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 171.3 as of Friday morning and FanDuel to be 144.8. 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.

Kick start your lineup for this weekend and use our Big Play Potential custom metric in order to determine who is most likely to have a play over 50 yards. In reviewing our top 5 and our Big Play Potential, you should consider Big Ben with a 71.7% chance of a Big Play and Antonio Brown with a 16.1% chance of a Big Play and the #2 ranked WR coming into this week. Some other key notables would be Shady McCoy at a 17.2% of a Big Play while moving up to #7 rank. Last we have AJ Green and Julio Jones both with top projections at the WR position this week and a 32.4% chance of a big play for Green, these guys should make your list in some capacity. How can you get all of these guys one might ask, here are some extremely low salary players that should see significant increase in workload this weekend with top matchups this week. 1st we have David Johnson for Arizona with a salary of only $3,400 on DraftKings. He is averaging just under 10 FPPG but when given the chance to carry the ball more frequently, he puts it in the end zone with the Rams ranked 21st against the RB1 position this season. At the WR position, a high risk, high reward guy to consider would be DeVante Parker for the Dolphins with a salary of $3,300. He should see at least 9 targets in this game with Matthews not expected to play and Stills be locked at the WR3, it’s boom or bust here.
Last you get your $2,500 TE of Scott Chandler. The Patriots are #2 with pass plays with two TE sets and given that Gronkowski is expected to sit this one out and the Eagles coming into town after giving up 5 TD passes in their last two games to Winston and Stafford, look for Brady to find Chandler early and often. Check out the sneak peak here of some lineups to consider.
