Week 2 DraftKings Tournament Picks

By Jared Smola 9:09am EDT 9/18/20


QBs

Mitch Trubisky ($5,500)

Trubisky was solid in Week 1, with 242 yards passing, 3 TDs and 26 yards rushing against the Lions. I generally like to pay down at the QB position on DK and Trubisky is basically the cheapest starting QB other than Tyrod Taylor (not enough upside), Drew Lock (in a miserable matchup) and Ryan Fitzpatrick (banged up WRs and bad matchup).

Trubisky offers rushing upside with 20+ yards in 4 of his past 5 games; has solid weapons with Allen Robinson and Anthony Miller; and gets an excellent matchup against a Giants defense that struggles to generate any pressure and has a weak secondary that was torched for 3 TDs by Big Ben in Week 1.

I will be looking to play Trubisky in at least 10% of my DraftKings lineups to triple the field as he has a FanShare ownership projection of just 3%.


RBs

Clyde-Edwards Helaire ($7,400)

The rookie showed workhorse capabilities in Week 1, as he went off for 138 yards on 25 carries with an additional 2 targets in the passing game.

It could have been a huge debut for the rookie, but he was stopped on numerous goal-line carries. The Chiefs are going to be projected for roughly 30 points every week — and playing alongside Patrick Mahomes, CEH is certainly underpriced for his upside.

There was plenty of meat left on the bone as he didn’t have any catches in Week 1 and was only able to punch in 1 of his red zone carries. CEH has a projected ownership of 15%, so I will be looking to play him in at least 30%+ of my GPP lineups on DraftKings.

Miles Sanders ($6,000)

Sanders has one of the highest projected ceilings for RBs on the Week 2 slate but comes in priced as the RB12 against a Rams defense that was just torched by Zeke Elliott for over 120 all-purpose yards and 2 TDs.

Practicing in full for Week 2, Sanders is a good bet for 18+ touches and should benefit with the return of stud offensive lineman Lane Johnson.

With a FanShare ownership projection of just 11%, I will be looking to use Sanders in at least 25% of my DK GPP lineups in Week 2.


WRs

Robert Woods ($6,400)

Robert Woods has been a machine of late, surpassing 95 yards or scoring a TD in 7 of his last 8 games dating back to last season. He has been by far Jared Goff’s favorite target since the removal of Brandin Cooks and once again was the Rams’ top option in Week 1 with 8 targets.

Woods is a better play on DK since he can get the 100-yard bonus and has struggled to find the end zone with just 2 TDs in the entire 2019 season. He’s going overlooked with a FanShare ownership projection of under 10%.

The matchup isn’t easy as Woods figures to match up frequently with top Eagles corner Darius Slay. But WR/CB matchups are generally overhyped and Woods should run some of his routes in the slot, where the Eagles are weak at LB and safety.

Allen Robinson ($6,400)

A-Rob should be fired up in all formats as he once again led the Bears in targets with 9 in Week 1 and faces a pathetic Giants defense that was carved up by Ben Roethlisberger in the opener.

A-Rob is among the top route-runners in the league and with Mitch Trubisky not expected to be pressured by a non-existent Giants pass rush, Robinson should have extra time to get open and make plays down the field.

FanShare projects A-Rob at just 7.6% ownership. He offers top 5 upside at the position, making him an elite GPP play in Week 2.


TE

Mark Andrews ($6,300)

I’m always seeking TDs at the TE position, and who’s a better bet to score a TD than Mark Andrews? The Ravens are projected for 30 points and take on an awful Texans defense that was nuked for 34 points by the Chiefs in Week 1.

Lamar Jackson loves looking for Andrews in the red zone, hitting him for 2 scores in Week 1. I expect much of the same in Week 2 as it will be a great challenge for Houston to stop the high-flying Ravens.

Andrews offers big upside as he led all TEs in Week 1 scoring. And with a projected ownership of just 11%, I will be looking to roster Andrews in about 30% of my GPP lineups this week.


DST

Jets ($2,000)

I’m an advocate for paying down at defense on DraftKings. That paid off for us in Week 1 with the Washington Football Team being the top defense on the slate at the minimum price of just $2,000.

The Jets defense doesn’t have the same talent as the Football Team, but at just $2,000 in a home matchup against the 49ers, I will be looking to roster the Jets in lineups where I want to pay up at other positions.

Enhancing the Jets’ outlook, stud TE George Kittle will either be out or limited in this Week 2 matchup.
