Hey FanDuel Fantasy Football player!
Did you win last week? Last week’s value picks weren’t meant to be an entire roster but I entered them anyway and won a 50/50! Have a look!
Please remember that the list below isn’t meant to be an entire roster…..these are picks I believe will get you extreme value in order for you to spend up on certain players if you so choose. Of course you can also go with this entire lineup or just pick a couple or disregard the entire list and do your own thing!
The other thing I want you to remember is this; our goal is to get 2 Fantasy points per $1000 dollars of salary spent and if they exceed that then we have a great opportunity to win some real cash on Sunday. We fell just under 6 points of our goal last week but I think this roster is going to be just fine this Sunday.
QB: There are plenty of quarterbacks to choose from this week and I have decided that the best value is the Dolphins Ryan Tannehill ($8000). He had a big game last week against Jacksonville and his matchup this week against Buffalo should be a good one to exploit. The Bills defense is giving up 350 yards per game meaning this could be a good day for Tannehill! Tannehill does have a small issue with his ankle but he should be good to go this Sunday.
RB: I like the Raiders Latavius Murray ($7,000) on Sunday against the Browns on Sunday. Murray had a great game against the Ravens last week and while his price did jump $200 bucks he should still provide great value as he is the Raiders workhorse in the backfield. The Bills allow just 60 yards on the ground but Murray is a versatile back who is also a receiving threat as evidenced by his 3 catches for 22 yards against the Ravens last Sunday.
RB: I like the Chargers Danny Woodhead ($6,400) against the Vikings on Sunday. His price spiked by $200 bucks but Woodhead is well worth the price. With Melvin Gordon failing to live up to the hype Woodhead has been getting carries and seems to be a favorite target of QB Phillip Rivers as evidenced by his 6 passes for 68 yard output against the Bengals. The Vikings are a team that has demonstrated they have a difficult time against the run (135 yards allowed per game) so Woodhead should be good to go on Sunday.
WR: I really like tandems and I like the tandem of Tannehill and Rishard Matthews ($5,400). Tannehill targeted Matthews 7 times last week against Jacksonville and Matthews responded by catching 6 of them for 115 yards. Jarvis Landry ($7,600) is the sexier pick but with the Bills being a bit stingy against the pass thus far this season Matthews might wind up with the most targets and the best results on Sunday.
WR: I like the matchup the Browns Travis Benjamin ($5,400) has with the Oakland Raiders this week and I especially like the price. Benjamin has become a favorite target of QB Johnny Manziel and right now is the Browns deep threat and biggest offensive producer. The Raider are allowing 326 yards per game in the air and if Benjamin can do what he’s been doing (20 Fantasy Points per game) than he will provide great value on Sunday.
WR: Now it’s time to spend some money and the Steelers Antonio Brown ($9,300) and his matchup against the St Louis Rams is one worthy of exploitation. The Rams are allowing 205 yards per game via the air so while that may be a concern Brown is a proven commodity in DFS and a big time favorite of QB Ben Roethlisberger. I have zero reservations about rostering Brown this week and neither should you!
TE: I play Rob Gronkowski ($8,400) every single chance that I get and I will do so once again this week against Jacksonville. He’s worth every penny and I don’t even care how many people own him TE is where I am rarely contrarian and this week will be no exception.
K: I’ll go with the Dolphins Andrew Franks ($4,500) in this one. The over under is currently 43 points and since I believe the Dolphins will have a big day offensively I will go with Franks in this one.
Defense: I’m really like the Houston Texans ($5,000) defense on Sunday. They haven’t been performing very well yet this season but they have a tasty matchup against a so-so offensive Tampa Bay Buccaneers team. They should be able to at least put up 15 Fantasy Points on Sunday and if they do we will all be smiling on Sunday evening.
