NFL Week Two Daily Fantasy Core Plays – Roster Josh Jacobs

Alvin Kamara $8,200

After going 13/97/0 rushing and 7/72/0 receiving week one, Kamara is still listed at a fair price on Draft Kings for Week Two. This week, he and the New Orleans Saints travel to L.A., where they’ll take on the Los Angeles Rams. The spread on Rams-Saints, according to vegasinsider.com is (O/U 53) and (Rams -3). The game is tied for the highest O/U on the slate, so we want to get some exposure. Kamara gives us prime exposure. The Rams can be had by good pass-catching backs. Case and point: Christian McCaffrey put up 45.9 DK points on them in week one. Look for Kamara to see plenty of work, in both the run-game and pass-game. He makes for a solid DFS core play week two.

Josh Jacobs $4,700

Jacobs saw 23 carries in week one. He rushed for 85 yards and two touchdowns. Jacobs took the majority of snaps and carries at running back for the Oakland Raiders. For someone with so much talent and bell-cow type usage, Jacobs’ $4,700 price tag on DK is too good to pass up. The Kansas City Chiefs-Raiders game is tied with the Rams-Saints game for the highest Vegas game-total on the slate. Vegas has the line set at (O/U 53) with the (Chiefs -8). The Chiefs defense allowed the second-most DK points to running backs last year. Playing Jacobs gives us exposure to this game and provides leverage against Patrick Mahomes and Sammy Watkins in GPPs, or you can game-stack the three of them. Either way, get some shares of Josh Jacobs in your DFS lineups this week.

LeSean McCoy $4,700

McCoy enters his second game with the Chiefs in Week Two. In the season-opener, McCoy had 10/81/0 rushing and added a 12-yard catch. Now that the Chiefs lost Tyreek Hill for a few weeks, we can expect to see more involvement from the Chiefs running backs in the offense. McCoy Looked good last week on his touches. Now that he has more familiarity with the offense and is expected to see an uptick in usage, McCoy makes a lot of sense for DFS lineups at only $4,700 on Draft Kings.

Mark Andrews $3,800

Andrews went 8/108/1 on eight targets against the Miami Dolphins in Week One. This week, he has another good matchup against the fast-paced Arizona Cardinals, who after one game, ranked 27th out of 32 teams defending the tight end position because of the huge game T.J. Hockenson had against them. With Baltimore Ravens quarterback Lamar Jackson looking unstoppable, Andrews is locked in as a core DFS play for the second week in a row. The line for the game- (O/U 46.5) and (Ravens -13.5)

More Players for Week Two DFS

In this section, I’ll list some of the players who just missed my core plays. These are players that multi-lineup DFS players should get some exposure to. They all project as high-upside plays. You can also use some of them to fill in your lineup after your core is established.

Brandin Cooks $6,300

Cooks had a poor stat line in Week One, only catching two of six passes for 39 yards. However, we can leverage his bad performance and play him this week with lower expected ownership. Cooks will face his former team the Saints at home. This game has the highest Vegas total on the slate. Playing Cooks gives us exposure to the game and leverage against Robert Woods and Cooper Kupp, who both outperformed Cooks last week and will probably see higher ownership. Stacking Cooks with Goff makes a lot of sense for GPP lineups.

Sony Michel $6,200

Michel scored a dismal 1.4 DK points last week. This week, his price has gone up $300 from last week. If there was ever a time to jump on a player in GPPs, and DFS in general, this is it for Michel. After letting everyone who played him down in Week One, his ownership is bound to be lower this week. Just in time for a matchup with the Dolphins. The Dolphins tackling was horrendous last week, and the New England Patriots are 19-point favorites in the game. Michel should bounce back this week in a big way.

Jared Goff $5,900

Goff is playing at home against the Saints in Week Two. This game has the highest projected points total (53) on the slate. With all of his weapons healthy and at his disposal, Goff is an intriguing option for DFS this week. In GPP contests with a lower number of entrants, you can stack Goff with all of his receivers in the hope of capitalizing on a big game from him. In larger-field GPPs, it would be wise to choose one or two of his weapons to stack him with.

Josh Gordon $5,800

Gordon only saw four targets in week one. He caught three passes for 73 yards and a touchdown. In week two, the Patriots travel to Miami to take on the Dolphins. The Dolphins were shredded by Lamar Jackson and company last week. Tom Brady and Gordon should have their way with them this week. Gordon and Brady make for a high-upside GPP stack this week.

High-Upside Low-Owenership GPP Plays for Week Two DFS

JuJu Smith-Schuster $7,500

Antonio Brown $7,000 (If he plays)

Ben Roethlisberger $5,800

John Brown $5,200

Tyrell Williams $4,400

Danny Amendola $3,900

Chris Thompson $3,900

Darren Waller $3,300
