Staff Friday Cash Plays

Welcome to the midpoint of the NFL season! Time certainly has flown...

It's a new week with a new crop of injuries impacting NFL teams - serious DFS players should investigate the takes of Criag Zumsteg (collected HERE) and Jene Bramel (collected HERE) on the current injury issues impacting well-known and less-well-known NFL players heading into the weekend.

Looking at the trends among staffers for Week Eight, I note that

PK Chris Boswell is gaining momentum - Boswell ($4,500) is rostered by three experts heading into the Sunday slate of games - I wrote a brief blog post about why he's a good PK for Week Eight earlier in the week. Matt Bryant ($4,800) is the most popular place kicker showing up on five expert rosters, and Josh Lambo ($4,500)  ties Boswell with three appearances.

As Deion Sanders likes to sing "CAM!" Newton ($8,000) is a popular choice against the sinking Indianapolis' D - he's found his way onto five expert rosters thanks to an attractive matchup.  Andy Dalton ($8,100) is a pick for two other rosters - Philip Rivers ($8,500), Carson Palmer ($8,100), Eli Manning ($7,300) and surprisingly Nick Foles ($6,200) and Jameis Winston ($6,600) are all appearing on one roster apiece. Winston may be the biggest surprise given that Vincent Jackson is out this week and Austin Seferian-Jenkins is returning from a long layoff due to a shoulder injury.

Gurl-Crush Continues for the weekend lineups with five staffers including Todd Gurley ($8,100) on their DFS rosters this time around, while Justin Forsett ($6,900) is getting the MOST love with 10 appearances out of 12 rosters submitted by press time - Forsett is paired with Gurley four times; he is matched with Devonta Freeman ($9,100) three times.

High-priced Stud Receivers are back IN this week - Julio Jones ($9,200) and Antonio Brown ($8,400) appear on five and three rosters, respectively, with favorable matchups and in Brown's case the return of Ben Roethlisberger to the field of play fueling interest in their services. However, the lack of either Roethlisberger ($8,200) or Matt Ryan ($8,000 on rosters is an interesting omission on the part of the staff.

 Good luck All Y'all!
