Donte Moncrief ($6300) Jaguars @ Colts – All Moncrief has done through three weeks is find the end zone in each game while continuing to pile up looks from Andrew Luck. On a team that also boasts Andre Johnson and TY Hilton it almost appears like the Colts are using Moncrief as their feature WR in most of their sets. Luck obviously has confidence and trust in him and has looked his way in the red zone. The Jaguars defense just got absolutely shredded by Tom Brady and the Patriots and I fully expect the Colts to put on a similar beat down this Sunday. There is some talk that Andrew Luck is questionable to play, so keep an eye on that prior to locking Moncrief in. If Luck does play though, Moncrief will make it four for four and score again Sunday.
James Jones ($6000) Packers @ 49ers – Jones is an interesting story as he was released by the Giants prior to opening day and has been absolutely essential to the Packers early success despite joining their team 6 days prior to their first game. Aaron Rodgers obviously has great chemistry and full trust in Jones and he continues to be a threat in the red zone. His ability to score touchdown’s also makes him a pretty safe fantasy play as he doesn’t necessarily need to catch a ton of balls to reach value as long as he finds the end zone. Arizona and Pittsburgh went pass happy and threw it all over the place against these 49ers the past two weeks and you can bet that Rogers and company will do the same thing. It looks like DaVante Adams may sit this one out as well which just means that Jones may see a few more snaps. I like him for another 100 yards and a score this week at a still too cheap price.
Amari Cooper ($7200) Raiders @ Bears – Cooper has already caught 20 balls for nearly 300 yards in his first three professional games. The hype is real as this guy is as talented as they get and isn’t taking his time getting acclimated to the NFL game. I don’t need to mention how bad the Bears are defensively but I will again as I think the Raiders break out in a big way Sunday. Cooper has an excellent chance to break off a long TD and should be a safe bet to pay off his relatively cheap salary. I also don’t mind playing Michael Crabtree ($5800) as a tournament pivot off of Cooper.
