Welcome to Week 3 of our Matchup Report where I try to highlight players who are in a favorable position for the upcoming week. Last week was another solid performance as Atlanta Falcons wide receiver Mohamed Sanu, Jacksonville Jaguars wide receiver Marqise Lee and Tampa Bay Falcons running back Jacquizz Rodgers all came through and easily hit value.
Let's keep the good vibes rolling and highlight a few more players who can help build a solid DFS lineup for us this week.
They held Los Angeles Rams running back Todd Gurley to 2.1 yards per carry in Week 1, but allowed Gurley to haul in five passes for 56 yards. This is important because according to the My Fantasy Fix DFS Weekly Matchup Grid, the Colts rank dead last in the last eight weeks in receiving yards to running backs. Unfortunately, the Colts squared off against the Arizona Cardinals a week after losing David Johnson so it's difficult to get a great read on if their run game has really improved. The game flow should allow Crowell to be heavily involved in both the passing and run game so this very well could be the game we see Crowell return to form and at only $4,800 on DraftKings, get him at a very nice discount.
