Welcome to injury week, where teams struggle to fulfil their line-ups with a rag-tag collection of bodies who don’t break when they bend.
Numerous teams are struggling with injuries, so what does that mean for your DFS team?
One thing to keep in mind when putting together your DraftKings team is who are the Dolphins playing? And the Redskins. And the Falcons.
Imagine a security guard with narcolepsy, who just lets in everyone.
Those are those teams.
The more they score, the better you do.
With that in mind, let’s take a look at some value in the games.
Matt Stafford (QB)-$5200
Stafford and his pissed-off Lions are hosted the Vikings in the dome on Sunday.
While the Vikings are riding a short high after 2 wins, are they ready for a Lions team looking for justice?
The Vikings are good against the run, but Stafford will have time thanks to his O-line to open up some space.
TJ Hockenson will be a likely and deserved target.
Stafford is posting an average of 19.4FPPG, and after the late loss to the Packers in Lambeau, the Lions will be looking for heads….and touchdowns
Allen Lazard (WR)-$3000
The Packers WR corp is like a broken toy box. Should you bother trying to put them back together, or just use some new toys? That’s what they will be doing this week, with Adams, Allison and Valdes-Scantling all injured.
So who will Aaron Rodgers hit? The speedster that is Allen Lazard.
At $3000, he is great value for the price, and sure to justify his value.
Devin Singletary (RB)-$5400
Buffalo’s speedy rookie is back from injury, and looking for space against the lowly Dolphins.
The weather looks good in wing-town, which means a nice bright future for Singletary.
Look for Josh Allen to use him in many forms in this game.
A steal at $5400.
Latavius Murray (RB)-$5100
Alvin Kamara is out, so what will Teddy Bridgewater bring to the table to face the mighty Bears D? They’ll lean on veteran RB Latavius Murray to try to open up the lanes and take the pressure off from the D. While it looks to be a low scoring game-Murray will take the brunt of the work, and potentially the bulk of the points.
Other players to consider include:
- DJ Chark Jr (JAX)-$6000
- DK Metcalf (SEA)-$4800
- Matt Breida (SF)-$5300
- Jake Kumerow (GB)-$3600
- Phillip Rivers (LAC)-$5500
