In a wild two weeks in the NFL, Patrick Mahomes, Ryan Fitzpatrick, and James Conner have been three of fantasy footballs biggest studs. This has allowed those with contrarian approaches to big time payouts on DraftKings. With the slates getting tighter and tighter by the week, here is everything to know about the DraftKings main slate.
Deshaun Watson (v New York Giants) - $6,100
In a week where ownership should be concentrated at the top on Patrick Mahomes, Drew Brees, and Jimmy Garoppolo, Deshaun Watson offers salary relief and ownership leverage in GPPs. While the Giants have only allowed 336 passing yards on the season, they have benefitted from facing weak quarterback competition in Blake Bortles and Dak Prescott. However, they allowed the second-most rushing yard in this span. They're also missing corner Eli Apple. Look for Watson to rip up a weak Giant's secondary and take advantage of available rushing yards.
