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.
Aaron Rodgers at SF – $9200
Few are capable of producing like the magnificent Aaron Rodgers. Despite losing Jordy Nelson and Davante Adams, Rodgers has passed for 10 touchdowns without throwing an interception. He’s a stud that with a good matchup, he’s worth paying up for.
Latavius Murray at CHI – $7500
The Oakland offense is actually firing on all cylinders. The Bears run defense has been terrible for years so this is a favorable matchup for Murray. He’s only the 10th most expensive running back so he’s an affordable play.
Karlos Williams vs. NYG – $6300
Whenever a competent backup like Karlos Williams draws a start with a cheap price, it’s a good idea to get them in your lineup. Williams is a chalk play across the industry.
Randall Cobb at SF – $8200
With Jordy Nelson out, Cobb has quickly become Rodgers’ most trusted wide receiver. He’s going to see plenty of volume and moves around the formation. Cobb is just the 6th most expensive receiver after exploding last Monday.
Jordan Matthews at WAS – $7000
At an affordable price, Matthews draws a favorable matchup against a banged up Redskin secondary. Leading the Eagles in targets, Matthews has a high ceiling and floor.
Percy Harvin vs. NYG – $5700
While I wasn’t on Harvin at the beginning of the season, the Bills have shown that they want to get him the ball. With no Sammy Watkins, Harvin should see extra looks against a bad Giant secondary.
Jordan Reed vs. PHI – $5600
Few have been as reliable as Jordan Reed. If not for a couple underthrows from Kirk Cousins, Reed could’ve had a massive game against the Giants. The Redskins continue to give Reed a lot of targets. At an affordable price, he’s a good play.
Matt Bryant vs. HOU – $4800
Matt Bryant is a nice option for three reasons: he’s a good kicker, he’s kicking indoors, and he’s cheap.
Indianapolis Colts vs. JAC – $4400
Few offenses are as favorable to play against as the Jaguars. Blake Bortles consistently takes sacks and will likely be playing from behind on the road. It’s the perfect recipe for a cheap defense.
