Hopefully you were able to check out my week three picks and use them to your advantage. Just like anyone that writes advice columns, there are always going to be some big wins and some big losses, its the nature of the business. If you read my bit on Devonta Freeman and rolled him out there last weekend you probably had a pretty solid week. If you took my advice on Nick Foles, well there is always this week!
Week Three ended up being the week of the cheap RB as Freeman, Joseph Randle, LeGarrette Blount and Latavius Murray all easily outperformed their salaries. The lesson we can take from this is that starting RB’s in good match ups that are gonna receive a majority of the carries are excellent daily plays. This seems like a simple concept but one that many often will overlook. Freeman had an unproven track record so far in his young career but was facing a weak run defense with an opportunity for 20+ touches.
Another NFL weekend is on the horizon with a chance to get back on the winning track. If you rolled out Jeremy Hill or Marshawn Lynch with Ben Roethlisberger as your QB, you are excited for a do over Sunday.
DISCLAIMER – Salary cap numbers are based on FanDuel’s pricing for this week also does not include the game being played Sunday morning in London (Jets vs. Miami)
On to the picks!
