Constructing your teams around value running backs will be the theme of the main slate on DraftKings once again. Legitimately you could argue for four or five of the mid-priced RBs. Christian McCaffrey ($9200) and Tony Pollard ($7800) are the high-priced bell cows. Do you spend up at running back and lock in McCaffrey’s insane workload and efficiency? Or do you spend up at quarterback with Josh Allen ($8200) in the highest total game on the slate against Miami? On top of all that, we will need to decide between all of the stud wide receivers this week.
A lot of these players are all in great spots this week which is going to make this slate fun. Most of the value plays are RBs in the high 5K to low 6K range, so fitting two or three high-priced players is probably not on the table this week.
We will dive into all these decisions using the RotoViz tools to figure out some contrarian ways to attack this slate in different-sized contests.
