SUNDAY MORNING UPDATE:
Each Sunday Morning, check back here to see if there are any updates to the primary cash game lineup.
There are two key pieces of news here this week.
First, Emmanuel Sanders is expected to play this week. That limits the usage for Deebo Samuel, Ross Dwelley or any other receivers in San Francisco. It also somewhat limits Tevin Coleman. Coleman is still a great play, but he will likely get 2-3 touches less than he otherwise would have.
Bonus: If you're into prop betting, Ezekiel Elliott is -300 to score a touchdown today. Essentially that means Vegas thinks that there is a 75% chance he scores a touchdown this week.

Review of Last Week-
By request, we are going to do a small section of a review of last week. Last week, the primary lineup just missed out on cashing in 50/50’s. This was due to a couple of reasons, the first being that I didn’t play Lamar Jackson. The game went perfectly for a large majority of the game only for Jackson to rush for a 47-yard touchdown while the team was up 28-10. The other thing that hurt me, was Michael Thomas being tackled at the one-yard line and Christian McCaffrey falling about 2 inches short of the goal line at the end of the game. If any of those three things change, the lineup easily is above the 50/50 line. McCaffrey surprisingly was not above 50%, as the price likely scared a lot of people off of him.
The ultimate problem of last week was Christian Kirk being close to 45% owned. I get why, but the floor of Kirk was just too low and I chose D.J. Moore over him. Moore was fine, but we fell just short of being able to overcome Kirk’s elite performance.
