A.J. Green

  • Christian Kirk is $5,300 on DraftKings while A.J. Green is $4,900.
  • DeAndre Hopkins is slated to miss this week’s game against the Detroit Lions
  • Oddsmakers have given the Arizona Cardinals an implied team total of 30.5 points.

DETROIT – The Detroit Lions are set to host the Arizona Cardinals Sunday afternoon at Ford Field.

Oddsmakers have listed the Cardinals as two-touchdown road favorites, and have given this game a modest total of 47.5 points.

Arizona Cardinals star wide receiver DeAndre Hopkins has just been placed on the reserve/Covid-19 list which should stand to benefit teammates A.J. Green and Christian Kirk by default.

Christian Kirk is $5,300 on DraftKings, while A.J. Green is $4,900. Legal sports betting sites have given the Cardinals -105 odds to score over 3.5 touchdowns on Sunday, which should make several Arizona players viable for DFS purposes.

A.J. Green $4,900

A.J. Green saw 10 targets (20.8%) on Monday, his highest target share in a game since Week 8. Green caught seven balls for 102 yards against the Los Angeles Rams on Monday Night Football.

A.J Green will operate as the #1 receiver in the Cardinals offense with DeAndre Hopkins being out of the lineup. At $4,900 Green is an elite pivot off the chalky DeVante Parker of the Miami Dolphins. Parker at $4,300 projects to be one of the highest owned DFS plays of the week, while Green should only be modestly owned.

The Cardinals implied point total of 30.5 is four points higher than the Dolphins (26), yet DeVante Parker will draw more ownership.

Christian Kirk $5,300

The Detroit Lions have struggled against deep play wideouts this season. Darnell Mooney, and Justin Jefferson both just recently cleared over 100 receiving yards against the Lions.

Christian Kirk is the deep play threat for the Arizona Cardinals and could connect on one or two bombs from Kyler Murray.

Detroit offers plenty of matchup appeal, allowing 9.0 yards per target (30th) and 14.1 yards per catch (30th) to opposing wide receivers.

Running back James Conner is also questionable for this contest, which may force the Cardinals to rely more on the passing game this week against Detroit.

With the highest team total of the week at 30.5 points (-115 odds), online NFL gambling sites should garner plenty of interest from DFS players. Nailing the right Arizona players on Sunday will be key to ascending to the top of DFS leaderboards.
