Week 2 Pick’Em Selections on DraftKings
GPP: Ben Roethlisberger vs. Kansas City
Big Ben is back at home, where he historically performs better, in Week 2. Pittsburgh has a healthy Implied Team Total (28.5) and Roethlisberger should add to that mark by taking advantage of a Chiefs defense that ranked 29th in passing yards allowed and 23rd in Pass DVOA a season ago. Last week, I stated the Chiefs are a pass defense I’m attacking every single week and nothing has changed after Philip Rivers dropped 424-and-3 on them in Week 1. Big Ben has huge upside in this one and is extremely interesting in tournaments with the masses likely fading him since James Conner will already be in their lineups.
Cash: Drew Brees vs. Cleveland
Brees was in the ultimate smash spot last week and boy did he come through, throwing for 439 yards and 3 TDs. Brees currently leads the league in passing yards and now gets to play at home again against a Browns’ defense that ranked 19th in passing yards allowed and 26th in Pass DVOA. We’re going right back to the well again here with Brees.
