NFL Week Two Picks
Week One is in the books and it was a weird one. There were 33 passing touchdowns in Week One, the average NFL Week One has 52 passing touchdowns. It was extremely low and the high scores by defenses were amplified. This week has a couple of shootouts coming with high-octane offenses of New Orleans vs New England and Atlanta vs Green Bay. I expect a market correction and the TDs to be flying of the shelves this week. Let’s take a look at what players I like this week!
The NFL Week Two Picks:
Tom Brady ($9200 on FD, $7900 on DK) – Not a lot needs to be said about Brady going up against a Saints defense who just got torched by Sam Bradford and the Vikings. The Patriots will be highly owned as they sport a Vegas implied team total of 31.25, that is why they are a cash game option versus a good tournament play.
Matt Ryan ($8200 on FD, $7500 on DK) – A home favorite, in a dome with a Vegas implied team total of 28.5 and game total of 54. Ryan and the Falcons will be another higher owned team from a game that should be a shootout with Aaron Rodgers and the Packers in town.
Melvin Gordon ($7600 on FD, $7000 on DK) – Miami was bottom three in 2016 in yards allowed to WRs and RBs. Gordon had 23 touches in last week’s game against the Broncos and should maintain his bell cow role. Gordon had 132 total yards in last year’s meeting.
Jacquizz Rodgers ($6600 on FD, $4400 on DK) – In his five starts without Doug Martin last year, Rodgers averaged 23 touches for 105 total scrimmage yards per game and no less than 17 touches. Rodgers is a home favorite against a Bears D that just lost their best LB in Jerrell Freeman.
