DFS First Look Pricing for Week 3 (Fantasy Football)
For Week 2, the Fantasy Footballers’ DFS Podcast and the First Look article identified some
- Aaron Jones was the RB tournament differentiator on our FanDuel writeups and who we mentioned on the pod could break the slate.
- Russell Wilson, Dak Prescott and Kyler Murray were considered must-starts in cash.
- We called out Jonnu Smith, Tyler Higbee, Hayden Hurst, and Jordan Reed as our favorite TE plays. They all smashed.
- But man, we completely went all-in on Derrick Henry. Whoops.
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.
For the complete list of DraftKings and FanDuel prices, check out this week’s DFS rankings found in the Ultimate DFS Pass.
With Patrick Mahomes and Lamar Jackson off the main slate (although I can’t wait to watch MNF), our options at QB are still solid across the board since QB scoring, especially after last week, is up.
DraftKings: Russell Wilson is going to be chalk after throwing nine TDs and he’s still too cheap especially on DraftKings at $7,300. The DAL-SEA game currently sports a 55.5 over/under!… It still feels like people haven’t noticed how great Kyler Murray has been this season. He’s at home against the hapless Lions with a 54.5 over/under! Play this guy all day at $6,800… Ben Roethlisberger is a safe cash option for the middle tier at $6,400. Houston’s defense is a joke and should be exploited through the air… After throwing four TDs, Ryan Tannehill still isn’t getting the respect he deserves at just $5,900. He will regress in the TD department once Derrick Henry gets going Mitchell Trubisky is tempting at $5,700. The dude is 2-0 and he faces the Falcons on the road. Against bottom-half pass defenses in his career, Trubisky has averaged more than 20 DK points per game.
