So who do you have in your DraftKings contest this week? Here are some of my top picks to help get your contest sorted.
Ryan Tannehill? Wade…have you lost it? Yes, but that’s not the point. You want to find someone who has value against and easier D, and that’s what old Tannehill has. It’s no secret that the Jags have been playing defensive poo lately, so this should be an easier match-up. Tannehill will hit Derrick Henry in the backfield a lot, which means he could 100 yards just from him. Tannehill hasn’t been playing that badly as of late, and should be of good value to balance out the rest of your squad with a $5300 price tag.
Kareem Hunt has been a shell of his former self this season, barely making an impact this season. But that will change this week for a few reasons. They are playing the Dolphins. That’s only one reason, but there are a lot of factors involved in this. The Dolphins will struggle to stop a Browns team that is still smarting from the Myles Garrett incident last week. The Browns are going to want to establish the run to punish the fish, and Hunt looks to play the big role here. The Dolphins will struggle against a power 2 of RBs bang into their line all day. Hunt should factor in at least 1 TD and at $5300, is a steal.
The Raiders & the Jets face off in NY, and the stakes are high for the Jets. They have been able to muster a few wins, and might be able to shake off the mono-rail like performance earlier this season. The Raiders are horrible when it comes to stopping the deep ball, and this is where the Jets should be able to find some momentum. Anderson has got some wheels on him, which means he should be able to find separation to get into the open. At $4800 he is a good deal, just for the amount of yards he will plow through as well. I like him to at least get 1 TD here as the Jets will look to exploit the weak secondary of the Raiders.
Michael Thomas is straight up shattering records this season. He is chucking up the yards and TDs as he continues to have a stellar performance. No one seems to be able to stop him. Given the anemic defense of the Carolina Panthers, he should have another smoking game at home. Once he gets those legs rolling, and uses his height advantage, mere mortals are helpless. He should have a few TDs in this one.
Here are some other dudes you might want to target.
Mike Evans-WR-TB-$7300-Evans looks to have a great game against a Falcons team that can pass rush, but can’t defend deep. Jameis is still putting up big yards, and he should be getting the bulk of the looks.
Joe Mixon-RB-CIN-$5900-The Bengals can’t do anything right, but they can run. In fact, Mixon does most of the work for cats. He should gash some yards in the slot from Driskell as they look to avoid that pass rush.
