Hey everyone I’m back for the second time this week with my value plays for DraftKings and Fanduel for week 2 of the NFL. The format of two articles per week, will be the norm from here on out. The purpose of this article is to provide players I think are under priced due to their recent performances, injuries, or the match up. I will also occasionally throw in a player who may not necessarily be cheap, but will be a player I think has tremendous upside, and whose ownership will be low making him a contrarian tournament play. Let’s get into the week 2 value plays.

Tenn – Marcus Mariota – $(6,000 DK) (7,500 FD) – Mariota gets a great match up this week against the fast paced Detroit Lions. The Lions gave up nearly 400 yards and 4 TDS last week to Andrew Luck, now I don’t expect that type of performance from Mariota this week. I do expect him to have 3TD potential, and one of those could always come on the ground. Also the Lions are favored by 6, which means the titans should be playing catch up.
CHI – Jeremy Langford *MON NIGHT* – $(4700 DK) (6500 FD) – Gets to play the dreadful Eagles defense who just allowed over 5.0 YPC to the Browns. Langford is priced entirely too cheap for a 3 down workhorse back at home against a dreadful defense. Last time Langford played on Monday night he torched the Chargers defense for 140 total yards and a touchdown.
SD – Tyrell Williams – $(3700 DK) (5400 FD) – This will be one of the more popular value plays of the week along with Travis Benjamin and for good reason. Tyrell is 6’4 and ran a sub 4.4 40 yard dash, so he has all the measurable to be a deep threat and red zone threat. Once Keenan Allen went out Williams saw 5 targets, caught 2 balls for 71 yards. The Chargers love letting Philip Rivers dictate the outcome of their games, which means throw throw throw!
PITT – Jesse James – $(3400 DK) (4500 FD) – There are certain offenses you want exposure too, and the Steelers are one of those teams. Big Ben loves his tight ends in the red zone, and targeted James twice last game, along with another 5 targets throughout the game. The volume is there for James, and last year the Bengals allowed the second most receptions to tight ends last year, with a little over 6 a game.
