Welcome back! We had a very good showing with last week’s NFL daily fantasy sports article, and we’re looking to continue that success this time around. Lamar Jackson had a terrific game on the ground, eclipsing 100 yards easily, which is why we liked him to begin with. Also, Jonathan Taylor ended up being one of the most productive running backs on the board, even outscoring Derek Henry for a lot less salary. Another guy we mentioned was Michael Thomas, who returned three times his price tag on DraftKings, something you aim for when taking running backs and wide receivers. The other Thomas we discussed, Logan Thomas, had a very strong outing against a stout Tampa Bay Bucs’ defense. Honestly, the only pick that was remotely close to a letdown was the New Orleans Saints defense, but even they did decent and wouldn’t have sunk your lineups if you played them.
This week, we have fewer games, but just as many names for you this week. On Saturday, the Los Angeles Rams travel to Green Bay to take on the Packers, and the Baltimore Ravens venture to Buffalo in an AFC showdown with the Bills. Sunday’s games feature the Cleveland Browns visiting the Kansas City Chiefs, and the Tampa Bay Buccaneers face off against the New Orleans Saints for the third time this year. My predictions: Packers, Bills, Chiefs, Bucs. Let’s see if I’m right!
Let’s get into who our favorite players are at each position for your DFS lineups this weekend on DraftKings and FanDuel.
