DraftKings Start of the Week
Dolphins vs. Browns ($3,000)
Rookie quarterback + road game – top receiver = A defensive dream. Sure, rookie quarterbacks are all the hype right now, but this will not be a coming out party for Cody Kessler. The Browns have allowed the 3rd most sacks (3 per game), while the Dolphins have the 5th most at 2.5 per game. This one could be ugly.
Sit of the Week
Eagles vs. Steelers
Currently the #4 defense in fantasy, the Eagles defense has been a popular pick up… They’ve played the Browns, and Bears. They’re in for a different level of competition Sunday when Big Ben, and the Steelers come into town. Roethlisberger does have 3 INTs on the year, but he’s only been sacked twice, has arguably the best receiver in the game, DeAngelo Williams has been as good as any RB, and they’re averaging the 4th most points per game. Philly will be tested, and has a shot to prove their defense is legit, but odds are they fail the exam.
