Reviewing my recommendations from last week, the player that certainly has to be given some sort of recognition is Le’Veon Bell. Some players may have found themselves in a hole going into Monday night, and needed a miracle from Bell, well that’s just what they got. Bell posted 12 carries for 57 yards, 8 receptions for 88 yards, and a big touchdown to lock up 24.5 points. This week my recommendations won’t have you sweating out Monday night.
Elite: Andrew Luck ($9,900) – As mentioned last week we want to assemble a cash game team with highest projected “floor” scoring. Andrew Luck has the highest floor of all quarterbacks at 19.88. This week he draws the Pittsburgh Steelers, who has a soft secondary, who did a good job against Ryan Fitzpatrick, but we all know Fitzpatrick isn’t Andrew Luck. Vegas has this game at approximately 50 points, with the Colts projecting to score more than half of the points. With Trent Richardson as your running back you know the Colts will be relying on Luck heavily, to put points on the board. Look for Luck to outshine all quarterbacks with not just his arm, but his legs as well.
