My week 2 value play WRs won me a bunch of money of @GoDraft. We have some more great options to share if you are picking a few spots to go cheap. My key in developing DFS lineups is to find those value plays that allow you to pay up for studs. Check out my other weekly article DFS5s where I give you 20 guys to play this week. These value plays allow you to pay for some of those 20 studs.
Value QB Plays
Nick Foles - GoDraft Price $10,900- If you read my DFS5s article you know I think this game with Pittsburgh will go to the 1st team to score 35 points. I think Foles can have a huge day and he might be stacked with the right guy to cash and grab a million dollars in the @GoDraft Million Dollar Weekly Freeroll. Foles spreads the ball around so pick your stack WR carefully but this game will go way over what Vegas is predicting.
Also consider: Tyrod Taylor $7,400
Value RB Plays
James Starks - GoDraft Price $4,850- Starks effectiveness is conditional at best so monitor Eddie Lacy this week and pounce if Lacy is out. Starks got 24 touches in Lacy’s absence last week vs Seattle and he is in a great spot if Lacy is out Monday night vs Kansas City.
Duke Johnson - GoDraft Price $7,400- At some point Cleveland is going to really give Johnson a chance to see what he can do. The game flow favored the RB last week and Johnson got 12 touches. Cleveland is a home favorite so game flow favors the home RB and Johnson could take advantage of this opportunity. It may be too early to see 20 touches but at this price I can project 10+ and he could easily pay off with a TD.
Also consider: Doug Martin $6,800, Chris Johnson $5,900, Devonta Freeman $7,300
Value WR Plays
Donte Moncrief - GoDraft Price $6,700- He was my top WR value last week and he didn’t go up in price enough for him to not be here again. Play him and cash. He went for 7 catches, 122 yards and a TD.
Stevie Johnson - GoDraft Price $5,700- After a solid week 1 that resulted in a score, Johnson followed that up with another 5 catches for a modest 45 yards and a TD. He plays the slot and is cheap. He with get the catches to pay off his price.
Rishard Matthews - GoDraft Price $4,600- It took me 2 weeks to realize Ryan Tannehill likes throwing to Rishard Matthews. Miami has a few guys banged up so Matthews has a good chance to get 10 targets and at this price that is a bargain if he does anything with them.
Also consider: John Brown $5,900, Cecil Shorts $7,600, Leonard Hankerson $5,700
Value TE Plays
Vernon Davis - GoDraft Price $4,000- Davis has 13 targets in 2 weeks. He is too cheap and he is a red zone target. If you are looking to save money this guy could get 10 targets in Arizona if the game script plays according to Vegas models and SF will be playing from behind early. Great spot for him at this price.
Also consider: Richard Rodgers $4,000
With these plays in mind you can fill out a solid lineup and fit in an extra stud or two depending on how you want to play it. I’d like to invite everyone to follow me on Twitter @shppirate12. @GoDraft has a FREEROLL for ONE MILLION DOLLARS so sign up and play.
