Halfway through the 2018 NFL season, and some traditional fantasy players may already be out of the running in their leagues.
Thankfully, with daily fantasy games, every week is a new chance to find value and make some money.
Last week, our DraftKings value plays were pretty solid — Sammy Watkins was the fifth-highest scoring player in all of fantasy, while Chris Carson and Philip Lindsay both finished as top-15 running backs. This week, we’re back at it again, searching for players that have a good shot to outscore their value in daily fantasy.
Take a look below for our picks at every position that looks set to outplay their pricing this week in DraftKings. They’ll come in handy for when you’ve constructed the perfect lineup only to find that you don’t have quite as much money left for your flex as you expected.
QB: Alex Smith, $5,000
Alex Smith is one of the cheapest starting quarterbacks on the board this week, and he’s facing off against a Falcons defense that has allowed opponents to score 29 points or more in five of their seven games so far this season.
Smith is by no means a gunslinger, but if you’re in need of a value play at quarterback, he’s your guy.
RB: Nick Chubb, $4,500
Nick Chubb has emerged as the Browns‘ go-to running back, after the trade of Carlos Hyde, and has an opportunity for a huge game this weekend. While the Chiefs‘ offense is fearsome, their defense has lacked all season, and Chubb should be able to take advantage and outplay his roster cost on Sunday.
RB: Isaiah Crowell, $4,200
Isaiah Crowell is a boom-or-bust player, but against the Dolphins this weekend, there’s a solid chance he can boom. If you need a longshot pick to rush for 150 yards and two scores, he’s likely your best bet.
