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”.
|J.Winston – 331PaY,1TD,1INT,22RuY|
|J.Starks – 25RuY,5Cths,46ReY,1TD|
|S.Shepard – 5Cths,50ReY,1TD|
|Z.Miller – 3Cths,61RuY,1TD|
|J.Witten – 5Cths, 37ReY|
|T.Hill – 4Cths,53ReY|
There were 11 Hits and 8 Misses for those of y’all keeping score at home. That makes me 157-135 on the season! Hope my picks worked for you last week!
QBs FOR THURSDAY’S GAME
Kirk Cousins vs Dal ($5,900) – Kirk has averaged 365 PaY and has 7 Passing TDs in his last 3 games. The Cowboys secondary is hurting as well.
S.Bradford vs Det ($5,100) – Cousins may not be putting up the stats ud like. But the Lions secondary is very bad and the Vikings running game may be worse, so Bradford may have to put it up a lil bit.
RBs FOR THURSDAY’S GAME
T.Riddick vs Min ($5,400) – Riddick has 8 catches and 70 ReY or more in 2 of his last 3 games. Could see a lot of targets with Tate and Jones possibly locked up on the outside.
F.Gore vs Pit ($5,200) – Pitt has allowed the 12th most yards per rush this season and are missing their top run stuffer. Gore is also doing damage with his catching ability.
R.Kelley vs Dal ($4,300) – Kells has averaged 107RuY per game in his 3 starts and has 4 TDs in those games. He is getting ALL the touches.
WRs FOR THURSDAY’S GAME
J.Crowder vs Dal ($5,800) – Crowder has scored a TD in his last 3 games and has over 100ReY in 2 of those 3 games. Cousins is one of the hottest QBs in the league and the Cowboys secondary is hurt.
A.Thielen vs Det ($4,000) – If Diggs misses the game, Thielen will see a lot of playing time and should see enough targets to do some damage.
- Garcon vs Dal (3,900) – Garcon has averaged 6 catches and almost 90 ReY per game his last 3.
TEs FOR THURSDAY’S GAME
E.Ebron vs Min ($4,000) – Ebron has 17 Catches in his last 3 games since coming back from an injury.
J.Witten vs Wash ($3,200) – Witten has 19 Catches in his last 3 games and is becoming a safety valve for Dak.
