Hey, everyone! We weren't able to do our livestream this week, so we decided to put together this article to bring you the mediocre advice that we would have last night. First of all, PAY ATTENTION to the news about Chiefs-Patriots. Hopefully we hear something today! Let's dive in.
ThriveFantasy Prop Picks of the Week
1. Jared Goff OVER 2.5 Total Pass TDs/INTs
This one was tough, but as he's my start of the week, I have to assume he's in for a big day. Expect three touchdown passes to be thrown today.
2. Carson Wentz OVER 22.5 Total Completions
As bad as he's been, he's completing a lot of balls. That won't be any different against a 49ers team that should control the game and force the Eagles to throw.
3. AJ Green UNDER 0.5 Total Receiving TDs
Betting on touchdowns is always scary, but we've very likely seen the shift from AJ Green to Tee Higgins (much earlier than expected). AJ Green's targets will only keep coming down. Less targets, less touchdown opportunity.
DraftKings Smashes of the Week

QB: Russell Wilson ($7,800)
I mean.. come on.
QB: Dak Prescott ($7,200)
Dak has been amazing thus far and the Browns secondary is certified dogshit right now. Their overall defense and rush defense is not, however. The Cowboys gameplan should lend itself to a massive Dak Attack.
RB: Alvin Kamara ($8,000)
With the reports that this game is still being played, but Michael Thomas and Jared Cook are out, Alvin Kamara needs to be in your lineup this week.
RB: Dalvin Cook ($7,600)
Cook has been the only bright spot on a rather disappointing offense this year. The Texans are liable to gettin murdered via the run. A Cook/Kamara stack with some of the values we touch on later is looking phenomenal.
WR: DK Metcalf ($6,800)
We included him last week. Then Tyler Lockett went off. This week, I think it's DK. It may very well be both.
WR: Amari Cooper ($6,700)
The Dak/Amari stack this week should be a staple in your lineups. Amari is the consistent producer in Dallas, and that shouldn't change today.
TE: Mark Andrews ($6,000)
Coming off of a game in which he had literally 899 drops, he's headed into a phenomenal matchup against tight ends and something to prove.
TE: TJ Hockenson ($4,800)
Kenny Golladay will open things up for this entire offense, and Hock is no different. The Saints give up a boatload of points to the tight end position. Send it.
DraftKings Values of the Week

QB: Ryan Fitzpatrick ($5,400)
He gets the Seahawks porous secondary. That's the only reason.
QB: Matthew Stafford ($5,900)
Stafford will have to throw 100 times, most likely.
RB: David Montgomery ($5,500)
A starting running back on a team that just lost their pass-catching back for less than $6,000? Sign me up.
RB: Darrell Henderson ($5,800)
Has scored 21 points on average since taking over the lead role, and the Giants are very bad.
WR: Zach Pascal ($4,400)
Just feels like we'll say TY and Pascal will have 100 and 2. So I'm playing him at this ridiculously low price point.
WR: Hunter Renfrow ($4,600)
With Henry Ruggs and Bryan Edwards out this week, Renfrow should see high volume. He's going against a team that is pretty awful against slot guys, too.
TE: OJ Howard ($3,300)
Just a product of "who the hell else will Tom Brady throw to?"
TE: Mo Alie-Cox ($3,900)
He's one of the more efficient players in the league and can maximize his targets. Even with Doyle and probably Burton back, we expect MACtion to be the TE to play moving forward. That's no different this week.
