It’s another glorious week of fantasy football action, as several tasty matchups offer up tons of value. If you’re not getting that value in your regular season long league, perhaps it’s time for you to take the hike over to a DFS site like Draft Kings and see if your sleeper radar can get you some fat wads of cash.
Regardless, our weekly look at Draft Kings value buys doesn’t fall on deaf ears even if you don’t play DFS football, since these sleepers are still typically sleepers, either way. Thanks to this kick ass FantasyPros tool, you get to see the guys I like the most based off of DK pricing, and you can do the math the rest of the way to see how that translates to your league.
Of course, no fantasy tool is perfect, so not all of these suggested value buys are actually completely condoned by me. To help you work through the mess, I’ll quickly break down the guys I’m not high on and offer reason why:
Love: Vincent Jackson, Russell Wilson, Tom Brady, Ronnie Hillman, Shady, Larry Donnell
V-Jax finally broke out last week, Russ is always a good play and Shady is too good of a value to pass up. Hillman has a starter role and has the explosive factor, Donnell has a terrific matchup and Brady is vastly under-priced after proving last week he ain’t dead yet.
Hate: Robert Turbin, Bandon LaFell and Jets/Redskins defense
The Redskins defense might be worth considering if Carson Palmer is out, but even then, this is a desert game and Washington can’t stop the pass to save their life. Turbin has no role and Dallas actually stops the run decently usually, while LaFell is shaky as can be.
Worth a Shot: Adams, Ebron and Robinson
No Megatron this week could really open the door for Ebron, while Adams is Green Bay’s #3 wide receiver, which can always be a good thing. Robinson is starting and has upside, but Titans actually happen to be decent against the pass.
