DK Buffet Week 7: Matchups and Key Stats for the Main Slate
Get a free NFL subscription for 3 days.
When I’m looking into the DFS slate each week, I like to go game by game and identify players or situations that intrigue me. In every game, on every team, there’s a situation that’s relevant for DFS purposes. Whether it’s for a positive or negative reason, doesn’t matter. It informs us of how we should be attacking each slate. Each week, I’m going to go through that process here and give my view on a player or situation based on what we know so far and what we can expect to see in the future.
Baltimore RavensIt wasn’t enough for Michael Crabtree ($5,100) to ruin all of my Amari Cooper shares last year, he had to continue to break my heart last week as he earned nine targets and broke 100 air yards for the first time all season. That came at the expense of John Brown ($5,700) who saw just 53 air yards after earning at least 189 in each of the previous four weeks. Oh, and Willie Snead ($4,000) saw 10 targets for 123 air yards. I’m not sure that I know how to make sense of this receiver corp. They play host to the Saints who have given up spike games to WRs.1 I could see sprinkling a couple of GPP shares, but it’s a situation I’m largely avoiding.
