The Week 5 NFL SuperDraft DFS slate is in the books and while we had some strong plays, there were a few disappointing and non-productive players.
Let’s review our Sunday plays and start preparing for Week 6 of the NFL.
Trey Lance, San Francisco 49ers (1.65x score multiplier)
It was a rough day for the rookie quarterback and this 49ers offense. Lance was unable to find the end zone but still put up a good performance as he finished the day with 25.71 fantasy points. He threw for 192 passing yards and paired it with 89 rushing yards. Lance can open up this offense and could become a dangerous weapon.
Daniel Jones, New York Giants (1.4x)
Jones left the game early Sunday with a head injury during the second quarter. Not much was going for the offense though as Jones left with just 98 passing yards on 13 attempts.
Top running backs
Chase Edmonds, Arizona Cardinals (1.6x)
The Arizona Cardinals offense didn’t seem as explosive as they normally are Sunday against the 49ers. Edmonds was one of the many players with a mediocre performance after being announced active right before the game. He only rushed for 15 yards on six carries, with 19 receiving yards on the day. It will be rare to see this Cardinals offense be more on the low-scoring side, but Sunday was just one of those games.
Derrick Henry, Tennessee Titans (1x)
Henry was once again a force on the field as he found the end zone three times against Jacksonville. That’s impressive enough, but he also rushed for 130 yards. Henry finished the day with 33 fantasy points, a big fantasy day even with just a 1x multiplier.
Top wide receivers
Chris Godwin, Tampa Bay Buccaneers (1.35x)
Tom Brady threw for 411 and five touchdowns, but somehow Godwin was barely involved and got none of the scores, finishing with seven receptions for 70 yards. It’s hard to stomach that, but Antonio Brown and Mike Evans combined for four touchdowns and 237 yards, which shows this offense is tricky to target a weapon of the day for Tom Brady.
Deebo Samuel, San Francisco 49ers (1.25x)
Pairing Samuel and Lance was one of my favorite pairings of the day, but it resulted in disappointingly low production. Samuel did find the end zone once on the ground, which helped boost his fantasy points to 18.5 on the day. Receiving wise, he had three receptions for just 58 yards, which is not the usual outcome for him. Overall, this 49ers offense struggled against a tough Arizona Cardinals defense.
Top tight ends
Dalton Schultz, Dallas Cowboys (1.65x)
Schultz was my favorite tight end play of the slate, and he did not disappoint. He was on the higher ownership side of things, but he paid off without having to find the end zone, hauling in six receptions for 79 receiving yards. At least one touchdown would have put him over the top as a top play of slate though.
Darren Waller, Las Vegas Raiders (1x)
It may be time to abort the Darren Waller train, as the Las Vegas Raiders have now struggled in back-to-back games. Waller finished the day with four receptions and just 45 receiving yards. With no score, it was a disappointing day for the tight end, and it has made it hard to trust Waller or this Raiders offense.
