As a reminder, the number in the parenthesis is the number of experts that chose that player so you have more context regarding the gaps between players and the tiers.

Quarterbacks

Highly Touted

  • Derek Carr (7x) – 7% Cash / 9% GPP – Carr gets a vulnerable Panthers pass defense. He’s coming off a three TD game in Mexico on Monday night.
  • Drew Brees (7x) – 7% / 9% – Brees has eight TD passes in the last three games. He faces off against a Rams defense that is pretty salty.

Recommended

  • Tom Brady (6x) – 6% / 7% – Brady had four TD passes last week. Per the usual, he’s the top priced passer on the board.
  • Carson Palmer (5x) – 4% / 6% – Palmer is a nice value play against the Falcons this week, who have allowed the most DFS points to opposing QBs.
  • Rusell Wilson (5x) – 4% / 6% – Wilson has not put up less than 25 points on DK in the last three games. The Bucs have allowed the 4th most DFS points to opposing QBs.

Suggested

  • Eli Manning (4x) – 3% / 5% – Eli has nine TD passes in the last three games. He’s facing the Browns and they allow a ton of DFS points through the air.
  • Cam Newton (4x) – 3% / 5% – Cam played awful last Thursday in a win against the Saints. He gets his shot at redemption on the road in Oakland.
  • Colin Kaepernick (4x) – 3% / 5% – Kaep has been a nice value play for the last month. He has 19+ DK points in three straight weeks.
  • Marcus Mariota (3x) – 2% / 4% – Mariota’s price has skyrocketed. He’s the 2nd highest priced QB on the board on DK but he’s been putting up great numbers.

Running Backs

Highly Touted

  • Jay Ajayi (12x) – 48% / 28% – The Niners allow the most DFS points to RBs and Ajayi is having himself a fine season.
  • David Johnson (9x) – 22% / 16% – Johnson got back over the 100-yard mark last week. He gets the Falcons defense who has allowed the 2nd most DFS points to RBs.
  • Thomas Rawls (9x) – 22% / 16% – With Christine Michael gone and CJ Prosise hurt, Rawls will be the bellcow in the Seattle backfield.
  • Melvin Gordon (8x) – 20% / 15% – Gordon scores touchdowns and a lot of them. He has topped the 36 point mark on DK in two of the last four games.
  • Rashad Jennings (8x) – 20% / 15% – The Browns allow the 3rd most DFS points to RBs and Jennings has topped 85 yards in each of the last two games.

Recommended

  • Jeremy Hill (5x) – 6% / 8% – Gio Bernard is done for the year so Hill becomes a decent value play. I’ll stay away from him this week though as Baltimore does not allow many DFS points to RBs.
  • Carlos Hyde (5x) – 6% / 8% – Hyde has not found the endzone the last three games and has not topped 100 yards since week 3.

Suggested

  • Lamar Miller (3x) – 3% / 6% – Miller got back on track last week as he rushed for 104 yards and a touchdown.
  • Chris Ivory (3x) – 3% / 6% – Ivory caught 6 balls for 75 yards last week. With the Jags falling behind so often, his value may be catching the ball out of the backfield.

Wide Receivers

Highly Touted

  • Tyler Boyd (11x) – 36% / 20% – With AJ Green out, Boyd becomes a great value play at $4K on DK. He caught 6 balls for 54 yards and a touchdown last week.
  • Larry Fitzgerald (9x) – 22% / 15% – Fitz hasn’t scored since week 5 but has still scored in double-digits each week.
  • DeVante Parker (7x) – 17% / 13% – Parker has put together two good games in a row for the first time in his career.

Recommended

  • Amari Cooper (6x) – 14% / 12% – Cooper has scored in two of the last three games.
  • Doug Baldwin (6x) – 14% / 12% – Has scored 22 and 29.9 DK points in the last two weeks.
  • Julian Edelman (5x) – 11% / 10% – Edelman was targeted an astounding 17 times last week.
  • Rishard Matthews (5x) – 11% / 10% – The Bears allow the most DFS points to opposing WRs and Matthews has four TDs in the last four games.

Suggested

  • Jarvis Landry (4x) – 7% / 8% – Landry has caught all 11 balls thrown his way the last two weeks.
  • Odell Beckham, Jr. (4x) – 7% / 8% – Beckham only saw 7 targets last week. Potentially a blowout game which could limit his looks again this week.
  • Corey Coleman (3x) – 5% / 7% – With McCown back this week, the value of the Browns’ receivers goes up.
  • Michael Thomas (3x) – 5% / 7% – His pricing has gone way up. He’s a consistent receiver though that is good for 50-100 yards every week.

Tight Ends

Highly Touted

  • No Players

Recommended

  • Jimmy Graham (6x) – 9% / 10% – Graham is not receiving a ton of targets but has three TDs in the last three games.
  • Greg Olsen (6x) – 9% / 10% – The Raiders have been a bit vulnerable to the TE this season. Olsen has had a bit of an up and down year.
  • CJ Fiedorowicz (5x) – 6% / 7% – He received 10 targets last week. Has become a big time target for Brock Osweiler.

Suggested

  • Travis Kelce (4x) – 5% / 6% – Kelce has topped the 100 yard mark in two of the last four games.
  • Delanie Walker (4x) – 5% / 6% – A safe play most weeks. Only caught four balls for 36 yards last week.
  • Gary Barnidge (3x) – 4% / 5% – Barnidge has only caught three balls in the last two games though one of those was a TD last week.
  • Vance McDonald (3x) – 4% / 5% – McDonald has scored in two of the last three games.

Defense/Special Teams

Highly Touted

  • Tennesse Titans (8x) – 15% / 13% – The Titans get the Bears this week. With Cutler out, the Bears will be struggling at the QB position.

Recommended

  • Buffalo Bills (6x) – 13% / 11% – The Bills have 10 sacks in the last three games.
  • New York Giants (5x)  11% / 10% – The Browns has not been lighting the world on fire offensively. With McCown back, I’m a bit less likely to pick on them this week though.

Suggested

  • Atlanta Falcons (3x) – 4% / 4% – The Cardinals offense has not been what it was the last couple of years.
  • Houston Texans (3x) – 4% / 4% – A pretty solid value play as they fall way down the line in pricing this week.
  • New Orleans Saints (3x) – 4% / 4% – Can we pick on Goff yet? If you think so, feel free to play the Saints.
