Week 3 GPP Picks on FanDuel
Cam Newton vs NO ($8,100)
Look, I’ll be honest here. I have some concerns regarding Cam Newton. If you’ve watched him play you’ve noticed a different Cam. He’s not running around with confidence. The reason we all liked him so much was that he made things happen on the ground and he would call his own number more times than not, when inside the red zone. Maybe it’s the shoulder injury or maybe it’s the amount of licks he’s taken over the past two seasons. This right here, at home against the New Orleans Saints, is a game Cam should excel in. The Saints have allowed the most Fantasy points to quarterbacks this season and they haven’t been able to stop anybody in years.
Kirk Cousins vs OAK ($7,600)
Cousins is another quarterback I have some problems with. I’m willing to give Cousins a pass, however, due to the fact it’s a new offense with two of his 1000 yard wide receivers in DeSean Jackson and Pierre Garcon absent. Cousins has yet to get in sync with Terrelle Pryor, Jamison Crowder or Jordan Reed. Just like Cam with the Saints, this is a great spot for Cousins and the offense to get going.
