MATCHUP SUMMARY

This matchup features 2 surprising teams last week DFS wise as Carson Wentz found himself optimal in some contests with a 32.72 FPT performance at 5.5K and taking along with him 2 of his cheaper WRs in Curtis Samuel (4.2K) who posted 20.2 FPTs with 11 targets and Jahan Dotson (3.4K) with 18 FPTs with 5 targets for 40 yards and 2 TDs. Antonio Gibson rushed for 14 times and only posted 58 yards total but also added on 7 receptions and 72 yards.

Detroit on the other hand absolutely bled fantasy points to their opponent the Eagles, but they in turn scored a lot of points as well in which was a fireworks filled game that ended 38-35 in favor Philly. DeAndre Swift rushed 15 times for 144 yards and 1 TD while his back up Jamaal Williams rushed for 11 times, 28 yards, and 2 TDs. Amon-Ra St. Brown assisted in the passing game with 12 targets total which lead to 8 receptions, 64 receiving yards, and 1 TD.

I do think this game has a ton of DFS potential as it doesn’t look like the Lions are looking to play any defense. Washington also looks to throw more as Wentz had 41 pass attempts. Initial ownership projections don’t seem as high on Wentz which makes me interested at 5.8K. Curtis Samuel (4.6K) and Jahan Dotson (4.2K) both got price bumps but they are definitely still viable based on the targets they got last week. It will be interesting to see if Terry McLaurin (6.6K) gets more usage going forward so that is definitely something I am keeping an eye out for. Antonio Gibson (6.2K) will also firmly be in play for me as well especially if the targets continue to trend the same. The Eagles running backs + Hurts had no issue rushing on the Lions last week so I would expect the same from Gibson. On the DET side, D’Andre Swift (7K) and Amon-Ra St. Brown (6.5K) would be my targets as they are the 2 alphas in both the passing and running elements of the Lions.

THE DFS GEMS

D’Andre Swift, DET – $7,000 on DraftKings. Swift is projecting to be one of the higher owned RBs on this weekend’s slate, but his usage is undeniable. He could have had an even more monstrous week last week if he didn’t get vultured by Jamaal Williams as well.

Terry McLaurin, WAS – $6,600 on DraftKings. Many might flock to Curtis Samuel or Jahan Dotson after last week, especially with their tags, making Scary Terry a prime GPP target.

Carson Wentz, WAS – $5,800 on DraftKings. Attempted 41 passes last week and is still very cheap. If last weeks PHI/DET game was any indication of what type of defense will be played in this game, fantasy points should be a plenty in this matchup.
