2018 Week 3 DraftKings Plays — Cash Game

Analysis By Position: RB | WR | QB | TE | DST | STACKS

2018 Week 3 DraftKings Picks — Tournament Plays (GPPs)

***Tournament plays are more volatile players (boom or bust) who can help differentiate your lineup in giant GPPs. Mixing a few of these names, along with the safer cash-game options, is a great way to construct a GPP roster***
