Week 10 was full of interesting games and fantasy results. It was a get right week for a few teams and tonight we could see more of the same with the Rams heading to San Francisco for a divisional matchup. This game is set with a 3.5 point spread favoring the Rams and a total of 50.5 depending on where you look which means points are expected. If you plan on setting a DFS lineup don’t lock it in without checking out tonight’s top targets!
Cooper Kupp – There just no reason to go away from Kupp. Obviously he’s a chalky play and will likely be targeted by the majority of DFS players tonight but it’s completely justified. Depending on where you play, he’s the most expensive player on the board yet we’re still projecting him to double his salary making him a must target for tonight’s game. Based on his projected ownership this is a much better start in cash contests than GPP but there really no wrong place to use him. The 49ers have faired decently against the pass so far this season only allowing 206yds per game but at the level Kupp has been preforming at, you can afford to exclude him from your lineup if you’re looking to cash. We’ve included him in all of our lineups on DK and on FD he is in less but still the large majority. This is a “ride with the pack” and see what happens situation.
Deebo Samuel – Despite what may look like an elite passing defense, the Rams come in extremely average in this category ranking 16/32. They allow on average 248yds per game and are down a few guys on that side of the ball which sets up very nicely for Samuel. This is a much better start on DK where he’s far less expensive and projected to produce more than 2x his cost but on FD his numbers are less flattering. His price has been bumped up nearly $4,000 and his projections fall but he’s still included in about half of our lineups here whereas on DK his inclusion rate is nearly 95%. We think he’s in a very good spot to produce tonight and recommend him for both cash and GPP.
Elijah Mitchell – The Rams are decent at stopping the run and allow less than 100yds per game but we’re still high on Mitchell tonight. One thing the Rams have a tough time doing is stopping first downs which means their defense is on the field for an extended period of time. This will create a good opportunity for the Niners RB to overtake the work horse role. He’s been on the rise in the past few weeks and leading the team in carries which means the RB situation in San Francisco is now less of a committee and more of a one person show. You can still get him at a relatively cheap price and we’re projecting him to produce about 1.8x his salary. We’ve targeted him in a very high percentage of our lineups on both FD and DK and recommend him as a better start in GPP but good for both.
