Week 3 GPP Plays on DraftKings
Patrick Mahomes vs. San Francisco $7,000
Hitting it big in DFS is all about identifying the best fantasy games and blow-up spots. Last week, it was Kansas City at Pittsburgh thanks to the passing success of Big Ben and Mahomes. Through two games, Mahomes is averaging 291 passing yards and 5 passing TDs and now gets to play in another great fantasy game. This time, at home in a game with a current 56.5 point Over/Under against a 49ers’ defense that ranked 22nd in passing yards allowed and 28th in pass DVOA last season.
Deshaun Watson vs. New York Giants $6,100
Watson seemed to shake off the rust last week, throwing for 310 yards and 2 TDs while rushing for an additional 44 yards. He seems to be well recovered from his 2017 ACL tear and now gets to play at home against a Giants’ defense that ranked 31st in passing yards allowed and 19th in Pass DVOA in 2017. As he showed last season, Watson offers extreme weekly overall QB1 upside and this could be a spot where he hits big.
