Travis Kelce $7,000
While the Chiefs have had a relatively low scoring contest in their previous two games they are still ranked the third best overall offense and fourth best passing attack in the AFC. Going into this weeks contest Kelce is tied for ninth in the league with 62 receptions and tenth in the league in receiving yards 777. Superstition is a big part of football and Kelce is sporting the triple lucky seven’s this week.
The three-game losing streak for the Chiefs ends this week as they thump the Jets at home. Kelce will be a very integral part of that game plan. He is averaging 16.5 fantasy points per game which puts him in the upper echelon of tight ends in today’s NFL. This week Kelce will go off and end up with over 150 yards receiving and at least one touchdown.
Jared Cook 5,400
LAst week the Raiders got a win over the Broncos but lost both Michael Crabtree and Amari Cooper for this week. With both of their start receivers out Cook has the chance to shine and lead the team in targets and receptions.
On the season he has 42 receptions for 536 yards but only a single touchdown. When he hits his third 100-yard day this week, it would mark the first time in his career recording three 100-yard performances in one season. This could be the best season of Cooks career statistically speaking and he will show up this week.
The Giants are the worst team in the league at giving up points to opposing tight ends. They give up an average of 258.5 yards against through the air and 24.3 points per game to opposing offenses. Even though the Raiders will be undermanned this week they should still score points and Cook will get the biggest boon from their absence. Watch Cook to go over 100 yards and catch a pair of touchdowns.
