DraftKings Cheat Sheet
One Percenter Plays
Isaiah McKenzie, Buffalo Bills vs Detroit Lions – DraftKings: $3,900
Huge fan of swiss army knife position players and McKenzie fits the bill to the T. He officially took over slot receiver duties at the expense of Zay Jones *sigh* and is a jack of all trades. With the Lions coming to town and Jones likely seeing shadow coverage from Darius Slay, McKenzie could be a sweet pivot off Robert Foster who is also in a good match-up.
John Brown, Baltimore Ravens vs Tampa Bay Buccaneers – DraftKings: $4,400
Going out on a limb here because Brown will likely be higher than 5% owned considering his match-up with the Bucs coming to town. However, on paper, this match-up would see more favor for the running game, which has been the norm for the Ravens since Lamar Jackson took over and should keep Brown’s ownership down. I think this is Lamar Jackson’s coming out party in the passing game and Brown stands to benefit.
Randall Cobb, Green Bay Packers @ Chicago Bears – DraftKings: $4,400
Cobb and Aaron Jones are the two key components against the division rival Bears if the Packers want to stay alive for what is now very slim odds for a playoff spot. However, Green Bay has enough respectable receivers to spread out the Bears defense to open up the middle of the field for Cobb and Jones to do some damage in a must-win game.
Kendrick Bourne, San Francisco 49ers vs Seattle Seahawks – DraftKings $3,500
With Pettis’ injury rumored to be more serious than it’s being let on to be, Bourne could step in opposite fellow field-stretcher Marquise Goodwin, who is also questionable but Bourne could see a healthy usage even if Goodwin plays. Be sure to check Pettis’ and Goodwin’s status before the noon games lock, if either misses, Bourne could well be a bargain play.
