NFL DFS Week 3
Russell Wilson, Seattle Seahawks vs Dallas Cowboys (FD: $8,700, DK: $7,300):
He’s absolutely dominated both the Falcons and Patriots and now gets a match-up against the Cowboys’ defense that just gave up 39 points to Matty Ice and the Falcons. In the first two weeks of the 2020 campaign, Dallas has given up 59 points and now Wilson gets to absolutely feast on them. I think his price should be way higher but let’s roll. A Seahawks stack is almost a MUST in cash lineups.
Dak Prescott, Dallas Cowboys at Seattle Seahawks (FD: $8,500, DK: $7,200)
In the first two weeks of the season, the Seahawks have given up an average of 424 passing yards. Their rush defense has actually been solid so that leads me to Dak and the passing game. This game is shaping up to be a shootout from the get-go after that amazing 4th quarter comeback in week 2. Looking on the outside, I love Dak and Amari this week. Cooper has seen 23 targets so far this season and love that for this pairing in week 3. Dak already has 716 passing yards in 2 weeks and looks to build on that.
Justin Herbert, Los Angeles Chargers vs Carolina Panthers (FD: $7,200, DK: $5,900)
With the craziness that is the Tyrod Taylor saga, we have Justin Herbert who is getting his second start of the season. In week 2 Herbert threw for 311 yards, 1 passing touchdown and 1 rushing touchdown. Carolina’s defense has given up 65 points in 2 games and this could be a massive game for Herbert. His price is a little more value on DK so make sure to put him with Ekeler and possibly Keenan Allen if you are stacking them. Josh Kelley could be a sneaky RB pick to while people are taking Ekeler.
Other QBs: Mitch Trubisky (FD: $7,500, DK: $5,700), Aaron Rodgers (FD: $7,900, DK: $6,500), Kyler Murray (FD: $8,400, DK: $6,800), Ryan Tannehill (FD: $7,400, DK: $5,900)
NFL DFS Week 3
Austin Ekeler, Los Angeles Chargers vs Carolina Panthers (FD: $7,500, DK: $6,800)
Ekeler comes in to this game as the starting RB, but a little caution since Josh Kelley is getting usage as well. Regardless of that, you conceivably could have both of these guys in this week against the worst defense against the run so far. The Panthers’ defense have given up an average of 41.2 FPPG to opposing RBs and both could feast in this one. If you’re opposed to that, I would look at Ekeler as Cash and Kelley as GPP/Tournament options.
Kenyan Drake, Arizona Cardinals vs Detroit Lions (FD: $6,500, DK: $6,000)
What more can I say about this game? As of the writing of this article, this game has the 2nd highest over/under at 55 FP. Kenyan Drake is absolutely loving this fast-paced offense. With the threat of Murray running and throwing, Drake as been able to rack up 146 yards and 1 TD. He’s also involved in the passing game. This could be a fantastic game if you are not paying up high on RBs this week.
Miles Sanders, Philadelphia Eagles vs Cincinnati Bengals (FD: $7,400, DK: $6,400)
After missing Week 1, Sanders busted through for 20 rushes and 95 yards and a TD and 3 receptions for 36 Yards as well. He now comes in with the 2nd best match-up against a Bengals’ D that have given up an average of 35.5 FPPG to the opposing RBs. He may lose some touches to Boston Scott but this is Miles Sanders’ team and he might absolutely dominate here.
Other RBs: Chris Carson (FD: $7,700, DK: $6,600), Joshua Kelley (FD: $5,900, DK: $5,000), Melvin Gordon (FD: $6,500, DK: $5,800), James Conner (FD: $7,100, DK: $6,700)
NFL DFS Week 3
Amari Cooper, Dallas Cowboys at Seattle Seahawks
As stated above in the Dak writeup, I LOVE Cooper this week. According to the match-up tool, Cooper is the #1 WR to target this week against the Seahawks who are giving up 55 FPPG against opposing WRs. With Cooper lining up on the outside, and the outside defenders getting beat a lot this year, Cooper very well could score the most amount of FP out of WRs this week. Amari has 16 receptions on 23 targets for 181 yards in 2 week so far this year. Sadly he doesn’t have a TD yet, but should be able to take care of that column this weekend.
DeAndre Hopkins, Arizona Cardinals vs Detroit Lions (FD: $8,500, DK: $7,900)
What needs to be said about Hopkins that you don’t already know? This Cards/Lions game is currently at 55 O/U and Hopkins should account for a decent amount of those points. In 2 games in 2020, Nuk has 22 catches on 25 targets for 219 and 1 TD. I wouldn’t be surprised to see him get paydirt a couple of times in this game. Christian Kirk has been ruled out for this game so that means some more targets to be had. If you’re using Hopkins, you need to have Murray in there with him because it’s going to be a HUGE weekend.
Corey Davis, Tennessee Titans at Minnesota Vikings (FD: $5,300, DK: $5,200)
The Titans come in with the 2nd best match-up against an atrocious Vikings’ defense that is allowing 44.8 FPPG to the WR position. AJ Brown has already been ruled out for the game so that gives us 2 viable options at WR. Corey Davis and Adam Humphries. In 2 games this year, Davis has 10 receptions on 13 targets for 137 yards and a TD. I think Davis could go under-owned here this weekend and we could take advantage of this pricing. I wouldn’t be surprised to see him go for 5 catches and at least 1 TD against the Vikings.
Other WRs: CeeDee Lamb (FD: $5,600, DK: $5,400), Adam Humphries (FD: $4,600, DK: $3,900), Tyler Lockett (FD: $6,800, DK: $6,400), DK Metcalf (FD: $6,500, DK: $6,500), Allen Robinson (FD: $6,900, DK: $6,200), Terry McLaurin (FD: $6,700, DK: $5,900), Darius Slayton (FD: $5,500, DK: $4,900), Julian Edelman (FD: $6,500, DK: $6,200)
NFL DFS Week 3
Travis Kelce, Kansas City Chiefs at Baltimore Ravens (FD: $7,800, DK: $7,000)
Kelce is the most expensive TE on the slate and on the Monday Night game. The Ravens’ defense are giving up 6th most amount of fantasy points to TE position with 17.1 FPPG. The downside of the Chiefs’ offense is they have so many weapons that anyone can have a big game. The Chiefs are currently the underdogs in this game and could be poised to throw the ball a ton to play catch up. In 2 games this season Kelce has 15 receptions on 20 targets for 140 yards and 2 TDs. He’s Mahomes’ most reliable target and we could see a big game for Kelce under the lights on Monday night.
Tyler Higbee, Los Angeles Rams at Buffalo Bills (FD: $6,100, DK: $5,900)
We were all over Higbee last week and he didn’t disappoint. He was targeted 5 times in week 2 and hauled in every target for 54 yards and 3 TDs. Now, he will most likely be a very popular pick to some fish DFS players who only see his 3 TDs and nothing else, but we like him for other reasons. While the Bills have to contend with Jared Goff and Robert Woods, Higbee could be another goal-line threat and can score 3 TDs on any given week. In 2 weeks Higbee has 8 receptions on 9 targets for 94 yards and 3 TDs. He’s more of a GPP/Tournament pick but his price isn’t where it should be and we can take advantage of that until it catches up to his production. Do I trust him in cash? I’m not 100% sold on him there, but with time that will come.
Drew Sample, Cincinnati Bengals at Philadelphia Eagles (FD: $4,800, DK: $3,500)
C.J. Uzomah is out for the season after tearing his ACL and Drew Sample is the next man up. I absolutely love his price on both sites, especially on DraftKings. With so many mouths to feed in Cincy, the defense will be busy and Sample could be overlooked here. The Eagles’ defense has given up the 4th most FPPG to TEs at 18.8 FP. After Uzomah went down in Week 2 we saw Sample reel in 7 catches on 9 targets for 45 yards. He might be more of a GPP/Tournament option this week, but he’s so cheap we are able to pay up at almost every other position and I’m really digging this match-up for him.
Other TEs: Mark Andrews (FD: $7,300, DK: $6,000), Jared Cook (FD: $6,600, DK: $5,500), Noah Fant (FD: $5,800, DK: $5,400), TJ Hockenson (FD: $5,400, DK: $5,300), Jonnu Smith (FD: $5,600, DK: $5,200), Jordan Reed (FD: $5,300, DK: $4,000)

REMEMBER: These are lineups we use, but feel free to pick and choose plays and make your own lineups. Don’t ALWAYS follow these as they don’t hit 100% of the time. We do use these but sometimes late scratches happen and it’s too late to update the lineup. Good luck and bring home the bacon.
