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 is averaging 30+ points in both DK & FD, and provides fantasy production both through the air and on the ground. His salary has been adjusted up in both but is still way under priced. He has a great matchup, likely to continue this output, 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. He is averaging just above 23 points in both DK & FD through two weeks. The opposing defense for this upcoming week has not been able to defend the pass through the first two weeks. This QB could see upwards of a 30 point fantasy performance. The only worry with this play is if they team gets up early, and abandon the pass game to run the clock.
The first RB we will look at is under $7,500 on DK & under $7,000 on FD. This RB trending in the right direction. An increase in workload happened during week two, and continue to see this in week three. You can’t pass up this matchup. The opposing defense inferior, and look for this team to be up early and lean not he run game to close this one out. He should be close to 3x value in both DK & FD this week.
The second RB we will look at is under $6,000 on both DK & FD. This RB does not have the starting job, but has seen double digit fantasy outputs through each of the first two weeks in both DK & FD. The opposing defense this week has given up 120+ yards each of the first two weeks. This is a favorable matchup, and at the price, I really like this play, which allows you to pay up at the spots in your lineup.
The first WR/TE we will look at is under $7,000 on both DK & FD. He has been fantastic through the first two weeks. He has scored in each of the first two weeks, been targeted 5+ times in both games and near 100 receiving yards in each. This week offers an even more favorable matchup, with the opposing defense surrendering 250+ passing yards in each of the first two weeks. This game should be a shootout, which will increase fantasy production.
The second WR/TE we will look at is under $6,000 on DK & under $7,000 on FD. This WR is one of only two players to have double digit targets in each of the first two weeks. He is slightly more value in DK than FD based on the scoring difference (1 pt per reception in DK vs 0.5 pt per reception in FD). This player offers great value at the price.
The third WR/TE we will look at is under $4,000 on DK & under $5,000 on FD. This is a nice player to plug in your lineup and allow you to pay up at other positions. In week two, he saw nearly double digit targets and will continue to have this expanded role in week three. it is worth noting the opposing defense has been torched by TE so far this season. By Sunday, this will be a chalky play, but go ahead and eat it here to get those studs in your lineup.
1st QB – Kyler Murray ($6,800 DK & FD $8,400)
2nd QB – Ryan Tannehill ($5,900 DK & FD $7,400)
