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 10-12 last week. That makes me 136-117 on the season! Hope my picks worked for you last week!
BOTTOM TIER QB(5K-4K)
E.Manning vs Cin ($5,900DK) – Cincy has allowed at least 2 TD throws in all but 1 game this year. Eli will be trying to build from his best game this year in week 9.
A.Dalton vs NYG ($5,700DK) – The Giants are playing well this year, but with Eifert back in the mix, he should help Dalton’s numbers a lot.
M.Mariota vs G.B ($5,700DK) – QBs against the Packers have scored on average 15FFP per game this season. Mariota’s legs will allow him to blow past the value line.
C.Wentz vs Atl ($5,400DK) – In what should be a high scoring game Wentz should be able to throw the ball with confidence against this bad secondary missing their best DB.
J.Cutler vs T.B ($5,300DK) – This is a great matchup that Cutler should take advantage of, especially with a healthy Jeffrey at his disposal.
BOTTOM TIER RB (4K-3K)
J.Stewart vs K.C ($4,900DK) – K.C has allowed at least 90 yards and a TD to the backfield of the of the last 3 teams they have played. Stewart may have a great day.
L.Blount vs Sea ($4,900DK) – Blount has score a TD in every game since Brady has come back. The Seahawks are good against the run, but they won’t be able to keep extra players in the box against the Pats.
J.Hill vs NYG ($4,400DK) – Hill has scored a TD in 2 straight games. He seems to be tacking of the rock mre than in the past. He should see plenty of carries against the Giants.
C.Prosise vs N.E ($3,900DK) – Prosise may see an expanded role with Rawls out and Michael hurt. The Hawks may be playing from behind as well so he should see a good share of targets.
R.Kelley vs Min ($3,900DK) – Kelley will be the starter for Washington again and should see enough work to warrant you taking a shot a hoping for a TD.
MIDDLE TIER WR (6K-5K)
J.Matthews vs Atl ($5,900DK) – Matthews has gotten 24 targets the last 2 games catching 17 of em. In what should be a shootout, against a bad secondary, Matthews should give you great return.
T.Williams vs Mia ($5,700DK) – The Dolphins secondary is pretty bad and TBenjamin may miss the game. All that means Twill should see more burn.
BOTTOM TIER WR (4K-3K)
J.J Nelson vs S.F ($4,200DK) – Nelson is now the number 2 WR in Arizona. Coming oof of the bye, I expect the Cardinals’ offense to be fresh and have Nelson put up some numbers.
S.Coates vs Dal ($4,000DK) – Coates should see more work with Wheaton and Heyward-Bay being out as the Steelers try to get more WRs going not named Antonio Brown.
T.Hill vs K.C ($3,800DK) – With Maclin out, the Chiefs may try to figure out different ways to get the ball in Hill’s hands. The Panthers are no longer scary in the secondary.
BOTTOM TIER TE (4k-3K)
D.Walker vs G.B ($4,600DK) – Mariota is hot and this should be a high scoring game. Walker is the #1 receiving target in Tennessee and will put up the numbers to prove that.
A.Hooper vs Phi ($3,100DK) – Hooper has seen an expanded role in the last 2 weeks and with Tamme out again he should continue to see some targets.
L.Kendricks vs NYJ ($3,000DK) – Kendricks has come out of nowhere and caught 14 passes the last 2 weeks. Keep rolling him out there and save that cash at the TE position.
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
