3 Millionaire Maker Under the Radar Plays at Wide Receiver
Last-minute tinkering for the Sunday Millionaire Maker on DraftKings? If you’ve made several different lineups and are looking for variance, here are three guys who you may not have used and should consider.
Torrey Smith $4,800 – Where the heck is this guy? Steve Smith has been stealing the show. There are a lot of little things adding up. First off, Torrey leads the NFL in pass-interference penalties drawn. Secondly, with Cincinnati, Pittsburgh, Cleveland and Carolina, those aren’t the easiest matchups. Thirdly, as much as I don’t believe in revenge games when you aren’t a QB in control of the ball, Steve is a rare exception, and he just dominated. Lastly, Torrey has been overshot by Flacco a handful of times, and it’s simply bad luck in the early going. With an O.U of 48.5 as slight underdogs in doors and that the Colts are missing several people on defense, it’s only a matter of time until Torrey has an outstanding game.
DeAndre Hopkins $4,800 – Andre Johnson has been downgraded to questionable, and even if he plays, Johnson hasn’t been the elite receiver we are accustomed to seeing. Hopkins has shown signs of explosion, and leads the team with 291 yards and three TDs. Let’s also keep in mind that Houston is playing a weak pass defense in the Dallas Cowboys, and this will be their first game without starting corner Morris Claiborne.
Louis Murphy $3,000 – Remember this guy? He was that WR on Oakland for a bit, hopped around for a while and is now on Tampa. With Mike Evans out, Murphy is the No. 2 receiver. Murphy led the Buccaneers in targets, catches and receptions last week against the Steelers, and he got most of that production in the second half after Evans went down. The Saints defense is weak, and Tampa Bay should be throwing quite a bit as an underdog.View all posts by Nick Juskewycz
