FantasyDraft Core Plays & Cheat Sheet - NFL DFS Contests 2019

Week 3 NFL DFS Core Plays & Cheat Sheet for FantasyDraft

Welcome to the FC Insights Core Plays and Cheat Sheet Article for FantasyDraft.

In this post, we will be breaking down our top options and plays for FantasyDraft for each DFS week of the 2019-2020 NFL DFS season.

In this article, I am going to give you my four top players for FantasyDraft as well as my cheat sheet. My cheat sheet will include any player that I have more than 15% exposure to as of this writing on FantasyDraft.

Last Weeks Results

  1. Jared Goff (20.12 fantasy points)
  2. Josh Jacobs (9.90 fantasy points)
  3. John Brown (14.20 fantasy points)
  4. Mark Andrews (28.20 fantasy points)

Core Plays

RB-Dalvin Cook-$14,600

Cook has been one of the best if not the best running back in the NFL to start the season. Through the first two weeks, Cook leads the NFL in rushing yards with 265 and rushing touchdowns with three. Cook has produced at least 29 fantasy points in each of those games. While this kind of production may seem like it is coming out of the blue for Cook it is not as he has always produced big numbers when healthy the issue is he has rarely been healthy until this season. This week I am expecting another huge game from Cook as he takes on a Raiders team that allowed the third-most rushing yards per game and ninth-most fantasy points per game to running backs last season.

WR-Nelson Agholor-$7,800

I am eating the Agholor chalk this week and I don’t really see why you shouldn’t. Agholor is too cheap with DeSean Jackson and Alshon Jeffery both expected to be out. Last week with both of those players on the sideline for 99.9% of the game, Agholor saw 11 targets and turned those targets into eight catches for 107 yards and a score. The Lions are also a great match-up for Agholor as Agholor works primarily out of the slot and the Lions struggle to cover slot receivers.

WR-Larry Fitzgerald-$10,100

Old man Fitzgerald just continues to get it done. Fitzgerald has seen double-digit targets in each of the Cardinals first two games and has turned those targets into 13 catches for 217 yards and a score. Fitzgerald has at least 18 fantasy points in each of those games and I really don’t see why he doesn’t have that kind of performance this week in a game against the Panthers that is projected to be an extremely fast-paced and high scoring game.

TE-Mark Andrews-$8,900

I was super high on Andrews last week and he paid off for me and I am just as high on him this week. Andrews really has been that good through the first two games of the season. Andrews has at least eight catches for 100 yards and a score in each game and is averaging a position high 28 fantasy points per game. Andrews has not only been great to start the season but he is in a third straight elite match-up. Last season the Chiefs allowed the most fantasy points per game to the position and while they have been better against them this season they have not been great allowing over eight catches and 70 receiving yards per game to the position.
