Christian Kirk | WR, JAX


Has seen 24 targets over last two games while scoring over 21 FPs per game. KC D ranks 22nd in league in FPs allowed to WRs. Game has spread of 53 and with Jaguars as underdogs there should be high volume through the air.

Dallas Goedart | TE, PHI


NYG D ranks 22nd in FPs allowed to TEs. Has a floor of 7.5 FPs over last six games while averaging 12.9 FPs per game over same time frame.

Daniel Jones | QB, NYG

Sunday Slate Value Plays




Deebo Samuel I WR, SF


Had 165 all purpose yards last week on nine targets and 3 carries. Averaging 10.5 opportunities per game over last four games. DAL D ranks 29th in league in FPs allowed to WRs.

Gabe Davis I WR, BUF


Has seen 19 targets over last two games, with 23% of team's targets over last four games. Averaging 1.5 red zone opportunities per game over last four games.

Dawson Knox I TE, BUF


Scored at least one touchdown in each of last five games. Floor of 9.3 FPs over last five games. CIN D ranks 11th in NFL in FPs allowed to TEs, which is the easiest TE matchup of Sunday's games.

How this works

Every week, we analyze three “under the radar” NFL DFS values from the early and afternoon slates on DraftKings. The goal being, to find players with more than a 40% chance of scoring four times their salary. That means a DraftKings fantasy point performance greater than [Sal($k)] x 4.

Among other things, we factor in:

  1. Only DraftKings players with salaries of $6,900 or less
  2. Team matchups
  3. Whether projected opportunities are sufficient to return 4x DFS value
  4. The Divisional Round NFL injury report for fantasy players.

Uncovering players who blow up for 4x value isn’t easy, but it’s vital for anyone hoping to win tournaments consistently.
