Monday’s matchup between the Kansas City Chiefs and Baltimore Ravens at M&T Bank Stadium will wrap up the NFL’s Week 3 action. Two of the league’s most dynamic teams will duke it out, and we’ll get to see two MVP frontrunners in Patrick Mahomes and Lamar Jackson along the way. Finding value with in a game with so much DFS upside can be difficult, and we’ve identified a few options on DraftKings worth considering.

Top value plays

Demarcus Robinson, WR, Chiefs D/ST ($3,000)

Robinson is one of five Chiefs with at least 10 targets. Sammy Watkins has had 12 balls thrown his way and is listed as questionable with a concussion. If he’s less than 100 percent or ruled out, Robinson could get more opportunities to make plays. Robinson is a downfield threat capable of finding space while the Ravens’ secondary is occupied by covering Travis Kelce and Tyreek Hill.

Harrison Butker, K, Chiefs ($4,000)

Both the Chiefs and Ravens have elite kickers. Justin Tucker ($4,200) is arguably the best kicker in the game and is in the same tier as Butker as far as price goes, but I think Kansas City will have to settle for more field goals because of Baltimore’s defense, which has given up a league-low 11 points per game.

Ravens D/ST ($3,800)

Baltimore’s defense has tallied 15 DKFP in two games this season. While it hasn’t faced a dynamic team like Kansas City yet this year, forcing a turnover and getting a few sacks could lead to solid production. Making this play isn’t likely to result in a ton of fantasy points, but squeezing in value options like this could give you room to maximize your lineup’s high upside plays.

Miles Boykin, WR, Ravens ($3,400)

Boykin is even with Mark Andrews in targets (9) and has tallied seven receptions for 75 yards. Marquise Brown and Andrews are the most dangerous passing threats, but Boykins’ 6’4” frame could make him a dangerous red zone threat. The second-year wideout only notched 13 receptions last year, and already has seven catches in 2020. He’s on the rise and could be worth a punt play because of his increasing exposure.

Demarcus Robinson, WR, Chiefs D/ST ($3,000)

Robinson is one of five Chiefs with at least 10 targets. Sammy Watkins has had 12 balls thrown his way and is listed as questionable with a concussion. If he’s less than 100 percent or ruled out, Robinson could get more opportunities to make plays. Robinson is a downfield threat capable of finding space while the Ravens’ secondary is occupied by covering Travis Kelce and Tyreek Hill.
