NFL DFS DraftKings GPP Picks: Week 3 (Fantasy Football)
For the purposes of this article, I’ll be highlighting plays that I believe have a solid range of outcomes at reduced roster percentage, but that doesn’t mean we can’t sprinkle in some cash plays into our lineup as well. For my full breakdown on DraftKings for Week 3 cash games, be sure to check out my picks here.
When building your GPP lineups, be sure to reference our all new Roster Percentage Report as well as our DFS Rankings in order to identify plays who have a solid projection yet may be undervalued relative to the field. In order to compete in GPPs, we’ll want to utilize a combination of cash plays and GPP plays in order to build solid lineups without sacrificing too much in the way of projection. For more on how to use roster percentages and build strong GPP lineups, be sure to check out this episode of the DFS Podcast.
Patrick Mahomes $8,200
The price tag on Mahomes this week is difficult, but he’s a great “spend up to be contrarian” option in Week 3 against the Chargers. We routinely see Mahomes stacks come in lower in popularity than maybe they should in tournaments, and this game between the Chiefs and Chargers features a 55-point total with Vegas projecting the Chiefs to 30.8 points, the highest on Week 3’s slate. With the Chiefs, struggling to get the run game going, they seem content to let Mahomes carry this offense again in 2021.
