Quarterback

Stafford is projected for 35.59 pass attempts, 301.36 passing yards, and 2.53 passing touchdowns. Over the past 4 weeks, Stafford has averaged 24.3 points on DraftKings and 22.8 points on FanDuel.

In the Range of Outcomes Tab, Stafford has a 30.9% chance to score 29.8 points on DraftKings and a 35.1% chance to score 26.6 points on FanDuel. Stafford is a great target for cash games and a guy you can build around in tournaments.

Jalen Hurts – DraftKings $6,900 FanDuel $8,300

Jalen Hurts comes in as the second highest projected quarterback on both sites at 96.61 on DraftKings and 96.51 on FanDuel. Over his last four weeks, Hurts is averaging 26.4 points on DraftKings and 25.4 on FanDuel.

Hurts is projected for 34.67 pass attempts, 254.27 passing yards, 9.52 rushing attempts, 48.59 rushing yards, and 2.28 total touchdowns. Philadelphia has a team total of 25.75 against Detroit.

In the Range of Outcomes Tab, Hurts has a 34.6% chance to score 28.6 points on DraftKings and a 35% chance to score 27.2 points on FanDuel. Hurts continues to be a guy that offers a rushing floor and just enough through the air with a massive volume.

Running Back

Alvin Kamara – DraftKings $8,700 FanDuel $8,400

Alvin Kamara comes in as the highest rated running back on both sites at 87.5 on DraftKings and 86.45 on FanDuel. Kamara offers a high floor averaging 25.7 total touches over his past four weeks.

Kamara is projected for 18.48 rushing attempts, 78.5 rushing yards, 4.73 receptions, 42.16 receiving yards, and 1.05 total touchdowns. Kamara has been the main cog in the Saints’ offense and the Study Hub expects that to continue this week.

In the Range of Outcomes Tab, Kamara has a 29.6% chance to score 33.1 points on DraftKings and a 34.6% chance to score 27.2 points on FanDuel. Feel free to plug Kamara into your cash and tournament builds expecting a high floor.

Darrell Henderson – DraftKings $6,500 FanDuel $7,700

Darrell Henderson comes in as the third highest rated running back on DraftKings at 76.45 and the fifth highest on FanDuel at 65.79. Henderson is in the same matchup as Stafford with the massive spread over the Texans.

Henderson is projected for 19.3 rushing attempts, 85.96 rushing yards, 2.71 receptions, 24.21 receiving yards, and 0.98 total touchdowns. Henderson should have high volume in a game where the Rams are in control of the game flow.

In the Range of Outcomes Tab, Henderson has a 38.7% chance to score 26.5 points on DraftKings and a 35.7% chance to score 25.1 points on FanDuel. Henderson will get his volume and will need to get into the end zone to get to his target score in tournaments.

Wide Receiver

Cooper Kupp – DraftKings $9,000 FanDuel $9,200

Cooper Kupp comes in as the highest rated wide receiver on DraftKings at 87.14 and the second highest rated on FanDuel at 85.55. Kupp has been the WR1 for the Rams all season long and comes into this matchup with a market share of 32.65% over his past four weeks.

Kupp is projected for 12 targets, 106.76 receiving yards, and 0.9 receiving touchdowns. Kupp is going to get his volume in a game where the Rams have a team total over 30 points.

In the Range of Outcomes Tab, Kupp has a 20.9% chance to score 34 points on DraftKings and a 15.6% chance to score 29.6 points on FanDuel. Kupp is a top spend up option this week and is viable in cash games and tournaments.

Chris Godwin – DraftKings $6,400 FanDuel $7,200

Chris Godwin comes in as the eighth highest rated wide receiver on DraftKings at 64.61 and the twelfth highest rated on FanDuel at 58.65. Antonio Brown is currently doubtful and Godwin saw 11 targets last week with Brown off the field.

Godwin is projected for 8 targets, 75.99 receiving yards, and 0.51 receiving touchdowns. Godwin could be a go-to target for Brady again this week and Tampa Bay has a team total of 27.75.

In the Range of Outcomes Tab, Godwin has a 25.7% chance to score 26.2 points on DraftKings and a 17.8% chance to score 23.6 points on FanDuel. Godwin grades out as a solid mid range option on both sites and has a high ceiling assuming Antonio Brown is out.

Tight End

Dallas Goedert – DraftKings $4,700 FanDuel $5,900

Dallas Goedert comes in as the highest rated tight end on DraftKings at 63.24 and the second highest rated on FanDuel at 52.56. Goedert should absorb a large percentage of tight end market share for Philadelphia going forward.

Goedert is projected for 4.3 targets, 55.89 receiving yards, and 0.45 receiving touchdowns. If you’re looking for a two man stack, pairing Goedert with Jalen Hurts grades out as a good place to start.

In the Range of Outcomes Tab, Goedert has a 11.1% chance to score 21.1 points on DraftKings and a 5.6% chance to score 19.7 points on FanDuel. Goedert is a solid pay down option at a position that lacks high ceiling options.

Mike Gesicki – DraftKings $5,000 FanDuel $6,300

Mike Gesicki comes in as the seventh highest rated tight end on DraftKings at 39.04 and the fifth highest rated on FanDuel at 38.19. Over the last four weeks, Gesicki has a market share of 19.23%. That is high volume for a player priced where Gesicki is on DraftKings.

Gesicki is projected for 7.5 targets, 56.41 receiving yards, and 0.3 receiving touchdowns. Miami should be in a pass heavy game script with a spread of +13.5 against Buffalo.

In the Range of Outcomes Tab, Gesicki has a 10.7% chance to score 22 points on DraftKings and a 4.4% chance to score 20.9 points on FanDuel. Gesicki is a top mid range target at tight end on both DraftKings and FanDuel.

Good Luck on Sunday!
