Tier 5 – Sexy Flexy’s

30. Demaryius Thomas (DEN) vs. IND – His health needs to be monitored with this nagging hip injury, but if he plays, DT has among the juiciest match-ups in the league against Indy’s depleted, dumpster fire secondary.

Update – Hate this… there’s a real chance he could be a decoy. The match-up might be too juicy to bench him, but if you’re deep at WR it’s likely the safest route. Let’s see how he’s looking during pregame workouts before a final assessment

31. Emmanuel  Sanders (DEN) vs. IND – Sanders has the potential to explode if Thomas is used as a decoy or inactive. This remains a situation to monitor, but Sanders should heavily be on your DFS radar.

32. Sammy Watkins (BUF) vs. NYJ – Injury Update: Here’s one of Week 2’s greatest dice rolls. Darrelle Revis is coming off an abysmal outing in which AJ Green planted a house on his island, and Watkins took him for quite the spin during Week 17 last year. Yet, as you’ve certainly heard, Watkins’ surgically repaired foot has been flaring lately. As of 5:00 pm, Sammy is expected to give it a go:

This does create very real 8 catch, 110 yard, 2 TD upside, and yet pure decoy or hampered stats exist. Ranked down in the 30s, I clearly don’t trust the ceiling, but I’m not entirely ignoring it either. If I am struggling for depth, Watkins has the “why not” type of feel.

33. Sterling Shepard (NYG) vs. NO
