Prices come from

Three Players To Play-

  1. David Johnson: Arizona Cardinals ($5,700)

I have Johnson ranked second among all running backs this week, so, with a price tag of $5,700, Draftkings is practically begging you to play him. His opponent is the Eagles, who rank 28th against the run. The Cardinals’ offense is among the best NFL, and matching up against the atrocious Eagles’ defense only adds value to all of the offensive skill players on Arizona.

With Chris Johnson on injured reserve and Andre Ellington likely out again this week, David Johnson will be the bell cow back again this week. Since taking over as the bell cow back, Johnson has averaged about 18 DraftKings’ point per game.


  1. Odell Beckham JR.: New York Giants ($9,200)

Don’t be afraid of the matchup in this one. Yes, Beckham will be matched up against Josh Norman, who has been one the best cornerbacks in the league this season, but nonetheless, Beckham is on fire. He has six consecutive games of more than 100 receiving yards. He is number one in fantasy points among all wide receivers this season. Beckham is on fire and he has the potential to be the difference between winning and losing money on Sunday.

Norman will be the primary cornerback covering him, but like many elite cornerbacks, Norman does not shadow one specific receiver. He sticks to the outside. According to Giants’ coach Tom Coughlin, Beckham will see “a significant amount of time in the slot” on Sunday.

I expect this game to be a high scoring shootout. With a high chance to score, Beckham is an absolute must play in DFS this weekend.


  1. Julio Jones: Atlanta Falcons ($8,500)

The entire Falcons offense, including Jones, has been a disappointment over the last few months. Jones hasn’t scored a touchdown since week 8, and his quarterback, Matt Ryan, hasn’t thrown multiple touchdowns in a game since week 11.

With all that said, I think Jones is in line for an outstanding fantasy game this week. His opponent is the Jaguars, who have been atrocious on defense at times this season. I guarantee this game will be a shootout. Opposing wide receivers have had career games this season against the Jaguars, and a guy as talented as Julio Jones has the same if not a better chance to have one of those career games this Sunday.
