We break down the top DFS picks for Friday’s six-game slate of Madden action below. DraftKings will have its usual all-day classic contest, and here are some studs, value plays, and a defense you should consider. Set your lineup here.
Dak Prescott, Cowboys ($6,600) vs. Dolphins
Despite not getting great numbers from his receiving corps, Prescott has one of the higher DKFP averages (18.5) in the slate. Ezekiel Elliott can help where Michael Gallup and Amari Cooper fall short, and Prescott can get his legs going against Miami’s weak defense as well.
Mitchell Trubisky, Bears ($5,800) vs. Cardinals
How can the QB with the highest DKFP average be the cheapest starter in the slate? Although he hasn’t had a monster game in a few outings, his dual-threat abilities are some of the best we’ve seen. He could put up some huge numbers against the Cardinals.
Dalvin Cook, Vikings ($6,800) vs. Browns
Cook has scored more total touchdowns (22) than any other player in the slate and has cracked double-digits in fantasy points in nine of his last 10 games. He has over 2,000 rushing yards, but can also has 67 receptions.
James White, Patriots ($5,800) vs. Bills
White has nearly 2,000 rushing yards and has a staggering 78 receptions this sim season. He doesn’t score as often as Cook, but his hands are second to only Christian McCaffrey.
Odell Beckham Jr., Browns ($7,200) vs. Vikings
Beckham is flirting with 2,000 receiving yards and has caught the most touchdowns (20) in the slate. The Vikings’ defense is capable of applying considerable pressure and their secondary is solid as well. but Beckham’s spectacular catching can nullify the effect of good coverage.
Adam Thielen, Vikings ($6,000) vs. Browns
Thielen has the second highest DKFP average at his position and is up against the lowest rated defense in the slate. His price isn’t necessarily low, but it’s a steal considering that he could very well be the top wideout of the day.
Zach Ertz, Eagles ($5,400) vs. Titans
Ertz is the top rated tight end and has the most touchdown catches at his position. He’s put together three straight double-digit fantasy point outings and should be one of the most targeted players in the game.
Ben Watson, Patriots ($4,200) vs. Bills
Watson is still performing like a true stud with his 15 fantasy points per game. Buffalo does have a strong defense, but Watson consistently returns the most value at tight end. That makes him one of the top options in every slate he’s a part of.
Patriots D/ST ($3,100) vs. Bills
Josh Allen runs the show for Buffalo and puts of solid fantasy stats, but the Bills have scored less than 20 points 18 times this sim season. The Patriots have a great pass defense and Allen struggles to string together accurate passes. If New England only has to worry about the ground game, it should keep the score low.
