The Fantasy Bye Week Staff Writer
DFS Week 7 Plays
Hopefully the Bye Week faithful is ready for another installment of my DFS Plays of the Week for week 7! Ready or not, here it comes.
Premium Plays ($7,500 or more)
Leonard Fournette (JAX) $7,900: Fournette comes at a steep price this week, but he’ll be well worth it. Mario and I discussed how we both think the Jags will go up early on the Bengals last podcast. If this happens it will be all Fournette in the second half. That would be great news against the second worst rush defense in the league!
Dalvin Cook (MIN) $8,300: : We’re putting a ton of stock into the running backs this week, and I am completely fine with that! Cook is an elite rusher going up against one of the worst rushing defenses in the league. Let’s not over think this one. Plug him in, sit back and enjoy!
Solid Starts ($6,000-$7,400)
Josh Jacobs (OAK) $6,700: How about one more running back for good measure? Jacobs will be used often against this weak Green Bay rush defense. The trend this week might just be good running backs up against terrible rush defenses…
DJ Chark (JAX) $6,600:Our boy Baby Chark had a rough game last week even though we played him. It’s ok DJ we forgive you! He’ll be up against Cinci’s left cornerback, Kirkpatrick, for most of the game. Kirkpatrick is allowing almost 17 pts to opposing receivers. I’m looking for Chark to do a little bit better than that!
Cheap Plugs ($5,900 and under)
Buffalo DEF $5,500: This is turning into a theme here on the weekly dfs plays. Whatever defense is up against the Miami dolphins… Play them! I mean we played the Redskins last week and we didn’t do half bad. This should be a fun one for us!
Larry Fitzgerald (ARI) $5,600: Old man river is still doing his thing. Fitz is running 92% of his routes out of the slot, and that is a great thing for him this week against the Giants. NYG allow the second most points to opposing slot receivers at 28.9 pts per game.
