Welcome back to another week geared towards cashing in on that huge pay day. Last week we had a decent lineup with every position getting into double digits, besides an under performing Greg Olsen (at least he's on bye this week so he doesn't have the chance to screw things up again). Looking ahead to this week we are investing in a QB/TE pairing to come through and playing a bargain basement RB to help us afford the finer things in life.
QB - Alex Smith, KC - $6,900 vs. CHI: Coming off a career high in yardage against Cincinnati, Smith now gets a home matchup against a weak Bears defense. This game has potential for a high scoring affair, which should add a higher point ceiling to Smith's already consistent floor.
RB - Le'Veon Bell, PIT - $9,000 at SD: This is the dream play of the week. With Roethlisberger still sidelined, Pittsburgh will be utilizing Bell heavily in the run game and with check downs. It doesn't hurt that the Chargers are giving up a league worst 4.9 yards per carry to opposing running backs so far this year.
RB - Anthony Dixon, BUF - $4,500 at TEN: The value is too good to pass up being able to play a starting running back for the minimum price in a decent matchup. Not expecting Boobie to break off huge chunks of yardage, but he will get a high volume of carries as well as all goal line work.
WR - Julio Jones, ATL - $9,200 vs. WAS: Julio didn't get many opportunities in a blow out game against the Texans in week 4 but he gets a nice matchup at home against the Redskins. Look for Atlanta to air the ball out frequently to avoid a Washington run defense giving up the second fewest yards per game this season.
WR - Larry Fitzgerald, ARI - $7,400 at DET: While Fitzgerald didn't find his way into the end zone last week, he still put up 7 catches for 99 yards against a tough Rams defense. He has a much better matchup this week against a Detroit defense giving up almost 300 yards per game to opposing receivers.
WR - James Jones, GB - $6,400 vs. STL: It looks like Davante Adams will be missing another week with his ankle injury, which means Jones will once again provide great value at his low price tag. Possibly a tough matchup in this one, but betting on the Green Bay passing game in Lambeau is never a bad thing.
TE - Travis Kelce, KC - $6,500 vs. CHI: Purely a pairing play to Alex Smith, albeit with one of the top tight ends in the game. Feels like a thunderstorm is brewing...
K - Stephen Gostkowski, NE - $5,000 vs. DAL: Why not go with the kicker averaging the most fantasy points per game the past 3 years in a row?
DEF - Broncos, DEN - $5,000 vs. OAK: Expecting the Denver defense to capitalize on a few Oakland mistakes and make their way into the end zone this week.
