What a great week for bargain plays last week as everyone we suggested was solid outside of D.K. Metcalf.
Now it’s time to put together back-to-back profitable weeks and continue to add to that DraftKings account balance, which you hope never requires another deposit…
Let’s keep the ball rolling into Week 4!
Daniel Jones, Quarterback, New York Giants ($5,300)
One thing that is nice about DraftKings is they like to be the first to get next week’s numbers out to the public very quickly, so here is a steal you need to get in at least one of your lineups. Coming in as just the 17th-most expensive QB this week, you can’t go wrong with Daniel Jones at this price. What we saw in the preseason carried over into the regular season as Jones put up 39.2 DK points against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers in his NFL debut last week. This week he gets the Washington Redskins at home, and you saw what Mitch Trubisky just did against them.
Nick Chubb, Running Back, Cleveland Browns ($6,400)
17,18,23. These are the numbers of carries Nick Chubb has received since Week 1. He’s on the field for well over 90% of plays and volume is key when you’re a running back. Chubb will be going into Baltimore who just allowed Kansas City’s third-string running back Darrel Williams over 100 yards of total offense on 13 touches. Chubb is going to break out eventually, and that could very well happen this week.
Marlon Mack, Running Back, Indianapolis Colts ($6,100)
This guy is up to 61 carries through three weeks this season. Now he gets the Oakland Raiders at home this week, which should be an easy win for him after coming into Week 3 as a game-time decision. Despite putting up solid stats this season, his price hasn’t risen nearly as much as I expected. Mack should put up over 100 rushing yards for the first time this season and return amazing value behind his stout offensive line.
Robert Woods, Wide Receiver, Los Angeles Rams ($6,100)
Last year he was the top wide receiver on this team. This year he has fallen behind Cooper Kupp and Brandin Cooks in regards to looks from Jared Goff. He still gets a good amount of targets, but unfortunately it hasn’t turned into solid fantasy points. This should be a good week to get Robert Woods into a lineup as the Rams are at home against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers. After receiving eight targets last week, look for a similar amount this week while maybe even adding in a touchdown or two as Tampa Bay will be doing whatever they can just to keep up.
Larry Fitzgerald, Wide Receiver, Arizona Cardinals ($5,600)
After what some may call a down week, Larry Fitzgerald has still been ol’ reliable with 18 catches for 253 yards and two touchdowns through three games this season. He’s just laughing in everyone’s face as he fits perfectly in this high-octane offense at the young age of 36. Let’s see if Seattle can slow him down here, but I for one don’t see that happening.
Terry McLaurin, Wide Receiver, Washington Redskins ($4,500)
Scary Terry, McLovin, whatever it is you want to call Terry McLaurin, I am all in on this guy. All this rookie does is score touchdowns. Every game, mind it only being three, but still, you get the point. Going up against their divisional rival New York Giants this week, they get to play against a defense that is complete trash as we just saw Mike Evans have his get-right game, lighting them up for three scores and almost 200 yards. I am calling the fourth touchdown of the season for McLaurin this week, and wouldn’t be surprised if #5 also appeared.
Will Dissly, Tight End, Seattle Seahawks ($3,600)
Put Will Dissly’s Week-1 production behind you, because like most offenses, they’re trying to figure out what works when it comes to a real game. Over the last two weeks, Dissly has only gone up $500 and has averaged 20 DK points and now gets the worst team against tight ends in the Arizona Cardinals. Just check out last week when I recommended Greg Olsen. Who did he play? The Arizona Cardinals. I rest my case
