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. Hopefully this will remove any bias you have towards players and think about matchups, stats, and ownership when building your lineups.
The first QB we will look at is under $7,500 on DK & under $8,500 on FD. This QB is at a higher price than usually found in this article. This QB was on fire coming into last week, and had one of the worst QB performances of the week. I think that will drive his ownership down this week, even though the opposing defense is atrocious. When building your lineup, you can count on this guy to get you 25+ fantasy points.
The second QB we will look at is under $6,500 on DK & under $8,000 on FD. Talk about trending in the right direction. This QB has only one game where he as scored under 20 fantasy points. ONE. And he still has a low price tag. Couple that with a fantastic matchup this week against a very soft pass defense. Locking this guy in your lineup allows you to pay up for some studs.
The first RB we will look at is under $7,000 on both DK & FD. Following a very down week last week, and buried down the list on salaries; this RB will be low owned. Prior to week 6, He had found the end zone in three straight games. Look for him to get back on track this week, against a weaker rush defense.
The second RB we will look at is under $6,000 on DK & under $6,500 on FD. There is no doubt there is some risk involved with this play. More of a GPP play. Given the price, I don’t mind plugging this player in. He has had back to back weeks of single digit fantasy point production. The flow of those two games played a huge role in abandoning the run. The matchup this week is phenomenal, and well worth the plug in your lineup, especially if he scores a TD (double digit fantasy points).
The first WR/TE we will look at is under $6,500 on both DK & FD. This WR has solidified himself as this team’s WR1. He has at least 5 targets in each game this season, but only two TDs so far this season. The opposing defense gave up 4 TDs their last time out. This should be an under the radar play.
The second WR/TE we will look at is under $6,000 on DK & under $7,500 on FD. If there is one lock in this article, this is it. The matchup is fantastic. He has double digit targets in half the games so far this season. Since the QB play is unstable on this team, this WR will likely be low owned. Load up on this guy, he is going to have a monster week for his price tag.
The third WR/TE we will look at is under $6,000 on both DK & FD. The price tag on this one doesn’t make sense, it is way too low. He has four straight weeks of double digit fantasy points. Targets of 9, 7, 8, & 8 over the last four games. He is getting involved in the offense. And this week, he is going against a defense who ranks near the bottom of the league in pass defense. Plug this one in, and pay up for a stud or two.
