Week 2 DraftKings - Flops and Big Nuts

Soooo, if you listened to me last week, we didn't have too much success. I said Burrow would be a flop and he did lose the game outright and turn the ball over 5 times, but he still scored a shit ton of points. Jameis did finish in the Top 8 so did nail that one.

Remember, the goal is to find some value in these positions so you can spend up on others and also prevent you from wasting your budget on a buster. Pick and choose wisely. Also, gamble responsibly!

Flops (2-2)

QB (0-1) - Rb’s (0-1) - WR (0-1) - TE (1-0)

Big Nuts (1-3)

QB (1-0) - Rb’s (0-1) - WR (0-1) - TE (0-1)

Let’s Kick Off Week 1


Flop = Russell Wilson $7200 (3rd)

Rank 3rd QB - Projection = Outside Top 12 QB

Did anyone watch last weeks game vs the Seahawks? Russ is decent but he ain't HIM no more. The Broncos need to run the ball with Gordon and Williams. Top 3? You're a drunk fool to oay up for this guy.

I'm slightly joking here, I think Denver should be abead in this game and will use the ground game to seal the deal. Give me Russ to have a pedestrian day in a Broncos victory.

Rank 3rd QB - Projection = Outside Top 12 QB

Big Nuts = Trevor Lawrence $5300 (17th)

Lawrence looked not terrible last week vs Washington. The volume is going to be there and he has some targets to with. Kirk looks nice, Etienne out of the backfield and I expect them to be able to score. They were in the redzone a lot but came away with fewr than expected points.

I'll take Lawrence to finish with a nice statline and finish with a good fantasy day!

Rank 17th QB - Projection = Top 8 QB

Running Backs

Flop = Nick Chubb $7100 (6th)

The Jets defense was respectable with a solid day against the Ravens, a predominantly rush first offense. I expect them to play the Browns similarly and dare Brissett to beat them through the air. They will sellout to the run and be successful at it. Chubb gets decent volume but fails to reach the endzone again.

Rank 6th RB - Projection = Outside Top 20 RB

Big Nuts = Chase Edmunds (34th)

The attempted usage is there, and the Ravens gave up a decent amount of RB damage in week 1 to Michael Carter and Breece Hall. If the Dolphins fall behind or take the lead, I like the odds here that Chase has a day

Rank 34th RB - Projection = Top 15 RB

Wide Receivers

Flop = Mike Evans $6800 (7th)

Over the years, Mike sucks versus Marshon and that continues this weekend. The Bucs rely on their RB production out of the backfield and Evans struggles .

Rank 7th WR - Projection = Outside Top 25 WR 

Big Nuts = Ashton Dulin $3200 (80+)

Pierce is out, Pittman is doubled, Parris does Parris things and Ashton is the beneficiary. I have a feeling this is a shootout and we could save a ton in this spot. Ashton can crack 80 yards and get in the endzone.

Rank 80+ WR - Projection = Top 30 WR

Tight Ends

Flop = Kyle Pitts $5400

Just a young buck and a great defense. Pitts is going to be the focus of the defense and the Rams limit that position well. Don't spend the money

Rank 4th TE - Projection = Outside Top 12 TE

Big Nuts = Tyler Conklin $3200 (18th)

He drew a lot of targets and the Joe Flacco expirement lives on another week. Banking on another TD is suspect but I'll roll the dice in this matchup

Rank 18th TE - Projection = Top 6 TE
