Best Week 18 DraftKings Value Plays

One of the keys to building a good lineup each week on DraftKings is unlocking good value plays.

Best Week 18 DraftKings Value Plays


Jeff Driskel ($4K)  – Priced at the minimum, Driskel is starting for the Browns as the rest Joe Flacco and some starters. Driskel can run, which helps his floor/ceiling combo.

Carson Wentz ($4.5K) – Wentz is back, this time in a Rams uniform as Matthew Stafford, and some starters will rest as well. The last time we saw a guy come off his couch (Flacco), it looked pretty amazing. I’m not expecting those results, but this former 2nd overall pick can easily pay off this price tag.

HONORABLE MENTION:  So many value back-ups this week! A couple of others to highlight – Sam Darnold ($5.2K), Nick Mullens ($5.1K), Blaine Gabbert ($4.8K), Jarrett Stidham ($4.9K)

Running back:

Ronnie Rivers ($4K) – Kyren Williams has been ruled out for Week 18 for rest with the other Rams’ starters. So, getting Rivers at minimum prices is another opportunity that is too good to pass up.

Jordan Mason ($4.6K) – Christian McCaffery has been ruled out, and Elijah Mitchell is questionable. It would make sense to give the RB reps to Mason. At this price, we know running backs in Kyle Shanahan’s system are players we want to target.

HONORABLE MENTION:  Clyde Edwards-Elaire ($4.9K), Pierre Strong ($4K)

Wide Receiver:

Darius Slayton ($4K) – Slayton was on the list last week and came through with another big performance. He has a connection with QB Tyrod Taylor and against the Eagles secondary that we want to target.

Ronnie Bell ($3.2K) – Like the other 49ers I have mentioned, Bell should get a lot more opportunity in Week 18 with the starters resting.

HONORABLE MENTION:  Richie James ($3K), Keelan Doss ($3K)

Tight End:

Noah Gray ($2.5K) – Travis Kelce is out for rest in Week 18, which gives us the opportunity to play Gray at a minimum price. Make sure to watch the news that Gray will get a full workload.

Juwan Johnson ($3.6K) – In this case, this is a value play on a team that playing in a must-win game. Johnson has had three games in a row with a touchdown and has been a recent reliable target for Derek Carr.

HONORABLE MENTION:  Johnny Mundt ($3K), Tucker Kraft ($3.7K)
