Football Hotpage – Week Thirteen – What Was I Thinking?

In last week’s article I boldly projected how great Derek Carr, Amari Cooper, and Michael Crabtree would be on Sunday.  By Friday, I realized how silly that was and completely changed my lineup.  Turned out I was right to switch off of the troika.

My point is, please read this and any other information you see, for what it’s worth: someone’s opinion.  Granted, some analysts are better than others, but in the end, you are spending your money on DFS so ultimately please make your own decisions.  Certainly process what you hear during the week, but I bet if you listen to enough people, you would eventually hear recommendations for just about every player in the NFL.

So on to Week 13.  I was only able to get the wide receiver list down to 13 players.  After that, I could make a case for every single one of them putting up a big number.  Right now, I am on Cooper Kupp, DeSean Jackson, and Dede Westbrook.  Will they still be the chosen ones come Sunday?  I could not tell you for sure.

QB Philip Rivers LAC 7000 $2100 price jump over the past three weeks
QB Jared Goff LAR 6700 Over 300 yards in three of past four
