Tyrod Taylor

Buffalo Bills

Ready to Roll


In Tampa's two road games this season, both QBs (Case Keenum & Carson Palmer) had top-4 fantasy weeks. Tyrod Taylor gets TB in BUF Sunday coming off his bye week. His schedule looks pretty sweet for the rest of the season as well. He'll have to figure out who he's going to throw to, but he'll get rushing yards to secure his floor.

Amari Cooper

Oakland Raiders

Get Right Spot?


Kansas City has the most air yards against this year, and the 6th most receiving yards against. Both KC CB’s have given up 3 TDs. The most vulnerable depth to attack KC is 15 yards. Over their careers, Cooper has been better at 15 yard depths and up than Crabtree.
Eventually NFL players break out of their slumps, because they are good, even Cooper. Tonight could be the night, there’s nothing like the spotlight to get your superstar going.

Adrian Peterson

New Orleans Saints

Well, that was fast...


After just one game, Adrian Peterson has 36.51% of the Arizona Cardinals running back rush yards this season.

Fantasy Goo: He's an RB2 for now, but if he can stay healthy... watch out.

Buffalo Bills

The Bills are under center more in 2017


Last season the Buffalo Bills ran shotgun on 81% of their plays, 74% of their runs came from the shotgun. In 2017 however, Buffalo is averaging just 44% plays from shotgun. Just 25% of their runs have come from shotgun. They are averaging 5.18 yards per rush in shotgun and 2.76 from under center.

Fantasy Goo: McCoy is currently 25th in fantasy points for RBs coming off his bye week with only one 100-yard game and zero touchdowns. Might be time to change it up a little bit HC Sean McDermott and OC Rick Dennison.

Derrick Henry

Tennessee Titans

Titans in the Backfield


Mike Mularkey said the run game split on MNF (near 50-50 for DeMarco Murray-Derrick Henry) was a good model. He also added that Henry is the go-to RB in the 4th quarter.

Fantasy Goo: I believe this is the target, but we will see this vary from week-to-week. If Murray is healthy or fired-up, like he may be after his coaches’ comments, he will be the guy to start. As the season whines down so will Murray, buy Henry for your playoff run, he’s more than just a handcuff.

Marlon Mack

Indianapolis Colts

Turbin Done for Season


Colts HC Chuck Pagano expects RB Robert Turbin to miss rest of season with arm injury he suffered Monday night. Turbin has averaged 6+ touches per game over the past four weeks.

Fantasy Goo: This might seem insignificant, but I expect Marlon Mack will pick-up all of those touches. An extra 6 touches from Mack could mean a major boost in production. Grab him if you can, he’ll be explosive when Luck comes back.

Ezekiel Elliott

Dallas Cowboys

Two More Weeks of Zeke


Ezekiel Elliott has been granted another temporary restraining order by the Southern District of New York, and will be allowed to play Week 7. The restraining order, is for 14 days. So it appears Elliott will also be good for Week 8.

Fantasy Goo: Hold off on all the Morris/McFadden love for a couple more weeks. If you have them you’re probably holding if you’re a contender, but I’d sell high to the Zeke owner if you can. This is gearing up for Zeke to be out during the fantasy playoffs.

Kenny Golladay

Detroit Lions

Golladay. Celebrate


If we picked up Golladay
Take some time to celebrate
Just one day out of life
It would be, it would be so nice
Everybody spread the word
We’re gonna have a celebration

Every season there is that player that propels a team to the fantasy promise land. Kenny Golladay possesses that high upside potential down the stretch that can be invaluable. Golladay last played in week 3 before suffering a hamstring injury, and Matthew Stafford has missed his 213lb 6’4 receiver. After throwing for 7TDs in the first 3 weeks; Stafford has only thrown for 2TDs before exploding in week 6 against the Saints with 3 tosses. This was a result of the game being out of hand and being forced to throw 52 times. Golden Tate was injured in this game and word is he will be out a few weeks. The Lions are on a bye in week 7, which gives Tate a free week to rest, but more importantly gives Golladay a free week to get ready to explode on the scene once again at home in week 8 against the Steelers. Tate and Marvin Jones Jr are what they are at this point. Golladay gives Stafford the kind of big threat target that he has lacked since the Decepticon leader himself MEGATRON retired. You can’t teach height and talent, and that is a gunslingers favorite type of weapon to use.

George Kittle

San Francisco 49ers

Waiver Wire Target


Kittle had a very average game this week catching four passes for 46 yards, but there could be some good news that came out of this game for him. C.J. Beathard has been named the starter for the rest of the season, and that was Kittle’s college quarterback, so you know there is immediate chemistry there that could pay nice dividends in the coming weeks

Alex Collins

Baltimore Ravens

Waiver Wire Target


Collins got the majority of the carries for the Ravens this week with 15 of them for 74 yards. He looks like he will be in a time share with Javorious Allen, but this was the first time we saw him take the majority of the carries, making him more interesting going forward.

Austin Hooper

Atlanta Falcons

Waiver Wire Target


Without Sanu the Falcons leaned a lot more on Hooper, who finished with seven receptions for 48 yards. He is becoming a bigger part of the Falcons offense, and he has big play potential that makes him a worthy add.

Ted Ginn Jr

New Orleans Saints

Waiver Wire Target


Ginn is the deep threat receiver for Drew Brees and they connected on a 20-yard score this week. Ginn finished with four receptions for 66 yards including that score. The Saints offense is lacking the big play and Ginn can provide the pop in the passing game.

Samaje Perine

Washington Redskins

Waiver Wire Target


Perine finally found the endzone this week, but his final stat line was not that pretty with nine carries for just 23 yards and three receptions for 24 yards and a touchdown. Samaje has lacked the big play, which has limited him in fantasy.

D'Onta Foreman

Houston Texans

Waiver Wire Target


Foreman got his customary 12 carries and this week gained 59 yards, but was once again held without a touchdown. He is getting a consistent workload, but he is not busting the big play to make him a worthy fantasy start.

Mike Wallace

Baltimore Ravens

Waiver Wire Target


After a stellar week Wallace came back down to earth, catching three passes for 30 yards. Wallace is a boom or bust.

Kendall Wright

Chicago Bears

Waiver Wire Target


Wright was basically invisible this game with two catches for 36 yards, and did not make a catch until the third quarter. There is too much inconsistency in the Bears passing offense.

DFS Advice for FanDuel and DraftKings for the 2017 in Week 3

The Daily Dos & Don'ts - Week 3 DFS Advice (2017)

Posted by d-Rx on 09/23/17

Stagg Party's Week 3 DFS

 

 

Pillar: RB Le’Veon Bell – FanDuel $8,700 / DraftKings $8,800

Le’Veon Bell is the guy I am centering my lineups around so far this week. When the Steelers go on the road they typically go with a more conservative game plan featured around Bell. Pass attempts decrease and while there is a small difference in the rush attempts number, rushing yardage increases by nearly 20 yards per game. Their rushing touchdowns also increase giving Bell a chance for a rushing score or two. Another factor is the Bears anemic offense giving Pittsburgh a chance to play keep away with Bell in the third and fourth quarters in this game. Last week the Bears allowed 31 rushing attempts to the Bucs for 116 yards, and they do not have a back like Bell to go to. I am of the belief that people will be off Bell in favor of his passing game counterpart in Antonio Brown as the Bears are much weaker in the secondary. Bell is now back to getting a massive workload, and his price has decreased over the last few weeks making now the time to strike.

 

Sleepers: TE Zach Ertz – FanDuel $6,500 / DraftKings $5,000

Zach Ertz is by no means a sleeper, but hey I named these fucking categories and they really don’t mean much. Zach Ertz is a mid-priced pillar for me this week taking on the Giants. New York possesses a different kind of funnel defense, as when Janoris Jenkins is in the lineup they shut down opposing slot receivers and the opponents number one, giving Ertz the prime matchup against the Giants slow footed linebackers. The Giants have allowed double digit fantasy points to each tight end one they have faced this season in Jason Witten and Eric Ebron. Ertz has seen a strong target share in each of his games this season and finished with over 90 yards in each of his matchups. Ertz is a lock to be in most if not all of my lineups this weekend.

 

Low Cost Dart Throw: WR DeSean Jackson– FanDuel $6,400 / Draftkings $4,600

DeSean got off to a slow start to his Tampa Bay career, but this week he will look to bounce back against the stout Minnesota Vikings defense. Lucky for DeSean, he will avoid Xavier Rhodes and match up against second and third corners who have shown a tendency to make mistakes. DeSean’s deep speed could play a major factor in this game as the long play has been a problem for the Vikings from time to time. Martavis Bryant and Tommylee Lewis have each had big catches against the Vikings through the first two weeks and each ended the game with a 25+ yard per catch average, and we all know DeSean has the most 50+ yard touchdown plays since he has entered the NFL. DeSean is a tourney only play, but if you want to win he is a guy who can help you.  

  

I’d Avoid: QB Tom Brady – FanDuel $9,400 / Draftkings $7,700

This is especially true on FanDuel where Tom Brady is the most expensive player on the Sunday slate. I rarely want the most expensive QB, but especially when he is more expensive than stalwarts like Julio, Brown, and Bell. Brady absolutely demolished the Saints last week, but the Texans are a different animal. Houston has allowed just one passing touchdown this season and is coming off a ten-day hiatus after playing on a Thursday night with lots of time to gameplan. BOB knows Bill well, and will mix between coverage and pressure to try and rattle Tom Brady whether successfully or not.  All in all, the matchup doesn’t matter here, it is all about allocation of resources and if you play Brady you can’t do the needed things to win your tourney. But if you want to hear about the matchup, just know that the Pats went with a heavy run game they last time they took on Houston and Brady completed under 50% of his passes for under 300 yards and had as many interceptions as he did touchdowns (2).

 

  

 

ØC's Week 3 DFS

  

Pillar: WR Michael Crabtree – DraftKings $7,400 / FanDuel $7,700

Crabtree is coming off a three-touchdown performance against the defunct NY Jets but will have a tougher test against the Washington Redskins on the road for Sunday Night Football. However, Crabby has been the model of consistency through the first two games. In total, he’s collected 12 of 13 targets for 163 yards and the aforementioned three touchdowns. Josh Norman, the Washington star cornerback, is still ailing from a shoulder injury last weekend and will spend most of his time matched-up with Amari Cooper. Stick with the hot hand and ride Cooper on primetime.

 

Sleeper: RB James White – DraftKings $5,400 / FanDuel $5,600

In a week where a lot of favored teams are on the road, the Patriots get to play at Gillette. The Houston Texans have a tough defense against the pass but can be very susceptible to fantasy running backs. White racked up eight receptions on eight targets for 85 yards last week and could see similar stat lines all year with Gillislee taking most of the rushing touches. As FanDuel and DraftKings have PPR scoring, White is the perfect “boring” player with a low price to put your lineup over the top.

 

Low Cost Dart Throw: TE Jack Doyle – DraftKings $3,600 / FanDuel $5,300

Doyle was Jacoby Brissett’s favorite target in Week 2, collecting all eight targets for 79 yards against Arizona. The old adage of the tight end being a rookie/new quarterback’s security blanket still rings true in Indianapolis. This week the Colts square off against the Cleveland Browns who currently allows an average of 23.7 FF points to tight ends. Both Jesse James and Ben Watson teed off on the Browns secondary in the first two weeks of the season and the trend will continue for Doyle this Sunday.

 

I'd Avoid: QB Drew Brees – DraftKings $7,200 / FanDuel $8,400

Drew Brees can go off for 30 FF points at any given week, but I just don’t like the matchup on the road in Carolina against the toughest fantasy defense vs opposing passers. Granted the Panthers have only faced Brian Hoyer and Tyrod Tayler at the QB position, but even they couldn’t gain more than 193 yards through the air with a touchdown total of…zero. Brees will obviously earn more fantasy points than these two scrubs, but the upside to win your contest just inst there. I suggest the comparably priced Derek Carr or even Kirk Cousins at a further discount.

 

Stack

RB, James White – DraftKings $5,400 – FanDuel $5,600

RB, Mike Gillislee – DraftKings $5,700 – FanDuel $6,800

 

 

 

d-Rx's Week 3 DFS

 

Pillar: WR A.J. Green - FanDuel $7,500 / DraftKings $8,100

This is the game that A.J. Green gets going. The Packers are middle of the road this season on allowing DFS points, but they are giving up a majority of their yards to the wide receiver. Look for Bill Lazor to target the shit out of A.J. Green, Dalton will have the green light to force it to #18. I'm expecting a huge game for A.J. to break this offense out of it's funk.

 

Sleeper: RB Derrick Henry - FanDuel $6,400 / DraftKings $ 5,300

Even if DeMarco Murray plays, which I doubt will happen - Derrick Henry is going to be the lead back against the Seahawks this weekend. Tough defense, but through 2 games they are allowing over 5 yards per carry to opposing running backs - plus the Titans have a tough offensive line and Derrick Henry is a tank that no one wants to tackle. I think you will see the winds of change begin here (after building on last weeks big game) and start to see Henry getting more of the carries even when DeMarco is healthy, Henry is just too much of a weapon.

 

Low Cost Dart Throw: WR Rashard Higgins - FanDuel $5,100  / DraftKings $4,000

Opportunity knocks. Sadly for the Browns, he's their best wide receiver at the moment with Corey Coleman going on the IR and Kenny Britt looking like he forgot how to catch. The only person that can make plays right now through the air is Higgins. He caught 7 balls last week for almost 100 yards, and Kizer is going to need to throw it to somebody. The Colts are the perfect team for the Browns to play this week, as they are 29th at allowing WRs to score for both FanDuel and DraftKings allowing over 40 points to WRs in DraftKings. Value city for Higgins IMO.


I'd Avoid: RB Melvin Gordon - FanDuel $7,600 / DraftKings $7,600

Melvin Gordon will need to continue to do it through the air to be effective against the Chiefs. I can see the Cheifs getting out to an early lead and changing the game script from run to pass. Gordon has 67 yards on the ground on 27 carries thus far, but has been active in the passing game, take away Melvin's week 1 rushing TD against the Broncos, and he's had a shitty season so far.
