Week 7 DraftKings Tournament Picks

By Jared Smola 10:10am EDT 10/23/20


QB

Cam Newton ($6,300)

The matchup through the air is a good one as San Francisco ranks 22nd against the pass. Hopefully Cam knocked the rust off last week against the Broncos when he struggled throwing for just 157 yards and 2 INTs.

I think the Patriots will bounce back in a big way and Cam is an excellent upside GPP play as he still had over 20 DK points last week despite struggling against the Broncos.

The 49ers have given up the most rushes and yards to opposing QBs, which also bodes well for Cam, who has finished as a top-12 QB in 3 of his past 4 starts for the Patriots.

Underpriced at $6,300, I will look to roster Cam in at least 20% of my Week 7 GPP lineups.


RBs

Alvin Kamara ($7,900)

Kamara is a tough fade this week as he has the highest projected ceiling among all RBs on slate at 24.4 DK points.

The Saints are coming off a bye week in a tasty matchup against the Panthers’ leaky defense, which ranks 26th against the run. Kamara is the real deal as he is always a threat for a multi-score game and 100+ yards both on the ground and in the air.

Kamara has 37 catches on the season and is averaging over 30+ DK points with 7 TDs in just 5 games.

I will be firing up Kamara in at least 30% of my GPP lineups.

Justin Jackson ($4,900)

Jackson is a top value in a dream matchup against the Jags and underpriced below $5K. He operated as the lead back in front of rookie Joshua Kelley last time out.

Jacksonville ranks 32nd against the pass and 22nd against the run, so I like Jackson’s chances for a TD with the Chargers favored by 8 points at home.

HC Anthony Lynn loves a run-heavy game-plan and the Chargers should be able to do whatever they want against a helpless Jags defense.

If Jackson gets 16+ touches at $4,900, he could be an exceptional GPP play. I’ll look to roster him aggressively in at least 30% of my GPP lineups in Week 7.


WRs

Keenan Allen ($6,200)

Allen has been amazing with Justin Herbert, totaling 40 targets in his previous 3 games before exiting Week 5 due to injury.

The Week 6 bye should have allowed Allen to rest his ailing back. And he should easily get back on track against the horrendous 32nd ranked pass defense of the Jaguars.

Priced as the WR15 and seeing tremendous volume with Herbert, Allen is a great value and will be one of my main targets in my Week 7 GPP portfolio.

Tyler Lockett ($6,600)

Lockett is in play every week as he and D.K. Metcalf easily lead Seattle in targets with over 15 more than the next closest option in the passing game.

Lockett is my preferred GPP play since he should come in at lower ownership with just 6 catches for 79 yards in his previous 2 games.

Arizona ranks 10th against the pass, but Lockett will be primarily running routes in the slot, where fellow slot WRs Jamison Crowder and CeeDee Lamb lit up the Cardinals for a combined 15 catches for 180 yards and a TD.

Lockett is my favorite GPP play of Week 7 and I’m hoping for a repeat of Week 3 when he went for 100 yards and 3 scores, finishing as the overall WR1 on the week.


TE

Travis Kelce ($6,300)

Kelce is extremely underpriced at just $6,300 on DraftKings — $200 cheaper than George Kittle and cheaper than WRs such as Amari Cooper, Will Fuller, Kenny Golladay, CeeDee Lamb and A.J. Brown. I’d take Kelce straight up against all of them.

The TE options are few and far between this week, so I think it makes a lot of sense to pay up for Kelce, who has been a monster with at least 70 yards or a TD in every game this season.

With George Kittle going up against a solid Patriots defense, Kelce has easily the highest TE floor/ceiling combo on the slate and could easily pull away from the field if he has one of his patented 100-yard, 2-score games against the Broncos’ 9th-ranked pass defense.

With limited TE options this week, I will look to aggressively roster Kelce in at least 40% of my GPP lineups.


DST

Browns ($2,800)

Cleveland ranks 2nd in the dollars-per-points rankings, behind only Washington.

The Browns defense has been giving up a lot of points but are opportunistic with 14 sacks, 6 fumbles, 6 INTs and a TD on the season.

Joe Burrow and the Bengals love airing it out, making the Bengals are a great matchup for opposing defenses.

The Browns were able to sack Burrow 3 times in their Week 2 matchup.

Underpriced at $2,800, I will be looking to roster the Browns in at least 20% of my GPP lineups.
