DFS value plays for Week 10

Last week’s picks did very well. Delanie Walker caught seven balls for 95 yards and two touchdowns. Derek Carr finished fifth in fantasy point among quarterbacks. Darren McFadden rushed for 117 yards. Jeremy Langford finished as a top-5 fantasy running back for the week. Brandon LaFell racked up 102 receiving yards. The Jets DST finished second in fantasy points.

That’s not bad for a bunch of cheap plays. If you rostered a combination of them, you likely finished in good shape. If you played them with the right high-priced superstars, your stars-and-scrubs strategy might have put you near the top of the GPP leader boards.

After sorting through this week’s price sheets, I’ve found some valuable players for your Week 10 rosters. As I have done every week, I used my prediction models—which I’ve written about in the past—to find the players with the most value at each position on all three major DFS sites. I also accounted for injuries and matchups when I made my picks.

Most of the well-known fantasy studs and superstars have been excluded. Even though I think many of them have a lot of value this week, I don’t think it’s necessary to explain why.

Now, lets dive into some of my most value picks for Week 10. I’ve included many of the players’ projected floor and ceiling scores (PPR). They give us clear indication of who has good GPP potential (high ceiling), and who should be used primarily in cash games (high floor). The prices listed below each player are the ones I consider to be a good values this week.

Kirk Cousins (GPP) vs. New Orleans

Cousins had a mediocre performance last week against the Patriots. He finished the day with 217 passing yards, one touchdown, and one interception. That’s understandable, as the Patriots defense (46.8) is a top-tier unit. They have the second-highest pass coverage rating (27.2) in the league. In his four games prior to Week 9, Cousins racked up a total of eight touchdowns and 1,044 yards.

This week, he’ll face the bottom-tier Saints defense (-22.8). It has the third-lowest pass coverage rating (-26.4) in the league, and has given up the second-most points per game (29.8). With the help of his fully healthy receiving corps, Cousins should have a productive game. His floor is seven points, and his ceiling is 29.

    Thanks Dave. Feel like we need to discount Walker’s (and Mariota’s) performance vs NO because of the flukey would-be INT turned big TD play. That’s a 6-8 point swing for both players.

    I guess that’s more of a commentary on the Saints D vs TE.
