DraftKings Value Plays and Busts for NFL Week 1 (2021)

Jalen Hurts 978E5F6B

Quarterback: Jalen Hurts ($6,400) at Atlanta Hawks/ Bake Mayfield at Kansas City Chiefs ($5,900) I'm giving you two options here because Jalen Hurts is bordering on not being a value, but let's start with him. In the three games as a DraftKings starter, he scored 23, 24, and 41 points despite sub 55% completion percentages and a 5/2 pass TD to INT ratio for those games. Basically, if he has a repeat performance, his floor will keep you in head-to-head games and his upside will place you in tournaments. He gets the trainwreck Atlanta defense in a dome with much better weapons than he had last year. I'm a buyer. Baker is your bottom-barrel option. His upside is always limited because of the run-first Browns, but against a Kansas City defense that was bad against the pass, in a game that is likely a shootout, I think Baker hits 300 yards and outperforms his valuation.
