Welcome back everybody to Javimente’s Weekly DFS 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. A player hitting his value would mean that player scored 3 times their price, for example, $4,000 x 3 =12pts. 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. So with that being said, let’s get it started!
*I will be changing it up this year. I will put out my Thursday night game Value Picks Wednesday or Thursday afternoons. My Sunday and Monday nights game’s Value Picks will be released Saturday afternoon.
QBs FOR THURSDAY’S GAME
Cam Newton vs Den ($7,700DK) – Number 1 rated QB goes against the Number 1 rated defense. With his running ability, Newton should be able to hit value Thursday night.
RBs FOR THURSDAY’S GAME
C.J Anderson vs Car ($5,900DK) – With an inexperienced QB and not much competition at the moment for touches, C.J should see the bulk of the load. Panthers allowed the second most receptions to RBs last season.
WRs FOR THURSDAY’S GAME
Emmanuel Sanders vs Car ($5,700DK) – Going against young secondary, Sanders should be able to work them for a high amount of catches Thursday night.
Devin Funchess vs Den ($4,800DK) – With the attention being on Cam’s running ability, Olsen and Kelvin Benjamin, Devin could quietly have a nice game to include a touchdown.
TEs FOR THURSDAY’S GAME
Virgil Green vs Car ($2,900DK) – With an unexperienced QB, Green may get enough dump offs to blow past his value!
D/ST FOR THURSDAY’S GAME
Neither Defense is a good play Thursday night.
