Digging In The Crates

Week 3

(DraftKings Main Slate)



Derek Carr @ Titans ($5,900)

If you had a chance to watch Josh Allen pick apart the Titans week 2, it was the look of a Super Bowl squad. Derek Carr and Davante Adams will get a chance to feast without Tennessee’s top corner Kristian Fulton week 3 on the road. Adams will be popular but adding Josh Jacobs to the stack is a good way to differentiate in tournaments.



Joe Flacco vs. Bengals ($5,300)

Joe Flacco has dropped back 103 times, and thrown for over 300 yards in the last two weeks. He is holding his own in the fantasy world. He targeted rookie Garrett Wilson 14 times Week 2, as their early, and temporary rapport forms. It’s certainly not the highest total on the board (45 o/u) but for his price and volume, he’s worth it. Using Bengals pass catchers, or Joe Mixon in a stack makes perfect sense.




Running Backs



David Montgomery vs. Texans ($5,900)

David Montgomery rushed for 122 yards week two, commanding 50% of the back field snaps for the Bears. The touchdowns have yet to come, but they will. Monty will be leaned on heavily again, as the passing game and Justin Fields is suspect. Ironically, the Bears have been getting crushed on the ground as well.



Dameon Pierce @ Bears ($5,000)

Lovie Smith has agreed that Dameon Pierce should be much more involved in the Texans offense a week ago, and his 16 touches corroborated that story. He’ll get a Bears run defense Week 3 that is allowing 189 yards rushing per game. His hands need work, but the carries will be there. I’ll have lineups with David Montgomery and Dameon Pierce in them together to allow me to spend at wide receiver.




Wide Receivers



Garrett Wilson vs. Bengals ($5,400)

Joe Flacco zeroed in on Wilson week two as he continues to sling, and it should be no different week 3 at home. Wilson caught 8-of-14 targets, for 102 yards, and two touchdowns. He’s third on the team in snaps and first in targets. His teammates have compared the tenth pick in this past Draft to Justin Jefferson. Let’s hope so at his current cost, because if he is, his price is only going up.



Curtis Samuel vs. Eagles ($5,100)

Curtis Samuel made the Crate sheet last week, and his price is still affordable despite catching 7-of-9 targets with a touchdown. That is back to back 20 Fantasy Point burgers for “Waldo”. While Terry McLaurin commands plenty of attention from defenses, Samuel can move around with less attention paid on him. My guess is that wont be the case for long. We have to firmly consider using Samuel in a “Revenge” game with Caron Wentz.




Tight Ends



Irv Smith @ Lions ($3,100)

Finally! Big Irv has been eased into the Vikings more pass happy offense. Smith caught 5-of-8 targets with a touchdown week 2. His routes run rate increased to 60% and his price has remained depressed. Kirk Cousins is going to light up the Lions, and Irv will be a part of the story line. He’s an excellent salary saver this week to play alone, or in Vikings stacks.



Defense/Special Teams



Panthers vs. Saints ($2,600)
