NFL DFS Week 3: Best DraftKings, FanDuel daily fantasy football picks

For Week 3 of the 2017 NFL season, the daily fantasy sports site DraftKings is running a $4.5 million Fantasy Football Millionaire Maker. FanDuel is running a $2.75 million Sunday Million.

Before you enter a daily fantasy football lineup for Week 3 of the NFL season on DraftKings or FanDuel, you need to hear what professional DFS player Mike McClure has to say.

McClure has more than $1 million in career DFS winnings and is off to a hot start to the season. His roster easily cashed in Week 1, and he correctly called Marqise Lee's breakout in Week 2. The Jaguars wide receiver didn't even have a catch in Week 1 before exploding for seven catches for 76 yards on 12 targets.

McClure has exhaustively studied matchups, injuries, and depth charts for Week 3 and has again locked in his optimal DFS tournament lineup. And he's sharing it over at SportsLine.

One player he absolutely loves for GPPs this week: Eagles tight end Zach Ertz ($5,000 on DraftKings, $6,500 on FanDuel). Ertz is the second-most targeted tight end in the league through two weeks with 18. After recording five catches for 97 yards against the Chiefs, he's favored to put up huge numbers against a vulnerable Giants defense that just gave up five catches and a TD to Eric Ebron on Monday night one week after giving up a 7-59-1 stat line to Jason Witten.

Ertz is an absolute steal at $5,000, leaving you plenty of salary cap room to roster a big name like Odell Beckham, Jr. ($8,600 on DraftKings, $8,800 on FanDuel).

Beckham was a total bust on Monday Night Football against the Lions. But, he was eased back into the lineup last week and is now poised for a breakout game against the Eagles. He's only the third most expensive WR on DraftKings and FanDuel and will go under-owned this week after burning the DFS world in prime time. Take advantage of rostering him at a lower ownership rate and lower price -- it won't happen again. 

McClure has also identified a running back who is being significantly undervalued because of an off-day last week, but has a juicy matchup on Sunday and absolutely needs to be in your lineup. He could be the difference between winning your DFS contests and going home empty-handed.

So who is DFS pro Mike McClure putting in his optimal DFS lineup this week? Visit SportsLine now to see the full NFL Week 3 optimal lineup from a professional DFS player who nailed breakout performances by Marqise Lee and Ty Montgomery in Week 2 and has over $1 million in career winnings, and find out.
