Week 3 DraftKings Tournament Picks

By Jared Smola 6:09pm EDT 9/24/20


QB

Matthew Stafford ($6,300)

Stafford may fly under the radar this week coming in as the 10th QB in dollars per projected point in an up-tempo game with the 2-0 Cardinals.

Stafford has been mediocre through 2 games with exactly 17.2 points in games against the division-rival Bears and Packers.

With the potential return of stud WR Kenny Golladay, Stafford has a better chance of reaching a ceiling game with a projected ceiling of 24.1.


RBs

Miles Sanders ($6,400)

Coming off of a 20-carry, 7-target debut against the Rams, Sanders is sitting atop our dollars-per-projected-point rankings.

The 27 opportunities were extremely promising for Sanders as he was dealing with a hamstring injury for most of training camp and missed Week 1 against the Washington Football Team.

Now Sanders gets to take on the Bengals, who were just obliterated by the Browns for 215 rushing yards (6.1 YPC) and 3 TDs.

Sanders won’t be low owned but is a borderline must play in a must-win for the Eagles at a cheap price tag of just $6,400 on DK.

Jerick McKinnon ($4,900)

McKinnon comes in as the 8th ranked RB in dollars per projected point, with teammates Tevin Coleman and Raheem Mostert not suiting up to play the Giants in Week 3.

McKinnon has looked healthy and explosive so far this season with 6 carries for 101 yards and a TD and 3 catches for 20 yards and another score.

If we can project McKinnon for 15+ touches or HC Kyle Shanahan states that he will be the bell cow, McKinnon would become a fantastic play at just $4,900.


WRs

Allen Robinson ($6,200)

Robinson has struggled so far this season with just 8 catches on 18 targets. It was surprising to see Robinson catch just 3 of 9 targets in a matchup against the Giants, but I’m looking for a buy-low in a great matchup against the putrid Falcons defense in a dome.

The Falcons gave up 38 points to Seattle in Week 1 and 40 points to Dallas in Week 2. With Robinson still dominating the target market share in Chicago, low projected ownership and a great matchup, I’ll be looking to roster A-Rob in at least 15-20% of my Week 3 GPP lineups.

T.Y. Hilton ($5,600)

Hilton is another buy-low candidate as he has parlayed 14 targets into a measly 7-81-0 in positive matchups against the Jaguars and Vikings.

T.Y. hasn’t been himself this season with multiple drops, including a long TD pass in Week 2 on a perfect throw from Phillip Rivers.

Against a pathetic Jets defense, I expect the Colts to make a conscious effort to get T.Y. involved early and often. If he gets 8+ targets, I think he has a nice chance at a big game.

Hilton will be extremely low owned in Week 3, so even using him in 10% of lineups will give us big leverage.


TE

Logan Thomas ($3,700)

Thomas sits at 2nd in dollars per projected point, as his $3,700 price-tag is simply too cheap for his role in the offense. He saw 8 targets in Week 1 and 9 in Week 2.

I like Thomas more than some of the other options in his price range, such as Mo Alie-Cox at $3,800, Jordan Reed at $4,000 and Chris Herndon at $3,400.

The Browns rank 23rd in Football Outsiders’ TE coverage rankings and have allowed Mark Andrews to dominate them for 5-58-2 in Week 1 and Bengals TEs to combine for 11-87-1 in Week 2.


DST

Bills ($3,400)

I expect the Bills offense to have success. And if they build an early lead, I can see Jared Goff really struggling if the Bills are able to unleash their pass rush against a mediocre offensive line.

The Bills have racked up 3 sacks in each of their first 2 games. If LBs Matt Milano and Tre Edmonds return to the lineup, that is a major boost going up against Tyler Higbee, Cooper Kupp and Robert Woods in the middle of the field.
