Week 16 DFS Dose

Dylan Cooper

  

 

Wide Receivers:

 

Julio Jones (Atlanta Falcons): Julio is back just in time for his bi-annual slaughtering of the Panthers. He looks to be at full health and his price is at its lowest of this season. Unlike last year when Julio torched the Panthers, this season everyone is torching the Panthers. They have the 27th ranked receiver fantasy defense. Facing this D, the Matt Ryan/Julio Jones stack has amazing upside for tournaments this week and Julio is also cash viable with no top running backs to pay up for.

 

DeAndre Hopkins (Houston Texans): Hopkins was selected in the first round of most fantasy drafts, but has played absolutely awful this season. Last week Hopkins produced as we originally expected with Savage at QB. Hopkins was definitely Savage’s top target, as Hopkins received a 17 target market share in Savage’s first game. As a result, Savage’s success is highly correlated to Hopkins, making this a great cheap stack at half the price of Ryan/Julio.

 

Cameron Meredith (Chicago Bears): Facing the Washington Redskins, top receiver Alshon Jeffery will likely be shadowed by All-Pro CB Josh Norman. Matt Barkley has 30+ passes to spread out and with Jeffery for the most part covered, Meredith should be the biggest recipient of these touches. Coming off of a 13 target week, Meredith makes a great mid-range receiver play in all formats.

 

Others in Consideration: Mike Evans (Tournament Only), Michael Thomas, Julian Edelman, Kenny Britt (Tournament Only), Donte Moncrief
