I hope everyone had a great Thanksgiving last week and is ready for another big DFS week! 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 – ($9,000 DK, $9,000 FD) – Kupp continues to be the most expensive option at wide receiver. He’s got a great matchup this week as the Rams take on the Jaguars at home. The Jags are ranked 23rd in giving up fantasy points to receivers so far this year. Kupp has been perfectly consistent and has averaged 21.58 fantasy points per game. If you can afford to squeeze him in your lineup, then I would go for it.
Adam Thielen – BEWARE – ($7,300 DK, $7,600 FD) – The reason Thielen isn’t a great start this week is not that the Lions have a great pass defense. It’s because they have a terrible pass offense. They are not scoring any points, so teams don’t have to throw and the Lions rank 26th against running backs. So, Thielen is not a value worth grabbing for this week.

Best Value – WR – DeSean Jackson – ($4,200 DK, $5,200 FD) – D-Jax was traded to the Raiders after the Rams grabbed Odell Beckham Jr. In his first game, Jackson had a big game (22.2 fantasy points) and this week he goes against the 29th worst team in giving up fantasy points to receivers. At this price, it’s hard not to put him in your lineup.
Best Mid-Value – WR – Michael Pittman – ($5,700 DK, $6,800 FD) – Pittman has cooled off a bit lately and therefore his price tag has dropped. However, this week he gets a great matchup versus the Texans who rank in the bottom ten. Pittman has averaged 16.25 fantasy points per game when playing on the road versus a bad defense and has been 100 percent consistent in those games.
Ja’Marr Chase – BEWARE – ($7,000 DK, $7,500 FD) – Chase has been one of the top receivers so far this season, but he’s cooled off recently and this week he has another tough game versus the Chargers who rank second in giving up the fewest points to wide receivers. He’s a little too pricey for me this week.
