Quarterbacks - DraftKings Daily Fantasy Football Lineup Starts

Dak Prescott - DAL @ SF (DK $7,300)

Prescott has scored 17 or more DraftKings points in each game this season, including 22 or more in three straight. Prescott always makes a good option at quarterback, since he brings the dual threat potential to put one in on the ground, and with rushing touchdowns being worth more than passing ones, he has great upside. This Sunday he is at the 49ers, who have the 24th DVOA overall, and the 26th DVOA against the pass. This puts Prescott in a great spot to be able to rack up some fantasy points, in a game where the Cowboys have an implied team total of 26 points. Good in all formats this week.

Marcus Mariota - TEN @ CLE (DK $6,900)

Mariota came back last Monday night, and showed he is healthy, which makes him back in play as a good fantasy option. He is another quarterback, who has dual threat potential, and is able to put in a touchdown via the run games. Always nice to be able to get extra points, which should be easy this week, since he is up against the Browns, who have the 32 DVOA against the pass. The Browns have been a great team to pick on over the past few seasons, and this week is no different.

 

Running Backs - DraftKings Daily Fantasy Football Lineup Starts

Alvin Kamara - NO @ GB (DK $5,600)

With AP leaving the Saints, we saw last week an increased snap share for Kamara, and if that trend continues, he will be in play an week. Kamara finds himself up against the Packers this week, who have the 27th DVOA against running backs in the passing game. Kamara has shown to have plenty of upside catching the ball, as he has five or more targets in four of five weeks this season. He makes a good flex option this week on DraftKings, and is always viable for GPPs, with his lower price, and PPR potential.

LeSean McCoy - BUF vs TB (DK $7,400)

McCoy just seems a bit too cheap this week, and he should be a cash game lock for you lineups. He is at home against the Bucs who have the 31st DVOA overall, and have yet to show they can slow anyone down. We know McCoy is a big time volume player, which is great to see in the fantasy world. He has 19 or more carries in two straight games, along with six or more targets in four of five games this season. Love his PPR potential coming out of the backfield, and with no truly strong receiving options for the Bills, McCoy should see plenty of work.

 

Wide Receivers - DraftKings Daily Fantasy Football Lineup Starts

Adam Thielen - MIN vs BAL (DK $6,700)

Thielen is at home this week and has a tough match up in front of him, but still in a spot to succeed. With the injury news surrounding Stefon Diggs, Theilen stands to gain from his absence for a second straight week. Thielen saw 13 targets last week for nine receptions and 93 yards. We should be seeing that same level of production if Diggs is out for the second straight week. He is going against the Ravens who have the 2nd DOVA against the pass, but the volume of work should still be there for him to hit value.

John Brown - ARI @ LAR (DK $4,900)

Take note, this game is taking place in London. If you are looking for a cheaper option at wide receiver, who still has touchdown potential, then Brown might be the call. He is up against the Rams, who have the 17th DVOA against WR2. Brown has seen seven or more targets in three of the last four weeks, and has seemingly cemented himself as the number two receiver. It also helps that Carson Plamer, is looking better over the past few weeks, which puts Brown in a betters spot.

 

Tight Ends - DraftKings Daily Fantasy Football Lineup Starts

Hunter Henry - LAC vs DEN (DK $4,200)

Henry played on 83% of the snaps last week, and is showing that the changing of the guard is happening for the Chargers. Old man Gates is done for, and Henry is showing how much skill he has. Although he is going up against the Denver defense, they struggle a bit vs tight ends, as they have the 30th DVOA against them. Henry has seven or more targets in two straight games, and is a bit cheaper compared to some of the top tight ends.

 

Defense - DraftKings Daily Fantasy Football Lineup Start

New York Jets at Miami Dolphins (DK $3,000)

Any time there is a defense going against Jay Culter, they have my interest. Just a few weeks ago, we saw this exact match up, where the Jets held Miami to only six points, and they two interceptions, along with three sacks. Really put the pressure on Cutler, and with him being so turnover prone, there is nothing to not like about this match up. The Jets aren't that expensive, so if you don't like to spend up, then this is the spot for you.
