FantasyDraft – DFS Quarterback Pick
Tom Brady – vs CAR ($15,000)
Brady has not missed a beat this season, as he’s averaging 364 yards and 2.7 touchdowns per game through his first three starts. He has played two solid defenses, along with a weak New Orleans secondary. He gets a matchup against the Panthers, who look good on paper, but struggled against the Saints, who were the only high-powered offense they have played. The Patriots have an implied team total of 29.3 points, which is the highest on the slate. Brady is not going to come cheap, but he can be used in all leagues.
FantasyDraft – DFS Running Back Picks
Ezekiel Elliott – vs LAR ($15,400)
Elliott has “struggled” early this season, but he is still averaging 85.3 total yards per game. He also found the offense last week, as well. On top of his rushing abilities, Elliott has been more involved in the passing game this season. This weekend, Elliott gets a matchup against the Rams, who are allowing 139 rushing yards and 4.3 yards per attempt this season. The Cowboys are -6 point favorites, and they will be running the ball out in the second half. Elliott is a great option in all leagues.
Bilal Powell – vs JAX ($9,100)
Powell has looked awful to start the season, but he is in a great position this week. He totaled a season-high 15 carries last week after Matt Forte was injured. Powell is expected to be the workhorse back this weekend, and he should see plenty of opportunities on the ground and through the air. He gets a matchup against the Jaguars, who are allowing 135.3 yards and 4.8 yards per attempt on the ground this season. Powell is extremely cheap, and he’s a high upside option.
FantasyDraft – DFS Wide Receiver Picks
Odell Beckham Jr. – at TB ($16,700)
Beckham has only been fully healthy for one game this season, and he posted a 9/79/2 line on 13 targets in that game. He’s the clear focal point of the Giants offense, as he has been targeted multiple times in the red zone, as well. He gets a matchup against the Tampa Bay Bucs, who are allowing 330 passing yards per game this season. Beckham is a target hog, who makes an elite option in all leagues on this slate.
Sammy Watkins – at DAL ($11,000)
Watkins has been an ultra-efficient player this season, but he has only seen big targets in one game. In that game, he recorded six receptions for 106 yards and two touchdowns on seven targets. He was injured in the third quarter of that game, but he has been cleared to play this week. The Cowboys have allowed a few huge games to number one receivers this season, and Watkins should continue to gain the trust of Jared Goff as the season progresses.
FantasyDraft – DFS Tight End Pick
Ryan Griffin – vs TEN ($6,900)
Griffin returned the action last week, catching five of six targets for 61 yards and one touchdown. He gets a good matchup against the Titans, who have struggled at times against the tight end this season. The Texans are playing with a rookie quarterback, and rookies tend to rely on tight ends as security blankets. He’s an extremely cheap source of points at the tight end position.
FantasyDraft – DFS Defense Pick
Arizona Cardinals – vs SF ($6,300)
The Cardinals defense has had a few ups and downs this season, but they have flashed sack and turnover potential. They get a good matchup against the 49ers, who have a questionable offense outside of Carlos Hyde. San Francisco has an implied team total of only 19 points, which is the third worst on the slate. The Cardinals aren’t a very expensive defense, and they can be used in all leagues.
