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!
E.Manning vs Cle ($6,500DK) – Manning has averaged 3 passing TDs per game his last 3 games. The Browns have one of the worst defenses in the NFL. With this play, you are just hoping the Browns can score too, so Manning will have to keep throwing.
D.Carr vs Car ($6,100DK) – You can’t run against the Panthers, but you can throw against them. Not counting the Denver game, Carr has 400 PaY and 7TDs in his last 2 games.
C.Kaepernick vs Mia ($5,700DK) – Kaep’s running ability will always have him over or very close to value. He has rushed for over 100 yards in his last 3 weeks combined.
B.Bortles vs Buff ($5,600DK) – Mr. Garbage Time! The Bills are tough, but Blake will more than likely be playing from behind and should see plenty of opportunities to have a nice stat line.
L.Miller vs S.D ($5,800DK) – Only 1 of 8 players in the league getting 21 touches a game, Miller’s price screams for you to roster in all of your teams.
T.Rawls vs T.B ($5,700DK) – Rawls will get all of the touches now that his competition has been cut or injured. Again, with this price, he has to be rostered.
R.Jennings vs Cle ($5,600DK) – His touches have gone up the last 3 weeks and should stay around 20 against the Browns.
T.Hightower vs L.A ($5,400DK) – If Ingram is out, Hightower is in line for a huge workload in a game where the Saitns should be up by a lot and may run the ball.
J.Starks vs Phi ($4,400DK) – Starks may not see a lot of carries in this offense, but he is the starter and Rodgers loves dumping it down to his RBs.
C.Ivory vs Buff ($4,200DK) – Ivory has been getting the majority of the carries lately. He had 6 catches last week and if Yeldon misses the game, Ivory should see the same amount of catches this week.
J.Hill vs Bal ($3,900DK) – BMore is very good against the run this season. But the sheer volume of touches Hill will get due to Gio being out, makes him a very intriguing play.
MIDDLE TIER WR (6K-5K)
R.Matthews vs Chi ($5,800DK) – Matthews has been on a tear the last 3 weeks with 18 catches, 248 ReY and 3 TDs. He should have a real good game against a bad Bears secondary.
T.Pryor vs NYG ($5,600DK) – With the Browns sure to be playing from behind TP should be able to come up with a nice stat line.
J.Matthews vs G.B ($5,000DK) – JMatt has at least 10 targets in 4 straight weeks and should see a healthy number of targets Monday night versus a bad Packers secondary.
BOTTOM TIER WR (4K-3K)
D.Parker vs S.F ($4,700DK) – S.F has allowed the second most FF points to WRs this season and Parker has been playing to his potential the last 2 weeks.
T.Boyd vs Bal ($4,000DK) – With AJ Green out, Boyd will see more playing time and plenty of more targets.
D.Walker vs Chi ($4,900DK) – In his last 3 games Walker has 18 catches, 200 yards receiving and 2 TDs. He will continue to be a top target for Mariota.
Z.Ertz vs G.B ($3,700DK) – Ertz has come alive the last 3 weeks and should continue his great play this week.
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
