MARLON MACK IS A BAD DFS VALUE ON FANDUEL AT $6.8K AND DRAFTKINGS AT $6.1K

He is projected for 11.5 FanDuel points and 13.3 points on DraftKings. Based on the player pool average points per dollar he is coming up -$212 short of $6.8K on FanDuel and -$23 short of $6.1K on DraftKings. There should be much better options (see below).
