Each week, we will break down the DFS main slate for the weekend on both DraftKings and FanDuel. Let’s get right to it:
Lamar Jackson (DK-$8,000; FD-$8,400) – Even after a down week, Lamar comes with one of the highest floors at the position. He is great for cash builds.
Cam Newton (DK-$5,100; FD-$7,500) – For those who like value QBs, we want to highlight Newton. Cam has been taking first team reps and is expected to start for CAR this week. Amazing value on DraftKings
AJ Dillon (DK-$6,200: FD-$7,000) – Dillon, who is set to take over for an injured Aaron Jones, is one of the chalkiest plays on both sites. Minnesota’s defense is not a threat.
James Conner (DK-$6,100; FD-$7,200) – Conner was scripted out last week with ARI trailing most of the game. He was still on the field for 82% of offensive snaps, which should provide great opportunity and value for Conner vs SEA.
DaVante Adams (DK-$8,400; FD-$8,400) – We are sticking with Adams, who we picked last week. He is only one target behind the league lead and should see plenty of balls thrown his way without Aaron Jones soaking up touches.
Deebo Samuel (DK-$7,800; FD-$7,600) – Samuel has seen his targets drop since Kittle returned, so there is some risk here. Nonetheless, SF has a great matchup against a JAX defense that ranks among the bottom five in the league.
Hunter Renfrow (DK-$5,800; FD-$6,100) – For those looking for more value, we like Renfrow who has a seen more targets each week without Henry Ruggs. Renfrow should have a safe floor and will be a great cash play.
Darren Waller (DK-$6,100; FD-$6,700) – Renfrow is not the only person benefiting from the loss of Ruggs. Waller ranks second among TEs in targets (71) and remains an elite play for those looking to pay up at the position.
Dan Arnold (DK-$4,100; FD-$5,400) – If you like punting at TE, Arnold is still way too cheap on both sites. He has lead all TEs in targets over the last three weeks.
Cleveland Browns (DK-$3,100; FD-$5,000) – The Browns benefit from playing a Lions team that will likely be without their starting QB. Great value here, especially on DraftKings.
Washington Football Team (DK-$2,400; FD-$3,500) – We will likely be playing CLE, but if you need savings, look to WSH coming off a solid performance against NE.
