Joe Flacco, QB, Baltimore Ravens vs New Orleans Saints
DK Price: $5,400
On the other side of the ball in Baltimore, Joe Flacco also comes in as a supreme value play. Unlike the Ravens, the Saints have given up the absolute most fantasy points per game to QB’s this season on DraftKings. The Saints are giving up an average of 313 passing yards and 2 TD’s per game to opposing QB’s and gave up huge games to both Ryan Fitzpatrick (417/4/0) and Matt Ryan (374/5/0) this season.
Flacco has been a little quiet over the last two weeks but has notched two games this season with over 300 yards passing and 2 TD’s. Flacco has also thrown for at least 236 yards in every game this season and has attempted the second most passes in the league this year.
Loaded with an underrated trio of receivers and a competent pass catching running back on his side, Flacco should have no problem taking whatever he wants from the Saints this week. It also helps that Flacco is going up against Brees who should be able to keep the game highly competitive and may even turn this match into a shootout.
