Fantasy Football: DFS Week 3 tournament picks

The goal of this weekly DFS tournament picks article is to identify at least one player per week who is in the winning DraftKings Milly Maker lineup at less than 15% ownership. Last week, we nailed the Josh Allen and Stefon Diggs stack, which stunningly came in at a combined 14% ownership and accounted for a whopping 69.78 DraftKings points (most on the entire slate). Unfortunately, we airballed on Will Fuller, who went down with a hamstring injury.

And with that, we are on to a new week of NFL action. Here are the DFS tournament picks for the Week 3 main slate.

RB Kenyan Drake, Arizona Cardinals

I have not been able to pinpoint exactly where ownership is going to come in on the Cardinals' offense, but my guess is that the masses will flock to Kyler Murray and DeAndre Hopkins. While Murray and Hopkins have been hogging all the glory, it's Drake who has a prime get-right spot against a cupcake Lions defense that Aaron Jones shredded in Week 2.

To opposing running backs this season, the Lions have allowed 408 yards (most), 4.3 yards after contact per attempt (most) and 12 runs of 10-plus yards (most) at a rate of 21% (most). Absolutely mouthwatering numbers.
