Moving onto Week 4 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 v PIT ($5,600)
Stroud is the most exciting C.J. since Pamela Anderson in Baywatch and he once again presents excellent value at the quarterback position for your DraftKings lineups. The rookie is priced up only $300 from the trouncing of their divisional rivals in Jacksonville last week – that’s $1 for every yard he is averaging per contest so far this season…well, almost. The overall No.2 pick in this year’s draft is averaging 302 passing yards each week and now gets to take on a Steelers defense, at home, who were lit up for 324 yards by Jimmy G in their own backyard on MNF. Stroud is another strong start at only $5600 this week.
Jameis Winston v TB ($5,300)
It’s been a long time since Famous Jameis was eating W’s in Tampa Bay, but he’s one of the most competent back-ups in the league and will draw the start this week with Derek Carr still in the League’s concussion protocol. We’re 4 years removed from the former No.1 overall pick tossing 33 TDs, 30 INTs and over 5,000 yards but Winston can still provide managers with fantasy gold…as well as the odd interception. He’ll get to take on his old team at home in the dome with the Bucs giving up an average of 277 yards through the air to opposing QBs, 27th ranked in the league. At $5300 Jameis could be finger lickin’ good for your lineups.
Bryce Young ($5,200) or Andy Dalton ($5,100) v MIN
I have both Carolina signal callers in the final slot of the Bargains article this week, with either presenting great value against a Vikings defense that gave Justin Herbert his first career game of 400+ yards in week 3. Bryce Young is no Justin Herbert, but he has returned to full practise and looks set to regain his starters role from Andy Dalton. The Red Rocket is undoubtedly the better passer between the two Panthers, but Young offers excellent fantasy value with his legs. Adam Thielen has continued to show there’s life in the old dog yet and gives either of these QBs a real option for their first reads. Whoever gets the nod, I’m happy taking the shot.
