- Evan Engram costs $5,000 on DraftKings and leads the Giants in receptions.
- Jarvis Landry is a high floor play with a potentially high ceiling.
- Donovan Peoples-Jones is a risky investment that could seriously pay off.
LAS VEGAS – Sunday Night Football features the Cleveland Browns taking on the New York Giants.
The Browns are looking to get back to their winning ways after a close loss to the Baltimore Ravens.
The Giants are in the thick of things at the top of the NFC East, which means any win could be important to them. Daily Fantasy players, meanwhile, will be looking for the best value plays for this intriguing matchup.
For this article, we’ll be looking at the DraftKings prices for these players.
Evan Engram – $5,000
Engram is a legitimate pass-catching threat from the Tight End position, despite some high profile drops this year.
He’s logged 50 receptions and 500+ yards this year, which is not incredibly inspiring, but he costs $5,000, and there’s definite upside here.
It’s also worth noting that 50 receptions leads the entire team. Engram is a player who can have very solid games, and he sees a pretty solid volume of targets as well – he’s had double-digit targets in three games this season.
Basically, for $5,000, you get a player who leads his team in receptions, who is a target hog, and who is also a solid red-zone target.
Final note: Engram is designated as questionable, so make sure he’s playing before you fire him up.
Jarvis Landry, $9,800
This is less of a value play than a consistency play, but it might still be worth making for DFS players this week.
SNF does not have a lot of offensive talent involved in this matchup, and Landry is the premier receiver on the Browns. Landry has a high floor, which makes this a very reasonable play for that alone, but his ceiling is what could make this valuable.
In his last three games, Landry has been targeted 30 times, and came up with 22 receptions on those targets. He’s put up 257 receiving yards and two touchdowns in those games.
The reason to invest in Landry here is that he is potentially a game-winner, but he also has a fairly high floor if he doesn’t explode.
Donovan Peoples-Jones, $6,900
This is less of a value play and more of an ownership play, but it does the job well.
Peoples-Jones has had two solid games in a row for the Browns, and runs high value routes, but at low volume. For example, two weeks ago, Peoples-Jones had 92 yards and a touchdown on only two receptions.
Last week against the Ravens, he had 74 yards on three receptions. At $6,900, he’s a risk that could absolutely pay off.
