Two weeks in and we've already lost 60 percent of our entries with Detroit and New Orleans being the big killers in Week 1.

According to the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette, Brown didn't show up to team meetings and film review on Monday.  :shocking:

Hi StatPadford,


Have you checked out weekly DFS Targets column? It might help you with some of your lineup construction.


Out of the options you listed, I might actually prefer TE Jack Doyle who is just a bit cheaper at 4K.

I was thinking I'd play Mahomes this week but all the rankings are all saying Cam. What am I missing? Is losing Jones the key here? I'm guessing the Falcons used him as the spy so maybe the thinking is the run game opens up for Cam.


The loss of Atlanta's two key defenders certainly is a big factor. I do think Cam will have more on his plate this week and with the Falcons being susceptible to pass-catching RBs, a score from McCaffrey through the air seems more likely in this game. Add in a TD to a receiver and one on the ground and you're likely looking at the top QB for the week.

If you're more comfortable with Mahomes, by all means get him in your starting lineup. I like him this week too but think the ceiling is higher with Newton, with slightly higher risk.

Go with your gut. Rankings mean nothing. Everyone is guessing.

I also firmly believe the research that used to go into rankings has declined. Lazy writers.


How is possible that you have any clue that research into rankings has declined? I assure you, it hasn't.
