The bargain basement DFS plays are back for Week 4. Everyone knows to start Aaron Rodgers and Julio Jones most weeks. What can bring home the money in DFS is finding players who will produce at a lower salary but might not always be on many lineup cards. Here are the bargain basement plays for this week:
Tyrod Taylor, Bills (DraftKings: $5,800,
Taylor has been a Top 5 fantasy quarterback through three games, yet his salary is still moderately low.
On DraftKings for instance, Taylor’s salary is $200 lower than Sam Bradford. Taylor is averaging 23.1 fantasy points per week and facing the 32nd ranked pass defense. Meanwhile, Bradford is averaging 12.6 fantasy points and facing the 7th ranked pass defense. There’s still a lot of value in taking Taylor, despite his early season success.
The Giants are allowing 345 yards and 1.7 touchdowns per game to opposing quarterbacks. New York also struggled against rushing quarterbacks last season. This is the first time in 2015 the Giants will face a mobile quarterback, so Taylor should have success on the ground as well.
Beyond the numbers though, Taylor has been throwing darts in the first three games. We knew about his running ability but Taylor has exceeded expectations as a passer.
Taylor is producing every week and he has a great matchup versus the Giants. Ride the hot hand while his salary remains this low.
I’m using Taylor as my starting quarterback in TheHuddle.com’s GPP tournament at FantasyScore.
