NFL DFS Lineup Week 7 - FanDuel $1.4M Sunday Million

We cashed again in Week 6 and have only given away our entry fee once in five submissions this season during a productive start.

Cooper Kupp, Adam Thielen, and Travis Etienne scored 21+ points, and Evan Engram was our only player to not reach double-digits in a well-rounded team performance that finished in the money.

We are staying the course, constantly searching for value, and ready to keep the train rolling in Week 7. Our lineup picks for FanDuel’s $1.4M NFL Sunday Million contest are outlined next.

Quarterback: Jordan Love ($7,800)

Love struggled the most this season in Green Bay’s loss to Las Vegas before their bye week, where he completed just over half his throws and had a TD:Int ratio of 0:3. For DFS purposes this week, that seems well-timed.

He’s supplementing below-average passer efficiency with a healthy volume of weekly attempts (32.4) and over 100 yards rushing with a pair of running TDs to his name.

Denver is as cushy of a matchup off a bye week as Love could hope for, and we like him to bounce back with a fourth 20-point scoring effort this season.

Running Backs: Bijan Robinson ($7,500) & Isiah Pacheco ($7,400)

Robinson averages more than five yards per carry and leads all running backs in receptions during his rookie season. Despite over 100 touches, he’s only found the endzone twice, and both scores came through the air.

Tyler Allgeier’s rushing volume is a concern, especially around the goal line, but we’re giving Robinson a chance to cash in on another day of 15+ touches. Pacheco leads his team in rushing by a wide margin and has the fourth-most catches in the KC offense in 2023.

His 17 receptions are already a new career high through just six games, and Pacheco is on a four-game streak of 15+ carries as well. We can’t pass up on that volume at this cap number.

Wide Receivers: DK Metcalf ($7,700), Zay Flowers ($6,300) & Rashee Rice ($5,600)

Metcalf’s been quiet to start the season and has more games of four or fewer catches (3) than he does of six or more (2). On the bright side, his average target depth on completed passes is 11.5 yards, and Geno Smith threw his way 10 times in Week 6, a new season-high. Seattle gets the porous Arizona defense at home in Week 7, and we like Metcalf to take advantage.

Flowers leads the Ravens in targets, receptions, and yards this season and is still undervalued in DFS pools. He’s eclipsed 50 yards in all but one game and has gotten 8+ targets in three of his last four. We expect him to score double-digit points against Detroit.

Rice is a longer shot within our lineup but has caught his first touchdown pass and led the team in receiving on different occasions over the last two weeks. KC has been less consistent than usual in 2023, but maybe Rice will benefit from Mahomes trying to find someone other than Travis Kelce to rely on when games are close.

Tight End: David Njoku ($4,900)

Njoku’s floor of 3-4 catches per week seems to have been established despite a scary, recent off-field incident that left him badly burned.

He returned to the Browns lineup and caught three of four targets in Week 6, and should have an easier time against the Colts if his starting QB is back from injury. He’s got significant upside if that’s the case.

Flex: Kenneth Walker III ($8,800)

Walker continues to be the battering ram Seattle drafted him to be, averaging 4.2 yards per carry and ranking third in the league in touchdowns through only five games.

He’s gotten 17.8 carries per game over his last four, averaging 70 yards and 1.5 touchdowns. We’ll happily take another Seahawk this week against the Cardinals.

Defense: Detroit Lions ($4,000)

The Lions are top-ten in scoring and total defense this season and have had weeks with five and seven sacks when their pass rush is clicking.

The Ravens have struggled to punch in scores within the red zone over the last three weeks and have had to settle for a field goal more often than not when inside the opposing 20.

Containing Lamar Jackson when he breaks contain is the key; we’re confident in Detroit’s ability to do that.
