Before jumping into the DraftKings pricing and value plays, let’s look back on last week’s lineup and how I fared.

Here is the lineup I entered into DraftKings free contest. As always, this contest only includes Sunday games. The Thursday, Sunday night, and Monday games are excluded.
QB: Deshaun Watson
RB: Leonard Fournette
RB: Jerick McKinnon
WR: DeAndre Hopkins
WR: Golden Tate
WR: Adam Thielen
TE: David Njoku
Flex: JuJu Smith-Schuster
D/ST: Baltimore Ravens
This lienup finished the day with 154.4 points total. There were five 20 points scorers in Watson, both running backs, Tate and the defense. The problem was the rest of the lineup disappointed. Even in Watson’s big game Hopkins was limited and salvaged the day with a touchdown. Smith-Schuster saw his lowest targets of the season and finished with 32 yards on three catches. Njoku was the biggest disappointment with only two points. Remind me to stay away from the Browns players.
This week it looks like DraftKings might be adjusting to the injuries and season trends. The two teams on bye, Detroit and Houston, should not impact decisions much.
