Arizona Cardinals DFS Spin
Kyler Murray completed 28-of-34 passes for 316 scoreless yards and one interception in the Cardinals' 31-19, Week 3 win over the Jaguars, adding seven carries for 19 rushing yards and one touchdown. The Cardinals did all of their scoring via three rushing touchdowns, the first coming from Murray on a play-action boot from one yard out in the first quarter to get the scoring started. James Conner then rushed for a pair of inside-the-five touchdowns in the second half. With DeAndre Hopkins (ribs) playing at less than 100%, A.J. Green (5-112) and Christian Kirk (7-104) both went over 100 yards. Murray gets a tough Week 4 draw with the Rams but remains an obvious high-end QB1 no matter the matchup.
Los Angeles Rams DFS Spin
Matthew Stafford completed 27-of-38 passes for 373 yards and four touchdowns in the Rams' Week 3 win against the Bucs. Stafford tormented a Tampa secondary that had allowed a 72 percent completion rate headed into Week 3, picking them apart underneath with Cooper Kupp and Tyler Higbee, and over the top with DeSean Jackson. The Rams' passing attack was unstoppable on a day where they didn't even pretend to establish the run against the fearsome Tampa front four. Stafford looks like the final piece in Sean McVay's progressive, efficient offensive system. He should be considered a top-5 option in Week 4 against Arizona in what shapes up as a high-scoring affair.
