Absolute Must Have
We are now entering the final week of the second quarter of the season and we now have some established players that should be considered each week in daily fantasy. Obviously, Tom Brady tops this list and he does have our highest Must Have selection of the week but considering most of you don’t include the Thursday game player’s in your contest selections, our Absolute Must Have for this week on DraftKings is DeAndre Hopkins. He comes in with a projection of 22.13 this week and off an unusually low performance last week as most of the balls went to Washington in garbage time, look for this to change back to having Hopkins be the man in Houston again. On the FanDuel side, we have Joe Flacco. His projection for this week is 23.56 with a plus 6.91 in the Projection2Spend ratio, which means he is high value and should outperform his cost for this week. Did you know that San Diego has given up at least 25 fantasy points to their opposing QB in each of their last 3 games? You should consider him for this week.
***Reminder Must Have’s are salaries that are $7,800 and higher
Our Absolute #Notable for this week on FanDuel is Josh McCown. He comes in with a projection of 18.62 for this week and is still on the extremely cheap side. That said, he did leave the game with an injury last week so his status for this week is questionable. You should check back on Sunday morning and come to our Injury Breakdown section here for all of your injury and impacted player analysis. On the DraftKings side of the house, we have Steve Smith Sr. He actually comes in as our top projected player for this week, largely due to San Diego giving up a ton to the WR1 position lately. Additionally, Smith Sr., had 186 yards and 2 touchdowns in his only home game this season. His projection of 31 should not be taken too lightly, as he should light up the Bolts this weekend.
***Reminder Notables are salaries between $5,200 and $7,800
For FanDuel our Absolute #Sleeper this week is Conner Barth, with a projection of 14.83. He is the kicker to have for the week, just keep in mind that the Falcons defense is keeping opponents out of the end zone this season so look for some field goal opportunities here.
For DraftKings we have Josh McCown, coming in with a projection of 18.22. We have already stated that McCown is hurt so be careful here. If you want to know my personal opinion, I’m all over Chris Johnson this week. He is the leading back for the Cardinals and they get to play against the worst run defense in the league, Cleveland, this week. Look for him to have a huge day and he only costs $4,600. Another player to consider is Stephon Diggs for Minnesota. We had him again last week and all he did was get us 26.7 points, his price tag only jumped up $600 to a total of $4,800 this week, he is almost a must play.
***Reminder that Sleepers are salaries under $5,200
