NFL Lineup for Draftstreet

Not everybody plays Draftkings (we highly suggest you do), and if they do, they play other sites like DraftDay or Draftstreet. Today we give to you a Draftstreet lineup that we really like. The difference between the two sites are the player positions. On DS, there are 2 QB slots which changes everything. Salary and managing your value plays is critical to filling your lineup optimally. Here we bring to your how we would fill out our DS roster.
QB: Michael Vick - Michael Vick finds himself in the situation where he is auditioning for a starting QB job in the NFL for next year.  This game is very important to the final years of his career, and he knows he has to prove himself. The Giants have given up the 8th most fantasy points to quarterbacks
this year so this could be his opportunity to show he is worthy.

QB: Matt Schaub – Although struggling of late, Schaub was just named to the pro bowl, and he must lead the Texans to a win this week in Indy for a first round bye.  The Colts’ secondary is average at best and look for Schaub to find his favorite target Andre Johnson.

RB Bernard Pierce - With Ray Rice officially out for Week 17, the rookie out of Temple is a must start!  At $5,920 he is an absolute steal! - Keith

RB: Shonn Greene - Greene is a steal this week.  The Buffalo run defense is one of the worst in the NFL, and last time the Jets faced the Bills, Greene had 2 touchdowns while almost rushing for 100 yards.  Greene’s matchup is a guy we really like to do great this weekend.

RB: Montell Owens A no brainer this week to play.  The Titans have given up the most fantasy points to running backs this year, and Owens is drawing the start this week.  What a steal at 6K.
  • Keith Toston - Montell Owens suffered a pregame knee injury so Toston gets the nod.  Doesn't seem he is an option for Draftstreet

WR Emmanuel Sanders - With Mike Wallace & Heath Miller on the IR, Emmanuel Sanders is going to lineup opposite Antonio Brown.  At $4,418 he seems like a pretty decent option at an extremely LOW price - Keith

WR: Wes Welker – Welker is coming off of a nice performance last week, and in week 13 against the Dolphins, he had 12 catches for over 100 yards and a touchdown.

WR: James Jones - Jones saw 10 targets last week and the guy just keeps racking up touchdowns.  Furthermore, the Vikings have given up the 8th most fantasy points to wide receivers this year.

TE: Greg Olsen - Olsen has a very favorable matchup this week against the awful Saints defense.  At a price of 7.1K, Olsen is a very low risk high reward play this week.

Flex: Calvin Johnson – Megatron was held to only 3 catches this year when they played Chicago, but the Lions have nothing to play for, and Johnson is gunning for 2,000 receiving yards so look for Stafford to through it his way the whole game so Johnson has a shot at the 2,000 yard mark.

Flex: Darren Sproles – Sproles had a huge game against the Panthers earlier this year, and the Panthers have given up 35 catches to running backs over the last 5 games.  Look for Sproles to have a monster game against Carolina who has given up the 5th most fantasy points to running backs this year.

Defense: Titans - A very weak defense, but earlier this year they recorded 7 sacks against the Jaguars, and the Jaguars have one of the worst offenses in the league.
