NFL Fantasy Football Week 3 Value Plays
Hey guys, back once again but this time to cover some value plays for your Week 3 DFS Contests. These are the NFL Fantasy Football players you can use as Salary Relief but can expect to hit pass value at the same time! So lets dive into it and good luck!
Salary – Draftkings: $5,100 | Fanduel: $6,800
Not off to a promising start, the Dallas Cowboys offense is something to be concerned about but this week we should see a bright spot finally. Facing the Seattle Seahawks, Dak Prescott should be on an upward trend. Facing the Carolina Panthers in Week 1, the 7th ranked defense in the passing game, Prescott put up 9.7 points and then in Week 2, Prescott put up 14.9 points against the New York Giants who are ranked 2nd in defense against the pass. Doubling his points against a much stronger defense is always a positive that we look for.
The Seattle Seahawks are giving up on average, 254 yards through the air with a much different looked defense. The Seahawks allowed Case Keenum to throw for 329 yards with 3 touchdowns and 3 interceptions in Week 1 and then allowed Mitchell Trubisky to throw for 200 yards with 2 touchdowns and 2 interceptions in Week 2. The one downside to playing Dak Prescott this week at a cheap price with high upside? The interceptions that the Seahawks are snagging and snagging at a very efficient rate. The price and value are there and it would help with salary relief but the interceptions may be a concern to also fade Prescott at the same time.
Salary – Draftkings: $4,600 | Fanduel: $6,400
Here is a value play that may go unnoticed due to the defense that he is facing. Phillip Lindsey and the Denver Broncos are facing the Baltimore Ravens who are ranked 15th in defending the rush with allowing on average of 95 yards per game. The Ravens shut down the Bills (what a shocker) in Week 1 and kept their running backs on lock, not allowing a single rusher over 50 yards or any rushing touchdowns. But in Week 2, the Cincinnati Bengals made the Ravens defense look somewhat normal. Joe Mixon rushed for 84 yards, averaging 4 yards per carry, before exiting with a knee injury and even Giovani Bernard was able to rush for 27 yards on 6 carries, bringing his average yards per carry to 4.5.
Lindsey did split half the carries with Royce Freeman in Week 1 where both rushers saw 15 carries and rushed for 71 yards each. In Week 2, Lindsey carried the workload, his 14 carries to Freeman’s 8 carries, for 107 yards but Freeman was the one that got the rushing touchdown. Lindsey’s workload should be around the same and going against a Ravens defense that allowed Mixon to rush for 84 yards, he should be able to crack the hundred yard mark once again. Plus being at a salary of $4,600 on Draftkings, you can still stack a RB1 with him and still expect a good weekend.
Salary – Draftking: $4,600 | Fanduel: $5,500
Probably one of the many choices of underrated season long Fantasy Football plays, Dede Westbrook has a good spot this weekend with the Tennessee Titans. A passing defense that has allowed 201 yards per game but has allowed three different receivers to scorch their defense. In Week 1, Kenny Stills put up 106 yards, 2 touchdowns off of 4 catches and in Week 2, both Will Fuller and DeAndre Hopkins broke 100 yards receiving with both seeing the end-zone. Westbrook won’t have to worry about the pressure and attention being on him with both Keelan Cole and Donte Moncrief being on the field with him in this offense.

He reeled in 5 passes for 51 yards in Week 1 against the 2nd ranked passing defense, New York Giants, and in Week 2, he reeled in 4 passes for 83 yards and a touchdown against the New England Patriots, the 23rd ranked defense in the passing game. Now Dede Westbrook gets the 20th ranked defense accompanied by a $4,600 salary tag, once again making it easy for him to be paired with another top Wide Receiver.
Salary: Draftkings: $4,800 | $6,200
John Brown may be the most hyped and owned value play heading into Week 3. Having a salary of $4,800, he’s on everyone’s radar. He’ll be facing the Denver Broncos, a defense that has given up on average, 261 yards through the air so far this season. In Week 1, the Seattle Seahawks had 3 different receivers see the end-zone but only Will Dissly breaking the hundred yard mark. In their Week 2 match-up against the Oakland Raiders, the Broncos allowed 1 receiving touchdown but only Amari Cooper broke the hundred yard mark with 116 yards off 10 receptions.
John Brown has seen the end-zone two weeks straight now in a Ravens offense that may have an identity issue at the Wide Receiver position but they are still getting the job done. Expect Brown to continue making the end-zone his home against the 21st ranked passing defense this weekend and most likely breaking the hundred yard receiving mark also.
