NFL DFS Picks Week 16: QB sleepers, values

Jalen Hurts, Philadelphia Eagles at Dallas Cowboys (DK: $7,000 | FD: $8,200)

Coach Doug Pederson in all probability secretly needs he had turned to Hurts earlier this season, because the rookie phenom has been explosive in his two begins for Philly. He posted 23.3 fantasy factors in Week 14 in opposition to the Saints and a whopping 40.8 in Arizona final week. Now he will get a dome recreation in Dallas in opposition to one of many extra disappointing defenses of 2020. RotoQL initiatives Hurts to attain 21.8 fantasy factors in opposition to the Cowboys this weekend with a 40.8-point ceiling. Hearth the rookie up with confidence.

Baker Mayfield, Cleveland Browns at New York Jets (DK: $6,100 | FD: $7,600)

Mayfield has morphed right into a sensational playmaker this season. Six days after practically main the Browns over the Ravens on Monday Evening Soccer with 366 whole yards and three scores, the third-year QB went 27-of-32 for 297 yards and two TDs in opposition to an excellent Giants protection in a 20-6 spanking. After Pittsburgh choked in opposition to the Bengals on Monday, the AFC North may be very a lot in play for the Browns. Count on an enormous statistical recreation for Mayfield in opposition to the lowly Jets, who rank thirtieth in fantasy factors allowed to quarterbacks and have allowed three passing TDs per recreation over the previous three weeks.

Mitchell Trubisky, Chicago Bears at Jacksonville Jaguars (DK: $5,700 | FD: $7,200)

Clearly the Bears ought to have saved Trubisky underneath heart the entire season, as he’s now 5-2 as a starter in 2020. He might not be the longer term in Chicago however he’s positively the current, and there’s no higher reward to a QB than a sunny late-December assembly with the Jaguars. Jacksonville serves up the second-most fantasy factors to QBs and has surrendered 5 passing TDs previously two video games.  

Stocking Stuffer Particular

Andy Dalton, Dallas Cowboys vs. Philadelphia Eagles (DK: $5,500 | FD: $6,900)

Dalton lastly seems to be comfy underneath heart in Dallas, and he’s quietly averaged about 17 fantasy factors over his previous 5 video games. Kyler Murray simply put up 406 passing yards and three TDs in opposition to Philly’s secondary, so we like Pink Rifle on this essential residence recreation in opposition to the Cowboys’ division rivals.

Saturday Slate Standouts:

Kyler Murray, Cardinals; Tom Brady, Buccaneers; Derek Carr, Raiders


Week 16 DraftKings, FanDuel Picks: RB sleepers, values

David Johnson, Houston Texans vs. Cincinnati Bengals (DK: $6,100 | FD: $6,700)

After lacking a handful of contests to a concussion and COVID-19 (not the type of alliteration you need), DJ exploded for 133 all-purpose yards in Indianapolis final weekend. He caught all 11 of his targets, serving as Deshaun Watson’s safety blanket in opposition to a troublesome Colts entrance seven. The Bengals seemed fairly darn good in opposition to the Steelers final weekend, however they nonetheless permit 128.6 dashing yards per recreation (seventh worst within the NFL). Johnson ought to seize no less than 60 yards on the bottom and perhaps one other 50 by way of the air. RotoQL initiatives him to attain 15.8 fantasy factors this weekend, which might equal monumental worth at these costs.

JK Dobbins, Baltimore Ravens vs. New York Giants (DK: $6,200 | FD: $6,300)

Dobbins has been among the best offensive rookies within the second half of the 2020 season, and he’s averaged 14 fantasy factors over the previous 4 weeks. The Giants have an excellent secondary, however their entrance seven has been weak to good operating video games. The Ravens are among the best dashing groups within the NFL, and Dobbins has emerged as their greatest again. Count on one other double-digit factors efficiency from the proficient rookie this weekend.

Le’Veon Bell, Kansas Metropolis Chiefs vs. Atlanta Falcons (DK: $5,800 | FD: $6,400)

After standout rookie Clyde Edwards-Helaire suffered a high-ankle sprain and hip pressure in a gruesome-looking play Sunday, Bell is now the true bell-cow in KC. The veteran has completed all of it for the Chiefs these days, and he logged 76 scrimmage yards and a rating of their massive 32-29 win over the Saints. The Falcons D has been higher as of late, but it surely’s nonetheless vulnerable to big-play guys in high-flying offenses. Leonard Fournette simply scored two TDs in Atlanta final week, and it’s an excellent guess that Bell can fall in the long run zone no less than as soon as this week.  

Stocking Stuffer Particular

Chase Edmonds, Arizona Cardinals vs. San Francisco 49ers (DK: $4,600 | FD: $6,400)

I’ve been one of many loudest critics of Kenyan Drake this season, and I keep that Edmonds is a greater fantasy participant (and RB typically) than Drake. Edmonds touched the ball 14 occasions in Arizona’s massive win over Philly final week, netting 66 yards and a landing (15.6 PPR factors). In the meantime, Drake managed simply 40 yards on 12 touches and appeared banged up all through the sport. RotoQL initiatives Edmonds at 10 PPR factors with a 38-point ceiling on Saturday.

Saturday Slate Standouts:

D’Andre Swift, Lions; Salvon Ahmed, Dolphins

Quarterback | Running back | Wide receiver | Tight end | D/ST | Kicker

FanDuel, DraftKings Picks Week 16: WR sleepers, values

Brandin Cooks, Houston Texans vs. Cincinnati Bengals (DK: $6,200 | FD: $7,000)

Cooks missed one recreation after struggling a concussion in opposition to Indy in Week 13, however he returned to face the identical Colts final weekend. He recorded six receptions on seven targets for 59 yards in his fourth consecutive recreation with no less than 11.9 PPR factors. Cincinnati has a a lot weaker secondary than Indy, so anticipate the amount to translate into extra factors manufacturing for Cooks this weekend. He’s Deshaun Watson’s A-1 ever since Will Fuller’s suspension, and he’s effectively value these value tags.

Tee Higgins, Cincinnati Bengals at Houston Texans (DK: $4,700 | FD: $5,900)

Bengals veteran wideout Tyler Boyd (concussion) acquired banged up within the upset win over the Steelers final week, so the rookie may very well be in for an enormous quantity increase from third-string QB Ryan Finley. The Texans’ move protection has been abysmal this season, rating twenty third in fantasy factors allowed to huge receivers. He is a risky play, however Higgins might include an enormous reward at a low price.

Sammy Watkins, Kansas Metropolis Chiefs vs. Atlanta Falcons (DK: 5,000 | FD: $5,400)

Watkins has had a troublesome 2020, however Patrick Mahomes has more and more concerned the veteran wideout previously few weeks. He has 22 targets since getting back from damage in Week 12, and he’s caught 4 passes in three of these 4 video games. He logged 60 receiving yards in opposition to a dynamic Saints secondary final week, so 80 yards and a rating appear attainable at residence in opposition to the last-ranked Falcons passing protection.

Stocking Stuffer Particular

Allen Lazard, Inexperienced Bay Packers vs. Tennessee Titans (DK: $4,200 | FD: $5,700)

Lazard has been heating up as of late, making up for the time he misplaced to core muscle surgical procedure. Solely two groups hand over extra fantasy factors to huge receivers than Tennessee, so a few of the quantity ought to go his approach this weekend.

Saturday Slate Standouts:

Brandon Aiyuk, 49ers; Mike Evans, Buccaneers; Marvin Jones, Lions

Quarterback | Running back | Wide receiver | Tight end | D/ST | Kicker

Week 16 NFL DFS Picks: TE sleepers, values

Mark Andrews, Baltimore Ravens vs. New York Giants (DK: $5,700 | FD: $7,000)

The high-flying Ravens are again simply in time for a playoff push, and Andrews has been one of many important catalysts. The 6-5, 256-pound veteran has averaged 17 fantasy factors over his previous three contests, and he stays one of many extra reliable targets within the NFL on third down and within the pink zone. Not like nearly all of tight ends, Andrews has a large ceiling and an honest flooring. The Giants have allowed tight ends to seek out paydirt in every of their previous two video games, and Andrews has caught nine-of-13 red-zone targets this season (with two TDs previously three video games), so getting the Professional Bowler at $5,700 is an early Christmas reward.

Logan Thomas, Washington Soccer Crew vs. Carolina Panthers (DK: $4,900 | FD: $6,000)

An ideal storm of things went into this suggestion. The veteran journeyman has loved a breakout season, with 62 receptions and 5 touchdowns. He’s coming off his greatest quantity recreation of the season, having caught 13-of-15 targets for 101 yards in opposition to the Seahawks. And this week he traces up in opposition to the Panthers protection, one of many worst items within the league and the eighth-most beneficiant fantasy D to tight ends. Thomas has caught 32 of his 35 targets over the previous 4 video games, so that you would possibly wish to hop aboard Thomas the Tank earlier than DFS websites begin to catch on.

Stocking Stuffer Particular:

Austin Hooper, Cleveland Browns at New York Jets (DK: $3,500 | FD: $5,100)

Hooper got here again final week from a one-game absence attributable to a neck damage, and he posted 15.1 fantasy factors within the Browns’ win over the Giants. Now he will get to face off with the opposite Huge Apple workforce, the lowly Jets, who function probably the most beneficiant protection to tight ends. It’s been a troublesome yr for Hooper — emergency appendectomy, neck illnesses, and so forth. — however this recreation ought to show to be a much-needed stat-padder for the two-time Professional Bowler.

Saturday Slate Standouts:

Darren Waller, Raiders; Rob Gronkowski, Buccaneers; Jordan Reed, 49ers

BetQL, RotoQL’s sister product, simplifies the analysis course of for sports activities bettors by equipping them with real-time line actions, worth bets of the day and significant workforce developments. Check it out here!

Week 16 NFL DFS values: D/ST sleepers

Washington Soccer Crew vs. Carolina Panthers (DK: $3,000 | FD: $4,800)

The workforce with no title positive has one hell of a protection. WFT has emerged as one of many extra dominant squads in soccer, and it’s coming off a troublesome 20-15 loss to the Seahawks. Newsflash: Carolina sans-Christian McCaffrey comes nowhere close to the offensive capability of Seattle. I believe the Panthers wrestle in D.C. this weekend, and Washington logs no less than 11 fantasy factors for the fifth time this season.

Saturday Slate Standouts:

Tampa Bay Buccaneers at Detroit Lions; Arizona Cardinals vs. San Francisco 49ers
