Stefon Diggs is a top GPP play in Week 10
Last week was a perfect example of process vs. results and why — in order to be successful in DFS — you need to focus on the former and not the latter. My headline player in last week’s article was Mark Ingram as I felt he was one of the best plays on DraftKings given his situation, price, upside, etc. We had him projected for 19.5 opportunities against a below-average Titans run defense.
He ended up with a whopping 27 opportunities, but turned that into just 96 total yards and no touchdowns. What’s even more frustrating is that the Saints ran five plays inside the 10-yard line and Ingram went 0-for-2 on carries from the 1-yard line. Am I frustrated with the result? Yes, but that’s not going to stop me from going back to the well in what is another good matchup this week.
The bottom line is that the opportunity was there for Ingram to have a huge game and more often than not he comes out with a top-10 week there.
Note: Every week I will take Mike Clay’s Box Score Projections and plug them into an excel sheet with DraftKings dollar values. From this, we’re able to see PFF’s projected dollar per touch, which is a great predictor for which players will be the best values for DFS.
