Week 3 DraftKings Plays – Pickard’s “Pick-Six”

“Glam and casual are both good options.” – Sascha Luss

Sweatpants. Oh boy, what better feeling than getting home and ditching your work clothes for your favorite couple? For women, I can only assume it’s the feeling of taking off your bra and going into casual mode. So let your hair down and let me show you some ways to keep it casual at Draft Kings.

If you do not have a badge on your Draft Kings account, you are eligible to play casual and beginner games. I strongly encourage you to direct your websites here as often as possible. Playing against people at your level is crucial when betting money. They wouldn’t want you to play poker in the World Series of Poker for the first time. Playing casually with friends and acquaintances in a buddy’s basement is always fun. Small buy-ins with decent returns against people closer to your skill level. Listings are limited, fees are reasonable, and you have a higher chance of a return.

Let’s summarize the pictures of the last week again:

1) Derek Carr QB, LV $6,200 – 18.8% ownership and a yield of 18.98 fantasy points. Derek Carr brought up the projected numbers and nothing more. That’s like watching a Mustang drive like an Elantra, efficient but we want to see the power.


2) Chase Edmonds RB, MIA $5,200 – 5.4% ownership and only 5.10 fantasy points. This was a game I thought the Finns would slow down time and let it run. Tua is now the leader in passing yards instead. That was my only bad call for the week.

3) Allen Robinson WR, LAR $5,500 – Breaking back acting call that took away his second TD. 6.8% ownership and a yield of 15.30 points for cheap.

4) Courtland Sutton WR, DEN $6,100 – 22.70 fantasy points with only 8.6% ownership. This was a fantastic addition to a great return to your lineup.

5) Mark Andrews TE, BAL $6,800 – The TE king sits on his throne with his 28.70 fantasy points and only 9.2% of the bettors cooperated.

6) Lions DST, DET $2,600 – 1.2% of us trust Dan Campbell and the Lions DST. We have a great stat line of 5 sacks, 1 INT and a safety. Nicely orchestrated win and 9 points from a cheap pick.

Now let’s take a look at this week’s picks.

1) Joe Burrow QB, CIN $6,600 – Joey Franchise faces an average Jets defense and claims his first W of the season. With all its healthy weapons, this is the perfect match. Burrow is still second in pass attempts, and the Jets are vulnerable on the run. With a balanced attack, RB Mixon also makes for an excellent stack.

2) Josh Jacobs RB, LV $5,400 – Nobody gives RBs more points than the Titans. The Raiders must run the ball and control the game. Jacobs touched the ball 20 times in the last game, and that volume for that price is the perfect pairing. Let him be Hannibal Lecter and eat up the defense like their liver and fava beans with a nice Chianti.


3) David Montgomery RB, CHI $5,900 – Another value play against a defense that gives away fantasy points like it’s a handout. The Bears are currently struggling with their passing game and will rely on ground attack to run over the Texans. Montgomery has 32 carries this season and just ripped through a strong Packers defense with an efficient 122 yards on 15 carries.

4) Stefon Diggs WR, BUF $7,700 – 34.3% target share is all we need to know. Diggs has been targeted 24 times this season for an average of 12 per game. The Bills are hot right now and the connection between QB Josh Allen and his favorite WR is too big to ignore. So pay the price and reap the rewards from Diggs being attacked 5 times in the red zone and 4 times in the end zone.

5) Tyler Higbee TE, LAR $4,500 – Arizona is giving away fantasy points to tight ends like Oprah giving away Toyota. No one has given up more points for position, and no TE has been targeted more than Higbee. The offensive line is atrocious at the moment and Stafford is quick to get the ball to his safety valve. Even with Cooper Kupp and Allen Robinson, Higbee holds a target share of 26.3%.

6) Eagles DST, PHI $2,900 – Big Game Slay. That’s it; this is the attribution. What more do you want? This guy was Kirk Cousins’ top receiver last week. Paste Carson Wentz here as this year’s Ryan Fitzmagic meme. Yes, he throws a lot of meters, but he also turns the ball around. The Eagles are 10th against QBs and 13th against WRs for fantasy points. The longest game against them is 27 yards. Lock it up.
