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 13-5 last week. That makes me 126-105 on the season! Hope my picks worked for you last week!
MID TIER QB (6K)
P.Rivers vs Ten ($6,500DK) – I can picture this game being low-key high scoring. Rivers will get back on track this week.
BOTTOM TIER QB(5K-4K)
M.Mariota vs S.D ($5,900DK) – Marcus has scored at least 16 FFP in the last 4 weeks, including two 30 FFP games. Him being a threat to run on any play, gives the type of high ceiling you want for this price.
B.Bortles vs K.C ($5,800DK) – The “King If Garbage Time” did it for you last week if you played him. He’s going against a tough defense but the points in the 4th quarter, while coming back, have a chance to be there.
C.Kaepernick vs N.O ($5,600DK) – What makes him hit value isn’t his arm. Its his legs. Kaep has ran for 150 yards in 2 starts. Those numbers will be there against the Saints.
R.Tannehill vs NYJ ($5,600DK) – Going up against one of the worst secondaries in football, Tanny may see a lot of one on one coverage on his receivers while the Jets focus on Ajayi.
C.Kessler vs Dal ($5,000DK) – The Cowboys are a tough matchup on paper, but they will be missing 2 of their top DBs on Sunday. With Coleman back, Kessler could have himself a nice afternoon.
MID TIER RB (6K-5K)
D.Booker vs Oak ($6,400DK) – Booker will get all of the touches this weekend and has scored inconsecutive games. The Raiders will not be able to stop him from doing it 3 straight games.
C.Hyde vs N.O ($6,100DK) – If Hyde plays, he has a very juicy matchup against the 49ers. The Saints have allowed a league high 12 rushing TDs. A couple more should hit that tally up after Sunday.
BOTTOM TIER RB (4K-3K)
T.Riddick vs Min ($4,900DK) – Riddick has caught at least 4 balls every game this year. His role in this offense makes him a great play at this price.
T.West vs Pit ($4,700DK) – Pitt allows the 3rd most FFP to RBs this season. With the early and GL carries locked, West could rush for over 100 and run for a TD on Sunday.
C.West vs Jax ($4,400DK) – West will get all the work on Sunday with Ware gone. This is the perfect opportunity to use him with his price being so cheap.
T.Hightower vs S.F ($4,000DK) – If the Saints do indeed bench Ingra, you could have an RB that could get 15 touches againsta very bad rushing D for a very low price.
D.Sproles vs NYG ($3,900DK) – Sproles saw 20 touches last week and could see a similar workload this week. All he needs is a little room to bust one.
MIDDLE TIER WR (6K-5K)
T.Pryor vs Dal ($6,100DK) – Pryor is fully healthy, the Browns should be playing from behind and the Cowboys secondary is hurt. Play him!
D.Adams vs Ind ($5,900DK) – Adams has caught 25 balls the las 2 weeks combined…..enough said.
S.Diggs vs Det (5,900DK) – Diggs came back from the dead last week. Detroit has allowed a league high 19 passing TDs this season.
D.Moncrief vs G.B (5,800DK) – He has scored a TD in both full games he has played this season. With most of the defensive strategy geared towards T.Y, Moncrief should a good game.
T.Montgomery vs Ind ($5,800DK) – In his last 2 full games, Mont has touched the ball 32 times. With Cobb out, he should see a similar workload.
BOTTOM TIER WR (4K-3K)
C.Coleman vs Dal ($4,500DK) – His last game he had 5 Cths, 104 yards and 2 TDs. He could have a real nice day playing along side Pryor.
K.Stills vs NYJ ($3,900DK) – Against the struggling secondary of the Jets, Stills should see 3-4 long shots. I have a feeling he will connect on two of them.
T.Hill vs Jax ($3,400DK) – Hill has been more and more involved in the offense and should see enough work to put up some nice numbers.
BOTTOM TIER TE (4k-3K)
G.Barnidge vs Dal ($3,900DK) – The Cowboys have allowed the 9th most points to TEs this season. The Borwns should be playing from behind, giving Barnidge some opportunities.
A.Gates vs Ten (3,000DK) – Hunter Henry is out for this game and Gates has gotten 19 targets the last 2 weeks. Those two facts point at possibly a very nice stat line.
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
