DraftKings Strategy Week 8: Best Buy and Over Priced Quarterbacks
This week there’s $2.5 MILLION DOLLARS up for grabs with $1,000,000 going to first place, that’s ONE MILLION for those of you having trouble counting all those zeroes.
The Top 15,000 people will cash in which is 1 out of every 6 players. The odds are in your favor and it’s time to buy that Ferrari you’ve been dreaming about.
We are giving you a FREE entry to this contest.
Below you’ll find Over-Priced and Best Buys for QBs, RBs, WRs, and TEs. These are purely my suggestion as to which players come at a reasonable or unreasonable price based on their projected production. Some of them I don’t like based on match-ups while others I love the match-ups but don’t like the price.
It’s important to note you don’t want to ONLY use the Best Buy Players, this is simply a way to find some “sleepers” to fill your lineup. We still suggest going after studs especially at RB1 and WR1.
Best Buy Quarterbacks:
Tony Romo $7,400 vs. Redskins: Romo and the Cowboys LOVE the spotlight which will be shining bright on them for Monday Night Football. The match-up is great with the Redskins allowing the 5th most points to opposing QBs.
Tom Brady $7,200 vs. Bears: Ryan Tannehill torched the Chicago Defense last week and Brady’s been on a roll with 9 TDs in his last 3 games.
Ryan Tannehil $6,700 vs. Jaguars: Three straight weeks with 2 TDs and two out of three weeks with over 275 yards.
ABSOLUTE STEAL: Nick Foles $6,300 vs. Cardinals: Fresh off the bye, Philly and Foles will travel to Arizona. The Cardinals have given up an average of 22 fantasy points to opposing QBs the last 3 games.
BIG RISK SMALL PRICE: Teddy Bridgewater $5,100 vs. Buccaneers: The 2nd cheapest starting QB on all of DraftKings his insanely low price is only matched by your insanity to use him in your lineup. That being said, the Bucs boast the 2nd worst passing defense in the league and have allowed QBs to throw two or more TDs in their last four games.
Over Priced Quarterbacks:
Drew Brees, $8,100 vs. Packers: Seems reputation is carrying Brees to the 4th highest priced QB for Week 8. Jimmy Graham is still limited and even though the game is in the Super Dome, Brees has yet to score over 25 fantasy points (which is the average of all QBs priced in the Top 5).
Jay Cutler $7,000 vs. Patriots: Forget the locker-room drama with the Bears and just focus on the field stuff that matters, which is the fact Cutler has thrown just 1 TD in each of his last two games and hasn’t thrown more than 2 TDs in one game since Week 2.
Mike Glennon $6,400 vs. Vikings: The past three games Glennon was priced at $5,900, $5,500, and $5,900… Why the sudden jump into the mid- $6k? No idea, but it’s certainly not something from his performances on the field. He has three straight games with 2 TDs and 1 INT.
