Rather than choosing a few players at each tier, focusing on one lineup seems to be the best way to win.  This lineup is used for many head to head match-ups and in multiplier tournaments. If you want to maintain a steady flow of cash, play the head to head games. But if you are looking to “go big or go home” try the multiplier tournaments.

Here is my lineup for this week.

POS Player Price
QB P. Manning $15,800
QB D. Brees $16,000
RB P. Thomas $9,600
RB S. Vereen $9,300
WR K. Wright $9,900
WR D. Amendola $9,100
TE J. Graham $12,700
FLEX A. Jeffery $10,900
FLEX A. Sanders $6,600

StarStreet’s scoring system is a full point PPR, which allows us to go cheap on running backs and have a successful week. My two running backs are Pierre Thomas and Shane Vereen who are almost guaranteed to get into double digits with their matchups against Atlanta and Denver, respectfully.

At wide receiver, I decided to play it safe this week, and take two players who are likely to get a ton of targets and catches in Kendall Wright and Danny Amendola, both are cheap and could easily accrue seven to nine catches, which bodes for a good fantasy week in PPR. At tight end, Jimmy Graham is facing off in a dome against the Falcons. The Saints in prime time are almost unstoppable, and the Falcons defense is putrid. Look for Graham to get more than his worth this week.

In the two FLEX spots, Alshon Jeffery is a WR1 for the rest of the season, and this week is included. At under $11,000 he is a steal. Ace Sanders is a sneaky play, and at just $6,600, he is worth the risk as he had double digit targets last week for the Jaguars.

With the safe plays above, it left me enough cap space to get Drew Brees and Peyton Manning, who both play in primetime this week and should put up huge numbers. A combined $31,800 is a steep price to pay, but it may land 60 or more points, so it is worth the money for sure. I have had the most success with high priced quarterbacks, and will continue to go that route with the PPR scoring system allowing cheaper options at RB and WR.
