We have had some nice week with our running back picks and we’ll be looking to keep it going in week 7. Like always we will be listing our top running backs who are high-priced, mid-priced and low-priced. This way you have options to put in any lineup you create.
Make sure to enter DraftKings $1.25 million “Play Action” and take home $50k from just a $3 buy-in. Here are our top plays for DraftKings this week at running back. Let’s get after it in week 7.
Top DraftKings high-priced plays ($7,000-plus)
DeMarco Murray, Tennesee Titans ($7,200)
DeMarco Murray has the best matchup as his Titans face the Colts who are dead last in the league in fantasy points given up to the running back position this season. Murray has put up over 20 Draftkings fantasy points in every game this season except for last week. Murray is a consistent/safe play which makes him a perfect option for a cash lineup. Despite his matchup, Murray is still only the 4th highest priced player at running back this week.
Top DraftKings mid-priced plays ($5,000-$6,900)
Spencer Ware, Kansas City Chiefs ($5,800)
With Jamaal Charles listed as questionable for this Sunday, Spencer Ware immediately becomes a solid option to roster. If Charles does not play then Ware will be a very popular play, especially at $5,800 on DraftKings. The Chiefs play against the Saints which is always a great matchup to exploit since New Orleans ranks 30th overall in the NFL in giving up fantasy point to the running back position. Make sure to keep updated on Charles’ status this week and if out then roster Ware.
Top DraftKings low-priced plays ($4,900-under)
Jacquizz Rodgers, Tampa Bay Buccaneers ($4,300)
Jacquizz Rodgers came out of nowhere last week and put up 20.9 DraftKings fantasy points against the Carolina Panthers. This week the Buccaneers have an easier matchup in the run game as they take on the San Francisco 49ers who rank 27th overall in fantasy points given up to running backs this season. Rodgers was being used in both the running and passing game which should continue this week. Rodgers is a great value play if you need some salary relief.
