DFS First Look Pricing for Week 10 (Fantasy Football)
We are faced with an interesting conundrum this week in DFS-ville. With the late news of Christian McCaffrey‘s shoulder injury, Mike Davis is the free square this week at $4,000 on DraftKings even against Tampa Bay. DraftKings set their prices early on Monday while FanDuel always rolls theirs out in the evening where Davis is $5,400 and still a major value. This is where site-specific plays will be even more valuable this week.
Each week see movement and fluctuation in prices. Like any type of market, some changes are needed, some are overcorrections, and some salaries are just downright wrong. Player pricing on the major DFS platforms is available to us well before we even start our process of building lineups and allows us to identify the inefficiencies, a tool within the toolbelt of someone who wants to win consistently in DFS.
Kyler Murray is the cream of the crop and for good reason. After rushing for 100+ yards last week, he’s in a tier of his own so if you want to pay up for fantasy’s QB1 ($8,000-DK, $8,800-FD) go for it. Aaron Rodgers ($7,900-DK, $8,400-FD) is also a top-end choice although stacking him up Davante Adams eats up a third of your budget.
DraftKings: Russell Wilson served up an absolute dud last week so his roster percentage will take a dip this week. He’s the QB1 on FanDuel but QB3 on DraftKings… How can you not go back to Josh Allen again after four TDs last week? At $7,500, he gets a slight bump but is on my radar in cash against the Cardinals… I will be loading up on Rams stacks starting with Jared Goff at $6,400. After what Josh Allen did to the Seahawks last week, Goff will be a popular play against the league’s worst defense. In his last four games against Seattle, Goff has DK points of 19.34, 28.02, 22.9, and 20.12… Drew Lock ($5,500) is about as low as I’d go in a tournament. He’s had back-to-back three TD weeks and now gets to face a Raiders team that has been torched in the secondary all year long.
