Week 2 DraftKings Picks

By Jared Smola 9:09am EDT 9/13/19


Week 1 was a reminder that we shouldn’t get too fancy at RB — even in tournaments.

Christian McCaffrey, Dalvin Cook, Chris Carson and Austin Ekeler were 4 of the most popular plays at the position.They all went off and were in tournament-winning lineups.

I had plenty of those guys in my tournament lineups.But I also tried to get cute with contrarian plays like Kerryon Johnson and Miles Sanders.

That didn’t work.

So going forward, I’ll be focusing on just playing the best plays at RB — regardless of projected ownership — and getting my differentiation at the other positions.

On to the Week 2 picks …


QB

Cash Cornerstone

Jared Goff, Rams ($5,900)

Goff had some serious home/road splits last season, so it didn’t come as a major surprise that he struggled in Carolina in Week 1.

Now he’s back at home, where he averaged 342 yards and 2.8 TDs per game last year.And he’ll find himself in a potential shootout against the Saints.The game sports a 52-point over/under — 2nd highest on the main slate.The Rams’ 27.25-point implied total is 4th highest.

New Orleans just coughed up 268 yards and 3 TDs to Deshaun Watson on a 67% completion rate and 8.9 yards per attempt.And in Goff’s 2 meetings with the Saints last year — both in New Orleans — he posted 391-3-1 and 297-1-1 passing lines.
