TE – Jared Cook

Cost: $3,600

Season Stats: 30 catches, 377 yards, 1 TD.  



Like QB Aaron Rodgers, TE Jared Cook finished the season on a tear with 21 targets and 13 receptions in the last three games. The Giants have a very solid defense but they gave up the 6th most targets to TEs over the middle in the league.  Look for Rodgers to exploit this.  At just $3,600 this selection could yield 12-15 DFS points.

RB – Latavius Murray

Cost: $5,000

Season Stats: 195 carries, 788 yards, 12 TDs. 33 catches, 264 yards. 

Murray has been inconsistent this year and his touches tend to fluctuate. When he gets 15 touches or more he is very capable of putting up over 20 DFS points.  The Head Coach recently stated publicly how the Raiders need to get him the ball more to win.  Houston has a better pass defense than run defense and the Raider’s OL is very strong.  The best way for the Raiders to win this game on the road with a rookie QB is to use Murray in both the run game and passing game.  That is what we expect to see.
