DFS Advice for FanDuel and DraftKings for the 2017 in Week 5

The Daily Dos & Don'ts - Week 5 DFS Advice (2017)

Posted by d-Rx on 10/06/17

Stagg Party's Week 5 DFS



Pillar: WR, Dez Bryant  – FanDuel - $7,800 / DraftKings - $6,500

Dez Bryant has gotten through his tough slate of cornerbacks and now comes out on the rosy side. Taking on the Packers, where the team he caught it against, is as close to a revenge game as he gets at home. Dak has been playing great, but has missed Dez a number of times but going against the Packers has been a cure all for Dez. In three career regular season games Dez has averaged 11 targets 7 catches for 82.5 yards and has two touchdowns. The last time these two teams met in the playoffs, Dez compiled 9 catches on 12 targets for 132 yards and two touchdowns. Dez has yet to have a 100-yard game and has 18 in his career 101 regular season games, it is almost like he is due. The Packers have allowed each of A.J, Green and Julio Jones over 100 yards this season, and I will put some deniro on the line that Dez is next.

 

Sleepers: WR, Martavis Bryant – FanDuel - $5,700 / DraftKings - $5,000

Martavis Bryant has just been a hair off so far to start the season. He has missed two giant touchdown catches by just a foot, those are things that will end up correcting. He has also been involved in the redzone, as Bryant has been targeted in the end zone five times this season and has yet to convert a single one after being a dominant redzone performer previously in his career. His recent performance and the strength of the Jaguars corners have really pushed his price and his big play ability gives him a chance for a big score. While many are going to be scared off by the Jags, I am simply not one as the quarterbacks they have played this season have been a bag of caca.

 

Low Cost Dart Throw: TE, Austin Seferian-Jenkins – FanDuel - $5,500 / DraftKings - $3,500

ASJ has gotten back involved in the offense after returning from his suspension and saw ten targets over the last two weeks. He has also been efficient with his targets catching nine of ten for 77 yards. Now in his third game back, ASJ gets a dreamy matchup against the Cleveland Browns who are allowing the second most fantasy points to opposing tight ends and have struggled defending the position for the last few seasons. In DraftKings scoring, three tight ends have scored 17.1 fantasy points or more against the Browns and for his current leisurely price, I am all in. The Browns have allowed guys named Jesse James and Tyler Kroft to put up two touchdown games, is Seferian-Jenkins next?

  

I’d Avoid: WR, A.J. Green – FanDuel - $8,300 / DraftKings - $8,200

Green has gotten back on track over the last two weeks hauling in fifteen passes on twenty targets for 174 yards and two touchdowns. This week, he faces the Buffalo Bills who have gotten off to a great start defensively. The Bills ability to get pressure this season has been great, and that has been the thorn in Dalton’s side to begin the season. Although Green should still have a nice game, he just seems to lack the upside of the other top receiving options because of the pace of play each of these teams have been working at. The Bengals defense has been improved as well, leaving me to believe that this will be a slugfest, which typically doesn’t help win tournaments. The Bills have allowed just 1 passing touchdown so far and have not let a receiver surpass the 100-yard mark, allowing me to fade Green this week.

 

 


ØC's Week 5 DFS


 

Pillar: QB, Aaron Rodgers – DraftKings $8,100 / FanDuel $9,500

Aaron Rodgers will play on the road against the Dallas Cowboys this Sunday. In DraftKings scoring, Rodgers has yet to post less than 20.5 FF points in any game. It’s this kind of consistency that can win you a contest, especially with Aaron as his ceiling could easily be 30-35 FF points. Dallas is also the 27th worst defense against fantasy quarterbacks and both Devante Adams and Ty Montgomery are on track to at least be available for the Packer offense this weekend. Flashback to the divisional playoff game between these two teams when Rodgers put up 355 passing yards and two touchdowns; I can easily see this happening again.

 

Sleeper: RB, Duke Johnson Jr. – DraftKings $4,900 / FanDuel $6,000

Duke has been on a roll these last two games, averaging 21.7 FF points in Draft Kings scoring. Johnson does 90% of his damage through the air, totaling 20 receptions and 207 yards with two total touchdowns, proving he should remain the #1 weapon in the Cleveland offense. Isaiah Crowell has been disappointing and rookie QB DeShone Kizer isn’t making any eye-popping throws, often dumping it down to Johnson out of the backfield. Duke always has an opportunity to break 20 FF points and at such a discount, he is a no-brainer against a faulty Jets defense.

 

Dart Throw: TE, Hunter Henry – DraftKings $3,800 / FanDuel $5,200

You wouldn’t normally consider Henry a “dart throw” per say, but the pure inconsistency of his fantasy performances is puzzling. Every other game thus far has resulted in a fantasy goose egg and with his first touchdown catch of the season last weekend, we should be in line for another big fat zero. “NOT SO FAST” as Lee Corso would say, the New York Giants are the worst defense against tight ends, allowing a floor of 12.7 FF points. I am not worried about the road game or Antonio Gates stealing targets. The season is already over for the Chargers, so why not try to develop the young guns?

 

I'd Avoid: RB, LeSean McCoy – DraftKings $7,800 / FanDuel $8,200

I have loved McCoy since he came into the league, but I despise how he’s being used this season. Rushing attempts of 22, 12, 14, and 20 are wildly inconsistent and nowhere near what he deserves as the best offensive talent for Buffalo. LeSean also has zero total touchdowns over the opening stretch of the season and Vulture Extraordinaire, Mike Tolbert, still lurks near the goal line. Now the Bills travel into a harsh Cincinnati environment against the 5th toughest rush defense in the league. McCoy is too rich for my blood this week.

 

Stack

QB, Aaron Rodgers

WR, Jordy Nelson

 

 

 

d-Rx's Week 5 DFS


Pillar: RB, Le'Veon Bell - FanDuel $9,500 / DraftKings $9,500

Point home team favorite which spells positive running game script, Vegas expects the Steelers to score 27 points. Jacksonville is so good at the pass, that teams funnel the run against their defense.


Sleeper: WR, Jaron Brown - FanDuel $4,500 / DraftKings $4,500

There are only 8 WRs that have more air yards than Jaron Brown, which he leads the team in air yards (up there with Diggs, Martavis, and has more than AJ Green). Only 3 teams are allowing more fantasy points per game than the Eagles, so I like what this guy is doing and what he can do in this specific matchup.

 

Dart Throw: WR, Aldrick Robinson - FanDuel $3,100 / DraftKings  $4,600

Marquise Goodwin has had 4 concussions in the last 14 months and is probably going to sit this one out. If he is indeed out, Aldrick will matchup against the Colts' Vontae Davis who according to PFF is the 3rd worst cornerback in the NFL. 


I'd Avoid: QB, Ben Roethlisberger - FanDuel $7,900 / DraftKings $6,400

The Jaguars are stout against the pass (the best so far actually), I know Big Ben is solid at home, but I think they run the hell out of Le'Veon Bell in this game.
