Winning DraftKings Lineup


Daily Fantasy football contests are now available. Yahoo Sports is starting things off with a $1 Million Kickoff contest. For a $10 entry fee, players can win up to $100,000 for first place.

Lets take a look a a few games I really love this week:

Atlanta at New Orleans – Atlanta has been playing very well as of late, but with Jones on a pitch count and Hankerson iffy, the only guy I like this week is Freeman.  Freeman has been putting up big time numbers.  For the salary and the extra touches Im expecting him to get, he makes a great play this week.

Denver at Cleveland – Everybody seems to run on the Browns, but with Joe Haden out, I think Demarious Thomas’ stock will go up.   I like DT, Sanders and C.J. Anderson this week.  Anderson got most of the touches last week, so I would expect that trend to continue. Denvers defense is in play this week as well.

Houston at Jacksonville –  This game has many guys that have been putting up nice fantasy numbers, so you would think it would be a higher scoring game,  For the Texans I like Hopkins, Hoyer and Foster.  Hopkins gets double digit targets and fantasy numbers every week. Hoyer, who has also put up nice fantasy number and even had a decent number of attempts with Foster in there against a Jaguars defense that gives up a lot of fantasy points to offenses and Arian Foster who can run all over the Jags and even catches double digit passes out of the backfield which really helps if you play PPR leagues like DraftKings.  For Jacksonville, I like Robinson and Hurns this week.  Both have been seeing a lot of targets and putting up double digit fantasy numbers the last few weeks and last week the Texans defense got torched by Matt Haselbeck.

Redskins at New York Jets –  The Jets have been playing really well.  The Redskins will probably see a heavy dose of Ivory this week, but with their beat up secondary, I would expect Marshall and Decker to have a pretty good day too.  The Redskins will be without DeSaun Jackson and I would expect Pierre Garcon to be covered by Revis, so I would expect the Jets defense to do very well especially at their price point on FanDuel and DraftKings $3100. Oh BTW the Redskins give up the most fantasy points to opposing defense.

New England at Indianapolis  –I generally try to avoid jumping on players everyone will be all over, but in this case Ill bet the Patriots are going to come out firing, and keep their foot on the gas!   Start Tom Brady, New England (Draftkings $8100), Gronk, Edelman and Lewis.

New York Giants at Philadelphia  –  I think this one may be a high scoring game since both defenses cant seem to stop anyone.  Last week  Kaepernick threw all over the Giants and this week should be no different with Prince being out.  Bradford is starting to put things together so Im expecting him and Eli to be in a shootout.  Bradfords price on both DraftKings and FanDuel is great for a GPP play.  I like Jordan Mathews for both cash games on GPP’s.

For the Giants, I like Eli for both cash and GPP, but for a sneaky GPP play, I likeLarry Donnell, $2900 on DraftKings, and Harris even if Beckham and Randle suit up for the Giants. If by some chance one or both are out, I love them.
