or himself but didn’t elaborate on whe (2nd Sep 19 at 7:48am UTC)
Winning in daily fantasy isn’t always about finding contrarian picks. Yes Hakeem Butler Jersey , you want to differentiate your lineup to increase your odds at winning in tournaments, but you can’t ignore the studs that are still worth their high price tags. Here are the studs to consider for Week 10:MATTHEW STAFFORD, QB, Detroit ($6,800 DraftKings/$8,200 FanDuel)This isn’t recency bias with Stafford coming off a big Week 9 performance. Stafford would have been a terrific play even without putting up 361 yards and two touchdowns on the Packers. The Browns are strong against the run and one of the weakest teams against the pass. Only Marcus Mariota failed to throw for a touchdown against the Browns, and six of the seven other opposing quarterbacks have two or more passing touchdowns. Marvin Jones has also picked up his play over the past few weeks, helping Stafford’s numbers. The Lions running game has slowed of late setting up Stafford for a high-volume passing day and a high daily score.BILAL POWELL, RB, New York Jets ($4,000/$6,000)With Matt Forte likely out for Week 10 (make sure that he is), Powell becomes a must-own at these prices. When Matt Forte missed Week 4 against the Jaguars, Powell put up 163 rushing yards and a touchdown on 21 attempts. Powell has been hampered by splitting touches all year, but Forte’s absence would set him up for 20-plus touches. The Buccaneers are in a freefall and are among the worst teams in the league at stopping the run. Alvin Kamara just put up 152 total yards and two touchdowns against them last week, and Adrian Peterson and LeSean McCoy both topped 20 points against the Bucs in Weeks 6-7. Powell could sleepwalk his way to 3x-plus value.STERLING SHEPARD, WR, New York Giants ($5,500/$5,700)While the 49ers are slightly better against the pass than the run Chris Lindstrom Jersey , it’s just relative, as they are beyond miserable against the run. They have allowed 11 double-digit scores on DraftKings with two topping 20 points and eight double-digit scores on FanDuel. Sterling Shepard is one of the two remaining quality weapons in the Giants passing game (Evan Engram the other) and the only one of the starting receivers that’s on the field. Shepard saw nine targets last week, catching five for 70 yards and can easily reach and top that this week.CAMERON BRATE, TE, Tampa Bay ($4,100/$5,700)While we are preying on the Buccaneers defense for Powell, we’re going to do the same with Brate on the other side. Nick O’Leary, a mediocre tight end, managed four catches for 51 yards against the Bills last week. In the four previous games, David Njoku, Rob Gronkowski, Anthony Fasano and Austin Hooper all scored … Gronkowski twice. Brate came up quiet last week, but that was against a much-improved Saints defense and within Jameis Winston playing hurt, then replaced by Ryan Fitzpatrick mid-game. With a week to prepare, Fitzpatrick will be more effective this week, and Brate had come into Week 9 with five straight games with at least four catches and 60 yards.STEELERS DEFENSE ($3,700/$4,600)Often, you don’t need to overthink things when it comes to defenses. The Steelers head to Indianapolis and the Colts are allowing the most FPPG to opposing defenses (9.3). The next closest team is the Texans at 8.1 FPPG. The Colts have already allowed 35 sacks and six DST touchdowns http://www.lionsauthorizedshops.com/authentic-jahlani-tavai-jersey , both of which are league highs. Five defenses have hit double-digits against the Colts, and the Steelers boast the second strongest pass defense, only behind the Jaguars. With the Steelers also able to score plenty, they should push the Colts and Jacoby Brissett to be more aggressive, which will lead to more potential turnovers, sacks and fantasy points. Cleveland Browns linebacker Mychal Kendricks was released by the NFL team Wednesday night, hours after he was charged by federal prosecutors in Philadelphia with insider trading.Kendricks, who signed a one-year contract with the Browns in June after winning a Super Bowl title last season with the Eagles, allegedly used tips from an acquaintance to make about $1.2 million in illegal profits on four major trading deals, federal prosecutors said.The 27-year-old issued a statement earlier in the day admitting to his guilt and apologizing. He expressed regret and accepted “full responsibility” for his actions.However, the Browns decided after learning more about the case that they couldn’t go forward with Kendricks, who was going to start for the team. The Browns issued a statement after traveling to Detroit for Thursday night’s exhibition finale against the Lions. Kendricks did not make the trip.“Prior to signing Mychal, we were informed that there was a financial situation that he had been involved with in 2014,” Browns general manager John Dorsey said. “We were told Mychal had fully cooperated with investigators as a victim. From what was communicated at that time and based on the numerous questions we asked and further due diligence on our part, including checking with the league office, there was no information discovered that conveyed otherwise.“Recently, we were provided an update on the matter and the circumstances have changed. We are now dealing with a different set of facts and the additional information we’ve gathered has led us to the decision to release Mychal from our team.”Kendricks is facing possible prison time and further discipline from the NFL for violating its personal conduct policy.NFL spokesman Brian McCarthy said the league is reviewing the situation.Prosecutors allege his co-defendant, Damilare Sonoiki, was paid $10,000 in kickbacks in the scheme from 2014-2015 Kyler Murray Jersey , as well as perks like tickets to Eagles games and tagging along to a music video shoot or nightclub appearances, said U.S. Attorney William McSwain.Sonoiki had been working as a junior analyst at an unnamed investment bank in New York, prosecutors said. An IMDB profile lists him as a former writer on the popular TV series “Black-ish” as well as other movies and TV shows.In a statement released by his lawyer, Kendricks said he was sorry and takes full responsibility for his actions.“While I didn’t fully understand all of the details of the illegal trades, I knew it was wrong, and I wholeheartedly regret my actions,” he said in the statement. He also claimed he didn’t take any of the profits for himself but didn’t elaborate on where the money went. I am committed to repaying all of the funds gained illegally and accept the consequences of my actions.”Kendricks said he has been cooperating with authorities since the investigation began.McSwain along with representatives from the FBI and the Securities Exchange Commission— which filed a separate complaint — said Kendricks and Sonoiki used coded language in messages to try to hide their actions. McSwain said Sonoiki, who had limited trading powers at the time, would gave non-public information to Kendricks about acquisitions and other deals that would affect the price of securities for at least four different companies.Stephanie Avakian, co-director of the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission’s Division of Enforcement, said in one message when Sonoiki was asking for payment, he told Kendricks that he liked Philadelphia bread used in cheesesteaks more than the bread in New York and asked that Kendricks bring him some.They also had a conversation pretending to be talking about changing the number on Kendricks’ jersey to 80, meant to signify the amount of money that should be deposited into a new trading account, she said.If the men are convicted, they could face up to 25 years in prison and a fine of up to $5.25 million as well as the seizure of any profits made from the insider trading.The Browns signed Kendricks as a free agent, bringing him in to upgrade their linebacker corps following an 0-16 season. Kendricks spent six years with the Eagles, who drafted him in the second round in 2012 after he played at California.The 5-foot-11, 240-pounder recorded a team-high eight tackles in last season’s NFC Championship against Minnesota and had four in Philadelphia’s Super Bowl win.
