Lock: Aaron Rodgers (FD:$8.5K/DK:$6.8K) – When you are looking for locks at all positions, you want someone that gets at least two times their value. Well, Aaron Rodgers has done that in nearly every single game this season. This price is still too cheap for the way he has been playing. Now, he gets an Eagles team that has struggled all year. The Packers’ offense should be able to get a few extra possessions in this matchup as well. Expect close to three times his value this week.

Value: Mitchell Trubisky (FD:$6.9K/DK:$5.4K) – Yup, you can call me crazy for this one if you want. But, this is value thanks to good history for Mitchell Trubisky against the Lions. Trubisky has the Lions number over the last few years and that shouldn’t change in this game. The Bears’ offense has not been great, but the Lions defense is worse. Look back to Week 1 this season and there is a sample of what he can do against this team. This team is in a win-now mode, and the playoffs are not out of the picture yet. Expect around 250 yards, three touchdowns, and around 30 more yards on the ground.

Lock: Miles Sanders (FD:$7.2K/DK:$6.7K) – Continue to play running backs against the Packers. They have been struggling all year against this positional group. Miles Sanders recently came back from injury and is still working back to being a star for the Eagles. That said, Philadelphia is getting more players back every week, which will help take some pressure off others. Expect this to be a bounce back week for Sanders, with around 100 total yards and at least one touchdown.

Value: Devontae Booker (FD:$6.0K/DK:$5.5K) – Next man up for the Raiders. They do take a little bit of a hit losing star Josh Jacobs in the backfield. However, they are facing the struggling Jets this week. We all know how bad the Jets are no matter what way you look at it. The value is perfect this week for a player who is going to get a major increase in his workload. He should have a total of 20 touches with around 110 yards.

Lock: A.J. Brown (FD:$8.2K/DK:$7.6K) – What a monster season for this Titans offense from A.J. Brown. Brown has taken it to the next level this season. Now, he has a matchup with the surprising Browns team, but they will be missing a few players again in this one. Many think this game will be more of a running back showcase, but that might not be the case for either team. Expect around 100 yards receiving, eight catches, and a touchdown from Brown.

Value: Keke Coutee (FD:$4.8K/DK:$3.5K) – The Texans will need to find more weapons on offense with the loss of Will Fuller for the rest of the season. Most will be looking to Brandon Cooks in this one, but look for the number two option in this tough matchup against the Colts. This game might not be a pretty one, but the Texans do not lay down and will continue to throw the ball. Expect a big increase in targets for Coutee this weekend. He should end with around seven catches, 80 yards, and one touchdown.

Lock: Dallas Goedert (FD:$6.2K/DK:$4.3K) – It seems as if Zach Ertz might be back this week, but that will not make a big difference for this lock. Just like Miles Sanders, all these players returning only help out these two lock plays. Even with Ertz around, Dallas Goedert has shown he can be a focal point of an offense. The Eagles are going to have to do everything they can to get back into the playoff picture. The only issue will be can they keep up the scoring to match up against the Packers? They will have nearly all of their weapons back to be a functional offense again and that will make for an interesting game.

Value: Trey Burton (FD:$5.5K/DK:$3.5K) – You never know where the Colts are going to go with this position. But, over the last few games, it seems like Trey Burton has gained the trust of Philip Rivers. That said, with this game having the chance out being a little bit higher scoring the Colts passing game will have to pick it up. They seem to always use Burton close to the end zone. This could be a random two touchdown game with minimal yards.

Myles Gaskin (FD:$5.5K/DK:$5.9K) – What a perfect time for the Dolphins to have their starting running back return this season. The Bengals are one of the worst rushing defenses this season. The Dolphins are also looking to get back into their winning ways and possibly make the playoffs. The best way to control the game is with a good rushing attack. Gaskin will step back into the starting role with a few other running backs out this week and get what should be a full workload. Expect 25 total touches, 120 yards, and one touchdown.
