Lineup of building blocks

Stefon Diggs ($31) @ Miami Dolphins

Diggs’ DFS salary this week looks like a bargain on record, as it was pegged before he crashed Monday night. Most PPR Fantasy Points across 2 games in any WR For the last 20 years. Gabriel Davis We may be back this week, but Diggs looks like the top 3 fantasy WRs every week. Offense with the most passes in footballDiggs are a strong DFS building block facing a Miami team that ranks among the top three in passing percentage in a matchup that scored the highest total of the week (54.0 points).

Leonard Fournette ($27) vs. Green Bay Packers

Fournette barely made it back into the PPR top 20 in two games, but his usage was truly elite.that’s all Christian McCaffrey With a high percentage of snaps among all running backs, Fournette rested during Tampa Bay’s easy Week 1 win. We didn’t have a welcome party, but Fournette was second in last week’s RB route involvementWhen Tom Brady Highest RB Target % among all QBs in the last five seasons. Mike Evans It’s been discontinued this week Julio Jones If he comes back he could be restricted. Fournette said he had the second most carries (45) in the NFL, faced a tough schedule (@Dal, @NO), returned home, was allowed a 5.6 YPC, and was low in the DVOA. The Packers’ run, which ranks third, faces his defense. Fournette also promised a fantasy manager touchdown coming soon.

Jaylen Waddle ($25) vs. Buffalo Bills

Waddles are even more valuable in full PPR, but they are also worth using in salaries other than top 10 wide receivers.concerns about Tua Tagovailoa or if the target conflict is completely erased, Tua looked great in the league Most Concentrated WR Target TreeIn fact, neither tyreek hill Waddle target price per route Higher than any season leader in the last five years. Waddle saw the second most air yards last week. The Dolphins will need him to pass a ton again on Sunday in the face of the Bills’ strong offense and run defense.with a unique matchup 2 offenses ranked in the top 3 with higher-than-expected pass percentages Launch all relevant wideouts in the best over/under of the week.

vanishing star

Travis Kelce ($33) @ Indianapolis Colts

Kelce is off to a solid start to the season, but this salary fades out for DFS. Mark Andrews Week 2 air yard share was 40% compared to 26% for Kelce5 years older, Targeting much lower rates Still, salaries at DFS are 21% higher. The upset by a desperate 0-2 Colts team isn’t shocking, but it’s this version of a true shootout. Matt Ryan Amazing.

an underrated option

Jared Goff ($20) @ Minnesota Vikings

Goff was the QB7 of Week 2’s fantasy, but somehow saw his salary drop 10% in the Week 3 matchup in the face of a Vikings defense that allowed a 7.9 YPA and allowed a bottom three spot on the DVOA. We’re down to the minimum QB DFS. Goff played much better in Detroit last season than he did on the road, benefiting from starting his two games at home, but playing at the Dome on Sunday. aided by dominant offensive line (When sun god), with Minnesota likely to score a lot of points this week, Goff should be forced to pass often. This matchup earned the second highest total of the week (53.5 points).

David Montgomery ($18) vs. Houston Texans

Montgomery was fourth in snap percentage and target percentage among all backs last week. Nick Chubb We saw more red zone carries (4). Now, he’s scoring on Houston’s defense, giving his backs running Fantasy his fifth-most points since the start of last season, and this year he’s scoring 4.7 YPCs.Bad weather helped in the first week, but Chicago remained Run the heaviest team by far in footballand the Bears are home favorites this week. Montgomery looked great while enduring Khalil Herbert, ranked in the top 10 for more rush yards than expected. In a favorable matchup this week, he’s underrated in his DFS.

Drake London ($17) @ Seattle Seahawks

London was very impressive. aggressive environment The rookie wideout ranks among the top five in target shares for all WRs this season, so he missed an awful lot of practice before the season started. London ranks among the top 10 in the NFL with an impressive route run of 2.76 yards. He led the league in First Down Target % Last week (first down target Worth 20% more PPR points).it is also possible Seattle opens it let me Geno Smith Cook more on Sundays.

there is a risk of Kyle Pitts In a breakout game in Atlanta’s passing offense, two pass catchers are unlikely to explode at the same time, but it’s hard to ignore how dominant London has been in both games. This week, he scored a Seattle pass funnel defense that enabled his 7.8 YPA, ranking him 30th against passes and top 10 against DVOA runs.

bargain bin

Irv Smith Jr. ($10) vs. Detroit Lions

Smith Jr. dropped a 65-yard touchdown on Monday night, but finished as a top-5 fantasy tight end in Week 2 anyway. He remains at his DFS minimum here, as the salary was announced before Monday night’s performance. However, Smith placed him first in the tight end league his leader in air yard share and targets per route run.Smith Jr. is one of them. Season leader for target average depth A very weak tight end position, he’s a bargain against the week’s second-highest total (53.5 points).
