Moving onto Week 3 of the 2023 season, and we are going to give you some DraftKings bargain bin plays for the week. These are plays that are on the ultra-value/ GPP contrarian side. So generally avoid these plays in cash game lineups, but in GPPs- especially big fields go for it!
You can find all of our DFS content here, and be ready for the week.

C.J. Stroud @JAX ($5,300)
In his first two weeks as an NFL quarterback Stroud has attempted a staggering 91 passes. Third only to Matt Stafford with 93 and league leader Mac Jones who has thrown 96 times in the Patriots opening matchups. In his home debut against the Colts in week two, Stroud not only tagged on an additional 138 passing yards to his week one stat line, he also added his first and second TDs as a professional signal caller. Facing a Jags defense that gave up 223 yards to fellow rookie Anthony Richardson in week one and 305 yards to Patrick Mahomes at home last week, Stroud is a strong value play at $5300 this week.
Desmond Ridder @DET ($5,000)
Ridder is the polar opposite to CJ Stroud in terms of passing attempts through the Falcons first two outings. Ridder however is also polar opposite in wins as he and the Falcons sit 2-0 atop the NFC South after running out victors (pun very much intended) over the Panthers and Packers. Atlanta have so far ran 71 rushing plays on the season, attempting just 50 passing plays. Only the Zach Wilson led Jets have thrown the ball less. That said, week two saw a 78% increase in passing attempts for the sophomore quarterback and a road game in Detroit with an over/under of 46 points may force Arthur Smith to once again rely more on the arm of Ridder, and less on the legs of Bijan Robinson and Tyler Allgeier.
