Its playoff SZN folks and like many of you I am gearing up to battle for my spot in the Fantasy championship. For most players who have made it this far you probably already have your lineups set and ready to go. For others you’re probably looking for some type of miracle edge to take you to the promise land. Fear not young grasshoppers. Papa Chase is going to lead you through the Fantasy Jungle to a mystical place called the waiver wire to give you one key sleeper at each position to get you to the top.
Nick Foles (Eagles)
As the old adage goes, “Don’t fix it if it aint broken”. Unfortunately Carson Wentz is broken but with Nick going up against a Giants defense giving up the most points to Quarterbacks in the league he’s tough not to plug and play (ONLY IF YOU NEED HIM) Foles has been around the league for quite sometime and has had flashes of greatness. With receivers Alshon Jeffery, Nelson Agholor and TE Zach Ertz I don’t see this matchup as too big of a problem.
Juju Smith Schuster (Steelers)
If you follow me on twitter or listen to our podcast you know I’m a big fan of Juju. He is the future of Pittsburgh and at only 20 years old (Youngest cat in the league) he has had his games where he’s been a valuable play. This week Juju has a struggle bus of a defense he’s going up against (New England Patriots) and coming off of his suspension, He will be hungry for some football!
Mike Davis (Seahawks)
The Seahawks have had some struggles this year with finding the run game but Mike has really shown that he can bulldoze. Keep in mind that he is questionable due to injured ribs and groin but he’s facing a Rams defense giving up 4.7 yards per carry to opposing RB’s. Keep a close eye on him and if he’s cleared to play start this feller!
Ricky Seals-Jones (Cardinals)
Y’all ready to get Rickidy Rickidy Rickidy Wrecked!? Mr. Seals-Jones hasn’t put up big numbers in the past two games but if you’re playing matchup you already know that the Redskins give up the 3rd most points to opposing tight ends. Ricky should get his wings this week and soar like the Cardinal he is above the turf all the way to the end zone. As you can tell. I like me some Ricky!
Don’t sleep on these guys if you’re having playoff struggles and always remember.. DONT TINKER ONCE YOU SET YOUR LINEUPS!!
Trust your gut and rock and roll guys!
