Caron's Simply Soft, Red Heart Supersaver are two that I have used for afghans. Michaels puts them on sale from time to time.
They are big skeins so you don't have to do as many joins when starting new skeins of yarn. They are also machine washable and dryable.

If the pattern calls for knitting with two strands of dk, you can probably get away with worsted, if you want. I like Plymouth Encore for afghans that I want to be machine-washable. It comes in dk weight, as well.
