It’s Thursday and that means Fantasy Football picks of the week!

I’ve got some picks I like and some I LOVE!

Once again, If you are wondering if Aaron Rodgers should star against the Lions, that’s not what I’m here for…

RB-Melvin Gordon (Chargers) – He’s proving a lot of people wrong. He’s running with strength and ferocity and let’s face it, he plays the Colts and they’re not good. He’s got three TD’s in in two games, I’ll be surprised if he doesn’t get two more.

WR-Jeremy Maclin (Chiefs) – Three things are certain this season… Death, taxes and the Jets giving up LONNNNGGGG passes. Roll against that secondary until they prove they have fixed things.

WR-Jordy Nelson (Packers) – He’s had a slow start in his return, but Aaron Rodgers is almost always money at Lambeau Field and the Lions defense is really banged up after their game with the Titans. I expect a big game from Nelson, at least one long score.

RB-Legarrette Blount (Patriots) – With Jacoby Brissett starting at quarterback, I expect a ton of touches for Blount. No, I don’t like a match up with the Texans, but the sure volume of touches is too much to pass up on.

TE-Delanie Walker (Titans) – Yes, he a little dinged but, the Raiders struggles at middle linebacker and safety make him an extremely appealing play once again. He also appears to be the Titans only real threat to stretch the field. He gets a go.

RB-Theo Riddick (Lions) – With Ameer Abdullah out he’s a screaming play. His touches will be higher and in PPR leagues he was already good play before the injury.

Other likes… Travis Benjamin, Julius Thomas, DeMarco Murray, Marcus Mariota, Ezekiel Elliott, Dolphins defense, Cowboys defense, Allen Robinson

DON’T PLAY:

WR-Emmanuel Sanders (Broncos) – He’s had a modest start, but he could have a quiet day in Cincinnati.

QB-Russell Wilson (Seahawks) – Can’t believe I’m saying… He’s on my team.. If you have a decent match up at backup roll with it. That line is not good and he’s hurting.

RB-Matt Jones (Redskins) – It’s been a struggle so far and I don’t see it getting better against the Giants.

WR-Desean Jackson (Redskins) – Ditto

TE-Colby Fleener (Saints) – He should be good, but he’s just not. He’s had years to prove it and he has, he’s a bust, move on.
