Matt Ryan: ($6,400DK, $8,100FD)

Matty Ice, or more so known as Matt Ryan is coming off a fantastic week against Houston which saw him put up a stat-line of 32/46 for 330 yards and 3TD’s, he also had a rushing touchdown in the contest. It looks like the Falcons offensive have figured everything out and are finally clicking. They will face the 32nd ranked Arizona Cardinals defense this week on the road.

Matt Ryan is projected to be rostered in 3.8% of all DFS lineups.

Gardner Minshew II: ($5,000DK, $6,900FD)

Minshew Magic had some ups and downs last week against the Panthers, some positives is he threw for 374 yards and two touchdowns. The negative however is he put the ball on the ground 3 times and lost it all 3 times. He currently has 7 fumbles this season and while he’s only lost 4 of them, it’s a stat we should be monitoring. He finds himself in an easy match-up this week against the 31st ranked New Orleans Saints defense.

Gardner Minshew II is projected to be rostered in 3.5% of all DFS lineups.

Running Back

Mark Ingram II: ($6,600DK, $7,500FD)

Mark Ingram has had a terrific start to the season, 74 carries for 372 yards (74.4YDS/G) with 6 TD’s, he is currently averaging 19.2 fantasy points per game, which is more than Ezekiel Elliott and David Johnson. He is an intriguing start this week as Ingram will be lined up against the 31st ranked run defense in Cincinnati. Expect the Ravens to be up early and pounding the rock all game.

Mark Ingram II is projected to be rostered in 9.4% of all DFS lineups.

Joe Mixon: ($5,500DK, $6,400FD)

We’re going to suggest both RB’s in the same game as Joe Mixon has also had a decent start to the year. He will face a Ravens defense that is currently ranked 27th against the run and just recently let Nick Chubb rush for 165 yards and 3 TDs. Mixon is starting to find his rhythm as he went for 93 yards on 19 carries last week against the Cardinals.

Joe Mixon is projected to be rostered in 10.6% of all DFS lineups.

Wide Receiver 

Cooper Kupp: ($7,100DK, $7,800FD)

It’s impossible to ignore Cooper Kupp at this point, Kupp had 9 catches on 17 targets for 117 yards and a TD last week against the Seahawks and will get extended rest going into the game against the 49ers after previously playing on Thursday night. Cooper Kupp is averaging 101 yards a game this season and 25.6 fantasy points. He is the undisputed #1 in the Rams offense and as a slot receiver in PPR he cannot be ignored any longer.

Cooper Kupp is projected to be rostered in 22.9% of all DFS lineups.

Michael Gallup: ($5.600DK, $6,100FD)

In dynasty and keeper leagues, there’s almost no other receiver I’d want more than Michael Gallup right now. He has shown amazing upside in this Dallas Cowboys offense with 20 catches for 339 yards, averaging 113 yards a game. He’s currently only suited up for three games as he earlier had a scope on his knee to trim his meniscus. It didn’t seem to slow him down last week, so we’re not going to worry about it. He gets the 23rd ranked Jets defense in Week 6.

Michael Gallup is projected to be rostered in 0.9% of all DFS lineups.

Tight End

Austin Hooper: ($5,000DK, $6,400FD)

Another player that is making it hard to ignore him this year, Austin Hooper is having an absolute career year for the Falcons, averaging 72.6 YDS/G and 17.5 FPPG this season. He tied Calvin Ridley for a team-high nine targets last week against the Texans and will find himself against the 31st ranked Arizona Cardinals defense this week. In a game that could be a shootout, taking a high target volume player should provide good value.

Austin Hooper is projected to be rostered in 16.6% of all DFS lineups.

Gerald Everett: ($3,600DK, $6,000FD)

Might be the most risky pick we have on the board this week, Gerald Everett has 19 targets in the last two weeks and has brought in 12 of those targets for 180 yards and a TD. However, before that he only 36 yards on 7 catches. I’m going with the recency bias in this one as it looks like the Rams may have found a solid weapon.

Gerald Everett is projected to be rostered in 5.7% of all DFS lineups.

Defense/Special Teams

Jacksonville Jaguars: ($2,200DK, $4,100FD)

Jacksonville is definitely the flavor of the week start this week for fantasy owners, in what should be a good match-up against the New Orleans Saints. Jacksonville has 16 sacks on the year but only one interception. In what should be a close divisional match-up, we’re going to take the Jaguars this week against the backup quarterback Teddy Bridgewater.

Jacksonville is projected to be rostered in 43.5% of all DFS lineups.
