NFL Week 7 $20,000 Monday Lineup Tips

It is week seven of the NFL season, which means that we are nearly half way. The season is taking shape and the cream is rising to the top. The highlight of this round is the replay of the Super Bowl with the Patriots hosting the Falcons in the prime time game. This week, we are going to look at the best players under $10,000. Everyone knows who the stars are by now, so let’s look for the value.


Here are some value players for the NFL $20,000+ Monday competition


Ryan Fitzpatrick ($8,000)

With Jameis Winston most likely going to miss this week, there is good value to be found in his replacement. Fitzpatrick has been a long time starter in the NFL, but has often found himself in poorly coached teams. Fitzpatrick played three quarters last week and threw for over 300 yards with 3 TDs. The downside is that he tends to throw a lot of interceptions, and it against a tough defense, but if you want to spend big in other areas, Fitzpatrick is a good value choice.

Running Back

Adrian Peterson ($9,350)

Peterson is back! After barely getting a look in at the Saints, Peterson was traded to the Cardinals and ran for 134 yards with 2 TDs against the Buccaneers. Peterson should be able to keep his momentum going against the Rams, and for $9,350, represents good value.

Running Back

Derrick Henry ($8,500)

The second year Running Back has exploded onto the scene this season and is set for more carries this week with regular Titans RB DeMarco Murray unlikely to play. Henry had a massive 75 yard TD run in his last match against the Colts and looked very impressive, shouldering the load for the majority of the second half. Henry should get plenty of carries against the Browns and represents good value, especially if DeMarco Murray is ruled out through injury.

Wide Receiver

Kendall Wright ($9,900)

Chicago finally have a QB! Trubisky looks promising and that only bodes well for the Bears Wide Receivers. Wright has been doing well with limited service and gets a good opportunity to score well against the Panthers who have an average pass defense. Wright just fits under the $10,000 threshold, but still represents good value.

Wide Receiver

Laquon Treadwell ($7,850)

Last year’s first round draft choice finally showed some promise catching three balls for 51 yards against the Packers. Treadwell missed the entirety of last season through injury and has slowly been introduced into the offense. Treadwell is on an upward spiral and if he can catch a TD, he will be great value for $7,850.

Wide Receiver

Justin Hardy ($7,950)

Hardy is a real smoky for this week’s match. His Falcons come up against the Patriots who have been abysmal on the defensive side of the ball this year. The Pats have been torched every week this season, but not by the opposition’s number one receivers. It has been the second and third string receivers that have been cutting up the Pats and that is where Hardy comes in. Hardy may only be on the field for a limited amount of time, but you can expect that he will catch a couple of big passes.

Tight End

Cameron Brate ($8,200)

Brate has been really consistent this season, catching TDs in each of his last four matches. The young Tight End has really come into his own this season and can build on his performances this week up against the Bills. Brate will most likely have backup QB Ryan Fitzpatrick throwing to him, but Fitzpatrick is an experienced QB so it should not slow Brate down too much.

Tight End

Austin Seferian-Jenkins ($9,500)

Seferian-Jenkins has really improved this season after battling a few off field issues last year. Seferian-Jenkins was arrested for a Dui and is now six months sober, which has really shown in his play this season. Seferian-Jenkins caught one TD last week and was robbed of another. You can expect Jets QB Josh McCown to continue to target his young Tight End and for the points to keep flowing for Seferian-Jenkins.


Minnesota Vikings ($7,800)

Fresh from breaking Aaron Rodgers’ collarbone, the Vikings defense is out for more blood when they take on the ravens. The Viking have not allowed over 160 passing yards in their last three matchups and you would expect that trend to continue against the Ravens whose offense is really struggling this season. Look for the Vikings to dominate this matchup and hopefully score big on the defensive side of the ball.
