Week 8 Top Daily Fantasy Fantasy DraftKings Value Plays : Stafford, Stewart

Week 8 Top Daily Fantasy Fantasy DraftKings Value Plays : Stafford, Stewart

Fantasy Football

As always, we are looking for those players that will help save you money at each position while providing you with some upside.  Based on the projections from expert sites and our analysis of a players match listed this week on the Salary Cap Crusher numbers here are some good buys.

Play against us on DraftKings with GPP games starting at just $.25 cents

Top Quarterback Value Plays

Cam Newton  – Great matchup this week against a weak Colts defense, Newton has one of the best CPP for a QB this week at $331 on DraftKings and $390 on FanDuel which is very good as well.

Russell Wilson – With a CPP of $316 Russell had the lowest CPP for QB’s based on an average projection of just 17 fantasy points.

Joe Flacco $5,500 –  Not a favorite among fantasy football players, but should have to throw a lot against the chargers who have been getting beat in the secondary.  At a price of $5,500 on DraftKings, Flaccos value is great and will allow you to fit a number of other studs in your lineup.  Flacco’s average projection is 18 fantasy points, but I can see him breaking 20 FPTS this week.

Mathew Stafford  $5,800 – This is one on my contrarian plays in GPP tournaments this week.  Stafford has fell out of favor this yea along with Calvin Johnson, but has put 2 good weeks together lately and now has a great matchup against a Kansas City defense that gives up the most fantasy points to wide receivers.

Top Running Back Value Plays

Todd Gurley – Every DFS play should be on Gurley this week on both DraftKings and FanDuel.  His DrafKings Salary is just $6,300 with an average projection of 16 points giving him a $417 cost per point providing great value.  Playing the 49ers this week and looking at the Vegas lines, Gurley should have a very good day.  Check out his FanDuel salary.

Jonathan Stewart $4,100 – The experts have him at just 9 fpts this week, but with that weak colts run defense I can see him blowing that away and being a great value even if its just for a FLEX option on DraftKings this week.   Based on the 9 point projection his CPP is $460.

Sneaky GPP Plays

Khiry Robinson  –  Playing the Giants this week and scoring decent fantasy points for a guy in a three  way time share, Khiry provides a sneaky low cost option to get other studs like Julio Jones and Gronk into your lineup.
Anton Andrews $3,300 – At just 5 points projected, his own coach said he deserves more touches this week which should help lower his $429 CPP this week on DraftKings.


Top Wide Receiver Value Plays

Calvin Johnson – Playing the worst fantasy D against WR’s, Johnson should be lightly used giving you an edge in your GPP tournaments this week.  His number based on his salary of $7,900 and his projection of just 10 points is expensive, but if you are like me and think he can score 15 fpts, you will definitely consider him a better value.

Brandon Cooks –  Cooks has been kind of a let down this year not really having a break out game, but he has a lot of good matchups.  This week against the Giants the experts project 10 fpts for  him, which is in line with what he usually scores.  If he can score fantasy owners a TD this week I can see his $552 CPP dropping to $337 based on his $5,400 DraftKings salary.  This is the type of upside we find for our members of Salary Cap Crusher.

Top Tight End Value Plays

Tyler Eifert – Based on his projection Eifert is not a value you play, but the Steelers have been the worst defense at covering the TE, just see what Gates and Gronk did to them.  Expert Eifert to be his 10pts projection making him a great value on DraftKings at his $5,300 salary.

Delanie Walker $4,100 –  Houston has been getting beat up the last few weeks.  This is a great matchup for Walker.  If he can find the endzone this week, he will provide a great value to DFS players who drafted him.

Top Defense Value Plays

Rams – A great matchup against the 49ers who may be without Carlos Hyde this week.  At just 10 fpts they provide the best CPP for a defense at $321 and their $3,200 Salary on DraftKings for week 8.

Panthers –  Andrew Luck has been very unlucky this season.  Fantasy defenses have been feasting on the Colts this year and the Pathers secondary has actually been playing very week against fantasy WR’s this year.

Win at FanDuel & DraftKings – How I Did Last Week in Daily Fantasy Football

NFL Daily Fantasy

FanDuel vs DraftKingsWell week one of the playoffs was interesting.  On FanDuel I found myself in a position to either win it all or more likely finish in the top five.

Going into the last game between the Cowboys and Lions I was 26 points out of first place.  Most of the people ahead of me had no players left, a few that were 10 points ahead of me, had Jason Witten going  and still had Calvin Johnson left!  I actually had Antonio Brown AND Calvin Johnson in the same lineup.

Unfortunately I didn’t get a typical Calvin day or I would have placed in the top five of the pool.

On DraftKings however, I was in a contest with 47,000 teams and placed 173th!  Believe it or not I WAS ONLY 17 points out of First Place!  I got big games out of Luck, Heron, Brown, Bryant, and Tate.

This week I will be at it again.  I will go into a player break down in my next post, but I want to mention some very cool contests you should enter on both FanDuel and DraftKings.

With that being said, lets take a look at the DraftKings pricing. I hope this Week 14 Fantasy Football Player Picks Advice helps you win some money this weekend! Shoot me any questions or comments.

Steelers @ Bengals (47)

Pittsburgh Steelers

Ben Roethlisberger($8200)
His price has gone up so much that its just below the elite QBs in the NFL which makes me want to stay away from Big Ben. The Bengals pass defense has gotten better the last few weeks as well.

LeVeon Bell ($9400)
Bell has been safe bet every week, but his price is pretty high. The Bengals have gotten healthy but they can still be run on. If you can fit him in your lineup start him.  I wont be as I will find a cheaper option.


Cincinnati Bengals

Jeremy Hill ($5400) & Giovani Bernard ($5300)
I’ll be fading these guys tis week, mainly because of the time share, but I’d prefer Hill, if I had to start one.

AJ Green ($8200)
The Steelers secondary has been beatable all year.  Dalton has targeted Green 24 times in the last two weeks and with Dalton being better at home I really like Green this week.

DRAFTKINGS Player Advice and Cheat Sheet


I did game by game breakdowns in my FanDuel Strategy Advice column, so I’m going to just highlight the players to target, their DraftKings price and my thoughts and strategy on which players you should target for your DraftKings Lineup.


Cleveland Browns @ Atlanta Falcons (o/u 47)

Cleveland Browns

Josh Gordon ($6300)
Everyone has Gordon fever, so I expect him to be VERY highly owned. Gordon has an amazing matchup going against the Falcons, who’ve allowed 4 TDs in the last five games to WR1s.

Andrew Hawkins ($4900)
Hawkins is the player who’s value could be effected most by the return of Josh Gordon. I don’t think the Browns throw enough for both guys to really produce, but who knows, maybe they will throw the ball now with Gordon back.  I still think he could do well with softer coverage with Gordon back.

Brian Hoyer ($5900)
Hoyer is a very interesting play this week between Gordon coming back and his price tag. He has a great matchup against a poor Atlanta defense.   I’m Stacking Hoyer and Gordon in at least one lineup this week.

Isaiah Crowell ($3800)
With the release of Ben Tate and Crowell being named the starter last week, Crowell becomes an interesting play this week for the price. Atlanta is 24th against the run and I should get the majority of the carries.
