Finding bargains and values in DFS is the key to any winning roster, both in cash games and tournaments. Our goal today is to find you the best bargains for your entries. We will specify what games to use each bargain in and how to capitalize on them in each given week.
High ownership is to be expected from some of these bargains, and we will touch in that in the writeup, so they should be used in cash games. However, some of these players are also excellent buys for tournaments and won’t have high ownership percentages. Generally speaking, quarterback is the one position where ownership tends to be spread out the most — in other words feel free using these bargains both in tournaments and cash games.

It’s always good to get exposure to the QBs who play in the game with Las Vegas’ highest projected over/under total. It’s even better when that exposure aligns with a bargain buy like Taylor this week on both DK and FD. Taylor is just the 26th-most-expensive QB on DK and the 22nd-most-expensive on FD. Taylor matches up against a Falcons defense that allowed the most fantasy points to opposing quarterback in 2016 and will still be without top pass-rusher Vic Beasley.
The Bengals made the change at offensive coordinator, promoting Bill Lazor in Week 3, and it was night and day for their offense. Dalton got back to the basics by peppering A.J. Green with targets and finished with 212 yards and two touchdowns on just 27 attempts. Browns top cornerback Jason McCourty is an improvement on Joe Haden from 2016, but he can’t take away Green. The Browns have allowed the seventh-most fantasy points to opposing QBs this year after allowing the second-most in 2016.
