Read to see Nate Hamilton’s Week 10 DFS Picks for DraftKings.

The key to building a tournament-winning DraftKings DFS lineup is to find value pricing on players who are set up to succeed each week.

The purpose of this article is to help you define which players you should be adding to your DFS lineups on the cheap, which will allow you to fill your remaining lineup with some elite chalk options.

Each week, I will give you a discount player at each position (QB, RB, WR, TE, DST) to help you build your winning lineup.

Now, let’s jump into my DraftKings DFS value picks for Week 10!

Week 10 DFS Picks

QUARTERBACK

Jared Goff ($6,500), Los Angeles Rams vs. Seattle Seahawks

The Seahawks defense has given up 300+ passing yards in all but two games this season. Jared Goff has the arm and weaponry to eclipse 300 passing yards in Week 10. In fact, he’s coming off a rested bye week following his 355 passing yard performance in Week 8.

Goff has thrown six interceptions on the season, and the Seahawks have recorded at least one interception in each of their last 6 games.

The good news? Goff should be able to counter any mishaps with multiple touchdowns against the defense that has also given up two or more touchdown passes in all but two games this season.

The Seattle Seahawks rank last in average fantasy points given up to the quarterback position.


RUNNING BACK

Antonio Gibson ($5,600), Washington Football Team @ Detroit Lions

Antonio Gibson has been fairly consistent for fantasy in 2020. He’s scored in each of his last two games and in five of his last seven. He’s involved enough in the passing game to give a bit of padding and confidence in your lineups.

Gibson has had just one game this season where he’s eclipsed 100 rushing yards (Week 7 vs. Dallas Cowboys). He has a great chance to earn his second such performance against the Lions defense, which has given up the most fantasy points to the running back position this season.

WIDE RECEIVER

Brandin Cooks ($5,600), Houston Texans @ Cleveland Browns

Brandin Cooks has been targeted nine times in each of his last three games. In the game prior to those three, he was targeted 12 times. Cooks has the 6th-most targets in the last four games played. Targets are great because they present opportunity, but it’s all about what you do with them.

In his last four games, Brandin Cooks has totaled 27 receptions on 39 targets for 372 yards and three touchdowns. I’d say he’s been nothing but productive with his target share.

In those four games, Cooks does not have a game with under 60 receiving yards and he’s scored in three of those four weeks. Brandin Cooks should have a great game given his recent production and the fact that he will be up against the Browns’ defense who have been bottom-tier against wide receivers.


TIGHT END

Evan Engram ($4,500), New York Giants vs. Philadelphia Eagles

It’s time to double down on Evan Engram!

In last week’s article, I recommended Engram at the tight end position, and he came through. He caught 5 of his 10 targets for 48 yards and found the end zone. Evan Engram scored the most fantasy points he’s had in a single game all season with 15.8 on DraftKings.

He now has five or more receptions in each of his last three games and has been targeted 29 times in that span which is most among tight ends. It’s clear quarterback, Daniel Jones trusts Engram and will continue to heavily target him in this offense.

Evan Engram will find himself against one of the worst performing defenses against the tight end position. The Philadelphia Eagles have given up the most average fantasy points to tight ends this year.

DEFENSE/SPECIAL TEAMS

Philadelphia Eagles ($3,600) @ New York Giants

Although the Eagles’ defense have given up fantasy points to the tight end position, they have done a nice job for fantasy purposes. They have combine for 29 fantasy points on DraftKings in the last two weeks.

The Eagles defense is much better at defending the wide receiver position. They have only given up 80+ yards to a wideout twice this season (Week 2, Cooper Kupp: 81 yards & Week 5, Tyler Boyd 125 yards). Besides those two, the Eagles have not allowed more than 61 yards to a wide receiver this season.

They have been even better against the run. Only allowing one running back to eclipse 80 rush yards this season (Week 2, Darrell Henderson Jr.: for 81 yards). The planets are aligning for both the Eagles defense and Evan Engram.

The New York Giants have given up the 5th-most average fantasy points to opposing defenses this season.
