The price is Wright in Week 3 DFS
Daily Fantasy Players are finally beginning to feel the squeeze on their value options, as FanDuel, DraftKings and Yahoo all continue to elevate pricing on the early-season breakout performers.
Bargain shoppers can still save cap space by looking into these low-cost running back and wide receiver punt plays. Each week, I’ll feature the top punt options at both positions that present the most value for your daily fantasy lineups.
Devonta Freeman, Atlanta Falcons – FanDuel $6,500, DraftKings $4,600, Yahoo $18
With Tevin Coleman sidelined due to a broken rib in Week 2, the door has officially swung open for Freeman to get the lion’s share of touches in Week 3 against Dallas. While Freeman has struggled to get going on the ground through the first two weeks, he still holds potential to do damage in the passing game for the Falcons.
The Cowboys allowed Philadelphia running backs to grab seven catches for 76 yards last Sunday, which is surprising given the Eagles awful offensive performance. Given the mountain of injuries facing the Cowboys, Atlanta may be able to take advantage of having more possessions and get their second-year tailback more involved. Freeman is solid bet for 15-20 touches this Sunday.
