Welcome back to our weekly look at the best fantasy football values and bargain picks for Week 3 in DFS main slates. With injuries piling up and players seemingly swapping teams every few days, we are seeing the uncertainty appearing in the costs in DFS. Let’s take a look and see who can provide a big ROI in our lineups in Week 3.

Quarterback

Jimmy Garoppolo, San Francisco 49ers (vs. Pittsburgh)

FanDuel $7,200/DraftKings $6,200

Garoppolo had a nice bounceback performance with an 80.3 passing grade last week. This week, he’s at home and faces one of the worst pass defenses in football through two weeks. With this combination of matchup and price, Garoppolo is a strong value option this weekend.

Kirk Cousins, Minnesota Vikings (vs. Oakland)

FanDuel $7,200/DraftKings $5,100

On the opposite side of the spectrum, we have Cousins coming off a terrible performance in Lambeau Field. Despite this tough fantasy start in 2019, Cousins did finish as QB13 just last season. We know what this offense is capable of when clicking and the Oakland Raiders pass defense is prime for the picking.
