DFS Values: Draftkings – Week 14
James White (CPP $289) – James White has finally arrived in New England albeit it took a little longer than expected much like it did for Shane Vereen. Widely touted as a Vereen type back with better rushing ability White can really start to make an impact down the stretch if they give him more touches in the run game as opposed to the pass game. Regardless White has emerged as a high upside RB2 in PPR formats like Draftkings and while he has a lower floor than some may be comfortable with he comes in as the best CPP value this week at the running back position. In addition to being the number one value of the week White also has a bargain salary of $4,100 and should be strongly considered for Draftkings lineups this week.
Lesean Mccoy (CPP $309) – Lesean Mccoy has finally found his way in Buffalo and has been on a roll as of late. McCoy heads up our week fourteen rankings for the running back position and also comes in as a top three CPP play making him almost a must start for at least one of your lineups this week. The running back position has been pretty volatile this season so getting that solid point production from that part of your lineup can really affect placement when you are finishing in the money. The Eagles have been lit up by opposing running backs for an average of 110.1 yards on the ground and 45.5 yards through the air so do not be fooled by their mid tier fantasy points against ranking which is due in a large part to facing struggling running backs for most of the season. Start McCoy wherever possible.
Tyrod Taylor (CPP $266) – Taylor will find his way into many Draftkings lineups this week with a plus matchup against a struggling Eagles defense on the schedule. The Eagles outside of their fluke win against the Patriots have been atrocious the past several weeks and should have more than they can handle with Lesean McCoy, Tyrod Taylor and Sammy Watkins to worry about. The Eagles have surrendered the third most fantasy points to opposing signal callers and will in all likelihood make Taylor one of the top value picks of the week when all is said and done. Taylor is a solid Draftkings option due his low CPP and overall salary and should find his way into lineups for those looking for value at the quarterback position. Start Taylor where needed.
Danny Amendola (CPP $388) – With Julian Edelman set to miss at least one more week and Rob Gronkowski set to play only when and if needed Amendola is once again one of the top CPP values of the week. Still given no love Amendola has a bargain of a salary at only $5,200 and will find his way into many lineups this weekend. With Amendola being the only currently healthy and effective receiving weapon outside of the backfield Amendola should get all the targets he can handle. Get Amendola in at least one of your lineups this week.
Devante Parker (CPP $288) – It is becoming increasingly difficult to trust Ryan Tannehill but Parker is a game changing talent and last week proved that even when Tannehill is at his absolute worst Parker can find his way to production. It may take a while for this connection to truly take off but with a plus matchup against a Giants defense surrendering the seventh most fantasy points to opposing defenses Parker is a rock solid play, especially when taking his low overall salary of $4,000 into account. Parker should prove to be a popular play this week after finding the end zone in consecutive weeks and should be favored by bargain hunters. Start Parker where needed.
