DraftKings Start of the Week
Matt Forte – NYJ @ PIT ($6,200)

Not that the Chiefs offense is a juggernaut or anything, but the Steelers defense was pretty impressive last week (Spencer Ware still went for 82 yards on 13 carries in the blowout). That said, Pittsburgh has allowed the 8th most fantasy points to running backs, and opposing backs have picked up an average of 73.6 yards receiving; which bodes well for Forte and the Jets. He hasn’t seen the end zone since his 3 TD performance in Week 2, but he should go well over 100 yards from scrimmage in this one, and I won’t be surprised if the TD-less streak is ended.

Yes, Jennings is better than Darkwa, Perkins, and Rainey. It doesn’t matter. If Jennings plays, leave him on the bench. If it’s Darkwa, no thanks. Perkins… Rainey? Nope, nope.
