The Winning Lineup


Matthew Stafford (37.9 Points) and Calvin Johnson (31.6 Points) finally got back on track after the Lions 0-5 start. This popular QB / WR combo was not highly owned, with only 4.6% of teams rostering Stafford. However, the Lions scored 37 points against the Bears D, proving that this time of the year is a great time to go with veterans who are off to a slow start.

DeAndre Hopkins was one of the most popular picks of the week, being selected by 33% of all teams. He was facing the Jaguars and at a discounted price, his line of 10 catches, 148 yards, and 2 TDs was plenty valuable.

Chris Ivory has found his way onto a few million dollar rosters this year, putting up good stats while staying under the radar for the Jets. His matchup at home vs Washington was a good one, and he made the most of it with 196 total yards and a TD.

Steve Smith of the Baltimore Ravens has also been on quite a few winning rosters this year. While he has always been a deep threat throughout his career, his pairing with Joe Flacco has made him the perfect high risk, high reward option in fantasy football. A look at Smith’s game log shows that he is a player with a lot of variance. Week 1, he only had 2 catches for 13 yards, but week 3, he had 13 catches and 186 yards for 2 TDs. If you are looking to win a big tournament, choosing players with high upside like Smith is a great strategy.
