John Hazelet's Daily Fantasy: Thanksgiving Edition
Week 12 Thursday Only!
Ben Roethlisberger 8500 @ Colts: Ben is coming off of a low output fantasy week. I think he can get healthy against a poor Colts D. This could be a great shoot out to watch as you finish your pie.
Kirk Cousins 7400 @ Cowboys: Good value here for a guy who has played very well this season. I don’t think the Redskins will win but I see this being a close game in which Cousins will put up some yards and a few TD’s.
Le'Veon Bell 9500 @ Colts: Best RB in the sport vs one of the worst defenses in the league.. I like those odds! Not sure Bell reaches his numbers for week 11 but I think he should be in the ballpark.
Ezekiel Elliott 8600 vs Redskins: The sure fire ROY is sure to make a big splash on his first Thanksgiving game. I will lay the 8600 and roll to 100+ Yards and 2 TD’s
Rob Kelley 5700 @ Cowboys: Not chasing his 31 FDP’s from Sunday night but Kelley has clearly emerged as the Skins RB1 and I think he will see a lot of touches. My only fear using him this week is if the Cowboys blow the Skins out. If the game stays within 10pts I think Kelley is a major factor.
Antonio Brown 8800 @ Colts: Colts D.. Need I say more? A.B. should be able to play to his average (17.2) FDP’s. I think he could be closer to 25.
T.Y. Hilton 8100 vs Steelers: (if luck plays)Luck’s favorite target should see a lot of targets. I like Hilton to put up close to 20.
Jamison Crowder 6300 @ Cowboys: I like the value this pick brings. Crowder will see his share of targets/touches and he is very capable for breaking one for a TD. I don’t think he will put up a ton of points but 10-15 is very possible.
Donte Moncrief 6900 vs Steelers: (if Luck plays) Great value at this price. Donte becomes the go to WR when Hilton draws double coverage. I can see T.Y. having a big first half and Donte having a big second half.
Dez Bryant 8000 vs Redskins: Finally healthy and looks like he got in sync with Dak in week 11. Bryant loves the big stage and I think he could make a big splash Thursday.
Jordan Reed 7400 @ Cowboys: I love Reed. He is the best TE available on Thursday.
Kyle Rudolph 5300 @ Lions: Lions simply do not cover the TE well. I think Rudolf can put up 15+
I can make a case for all of them playing Thursday.
Detroit Lions 4700 vs Vikings
Minnesota Vikings 4600 @ Lions
Pittsburgh Steelers 4300 @ Colts
