DraftKings Reignmakers | Week 3 Risers and Fallers
Haven't been able to keep up with the DraftKings Reignmakers marketplace? Lucky Trader's Hunter Langille catches you up on all the latest risers and fallers ahead of Week 3's kickoff.
Risers: CORE Tier
- Joe Mixon (+$6.00, 46%)
- Amon-Ra St. Brown (+$6.5, 37%)
- David Montgomery (+$1.75, 33%)
- DeAndre Swift (+$3.5, 25%)
- Stefon Diggs (+$5, 13%)
In the last few days Core Joe Mixon player card NFTs have seen an increase of 50 percent. This is most likely the result of an upcoming matchup against the beatable Jets' rushing defense plus the Bengals being five-point road favorites. Also, Mixon is one of the best non-Superstar running backs, the others being D’Andre Swift who was limited last week due to an ankle injury and Saquon Barkley who is not available on this slate.
Unsurprisingly, Amon-Ra St. Brown has seen his Core floor price increase by 37 percent, as the Lions' second-year receiver is coming off of a 42.4 point game and has 100 yards or a touchdown in six straight games dating back to last year. He gets another great matchup at Minnesota in the highest projected game total of the slate.
David Montgomery has seen his floor price rise similarly to Joe Mixon, having a positive home matchup against Houston and being one of the best non-Superstar running backs on this particular slate. He is sure to be popular in DFS at only $5,900.
Stefon Diggs is off to a monster start this year and is coming off a 47.8 point outing against Tennessee in a game that was without Gabe Davis. Diggs’ price has continued to rise despite reports that Davis has made improvements on his ankle injury. The Bills are tied with Minnesota with the highest total on the slate and get to face Miami who just gave up 38 points to the Ravens.
Fallers: CORE Tier
- Josh Palmer (-$0.75, 28.5%)
- Robbie Anderson (-$0.54, 17%)
- DJ Moore (-0.41, 10.5%)
- Tyler Lockett (-$0.35, 12%)
- Derrick Henry ($-0.75, 7.7%)
Josh Palmer has seen his value plummet after a sharp increase before the Thursday night game against Kansas City where the Chargers were without Keenan Allen. Given the mediocre output relative to Mike Williams and the improvement in Allen’s injury status, it’s no surprise to see fantasy managers dump their Palmer shares.
Both wideouts in Carolina have seen over 10 percent drops on their Core cards due to the looming matchup against the stingy Saints defense and the Panthers look like one of the weaker offenses through two weeks.
Seahawks’ wideout Tyler Lockett has seen a drop in value despite coming off of a 100-yard game and a positive matchup against Atlanta. The plethora of options at wide receiver plus his signal caller Geno Smith looking more like Geno Smith last week leaves much to be desired from the veteran Seahawk.
Derrick Henry has had two poor showings to start the season, is on an 0-2 team who are underdogs at home in week 3, and hogs up Superstar status on a slate with four other Superstar running backs in plus spots. It is no surprise that The Big Dog’s stock drops by over 7 percent.
