I didn't win a contest in Draft Kings at all last week, but I won both of my season long leagues thanks to LeVeon Bell and his last second touchdown. In one league I was down by 3 until that last play where he dove for the end zone. Thank you Bell - almost lost to a team without a win despite putting up the 3rd highest points last week. Back to DFS, what hurt me the most what my Charles Clay pick. Every other position had at least double digit points except for Clay. In fact, if Clay put up 5 points instead of his measly 1.7 points, I would've been in the money and at least won my money back. But it's okay, because there's always next week fortunately.
This man has been on fire. Their offense is rolling. Their defense has been getting stops. The running game is on point. The Arizona Cardinals are what the Denver Broncos should have been this year. Add Palmer to your lineups this Sunday against the Steelers in what should be a high scoring game and a great matchup with their banged up secondary. As long as he's healthy, Palmer is a very safe QB play with a very high floor.

Foster looks like the same one of last year when he was killing it. Make no mistake, he didn't get too many rushing yards, but he made up for that in the passing game by getting plenty of receptions last week against the Colts. He's got the Jaguars this week and he's set to scorch them, whether on the ground, running or in the air, receiving. I wish I had him in my season long leagues, but I took LeVeon instead and couldn't afford two RBs not playing within the first few weeks.

He's been somewhat very quiet this year, but that should change and that change will come this week. He's going up against a San Diego defense that just got worked up by Bell. Mind you, they were stacking the box against the Steelers and still couldn't stop Bell from breaking out big runs. Eddie Lacy shouldn't see those stacked boxes thanks to our best friend Aaron Rodgers. Lacy should be a solid start, set up to put up a good amount of points, in what is a great matchup for him.

He's had a horrid past couple of weeks, but did you see what Boldin did to the Giants secondary? Oh, and their best cover man, Prince Amukamara is probably not going to play. Bradford is starting to throw the ball with a purpose. He's still making dumb decisions, but he's also targeting Matthews a lot. I wouldn't be too afraid of Matthews dropping the ball near the redzone. He should be able to fix that. Get him in your lineups and sit back and... wait, you can't really relax watching the Eagles offense because Chip Kelly can't do weird things at times. But, just know that Matthews will get his.

This is more of a value sleeper pick than a for sure thing. I am starting him in my flex spot because he's been getting a solid 10-15 points a game and I can manage with that. He's got a good matchup against a surprisingly decent Washington defense. I just think this game will be higher scoring than people think and I want to bank on Fitzpatrick slinging it out to his very good receiving options.

Bonus Pick - Denver Broncos Defense:
Yes. A defense. But not any defense. These group of guys have been monstrous. They're the best defense in the league right now and they put up a massive amount of points week in and week out. If you can grab them on your team in season long leagues, please do it. But for those not as fortunate, add them to your DFS lineups and watch them stack points on your scoreboard.
