Week 3 GPP Plays on DraftKings
Matthew Stafford vs. Atlanta $6,200
Luckily for us, Stafford didn’t explode on Monday Night Football last week because the Giants are so bad he didn’t have to. Thus, the game flow didn’t help his fantasy stats. The hope is that keeps his ownership percentage down because things are going to be very different this week. This is my favorite fantasy game in Week 3 and it currently has the second highest Over/Under at 50.5 points. Atlanta will put up points on the other side, forcing Stafford to keep his foot on the gas and his matchup isn’t a daunting one as the Falcons defense gave up the fifth most passing yards last season. Plus, they’ll be playing without 2016 sack leader Vic Beasley due to injury. Stafford is tied for the league lead with six passing TDs and I expect him to keep his early season momentum going in a fantasy-friendly spot in Week 3.
Aaron Rodgers vs. Cincinnati $7,300
Rodgers is at home in a great matchup against a bad Bengals’ team with an average defense. We get to roster Rodgers for a third week in a row in order to win money, especially since Jordy Nelson is practicing in full and is expected to play this week.
