Week 7 produced some massive games from Tyler Lockett and Davante Adams, but it seems like there were a ton of overlooked and under talked about performances.
While Kyler Murray was a popular pick, Justin Herbert was the leading scorer at quarterback for the slate. Tom Brady and Joe Burrow were not far behind them and after Russell Wilson, Baker Mayfield topped 30 points with his five touchdown performance.
Running back? Of course, Jeff Wilson and James Robinson were the top scorers. I guess we have to expect the unexpected right?
We had some nice hits from the community this week but as we move on to Week 8, let’s review our coaches picks!
Three out of six of our coaches favorite cash play this week was Aaron Jones, but we quickly moved over to Jamal Williams in chat. At $4,000 on DraftKings and $5,000 on FanDuel he easily returned value (21.4 DK | 19.4 FD). @VGo07’s call of Keenan Allen was also a staple at 25.51 DK and 17.5 FD while @KyleDillard20’s pick of Kareem Hunt netted 19.21 DK and 17.7 FD points.
We had some monster tournament plays this week with @bellmar21 going with Kyler Murray (41.1 DK | 38.1 FD) and @snoopAloop_3 choosing AJ Brown (30.3 DK | 24.3 FD). @VGo07 and @KyleDillard20 also had solid calls with DJ Moore (25.3 DK | 23.3 FD) and Antionio Gibson (21.8 DK | 18.8 FD) respectively.
The Packers stack was a favorite across the board and it produced one of the highest scoring stacks of the week with Aaron Rodgers, Davante Adams and Jamal Williams. @VGo07’s call with the Chargers stack was a low owned, low price smash with Justin Herbert and Keenan Allen.
With the slate extended to include the Sunday night game, @snoopAloop_3’s pick of the Cardinals and Seahawks game stack blew every other game out of the water. The combination of Russell Wilson, Tyler Lockett and Carlos Hyde for Seattle and Kyler Murray, DeAndre Hopkins, Christian Kirk and Chase Edmonds for Arizona just about guaranteed a cashing lineup.
Two coaches this week nailed the touchdown calls as @nickfromcwe got two from Diontae Johnson and @snoopAloop_3 tallied one from Kareem Hunt.
@KyleDillard20 tabbed Antionio Gibson as his favorite DraftKings value also (21.8 DK) and had a solid return at $5,000.
Four out of our six coaches picked Christian Kirk as their favorite FanDuel value and although he had a huge 18.2 score, @snoopAloop_3’s call of Tyler Boyd (22.24 FD) was the highest scoring call.
