Week 13 - DFS Cheat Codes
Happy belated thanksgiving. Last week we had a top 12 tight end and a painful to watch, but good fantasy performance from Ryan Fitzpatrick. This week, I am going to break down my top value plays at each position you can pay up for DJ Chark and Davante Adam this week.
Andy Dalton vs New York (Jets) – He’s $4200 in his first game back, against a team who is very friendly in terms of fantasy points to the QB (Gregg Williams isn’t so friendly otherwise). Still no A.J. Green for Dalton, and the offensive line is still awful, but I expect Dalton to hit value this week. Vegas has the over under for this game at 41.5 so there’s points to be had. I wouldn’t expect a smash performance with this information, just a standard performance for dirt cheap this week.
Jonathan Williams vs Tennessee – The Titans are top 12 allowed in points to the running back. If there was ever a week to cheap out at RB to pay up for receivers this is it. Williams has a DK price point of $5300, hitting a $1500 differential to his true value. He had 26 carries against the Texans in week 12 and should that workload again, in a better match up. Williams is a lock in line ups this weekend.
Auden Tate vs New York (Jets) – Brian Poole is currently only allowing 9.9 FPPG to Slot Receivers. With Tyler Boyd expected to see him in coverage, Dalton will need to look to Auden Tate. Tate is $3800 dollars, making a Dalton + Tate stack $8500, cheaper than Tyreek Hill’s DK price alone. With Dalton, Tate has 3 games with over 10 targets and 30% of his targets this season have come in the red zone. Tate has a big week coming and in a must win game for Andy Dalton to prove something, I think we see it this weekend.
Greg Olsen vs Washington – The tight end position is simple to get right. Look at the match ups, find the best cheap option with a good match up, and pray you got it right this week. I think Olsen has the best chance at a value game being only $4400. Washington has allowed a touch down to the position in almost 50% of their games this year. The Panthers are in a must win game this week being at .500 and to do that they’ll need to get all the pass catchers for Kyle Allen involved and I expect a great game from Olsen this week.
