NFL DFS Week 3: Fanduel Picks for GPPs and Cash Games

Welcome to my first Fanduel NFL week 3 picks article! I hope everyone had a good summer and I’m happy to write more strategy articles for you guys. Be sure to check out our newly updated Fanduel NFL DFS strategy guide for this season.

QB

Patrick Mahomes – $9,200

Mahomes is my favorite overall QB on the slate. This game has a super high total and Damian WIlliams is OUT so the CHiefs will rely even more on the passing game.

Other Picks: Dak Prescott, Tom Brady, Lamar Jackson

RB

Ezekiel Elliott – $8,800

The Cowboys announced Zeke will get a full workload in week 3 and he gets a dream matchup going against the Dolphins who allow 30+ FDP to RBs.

Other Picks: Austin Ekeler, Dalvin Cook


WR

Sammy Watkins – $7,100

Last week, Demarcus Robinson had the big game but Watkins still leads the team in targets. This game should be a shoout and I think Mahomes will rely on Watkins early and often.

Other Picks: Phillip Dorsett, Josh Gordon, Kenny Golladay, Nelson Agholor, Amari Cooper

TE

Evan Engram – $6,400

Daniel Jones is the new starter and I think this upgrades Engram who should see an increase in targets this week against Tampa Bay.

Other Picks: Travis Kelce, Greg Olsen

FLEX

Marquise Brown – $6,100

My favorite stack this week is Mahomes + Watkins + Brown who should all have big games in this shootout environment. With Andrews a bit banged up, I expected Jackson to rely on Brown even more.

DEF

Cowboys – $5,000

I’m stacking the Cowboys + Elliott in most of my tournament lineups.

Other Picks: Vikings, Patriots
