McClure All Over McCaffrey

One of Sportsline's Mike McClure's top Week 3 NFL DFS picks is Panthers running back Christian McCaffrey at $8,900 on FanDuel and $8,700 on DraftKings. McCaffrey struggled in a rain-soaked loss to the Buccaneers last week on short rest, but he's had three extra days off heading into Week 3 and the volume will be there for him to make a major impact.  The former Stanford star has 47 touches through two weeks and generated 262 total yards and a pair of scores already. He's running more authoritatively, with seven broken tackles after recording 15 during the entire 2018 season. His ability to create additional yards by breaking or evading tackles against an Arizona defense that is allowing 4.6 yards per carry should create a tournament-winning ceiling for McCaffrey in Week 3. The Ravens gashed the Cardinals for 5.5 yards per carry last week and rushed for nearly 200 yards. Lock in McCaffrey as one of your top NFL DFS picks for Week 3.  Source: CBS Sports

Ravens-Chiefs Rain Impacts on Fantasy

Fear thy rain!  The field (at Arrowhead) is natural turf, but it’s Gucci natural turf. This field actually has heat coils that can keep it from freezing over. Do you think it doesn’t have superior drainage? It will be wet and a bit more slippery than a dry field, but nothing crazy. You may see players slip here and there, but not enough to significantly benefit or detract from an individual player and even then, can you guess which players will slip? I actually like Kansas City and Baltimore’s run games a bit better. Anytime the field becomes a bit more slick, offenses tend to benefit since defenses are inherently reactionary. You may have expected Baltimore to run more to keep the Kansas City offense off the field anyways. This gives a bump to Lamar Jackson and Mark Ingram.  I also think LeSean McCoy is in a smash spot. Between being the primary RB on the KC offense and being used on a slicker field, he’s going under the radar this week. Remember the 32 rushes for 156 yards and 1 TD game he had in Buffalo during a blizzard?  Source: TheFantasyFootballers

All Eyes on Lamar Jackson

Lamar Jackson did it with his arm in Week 1, then did it with his arm and his legs in Week 2. He offers an insane combination of floor and ceiling and now has a matchup with the Kansas City Chiefs, the most explosive offence in the league.  Jackson and Patrick Mahomes rank second and third in Passing Net Expected Points (NEP) per drop back, so this game should have some fireworks. It almost feels like the Chiefs-Rams matchup from last year that hit 105 total points.  Source: PaddyPower News

Kevin Newman is a Bad DFS Value on Fanduel at $3.4K

Kevin Newman is projected for 7.9 FanDuel points and 6.3 points on DraftKings. Based on the player pool average points per dollar he is coming up -$835 short of $3.4K on FanDuel and -$614 short of $4.3K on DraftKings. There should be much better options (see below). Barring a significant lineup change consider him a daily fantasy player to fade.  Nonetheless, expect Kevin Newman to be a reliable fantasy starter the rest of the season. His 15.39 projected fantasy points puts him at #27 behind Jordy Mercer and ahead of Garrett Hampson. Source:
