Below are some players worth targeting this week on DK and FD main contests. The goal with this article is to remove the bias from your decision when building your lineup. There is some information about that player, without giving away who the player is. You can reveal the players at the end of the article to see who they are and the specific prices for both DK and FD.
The first QB we will look at is under $7,000 on DK & under $9,000 on FD. This QB turned in a great week one (25+ point performance on both DK and FD) , and provides fantasy production both through the air and on the ground. He has a great matchup, likely to replicate his week one performance, with potential to give you 4-5x value on DK and upwards of 4x value on FD.
The second QB we will look at is under $6,000 on DK & under $8,000 on FD. His week one performance was less than stellar, but managed to salvage the week in terms of fantasy. The opposing defense was shredded week one through the air to an inferior offense. This QB could see upwards of a 30 point fantasy performance. I really like this play for a few reasons: great matchup, should be low-owned and it allows you to pay up for other players.
The first RB we will look at is under $6,500 on DK & under $7,000 on FD. This RB has high expectations this season. He has a favorable matchup this week, with the opposing team giving up 136 yards on the ground during week one, and surrendering 53 yards receiving to RBs. He should be relatively low-owned this week.
The second RB we will look at is under $6,000 on both DK & FD. He had a great week one against a tough run defense. He had 15+ rush attempts, 3+ targets, and had a multi touchdown game. He has a good week two matchup. Just watch as this guy could be a trendy plug & play guy this week.
The first WR/TE we will look at is under $7,500 on both DK & FD. He turned in a nice week one stat line: going for over 100 yards, 5+ receptions, and 2 TDs. This week offers an even more favorable matchup. Additionally, he would be a stack with one of the QBs in this article.
The second WR/TE we will look at is under $6,500 on DK & under $7,500 on FD. His week one did not live up to the expectations, only catching 5 of 9 targets; his salary has been adjusted down slightly from that performance. He is another great situation to turn in a great fantasy line. The opposing defense gave up 200+ through the air and 3 TDs. This player has the potential to go off on any given game.
The third WR/TE we will look at is under $4,500 on DK & under $5,000 on FD. He drew a tough week one matchup, but still gave up a serviceable fantasy stat line. He was targeted 7 times, catching four of those. He has a favorable week two matchup, with the opposing defense giving up 5 catches for 50+ yards during week one. At his price, it’s hard to pass up the potential here, and allowing yourself to pay up at other positions.
