Here are the guys I’m considering for DraftKings Week 2 head-to-heads and 50/50s:
Josh Allen ($7,900) leads our dollars-per-point rankings and is an awesome play in an obvious bounce-back spot at home for the Raiders.
But as I’ve worked on building my cash lineup this week, I’ve often landed on Richardson for the $1,600 savings.
The rookie scored 21.9 DraftKings points in his debut last week.
He gave us the rushing: 10 carries for 41 yards and a score.
But he also threw 37 passes in an Indianapolis offense that was fast-paced and pass-leaning. The Colts ranked fifth in neutral pass and 12th in Pass Rate Over Expected. They aren’t babying Richardson.
With big rushing upside and stronger-than-expected passing volume, Richardson supplies a high floor at this price tag.
The Texans will be without both of their starting safeties on Sunday.
