Gary Dickman’s guest on today’s show was Mitchell Renz, host of the “Oakland Raiders Report” and a Fantasy Football Ph.D.
Renz said it may be time to give up on Atlanta RB Devonta Freeman, who’s been a disappointment the last couple of seasons. Furthermore, the Falcons’ defense is bad, which means the team may fall behind in a lot of games. That would mean a higher emphasis on the passing game for the offense.
A good bet this week is Green Bay RB Aaron Jones, who had a career-high 27 touches this past Sunday against the Vikings. This week, the Packers play the struggling Denver broncos. Jones should have a good day against the porous Broncos defense.
Renz said that a good waiver wire pickup this week could be the Arizona Cardinals defense. The Cardinals are playing at home, and their opponent’s QB (Cam Newton) is banged up.
Raiders RB Josh Jacobs has been one of the best rookies so far in the season. Renz guarantees that the former Alabama star will get at least 12 touches this Sunday against Minnesota.
Later on in the show, Gary suggested a few strong plays for the week. He mentioned that WR Kenny Golladay was been really good so far for the Detroit Lions. This week, he’ll go up against a Philadelphia Eagles defense that has given up the second-most points in Fantasy Football. The Eagles’ passing defense has been bad.
Expect Dallas WR Amari Cooper to get more targets this week with teammate Michael Gallup out with an injury.
49ers TE George Kittle has had a slow start so far, but Gary advises team owners to keep him on their rosters.
The Tennessee Titans has a Top Ten defense. Tomorrow, they will play a struggling Jacksonville offense.
