This is, instead, a look at the player pool I’ll be fishing.
:: covered in-depth in the Angles Pod (it’s highly recommended that you listen to the breakdown of the roster in order to see the thinking behind it, and in order to understand what we’re talking about when we look at a “bottom-up build”
:: these are my “Tier 1” plays: the plays I feel confident leaning into across different types of builds; players who have a high ceiling and a low likelihood of price-considered failure
:: these are games, offenses, situations, or scenarios I’ll be looking to build around across my rosters
:: these are players who don’t fit into the categories above — either Upside pieces who don’t have the floor to be Blue Chips (and are not being focused on within my game-focused builds) or players who may not have a strong shot at ceiling, but are worth keeping in mind from a “role” perspective

Full breakdown (of what this is, and what the thinking is behind these players) can (and should) be found in the Angles Pod (above).

Only seven teams have attempted fewer passes than the Packers this year.
No player in the NFL has averaged more targets per game than Davante Adams this year.
You think he might be the focal point of this offense through the air?
The Bengals rank 11th in pass defense DVOA, but outside of a relatively tough Week 1 test against the Vikings, they have faced the Bears, Steelers, and Jags. Adam Thielen went 9-92-2 in this matchup in Week 1. Chase Claypool went 9-96-0 with Diontae Johnson on the sidelines. This is a winnable matchup for the engine of the Packers offense, giving him the most confident floor/ceiling range of the higher-priced players on the Week 5 slate.
Note: This is not a Blue Chip, but is attached to a Blue Chip in Davante. If this were not attached to Davante, it would be in the Build-Around section.
Tacked onto the Davante Adams play is a lot of interest on my end in the Bengals passing attack. If Mixon plays, this interest will be slightly muted; but especially if Mixon misses, this is a spot where we should see one of the Bengals’ “big three” wideouts post an excellent price-considered score, while another should post a solid score. Burrow plus two of his pass catchers is in play for me this week (with Adams on the other side), and even if I don’t end up with Burrow, I’ll have Chase // Boyd // Tee circling my builds as combo plays opposite Davante.
