DFS DraftKings Cash Game Breakdown 2018 Week 3
Week 3 looks like a fun slate, two extremely high totaled games in San Francisco at Kansas City and also New Orleans at Atlanta. The San Fran KC game is one of the highest totaled NFL games that we have seen in a long time topping out at 57 at some sports books. I think the majority of DFS Gold Subscribers should look that way in cash games in terms of roster construction with the Falcons Saints game sprinkled in.
Deshaun Watson (6,100)
Flipping around between Watson and Jimmy G wrote up Jimmy G the last two weeks so in effort not to be redundant I’m going to go Watson but to me it’s pretty much a coin flip. Watson put up 26 Draftkings points in a poor game environment last week versus the Texans. The Texans offensive line is putrid but so is the Giants pass rush. New Giants Defensive coordinator James Bettcher has a penchant for blitzing, and will likely blitz at certain points forcing Watson off the spot, and to make plays with his legs. Overall like the spot for Watson here should be able to make cash game value.
Kareem Hunt (6,000)
Love Kareem Hunt in this spot highest totaled game on the slate. Chiefs are a 7 point favorite at home. Chiefs have one of the best home field advantages in football at Arrowhead. Hunt has not been involved in the passing game but with this game script and being a seven point favorite we are looking for the Chiefs to be playing with the lead and pounding Hunt downhill. We are getting a dramatic discount of almost a thousand dollars off Hunts Week 1 price tag of (6,900) seems like a good buy low spot.
Cooper Kupp (4,900)
Kupp is in a great spot at this price tag. Jared Goff and Cooper Kupp have a great rapport. Goff is consistently looking for Kupp in the red area. Kupp is a possession receiver who does most of his work out of the slot, so with the PPR upside combined with the touchdown equity a notch below 5k he is just to cheap for Kupp in cash. The Rams face the Chargers in week 3 and the Chargers implied team total is 27.5.
George Kittle (4,500)
Kittle should finally make due this week. The 49ers have a favorable game script in which vegas has them playing from behind in the highest totaled game on the slate. As of right now it looks like the Chiefs will once again be without all world Safety Eric Berry which should also benefit Kittle. Chiefs 31st in DVOA against the tight end position in Berry’s absence.
The Vikings are 16 point favorites against the lowly Buffalo Bills and “lowly” is an understatement. This Bills team is bad. Bad enough that Vontae Davis actually quite at half time last week like up an retired. The Bills should turn the ball over multiple times in this game Josh Allen holds on to the ball to long and struggles to get through his reads very bad recipe for a blitz happ defense.
