Have you played Daily Fantasy on Sportzshala before you try it for the first time, this weekly column will give you an early look at the DFS landscape, revealing who I like to build squads around, stars that fade, underrated games, and bargain buy options to help you build the best team. .

Line building blocks

Josh Allen ($40) @ Baltimore Ravens

Allen is second only to Lamar Jackson in fantasy scoring this season, so you can choose whichever QB you prefer in this matchup. Allen, however, gets a secondary Baltimore who continues to struggle with injuries and allows Tua Tagovailoa throw for six touchdowns and Mac Jones throw a career-high 321 yards (10.0 YPA without WR1) in the last two weeks.

This match has the highest over/under this week (51.5 points) and passes must be noted from both sides. Buffalo is also dealing with multiple injuries on defense, but the Bills have allowed the second-most yards per game (4.1) this season; crows allowed second by size (6.5).

Mark Andrews ($28) vs. Buffalo Bills

Given the huge positional advantage, Andrews has an argument for being one of the top three fantasy players. hard end leads among all planners in terms of target share and target run speed per route and ranks third in airfields this season. it’s recorded 116 catches for 1,420 yards and 12 touchdowns over the last 17 games.

His quarterback, Lamar Jackson, leads the NFL by a wide margin in field goal percentage (34%!) over the past five seasons and looks determined to win the MVP in the contract year. Crazy Andrews splits without Marchioness Brown he’s gotten even more extreme in 2022, so he’s a strong DFS building block in this week’s highest-scoring matchup against multi-injured secondary Buffalo.

star to fade

Kyler Murray ($33) @ Carolina Panthers

Volume helped Murray’s fantasy value stay afloat, but QB’s start was very difficult. In fact its 5.6 YPA is better than just Mitch Trubisky (5.5) and Murray played every game indoors. In other words, Murray is second in passing attempts and 12th in yards. There may be no volume on Sunday in a game with a low total (42.5 points) and with the team from Arizona, which has the last place in pace in neutral situations. The Cardinals aren’t going to play that much from behind this week after trailing a combined 31-0 after the first quarter for the first three games).

Murray also cut back after signing a huge off-season contract, averaging 40% fewer carries and 45% fewer yards in his first three games compared to his previous career numbers. Now, Arizona is heading into an early game outdoors against a Carolina defense that has generated just 5.9 YPAs while allowing the quarterbacks to score the fourth-fewest fantastic points this season. Expectations should be moderate this week.

Undervalued Options

Jamaal Williams ($23) vs. Seattle Seahawks

Williams was fantasy #3 last week thanks to D’Andre Swift A shoulder injury that will see him out of the game on Sunday and possibly beyond. With one of the best offensive lines in the NFL, you can bounce back even if Craig Reynolds We’ll see some work on Sunday. Williams was getting most of Detroit’s all-important use of the red zone even before Swift dropped, taking first place in the NFL in both carries within the 10-yard line and inside the five-yard line this season.

Williams doesn’t have nearly the same explosion as Swift, but he’s a capable receiver who should also see more goals this week with Amon-Ra Saint Brown dealing with an ankle injury. Detroit ranks first on pace (neutral situations) and faces the Seahawks defense for 4.9 YPC and third in scoring this season. What’s more, the Lions are home favorites with 4.5 points and one of the highest implied team points of the week. Williams should be seen as the top five fantasy players this week, and his DFS salary is not in the top ten.

Amari Cooper ($23) @ Atlanta Falcons

Despite a slow first week with his new team, Cooper is in the top five in goal share and third in yard share this season. He now faces his first indoor game of the season against the Falcons defense, allowing wide receivers third in fantastic points and fourth in EPA/assist.

In a matchup with one of the highest totals this week, Cooper also presents a good low stack opportunity. Jacoby Brisset (more about it below). And you can return Drake London ($21), which this season is in the top three in terms of target share. including a large dose of game action (and on first downs, both of which cost about 20% more than a normal target).

Trash can

Jacoby Brisset ($20) @ Atlanta Falcons

If you want to play this week, Brissette is your quarterback.

Not that he’s rocking, but despite a busy schedule, Brisset has scored more fantasy points this year than Russell Wilson, Matthew Stafford, Aaron Rogers as well as Tom Brady. He has more rush attempts and one less rush than Kyler Murray in productive Cleveland offense with a dominant line, strong coaching and both Amari Cooper as well as David Njoku providing good weapons.

This week Brissette will be playing indoors at sneaky match with one of the highest over/under ratios against the Atlanta defense, leading to a 10th-highest QB in fantastic points (and third in passing touchdowns). Brisset is a good minimum wage player.
