DFS Cash Game Breakdown 2020 Week 3
Kyler Murray, ARI
Murray proved on Sunday once again that he is the real deal. He lit up Washington for 286 yards and a score while getting it done on the ground as well. He tallied 67 yards and found the end zone two extra times. His rushing production is on par with Lamar Jackson right now and he's still priced well below the 2019 MVP at just $6,800 on DraftKings. Keep locking him in for cash until DraftKings learns their lesson.
Ryan Fitzpatrick, MIA
This is a week with a lot of value at running back so you shouldn't need to save at quarterback. If you have some elite players that you can't live without playing, Fitzpatrick can help get you there. He came back to life in Week 2 with 328 yards and two scores versus a talented Bills defense. Now he gets Jacksonville in a far easier matchup.
Mike Davis, CAR
Davis is $5,100 on DraftKings and $6,000 on Fanduel, where you get an extra $10,000 to spend on your roster. He's still a far better play on DraftKings because of his pass-catching role and DK's full PPR scoring. Davis filled in for Christian McCaffrey for a portion of Week 2 and racked up eight catches for 74 yards. CMC is a special talent but his offense is also built around throwing to the running back. That won't change even as the team starts Davis for a few weeks while CMC nurses an ankle injury.
Miles Sanders, PHI
Sanders returned to action after missing Week 1 and didn't miss a beat. He carried the ball 20 times for 95 yards and caught three passes for 36 yards. Most importantly, he saw seven total targets while Boston Scott got just three looks. Scott also contributed just four rushes. Sanders is a three-down back and gets the best matchup of the Eagles' season so far. He faces the Bengals in Week 3.
T.Y. Hilton, IND
At 30 years old, Hilton appeared ready to take a back seat to a younger receiver when Parris Campbell broke out in Week 1. Unfortunately, Campbell went down with a significant knee injury that does not have a timetable for returning yet. That should return Hilton to his former, No. 1 receiver in Indy status after two middling weeks. Despite the fantasy bottom line not looking great on either week, Hilton still leads the Colts with 14 targets and 196 air yards, many of which came on a drop on a beautiful deep pass in the end zone. Hilton will bounce back with less competition and betting on him doesn't cost much in DFS this week.
Amari Cooper, DAL
Cooper leads the Cowboys with 23 targets and CeeDee Lamb is second with eight fewer targets. The Cowboys and Cooper face Seattle this week. The Seahawks have played two games and have given up 847 passing yards so far. Play Cooper against Seattle, end of story.
Logan Thomas, WAS
Thomas was quiet in Week 2 with four catches for 26 yards but the signals of a continued breakout were present. He finished with nine targets, only one behind Terry McLaurin for the team-lead. His 62 air yards represented 22% of the team's total air yards. He's only $3,700 this week.
George Kittle, SF
Kittle is only in play if he returns from his knee injury but early reports indicate that will be the case this week. He did not play in Week 2 and his opening week was affected by his injury as well. Kittle posted a league-leading, 28% target share, and a second-best, 26% air yards share in 2019. His competition for targets is going to be nonexistent with Deebo Samuel still on injured reserve. Kittle's price could jump over $7,000 by Week 4 if he decimates the Giants.
The Colts defense is the most expensive player at their position this week and they could still be the best value. They face the lowly Jets, who could be without Le'Veon Bell, Jamison Crowder, and Breshad Perriman. They scored one meaningless touchdown on Sunday versus the 49ers, who suffered a slew of injuries during the game. Now they have to take to the road and face another stout defense in Indianapolis this week.
