Reading Between the Lines:

Week 1

In this article, we will take a look at some players you may have missed while filling out your line ups on Draft Kings or Fan Duel. Hopefully, this article will show you some players who based on their price should give you a high return and help you win your games each week.

Zach Ertz– (DK $3,200)You are reading it correctly; Zach Ertz is only $3,200 on Draft Kings. While he normally starts out slow to the season, it should be different this year with the trade of Jordan Matthews to Buffalo. In 2016 Matthews was the comfort blanket for Carson Wentz, but with him gone expect to take over that role. In

In 2016 Matthews was the comfort blanket for Carson Wentz, but with him gone expect to take over that role. In games last season against the Redskins, Ertz averaged seven receptions for 88 yards and without Matthews he had 15 receptions in the game. Both of these numbers to go along with Alshon Jeffery getting the Josh Norman coverage mean good things for Ertz in week one.

DeShone Kizer (DK $4,800)

The good thing about Hugh Jackson waiting so long to finally jettison Brock Osweiler is the fact Draft Kings put out their week one pricing before Kizer was named the starter. So, when you see a deal like this one what else can you do but eat until you throw up. While it is almost a certainty the Browns are going to lose this game big, Blake Bortles has shown garbage time equals fantasy goodness for quarterbacks and their pass catchers. With the revamped offensive line is rated number two by Pro Football Focus blocking, Kiser will have ample time to find those receivers.

Larry Fitzgerald (DK $5,900) What do Larry Fitzgerald and the Patriots from Thursday have in common? They both start off fast

What do Larry Fitzgerald and the Patriots from Thursday have in common? They both start off fast

What do Larry Fitzgerald and the Patriots from Thursday have in common? They both start off fast then collapse. Well, there is nothing juicier for Fitzgerald starting off against the Lions and the matchup against the slot corner Quadra Diggs who was nothing short of bad last season. At 5’9 and about 190lbs, he is going to be out matched by the 6’3 225lbs Fitzgerald. With the bulk of the Detroit defense lined up to try to stop David Johnson expect Larry Fitzgerald to feast in this game.

Cooper Kupp ($3,700)

Talk about teams who are a wreck right now, the Indianapolis Colts have to be right there at the top. With no Andrew Luck for who knows how long it is going to fall on the Colts defense to stop teams. Wait? What defense? Exactly. The Colts defense is non-existent and the Rams are going to take full advantage. Jared Goff has shown a real connection with Kupp through out the preseason and it is going to show in this game.

Kupp will be targeted early and often and at this price, he will make an outstanding wide receiver three or flex so you can spend up on other positions.
