Jordan Howard, RB, Chicago Bears @ Arizona Cardinals
DraftKings Price: $6,500
Howard is priced right at RB10 this week on Sunday’s main slate but finds himself a great value at a $3,000 discount compared to Alvin Kamara. This matchup is primed for a pound the rock game script with shutdown corner Patrick Peterson likely to cover Allen Robinson all day and the Cardinals offense only being able to muster 6 points on offense through two weeks.
Howard should see close to 30 touches in this game with heavy usage on the ground and has actually been a pleasant surprise in the passing game so far this season. The Cardinals have given up the most fantasy points per game to opposing RB’s so far this season with an average of 210 total yards from scrimmage and 2 rushing TD’s per game. If you can’t quite fit Kamara into your budget in lineups this week, Howard is a great RB1 bargain buy.
