DFS: Bargain Bin – Week 2

Figuring out which low priced players offer both value and upside separates the sharks from the chum in DFS. Everyone knows who the stars are, and paying up for those guys is necessary to have a solid core to your lineup. But every week, there are players at the lower rungs of salary pricing that can be great additions to your player pool. Identifying these diamonds in the rough will allow flexibility to get more studs in, as well as lower ownership. Here’s a quick rundown of players priced down relative to their position that you could consider rostering for the Sunday main slate on DraftKings and Fan Duel.


The pickings here are pretty slim:

Carr has a positive game script going against the Chiefs. Oakland looked better than expected against Denver last Monday night

Mariota is a volatile player, which makes him perfect for large field tournaments. He was efficient last week, and a healthy Delanie Walker does wonders for his passing production. There’s always rushing upside with him as well.

Running Back

RB can be tricky but there are options available this week:

If Joe Mixon sits, Bernard becomes a free square.

Breida should get a good amount of volume with Tevin Coleman out. However, use caution as Breida is known to be a bit fragile himself

Shady looked great in his Chiefs debut. He’s still splitting time with Williams, but is still a big play threat. Andy Reid will want to get him in the end zone sooner rather than later.

Jacobs got the volume owners were hoping for against the Broncos. He should be involved in the passing game a ton this week with a positive game script against the Chiefs.

Looked good with limited work against the Jets. The Giants present a soft matchup, and Singletary will get more touches as he gains the coaches trust.

Washington has limited options at RB against Dallas. Thompson is explosive when healthy, and should get plenty touches here in the passing game. A much better buy at DraftKings.

About Marshall Williams

I am excited to be writing for Fantasy Sharks once again this season. I love all things related to the NFL and daily fantasy sports. Let's all have a profitable year together.
