Optimal DraftKings plays for Week 10
Each week I’ll comb through the options at each position to bring you my picks for the players with the best combination of safety and upside over a wide price range. These are guys you’ll use in cash games for the most part, but there’s nothing wrong with slotting a couple into your tournament lineups as well for stability.
Aaron Rodgers $7500: Tom Brady is headlining a lot of must-play lists this weekend for good reasons…I trust you know them so I’ll use the space to advocate for the $1100 cheaper Rodgers. He mounted an impressive comeback last week, especially in fantasy terms, but they still didn’t look like the classic Aaron Rodgers Packers. Despite the perception of a bad season, Rodgers has a 19:3 TD:INT ratio and has the sixth highest QB efficiency score (0.57 pts per dropback). I think the Lions are just the soft matchup (allowing the third most fantasy points to quarterbacks) to make Rodgers shine again, and Randall Cobb along with him. This could be one of the highest scoring tandems this week.
