Hey guys I’m back for the second time this week, to give out my favorite FanDuel and Draft Kings value plays for week 3 in the NFL. The first article started off with a bang. The plays last week included Marcus Mariota who provided us with two touchdowns, also included were the pair of San Diego WRs Williams and Benjamin, and Dennis Pitta. I’d say that’s coming out of the gates firing, and I look to do that again this week.

TENN – Marcus Mariota ($5900 DK) ($7700 FD) – As you see the real value for Mariota is on Draft Kings but is still priced as the 11th QB on FanDuel. Mariota gets a great match up at home to a defense coming into this year we thought would be one of the league’s best. So far that statement couldn’t be further from the truth, as the Raiders have given up back to back 30 point games. Mariota has a very real shot this weekend at scoring 3 touchdowns, plus I love the stack possibilities with Sharpe and Walker.
*Honorable Mention for FD* KC – Alex smith ($6800) – Duel Threat, ownership %, and playing a defense that has been getting torched recently in the passing game. Also, Smith showed is 300yd potential against the Chargers in week one.
This position is filled with value plays this weekend, but none of the value plays are in a great spot. Plus their ownership is bound to be high this week. I’m going to avoid giving out the obvious plays, instead I’ll give out a running back that is mid-priced that I think will go low-owned and will produce big points.
CLE – Isaiah Crowell ($4700 DK) ($6900 FD) – The number one stat we look for when selecting a running back is volume, and that’s exactly what we get from Crowell. Duke Johnson was the darling in the offseason but with a new coach, Hue Jackson is relying heavy on Crowell. Crowell has 30 carries for nearly 200 yards, along with a touchdown in each game. His price on DK is a great pivot point from a few of the chalky plays who are hovering around that mark.
SEA – Christine Michael ($5000 DK) ($6900 FD) – Thomas Rawls looks to still be dealing with an injury and is set to miss the match up this week at home against the 49ers. Michael’s volume has a been a bit up and down to start the year, but when given the opportunity has produced. In his first two games he is averaging over 5 YPC and 4 targets a game. I love him in this spot as a home favorite against the weak 49ers defense.
IND – Phillip Dorsett ($4,400 DK) ($6000 FD) – Dorsett has been getting the volume even with the full complement of WRs. He has seen 11 targets on the year, and posted a 4 catch 94 yard game in Week one. I love the thought of having a WR who will see a possibly 8+ targets in a fast paced up tempo game at this price.
ATL – Mohammed Sanu ($5700 DK) ($6500 FD) *MON NIGHT* – This will be the forgotten man, in what could easily be the highest scoring game on the slate. Vegas has the total set to 50+, and it takes place in the superdome where defenses arent allowed. Sanu had a great first week one with 5 receptions for 80 yards and a touchdown. Last week he was the third passing option behind Julio Jones and Jacob Tamme, which calls for low ownership of a great player in a great spot. Snead is looking questionable, so if im playing the Sun – Mon slate, im looking to pivot off of snead and roll with Sanu
OAK – Clive Walford ($2800 DK) ($4500 FD) – This is strictly a tournament play, Walford is off to a great start this year and will be low owned almost every week. Most people will flock to Cooper and Crabtree to get exposure to the Raiders passing attack, leaving Walford under owned. He is receiving on average 6 targets a game, and has TD. This game has the potential to be a back and forth shootout.
