DFS: DraftKings & FanDuel – Week 16 Value Plays

Happy Week 16! As we approach the end of 2020 we have a 10 game slate on Sunday.

For the main slate, Tyreek Hill is the only player at $9,000. However, I’m looking to spend up for Nick Chubb and Austin Ekeler this week and go cheaper at other positions.

Quarterback

Teddy Bridgewater (DK: $5,300/$353 DPP — FD: $7,100/$473 DPP)

This game might go overlooked but I like it as a sneaky stack with Ron Rivera coaching against his former team. Christian McCaffrey is doubtful again this week which will put the offense in Bridgewater’s hands again. In the last five games Bridgewater has scored at least 20 fantasy points in three of those games. The downside is that he has just thrown for one touchdown in his last three games. Washington has played teams tougher this season allowing 15.23 DraftKings points to the position over the last four games. This game is expected to be close with Washington favored by 1 point.

Drew Lock Denver Broncos (DK: $5,000/$385 DPP — FD: $6,800/$523 DPP)

This game has a total of 48.5 and I think it could go over that. I like Austin Ekeler as the bring-back option in Denver stacks. Lock has been inconsistent this season but he has 30 point upside in this game. Last time he faced the Chargers he put up 20.82 DraftKings points in a 1 point win. The Chargers are allowing 21.25 DraftKings points per game over the last four games.

Running Back

Le’Veon Bell Kansas City Chiefs (DK: $5,800/$414 DPP — FD: $6,400/$492 DPP)

Clyde Edwards-Helaire is expected to miss the remaining games of the season with a chance at returning during the playoffs. That leaves Bell as the lead back in this offense. It is probably Bell’s last chance to shine, so he needs to take advantage of this opportunity. Last week bell rushed the ball 15 times and scored on the ground. He faces the Falcons in a game the Chiefs are favored by 10.5 points at home. The Falcons are allowing 22.3 DraftKings points per game to opposing running backs.

Darrell Henderson Los Angeles Rams (DK: $4,500/$450 DPP — FD: $5,600/$622 DPP)

Cam Akers will miss this game with a high ankle sprain leaving Henderson and Malcolm Brown to split the carries. I prefer Henderson as he has more carries on the season. I think people will over react to the last matchup against the Seahawks where Brown scored twice and roster him instead. This play comes with risk as the Ram offense is always unpredictable but if you are spending up at receiver, you will need to find value at the running back position. The Seahawks are allowing 22.7 DraftKings points to the position over the last four games.
