1. Christian Watson and Romeo Doubs
Check Watson’s injury status throughout the week, as Packers coach Matt LaFleur says he’s “day-to-day” with a hip injury, but if he’s cleared to play, he should be on your DFS roster (s).
Since Week 10, the rookie wideout has gone from being regarded as a bust in the first half of the season to being ranked among the top five Rookie of the Year candidates.
Regardless of Aaron Rodgers’ decline, when you become the four-time MVP’s favorite target, good things happen.
Among those positives were 26.3 DK points per game in four games between Weeks 10 and 13.
Watson could easily reach that mark again this week against a Vikings team that has allowed the most DK points (and the second-most FD points) to wide receivers.
If Watson is ruled out, Doubs becomes an even better option, as he has 11 targets in the last two games and will be heavily involved in the Packers’ game plan regardless.
2. Marquise Brown, Cardinals at Falcons
Trace McSorley and Hollywood have a history dating back to their days as Ravens teammates, so the speedy wideout would benefit the most if the backup QB started in place of Colt McCoy (concussion).
Even if McCoy passes the league’s protocol, we believe Brown has enough upside to be a good value at these prices.
The Falcons are one of the ten most generous fantasy defenses to receivers this season, and they will clearly focus the majority of their secondary bandwidth on DeAndre Hopkins.

3. Evan Engram, Jaguars at Texans
Engram has established himself as a top tight end, and he’ll be on many fantasy championship rosters this weekend.
The Texans have been strong against wide receivers, but they have struggled to contain tight ends who are above-average pass catchers. These prices are far too appealing to ignore.
4. Jared Goff, Lions vs. Bears
Goff has been a regular contributor to this column and has never let us down.
The veteran has a good rapport with offensive coordinator Ben Johnson, who was promoted this year and may get some head coaching offers as a result of Detroit’s outstanding offensive season.
Although several skill-position players have had breakout seasons, Goff is ultimately responsible for everyone’s success.
He has scored 29 or more DK points in two of the last three weeks, and now he faces a Bears defense that has allowed the eighth-most fantasy points to quarterbacks.
