The top DFS bargains for Week 7
DFS is a skill game, but who would turn away luck? Especially when it comes to bargain plays. This week I mostly concentrate on low-priced players with touchdown upside. There are a few high-floor candidates based on the presumed game script, but overall I try to give you big play options while hoping for the best.
You can’t win at any game if you only play it safe.
Philip Rivers, San Diego Chargers (at Atlanta)
FanDuel: $7,800 (12th)
DraftKings: $6,500 (eighth)
Yahoo: $39 (second, tied)
Not surprisingly, the Denver Broncos broke Rivers’ three-game streak of games with 300 or more passing yards, but this week he gets to face the friendlier Atlanta Falcons. Atlanta was able to contain Russell Wilson, Paxton Lynch and a Cam Newton/Derek Anderson timeshare, but Jameis Winston, Derek Carr and Drew Brees all threw three or more touchdowns on them in the first three weeks of the season.
