NFL DFS: The Best Value Players This Week

This week, more than most, looks to be a slate where you should roster mid-tier players. No quarterback is priced above $7,000 on DraftKings, while nearly all running backs will cost less than $8,000 (the superhuman Christian McCaffrey being the major exception). As we usually find, there are solid options […]
