DFS Pace of Play for Week 3 (Fantasy Football)
Each week I’ll highlight five statistics that will affect matchups this week, five games worth stacking, and five dart throws for tournaments.
Make sure to check out the DFS Podcast where Betz and I breakdown the main slate and highlight some of our favorite plays of the week.
Five Stats to Know
1. Washington might not bring much excitement to the ears of DFSers but there is a drastic contrast in how this team wants to control the clock. In neutral game scripts, they rank dead last in terms of seconds per play but 5th fastest in the second half. Right now the “Football team” is a seven-point road dog against Cleveland. Flying somehow under the radar is the massive increase in Antonio Gibson‘s usage. He saw 66.7 percent of the snaps while Week 1 darling Peyton Barber saw just one snap! Gibson has forced the most missed tackles per touch among 38 RBs with 20 combined carries and receptions according to PFF’s Ian Hartitz. Gibson is still massively underpriced (DK- $4,700, FD-$5,500) and I plan on FLEXing him this week in some tournaments. If Washington is playing from behind especially in the second half, I like Gibson to see 15+ touches which makes him one of the best RBs in terms of touch per dollar on DK.
