NFL AutoMattek Absolutes: Week 7

Davis Mattek takes you through his top plays for the upcoming NFL slate. Part of the popular Swolecast, Davis will give insight into his mindset to help you build better NFL lineups.

Week 7


Dak Prescott

This is a frustratingly shallow week at the quarterback position. Some of the guys that I have relied on in cash games and in tournaments thus far (Matt Ryan, Tom Brady, Carson Wentz, Kirk Cousins) find themselves not in the main slate on DraftKings which means that we have to look to some alternative sources. It does appear that Ezekiel Elliot has been granted a stay and will play in this game for Dallas but I do not at all think that means that Dak is not a good play. As we have noted on the Swolecast, you can play Dak and Zeke together as they are not necessarily negative correlation plays. Dak actually averages more FPPG than any other QB on the DK slate and has the best QB matchup when adding pace to the equation.
