Here is what I’m looking at this week.
On the left is my GPP lineup, with cash on the right.
Let’ start with cash. Derek Carr is looking at a high-wind game, but the Raiders are built around the short-intermediate passing game already, so I don’t see as much of a downtick there as a typical QB would in 30 mph winds. Henry is almost auto-start at this point. Hunt is running it back against Carr in case the wind does prove problematic for Mayfield, and the Raiders are 29th in rush defense DVOA. Adams is a cash-play must at this pint, while Mims and Robinson are my low dollar flyers. Jonnu Smith is a guy I have used several times this year.
For GPP, I swapped out Carr for Herbert, despite Denver being a top 10 DVOA defense. This is more of an ownership play than a matchup play. Herbert sits in between other, more attractive options and I think will be largely ignored this week. Adams is looking to be around 40 percent ownership, which should eliminate him from GPP lineups, but I still shoehorned him in here with the rookies because I could. Bourne is the latest “last man standing” in San Francisco.
