NFL DFS: DraftKings Week 7 Sleepers, Value Plays

Hello folks, welcome to a new addition in our DFS rotation where we look at the DraftKings Week 7 sleepers and value plays that can help take your lineups to the next level. Here, we take a look at some guys you can round out your roster with after spending up for the Derrick Henrys and the Davante Adamses of the slate.

Generally, I would consider value plays as QBs under $6k, RBs under $6k, WRs under $5k, and TEs under $4k.

QUARTERBACK

Tua Tagovailoa ($5,500)

We covered Tua for Week 7 a bit earlier in the week thanks to the bald wonder CJay. The Wolf also has him ranked as the QB8 this week above the likes of Joe Burrow, Derek Carr, and Matt Ryan. Tua returned last week to throw for 329 yards with 2 scores off a hip injury. A home game against the Falcons presents a positive matchup for the native Hawaiian, who is seeing his receivers start to break out and produce at high rates. Both Jaylen Waddle and Mike Gesicki put up over 20 DK points last week and should see high volumes once again. This is an extremely low price for a starting QB against a lower-tiered defense.

RUNNING BACKS

Devontae Booker ($5,300)

With Saquon Barkley sidelined once again, Booker is thrown into an RB1 workhorse role in the Giants backfield. With 20 and 16 touches in back-to-back games, you can pencil Booker in for 15-plus touches once again. Last week was a tougher matchup against the Rams, but now versus the Panthers, he should have some more success, especially with the team being without Golladay, Toney, and possibly Shepard now in the offense. Even more, touches for the Giants RB1 this week.

Devonta Freeman ($4,400)

The Ravens’ backfield has been an absolute mess this entire year, but some injuries may clear it up just a bit. Latavius Murray, who had been the default RB1, is doubtful to play this week. Ty’Son Williams hasn’t been a factor whatsoever since roughly Week 2. Instead, Freeman is left as the likely RB1 for Baltimore after carrying the ball 9 times for 53 yards and a score last game. He actually hasn’t looked that bad carrying the rock, whereas Bell looks rather slow and ineffective.

WIDE RECEIVERS

Mecole Hardman ($4,300)

Tyreek Hill is currently listed as questionable, but after practicing on Friday he seems extremely likely to suit up. Regardless, Hill could be a bit limited in the offense this week, along with Travis Kelce nursing an arm injury. Hardman and the Chiefs expect to be in a shootout this week against the Titans in the highest projected scoring game on the slate. All it takes is one touchdown for Hardman to pan out, but his volume and target share has taken a step up throughout 2021.

Amon-Ra St. Brown ($4,100)

The rookie has averaged over 10 DK points over his last three games for the Lions. Detroit is really struggling to find quality pass-catchers outside of TJ Hockenson, so St. Brown’s emerging presence is a good thing. With 23 targets over the last three games, he’s building a rapport with Goff and surely working his way up the depth chart. The Lions are huge underdogs, meaning they’ll be throwing a lot playing from behind. Just pray he avoids coverage from Ramsey this week.

TIGHT END

Ricky Seals-Jones ($3,700)

RSJ worked out perfectly last week for us scoring 15.8 DK points at only $3k. With the lack of other pass catchers in Washington, RSJ should once again have an elevated role in the offense. The Packers are a tough matchup, but outside of Terry McLaurin, there’s really no quality receiver to take away receptions from Seals-Jones.
