- Jared Goff will be playing the Baltimore Ravens who allow the most passing yards per game.

DETROIT – Jared Goff, Austin Ekeler and Cooper Kupp may bring the most value to DFS lineups in Week 3. Each has a great matchup and is set up for a big day on Sunday.
Quarterback: Jared Goff (FD: $7,100, DK: $7,500)
Jared Goff will be facing the Baltimore Ravens on Sunday who is allowing a league-worst 376.0 passing yards per game. Goff has been surprisingly effective as the Detroit Lions’ quarterback this season and should have another big night.
Jared Goff DFS Value
- FanDuel $7,100
- DraftKings $7,500
The online gambling sites are favoring the Ravens by 8.0 points which should result in a favorable game script that allows Goff to pile on the yardage late in the game.
Running Back: Austin Ekeler (FD: $7,000, DK: $7,200)
Austin Ekeler will take on the porous Kansas City Chiefs rush defense this week. Kansas City is allowing over 200 yards of rush offense per game which should benefit Ekeler. He’ll have his usual impact in the passing game but could now really make an impact on the ground.
Austin Ekeler DFS Value
- FanDuel $7,000
- DraftKings $7,200
The best part about Ekeler is that his floor is very high due to his receiving abilities. Daily Fantasy Sports sites offering him at this price is a steal regardless of the matchup.
Wide Receiver: Cooper Kupp (FD: $7,900, DK: $6,800)
Cooper Kupp has established himself as the favorite target for Matthew Stafford. He leads the team in targets, receptions, yards and touchdowns and by a large margin.
He’ll be facing the Tampa Bay Buccaneers defense that is allowing 342.0 passing yards per game.
Cooper Kupp DFS Value
- FanDuel $7,900
- DraftKings $6,800
Kupp is currently getting over 45% of the yards in the passing game which may not be sustainable, but it makes him a must-play while it lasts. Even if the Buccaneers defense plays well, being the top option on this Los Angeles Rams offense is going to prevent many letdown weeks.
