has been ruled out for week 14, so Shepard is firmly on my radar. He really wasn’t before this news broke, but he posted some monster lines without Odell in the lineup at times last year.
At this cheap price and given the Redskins struggle against the pass (28th vs. WRs), I don’t mind rolling the dice. ig you want a cheaper option, DaeSean Hamilton ($4.5k) is a fine try with Emmanuel Sanders (achilles) done for the year.
TE: David Njoku – Cleveland Browns ($5.3k)
Travis Kelce and Zach Ertz are worth paying up for this week, but Njoku has an awesome matchup against Carolina (30th vs. TEs). He hasn’t popped off in a bit, but this is a great matchup for him and I wouldn’t be shocked to see him rack up 70+ yards and 1-2 scores.
Finding value at tight end can be very helpful in the roster building process. Hopefully Njoku can wreck and the top two tight ends underwhelm. That being said, I’d probably get exposure to Kelce and Ertz in most of your lineups.
FLEX: Ezekiel Elliott – Dallas Cowboys ($8.8k)
I love the top stud rushers this week, per usual. Fortunately there is a lot of value to incorporate into your NFL DFS lineups, so it’ll just come down to what your personal preference is.
Zeke has been a straight up monster this year and he’s especially good at home. The Eagles aren’t bad against the run by the numbers, but he did hang 33 fantasy points on them in Philly a few weeks back. He feels like a lock for me on this slate.
DEF: New York Giants ($3.5k)
The Broncos are probably the top defense to eye this week, but I am digging the value associated with the G-Men. They get to face Mark Sanchez and a truly banged up Washington team and I’m not sure they need a better sell than that.
