Week 3 Cash Game Picks on FanDuel
Matt Ryan @ DET ($8,500)
This is the third straight week I’ve written up Matt Ryan. This Lions and Falcons game opened up with the second highest point total of the week at 49. The Lions have allowed 507 yards in the first two weeks which is the 10th most in the NFL. Ryan will allow you to save a bit of cap space as his price point is still pretty low considering the high-powered offense and the matchup. This is pretty close to the same team that allowed a league-high 33 passing touchdowns last season. Don’t be fooled into think they are a legit defense because of poor performances from Carson Palmer and Eli Manning.
Derek Carr @ WSH ($8,400)
Carr has all the tools and weapons in the world to be successful at home or on the road. This Oakland and Washington game has the highest point total of any game this week at 54. Carr’s five passing touchdowns are the third most in the league and his 75 completion percentage also ranks third. Carson Wentz went into Washington in Week 1 and threw for over 300 yards and so far this secondary has allowed the seventh most passing yards so far.
