Finding bargains and values in DFS is the key to any winning roster, both in cash games and tournaments. Our goal is to find you the best bargains for your cash games and tournaments. 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.

(Unless otherwise specified, these suggests are for FanDuel and DraftKings.)

Tyrod Taylor, QB, Buffalo Bills

We’re rolling with Taylor in back-to-back weeks after he rewarded us by picking on the inept Buccaneers pass defense in Week 7 (we’ll get to them more later on). Taylor has another juicy matchup against a Raiders defense ranked No. 24 in our pass-coverage grades. This game has the sneaky makings of a DFS shootout although the players are not priced accordingly. Taylor is just $5,900 on DK and $7,600 on FD — he’s a bargain on both sites but relatively better value on DK.

Russell Wilson, QB, Seattle Seahawks

Wilson put on a clinic in the second half against the Giants pass defense without Olivier Vernon and he is in for a bigger game in Week 8 against a Texans defense that is already down their top two pass-rushers and multiple players in the secondary. Texans games have evolved into shootouts fast and this one should be no different. Wilson is priced as just a mid-tier QB1 with the upside to win your GPPs.
