What a beautiful thing to see Randall Cobb ($7,400) priced exactly where he was last week. I continue to say this, Randall Cobb is getting healthier every week and it feels like he is going to continue to go nuts. He destroyed the Chiefs secondary for 35.3 DraftKings points (7-91-3). He’s been playing hurt and still putting up big numbers from the Packers. I think the Niners might be the league’s worst team, and they are surrendering a massive 40.93 DraftKings points per game this season including 57 and 48 in the L2. You can certainly believe that Aaron Rodgers should have no trouble picking this defense apart.
Keenan Allen ($7,000) is an enigma. He was the 2nd highest scoring WR in Week 1 (34.6) and the 4th highest scoring WR in Week 3 (40.3). However, in-between he laid an egg and scored 2.6 points. Which Keenan Allen will you get this week? I am optimistic for Allen this week. Antonio Gates is still out so the targets should continue to be there for Allen. The Browns just got shredded through the air for 314 yards by Derek Carr. It’s hard to believe that the league’s 4th most effective QB (Rivers) won’t have the same success.
We talked about Mike Evans ($6,400) last week and he did not disappoint. Despite not finding the endzone, Evans scored 20.1 DraftKings points on 7 catches for 101 yards. The awesome fact here is that Jameis Winston targeted Evans a massive 17 times! That’s a great sign moving forward that Winston can rely heavily on Evans considering the other 5 pass catchers for the Bucs saw a total of 18 targets. Considering the Bucs will certainly be underdogs in many of their games, expect Winston to be dropping back a ton this season.
CHOO CHOO!! All aborard the Donte Moncreif ($5,000) train. Let’s face it, the Colts have not been good. Despite their struggles, Moncreif is averaging 19.3 DraftKings points per game which ranks him 16th amongst all WRs. I feel like there is plenty of room for improvement if this offense can get back to the prolific rate we saw last season. I am not too concerned about Moncrief losing targets to Andre Johnson. Johnson only saw 1 target last week from Luck while Moncrief has now seen 25 on the season, only one less than TY Hilton. If any team can help get the Colts trending in the right direction, it has to be the Jaguars!
My man, Rishard Matthews ($4,400) is having a breakout season and no one seems to notice. We talked about him last week and he went nuts for 32 DK points after catching 6 balls for 113 yards and two TDs. He is now averaging 22.1 DraftKings points per game and has been the top value across all positions this season, returning 6.71x his value for the entire season. I would imagine that Matthews avoids being stuck on Revis Island this week so continue to fire up Matthews. Remember this game is being played in London and starts early on Sunday!
