DraftKings Week 5: Value WRs with 30 Point Potential

If you’re planning on playing the Millionaire Maker this week, finding those mid-priced Wide Receivers with the potential to have 30 point games or more to compliment your team is essential to winning. Here are 4 players I feel have that potential and are priced under $6,000.


Jeremy Maclin $5,600 – Maclin disappointed (well, the entire Eagles offense did really) last week with a 4 catch, 57 yard game. But, on the positive side, he was targeted a whopping 15 times and it continued his streak of 10+ targets this season. I’ve been saying this all year and I’ll say it again, Maclin is the #1 receiver on one of the best offenses in the NFL, and is priced like a #2. 7+ catches, 100+ yards and a TD seems almost likely in a matchup like this.

Michael Floyd $5,300 – This was supposed to be Floyd’s breakout year but he’s been quiet for the most part in his 1st 3 games. It may surprise you that he’s went for 5 catches and 110+ yards in 2 of his 3 games this season. He’s been held without a TD but that is likely a fluke, and with Arizona going against a full strength Denver offense there’s going to be a lot of Cardinals passing in this game which means a lot of targets for Floyd. He’s one of the few players at this price level who are capable of a really big game.

Kelvin Benjamin $4,800 – So let me get this straight, Benjamin catches 5 balls for 76 yards and a TD and his price goes down $1,000 to $4,800 this week against Chicagos D? Benjamin is a fantastic red zone target and his matchup is perfect against a Chicago team that turns it over a lot and gives up good field position. The Bears terrible secondary will have no answer for Benjamin and a couple of TDs would not surpise me.

Emmanuel Sanders $5,100 – Sanders has been unbelievably good this season and with Demaryius Thomas almost certainly getting covered by Patrick Peterson, Sanders should continue to pile on the receptions and yards. Wes Welker’s return hurts him a little but he still has 8-10 reception, 100+ yard potential in a game where Denver is projected to score 28 points.
