FANTASY FOOTBALL PRESEASON WEEK 3 (DFS + BET GUIDE)
BEAST DOME NATION.
A very special BEAST THE ODDS is coming for Friday. Stay tuned for that, with that being said. Here is the breakdown of the Preseason Football Games for this Thursday.
GIANTS @ BENGALS
Eli Manning vs. Daniel Jones will be watched closely. Eli may only play in a Quarter of this game, get DJ his lionshare of snaps as they prepare him for the future, but not Week 1. Golden Tate will get a lot of action in this one as they look to get him a lot of reps now since he will be suspended first 4 games to start the season. Rod Smith will get a lot of carries as well as there is no reason to give Saquon any work this preseason.
Andy Dalton and the Bengals offense needs to score TDs. Joe Mixon should be in there for a TD drive, who knows we can even see the Bengals starters playing the entire half with multiple TDs. Tyler Boyd is the early #1 target for Andy Dalton.
RAVENS @ EAGLES
Battle of the birds. Lamar Jackson will not have such an easy time against this defense. We can see Eagles D for a half, the Ravens have a lot of RBs to play. None I would consider for DFS this week. Throwing the ball Snead and Chris Moore have been the go-to’s. Not looking for fireworks from Ravens offense.
No Wentz tonight, Eagles will be boring to watch. Could see the other starters for a half, and we will see Josh McCown. Main thing to watch is Miles Sanders/Jordan Howard, a situation that screams RBBC for the entire season. No love for Eagles O.
PANTHERS @ PATRIOTS
Panthers rolling with their starters this week, not going to look pretty for this offense playing against the Super Bowl Champions. Any success would be huge success. Expect CMC to play about a quarter at most, not important for him to take a lot of hits.
Maybe Brady plays, maybe not. Brian Hoyer will get a lot of action regardless. Good last tune up matchup for him, safe play to play an entire half if not more. Rest of Patriots is a toss up, but Jakobi Myers is quietly racking up Preseason MVP.
REDSKINS @ FALCONS
Falcons are committed to getting that TD this week. Expect Matty Ice to play an entire half again, expect Ito to get more snaps than Devonta. Calvin Ridley can always bust one loose with no Julio or Sanu, who has returned from a sore knee. They do not need to see much. Hooper is looking good.
Redskins will give Haskins more snaps, he will get a lot of PT. Good opportunity for him to do work and run a lot, especially against backups. No true #1 WR has emerged from the group, and the RB situation will be flooded tonight. Nothing super in love with.
JAGUARS @ DOLPHINS
If we do not see Nick Foles and the starting offense for an entire half, why are the Jaguars even trying. Leonard Fournette could use some reps, but expect mostly Alfred Blue and Armstead to take the snaps. Not a great fantasy offense to watch in the preseason, but will important to see who Nick Foles likes as his #1 WR.
Dolphins going to give Magic and Rosen probably 1 Half each. Neither QB is amazing, but both should be able to get a TD. The RB situation will be interesting to watch Mark Walton looks like a DFS sleeper in my eyes.
RAIDERS @ PACKERS
Both offenses are clicking right now. Carr is on fire, Glennon is on fire, even Peterman is having some fun this preseason. Lots of weapons, but DeAndre Washington to me is the guy you want of the bunch, quietly a preseason MVP candidate.
Packers offense will be scoring tons and tons of TDs. Backups are looking amazing, Boyle and Kizer are on fire, the WR core is super deep. Jake Kumerow is ready for a mini breakout performance.
BEAST OF THE NIGHT
MATT RYAN – ATL
At home and looking in Mid-Season form, expect Matty Ice to be on the field for at least 1 TD if not more. The Falcons offense has enough depth at WR that they do not need Julio in a preseason matchup to make or break Matty Ice. Last week we saw the Falcons leave him in the for nearly the entire 1st Half, lots of dropped TDs prevented the official stat. This week Matty Ice may be able to get even 2 TDs.
