DraftKings Start of the Week
Spencer Ware – KC at IND ($6,800)

You really can’t go wrong with rushing leader, Ezekiel Elliot, but this matchup though?! The Colts have allowed the 4th most fantasy points to opposing backs, the 8th most rushing yards/game (118.6), and the 5th most rushing TDs (7). Taking it one step further, Ware ranks 3rd amongst RBs with 285 receiving yards, and the Colts are allowing an average of 55 receiving yards to backs (3rd most)… He might flirt with 200 all-purpose yards.

Sit of the Week
Mark Ingram – NO vs. SEA

You can’t drop him quite yet (he has SF in Week 9), but he really hasn’t done much to warrant fantasy squad, playing time action. Although he was decent last week, they welcome Seattle on Sunday.
