Cash wide receivers
Cole Beasley: FanDuel $5600, DraftKings $4100
He’s probably my favorite value play this week because he’s been playing well with Josh Allen this year so far and he’s incredibly cheap. We need that because of how priced up the running backs are and no really strong viable cheap quarterbacks this week. Also, it helps that wide receiver is generally somewhat weak this week in my opinion. Add all of that up, along with the fact they get to play the Redskins this week who, admittedly aren’t horrible on defense but are certainly looking to lose and can be beat in the passing game, and I think he’s a solid value.
Diontae Johnson: FanDuel $5000, DraftKings $4500
I’m a Steelers fan so you may want to take this suggestion with a pinch of skepticism but I think Johnson is really talented. He also displayed a solid relationship with Mason Rudolph this past week getting seven targets, which is a ton at minimum price on FanDuel. His price on DraftKings could certainly be lower so I don’t think I’m into it there as much but I’m a big fan on FanDuel. I think the Colts defense is good but a lot of the game plan for Pittsburgh will need to be adjusted based on whether they have any healthy running backs. Conner is hurt and Snell had knee surgery and Jaylen Samuels is coming off of injury.
Kenny Golladay: FanDuel $7600, DraftKings $7700
Finally, a play you can probably get a bit more comfortable with. Smooth jazz Kenny G has been a beast (when Stafford looks his way). As I said earlier in the write-up, Stafford will probably have to throw the ball more since it seems they don’t have a running back they trust with Kerryon out. Plus Oakland is pretty bad against the pass. If he can get his usual eight or nine targets a week he should crush value and I think this game turns out to be a sneaky high total (at least for Detroit).
