QB-Best Value Pick: Sam Darnold, Carolina Panthers
A surprise revelation in the 2021 season, Sam Darnold has played well with the Carolina Panthers after a disappointing early career with the New York Jets. Easily averaging his best fantasy output, Darnold comes in averaging 26.9 fantasy points per game including 29.3 in his last three games.
With around a 3% ownership rate and a soft matchup against the Philadelphia Eagles (52.4 Pro Football Focus coverage grade, No. 18 rank at points given up to the position) The Panthers quarterback could be a sneaky tournament option against a struggling Eagles team.
Darnold’s salary on DraftKings comes in at $6,600 on DraftKings and $7,600 on FanDuel.
