Draftkings week 3 winning lineup breakdown 2016

Position 1: DraftKings NFL Daily Fantasy Sports Lineup Breakdown – Quarterback (QB):

Matthew Stafford (Detroit Lions) (30.5 Points Scored) 3 PaTD, 385 PaYds, 11 RuYds, 1 INT, 1 300+Pass (2.4% Owned)

Stafford has now killed it two out of three weeks and him being forced to play behind the whole game lead him to putting up some serious fantasy numbers.  Quarterbacks playing the high paced Packers might be something to take note of for later in the season.

Position 2: DraftKings NFL Daily Fantasy Sports Lineup Breakdown – Running Back (RB):

LeSean McCoy (Buffalo Bills) (29.6 Points Scored) 2 RuTD, 6 RecYds, 110 RuYds, 3 REC, 1 100+Rush (1.8% Owned)

Averaging a touchdown a game so far this season and heavily involved in the passing game McCoy is a veteran running back that might be starting to find is old form again while flying under the radar.  LeSean is a dual threat that has the potential to put up big numbers on any given Sunday.

Position 3: DraftKings NFL Daily Fantasy Sports Lineup Breakdown – Running Back (RB):

Shane Vereen (New York Giants) (16.5 Points Scored) 1 RuTD, 28 RecYds, 67 RuYds, 2 REC, 1 FUM (11.4% Owned)

Vereen got injured this week and it may cost him the entire season.  Doing great before he was injured unfortunately Shane will most likely not be available again for the year.  Giants running back Rashad Jennings (thumb) if he plays next Monday might be someone to keep on the radar.

Position 4: DraftKings NFL Daily Fantasy Sports Lineup Breakdown – Wide Receiver (WR):

Antonio Brown (Pittsburgh Steelers) (29 Points Scored) 140 RecYds, 12 REC, 1 100+Rec (22.4% Owned)

The highest percentage owned player on this winning roster what more is there to say about Brown except for that he is simply one of the best in the game.  With 304 yards and two touchdowns through three weeks Brown is almost a lock for big DFS number every week making him worth every penny of his lineup price tag.

Position 5: DraftKings NFL Daily Fantasy Sports Lineup Breakdown – Wide Receiver (WR):

Marvin Jones Jr. (Detroit Lions) (41.5 Points Scored? 2 RecTD, 205 RecYds, 6 REC, 1 100+Rec (10.4% Owned)

Here we see the quarterback and wide receiver cuff play that is now becoming wildly popular and successful within NFL daiy fantasy sports.  Jones is absolutely killing it this year with over 400 yards receiving throughout the first three weeks of the season and seems to have beat out fellow WR Tate as the number one go to on the team.  Look for many more big games from this still relatively cheap number one target.  He was also on last weeks winning lineup which should give us more insight to just how strong of a play this is in any type of lineup building exercise.

Position 6: DraftKings NFL Daily Fantasy Sports Lineup Breakdown – Wide Receiver (WR):

Terrelle Pryor Sr. (Cleveland Browns) (34.9 Points Scored) 1 RuTD, 35 PaYds, 144 RecYds, 21 RuYds, 8 REC, 1 100+Rec (2.9%)

Pryor had 14 targets and even played goal quarterback at some points in the game so with versatility and opportunity like this he is one of the more interesting DFS choices.  Most experts could not see a game like this coming as its so rare in the NFL but this multi-faceted talent is surely someone to keep an eye on even after Josh Gordon returns.

Position 7: DraftKings NFL Daily Fantasy Sports Lineup Breakdown – Tight End (TE):

Zach Miller (Chicago Bears ) (27.8 Points Scored) 2 RecTD, 78 RecYds, 8 REC (0.7% Owned)

The lowest % pick owned on the team Miller had a huge day with Brian Hoyer at the helm and really benefited from some garabage time points as the Bears were getting killed the whole game by the cowboys.  Miller did see eight targets which is solid for tight end and given his low price and low popularity is certainly someone to keep on the radar for many weeks to come.

Position 8: DraftKings NFL Daily Fantasy Sports Lineup Breakdown – FLEX:

T.Y. Hilton (Indianapolis Colts) (34.4 Points Scored) 1 RecTD, 174 RecYds, 8 REC, 1 100+Rec (4.5% Owned)

Hilton has seen double digit targets in each of the first three weeks of this NFL daily fantasy sports season and should continue to get plenty of looks going forward.  While a little banged up and not putting  huge numbers this might have been the weakest part of the Lineup that came through.  If it were not for a 6 yeard TD catch in the last two minutes of the game Hilton would have not paid off his $6800 price tag.

Position 9: DraftKings NFL Daily Fantasy Sports Lineup Breakdown – Defense (D):

Seahawks (3 Pts) 1 INT, 1 14-20 PA (4.6% Owned)

One of the best defenses in League did absolutely nothing agains the not that great Niners which had to be a surprise to everyone.  This Seahawks performance is probably what cost “papagates” the out right win and this had to be pretty frustrating as the team he was competeing with defense had 35 DFS points  (Chiefs).  This just goes to show you that even when top plays let you down all hope is not lost.
