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!
M.Stafford vs Jax ($6,600DK) – Staff has thrown 11 TDs to 1INT in his last 5 games. He usually plays pretty well at home so use him for some nice stats on Sunday.
J.Winston vs K.C ($5,900DK) – Winston has thrown at least 2 TDs in his last 4 games. He gets Martin back but should still throw the ball enough to give you production.
K.Cousins vs G.B ($5,800DK) – Has scored at least 2TDs in his past 4 games and has thrown under 260 yards only once this season. This secondary is no better than it was last week when Mariota worked it and Cousins should do the same.
B.Bortles vs Det ($5,400DK) – Detroit has allowed the 2nd most FFP to QBs this season and like usual, Bortles should be playing from behind in this game.
C.Kaepernick vs N.E ($5,200DK) – He has rushed for 55 yards or more in 3 of his 4 starts this season. He will surely be playing from behind and could possibly throw for a couple scores in the 2nd half.
L.Miller vs Oak ($5,800DK) – If Miller is healthy he is going against a defense that allows the 5th most rushing yards per game. He would be in line for most of the touches and should produce.
D.Martin vs K.C ($5,400DK) – In his 1st game back, Martin had 17 touches. He could see that hike above 20 and for this price, that’s like stealing candy from a baby.
F.Gore vs Ten ($5,000DK) – In what could be a shootout, Gore should see most of the work out of the backfield. He has 4TDs in his last 3 games.
C.Prosise vs Phi ($4,200DK) – Rawls may be back, but I have a feeling the Hawks are gonna roll with Prosise this week and showing us what he could do with 7 catches last week, he could help make your lineup great this week.
J.Starks vs Was ($4,200DK) – Starks came back last week with the backfield all to himself. He should see more work this week if the Packers D can keep the game closer than last week.
K.Dixon vs Dal ($3,900DK) – With the Ravens possibly playing from behind this week, Dixon could see a lot of work as the passing down back. Last week he had 5 catches for 42 yards.
MIDDLE TIER WR (6K-5K)
D.Adams vs Wash ($6,700DK) – Adams, who has 35 catches the last 4 weeks, should see his fair share of targets in a game that should be high scoring.
D.Moncrief vs Ten ($6,100DK) – Moncrief has a TD in his last 2 weeks and in what should be a lil bit of a shootout against the Titans, he should see an uptick in targets.
J.Crowder vs G.B ($5,400DK) – Crowder has scored a TD in 3 of his last 4 weeks. With the Packers secondary struggling and Cousins being so hot right now, Crowder could have a nice Sunday evening for your squad.
BOTTOM TIER WR (4K-3K)
S.Shepard vs Chi ($4,700DK) – Manning is playing very well, OBJ is OBJ and Cruz is not healthy. What does that mean? Great opportunity for Shepard to perform at this very low price.
T.Hill vs T.B ($4,500DK) – With Maclin out last week, Hill caught 10 balls and could be up for a similar day on Sunday. Hopefully more yards than the 89 he got last week though.
Z.Miller vs NYG ($3,800DK) – With Jeffrey out, Miller could become Cutler’s new favorite target.
M.Bennett vs S.F ($3,700DK) – With Gronk out, Bennett could have back to back 100 yard games for the 1st time this season.
J.Witten vs Bal ($3,300DK) – In his last 2 games Witten has 14 catches for 193 yards. It feels like he is becoming Dak’s new favorite receiver and for this price you could do a lot worse.
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
