We wish all of you a Happy Thanksgiving and a productive day in DFS on Thursday, but we are focusing on this Sunday. There are quite a few top values and mid-values this week! Let’s check out this week’s high-end picks, best values, and some buyer beware picks at wide receiver.
Cooper Kupp – ($9,600 DK, $9,500 FD) – It’s not often that you see DraftKings being more expensive for a player than FanDuel, but here we are. Kupp has dominated this year. This week, he has a tough matchup playing in Green Bay who ranks seventh in giving up fantasy points to wide receivers. But Kupp has held his own by averaging 15.48 fantasy points per game and has been 80 percent consistent. It might be a little short on value, but Kupp has been perfectly consistent this year, so let’s stick with him, shall we?
Keenan Allen – BEWARE – ($7,400 DK, $7,000 FD) – I love Allen as one of my favorite consistent receivers every year. This year is no exception as he’s 80 percent consistent on the year. However, he has a tough matchup this week versus the Broncos in Denver. The Broncos rank 10th in giving up the fewest fantasy points to receivers so far this year. Allen has only averaged 13.75 fantasy points per game and has been only 64 percent consistent in those games. I’ll look for some better value eleswhere.

Best Value – WR – Corey Davis – ($4,800 DK, $6,100 FD) – You’re welcome for last week’s Elijah Moore here in the Best Value section. This week, we are going to stay with the Jets but change receivers. Moore’s price tag is much higher now and Zach Wilson is coming back this week. Wilson and Davis were clicking earlier in the year before Wilson got hurt. The Jets are playing Houston who ranks 26th in giving up fantasy points to receivers. Davis won’t be owned by many so get in while the getting is good.
Best Mid-Value – WR – Tee Higgins – ($5,400 DK, $6,200 FD) – The Steelers know that to stop the Bengals you have to stop Ja’Marr Chase and I believe they will. This will leave Tee Higgins open and productive this week in a shoot-out in the AFC North. The Steelers rank 24th in giving up fantasy points to receivers and Higgins has averaged 14.63 fantasy points per game and has been 75 percent consistent in those games. There’s nice value here.
Ja’Marr Chase – BEWARE – ($7,300 DK, $7,700 FD) – Chase is almost $2k more than Higgins this week and isn’t worth it based on the Steelers focusing on stopping Chase. Even though Chase has been 100 percent consistent in games at home versus a bad defense, he’s only averaged 13.70 fantasy points per game and based on his price tag, the value just isn’t there this week.
