Raheem Mostert, RB, San Francisco 49ers @ Arizona Cardinals
DK Price: $3,800
Mostert has emerged as a serious threat out of the 49ers backfield over the last two weeks. Alfred Morris is clearly falling out of favor here and Matt Breida has been battling injuries ever since training camp. Meanwhile, Mostert has averaged an incredible 7.8 yards per attempt on 19 carries over the last two weeks and now gets a prime matchup against the Cardinals.
The Cardinals have given up the most fantasy points per game to running backs this season. They’ve allowed a league high 137 rushing yards per game on average and have given up multiple TD’s to RB’s in 4-of-7 games this season as well.
Mostert would become more of a lock if Matt Breida was forced to miss the game entirely, but at a bargain price, Mostert makes for a great value as an upside RB2 or cheap Flex option who could have a true breakout this week.
