Demetrius Harris and Cleveland Defense are also good values on both FanDuel and DraftKings.

Marvin Jones

He is projected for 9.5 FanDuel points and 12.3 points on DraftKings. Based on the player pool average points per dollar he is coming up -$1041 short of $6.6K on FanDuel and -$1261 short of $6.2K on DraftKings. There should be much better options (see below). Barring a significant lineup change consider him a daily fantasy player to fade.
