Packers Aaron Jones’ Increasing Workload Makes Him a Sneaky Play

Packers Aaron Jones’ Increasing Workload Makes Him a Sneaky Play
Brandon Murchison October 3, 2018 9:59AM EDT

Sneaky plays for Week Five                                                         

QB

Blake Bortles @ Kansas City Chiefs

Bortles is currently a fringe QB1 ranking 13th through the first quarter of the season in points at the position (82). In Week Five, he draws a very nice matchup against a bottom-five defense in points allowed to the position in the Chiefs. With Leonard Fournette again sidelined with injury, the offense will have to rely on Bortles and the passing attack to match points with Mahomes and the Chiefs. The Jaguars could keep this close as their stellar defense could stall the red-hot Chiefs’ offense, but in all likelihood, Bortles may have to play catchup. He currently sports one of the worst average depth of target percentages in the league (6.6), something that will have to change in this game if the Jaguars can get the road win. Look for Bortles to give you around 285 yards through the air with at least two scores. Not eye-popping numbers by any stretch, but good enough to get the job done as a streaming option for Week Five. He will potentially be a low-owned option in DFS based solely on his name. Many are turned away by Bortles and the mainly run-based attack.

RB

Aaron Jones @ Detroit Lions

Jones is two games into his season after returning from suspension and has already looked like the better back in the rotation in Green Bay. He is already gaining on Jamaal Williams in yardage (162 to 107), gains more yards per carry (6.3 to 3.4) and has forced eight missed tackles to Williams’ zero. They have essentially split snaps down the middle the last two weeks and in a matchup against the Lions, the recipe is there for a big day from Jones if he can secure more touches. I can see the Packers playing from ahead in this game, meaning more opportunities late in the game for Jones. Don’t be shocked if you see his first 100-yard game of the season with one touchdown on the day. Worthy of a start in the Flex spot in season-long leagues. Also, he could be that dart throw play in DFS that works to your favor for a big payday.

WR

Paul Richardson @ New Orleans Saints

Call this one a hunch, but in a matchup against the league’s worst defense in points allowed to the position, Paul Richardson could give you his best day of the 2018 season. Potentially matched up against Ken Crawley, I could see Alex Smith looking Richardson’s way on a couple of long balls down the field. He’s first on the team in receptions (nine) and yards (131), numbers that he could come close to doubling in this matchup. I could see a six catch, 110-yard day from him in Week Five. Add in a touchdown and you have yourself a very sneaky yet productive play as a low-end WR3/Flex in this game. I doubt you will see his name in many DFS lineups either, giving you an advantage as you build your roster.

TE

Ricky Seals-Jones @ San Francisco 49ers

A tight end could be the best friend of a rookie quarterback. For Josh Rosen, it would behoove him to utilize Seals-Jones in a matchup against a 49ers defense that is one of the worst in points allowed to the position (11.43 PPG). They have allowed four touchdowns to the position in four games this season and I see that trend continuing in this matchup. Although you likely won’t see a big day in terms of yardage, I expect for Seals-Jones to get you into the end zone, which always helps when streaming at the position. He could potentially be an overlooked option in DFS based solely on the offense. Take advantage of the matchup, especially at such a cheap price.

DEF

Tennessee Titans @ Buffalo Bills

The Titans continue to get disrespected each and every week (by myself included), but they continue to play sound defense and beat quality opponents. Well, it’s time to take notice as they travel to play a Bills offense that is, for lack of a better word, bad. I expect for the Titans to bring pressure all day to rattle Josh Allen and force a few mistakes. You should get a few sacks here and a couple of turnovers, while also keeping the scoring to a minimum. If they are available on your waiver wire, go get them. In DFS, this unit could be a very chalky play that you don’t want to miss on.
