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 $8,000 on FD. This QB is averaging just under 20 points on DK and FD this year. In week four, this QB got off to a great start but fizzled towards the end of the game. With a week of rest, and the soft defensive matchup this week, look for 20+ points this week, with ease. Meaning you are looking at 3x value with upwards of 4x value.
The second QB we will look at is under $6,000 on DK & under $8,000 on FD. This QB is averaging over 25 points per week over the last four weeks. This play makes a lot more sense in DK, given the huge price difference when compared to FD. He should see 5x value in DK, while we are looking at 3x or 4x value in FD.
The first RB we will look at is under $6,000 on both DK & FD. This RBs touches have increased each week, including in the pass game. The matchup is fantastic, with the opposing defense allowing north of 170 yards per game to RBs. And at this price, why not plug him in. A nice floor of 10-12 points, and go get yourself some studs in your lineup.
The second RB we will look at is under $5,000 on DK & under $6,000 on FD. This RB is off to a rocky start this year. But his usage has increased over the first few weeks of the season. The matchup is fantastic this week. The price tag is the selling point here. You should see around 10 fantasy points, and if this guy goes for a TD; thats just an added bonus.
The first WR/TE we will look at is under $6,500 on both DK & under $7,500 on FD. This WR gets the targets, with upwards of 10 in each game he has played so far. This will be a stack with one of the QBs in this article. The matchup is great, with the opposing defense ranking in the bottom half of the league in passing.
The second WR/TE we will look at is under $6,000 on both DK & under $7,000 on FD. He has only played two weeks so far this year, as he has been dealing with injury. I don’t think this player is on many people’s radar just yet, but that won’t last long. Neither will this price tag. Once again, another great matchup for this WR. This is fantastic value.
The third WR/TE we will look at is under $6,000 on both DK & FD. This guy went OFF in week 5. He had his coming out party. And now everyone will have this guy on his radar. But the circumstances this week cannot be passed up. He should see an increased usage (if thats even possible) with one of the other WRs out. And let’s not forget they are going against a defense is horrendous against the pass.
1st QB – Matthew Stafford ($6,300 DK & FD $7,300)
2nd QB – Ryan Fitzpatrick ($5,900 DK & FD $7,400)
1st RB – Antonio Gibson ($5,500 DK & FD $5,800)
2nd RB – Adrian Peterson ($4,700 DK & FD $5,500)
1st WR/TE -Kenny Golladay ($6,200 DK & FD $7,200)
2nd WR/TE – AJ Brown ($5,600 DK & FD $6,500)
3rd WR/TE – Chase Claypool ($5,200 DK & FD $5,500).
