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 $7,500 on DK & under $9,000 on FD. This QB has not produced lower than 23 points in DK or FD so far this season. He also provides fantasy production both through the air and on the ground. His down week last week (for his standards) has moved his salary back down, which is way under where it should be. The matchup this week is one that you should target, with potential to give you 5x value on DK and upwards of 4x value on FD with ease.
The second QB we will look at is under $6,000 on DK & under $8,000 on FD. The first three weeks were pedestrian for this QB, but he showed out Week 4; going for over 27 points in both DK & FD. He is going against a defense that ranks near the bottom of the league defending the pass. This move is more of a GPP play, with room to pay up at other spots in your lineup.
The first RB we will look at is under $6,500 on DK & under $7,500 on FD. This RB used to be at the top of the league, what seemed like a couple years ago. He has averaged just under 15 points per week in DK & FD. This opposing defense is dismal against the run this season. This is a nice value play.
The second RB we will look at is under $6,000 on DK & under $6,500 on FD. This RB has had a horrible start to the year. The matchup is good this week but he is so far down the list, I don’t think many will play him. A recent change in play callers, could prove to be what this player and offense needs to start clicking. This will be a low-owned guy, and could the difference for you in the final standings.
The first WR/TE we will look at is under $6,500 on both DK & FD. This WR has been average just under 20 points per week in both DK & FD. This will be a nice stack with one of the QBs in this article. I really love the value of this play, where this guy can go for 4x value easily.
The second WR/TE we will look at is under $6,000 on both DK &FD. His first two weeks, he averaged double digit targets. This followed a week three that saw him leave the game early. Fast forward to this week, and many may forget how involved he is with the offense. His price is still to cheap for his targets. Expect this one to be a low-owned player.
The third WR/TE we will look at is under $5,000 on DK & under $6,000 on FD. You read that right. Look how cheap this play could be and allow you to pay up for studs at other spots in your lineup. His floor should be at 10 fantasy points this week. The matchup is phenomenal, the opposing defense seemingly cannot stop anyone. I have confidence in this play, with a chance to get 3x value with ease.
1st QB – Kyler Murray ($7,200 DK & FD $8,300)
2nd QB – Teddy Bridgewater ($5,900 DK & FD $7,100)
