DraftHustle’s Top DFS Plays of the week for Fanduel and Draftkings
Josh Allen – BUF vs Raiders
Fanduel - $9,200; Draftkings - $7,900
Josh Allen was horrific on Monday night against the Jets, and he was the main reason they lost the game. I fully expect him to bounce back in week 2 at home against the Raiders. The Bills have the highest Vegas implied team total on the slate (27.75 points) so points will be scored and Josh Allen will be involved in most, if not all of them. He also has plenty of weapons to stack with for cash game and tourney builds.
David Montgomery – DET vs Seahawks
Fanduel - $6,300; Draftkings - $5,800
David Montgomery was by far the lead ball carrier for the Rams in their week 1 victory over the Kansas City Chiefs. He out-touched rookie Jahmyr Gibbs 21 to 9 and has a good matchup in week 2 against the Seattle Seahawks. Seattle gave up 3 rushing TDS to the Rams in week 1, so I like the chances of Montgomery to get at least one score on top his expected carries. He rates as the best points per dollar Rb on this slate, and he can be rostered in all DFS formats.
Stefon Diggs – BUF vs Raiders
Fanduel - $8,000; Draftkings - $8,000
Despite Josh Allen’s poor performance, Stefon Diggs was able to excel in week 1, catching 10 of 12 targets for 102 yards and a TD against a great Jets defense. The Raiders are a significantly better matchup for WRs, and Stefon Diggs is expected to easily dominate the Las Vegas secondary. 100 yards and a score will be the floor for Diggs this week, and he can be stacked easily with Josh Allen.
Travis Kelce – KC vs Jaguars
Fanduel - $8,500; Draftkings - $7,600
If week 1 showed us anything, it’s that Travis Kelce was worthy of a 1st round pick in fantasy drafts, and the Chiefs should give him a blank check and pay him whatever he wants. He is expected to be back for week 2 against the Jaguars and is projected for almost twice as many points as any other TE on the slate. This game has the highest Vegas O/U on the slate which correlates strongly with TE fantasy points scoring. The TE King is back!
Tampa Bay Buccaneers – vs Bears
Fanduel - $4,100; Draftkings - $3,200
Despite having some very explosive weapons on offense, the Chicago Bears are a very good matchup for opposing D/STs. The Packers had 2 forced turnovers, 4 sacks, and a defensive TD in week 1. The Tampa Bay Buccaneers face the Bears in week 2, and I love the matchup for them. Chicago has the 4th lowest Vegas implied team total on the slate, and the game has the 5th lowest Vegas O/U on the slate. Either D/ST is a viable option, but I prefer Tampa.
