DZ – Fantasy Sports Analyst: The Wagner Wire
Week 12 in the NFL brought more injuries, lack of production, and players stepping up their game. Chris Johnson and Tony Romo may have BROKEN your DFS/FF chances last weekend, but other players like Julius Thomas, Markus Wheaton, and Antonio Gates really stepped their game up. A new week brings a new challenge. So….Who Ya Got this week? Here are 3 players I’m rolling with for sure in Week 13!
Is he back? Has Julius Thomas joined Stella and got his groove back? He looks like he may have after a big performance in Week 12!?!? Thomas has found the end zone in back to back weeks. Last week he posted a stat line of 9/116/1TD. This week the Jags get the Titans, who are 9th worst at defending the TE position. With WR Allen Hurns likely to miss the game, Thomas should see even more targets. He has a great value for the TE position in your DFS lineup.
It’s pretty simple, he’s healthy. Chris Johnson is out for the season with a broken leg and Andre Ellington is banged up as well. David Johnson is the lead back for the Cardinals this week as they face the Rams. The Rams are allowing the 13th most fantasy points to RB’s this season. At this cheap price for a starting RB Johnson is hard to pass up!
Funchess is slowly coming into his own as a solid option for Cam Newton. He didn’t produce much against Dallas with a short week of prep but was targeted twice in the red zone. He was able to provide about 35 FF points over the 3 games prior to Dallas. This week looks to be a great chance for Funchess to really break out. The Panthers offense is facing the Saints,the league’s worst pass defense. Plus, the Panthers have had extra time to get healthy and prep since they played on Thanksgiving day. Funchess provides a great value this week with a cheap price and great match up.
Building a winning roster can be difficult. Using Just The Tip is easier than you think. The Wagner Wire is where it’s at….Just The Tip that is!!
P.S. someone put a call in to John Walsh of America’s Most Wanted….there has been an A.J. Green sighting in the Cincinnati area.
