The Steelers go on the road to face the LA Chargers in Sunday night football. The spread on this game is 6 with the total set at 47.5 and if you’re looking to make some DFS money, you’re in the right spot. Check out who we’re targeting for our lineups…
Justin Herbert – Herbert still hasn’t quite had that big breakout fantasy game yet this year and it might not seem like he’s in line for one tonight against the Steelers defense, but out projections are extremely high on him tonight. On Draft Kings he consistently generates more than 3x his salary which is normally in the 7,000s but tonight has been increased significantly. Nevertheless we still think you can expect about 2x your investment in fantasy production recommend him as a safe start. Of course because we’re only looking at one game the QBs come as very chalky starts but we still think he’s worth a start in both cash and GPP.
Austin Ekeler – Ekeler comes in as another top tier start being targeted in at least 60% of our lineups on both FD and DK. He’s currently listed in the price range of $10,000 and you can expect a near 2x return on your investment making him a good person to stack with Herbert tonight. The Steelers haven’t been nearly as successful thiss year as they have in the passed at stopping the run and with Ekeler expected to see the majority of the carries we like him to produce in a big way tonight. We’re expecting a near 1.9x return on your fantasy investment so we recommend targeting him in your contest.
Deante Johnson – If you’re looking for someone to produce on the Steelers we recommend Johnson. He’s by far one of the most underrated fantasy receivers in the league at least from a fantasy perspective and tonight should be no different. We like him to account for more than 2x his listed salary in fantasy production and given the other receiving option tonight his usage should be cut down significantly. The Chargers don’t give much up through the air but Johnson is an athlete and con produce up against anybody. At the price you’re getting we recommend targeting him in the majority of your lineups as we’ve done so in at least half of ours on both platforms.
