Here are some key picks you should consider for this week’s DFS contests:
Patrick Mahomes QB, Chiefs
(FD $9,000/DK $7,000)
He is the top-priced option for good reason. With an outstanding arsenal of weapons, the sophomore tossed 50 touchdowns during the regular season and now faces a pass defense that ranked 20th this year. Yes, please!
Nick Foles QB, Eagles
(FD $7,400/DK $5,400)
He is the ultimate pay-down at the position, especially when you figure he will be throwing all day in an effort to keep pace with the high-flying Saints. Garbage-time points count, too.
Marlon Mack RB, Colts
(FD $7,300/DK $5,800)
Mack proved his mettle last week with a strong performance against a tough Houston defense. Now he faces the worst-ranked run defense in the Chiefs, which allows almost 140 rushing yards per game and 19 touchdowns on the ground.
Josh Reynolds WR, Rams
(FD $5,600/DK $4,500)
You have to pay down somewhere to afford some studs in your lineup, and Reynolds is in a great spot. He has seen ample red zone-targets replacing Cooper Kupp, and the Cowboys rank 22nd in coverage against the opposition’s third wideout.
Ted Ginn WR, Saints
(FD $4,500/DK $4,400)
Another great pay-down here, especially on FanDuel — where he is priced at the minimum. The Eagles rank 22nd against the opposing WR2, and he always has been the reliable deep threat for Drew Brees.
Eric Ebron TE, Colts
(FD $6,600/DK $5,500)
You certainly can pay up for Travis Kelce, but Ebron has also been a reliable target for his quarterback and is a touchdown machine. It also helps that the Chiefs ranked 25th in coverage against tight ends this season.
