DFS Digging In The Crates Daily 2020 Week 14 DraftKings
DraftKings (Main Slate)
Mitchell Trubisky vs. Houston ($5,600)
The Bears are flat out atrocious and have almost become an NFL laughing stock. Thus, the recent quarterback change to Mitch Trubisky. He’s showed us ceiling games before and will face the 21st ranked pass defense of the Texans Sunday at Soldier field. He’s cheap and can get us 3-4 X. Pairing him with Allen Robinson makes and/or Darnell Mooney makes sense given his propensity to target them both close to double digit times each week. He’s a tournament play only and using him with either Mooney ($3,500) or Robinson ($6,800) is a MUST.
Andy Dalton @ Bengals ($5,500)
The motivation for Andy Dalton on the road against his former Bengals team will front and center week 14 as the Cowboys travel to Cincinnati. Dalton looked comfortable week 13 against a strong Ravens front seven in defeat. The Cowboys have too much talent on offense to sputter every week and they’ll get a Bengals pass defense that is among the worst. The Cowboys are three point road favorites and the Red Rifle is CHEAP, and so are his weapons. CeeDee Lamb and Michael Gallup combined for 20 targets in the loss. We call this narrative street in DFS and we have to like the way he looked against Baltimore. I love the cheap stack here in tournaments
Bonus: Jalen Hurts vs. Saints ($5,100)
J.D Mckissic @ 49ers ($4,900)
It does NOT look like Antonio Gibson will be suiting up week 14 and with Peyton Barber being the only viable, between the tackles running back, J.D. McKissic should continue to do what he does. Receive 7-10 targets, and catch most of them. Since week 9 Mckissic has averaged 17 PPR points when targets seven or more times. Two of those games Antonio Gibson was heavily involved. Now that Gibson is doubtful, Alex Smith will rely on him even more in both the running game, and dump offs. He’s a good “one off” salary saver in a game that does not have the ingredients to shoot out.
Melvin Gordon @ Panthers ($5,200)
Melvin Gordon will face a Panthers run defense week 13 that is allowing a shade under 26 PPR points to running backs so far this season. Sign me up. If there is ANY stability in the Broncos offense. He’s a near lock for 15-20 touches. Gordon has consumed the 12th-most carries (149) in the NFL and is averaging the 18th-most yards per carry (4.6). Phillip Lindsay cutting into Gordon’s work load but it is unquestioned who is the lead back. We love volume on the cheap and Gordon is just that sunday.
Bonus: Nyheim Hines @ Las Vegas ($5,200)
CeeDee Lamb @ Bengals ($4,800)
CeeDee Lamb could have finished week 13 with a monster stat line had he pulled in Andy Dalton’s hail mary to end the first half. He still finished with six receptions after being targeted nine times. Using Andy Dalton on the cheap sunday (as stated) makes a ton of sense with the likes of Lamb, Gallup, Cooper. The rookie fits well underneath from the slot in helping Andy Dalton make the intermediate low aDot throws. He’s too cheap and he’ll be landing in my Cowboys tournament stacks week 14
Tyler Boyd vs. Cowboys ($4,900)
In my cheap Cowboys stacks this weekend, i’m going to need a run back. Tyler Boyd is that guy. Particularly if Tee Higgins is unable to go. Like CeeDee Lamb, Boyd is a PPR machine working underneath and he’ll be able to do whatever he wants against a helpless Cowboys defense. Boyd was ejected after his lone reception that went for 72 yards to the house. He’s too cheap for the volume and upside he possesses.
Bonus: T.Y. Hilton @ Raiders ($5,100)
Jordan Reed vs. Washington Football Team ($3,500)
Filling in for George Kittle has been no easy task in 2020 (no task has been easy) but a “healthy” Jordan Reed has been sufficient. We’ll take another stroll down narrative street week 14 where Reed will face his former Washington team. Reed is coming off a 3/32/1 performance and while the numbers aren’t eye popping, it is evident he’s a red zone favorite for Nick Mullens. Now that Deebo Samuel and Brandon Aiyuk are both healthy, the 49ers usage has become more spread out. However, we cant discount Reed’s freakishly athletic frame and athleticism to bail out Mullens.
Dallas Goedert vs. Saints ($4,000)
Simply put, Dallas Goedert is too cheap. He’s had at least six targets in four straight games and has averaged 17 DraftKings points over the last three. Zach Ertz is back and the Eagles love using two tight end sets but Goedert is the younger, more versatile weapon for Jalen Hurts to lean on. The Saints are a good defensive unit but have been middle of the road against Tight Ends so far this season. Sign me up at his price point, low ownership, and upside.
Bonus: Hunter Henry vs. Falcons ($4,400)
Saints @ Eagles $3,800
The Saints have an ELITE all around defense that has allowed the fewest yards per game (288.8) and the fourth-fewest points per game (20.1) on the season, Jalen Hurts may have trouble moving the ball downfield in this tough matchup. Meet Demario Davis, Cam Jordan, and Marshon Lattimore.
Bonus: Washington Football Team ($2,800)
