Jordan Wilkins, RB, Indianapolis Colts
Draft Kings Price: $3,700
If you’re looking to save some cap space in your RB2 or Flex spot, Jordan Wilkins is a player to consider. Marlon Mack is still working his way back from a hamstring injury and Wilkins is expected to get the most run in his absence. While fellow rookie back Nyheim Hines garnered much of the hype entering the season, a nightmarish showing on the field during preseason action quickly shifted the attention to Wilkins.
Indy’s woeful offensive line isn’t going to do any running back many favors. Wilkins showed a versatile skill set in the preseason however and could wind up a safe, effective, short yardage pass catcher out of the backfield for Andrew Luck who likely won’t be ready to sling it like he used to after such a long layoff. Wilkins should be gifted the most opportunity and presents fair upside this week out of all of the sub-$4,000 options on DK
