you probably found yourself in the winners circle. It has taken five weeks but the NFL is starting to make a lot more sense after the craziness of the first month. With that it mind we are starting to hit our strides with our daily fantasy lineups, so without further ado here are Wye’s Week 6 weapons on behalf of Australia’s #1 NFL Podcast, The Woot and Wye Show.
Brian Hoyer ($6,800) – We’re rolling the dice with Brian Hoyer yet again. Despite throwing for nearly 400 yards and two touchdowns last week, his price has only increased by $400. He has a nice matchup again this week against the Jacksonville Jaguars. Hoyer does come with some risk because an interception or two is around the corner after two straight weeks without one.
LeSean McCoy ($8,600) – LeSean McCoy isn’t quite back to his 2013 best but he is mighty darn close! He is putting up 108.4 yards per game at a career best 5.3 YPC and is on pace to finish the season 1,735 yards from scrimmage. While McCoy might lose the occasional goal line carry to Mike Gillislee he has an extremely favourable matchup against a 49ers defense that allowed 157 yards on the ground last week without Navarro Bowman.
IF YOU CAN AFFORD IT… Both DeMarco Murray ($9,200) and LeVeon Bell ($8,800) have great match ups this week. Both playing at an elite level.
Cameron Meredith ($4,600) – Cameron Who? Another Bear? Man, Wye, you’re crazy. You cannot pass up this tremendous value. Meredith had 12 targets last week and caught nine of them for 130 yards and a touchdown. Hoyer, unlike Cutler, doesn’t hammer Alshon with a heap of targets and loves his secondary receiver. Meredith also lines up primarily on the right side of the field, Hoyer’s favourite.
Jimmy Graham ($6,500) – Jimmy Graham is back and it is fantastic for Seattle fans and the NFL. In the two games before Seattle’s bye, Graham had a whopping 12 catches on 18 targets. He is focal point in this Seattle passing game and has a desirable game against a Falcons defense that has allowed 5 touchdowns to Tight Ends and double digit games to Greg Olsen, Clive Walford and Coby Fleener.
Tennessee Titans ($4,000) – The Titans defense is surprisingly quite good. They are one of the most stingiest in the NFL and are ranked 10th in Football outsiders DVOA through 5 weeks. They have had either multiple picks or sacks in every game this season. They have a great matchup against Cleveland.
Adam Vinatieri ($5,200) – Spend up a little for a kicker? Why not, especially for Mr Clutch himself. Vinatieri has been absolutely money this season even at the age of 43. Quite unbelievable really.
