We all know the Patrick Mahomes, Christian Mccaffrey and Dalvin Cook’s of the world. If you drafted them in your redraft (or dynasty) leagues, they will be in your lineup every week that they are active regardless of matchup.

However, that does not mean that they are great plays, particularly for DFS. There are absolutely times you should be playing those big name, high price players in your DFS lineups, but there are times that they should be avoided. And this article will tell you which of those guys you should be avoiding any why.


Quarterbacks:

Patrick Mahomes $7,800 vs. Green Bay Packers



There is something wrong the the Chiefs, and there offense. Things just don’t seem right. In what should have been a get right game against the New York Giants, the Chiefs continued to look out of sync, only putting up 20 points. In the last 2 weeks COMBINED Mahomes has under 25 fantasy points. At his price point this week, I am staying away even with a plus matchup


Jimmy Garoppolo $5,700 vs. Arizona Cardinals



Despite having the game of his life against a normally good defense in Chicago, I fully expect to see the Jimmy G we are used to seeing. Arizona is 8th against fantasy quarterbacks, and Sunday should be no different. Jimmy G’s great game last week was mostly because of 2 rushing TD’s, not something you can expect from him on a weekly basis


Running Backs:


Joe Mixon $ 7,100 vs. Cleveland Browns



The Browns are the 5th best defense against fantasy running backs. Mixon had a great fantasy game this past week against the Jets, but that was because he scored 2 touchdowns, something I wouldn’t expect against the Browns. Last week he ran 14 times for 33 yards. YUCK! I’m absolutely fading Joe Mixon in all DFS lineups this week.


Cordarelle Patterson $6,300 @ New Orleans Saints
