While I much prefer playing on DraftKings to FanDuel, sometimes we can find an edge by playing on different sites. Players are priced uniquely to each site, and there may be someone that jumps out to you that’s just too expensive to roster on DK. Generally, players are priced higher on FD than DK, so a red flag is always finding a player priced lower on FD. Here are some plays that I feel are underpriced on FD for the Week 10 main slate.
Kyler Murray ($7,700) at TB — Murray is the sixth-most expensive QB on DK, but is priced eighth on FD. Yet he has the best matchup of the group, facing a Tampa defense allowing the most fantasy points to QB. The Bucs strong rush defense only helps Murray’s value.
Saquon Barkley ($8,600) at NYJ — This feels like one of those must-capitalize spots on FD. Barkley is $8,800 on DK, and feels slightly underpriced there. So given the fact he’s even cheaper on FD projects him as the top scoring RB in terms of points-per-dollar.
Nick Chubb ($7,900) vs. BUF — Chubb is still probably a better play on DK, but the RB pricing falls apart after Barkley on FD. Chubb would be my second-favorite play if you can afford both. The Bills have been gashed on the ground in Buffalo by Miami and Washington the last two weeks. Chubb should dominate them in Cleveland.
Michael Thomas ($8,700) vs. ATL — Thomas is only $400 more on FD, and that’s not enough. He’s the most consistent WR in football, and has a near perfect home matchup against the Falcons.
Christian Kirk ($5,700) at TB — Kirk should be a popular play to go with Murray on both sites. His $500 salary increase on FD isn’t enough to stay clear of him. He has a great matchup, and there’s significantly less value on FD.
A.J. Brown ($5,500) vs. KC — Corey Davis is going to miss this game for the Titans, so Brown will be a popular play in all formats. He’s only $4,300 on DK, but given the lack of value on FD, he’s worth the $5,500 price tag. He has a good matchup as a home underdog against the Chiefs.
Travis Kelce ($6,700) at TEN — TE is a really tough position on FD, especially this week. Most plays are price significantly higher, with Greg Olsen being the ultimate example. Olsen’s considered one of the stronger TE plays on the FD slate at $5,100, but not even close to one of the best plays on DK at $3,600. Kelce having only a $300 price difference stands out the most.
Browns D/ST ($3,500) vs. BUF — The Browns are $1,000 more on FD than DK, but that’s the case with most of the D/ST plays. They host a lackluster Bills’ offense, in what should be a low scoring game. I can’t bring myself to pay up $5,000 for a D/ST play.
