It’s time again to look at the week’s fantasy football Sunday main slate of DFS bargains and value plays. Week 6 is in the books, sending us on to Week 7. It’s been a wild and unpredictable season to this point, but DFS allows us to continue to start fresh each week. Week 7 is shaping up to be a return-to-action week for some guys that have found their way on our list, and hopefully, my two-week-long tight end curse is over with. Let's look at the value guys for Week 7.
Jacoby Brissett, Indianapolis Colts (vs. Houston)
FanDuel $7,300/DraftKings $5,600
The Colts and Brissett return from their bye to face a coverage unit that we have graded 28th in the league this season. Brissett himself has not graded out as a high-level QB this season, but he has performed well enough fantasy-wise with 18.8 FPPG on DraftKings, 18.02 on Fan Duel. The Texans have allowed the ninth-most pass yards per game (289.33) and are in the middle of the pack as a unit allowing 22.3 points per game.
Kirk Cousins, Minnesota Vikings (@ Detroit)
FanDuel $7,300/DraftKings $5,800
Cousins and the Vikings passing game was on full display against the Eagles Sunday. Cousins finished the day with a 75.9% completion percentage and totaled 333 yards with four touchdowns to just one interception. This all added up to a fantastic 93.0 passing grade, his best since Week 2 of 2018. Detroit has allowed the fifth-most passing yards per game this season, which could help to make Cousins a good value play for the second straight week.
