DFS VALUE PLAYS: Week 14

TE_Rob_Gronkowski_NEP_2

It is still strange to see Gronkowski priced in the $5K range for a fifth consecutive week but outside of Week 1 and Week 12 we haven’t seen much of the old Gronkowski. In fact it is crazy that a team such as the 9-3 New England Patriots doesn’t have any standout fantasy players we consider for daily DFS on a weekly basis.

DFS VALUE PLAYS: Week 11

RB_Mark_Ingram_NOS_1

Philadelphia overall this season has played the run well but over the last few weeks it has been gashed by Saquon Barkley and Ezekiel Elliott. The Philadelphia pass defense has not played well, which will open up running lanes for New Orleans.

DFS VALUE PLAYS: Week 10

QB Andrew Luck IND

Andrew Luck has thrown for 22 or more fantasy points in his last five games suggesting that his price is too cheap for his production. The matchup is tough but the Jaguars can be thrown on as just last game, the Eagles threw for 286 yards and three scores.

DFS VALUE PLAYS: Week 9

WR Courtland Sutton WR

The trade of Demaryius Thomas to the Texans means Courtland Sutton is ready to take over his role. Thomas was averaging 7 targets a game and Sutton already saw 4.6 targets a game and will split the vacated targets with Emmanuel Sanders. The match-up this week is average but the value should be there. Expect high ownership.

DFS VALUE PLAYS: Week 8

RB Adrian Peterson WAS

The New York Giants have decided to start the rebuilding process by trading away Eli Apple and Damon Harris, who was a Top-5 run-stopper. They also will be without Alec Ogleltree at linebacker. That’s three missing pieces for a run defense that already ranks 20th in run defense entering this game, allowing 186 rushing yards per game with six touchdowns yielded this season.

DFS VALUE PLAYS: Week 7

QB_Cam_Newton_CAR_1

Cam Newton hasn’t been below 18 DraftKings points all season and has a ceiling of at least 35 points. The match-up against Philadelphia is a good one as Carolina has allowed 290 passing yards per game with eight passing touchdowns given up this season. The Philadelphia secondary has under-performed this season and Newton has a good opportunity to take advantage.

DFS VALUE PLAYS: Week 6

RB Chris Carson SEA

Last week Chris Carson ran the ball 19 times and caught one pass. The previous week he carried the ball 32 times and caught two passes. If he’s going to get that kind of work at this price point, he has to be considered a core value play.

DFS VALUES: Week 5

RB_T.J_Yeldon_JAC_1

Chalk week was back as 16 of the top 20 owned players produced this week. There were a few disappointments by position such as Drew Brees at QB, Michael Thomas or Odell Beckham Jr. at WR and Tevin Coleman at ...

DFS VALUE PLAYS: Week 4

TE_Benjamin_Watson_NOS_1

Watson gets overlooked this week but people forget that tight ends against the Giants is still a thing. Last week the Giants allowed 115 receiving yards to the Texans tight ends. Watson could be a sneaky touchdown this week and a contrarian stack option with Drew Brees.

DFS VALUE PLAYS: Week 3

TE_Charles_Clay_BUF_2

We haven’t seen much from Clay this season as he has received just 5 targets on the season. However game theory leads me to believe that this week could be a good week to target Charles Clay.

DFS VALUE PLAYS: Week 2

QB_Ryan_Tannehill_MIA_1

Despite week one’s win, the Jets defense struggled last season and lack of a pass rush which will allow Tannehill to make some throws. DeVante Parker remains limited so stick to a stack with Kenny Stills.

DFS VALUE PLAYS: Week 1

RB Alfred Morris SF

Welcome back to football! I’m so excited that we have real meaningful football to watch this week. After many weeks of Best Ball drafts and redraft leagues, we can direct our focus to daily fantasy football. We will focus on ...

DFS: $DPP Analysis – Week 16

RB_Jonathan_Stewart_CAR_1

Stewart is not the running back he once was but I trust him more than Frank Gore. Stewart exploded for 31 DK points two weeks ago so the upside is there because the Panthers will look to keep Cam Newton healthy over the next two weeks.

DFS: $DPP Analysis – Week 15

RB Alex Collins BAL

Alex Collins is one of my favorite plays this week. Last week he rushed for 120 yards and a touchdown. Although the Browns over the season haven't given up a ton of points per game at just 22 DK points per game. They have been gashed over the last 6 allowing 27.4 DK points per game.

DFS: $DPP Analysis – Week 14

RB_Frank_Gore_IND_1

Gore is another forgotten fantasy player that is back on the radar this week. He gets a dream match-up against the Bills who allow 28.7 DK points per game and multiple rushing touchdowns in 4 of their last 5 games.

DFS: $DPP Analysis – Week 13

RB Jamaal Williams GBP

The Packers put Ty Montgomery on injured reserve who will need wrist surgery. Aaron Jones is still listed as questionable and will be a game-time decision. Jamaal Williams should get the bulk of the carries again regardless if Jones plays or not.

DFS: $DPP Analysis – Week 12

QB_Kirk_Cousins_WAS_1

Cousins is not a cheap value quarterback as he comes in to this Thursday night game as the 3rd highest priced quarterback on DraftKings and 4th on Fanduel. However, he rates as the highest $DPP play on the board. He has four games in his last six with 27 or more DK points.

DFS: $DPP Analysis – Week 11

WR_Jamison_Crowder_WAS_1

Jamison Crowder will be popular this week after seeing 11 targets last game with double digit targets in two of his last three weeks. Terrell Pryor is a non-factor at the moment so the passing is going through the tight ends and Crowder.

DFS: $DPP Analysis – Week 8

RB_Bilal_Powell_NYJ_2

Bilal Powell should be healthy and can do damage to the Falcons defense that is allowing 27 DK points per game to the position. The Falcons last week gave up 76 rushing yards to Dion Lewis while allowing James White to catch 5 passes including one for a touchdown.

DFS: $DPP Analysis – Week 7

TE_Jack_Doyle_IND_1

After missing Week 5 with a concussion, Doyle led the Colt receivers with 7 receptions on 11 targets for 50 yards and a score. Andrew Luck will be out again this week so he'll continue to be Jacoby Brissett's safety valve at a decent price and fairly low ownership.

DFS: $DPP ANALYSIS – Week 6

RB_Mark_Ingram_NOS_1

While Alvin Kamara has caught more passes than Ingram, Ingram has double the rushing attempts. I keep rolling the dice for a big Ingram game. This week he faces the Lions who allow 21.4 DK/20.9 FD points to the position.

DFS: $DPP Analysis – Week 3

WR_DeAndre_Hopkins_HOU_1

Although Hopkins is averaging 64 receiving yards per game this season he is seeing a boat load of targets. In Week 1 he saw 16 targets and last week 13 targets. That is almost half of all the passes DeShone Kizer has attempted. As long as the rookie is throwing Hopkins’ way as much as possible, the potential for a big game is there.

DFS: $DPP Analysis – Week 1

RB_Devonta_Freeman_ATL_1

Welcome to week 1! I’m excited football is back and we get to finally set lineups. With the season kicking off we also get to jump right into Daily Fantasy where both DraftKings and Fanduel are shelling out big prizes. ...

Week 16: The Championship Week

QB_Teddy_Bridgewater_MIN_1

It’s championship week for most leagues while the remainder of the leagues will conclude next week. The hits keep coming as we see more players lost to injuries. This week heading into the championship games we are without Odell Beckham ...
