Best DraftKings DFS Lineup Plays for Week 7

Fantasy Football

Welcome to this week’s Daily Fantasy Roundup, your cheatsheet where we’ll highlight some of the great bargains and player picks that you need to set a great DraftKings lineup every week. If you’ve been following this column and using the Salary Cap Crusher, you will see how they supplement each other.

At this point in the season we are starting to see how the good players are and those that are starting to emerge and provide us with a great value or sleeper play.  We can finally get an understanding of what these teams are from a matchup perspective.. We know what players get the targets and how many they will get.  These factors help us make more accurate projections and calculate each players Cost Per Point (CPP) to determine where the salary cap bargains are so we can find great value plays to put in our lineup.  Daily fantasy football carries such a high-variance but with the data we now have, we can start figuring a players production ceiling and floor.

Now let’s get into some value plays, DFS concepts and some great matchups I’m excited to exploit for week 7


Andrew Luck $7,600, had a good week last with passing for 312 yards, but this week he gets a much better match in the Saints, who have allowed five of six passers to score at least 20 fantasy points

Carson Palmer $6,700 should be salivating this week.  He gets the Ravens who have allowed 3 of the last five quarterbacks to score 30+ fantasy points against them.

Brew Brees 7,000:  The Colts have let quarterbacks put up about 300 yards a game against them and multiple touchdowns.

Blake Bortles $5,400: The Bills have allowed multiple passing touchdowns in all but one game this season, providing opposing QB’s with an average of 19 fantasy points per game.  For his salary of $5,400 of DraftKings and his $351 cost per point make his a great GPP play this week.

Other Players to Consider: Cam Newton, Ryan Tannehill

Running Backs

Adrian Peterson $7,600, did have a good week for fantasy owners last week, but this week he gets the Lions who struggle against the run.  Week 2 Peterson had a good week against them.

Davonta Freeman $7,900:  What can I say, you have to ride that train as long as you can plus his CPP is $451 at a modest 17 fantasy points a game.

Todd Gurley $5,000($340 CPP) not only has a great matchup against the Browns, but at a modest average projection of 14 pts, his cost per point scored is only $340 which is about the best this week.  Gurley has put up over 145 yards in each of his last two games.

Doug Martin $4,900 has been on fire the last two weeks and now gets a Washington team that has been  gashed by the Jets and Falcons the last two weeks.

Players to Consider: Danny Woodhead

Wide Receivers

John Brown $5,500 has a great matchup against a Ravens team that has been beat by the deep ball a number of times.

Willie Snead $4,300: Is playing the Colts who have been getting burned by slot receivers all season.  Vonte Davis should be covering Brandon Cooks, so that should leave Snead, the Saints more reliable receiver as of late, in a favorable matchup.

Donte Moncrief $5,200 on DraftKings is facing the Saints that allow the 11th most fantasy points to wide receivers.  Montcrief also gets more touchdowns that T.Y. Hilton as well.
Tight Ends

Antonio Gates $5,000:  Last week Gates hurt his knee, but if hes good this week, he should do well since the Raiders bleed fantasy points to tight ends.

Delanie Walker $3,900 – Last week Ben Watson beat the Falcons with 10 catches and a pair of touchdowns.

Charles Clay $4,300 – Bills are short on pass catchers and are playing the Jags

Other Tight Ends to consider: Gary Barnidge (hes been matchup proof)


Rams $2,400 – At home the Rams D seems to get more intense.  I expect McCown to have a few turnovers this week.

Redskins $2,500 – Once of my favorite for the price.  Tampa is usually good for a few turnovers and I expect Washington to pound the rock on offense and play it safe.

Other Defenses to consider: Panthers

Week 17 FanDuel & DraftKings Player Cheat Sheet

NFL Daily Fantasy
Welcome back for for  the 2014 week 17 regular season finale.  Our last week of a full slate of fantasy worthy games to draft from on FanDuel and DraftKings.  Its been a great year, I personally took my Daily Fantasy Football  to another level with my player production value spreadsheets and cheat sheets. Based on the feedback I’ve gotten through email, G+ and twitter that many of you have as well, so lets keep it going into the playoffs!
The last week of the season is always one of the hardest to figure out.  This is exactly the reason no one likes their season long fantasy seasons to run this long.  Motivation is the key factor this week when selecting your starting fantasy lineup.  This is because many teams mathematically eliminated from the playoffs and others fighting hard to get in, this is why team motivation is a big factor when selecting daily fantasy players. 
For DFS purposes, I only like to use players from  teams that have something to play for.  This week Im not crazy about using any Patriots and Colts this week because there is nothing for them to play for.  Im also not a fan of teams that are completely out of it with nothing to play for.  I may consider division rivalry games where nothing is at stake such as the Giants and Eagles game.
What Teams Are Playing for What This Week?
Baltimore, Houston, San Diego, and Kansas City are all fighting for the 6th seed in the AFC. I would expect all of these teams to go all out.
Dallas has a chance for a Bye with a win.
