Fantasy Football: DraftKings Discounts for 2016 NFL Week 7

Fantasy Football: DraftKings Discounts for 2016 NFL Week 7

Use the weekly DraftKings Discounts column to help fill out your DraftKings lineups.

The DraftKings Discounts column has been on a two-week hiatus, but it's back in time for NFL week 7, the midway point for most season-long fantasy football leagues. Obviously, it's not if you're playing NFL in daily fantasy sports.

The only two teams on a bye this week are the Dallas Cowboys and Carolina Panthers. That means Dak Prescott and Cole Beasley, who have been staples of this column all season, are off this week. However, their salaries have steadily risen, so I'm not sure how much longer they will remain true discounts.

As I've mentioned before, as the season progresses, good discounts are harder to come by, but here are a few to help you fill your DraftKings lineups this week.

Quarterbacks:

There is a nicely-priced stair-step of quarterbacks from $6.5k down to $5.9k. Philip Rivers, in a sweet matchup at Atlanta, is priced at $6500. Matthew Stafford at home vs. the Redskins is underpriced (IMHO) at $6400. Derek Carr is only $6300 at Jacksonville, where Blake Bortles is priced at $6200. All of those are good plays and solid cash-game considerations. However, the cheaper three are:

  • Alex Smith (KC) - $6100. The Saints defense in KC. It doesn't get much better than that.
  • Andy Dalton (Cin) - $6000. Unless it's the Browns defense in Cincinnati.
  • Kirk Cousins (Was) $5900. Or the Lions defense anywhere.

Running Backs:

Jacquizz Rodgers has one of the nicest price-matchup combinations, but his ownership percentage should be higher after last week's 20+ point performance. Ditto for Matt Jones and Jay Ajayi, who are also priced relatively cheaply. If you want something a little contrarian, try the Browns-Bengals matchup.

  • Isaiah Crowell (Cle) - $4000. He's no Ezekiel Elliott, and the O-line is no Cowboys' line, but the price is right.
  • Duke Johnson (Cle) - $3900. If you think it will be a blowout, play Duke for the junk-time receptions.
  • Jeremy Hill (Cin) - $4000. He's about due for a Jeremy Hill 3-touchdown game, and who better than the Browns to accommodate?

Wide Receivers:

Where to begin? Receivers are easiest to find because there are plenty of them, but they're also harder to predict with any level of accuracy in the lower price ranges. I'll keep it simple. Let's go with the cheap guys who absolutely went off last week. I hate chasing points, but these recent high scorers do have the potential to be more frequent high scorers considering the offenses in which they play. I wouldn't play a single one of these in cash games, but they have helped win a few tournaments recently.

  • Golden Tate (Det) - $4900. He was supposed to be the next Megatron instead of Marvitron.
  • Kendall Wright (Ten) - $3700. Talk about a resurrection from the dead.
  • Adam Thielen (Min) - $3700. Stefon who?

Tight Ends:

This is probably a good week to pay up for Kelce or Walker, who both have juicy matchups. If you can't, give these a go:

  • Hunter Henry (SD) - $3600. This kid is for real.
  • Gary Barnidge (Cle) - $3200. If the Browns are in catch-mode, watch out.
  • Jesse James (Pit) - $3100. New QB could spell bust, could also possibly spell boom.

Defenses (DSTs):

Defensive bargains are harder to come by, and their variance is ridiculous, so I would recommend paying up for the Bills or Bengals. However, if you need to save a few bucks, there are a few mid-level defenses to look at.

  • Patriots (NE) $2900. They're consistent, and the Steelers have a new quarterback.
  • Ravens (Bal) $2800. At the Geno Smith-led Jets.
  • Chiefs (KC) $2600. The Saints. Outdoors. In Arrowhead.

Discounts are discounts for a reason. They're not always good plays, but a decent tournament lineup could be made up of any combination of guys on this list this week. For example a Dalton-Barnidge-Johnson game stack, or a Cousins-Tate-etc. game stack. I'm not necessarily advocating that you do it, but I wouldn't be too critical of it either.

As always, may your DFS lineups be profitable.

Fantasy Football: DraftKings Sunday Stack for NFL Week 4

Fantasy Football: DraftKings Sunday Stack for NFL Week 4

DraftKings Sunday Stacks for NFL Week 4.

DraftKings Sunday Stacks for NFL Week 4.

If you missed this week's DraftKings Discounts column and you still need a few cheap, good plays to fill your DraftKings lineups, be sure to check that out after you start your lineups with these Sunday Stacks.

The Indy@Jacksonville game is being played in London, and it's set for a 9:30 a.m. (CST) kickoff. That means Andrew Luck and Blake Bortles, both solid plays this week in what should be a shootout, aren't on the main slate. If you want in on this game, you have to play the early 13-game slate.

The main slate has a few dandies. The Saints at Chargers has the highest Over/Under of the week at 53.5 when I last checked, so you need plenty of exposure to this game. Both quarterbacks are solid plays in cash and tournaments. They will both also probably be among the highest owned quarterbacks.

In last week's Sunday Stack, I was advocating Rivers against the Colts, and I have Rivers in a few lineups this week. However, the other quarterback I was hyping was Joe Flacco at the Jags, and I'm going back to that well, again, against a terrible Raiders defense. My other cash-game QB is Dak Prescott at San Francisco. The Cowboys should run an increased number of plays on offense against the 49ers, and Dak is due for touchdown passes.

For tournaments, there are plenty of options, but I like Flacco, again. I also like a Dak-Beasley stack for tournaments. They're both due for touchdowns. However, I'm gambling on Carson Palmer to have a big bounce back this week against the Rams. If you're desperate for a bargain, Brian Hoyer vs. the Lions is as juicy as it gets.

Cash Game Stacks:

  • Joe Flacco (QB-Bal) - $5900. The Raiders are as bad if not worse than the Jags.
  • Dennis Pitta (TE-Bal) - $3900. This stack is under $10K, and you can't beat that.

And:

Tournament Stacks:

  • Carson Palmer (QB-Ari) - $6300. You can't keep Carson down.
  • Larry Fitzgerald (WR-Ari) - $7200. He's Palmer's favorite right now.
  • David Johnson (RB-Ari) - $7800. He's money every week.

And:

  • Brian Hoyer (QB-Chi) - $5000. He had 300+ yards last week against a better defense, and at min. price, he's a must play.
  • Kevin White (WR-Chi) - $3400. Jeffery is better, but he's gimpy and questionable for Sunday.
  • Zach Miller (TE-Chi) $2700. He's too cheap not to play.

There are plenty of good options this week, so look for opportunities to distinguish your lineups from the field. As always, may your DFS lineups be profitable!

Fantasy Football: DraftKings Discounts for 2016 NFL Week 4

DraftKings Discounts for NFL week 4.

DraftKings Discounts for NFL week 4.

Filling out your DraftKings lineups can be tricky when there are a lot of high-priced studs you want to play. You always need a few cheap but solid plays. And that's exactly what you get every week in the DraftKings Discounts column.

If you need a last-minute waiver add, check out TJ's I ADD-ore You column for 2016 NFL week 4.

This week's DraftKings Discounts are:

Quarterbacks:

  • Joe Flacco (Bal) $5900. It's a great matchup at home, so I'm going back to the Flacco well.
  • Trevor Siemian (Den) $5400. 300+ yards and 4 TDs at Cincy, and he draws the Buccs this week.
  • Cody Kessler (Cle) $5000. If you're desperate for dollars, you could do worse than a QB vs. the Redskins defense.

Running Backs:

  • Isaiah Crowell (Cle) $4400. The Browns are on their 3rd QB. This game has Crowell written all over it.
  • Carlos Hyde (SF) $4200. The Cowboys defense is questionable at best.
  • Jordan Howard (Chi) $3700. He's going to be total chalk, but Detroit's defense is worse than Dallas'.

Wide Receivers:

  • Tyrell Williams (SD) $4400. The Saints defense is worse than Detroit's and Dallas'.
  • Terrelle Pryor, Sr. (Cle) $4300. The Browns are cheap for a reason, but Pryor had 14 targets last week and 10 the week prior.
  • Cole Beasley (Dal) $3900. His price finally jumped $700, but he's still a bargain.

Tight Ends:

  • Dennis Pitta (Bal) $3900. He's Flacco's favorite target, and he's averaging 10 targets over the last two weeks.
  • Coby Fleener (NO) $3200. Because of poor showings in the first two weeks and a Monday night game last week, his price actually dropped $600. His ownership percentage will be sky high, but he could pay off big time.
  • Zach Miller (Chi) $2700. At under $3K, he's worth every penny, especially if Brian Hoyer starts again.

Defenses (DSTs):

  • Jets (NYJ) $2800. Discounted DSTs are hard to come by, but a hobbled Russell Wilson could prove problematic for the Seahawks traveling cross country for an early start.

I ADD-ore You-Fantasy Football Waiver Wire Adds for NFL Week 4

Dennis Pitta (TE-Bal) is a top fantasy football waiver wire add for NFL week 3.

Luckily, this past Sunday wasn't the blood bath that last week was. There were a few injuries, but this column is more about the matchups and guys that are performing.

I couldn't be happier that I don't have to write about a bunch of handcuffs this week!

Quarterbacks:

  • Joe Flacco (Bal) 23.8%, v. Oak. Flacco has weapons in Baltimore. Oakland is bottom 5 in the league against QBs. Flacco at home should be a solid streaming option in a short bye week.
  • Trevor Siemian (Den) 4.8%, @TB. Siemian had a monster week 3 and is playing a Tampa Bay team that has struggled mightily against the pass. He is a solid streaming option again this week. He has to prove a lot more before he's looked at as a starter.
  • Brian Hoyer (Chi) 1.5%, v. Det. Hoyer is playing against a beat up Lions defense. Hoyer should have a solid game against a team that can't rush the passer, stop the run, or defend multiple pass options, including the TE. Hoyer is a streamer for this week only.

Running Backs:

  • Jordan Howard (Chi) 15.9%, v. Det. Howard is the bell cow in Chicago. He is playing a banged-up run defense in Detroit. Howard should be added and played in week 4.
  • Kenneth Dixon (Bal) 14%, v. Oak. Dixon might not play in week 4, but he is practicing, which means you need to add him now. He will be the lead back in Baltimore before season's end.
  • Orleans Darkwa (NYG) 5.1%, @Min. It's a terrible matchup, but with Jennings nursing a hand injury and Vereen out for the season, Darkwa is a starting running back in the league, which holds value.

Wide Receivers:

  • Terrelle Pryor (Cle) 28%, @Was. Pryor looked like one of the best players in the NFL Sunday. He is and will continue to be involved in the offense. Add Pryor.
  • Jamison Crowder (Was) 11.2%, v. Cle. Crowder is the best wide receiver in Washington. He was looked at as just a slot guy, but he has evolved this season. Crowder needs to be added in all PPR leagues and should be a great bye-week fill-in for standard leagues.
  • Phillip Dorsett (Ind) 49.9%, @Jax (in London). Dorsett is the #2 WR in Indy, and that should be enough, but, they are playing a porous Jacksonville defense. Indy should score a lot of points, and expect Dorsett to be involved in that.

Tight Ends:

  • Dennis Pitta (Bal) 55.2%, v. Oak. Pitta should be added in every league. As long as he's healthy, he's a top-8 TE.
  • Zach Miller (Chi) 42.1%, v. Det. Miller had a big week against Dallas and is now going against one of the worst defenses against the tight end. Miller is the best TE streamer for week 4.
  • Hunter Henry (SD) 12%, v. NO. Henry is going to be special. He looked great last week, and Gates is probably out again. Henry is a great streamer, but you will have to monitor the Gates situation.

Defenses (DSTs):

  • New York Jets 54.4%, v. Sea. The Jets get a Russell Wilson-less Seahawks team that is coming to NY. The Jets will right the ship on defense and be a dominant group.
  • Baltimore Ravens 50.3%, v. Oak. This one doesn't seem to make sense, but the Raiders are going cross country and playing an early game.
  • Washington Redskins 2.7%, v. Cle. This week's Browns opponent.

Hopefully, by now, most of your teams are starting to look more like what you want them to look like. If not, keep active on the waiver wire.

Happy Hunting.

Fantasy Football: Man Crush Monday for NFL Week 3

Trevor Siemian (QB-Den) is a good fantasy football streaming option during the NFL bye weeks.

If week 2 taught us nothing, week 3 did exactly the same, only more so. I know much less about football than I did before this football season started.

With that said, here are some guys I enjoyed watching in week 3.

Trevor Siemian (QB-Den).

Siemian went to Cincy and did big boy things. He threw for 4 TDs and over 300 yards in his first away game. A pretty awesome feat, especially against a defense that is supposed to be top 10. Siemian should be a good bye week replacement for the upcoming byes.

Charles Sims (RB-TB).

Sims took over for Doug Martin in week 3 and did well. Sims is a must add and must start until Martin is back.

Terrelle Pryor (WR-Cle).

The Browns have playmakers! Yeah, you heard me right, playmakers. Pryor caught the ball, threw the ball, ran the ball, and even played a little safety. Pryor was awesome hauling in 144 yards worth of receptions. Pryor should be added everywhere and play him until we see how the Josh Gordon situation plays out.

Zach Miller (TE-Chi).

Miller was the only offense for Chicago. This was probably his game of the season even going forward. He is a streaming option and could be added as a low-end TE1.

Maybe next week things will even out in the NFL. My opinion: probably not.

Fantasy Football: Sunday Stack-DraftKings Plays for NFL Week 3

Comment

Fantasy Football: Sunday Stack-DraftKings Plays for NFL Week 3

Joe Flacco (QB-Bal) is an excellent DraftKings cash-game and tournament play for NFL week 3.

If you're looking for DraftKings bargains for your DFS fantasy football lineups, check out the DraftKings Discounts column for NFL week 3. If you're looking for Quarterback-Receiver stacks to play this week, you're in the right place.

Typically, in this column, I write about a couple of cash-game and tournament stacks you can play in your DFS lineups. However, this week, I want to write about the same stack played with slight modifications for cash games and tournaments.

There are obvious plays this week: Matt Ryan & Julio Jones vs. Drew Brees & Brandin Cooks/Willie Snead; Matthew Stafford & Marvin Jones vs. Aaron Rodgers & Jordy Nelson/Randall Cobb. It's hard to go wrong with any of those, but with all eyes on the glamour matchups, why not pivot to another high over/under game with quarterbacks who've had recent forgettable performances: Philip Rivers and the wounded Bolts vs. Andrew Luck and the depleted Colts. Both defenses are dreadful, and the receiving corps are MASH units, so there are bargains to be had.

I'm playing Luck in a variety of cash-game lineups, but I'm less confident in the pairings, so my preferred stacks are the various Rivers stacks.

Also, the rumors of a resurgent Jaguars defense were highly exaggerated, and Joe Flacco is due for a 300+ yard, 3 touchdown game. Bortles is also a decent option, but for the $400 savings, I'm flying high with Flacco.

And here is how you can turn confidence in certain quarterback plays into both cash-game and tournament victories. These are the Sunday Stacks for DraftKings lineups in NFL week 3:

Cash-Game Stacks:

  • Philip Rivers (QB-SD) - $6700. SD @ Ind is the second highest O/U of the week at 51 points; and
  • Travis Benjamin (WR-SD) $5200.  His price hasn't caught up to his value.

Also:

  • Joe Flacco (QB-Bal) - $6100. Tied for the fourth highest O/U, but the least sexy matchup of all; and
  • Dennis Pitta (TE-Bal) - $3400. This stack leaves a lot of Benjamins for some of the other Benjamins.

Tournament Stacks:

  • Philip Rivers (QB-SD) - $6700. Might as well be all-in; and
  • Travis Benjamin (WR-SD) - $5200. He's still dirt cheap for a No. 1 receiver; and/or
  • Tyrell Williams (WR-SD) - $4300 or Hunter Henry (TE-SD) - $2500. ***If Gates is out.

And:

  • Joe Flacco (QB-Bal) - $6100. He's due, and I'm all-in; and
  • Mike Wallace (WR-Bal) - $5000. He's quietly averaging 20 fantasy points per game; and
  • Dennis Pitta (TE-Bal) - $3400. He's Flacco's safety blanket again.

As I mentioned, there are plenty of great quarterback options this week. Feel free to fly solo with many of them. These stacks, however, should be productive and they're cheap. In DFS, that's a nice combo.

Fantasy Football: DraftKings Discounts for 2016 NFL Week 3

Joe Flacco (QB-Bal) is a good quarterback value in DFS for NFL week 3.

As I mentioned in last week's DraftKings Discounts column, bargains are getting harder to come by, but they're out there if you're willing to do a little homework. And you are, that's why you're here.

Here are a few of the bargains on DraftKings for NFL week 3.

Quarterbacks:

Derek Carr, Matthew Stafford, Philip Rivers, and Blake Bortles are all priced under $7000, and all have good matchups. So take your pick. I would suggest Rivers for tournaments and Carr or Stafford for cash games. However, the true bargains are:

  • Joe Flacco (Bal) - $6100. Flacco is hard to trust on a week-to-week basis, but he invariably has a few big games every year. If this week isn't one of them against Jacksonville, something is wrong.
  • Marcus Mariota (Ten) - $5900. He plays Oakland, and the rumors about the Raiders defense being better this year are false.
  • Dak Prescott (Dal) $5700. From week 1 to week 2, his salary jumped $800. After a better week 2 performance, his salary dropped $100, and he plays the Bears.

Running Backs:

Melvin Gordon is going to be the chalkiest of chalk this week at $5800 with Danny Woodhead out for the season, and rightfully so. He's a fine cash-game play this week. Honestly, this is a week to spend up at running back because the cheap options are ugly. If you need someone dirt cheap, however, give these guys a whirl:

  • Jerick McKinnon (Min) - $3800 or Matt Asiata (Min) - $3000. Asiata will get the goal line work, but McKinnon is probably the more talented back. The Panthers matchup is tough on paper, but they haven't been the Panthers yet this year.
  • Kenyan Drake (Mia) - $3600 or Jay Ajayi (Mia) - $4000. The Dolphins draw the Browns at home, but they don't seem to be all that impressed with Ajayi.
  • LeGarrette Blount (NE) - $4400. The Texans defense is a tough matchup on a Thursday night, but the Pats are on QB number 3, so Blount could be in for a lot of work.

Wide Receivers:

There are plenty of mid-priced wide receivers to choose from, so you may not be as desperate for bargains at this spot. However, just in case:

  • Nelson Agholor (Phi) - $3500. The Eagles defense has been impressive. Of course, it's been against the Browns and the Bears. Against the Steelers, however, they should be chasing points.
  • Cole Beasley (Dal) - $3200. This is the third week in a row Beasley has appeared in this column, and this is the third week in a row his salary has remained constant at $3200. As long as his salary remains that low, and as long as Dak is the Dallas QB, Beasley will remain a bargain.
  • Greg Salas (Buf) - $3000 or Marquise Goodwin (Buf) - $3000. I'm not a big believer in either, but the Bills should be chasing points against the Cardinals. Last week, that proved beneficial for both. Tourneys only, please.

Tight Ends:

Believe it or not, the terrible tight end situation we find ourselves in means there are a lot of good value plays. Here are the best for this week:

  • Dennis Pitta (Bal) $3400. Pair him with Flacco in a stack this week, and you'll have money to spend elsewhere.
  • Jacob Tamme (Atl) $3200. Have I mentioned that he draws the Saints? Throw Tamme into your Matt Ryan-Julio Jones stacks.
  • Clive Walford (Oak) $2800. Have I mentioned that he draws the Titans? I might sneak him into a Carr-Cooper/Crabtree lineup.

Defenses (DSTs):

  • Dolphins (Mia) - $3000. That's right, the Dolphins. Cleveland is also on their third QB. The Texans are priced the same, but it's a Thursday Night Game in New England, which is unpredictable. I like them both at the price point, but the Dolphins have more upside.
  • Cowboys (Dal) - $2500. That's right, the Cowboys. This is one of those tournament plays that could pay off big time. Cutler is officially questionable but likely out. This could be a 17-10 type of game, and a turnover or two is likely.
  • 49ers (SF) - $2400. That's right, the 49ers...against the Seahawks, who have put up all of 15 points in two games...against the Dolphins and the Rams. Again, a tourney play that could pay off big time.

When you're looking for discounts, you have to leave no stone unturned. As always, may your DFS lineups be profitable.

I ADD-ore You-Waiver Wire Adds for NFL Week 3

There were plenty of injuries in NFL week 2, including Adrian Peterson (RB-Min).

Week 2 is in the books, and we're no wiser. We didn't really learn anything except players get hurt. You could field a pretty decent team with the players that got hurt in week 2.

With that in mind, here are a few guys to target going into week 3:

Quarterbacks:

  • Matt Ryan (Atl) @ NO. Ryan has had the best start to his NFL career. Yes, it's only 2 games, but it's been a great 2 games, and he gets New Orleans on Monday Night Football. It sounds like more ammo for him being a top-12 QB this season and a high-end QB in week 3.
  • Joe Flacco (Bal) @ Jax. Flacco found some new toys this season, and an old one. Mike Wallace is getting targeted, and Dennis Pitta is back...until he's not. Flacco should be able to carve up a Jacksonville secondary that still needs some work.
  • Ryan Tannehill (Mia) v Cle. The running game is in flux, and the Browns are coming to town. This is a put-up or shut-up game for Tannehill. Parker was involved in the offense, so I like the idea of Tannehill finally putting up.

Running Backs:

  • Christine Michael (Sea) v SF. Thomas Rawls still isn't right, and Fozzy Whitaker just ran for 100 yards against this defense on the road. Michael is a no-brainer if Rawls doesn't play, and he is a flex option if he does.
  • Jerick McKinnon (Min) @ Car. Peterson isn't playing in week 3. Carolina is a tough matchup, but Minnesota wants to feature the running back.
  • Dwayne Washington (Det) @ GB. Abdullah is going to be out a few weeks, and the Lions have tried to run the ball a little more than they usually do. Washington is the goal line back, and he'll get the 1st and 2nd down work. It's a speculative add, but this offense should score.

Wide Receivers:

  • Tajae Sharpe (Ten) v Oak. Oakland needs some work in the defensive backfield, and Sharpe is the lead wideout for Tennessee.
  • Tyrell Williams (SD) @ Ind. Any starting offensive player versus Indy is a must play. Williams also had a very impressive TD scamper on Sunday.
  • Phillip Dorsett (Ind) v SD. Donte Moncrief is likely out for the game, but even if he's not, Dorsett has shown to be a favorite target of Luck.

Tight Ends:

  • Dennis Pitta (Bal) @ Jax. He had 9 catches for over 100 yards. Add Pitta.
  • Dwayne Allen (Ind) v SD. Jack Doyle is getting some play, but Allen is still the guy. This offense is throwing the ball.
  • Zach Miller (Chi) @ Dal. Cutler may not play. Miller is going to get targets in Dallas on SNF.

Defenses (DST):

  • Buccaneers v LAR. LA is going cross country. They didn't have a good offense to begin with.
  • Dolphins v Cle. Cleveland is already on QB number 3, and they're Cleveland. 
  • Dallas v Chicago. Who knows who the QB will be (Cutler or Hoyer), and they're not great either way.

All players are under 60% owned. There are others out there (Carolina backs, Matt Asiata) but these guys should be added if the need is on your team.

Happy Hunting!

Man Crush Monday-2016 NFL Week 2

Matt Ryan (QB-Atl) is a top fantasy football performer after 2 weeks.

If we thought we learned anything in week one, we were wrong. We didn't.

If you have players still standing, consider it a win. Here are a few guys that stood up and stood out and made my Man Crush Monday...on Tuesday.

Matt Ryan (QB, Atl).

I was one of the few guys saying that I would be happy with Matt Ryan as a streamer and a stand alone QB in deep leagues. After two weeks, he's making me look smart. Add Ryan and play his right arm until he cools down.

Isaiah Crowell (RB, Cle).

Crowell is another guy we were touting this offseason. You want a guy that can run for 100, that's Crowell. How about a TD scorer, that's also Crowell. Okay, so you want a lead back on a run-first team, that's also Crowell! Add him if you can.

Stefon Diggs (WR, Min).

Diggs is a WR2 going forward and has been awesome. Welcome to my Viking WR love, Mr Diggs! Needless to say, he should be at 100% owned.

Dennis Pitta (TE, Bal).

Pitta has had some horrendous injuries. He had 4 targets in his comeback game, then caught 9 for over 100 yards in week 2. Tight end is thin, add him if you need one. He'll be startable every week.

We need to hope that week 3 is nothing like week 2, or this column will turn into a Bloody Valentine segment if this continues.
