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 15 Misses for those of y’all keeping score at home. That makes me 77-62 on the season! Hope my picks worked for you last week, let’s keep it going!
QBs FOR THURSDAY’S GAME
Neither QB is worth playing.
RBs FOR THURSDAY’S GAME
C.Hyde vs Ari ($4,800DK) – The Cards have allowed 130 rushing per game so far this year. Hyde could be involved enough to hit that number.
WRs FOR THURSDAY’S GAME
J.Brown vs S.F ($4,400DK) – Brown finally coming around was targeted 16 times last week. Always a deep threat he has been getting more involved mid distance catches as well.
J.Kerley vs Ari ($3,700DK) – If he plays, Kerley could get a lot of dump offs type passes against this defense. In PPR, we wouldn’t mind that at all.
TEs FOR THURSDAY’S GAME
None of the TE’s are worth playing.
D/ST FOR THURSDAY’S GAME
None of the D/ST’s are worth using.
Good luck with your picks Thursday night.
