Dalvin Cook and Travis Kelce are also good values on both FanDuel and DraftKings.

Jonathan Williams

He is projected for 6.9 FanDuel points and 7.6 points on DraftKings. Based on the player pool average points per dollar he is coming up -$2903 short of $6.8K on FanDuel and -$1837 short of $5.3K on DraftKings. There should be much better options (see below). Barring a significant lineup change consider him a daily fantasy player to fade.
