I used to play Daily Fantasy a lot, but once online sports betting became legal in my state (New York) I got so lost in the sauce of game-wagering that I totally forgot about Daily Fantasy. I'm sorry to all of my DFS fans–I’ll never forget about you again. 

Using DraftKings Sportsbooks valuations, I’m going to give you the players who I think are the best bang for their buck here in week ten. You’ll get some expensive players, some cheap players, and some that are right down the middle. 

If Daily Fantasy Sports isn’t available in your area, you can check out this list of other online casinos you can choose from. 

Best DFS Quarterbacks Week Ten

Justin Fields ($6500)

If you want a QB that will rack up points through passing yards, then Fields ain't your guy. He’s only surpassed 190 passing yards for the Bears four times this season, and has thrown for under 150 passing yards just as many times. However, he’s now had multiple touchdown passes in two straight games, at least 60 rushing yards in four straight, and has scored 17+ fantasy points in five consecutive weeks. I think that success will continue, considering he’s taking on a Detroit Lions defense here in week ten that has given up the 3rd most fantasy points to opposing quarterbacks all season. 

Case Keenum ($5000)

This is one you’re going to have to keep an eye on, as Bills starting QB Josh Allen remains questionable for their week ten game against the Vikings. If Allen is unable to play, Keenum becomes a great-value QB on any DFS team. As we already know, the Bills offer plenty of weapons in the passing game, namely ex-Viking Stefon Diggs who may be looking to have a homecoming you can’t forget. 

Best DFS Running Backs Week Ten

Saquon Barkley ($8600)

I know, he’s the most expensive RB on the board so this really isn’t helpful–but, if anything, this should just stress ho good of a game a think Barkley will have here in week ten. Barkley has been a fantasy points hungry hungry hippo so far this season, scoring 20.7 fantasy points per week. Here in week ten Saquon and the Giants are taking on the Texans, who possess the worst run defense in the entire NFL. It doesn’t take an expert to crunch the numbers here.

Jamaal Williams ($5900)

Ever since De’Andre Swifts' injury, Williams has been quietly piecing together a great season in Detroit. Since week three, Williams has averaged just over seventeen carries per game, so you know he’s going to see the ball a TON every week. Last week, Williams touched the ball 24 times on the way to 81 yards in the Lions' win over the Packers. This week, the Lions are taking on a Bears defense that has given up the fifth most points to opposing running backs all season. 24 touches against a defense like that could produce monster numbers for the veteran back. 

Best DFS Wide Receivers Week Ten

JuJu Smith-Schuster ($6,000) 

Smith-Schuster racked up 10 receptions on 12 targets for 88 yards in the Chiefs' nail-biter against the Titans in week nine. He’s another player who has been kind of lowkey so far this year, but his recent numbers say otherwise–here are his last three weeks:

  • Week Six (vs BUF): 5 rec, 5 tar, 113 yds, 1 TD
  • Week Seven (@SF): 7 rec, 8 tar, 124 yds. 1 TD
  • Week Nine (vs TEN): 10 rec, 12 tar, 88 yds

Although he could not extend his touchdown streak to three in week ten, he still managed to put up solid WR1 numbers. I think he’ll do the same here in week ten against the Jaguars, who have given up the 10th most points to opposing wideouts this season.

Jerry Jeudy ($5700)

Jeudy has surpassed 50 receiving yards in each of his last five games and has quickly become Russell Wilsons’s favorite target. Take that duo into Tennesee here in week ten to play the Titans (who have allowed the 3rd-most fantasy points to wide receivers all year) and you could have a dangerous duo. Jeudy has averaged just over 8 targets a game in the last four weeks and looks primed to reign in a touchdown here in week ten.

Donovan Peoples-Jones ($4,300)

Amari Cooper is clearly the Browns' WR1, but DPJ has been about as consistent as they come all year for this struggling Cleveland team. He’s surpassed 70 yards receiving in four of his last five games and is almost a lock to see at least four targets from Brissett a game. I know, that’s not a ton–but at this value (and considering he’s been making the most of the opportunity) DPJ is a great play here in week ten. 

Best DFS Tight End Week Ten

Cole Kmet ($3400)

This on is tough, but just hear me out. Kmet has emerged as Fields’ #1 red zone option, seeing as he’s scored three touchdowns in his last two games. Kmet doesn’t do much to wow the fans in terms of yards, but what he can do is catch a few TDs and score some decent points at tight end (which is a relatively low-scoring position). If you took my Justin Fields pick from earlier, then you have to be comfortable putting all your eggs into the Bears’ basket–but if that’s fine with you, then you could be primed for a huge week here. 

Best DFS Defense Week Ten

New York Giants ($3900)

The Giants have been a pretty reliable play at defense all year. I especially like them here in week ten, however, because of their opponent–the Houston Texans. The Texans have given up the tenth-most points to opposing defenses all year, and the Giants are about as hot as they come. I think the G-Men will keep it rolling here in week ten with another huge defensive showing.
