Q. What one player are you most likely to include in your FanDuel lineup for the upcoming week?

A.J. Green WR, CIN: $8,000 at BAL
“One of my main strategies this season involves having two high-priced wide receivers in my lineup. One of those receivers this week will be Cincinnati’s A.J. Green. On the surface, a road matchup with the Baltimore Ravens doesn’t sound exciting, but note the history and the present. Green is averaging six receptions for 114 yards and one touchdown on 11 targets in his last three games against the Ravens. Factor in Baltimore’s secondary struggles and Green makes for a worthy start in Week 3.”
Ben Standig (CSN Mid-Atlantic)

Donte Moncrief WR, IND: $6,000 at TEN
“Moncrief has racked up a team high 13 catches, 168 yards and two touchdowns in two games and his 19 targets are only two behind T.Y. Hilton, who is banged up heading into Week 3. Moncrief has built a rapport with Andrew Luck, who lit the Titans up last season; 553 yards and six touchdowns in six quarters of work. Moncrief’s price is too nice to pass up.”
Chris Meaney (FNTSY)

Blake Bortles QB, JAC $6,700 / Allen Robinson WR, JAC: $6,600 at NE
“In order to get the most from my other positions I am going to play a stack of Bortles and Robinson. Two things can happen here, either it’s a shootout with the Patriots and Jaguars, or New England jumps out to a big lead and the Jags are playing catch up. Either way I love this stack Sunday.”
Ken Zalis (Fans Fantasy Football)

Fred Jackson RB, SEA: $6,000 vs. CHI
“Even before Marshawn Lynch was dubbed a ‘game time decision’ by Seahawks head coach Pete Carroll, I had backup RB Fred Jackson in early DFS lineups. The Hawks matchup against the Chicago Bears has all the making of a potential blowout. Many key Bears starters are out against the 0-2 Seahawks who will be playing at home for the first time this season. I feel this game will get ugly fast, and Jackson could take on second half cleanup duty. At $6,000, Jackson’s a bargain to free up FanDuel dollars elsewhere. Last week was my most successful week in daily this NFL season. My strategy was to avoid expensive underperforming running backs and buy elite WR talent.”
Mike Rigz (Gridiron Experts)

Antonio Brown WR, PIT: $9,300 at STL
“Despite the high price tag Antonio Brown is a player that will make his way into all my FanDuel lineups this week. In daily fantasy sports upside, consistency and a high floor are all crucial elements in choosing your core player and Brown checks all of these boxes. Through two weeks of the regular season, Brown is averaging nine receptions and 164 yards per game and should be able to find more room to operate this week with Le’Veon Bell returning from suspension and forcing defenses to respect the run. Brown squares off against a beatable Rams secondary this week and should haul in a high percentage of his double digit targets and find the end zone at least once.”
