Thursday/Sunday Fantasy Football Lineup: Week 7

Every week, we bring you our favorite DraftKings lineups of the week. Tonight, we look at a Thursday Night Football/Sunday AM Football (2 game) fantasy lineup to double your money. We are 3/3 on double up opportunities, so let’s keep that 100% 2 game double up record going.

Given the super week offensive battle tonight, and the equally weak Sunday morning match up of Buffalo and Jacksonville…player selection and value is more important than ever.

Tonight we will wager $50 in an attempt to double it.

Want to try our lineup but don’t want to pay? Here’s 1 free lineup. Let’s get to it.

Blake Bortles is clearly the best option in this contest. Throwing for over 300 yards over the past 2 weeks, with at least 3 TDs per game, the signal caller from Central Florida is poised to continue his hot streak…garbage time or not.

RBs

Going cheap on Bortles allows us to snag up both of the premiere backs in this 2 game match up.

Marshawn Lynch starts his second game following a hamstring injury, and should get at least 17 carries to match his week 6 total. Lynch thrives in divisional match ups, and we are predicting it right here, right now…tonight will be a crotch grab night.

The Buffalo RB went full vintage LeSean McCoy last week, breaking off a huge first quarter run against Cincinnati. Also receiving 17 carries last week, McCoy looks close to 100% headed into Sunday morning…and a sure fire option to lock in points.

WRs

It’s always risky playing 2 WRs on the same team, but when the options are this limited and Bortles is projected to throw for 250-300 yards, you might as well take his top 2 targets.

Both players have been consistent under the arm of Bortles, and we see no reason to deviate from the Jags passing game. Russell Wilson has no offensive line and EJ Manuel straight up blows. We won’t even mention Colin Kaepernick.

With Sammy Watkins out, and Percy Harvin not even making the trip across the pond, Manuel has to complete at least one pass to a WR. So, hi Robert Woods.

TE

Charles Clay is a stud. EJ Manuel can’t read a defense, and will check down to his RB or TE all morning long. We’ll rely on Clay’s athleticism to make Manuel look decent on paper. But what about Jimmy Graham??

Jimmy Graham and Russell Wilson have finally found some chemistry, and we see no reason for it to drop off tonight. The 49ers are abysmal, and a scrambling Wilson will throw to his giant of a TE on a consistent basis once again.

DEFENSE

The 49ers, led by a quarterback who hasn’t progressed since his rookie year, have no chance. There’s been a lot of talk about the fall of the Legion of Boom. Look for them to make a statement tonight against a team with no offensive power, especially considering Anquan Boldin can barely walk.
