Daily Fantasy Sports: NFL Lineup Tips for Sunday October 28, 2018

Take a look at our NFL Lineup Tips for DFS action – Sunday October 28, 2018:


There are TONS of options at the QB spot this week and really everywhere this week. This week is going to be one of the most interesting roster construction weeks of the year. There are options all over the board, which will make this a great GPP slate.

Patrick Mahomes: The Chiefs can basically score at will on anyone, so Mahomes is always in play. The Denver defensive scheme scares me off of Mahomes a little. They seemed to just try and limit big plays, which is where Mahomes really thrives.

Aaron Rodgers: Should be playing catch-up all game and he is one of the best in the world at taking advantage of that situation. The Rams secondary has struggled in recent weeks and the pressure tends to not bother Rodgers as much as it does most QBs.

Ben Roethlisberger: Browns have played a TON this season and are slowing down defensively because of it. Ben should’ve scored well in the first game this season, but he couldn’t throw an accurate pass. I expect that to change at home this week. Big Ben is going to be a great play at DFS sites this weekend as well! 

Jameis Winston: Bucs offensive coordinator is calling plays in a super aggressive manner, which is gold for fantasy points. They want to score on every single play they call. This produces massive upside if Winston is on his game.

Running Back

Todd Gurley: Possibly the best situation ever? Gurley is in an elite offense that just gives him all of the goal-line work. Gurley has produced 2 TDs per game and is on pace to set the RB TD record by one. I think the Rams probably want him to get this record at this point, but fading Gurley for the Rams passing game is still viable hoping they score from further out.

Joe Mixon: TB missing 3 of their best defenders and Mixon is really good at football. I expect the Bengals to lead most of this game, so Mixon could see a massive workload here.

James Conner: Should be able to take advantage of the Browns worn out defense with his massive usage recently. Conner has seen as many opportunities as you could ask for, which is why he is viable in all formats.

Kareem Hunt: Denver just got gashed by Hunt 4 weeks ago and we should expect the same thing here. Also, Hunt is clearly getting more involved in the passing game, which only increases the upside.

Tarik Cohen: Has seen 8, 9, and 13 targets in the last 3 weeks. Has the ability to pop on any given play and seeing big usage, worried about game-script.

Phillip Lindsay: With Royce Freeman out, we should expect Lindsay’s touches to increase and he is a great fantasy scorer when he gets touches. Should be trailing and the targets should be really nice

Wide Receiver:

Davante Adams: Going to be playing catch-up with Aaron Rodgers at QB vs. a bad secondary. Adams should see double-digit targets and is an elite red-zone receiver.

Odell Beckham Jr.: Not expensive compared to a lot of other top talents. Seeing the same volume as the top receivers and has just as much upside as anyone on the slate.

Juju Smith-Schuster: Should see the much better matchup vs. the Browns slot coverage which has been horrible this season. Has massive upside in a game that could see some scoring.

Brandin Cooks and Robert Woods: Woods will be more popular and is safer, but both are viable GPP plays especially if fading Gurley hoping for a 2 or 3 TD game from one of these guys.

Emmanuel Sanders: Seeing more and more volume recently. Works in the middle of the field, which is the Rams weakest point. Should be trailing for most of this game, which is good news for his volume.

Sammy Watkins: Massive upside at a cheap price. Notable strange home/road opposite of Tyreek Hill, who has always been more productive on the road for some reason. Watkins seeing more opportunity than the price tag and results show.

Tight End

Travis Kelce: Has smashed Denver in recent years and is in an elite offense that has a ton of TD opportunities available.

Jimmy Graham: Has been good this year without relying on TDs, which I think will come eventually. In a spot where Rodgers could throw 50 times, opening up a double-digit target upside in this game.

David Njoku: Seeing consistent usage with Baker Mayfield starting and should be trailing in this game more than they have recently, which means more passing opportunities for the Browns’ offense.

C.J. Uzomah: The only healthy TE on the Bengals roster and should see tons of snaps. Faces a Bucs team that struggles to defend anyone. Has 8 reception upside in a close game, which is massive at the price tag.
