Week in and week out we are diving into the best value plays at various positions. Each week always plays out differently, especially when deciding what areas to spend down on, and where to spend up. While many articles point out the top values, we hope to guide you in lineup construction as well. Pricing on DraftKings generally ties into fantasy point outcome, matchups, and ownership a little more than FanDuel does who use production as a heavier weight. Injuries, seasonal changes, and matchups all create value, and here at DFC we break that down for you. Our content is focused on the Main Slates, but you can find me answering questions in the comments, or on Twitter at @JGuilbault11. Premium access grants full list of value plays.
Josh McCown, QB, New York Jets
Yards Per Attempt
Opposing Secondary Rank
DraftKings doesn't have a nice mid-range section of QBs like FanDuel does this week, so if you are looking to dive down under $6,000 for QB on DraftKings, there are two options in my eyes. Andy Dalton and Josh McCown. Dalton has the better matchup, but also is a tough guy to trust. I have not had any issue trusting McCown this year, especially at these price tags. Atlanta ranks 25th in DVOA against the pass this season, and this Jets team has put up a trustworthy passing attack this season. 67% of their touchdowns this season have come through the air. McCown has hit his projection above 75% of the time over the last eight games, and has aired out 30 or more passing attempts in four of seven games this season. At $5,600 this is a reasonable price tag, and McCown should flirt with 15-20 DK points.
