Phillip Dorsett and Tyrell Williams are also good values on both FanDuel and DraftKings.

Joe Mixon

He is projected for 9.5 FanDuel points and 11 points on DraftKings. Based on the player pool average points per dollar he is coming up -$2183 short of $7.5K on FanDuel and -$2051 short of $6.5K on DraftKings. There should be much better options (see below). Barring a significant lineup change consider him a daily fantasy player to fade.
