Welcome back everybody to Javimente’s DFS weekly 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 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!
Below are the players that I advised for you to use last week broken down into “Hits” and “Misses”. If a player score 3 times their value, they are a “Hit”. EX: $4,000 x 3 =12pts. This player would be considered a “Hit”. There were 18 Hits and 22 Misses for those of y’all keeping score at home.

Not a great week. A lot of the players were not as involved in there offenses as I had anticipated. Hopefully you used some of the guys that did hit and not the duds. Let’s shoot for better results this week!
*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
Ryan Fitzpatrick vs Buff ($$6,100DK) – After last week’s showing versus Cincy, I see Fitz bouncing back. With Matt Forte as an added weapon, Fitz should easily hit value versus Buffalo.
RBs FOR THURSDAY’S GAME
Matt Forte vs Buff ($6,600DK) – The Bills have allowed the 5th most yards per target to RBs since the beginning of last season. Forte doesn’t seem to be sharing the backfield. So he should see ample opportunities Thursday night.
WRs FOR THURSDAY’S GAME
E.Decker vs Buff ($6,500DK) – All Decker seem to do is catch TDs! Going against the not so great secondary of Buffalo and seeing less coverage due to BMarsh being on the other side, Decker should do work!
TEs FOR THURSDAY’S GAME
None of the TEs are worth using.
D/ST FOR THURSDAY’S GAME
D/ST Jets vs Buff ($3,300DK) – The Jets got 7 sacks in week one and their running defense stopped the Bengals most of the game. A hurt Sammy Watkins will also help the Jets case at being one of the best D/ST plays of the week.
