Week 3 FanDuel Lineup
Each week I will be releasing my favorite FanDuel plays for the weekend. These plays are decided by market prices and match ups. When I believe someone is a bargain that owners can benefit off of, this is the space that I’ll let my secrets out.
Let’s not waste anymore time, there’s money to be made.
Nick Foles vs. PIT – $6500
While Foles looked a lot better in Week 1 than Week 2, he’s back at home facing the defense that has allowed the most points to opposing quarterbacks. We know the Steelers will put up points and force the Rams to score. With a cheap price tag, Foles is a nice play with lots of opportunities against a terrible secondary.
Le’Veon Bell at STL – $8800
The Rams allowed rookie Matt Jones to run wild a week ago. Now they face the league’s best running back. Expect Bell to be fresh and hungry facing a Rams defense that has allowed the 4th most points to opposing running backs.
Devonta Freeman at DAL – $6500
With this pick, we’re looking at Freeman’s workload. He’s likely to see a lot of usage and his receptions should keep his floor pretty high. At just $6500 with a floor of 15 touches, Freeman is a solid play this week.
Brandon Marshall vs. PHI – $7400
Brandon Marshall is a chalk play this week. It looks like Eric Decker will be inactive, giving us reason to believe that Marshall will be a target hog. Squaring off with an Eagles defense that refuses to double opposing wide receivers (including Julio Jones), Marshall is a great play this week.
Allen Robinson at NE – $6600
Last weekend many learned about how good Allen Robinson can be. We know that the Patriots will put up the points necessary to force the Jaguars to pass. With Allen Hurns limited in practice, Robinson could be a target monster.
Donte Moncrief at TEN – $6000
Donte Moncrief showed everyone what he can do on Monday Night Football. He’s clearly better than Andre Johnson and appears to be the Colts’ second best wide receiver. The Colts draw a great matchup against the Titans’ secondary and Moncrief’s price still hasn’t matched his talent.
Rob Gronkowski vs. JAC – $8400
There is no tight end in the league who is in the same tier as Rob Gronkowski. Simply put, he is unstoppable. Capable of exploding any given week, Gronk is always a solid player for your lineup.
Josh Brown vs. ATL – $4500
Josh Brown is a nice option for two reasons: he’s a good kicker and he’s cheap.
Seattle Seahawks vs. CHI – $5300
While I typically don’t like paying up for defenses, this matchup almost seems unfair. With Jay Cutler injured, Jimmy Clausen will start for the Bears in Seattle. This could lead to multiple defensive touchdowns.
