At The DiRT Canon, our matchups not only consider what the player’s opponent has given up to a position, we go all the way down to the depth chart position for that player and what that defense has given up to that position. We also consider, this information for the current season and ever in the past along with incorporating home or away. We have then added our own personal flavor where we don’t bother providing you with players that aren’t going to play or are basically irrelevant so we have established a custom figure of projection for each position that we also filter by. What does this mean? It means that we aren’t going to tell you some third string guys whom have the lowest opponent value for the week but instead we are looking to display players that are expected to at least get you the minimum amount of points needed from that position in order to #Win.

Not unlike last week, we don’t have a ton of top tiered players, playing bottom tiered defenses this week but DC*3PO does project a higher average score over last week. This week, DC*3PO has a projected minimum winning score on DraftKings to be 156.8 as of Friday morning and FanDuel to be 138.4. That said, there are some key players that I want to provide some insight and information for you as I look to kick start your lineups for this weekend. After that, use the detailed custom metric creation reports, such as Big Play Potential and Projection2Spend in order to build your lineup. Last, why not check our Lineup Analyzer™ and see if there are any players you should be considering. Just click here, and then you can pick from FanDuel or DraftKings thereafter. Please note, we have a FREE TRIAL, which is a 7 day trial, that cost you nothing. Enter promo code WIN for additional savings on your full membership.
Kick start your lineup with our top 2 RB’s for this week and those are DeVonta Freeman and Adrian Peterson. I like both matchups for these players as they are both projected to be at least 20 fantasy points on DraftKings this weekend. Combine them with Charcandrick West in the Flex position and now you have the building blocks for a winning lineup. Moving onto the WR position, let’s just say if you don’t have Danny Amendola this weekend, you will probably regret it but on Sunday you won’t notice, it will be when the rest of the field laps you on Monday night as Amendola is projected to get 21.4 points when look at our Injury Breakdown analysis here. You should know that our standard projections do not consider injury related information as we have a separate injury projection and impacted player projection in this analysis. So if you are looking for the impact of an injury, be sure to check that out. Last do you want a #Sleeper TE that we predict less than 5% ownership on both FanDuel and DraftKings and that is Ebron for Detroit. While the Raiders defense has been better against the TE over the past 3 weeks, that is largely due to the TE’s they were playing against and Heath Miller did have a 10 catch performance against them 2 weeks ago. Ebron is only $3,500 this week and slating him at the TE position will allow for you to afford those RB’s as well as a Julio Jones or DeAndre Hopkins. Another high end WR to consider this weekend is Dez Bryant. No math will predict him in the top 10 but with Romo coming back and the Dolphins week secondary on the docket, this could prove to be a Dez Bryant coming out party as Dallas looks to make a final push and see if they can get back into the divisional race.
