Draftkings Plays for Thursday Night Football: Steelers @ Browns
Week three of the NFL season kicks off with the Pittsburgh Steelers traveling to Cleveland to take on the Browns. Draftkings is offering a countless amount of tournaments, cash games, and head to heads for this game. Here is what to need to know if you want to get ahead of your competition!
Amari Cooper ($14,100) we have known for years that Cooper is the definition of “Boom or Bust”, as a result makes the him a perfect captain option on Draftkings. He is currently playing over 80% of Cleveland’s snaps, and seems to be forming a great connection with Jacoby Brissett. With the total being so low, defenses and kickers will be extremely high owned, so snag players like Amari Cooper in case this game becomes a shoot out!
Diontae Johnson ($13,800) Talk about a Draftkings play with a safe floor. Johnson continues to dominate this team when it comes to target share. The Steelers seem to be running the same offense as they did with retired QB Ben Roethlisberger, and that means short passes. They add up. Play Johnson. I’m also going to be taking his receiving prop at OVER 58 yards.
I want to start out by saying this… do not play Nick Chubb at $12,000. I am going to fade the three touchdown game, and pray that Chubb does not score 20 or more fantasy points as the highest owned player on Draftkings.
Jacoby Brissett ($8,800) and Mitch Trubisky ($8,600) Here’s the deal. These Quarterbacks are WAY too cheap. The total being so low in addition to their recent play is going to keep ownership low. Furthermore, both QB’s have opportunities to be in the optimal lineup with their sneaky rushing upside. Play them both.
Kareem Hunt ($7,600) The Browns backfield is split 50/50 in terms of snap counts, therefore I’ll gladly take the discount on Hunt. He thrives when the Browns get down, so play him and hope the Steelers come out strong.
Chase Claypool ($6,200) I love Claypool for one reason only. He is playing 92% of the snaps which is highest on the Steelers. I believe a massive game is in store for the Notre Dame product, and Thursday may be the one. In addition, he makes a very sneaky Captain play at very low ownership! Do yourself a favor and take the value on Claypool Any Time Touchdown +330 and his OVER 39 receiving yards!
David Njoku ($5,200) Lastly, I am going to talk about the guy who’s leading the Browns in snap counts. David seems to have the Steelers number, and will allow you to get a stack with him and Brissett. Be ready for a big time game from the #1 Tight End on this team. Also add: Njoku Any Time Touchdown +470, Njoku OVER 29 yards, and Njoku FIRST Touchdown +1800!
George Pickens ($4,800) I am very excited for the Georgia product to show the world what he has! Pickens thrived in camp and continues to see high snap counts for Pittsburgh. His low volume will keep his ownership down, however be ready for the breakout performance.
Cheap Dart Throw
David Bell ($1,400) The Purdue product is the clear WR3 on the Browns. We all saw what he was able to do in college, and I wouldn’t be surprised if Bell “Breaks the Slate” on Thursday Night.
