Hey FanDuel Fantasy Football player!
Did you win last week? I entered last weeks picks in a GPP and a 50/50 and it turned out even better than expected. 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.
QB: We're looking to an old reliable this Sunday and I like the Patriots Tom Brady ($8,800) against a Dallas Cowboys defense that ranks 19th against the pass. Brady is averaging 26.19 Fantasy Points per game at FanDuel and I don't see any reason as to why he won't do so again this week against Dallas.
RB: I like the Pittsburgh Steelers Le'Veon Bell ($9,000) against the San Diego Chargers in San Diego on Sunday. The Chargers are allowing 126.8 rushing yards per contest and that bodes well for Bell who's averaging 23.2 FanDuel Fantasy Points per game. Bell is also a valuable receiver and with QB Ben Roethlisberger out Bell is a great option for Michael Vick.
RB: I like the Baltimore Ravens Justin Forsett ($7,200) on Sunday against the Cleveland Browns. Forsett is averaging just 9.3 FanDuel Fantasy Points but last week showed signs of new life with 150 yards on the ground. The Browns are allowing 146 yards per game on the ground this season and this could be another big game opportunity for Forsett on Sunday.
WR: I really like tandems and I like the tandem of Brady and WR Julian Edelman ($7,700) on Sunday against the Cowboys. The Cowboys are prone to allowing big plays and that's what Edelman does and with him averaging 19 FanDuel Fantasy Points per contest he should be able to make that 2 points per $1000 spent and then some on Sunday.
WR: I'm going to go with the Eagles Jordan Matthews ($6,800) against the Saints in Philadelphia on Sunday. He's averaging just 11.91 FanDuel Fantasy Points per game but he is the Eagles #1 target and with an over under currently at 49.5 and a Saints passing defense that has allowed receivers to score 7 touchdowns and 6 plays of over 40 yards I think it's safe to assume he'll have plenty of balls thrown his way on Sunday.
WR: I like the Ravens Kamar Aiken ($5,800) against the Browns in Baltimore on Sunday. The Browns are allowing 277 yards per game via the air and 5 plays of over 40 yards. Aiken might not be QB Joe Flacco's #1 target but if WR Steve Smith doesn't play he will be and remember last week Flacco threw 7 balls his way last Sunday with Aiken hauling in 5 for 77 yards and 1 TD. This could be a great value play on Sunday!
TE: This week lets go with the Broncos Owen Daniels ($4,900) against the Raiders in Oakland on Sunday. Tight ends have been torching the Raiders all season long with 32 catches for 388 yards and 6 touchdowns. Daniels is only averaging 6 FanDuel Fantasy Points but it doesn't seem to be reaching to believe that Daniels, who already scored twice this season, can double that output against a very bad Raiders team at defending against their opponents TE's this season.
K: This week lets go with the Patriots Stephen Gostkowski ($5,000) against the Cowboys on Sunday. Gostkowski is averaging 13.33 FanDuel Fantasy Points per game, the over under is set at 49.5 and the Patriots are currently a 9 point favorite so look for plenty of points from Gostkowski on Sunday.
Defense: This week I'm going to reach a bit and take the Jacksonville Jaguars ($4,300) against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers on Sunday. The Buc's QB Jameis Winston has thrown for 7 interceptions and has been sacked 9 times this season. The Jags on the other hand have 9 sacks this season and only 1 interception but if you want to win a GPP the Jags should be very little owned and this could be a great pick on Sunday.
Good luck this weekend Fantasy Football owner.
