Prime DFS Picks: The Bills Can Earn You Super Bowl Tickets!

RotoExperts Staff October 19, 2017 10:01AM EDT
Here’s the drill to win Super Bowl tickets: Each week, FantasyDraft is having a free daily Fantasy contest for the weekend games. The winners of the tournament from Week 1 to Week 16 will face off in Week 17. The winner of that contest gets the tickets to the Super Bowl. It’s as simple as that.

You know how DFS works, so I’m not going to bore you with that. Let’s get into what makes Fantasy Draft unique:

  • There’s a $100,000 budget
  • Two flex spots
  • No kicker spot
  • PPR scoring

Let’s set that ideal lineup for you for Week 7

Super Bowl tickets

Quarterback

Top 3 choices

  1. Matt Ryan ($14,100) – I get it. Ryan has been frustrating to own, and you’re not getting anything close to what you got last year from Ryan. Even with regression baked in, he’s been a major disappointment. But, the good news is, Ryan and the Falcons are facing the terrible New England defense that has been money for opposing offenses all season. This is the week to get Ryan in your lineup.
  2. Dak Prescott ($13,700) – Coming off the bye with Ezekiel Elliott eligible to play, the Cowboys should lean on the run. However, what’s not being talked enough about is the way the Dallas’ line has regressed from last year. Prescott is a Top 5 quarterback going forward, and he’s a fine option this week, too.
  3. Tyrod Taylor ($10,100) – The only bad part about Taylor is that he doesn’t have explosive weapons at his disposal. Still, with a great matchup and a nice rushing floor, Taylor is a nice high-floor option to spend up at other places this week.

Sleeper: The New Orleans defense is one of my favorite value plays this week, but Brett Hundley ($10,200) has the weapons to succeed against what we still think is a weak defense.

Running Back

Top 4 choices

  1. LeSean McCoy ($14,000) – If I like Taylor this week, I have to like his weapons, right? Well, I do … at least with McCoy. Expect a heavy dose of targets out of the backfield.
  2. Tevin Coleman ($9,400) – We know the Patriots defense is horrible, and this has the makings of a shootout in a Super Bowl rematch. Expect Coleman to be involved in the passing game throughout.
  3. Javoris Allen ($10,000) – Buck Allen or Alex Collins? Alex Collins or Buck Allen? It’s been a back-and-forth conversation for the past two weeks. Game flow this week indicates that it’s going to be Allen getting the bulk of the workload.
  4. Doug Martin ($11,000) – The Buffalo defense has been tough on receivers all season. If Jameis Winston misses this game, the Bucs are going to run their offense through Martin.

Sleeper: Avoid all Patriots running backs is the mantra to live by, except James White ($9,800), who is the only one with a cemented role.

Wide Receivers

Top 4 choices

  1. Jarvis Landry ($12,700) – If DeVante Parker misses this week again, expect Landry to get his usual high number of targets, plus more.
  2. Demaryius Thomas ($11,000) – One thing I was encouraged with last week from Denver’s lackluster performance was how Thomas performed in a tough matchup. With no Emmanuel Sanders this week, Thomas is a nice play in DFS.
  3. Willie Snead ($7,800) – Snead is tough to trust, as he’s done nothing at all this year. However, slot receivers have feasted on the Green Bay defense all season. He’s a nice, cheap contrarian play.
  4. Robert Woods ($7,800) – If Patrick Peterson plays, Woods’ value goes away. However, in his past two games, he has 10 receptions for 136 yards. He returns value at this price.

Sleeper: If I like Taylor, I have to like his weapons. I think Brandon Tate ($7,000) has sneaky upside this week.

Tight End

Top 3 choices

  1. Evan Engram ($8,300) – As the de facto No. 1 receiving option until Sterling Shepard is healthy, expect the targets to continue for Engram.
  2. Jimmy Graham ($9,200) – Graham is another big name that has struggled this year, but you always start your tight ends against the Giants.
  3. Hunter Henry ($8,000) – After starting off the season with inconsistent targets, Henry has 15 targets in the last two weeks. Denver struggles with athletic tight ends.

Sleeper: Perhaps I’m taking the Buffalo love a little far, but Nick O’Leary ($6,000) could fill in nicely for Charles Clay.

Defense

Top 3 choices

  1. Carolina ($7,000) – It’s not Mike Glennon under center anymore, but the Bears offense still sucks
  2. New Orleans ($6,000) – Hell has frozen over. The Saints are a Top 10 defense this week.
  3. Buffalo ($6,700) – We can’t leave the Bills out of the defensive options now, can we?

Sleeper: The Giants ($5,000) are a sneaky play this week. We saw what they did against Denver. Russell Wilson and the Seattle offense have struggled all season long.
