Last week we took advantage of value at wide receiver in Miami, where DeVante Parker ($4,300 DK/$5,800 FD) put up 16.8 FPTS, as he led the Dolphins in receiving as they beat up on the Jets.
As COVID and injuries ravage the NFL towards the end of the regular season, every game and slates are loaded with value plays. Big name players like Tyreek Hill and Travis Kelce will most likely be watching the Chiefs from their couches. Kansas City will have tremendous value this week, which leads us to our freebee of the week:
Byron Pringle ($3,300 DK/$5,200 FD) Will be pretty busy against the Steelers, as Mahomes will need to throw the ball to somebody other than Hill and Kelce (COVID Protocols) on Sunday. Also take a look at Mecole Hardman, Demarcus Robinson, and Josh Gordon, who are all min priced and will also see an uptick in usage.

Value at Quarterback:
Drew Lock ($5,100 DK/$6,600 FD) We bashed him a little in our defense article the other day, but at his price going up against the Raiders, he has some potential for a decent game. Lock has a full 2020 season of games under his belt with the Broncos, so feel comfortable rolling him out to save up on the other positions.
Trevor Lawrence ($5,000 DK/$6,500 FD) The 2021 number one pick has had a rough rookie season so far, but he gets the Jets this week, how much worse can he play really? And with his old coach Urban Meyer out of the picture, gives more reason for the rookie to strut his stuff in this barn-burner match up in New Jersey.
Value at Running Back:
Ronald Jones ($5,100 DK/$5,400 FD) The Bucs got bit hard by the injury bug last weekend, losing lead back Leonard Fournette for the rest of the season. Jones will plug right in to the scheme, as he has done so in the past for Tampa. There is no one else on the roster to threaten the job, as Giovanni Bernard is still on IR, and Jaque Vaughn has not seen much action at all in two seasons.
Justin Jackson ($4,200 DK/$5,400 FD) The Chargers placed bell cow Austin Ekeler on the COVID List, and he has already come out to mention in the media how Jackson will be the guy to lead the backfield. And what a match up, he gets one of the worst run defenses in Houston. Get him in your lineups for a huge bargain at running back.
Value at Wide Receiver:
Antonio Brown ($4,900 DK/$7,000 FD) The lowest price for AB by far, and will be targeted heavily by his buddy Brady. Fellow receivers will be out this week as Mike Evans is still banged up and Godwin is done for the year from a MCL. Gronk is still out there but there will still be plenty of volume to go Brown’s way. Brashaud Perriman ($4,200 DK/$4,700 FD) will also be a nice value for the Bucs if he lands off the COVID list.
Value at Tight End:
Cole Kmet ($3,300 DK/$5,000 FD) Justin Fields peppers his tight ends with passes, and Kmet has a great matchup with the Seahawks, who have been bludgeoned by the position all year long.
Tyler Kroft ($2,500 DK/$4,400 FD) Somebody has to catch the ball from Zach Wilson. Teammate Ryan Griffin landed on IR last week, as well as most of the Jets’ receiving core. Wilson throws heavily to the tight end position, and the Jaguars are terrible at defending them as they rank 28th in the league.
