FantasyDraft – DFS Quarterback Pick
Carson Wentz at DAL ($13,100)
Wentz has been enjoying an elite season, averaging 251.3 yards and 2.6 touchdowns per game. He is also averaging 23.4 rushing yards per game, as well. He gets an elite matchup against the Dallas Cowboys, who rank 27th in the NFL against quarterbacks this season. The Eagles have the fourth highest implied team total on the slate at 26 points, making Wentz an elite option, especially for his price this week.
FantasyDraft – DFS Running Back Picks
Kareem Hunt at NYG ($13,400)
Hunt has cooled off a bit recently, but he has been playing at an elite level on the road this season. Through five road games, Hunt is averaging 144.6 total yards per game. He also has four touchdowns over that span. Hunt gets a matchup against the New York Giants, who are allowing 132.6 rushing yards per game. They have also allowed six rushing touchdowns this season. Overall, they rank 25th against the running back, and Hunt makes a great option for somewhat of a reduced price.
James White at OAK ($8,600)
White is an interesting player. Technically White is a running back, but he has essentially been a receiver for the Patriots this season. He is averaging only 3.3 carries per game, but he is third on the team with 56 targets. He also leads the team in receptions with 46, turning those into 376 yards and two touchdowns. The Oakland Raiders have struggled against the pass this season, making White a high upside salary relief option.
FantasyDraft – DFS Wide Receiver Picks
Sterling Shepard vs KC ($12,900)
Shepard has looked outstanding since returning from injury, recording a 16/212 line on 22 targets through two games. He gets an elite matchup against the Kansas City Chiefs, who have struggled against the slot receiver. Shepard is the top option on the Giants offense with Odell Beckham Jr. and Brandon Marshall out for the season. He should continue to see huge major targets, making him an elite option in this matchup.
Amari Cooper vs NE ($11,700)
Cooper has struggled quite a bit this season, but he has been a much better player at home. At home, his catch rate, yards per reception, and touchdown rate all increase. He has been heating up a bit recently, averaging a 6.7/105.3/0.7 line over his last three games. The majority of that came against the Kansas City Chiefs, but he gets another elite matchup this week. The New England Patriots rank 31st in the NFL against wide receivers, and Cooper may be low owned because of how many people he has burned in the past.
FantasyDraft – DFS Tight End Pick
Travis Kelce at NYG ($12,500)
There is no real reason to avoid Kelce tonight. He is one of the best tight ends in the NFL, and he gets an elite matchup against the New York Giants. The Giants rank last in the NFL against the tight end, allowing them to score touchdowns at an elite rate. It would be surprising if Kelce is the first tight end this season not to find the end zone against New York. He isn’t going to come cheap, but he can safely be plugged into all lineup.
FantasyDraft – DFS Defense Pick
Jacksonville Jaguars D/ST at CLE ($7,100)
The Jacksonville Jaguars have featured an elite defense the entire season. They are allowing a league-low 14.9 points per game, while also rarely allowing teams to drive down the field on them. They get a matchup against the Cleveland Browns, who have thrown 18 interceptions as a team this season. Jacksonville is averaging two turnovers per game, as well. Cleveland has a low team total of 14.8 points, making the Jaguars a defense to pay up for.
