Welcome to my weekly DFS value picks. This is where I offer a list of players that according to their price and usage in their systems (targets and overall touches), are the best options to bring you high production at the lowest price, making them great value picks. I will not be advising you to use the “Top Tier” players, as they are the players everybody knows about. If you haven’t played DFS before, you want to pair a couple of these great value players with the more expensive players that you know will come through with great numbers week in and week out, to give you the highest point total possible and ideally give you a chance to win some cash! Draft King prices are annotated by the DK next to the price and FanDuel are FD. So with that being said, let’s get it started!
So how did you do this past week? Hope you all won some cash and had some fun. Below are the players that I advised for you to use last week broken down into “Hits” and “Misses”. There were 22 Hits and 10 Misses for those of y’all keeping score at home.

I like to say that the Misses didn’t perform bad, they just ran out of time to perform better. With that being said, let’s move on to Week 10!
QBs FOR THURSDAY’S GAME
Ryan Fitzpatrick vs Buff ($5,100DK – $7,200FD) – Fitz may not be asked to do too much, but 250 PaY and 2TDs, at his price and bad.
RBs FOR THURSDAY’S GAME
Chris Ivory vs Buff ($5,900DK – $7,000FD) – Ivory hasn’t been getting it done yardage wise lately, but just like last week, a couple short goal-line TDs and your gamble pays off at the price.
Karlos Williams vs NYJ ($3,800DK – $6,100FD) – He doesn’t need a lot of carries to make it worth it and he has scored a TD in every game he has played except one.
WRs FOR THURSDAY’S GAME
Eric Decker vs Buff ($5,300DK – $6,800FD) – Life is good when you play opposite BMarshall. At least 6 catches in his last 3 games, he should be able to put up the stats the rest of the year!
TEs FOR THURSDAY’S GAME
None of the TEs are worth using.
D/ST FOR THURSDAY’S GAME
None of the D/STs are worth using.
TOP TIER QB
Eli Manning vs N.E ($6,700DK – $7,400FD) – Should be coming back against the Pats all game, so garbage points may start before halftime, and garbage points count!
Andy Dalton vs Hou ($6,500DK – $8,100FD) – Houston is bad against the pass and Dalton has too many weapons not too succeed, price is still super cheap too.
BOTTOM TIER QB
Derek Carr vs Min ($5,800DK – $7,500FD) – Averaging 300+ PaY and 3TDs his last three games. He did it against the Jets 2 weeks ago, he can do it against the Vikings.
Blake Bortles vs Bal ($5,600DK – $7,800FD) – The Ravens are bad against the pass and Bortles has been slinging it around all year. It could be a huge game foe Bortles.
Kirk Cousins vs N.O ($5,200DK – $6,500FD) – If the Ravens are bad against the pass, I don’t know what to say about the Saints. Near the bottom of the price list, could put up 300PaY and 2 TDs.
TOP TIER RB
Mark Ingram vs Wash ($6,400DK – $7,500FD) – The backfield is all his, road game so Brees may not be as hot, therefore Ingram may get more play.
Justin Forsett vs Jax ($6,000DK – $7,100FD) – The workload should be there as they lost SSmith as an offensive option.
MIDDLE TIER RB
Doug Martin vs Dal ($5,600DK – $6,700FD) – Dallas is 31st against the run, and Doug should continue to get ball to keep Jameis from making mistakes.
Lamar Miller vs Phi ($5,400DK – $7,200FD) – Lamar Miller is being used as the main part of the offense, for the price he should have a nice day.
James Starks vs Det ($4,900DK – $6,000FD) – Starks has just taken the RB1 job on one of the most dangerous offenses in the NFL, gotta take advantage of the price.
Darren McFadden vs T.B ($4,900DK – $7,000FD) – He has the backfield all to himself, has had 20+ carries in his last 3 games and is averaging 3 Ctchs per game during his last 3 games as well.
T.J Yeldon vs Bal ($4,800DK – $6,500FD) – The Jags offense is putting up points and Yeldon hasn’t had less than 10 carries in any game he has played in.
Duke Johnson vs Pit ($4,000DK – $5,900FD) – Does most of his damage catching the ball, 4-5 Cths and a possible TD is expected.
BOTTOM TIER RB
TOP TIER WR
Alshon Jeffrey vs Stl ($7,100DK – $7,600FD) – has 28 Cths in his last 3 games played. Beasting on everybody, for a lower price than the other big name receivers.
Mike Evans vs Dal ($6,800DK – $7,700FD) – Yes he had 6 drops last week, but he still caught 8 for 152ReY. Targets will stay high and so will the probability of a game like last every week.
Allen Robinson vs Bal ($6,700DK – $7,500FD) – Averaging 6Cths and 100ReY per game his last 3. Should continue versus a bad Ravens secondary.
Randal Cobb vs Det ($6,700DK – $7,700FD) – Aaron Rodgers is mad, if Aaron Rodgers is mad, I’ll take his primary receiver against the Lion’s bad secondary real quick!
Brandin Cooks vs Wash ($6,000DK – $7,200FD) – Cooks has come alive the last 3 weeks with 14Cths, 240ReY and 3TDs. I expect that to continue this week.
MIDDLE TIER WR
Michael Crabtree vs Min ($5,800DK – $6,400FD) – With everyone’s attention on ACooper, Crab has put up some amazing stats lately for about $2,000 less than ACooper. Use him to stack with Carr.
Allen Hurns vs Bal ($5,800DK – $7,300FD) – If healthy, he should see ample opportunity to put up some nice numbers against the Ravens.
James Jones vs Det ($5,300DK – $5,700FD) – Aaron Rodgers is mad, if Aaron Rodgers is mad, I’ll take his secondary receiver against the Lion’s bad secondary real quick! Especially at this price.
Willie Snead vs Wash ($4,900DK – $6,500FD) – 15Cths, 190ReY and 2TDs the last weeks, should continue as Brees continues to dish it out.
Pierre Garcon vs N.O ($4,800DK – $6,400FD) – The Saints secondary is really bad. 6Cths 70ReY and a TD is really possible and a real good return for the price.
Kamar Aiken vs Jax ($4,500DK – $5,400FD) – SSmith is out, meaning Aiken is back to being top WR for Flacco. I’ll take a WR1 at this price.
BOTTOM TIER WR
Dorial Green-Beckham vs Car ($3,200DK – $5,200FD) – DGB saw 10 targets last game and his involvement in the offense is growing every week. He is facing a tough Panther secondary, but for the price he could easily give you good value.
Jordan Reed vs N.O ($4,600DK – $5,800FD) – Did you see what DWalker did to the Saints last week? Yes one of the TDs was lucky but JReed won’t need luck to put up similar numbers.
Crockett Gilmore vs Jax ($2,800DK – $5,000FD) – Flacco doesn’t have a lot of receiving options, Gilmore may be behing Aiken in catches from here on out.
Carolina vs Ten ($3,300DK – $4,700FD) – Marioota was great last week, but against New Orleans. Caroina is way better than New Orleans.
Pittsburgh vs Cle ($3,000DK – $4,600FD) – May face an injured McCown or a healthy Manziel. Either one may mean a good matchup for Pittsburgh.
Dallas vs T.B ($2,500DK – $4,600FD) – Dallas defense isn’t great, but a chance for a pick 6 against Winston is always there.
