DFS Dreamers & Fantasy Streamers: Contrarian GPP and Deep Sleeper Plays for Week 4

It looks like Dez Bryant (knee) won’t make the trip to Santa Clara to face the San Francisco 49ers. His absence instantly puts all of the Dallas wide outs into the streamer conversation. Niners slot man Jimmie Ward (quadriceps) is unlikely to play which is even more good news for Cole Beasley, already the team leader in targets, receptions, and recieving yards. Meanwhile, Terrance Williams caught all four of his targets last week against the Bears for 88 yards, but put the ball on the ground after a 47-yard gainer. If you need to get real deep, check out Brice Butler.

A number of strong values this week will allow DFS players to pay all the way up for Cam Newton at the Falcons. Meanwhile, those looking to save a little bit at quarterback will often find themselves on Cousins hosting the Browns. To get contrarian I’m going all the way down to the minimum with Brian Hoyer. Jay Cutler (finger) was limited in Wednesday’s practice and sat out Thursday, leading one to assume he’s not going to start.

Tomorrow’s Newspaper: Dexter McCluster and Week 4 Waiver Wire Prescience

Dexter McCluster displayed good efficiency last season, albeit for a different team. Given the unfortunate rash of injuries in San Diego, he needed to be signed as insurance. Melvin Gordon fits the mold of an effective three-down workhorse, but McCluster’s 98th-percentile College Target Share will ensure that he at least contributes in the passing game.

Jack Doyle’s 13th-ranked Hog Rate (targets per snap ratio) of 10.6-percent is promising because it shows us that the team is utilizing him when he’s on the field. Sure both of his TDs in Week 1 came after Allen was knocked out of the game, after scoring a TD of his own. But he’s proven to be a big part of this offense in the season’s early going, seeing his Snap Share and Target Share increase from Week 1.

DFS Dreamers & Fantasy Streamers: Contrarian GPP and Deep Sleeper Plays for Week 3

Ryan Tannehill is the top QB streamer this week and is going for a reduced price on DraftKings and FanDuel. Blame the Browns for the meh 42.5 combined total from Vegas. The Dolphins won’t have Arian Foster (groin) and are going to mix and match to see what works in the backfield.

I’m looking at Jarvis Landry, Travis Benjamin, and Stefon Diggs as the popular, cost-effective receivers in DFS. That leaves room for someone in the higher salary bucket. While I don’t see a clear chalk option in that group, Allen Robinson is being viewed by many a logical bounce back candidate against Baltimore, who were just roasted by rookie Corey Coleman for 104 yards and two scores on five catches.

A Cliché Fantasy Football Week 3 Start/Sit Column

Who are the best Start/Sits for Week Three? RotoUnderworld offers metrics-driven plays that will help you recover from the chaotic Week Two results.

LeSean McCoy is a great contrarian play in week 3. Buffalo returns home and faces an Arizona team that only tallied 30 percent of their sacks on the road in 2015. Under new offensive coordinator Anthony Lynn, McCoy will be featured both in the running and passing game in a must-win game for Buffalo’s playoff chances.

Week 2 Fantasy Football Waiver Wire: Chasing Quincy Enunwa’s Skyhigh Upside

Quincy Enunwa breakout alert. The RotoUnderworld Team provides ten players, including Enunwa, to target across fantasy football formats.

Dennis Pitta possesses historical production with Flacco. Remember, Gary Barnidge came out of obscurity to “be a thing” in 2015, Pitta has the opportunity to provide a similar impact in 2016.
