FantasyDraft – DFS Quarterback Pick
Tyrod Taylor – vs TB ($10,100)
Taylor has struggled a bit this season, but he gets an elite matchup this week. The Tampa Bay Buccaneers currently rank 31st in the NFL against quarterbacks. They are allowing 302 passing yards per game. They have also allowed 10 touchdowns this season. Through five games, Taylor has looked much better at home this season, and he can be used in all leagues in this matchup.
FantasyDraft – DFS Running Back Picks
Ezekiel Elliott – at SF ($17,000)
Elliott’s legal battle has been a headache to follow, but ultimately, it has been ruled that he is allowed to play this week. That is all that matters for this article. He gets an elite matchup against the San Francisco 49ers. They currently rank 32nd in the NFL against running backs this season. They are allowing 112.8 rushing yards per game, but more importantly, they have already allowed five rushing touchdowns this season. Elliott is one of the best running backs in the NFL, and he can safely be used in all leagues.
Mark Ingram – at GB ($12,600)
Ingram is no longer a hidden secret. Last week, he totaled 150 yards and two touchdowns on 30 touches. He has been an extremely consistent fantasy option this season, but he has now displayed great upside, as well. He gets a good matchup against the Green Bay Packers, who are allowing 119.8 rushing yards per game. They have also allowed five rushing touchdowns this season. The Saints are favorites in a high scoring game, and Ingram makes a great option this week.
FantasyDraft – DFS Wide Receiver Picks
Michael Thomas – at GB ($14,100)
Thomas makes an interesting option. It is well known that Drew Brees is a significantly better fantasy option at home, but that has not seemed to affect Thomas. Through three road games, Thomas is averaging a 6.7/73.7/0.7 line, which is nearly as good as his total production at home. He gets a great matchup against Green Bay, who has struggled against dominant wide receivers this season. Thomas can be used in all leagues.
Robert Woods – vs ARI ($7,800)
Woods has seeming taken over as the top receiver for the Rams. He has been targeted at least seven times in three of his last four games, and he is leading the team in targets. He gets a great matchup against the Cardinals, who have struggled defensively this season. Woods is still surprisingly cheap, and he has found ways to stay consistent. He can be used in all leagues on this slate.
FantasyDraft – DFS Tight End Pick
Delanie Walker – at CLE ($11,000)
Walker is put in an elite position this week. Cleveland has struggled against tight ends, ranking 32nd in the NFL against that position. Furthermore, they have played against replacement level talent, including Jesse James, Ben Watson, and others. Walker is still an elite tight end in the NFL, and he is a huge part of the Titans offense. He is second on the team in targets, and he has seen a few goal line carries this season, as well. He can be used in all leagues.
FantasyDraft – DFS Defense Pick
Tennessee Titans D/ST – at CLE ($6,700)
Cleveland is always an offense to pick on. They have showed little life offensively, while turning the ball over at an elite rate. Through six games, their quarterbacks have combined for 14 interceptions. The Titans are -5.5 favorites in a game set at only 45.5 points. The Titans are going to be owned at an extremely high rate this weekend, and it would be wise to be in that group.
