DraftKings GPP Picks for Week 3
Matt Ryan vs. Chicago Bears $6,600
Not many are talking about it, but Matt Ryan is having a pretty good start to his fantasy season. In Week 1, he returned 3.7x value thanks to 450 yards and two touchdowns, and in Week 2, he returned 4.3x value thanks to four passing touchdowns. This week, he will be challenged at home by a 2-0 Bears team that has allowed just one passing touchdown (Matthew Stafford, Daniel Jones) through two weeks. Despite the Bears’ success, they haven’t faced a team with as many healthy weapons as Ryan does. Now, news came out earlier this week that Julio Jones‘s hamstring issue is notable, which could have him at less than 100%. If anything, this will keep Ryan’s ownership numbers down. Still, with Calvin Ridley, Russell Gage, Todd Gurley, and Hayden Hurst, there will be more than enough of firepower to return over 3x value this week–a fine result for a low-owned player in tournaments. The Falcons are 3.5-point favorites with an implied point total of 25.5 points.
