Daily Fantasy Sports is one of the most popular forms of fantasy football you’ll find. There are plenty of sites to choose from but, the most popular by far is DraftKings.com.
Upside is everything when setting your roster on DK. Finding those hidden gems with low ownership totals and potential for a huge performance can take hours of research and analyzing. Luckily for you, we do a lot of the leg work for you.
Each week we will be bringing you players we have found on the Sunday main slate that present great value based on their price, potential ownership percentage and big-game upside. Don’t forget to also check out our weekly DFS videos for additional players and more insight. Let’s get to it!
Tyrod Taylor, QB, Cleveland Browns at New Orleans Saints
DraftKings Price: $5,900
Taylor makes our list for the second week in a row. The Browns ended their losing streak in Week 1 in only a way the Browns could end a losing streak by tying with the Steelers. Taylor finished last week with 24.6 points on DK despite throwing for only 197 yards, 1 TD and 1 INT. Taylor’s scoring duality continues to be his key to success in fantasy as he rushed for 77 yards and 1 TD on the ground.
This week, Taylor and the new-look Browns will take their breakout tour to the friendly confines of the dome in New Orleans. Weather won’t be an issue this week for Taylor and he gets a Saints defense that was just embarrassed in Week 1 by Ryan Fitzpatrick and the Buccaneers. FitzMagic, who was our deep sleeper pick last week on DK, put up a ridiculous 45.3 fantasy points completing 21-of-28 passes for 417 yards and 4 TD’s while rushing for 36 yards and another score. Taylor is a great bet for another big day as his job security is considered week-to-week with Baker Mayfield waiting in the wings.
