If you’re having trouble narrowing the wide field of players down into a DFS lineup capable of making some money, you’re in the right spot. There are a bunch of different directions you could go in today but the formula for cashing a GPP remains the same – Find high upside players at a low ownership percentage. Luckily our DFS tools are built to do just that so take a look a few of the guys we recommend targeting in your contest.
Jeff Wilson – The 49ers RB cycle is anything but consistent and with Elijah Mitchell doubtful for todays matchup, Jeff Wilson is expected to be the lone ball carrier against Jacksonville. This isn’t someone who has been incredibly active so far this season due to the fact that he himself has been dealing with injury but ;ast year he was a producer within the rotation of RBs and could return to that form at any time. He’s being overlooked by a large portion of fantasy owners given the increased workload he’s expected to see and if he produces to the extent that he’s capable of he could be an easy GPP money maker. He’s only priced at about $5000 on both platforms and when you factor him our projections, you can expect more than a 3x return on your investment. He’s included in 100% of our lineups on bpth FD and DK so we strongly recommend considering him as a target for your lineup.
Darren Waller – The Raiders have struggled in the recent weeks and you could argue it had something to do with the events that took place outside of the locker room however they’ll look to move passed that today against the Bengals. Waller is a top tier TE but isn’t being targeted like one this week. Our projected ownership of him doesn’t surpass 10% on either platform and when you consider Wallers upside on any given week, this makes him an elite GPP target. The Bengals aren’t particularly susceptible to TE’s but we’d argue they also haven’t faced one as versatile as Waller so we could see these numbers level out a little bit today. He’s not overly expensive and when you factor in his projections, you can expect a near 2.3x return in fantasy production. He’s a better start on FD where you’re going to get a little bit more bang for your buck but regardless he’s starting in at least half of our lineups on both platforms.
Cam Newton – Superman is back in Carolina and comes in as a surprisingly viable GPP candidate today. We all know the fantasy production Cam is capable of generating both through the air and on the ground but his problem is consistency. It’s tough to feel confident starting him because of how up and down he is but today he has a few things working for him. For starters he’s only going to be owned by about 7% of the field on both FD and DK which alone creates a ton of upside but then when you factor in his matchup, he becomes even more appealing. The Football Team is coming off a huge upset win against the defending super bowl champs despite having one of the worst defenses in the league. We don’t expect that to carry over into this week and believe they’ll be exploited in a few different ways today. Cam is always good for yards in the ground or maybe even a QB sneak on the 1yd line and today he’s set up to move the ball with ease through the air as well against a poor secondary. We’ve Targeted Newton in nearly half of our lineups and recommend him as a good GPP consideration.
