  1. Dameon Pierce $4,800 The 4th round draft pick for the Texans looks like he will get the workhorse role on this team. Dameon Pierce took this starting job with only seeing 11 preseason carries. He did average 7.82 yards per carry though and scored a TD in that game. He should have the opportunity to touch the ball 20 times per game if the Texans can stay in games and he is only priced at $4.8k in week 1. The Colts were the 6th ranked defense against RBs on DraftKings last season so if Pierce ends up being chalk at this price, then we can get away from him in GPPs.


  1. Dallas Goedert $4,500 Dallas Goedert closed the year strong last season averaging over 20 DK points in 4 of his last 5 games. He is a familiar face for Jalen Hurts this year and they should be looking to pass more with the addition of AJ Brown. Brown could eat into Goedert’s target share this year, but I still like him in all formats at this price and he is a good stack option with Hurts.


  1. Kadarius Toney $4,100 The Giants new head coach Brian Daboll could turn this team into a pass-happy offense and Kadarius Toney looks to be the clear WR1. We saw flashes of how good Toney can be last season before he was injured, and he had 32.6 DK points in his best game where he caught 10 of 13 targets for 189 yards and a TD. Rookie WR Wan’Dale Robinson is also popping up in our Domination Station Optimizer at the min price of $3k and he is listed as a starter on the Giants depth chart


  1. Wan’Dale Robinson $3,000 Kadarius Toney’s teammate, rookie WR Wan’Dale Robinson, is also popping up in our Domination Station Optimizer at the min price of $3k and he is listed as a starter on the Giants depth chart. He should be the slot receiver on this team and they can make designed plays to get him in open space. His $3k price tag opens a lot up for the rest of our lineup so I am willing to take some shots on Robinson.

  1. Jahan Dotson $3,400The 16th overall pick in the 2022 draft should have a full-time role in this Commanders offense and he is only priced at $3.4k opening week. If he does play well then this will probably be the cheapest that we see him priced all season long. We have him along with these other 2 cheap WRs that I mentioned as the top 3 Fpts/$ plays under $5k at the position this week with Rondale Moore now out.
