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! DraftKings prices are annotated by the DK next to the price. So with that being said, let’s get it started!
My picks went 13-8 last week. That makes me 113-100 on the season! Hope my picks worked for you last week!
MID TIER QB (6K)
K.Cousins vs Cin ($6,300DK) – With Reed possibly back for this game, Cousins regains his top Red Zone guy and should benefit against the Bengals.
R.Fitzgerald vs Cle ($6,200DK) – The Browns have allowed the highest TD-per-attempt in the league and with a TD machine like BMarshall to throw to, Fitz should have a pretty good day.
BOTTOM TIER QB(5K-4K)
D.Carr vs T.B ($5,900DK) – Carr being this cheap, you gotta jump on it. The Bucs allow more than 12 yards per completion this season.
J.Winston vs Oak ($5,700DK) – This game has the potential of being a shootout and Winston was hot last week hooking up with Evans all game, same can be expected this week.
J.McCown vs NYJ ($5,200DK) – The Jets rank 26th against the pass this season. I could see McCown throwing from behind in this game and end up with some nice numbers.
MID TIER RB (6K-5K)
L.Blount vs Buff ($5,300DK) – Blount has scored a TD in all but one game this season. Brady should keep the box clear for Blount to possibly score twice on Sunday.
BOTTOM TIER RB (4K-3K)
F.Gore vs K.C ($4,700DK) – The Chiefs allow 109 rushing yards per game so far this season. For someone who sees about 70% of his teams’ carries, Gore should have an opportunity for a big game on Saunday.
L.Murray vs T.B ($4,500DK) – T.B allows the 8th most FF points to RBs this season. Now that he is back, he will get the lion share of the carries and should produce on Sunday.
C.Thompson vs Cin ($3,700DK) – Thompson got 7 catches last week and should continue putting up similar numbers as long as Matt Jones is hurt. Matt Jones will not play Sunday.
D.Booker vs S.D ($3,700DK) – With C.J out for the year, enjoy Booker at this price this week, because next week he will shoot up by a large amount.
A.Blue vs Det ($3,000DK) – Strictly if Miller misses the game, Blue should be in line for a full workload and nice numbers against a bad run D.
R.Kelley vs Cin ($3,000DK) – With Matt Jones out, Kelley will get the early down work and goal line carries, which should be enough to hit value real easily.
MIDDLE TIER WR (6K-5K)
M.Crabtree vs KC ($6,700DK) – With Crab’s high usage in the Red-Zone, he is always a threat to put up huge numbers, am also pretty sure the Raiders wanna bounce back from an ugly game last week.
T.Pryor vs NYJ ($6,100DK) – Having McCown back should help Pryor get more consistent looks and he will do so against a bad Jets secondary.
T.Montgomery vs Atl ($5,300DK) – The Falcons have allowed the 2nd most receptions to backfields this season. TyMont has been playing out of the backfield. Use him for this price in all of your lineups.
G.Tate vs Hou ($5,100DK) – In the last two weeks, Tate has 22 targets, 14 catches, 258 yards, and a touchdown. He is getting back into the thick of things in a big way.
BOTTOM TIER WR (4K-3K)
D.Adams vs Atl ($4,900DK) – Will he burn you? Will he ball out like he did last week? At this price id take a few shots at him in Daily this week.
BOTTOM TIER TE (4k-3K)
Jack Doyle vs KC ($3,500DK) – With D.Allen out again this week Doyle will look to build on a great game he had last week as he will be on the field all game.
G.Barnidge vs NYJ ($3,300DK) – McCown being back will help Barnidge a lot has he tries to make it 3 game productive games in a row.
Good luck with your picks this week. If I helped you win, you’re welcome! If I helped you lose, you just didn’t use the right combination of guys I gave you. HAHAHAHAHA #GetAtMe
