Tournament Plays

Eli Manning $14,350

I know it’s tough to trust Eli, but I think you have to this week. The Packers have been really bad against the pass, and especially on the right side. Beckham will line up there, and cause a huge problem for this defense. Manning is a lot cheaper, and will let you pay up at most spots. I think his floor is definitely lower than Rodgers, but he also has a pretty good chance of hitting that 30 mark. This looks like it will be high scoring, and I want to be all over the passing game.

Ty Montgomery 8,600

With everyone on Rodgers this week, and rightfully so, a lot will be looking at pairing a receiver with him. That will leave Ty Montgomery extremely low owned, and he definitely has the upside. You can expect him to get the carries, and he will also get targets through the air. Remember, he is a receiver that has switched to running back. He is cheap, and you certainly want exposure.
