Week 3 GPP Picks on FanDuel
Patrick Mahomes vs. SF $8,900
So last week, Patrick Mahomes was the perfect GPP play and he won us all kinds of money (hopefully). I was unsure if you could start him in cash given Andy Reid and Mahomes’ lack of experience. Well, he had more touchdowns (six) than incompletions (five) and he has an NFL record 10 touchdowns in the first two games of the season. He looks like a seasoned vet and he’s worth every bit of money this week. This KC offense is lit (80 points in two games) and Mahomes has a ton of weapons at his disposal. It’s hard to believe he has 10 TDs and 582 yards on 38 completions. That’s silly productive, but he has the weapons to back it up. He’ll be a popular tournament play from here on out, but he is the perfect cash option.
Deshaun Watson vs. NYG $7,700
Deshaun Watson looked more like himself last week, minus the bonehead play at the end of the game. We don’t care about that, though. Watson threw for 310 yards with two touchdowns but more importantly ran for 44 yards on five attempts. He has 84 yards on the ground, which is the third most at the QB position. He’s showing zero signs that the knee has been an issue for him to start 2018. The price is right and the matchup is as well. The Giants allowed the second most passing yards in 2017.
