NFL Draft Kings Guide (WEEK 3)

If you checked into Draft Kings Results Blogs for Week 1 and Week 2, then you know I’ve been making some money. This is great news considering all the money I’ve lost on betting on the games straight up, so I guess no good thing goes unpunished.

Despite this apparent heater I’ve found myself on Draft Kings wise, I want to preface this week’s power rankings and teams by saying I have a bad feeling about this week for some reason. It must be Opposite Day or something because I felt confident making my game picks (Which I normally suck at) and felt uncertain while making this blog. Back to back weeks of winning money seems fishy to me, so I’m destined to crash and burn soon.

Regardless of if that negative intuition is right or not, let’s take a look at my position power rankings for Week 3.

5. Jason Witten ($3,700) VS. Miami Dolphins

Cheaper Sleepers- None, but if you’re short on cash and want to roll the dice on a bounce back week, I would take TJ Hockenson ($3,500) VS. A very shitty Eagles secondary

Like I said above, I don’t really know how this week is going to go. I know the same can be said for just about every week, but there’s just something about the matchups this week that are running me the wrong way and has me feeling like a lot of low salary wildcards are going to dominate the scoring this weekend.

As far as what players I trust to have a solid week and thus played them in multiple lineups, I have The Patriots D, Ezekiel Elliott, Kenny Golladay, John Ross, and TJ Hockenson.

Like always, the only thing to do now is sit back and hope my players find the end zone once or or twice this week.

I already posted my NFL Picks for Week 3 so check that out if you haven’t.

That’s all for now, and good luck to everybody this week.
