Each week I will be discussing bargain priced players under 5,000 on Draftkings. By drafting these players it will make it easier to add players like Ezekiel Elliot and Saquon Barkley to your winning lineup.
Playing fantasy is always a fun and sometimes maddening experience. An especially daily fantasy where one bad addition can destroy your lineup in larger contests. Let’s get started on the DraftKings bargain-priced players that will help you win.
Taysom Hill 4,400
The injury to Drew Brees’s hand in last week lost to the Rams has caused a major shift in thinking for the Saints. Teddy Bridgewater was considered the favorite to start this week vs the Seahawks. There has been a possible change in the last few days from Sean Payton about who will start.
Hill has the ability to score from the quarterback, running back and wide receiver position. He had a receiving TD in week 1. Even when Brees was healthy Hill was taking snaps in the red zone at quarterback. There will be an expanded role for Hill that will include more reps at quarterback. Also, the Seahawks rank 26th in overall pass defense so I think Hill can take advantage of there secondary.
Prediction: 100 yards passing 1 TD passing 50 yards rushing and 2 TDs rushing
Frank Gore 4,400
The 36-year-old Gore is still productive even at his age. With the Bills outstanding rookie Devin Singletary possibly out this week, Gore could be in line for 20 plus touches this week. Last week Gore had 19 carries 68 yards and a rushing TD vs the Giants. There is a possibility of split carries with TJ Yeldon but Gore will still have plenty of opportunities vs the Bengals who rank 27th vs the run.
Prediction: 85 yards rushing 1TD
Nelson Agholor 3,600
In the last game, we saw the Eagles lose their top two wide receivers in DeSean Jackson and Alshon Jeffery. Last week Agholor brought in 8 catches for 107 yards and a TD. With both still hobbled this week, Agholor has a chance to surpass his 11 targets from last week. Facing a Detroit that is 20th vs the pass the Eagles should have no problems moving the ball through the air in a game that should be high scoring.
Prediction: 8 catches 115 yards 1TD
When playing DraftKings and other DFS sites it is always a good idea to research the lower-cost players. Everyone knows the big names and most likely will have them in their lineup. You win money when you find the bargain-priced players that have low ownership. These players make all the difference in daily fantasy sports.
