DraftKings Ballers and Bums – Week 11

Recapping this weeks’ DraftKings Starts of the Week. A few good calls (ballers), a few bad calls (bums)…

– Ballers –
Quarterback
Marcus Mariota: 25/38, 290 yds, 2 TDs (5 rush, 29 yds) – 22.5 DK FPTS

Mariota continues to roll.

Blake Bortles: 22/35, 202 yds, 2 TDs, 2 INTs (1 rush, 3yds) – 14.38 DK FPTS

For the price, I’ll take it, but the 2 interceptions killed his day.

Running Back
Le’Veon Bell: 28 rush, 146 yds, 1 TD (8 rec, 55 yds) – 37.1 DK FPTS

If you spent big on Bell, you were handsomely rewarded.

LeSean McCoy: 5 rush, 33 yds, 1 TD (2 rec, 12 yds) – 12.5 DK FPTS

McCoy left in the 2nd quarter, with a dislocated thumb, and didn’t return. At least he got off to a good start, so he wasn’t really a bum… Not really a baller either, but he finished in the Top-20.

Wide Receiver
Julian Edelman: 8 rec, 77 yds, 1 TD (2 rush, 12 yds) – 23 DK FPTS

He didn’t quite hit 10 catches, but can we count his 2 rushes and say I called it?

Rishard Matthews: 9 rec, 122 yds – 24.2 DK FPTS

I mentioned him as a backup option, and I’m taking credit for it. *shrug*

Doug Baldwin: 4 rec, 104 yds (1/1, 15 yds, 1 TD) – 22 DK FPTS

Also mentioned as a backup option, taking credit for this one as well.

– Bums –
Quarterback
Ben Roethlisberger: 23/36, 167 yards, 2 pt. conv. – 8.68 DK FPTS

My concerns came to fruition. Run heavy attack, plus the weather, limited his production.

Running Back
Isaiah Crowell: 8 rush, 10 yds (5 rec, 13 yds) – 7.3 DK FPTS

You can’t be mad, given his $3,900 salary, but expected more.

Wide Receiver
Allen Robinson: 3 rec, 18 yds, 1 TD – 10.8 DK FPTS

The touchdown saved a dreadful day. I mentioned the Lions had done a good job containing #1 WRs, they did it again.

Tyreek Hill: 4 rec, 53 yds (1 rush, 8 yds) – 10.7 DK FPTS

Again, can’t be mad with his production at only $4,500, but would’ve liked more.

Tight End
Delanie Walker: 4 rec, 36 yds – 7.6 DK FPTS

The Colts made it a point to not let Walker beat them, and he didn’t.

Julius Thomas: 3 rec, 12 yds – 4.2 DK FPTS

Bortles threw for 200, but spread the ball to 8 different receivers. Only 2 – Ivory, and Lee – had more than 20 yards receiving.

Ladarius Green: 0 rec, 0 yds – 0 DK FPTS

0-3 sweep on TEs this week (it’s hard work being this good). Green saw only 2 targets on the day.

QB: 2 Ballers, 1 Bum

RB: 2 Ballers, 1 Bum

WR: 3 Ballers, 2 Bums

TE: 0 Ballers, 3 Bums

DST: 0 Ballers, 0 Bums (Cardinals – 6 DK FPTS, Seahawks – 7 DK FPTS, Dolphins – 7 DK FPTS)

Overall: 7-7
